1st Week at Home

My babies that I came home to. It was sad that my little Mittens wasn't here to greet me, but I still have these two that make my day! :)

Well, my first week wasn't what I planned for it to be! I got home and was told that I needed to relax the knee. I had to come home early from Fitness Ridge due to a Staph Infection in my Left foot's little toe and a knee sprain on my Right leg. So, rested I am! I did clean my house somewhat and decided to call my fitness trainer and get back on his schedule. I ended up going to him and working out this past Friday. It felt so good to work out again. Even though it was for only an hour and only on upper body and abs. Next week baby!

I did cook all of my foods from the cookbook from Chef Cameron. It was really hard to find some of those ingredients!!! But, I found them and cooked away! I ate like I was supposed to, but found that I didn't drink as much water as I did while at FR! I did face some temptations when I went to the Orlando Magic Basketball games (NBA). Foods there aren't made for diets. But, I did find The Carvery that had fresh roasted carved turkey sandwiches. I asked for the carved turkey minus the bread roll! Good, huh?

Okay, I weighed in today ... I've lost 2.5 pounds this week without even trying (except for my food intake). I now weigh 177.5! Woohoo! I'm happy about that. I was at 180 when I left Fitness Ridge on January 29th.

I plan on putting together my Street Strider today and hopefully begin riding it either tomorrow (knee pending) or Monday. I can't wait! I do plan on taking some classes this week at my gym. I stopped by there and picked up their new Spring Schedule. I'll let you know how that goes this week!

More to come ... I'm still on my Weight Loss Journey! ... Dee Dee
