HYC Check In

This morning showed a modest loss - only .4 - which proves that for my body, walking an hour a day just isn't cutting it. My hubby returns home tonight, and I don't know who is more excited, me or the dog! Next week I'll be able to resume a regular gym schedule, which is necessary and good.

I wasn't very successful in my exercise goal of doing some arm exercises this week - I have this old lady hip pain that surfaces whenever I do a lot of walking. This week was agonizing, and I was stretching and icing, and taking ibuprofen when I needed to. Which led to staying off my feet after walking each evening. So I'm grateful that I've been able to basically maintain by watching my calories. That Daily Plate is such a blessing! Hope everyone else had a successful week!

At least the scale is moving in the right direction. Good for YOU for sticking with it.

Do you have an exercise band? Those are pretty good for arm exercises. I used them when I had foot surgery a couple years ago and was limited to sitting or lying down exercises.

still a loss! you will find that right balance of exercise, and dont just pay attention to what the scale is saying either. I exercise and the scale often doesnt move, but I did drop a size in my shirts, so sometimes you have to go by other signs that things are working rather than just the scale.
