For the last month and a half, I've been sick/injured to where I couldn't work out. Well, I went to the doctor last Thursday and I had gained 12 lbs. As soon as I felt well enough this week to work out, I got back on the treadmill. Well the first day of working out was very slow. I mean, I walked on the treadmill VERY SLOW and did 100 crunches on my exercise ball. Got up the next morning and bam! 5 lbs gone. Now, that tells me that I have been holding on to water weight. Next day I walk on the treadmill again about .2 mph faster, 1 minute longer than the day before and this morning I wake up and I am down another pound. I think I am retaining water, no way my workout was the contributing factor in this weight loss b/c it was so minute (my-noot people!)and so slow that there is no way that I even burned more than 350 calories in those two days.
So what I am getting at is that, I am back to working out. I am not pushing it to the extreme, I am just going with what my body says and hopefully push a little more each day to build up endurance again.
That is all for today as my abs are hurting from the crunches I did yesterday. I have never felt soreness from an ab workout before. I must be getting old. Take care!
