Ever since Jason and I got the new grill the other day I’ve been a grilling machine. I told him that I’d like to have a grill to help lose weight. I know that when I was at home with my parents I lost weight by eating healthy and by cooking our food on the grill. I love the way it tastes too on the grill. I miss cooking with my parents but it’s ok. We can start our own family traditions now.
Thursday I went for a run while Jason put the grill together and I had a horrible time doing the run and finishing up the run. I ended up hobbling back to the house almost in tears. Between the horrible shin splints I had, the tightness in my hips and the pain in my lower back I decided to call it a day and stop working out for the day. Yesterday I walked some and the shin splints came back but not as bad. I guess since it’s been years since I’ve actually ran and worked out outside, I have to get used to it again. Today I didn’t run and took it easy. Tomorrow I’m going to try to head down to the track instead and see how things go then. I’ve upped my potassium intake and water intake too. Today has been drinking nothing but water, a glass of orange juice and a cup of coffee. Other than that it’s been good and no soda which I know has a ton of sugar and makes me feel like crap. This time last night I was ready for bed. Tonight I’m up a little longer.
I’ve had a small headache today and I’m sure it’s from lack of caffeine. I’m sure it’s in shock that I didn’t drink any soda and no sweet tea. I put 3 sweet ‘n lows in my coffee and a little bit of coffee creamer (sugar free of course). Tonight for dinner I had one chicken leg quarter that had some George’s Bar-B-Que sauce on it and I had some fresh grilled squash and onions. Yum. And I had water with my meal. Tomorrow will most likely be leftovers since we still have a ton of chicken leftover and some veggies. I’m looking forward to losing this weight once and for all. I hope I can lose enough by the time we leave for Disney in June so I won’t have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe and if I do then I want it to be for losing weight and not gaining it. 🙂
