And this is what it looks like this morning:
I definitely would call it a successful planting! I'm thinking I might even pull a little bit off Thursday morning to add to a sandwich for the hubby to take to work. We will see, I almost hate to start pulling it off, it looks so pretty :)
In April I went to the doctor for my wonky knee, I was starting to get very tired of the pain. I ended up getting an injection of cortisone in it and a higher dose of anti-inflammatory and it has helped tremendously. That said, I knew that I really needed to do something about my weight as well to help not just with my knee, but my overall well-being. I am not a big fan of any kind of fad diet, while they seem like a good idea at the time, trying to make them a permanent lifestyle change isn't always feasible and in some cases not even a good thing for long term health. I ran across a thing on Pinterest that I found very interesting--it's more about counting calories and balancing it with your activity level. My goal is to lose about a pound a week--I am now in the 8-10 pound loss range--yay! And I'm not even closely counting, with a bit more lee-way on the weekends. I've got a long way to go to get where I want to be, but it really does help when you can actually see some progress and in the way you were hoping to do it. I can definitely tell that my pants are fitting differently, I'm hoping that next year at this time, NONE of my wardrobe will fit me anymore and that I can donate/consign it all :) I need to get the seat on my bike fixed, I'm hoping to start riding it to help increase my activity level.
