I'm currently in my third week of my challenges , however, the burpee challenge was a no go for me. As many of you know (if you've been keeping up) I started out doing the modified burpee's and even tried to do the pregnant modified burpee's but to no avail they were just too difficult for me to do at my current weight. I experienced much pain with my knees and many times my right knee did this popping thing (ouch). It kind of hurts me to have to start something and then stop it because I truly did attempt but instead of doing damage to my body I called off the burpee's until I was in good enough shape to even do the modified ones properly.
A bit of a downer? Sure, but it's also a motivator as well. I'm even more motivated to get to a weight where it wont be so difficult to do them and so I press on.
Drmarctagon, (my best friend) invited me to do the DietBet which was a great opportunity but being that I don't own a scale I wasn't able to accept.
Having a scale in my home seems to put more pressure on me because I'll be so focused on the number and I don't want to do that. I like my regular weigh-ins which are once a month and that's what I'll continue to do.
Speaking of weighing in I did go to the Dr. to get a spur of the moment weigh-in and found I'd gained 6lbs which crushed me (yet another downer) so I'm now only at 91lbs lost. Meaning I haven't made it to my 100lbs lost yet. I'm determined to push myself even though people keep telling me it could be muscle that I'm gaining and not just putting back on more weight.
So far I'm in my third week of all of my challenges and I'm keeping up pretty well and I've been incorporating some cardio in there as well. My goal is to keep moving no matter what and that's what I intend to do.
Currently, I've got the worst toothache which is causing me to feel pain and drained at the same time but I want to push on. I can't let anything get in the way of my progress so I continue to pray over that along with the rest of myself.
There is no time to feel down I have to move forward. I've got this because God promised it to me.
Let the journey continue forward. Press start again!
