I have never in my entire life seen my collarbone. Now, mind you I am flexing my shoulder, but still.
I can see and feel my collarbone. I can feel my sternum and ribs, and when I lay down, I can feel the iliac crest of my pelvis. Such bizarre feelings to feel my bones emerging from under my flesh!
I decided today to revise my fitness goals and to set a new one.
I decided to revise my running goal. I really want to get a little more weight off before I stress my knees any more than they have already been. I’m going to start Couch to 5K when I get down to 270 pounds. This is 25 pounds away for me. Since it will likely be cold when this happens, I will do any running I have to do at the indoor track at our local rec center. I get hives when I get overly cold and don’t want that to take away from the fact that I’m trying to run, even if it is a slow trot.
I’m going to sign up for a fitness boot camp when I get to my surgeon’s goal, which is 220 pounds. I see them all the time in my school’s parking lot and wish I could participate. One afternoon I saw them out there, and I told myself someday that will be me. And it will be. Hopefully by my birthday in March. So the two gifts I will give myself for my birthday will be a Bleecker tote from Coach and a boot camp class. Now I need to find one locally that is good. I have a couple of ideas about ones I’ve heard that were good, but I need to do a little more research.
Much better protein and fat day today: 90 grams of protein and only 23 grams of fat. I felt much, much better about my eating today even though physically I felt like crap due to this bug I seem to have picked up. The superdoses of vites are not helping so I may just have to let this thing run its course. 😦
