I enjoyed this past week...
And then the weekend came.
For some stupid/strange reason, I don't like the weekends. The weekends are supposed to give me all the time in the world to myself - to relax and rejuvenate and get rid of the stress from the week.
But for me - it's the total opposite.
Call me crazy, but I enjoy my work week and the whole routine it brings to my life. It feels structured, and I feel in control. On the weekends, I find I think too much...and I don't feel in control of myself. Eventually this will all catch up with me I'm sure - eventually I will have to relax and have some fun.
Anyway...on to the important stuff!
I went to my lap-band support group meeting on Wednesday - that was probably the highlight of my week. I really enjoy seeing all of my fellow lap banders and see how each and every one of them is doing. I was really happy to see my friend Ginny who had recently been in the hospital - and was really happy to see that she was doing better. I also learned more about my band and how it works - there were details about it that I didn't even know about - I knew I had to eat slowly with it, but didn't realize just HOW slowly I am supposed to be eating. All along, I have been eating WAY more quickly than I should be. I took into consideration everything that was shown to me and am proud to say I have not had anything stuck since Wednesday! I am finding now that I have had a recent fill also, that I am eating less. I also stay fuller longer, and that's a good thing.
I went back to yoga tonight too. I haven't been in a couple of weeks and was really missing it. I love my yoga class on Sundays. It gives me the opportunity to unwind and relax. Most of all tho - I don't have to think about anything!
I worked out five times this week - and am proud of that. The Crossfit classes with Kendra were particularly brutal with Thursday's class being the hardest. It was an hour full of exercises that worked on all the small core muscles and such. Each exercise, we did 100 reps worth! By the end of the class, I was dizzy and felt like throwing up. Needless to say - the pain in my abs finally went away this morning. Must have been a good workout!
I hope everyone has a great week...
