Week Three and staying the course

I am in my third week back on the program.  It has been a challenge but I am staying the course.  My family doctor put me on some heavy duty antibiotics for a horrible sinus infection.  I found out that the antibiotic that I am taking has a side effect of rapid weight gain <_< so  I have been drinking a ton of water and staying true to the menus because the last thing I want to see, at my weekly weigh in, is jump in my weight.  My first week I lost a little over a pound and then last week I lost three pounds.  So very excited!!  Good news, two more days of antibiotics.  Yippee!!

I have some younger co-workers who are working hard to get back into shape and are trying to eat as clean as possible.  They are a great inspiration to me and have helped me stay true to the program.  They encourage me to drink my water and if I go to long with out eating they remind me it is time for my snack or go have lunch.  It's wonderful when people care and reach out to help.  

 

February 1st is my goal date to begin walking workouts again.  I have been in physical therapy for a bum shoulder and hips that are out of whack.  I'm hoping I will have made enough progress to once again add exercise back into my daily routine.  Missing my walks!! 

That's all for now :)

Sounds like you are very motivated!  Keep up the great work.  It is very frustrating when something "gets in our way" of our goal.  IE:  your antibiotics.  Just remember they could be the reason you (may have) a small gain.  I have been sick and weak and I haven't done my exercises for over a week (actually closer to two) and I don't like it, but my body needs to heal so this is the best thing for me right now.  

Your work group sounds amazing.  It's awesome when women support each other!!

Danalynn, wow, you are so on track. Despite being ill, you are sticking to it. Thats great! And it has paid off.

So wonderful that you have supportive coworkers who are keeping an eye on you. thats so helpful and kind of them.

They say it takes 21 days to make a habit, and it sounds like you are there!

I hope you get to feeling better, and glad you are off of the antibiotics soon.
