Goodbye May

Time for another update. The good news, my foot injury has healed; I'm still wary of running, but can walk with no problems.

I had been feeling a little burnt out with the weight loss routine so decided to try a planned diet break. I chose a stretch of eight days and ate at maintenance instead of a calorie deficit. I really enjoyed it and now feel refreshed and ready to keep going.

Today was a gorgeous day of sunshine and light winds...perfect for cycling. I did my longest ride yet: 10 miles!

Onward to more adventures!

Still learning

When I reached my mid-goal of losing 100 lbs I was afraid my subconscious would decide that was enough and begin to sabotage my efforts. Happily, I've learned that I can keep on after reaching a milestone as the weight continues to drop at the usual slow pace.

Not so happily, I have experienced my first injury this time around: sprained ligaments in my foot. Extremely painful and it has completely derailed my exercise routine. I will be patient and wait until it has completely healed before any long walks and wait some more before I start running again.

The weather has done an about-face after the heavy snow on Monday. We're looking at a stretch of beautiful, warm and sunny days ahead. Hello, garden!
