Day 224 – My Buddy, the Ice Pack

Well, I have my first knee injury.

Luckily, it doesn’t seem to be too terrible, just kind of twisted.  Either way, I couldn’t risk it not being 100% for this Saturday’s race.  So I’ve spent the past couple of afternoons like this:

Day 224

This week has been pretty uneventful so far.  Tomorrow is weigh-in and I’m really hoping for a big loss this week.  I know that working out is causing me to lose weight faster, but I’m dropping inches rather quickly and I have found that I prefer that…most of the time.  I haven’t seen a real budge on the scale in several weeks, so it would be nice to see that number go down a bit.  In order for me to be in the 220’s before we leave for vacation I would need to lose three pounds a week between now and then.  However, I’m already three pounds behind.  I would need to weigh in at 254 tomorrow morning in order to be back on schedule.  I highly doubt that’s going to happen.  I would be happy to just be down to 257.  I don’t think my fat percentage will be down because I haven’t worked out since Saturday.  For this week, I’m 100% ok with that.

I have to stop and pick up a black compression shirt for the race this weekend.  I think while I’m out I’m also going to pick up a new pair of shoes.  My toe has been poking out of the mesh on my everyday shoes for a couple of months now.  I think it’s time to finally get a new pair.  That can be my little gift to myself for the race.  J

Just one more week of class and then I get a little break.  I can’t wait to be finished with this degree.  A Bachelor’s in Business is going to be a cake walk compared to IT.  Just three more classes.  Just three…

Now, I’m going to spend the rest of my evening vegging out to Once Upon a Time and then to bed.  I’m definitely going to be catching up on some ZZZ’s this weekend.
