Yesterday was my first day of strength training. Notice the close proximity of firsts. Firsts should not be that close together, I found out.
I woke up so sore that I had to roll out of bed to stand up. My ribs are sore. My ribs! I was not aware that ribs could even get sore. Maybe I was run over by a truck in my sleep?
All things are difficult today: standing, sitting, walking, lifting my arms.....breathing. The standing/sitting issues are especially problematic as I have been drinking a lot of water.

- the way I shuffled and groaned the entire time
- I am pretty sure that the new pants I got on clearance are youth XL and not adult XL. My belly kept wanting to peek out to see what was going on. Or to escape. Not sure which.
- I had to run past some crews working on houses so I'd pull my shirt down and hold it there which only made my cleavage hang out the top of my shirt. I had to decide each time whether I wanted to cover my big belly or big cleavage. *note to self: no V-neck shirts while running just yet*
Today's lunch will include ibuprofen followed by Epsom salts bath.
Interesting factoid: sore muscles make the scale say terrible things. Just so you know. :(
In food news: I am totally kicking dieting butt. I'm staying right where I need to be with my calories and drinking all of my water plus more. I am so going to give myself a gold star.
Best news of all: it is predicted, if I stay on schedule, that I'll reach my goal weight on April 20th. How's that for precise?!
I do have to confess something: all of the cool moms are making holiday cookies and I haven't made any of my special treats. I just don't want to bring that stuff in the house. I sure hope my kids don't end up in therapy because of this. I really felt guilt when Charlie came home from a friend's house and told me about all the cookies that friend's mom was making. :( Poor deprived kid. Maybe I'll get some slice-n-bake cookies for my underprivileged children.
Have yourself a great day. So happy that it's already Tuesday. :D
