So I am down between 10-15 pounds since mid-May. I really don't want to say I lost 15 pounds because then I would have to admit to myself how heavy I was at my heaviest point. Yikes.
My Uncle* offered to buy me some calorie counting software for my Treo, but I think I am going to decline. I tried calorie counting for about 2 weeks and I became a little obsessed with it. Even though I felt satisfied, I wasn't getting enough calories so I was not losing anything. Once I increased my calories, I started dropping weight again. Who knew? So just being aware and following a low-glycemic way of eating for at least 90% of my intake seems to be doing me well.
Spinning is still going well. I am having issues with my right leg. I have tarsal tunnel, and lately my ankle has been turning in after a year of compensating for the pain in my foot. And now my knee is starting to give trying to compensate for my ankle. SO I talked to the spinning instructor and she suggested minimal lifting off of my seat. I will be going to an orthopedist soon, so I am hoping physical therapy and strengthening exercises are in my near future.
I'm bummed because I can really tell that my cardio-endurance is increasing...I don't want to lose that!
