Too small to keep but still fun to catch!
So, getting to the real point of this post "A Different Perspective", On Fridays we do our weekly trip to the grocery store and as we were getting home with our goods, I found myself thinking a familiar thought, and wanted to share it. We live up a pretty decent flight of stairs which always makes bringing anything home a lot of fun. (sarcasm noted). Knowing this and what a pain it is we carry up as much as we can handle to avoid making too many trips. As I was carryng up my first load I was really feeling it. Now, normally people don't think of 20-25 pounds as a whole lot, but I must say, it was really difficult to carry up those stairs. My back hurt, my knees, my calves were burning, you get the picture. Then I got to thinking, I used to carry around 8 times that ALL THE TIME. I honestly don't know how I did it! For anyone who has never been extremely over weight, or anyone who wonders what it would feel like, or needs to remember, pick up a 20 pound bag of flour and carry it around for a little while. That should give you a good idea or a good reminder of where you don't want to be or be again.
I am going to participate again this week in the 5 day work out challenge, though I am getting a late start because I over did it this weekend and my ankle is again protesting. I am going to try tonight and hope I don't fall over LOL. Of course, that may be good entertainment! I am also going to continue with the same goals as last week. On a side note, I have been hearing a lot about fluctuaing your calorie intake. It is supposed to help when you are heading towards a plateu, by shaking things up with the metabolism. I have been giving this some thought and may try 2 weeks 1400 and then 1 1500 (repeating process), just to see what happens. This means that I have last week and this week at 1400 and next week I will try 1500. If I decide to do it (trying to gather courage for experiment) :)
I hope you all are having a great week so far, I will check back in soon!
