BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
Yep…that's where I am – the dreaded plateau. Basically, you know it's going to happen, but I somehow believed I could magically surpass it. Well, I can't, and it sure is testing my patience! I know I didn't put the weight on overnight, and it's not going to come off overnight either.
I have seen the numbers moving a little more on the scale lately, so that's encouraging. I know I'm still losing and my body is actually shifting the weight. I also know muscle weighs more than fat, and I have most certainly been building muscle.
I've also had a few other obstacles in my way. A couple of months ago, I strained my left calf. That put me out of commission, with running, for at least a month. The healing was a slow process, but I was able to still do other machines to get my cardio done.
Then…the holidays, well, everyone had to deal with that! I made it through okay, but there was certainly a lot of temptation. I was able to indulge a little. I still got in my exercise and didn't set myself back.
New Year 's Day started off with a *bang* (note the sarcasm). I'm still not sure what I had, but I was miserable! I had a fever, chills, body aches. I assumed it was the flu, and thought it'd just have to run its course, and maybe it was. Then I was covered in some type of rash which the doctors could never figure out. I was in the hospital for two days. But I finally started feeling better.
I was out of commission for about 10 days. I started back at the gym VERY slowly. But, by the end of that week, I was working out hard again, and it felt SO good! Honestly, I think that's what got me back to feeling so much better so much faster.
So, now I'm back at it…hard! I am signed up for the Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon in New Orleans on March 4 which is five weeks from this Sunday. My goal is to finish. I'm going to run as much as I can, but I know there will be plenty of walking, too.
My obstacles these next five weeks: at least three birthday parties and Mardi Gras.
I have received so many notes of encouragement, and I am so thankful for all the support from family, friends, co-workers and even people I don't know. I can't say thank you enough. Those kind words mean more than anyone will ever know!
