I woke up at 5:15 this morning, not because I set the alarm but because my right knee was hurting so bad. I don't know why I didn't follow my husband's advice & take some ibuprofin before bed, but I didn't. I got up & took the ibuprofin & iced my knee for a while & thought about whether or not I would hit the road this morning or not. At first, I thought I'd wait & walk this evening, but that's really a crap shoot because until the middle school football season is over, I'm never sure when Brock will be home (did I mention he was head coach). So I decided I better suck it up & get out there this morning - so I did it. I had to cut off the last 0.2 mile because I dropped my cell phone & had to back track for it, but I will try to get out there this evening & make that up. I'm really proud of myself for pushing to go on - I'm usually such a quitter when anything gets too tough. I didn't eat as clean today because my MIL, SIL & I went to the next town shopping & we ate lunch at TGI Friday's (my favorite), but I didn't overeat like I normally would, so I would still consider today successful. Like I said before, I'm not following any "diet" because they just don't work for me. I will try to make better choices, but if I really want something, I'm gonna have it. When I deny myself completely it just seems that I obsess until I give in anyway. This way I don't seem to do quite as bad. Hope everyone has a great rest of the day!!
