Weekly Weigh In: See Jane Face Limitations

I’ve been moving along feeling fairly great since the spring. It’s what got me running (and believing I could run) in the first place. Now, it seems I’ve hit a wall. It is not the laziness wall I was trying to hurdle last week. Honestly, in retrospect, the wall could be why I couldn’t muster the energy to work out last week. First, I thought I had too much going on but now that I am starting to see other symptoms (pain, fatigue, night sweats) I realize I am on the tail end of an infusion cycle (more about that here).  Why am I telling you all of this? Well, because it has lead to another week of laying in bed after work rather than exercising. And the eating? Well, it hasn’t been low cal enough to lose weight without exercise. So, this week’s weigh in is about dealing with limitations. I have to acknowledge I have them and not beat myself down mentally for listening to my pain and taking a break. Sure does suck to see the scale climb though (up 2.3 this week).

Meanwhile, Ash is turning into some fitness super human right before my eyes. Basketball at least twice a week, gym every day (including weekends), boxing three times a week. He hit his goal weight and is on another mission now. He’s even talking about crossfit. I don’t feel like I have to compete with him but sheesh! It’s hard to lay in bed until noon on a Saturday when your husband is up at 8 heading to the gym. Calling my doctor tomorrow. Fingers crossed that she will prescribe something to ease my symptoms until my infusion in three weeks.

This week’s recipe is one of my favorites from the last week. It’s not exactly low fat but it’s a good dose of protein, good fat and it’s filling. Total calories per serving (there are 2) is about 420. Check it out here.

Robyn is still on vacation and having a BLAST!! I'm sure she'll tell you all about it when she's back stateside.
