June Challenge – Day 2

On June 3, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

Day 2 of the challenge and I (reluctantly) made it a complete rest day.

In fact, this is almost as close to my resting metabolic rate as you can get without me staying in bed all day long.  No activity worth noting on the unit, few steps, etc.  I took it very easy on my bronchitis-crappy lungs and on my sides that I still don’t know why hurt after just some of my runs (not stitches, these are over my hip bones).

I have to say, though, that patience is NOT my strong suit.  I’ve been fairly quiet today, as well, other than some errands and a doctor’s appointment.  But I do think a trip the gym is in order.  I don’t think a long run will happen, but I’m itching for some physical activity (and if you had told me that I would ever say that a few years ago when I weighed 320lbs?  I’d laugh at you.  Really laughed at you).  I just have to wait for the kids to go to bed.  Which should be happening VERY shortly.

I am slowly trying to increase my calories to see if that helps.  My scale, at one point in the day (yes, I’m OCD.. it’s one of my failings) did drop to 180.5 at one point, but I’m not certain if that was simply because edema was going away with the rest day yesterday or not.  Too soon to tell.
