I'm back in the 230's, again, but this time there will be no returning to the 240s.
Yesterday I worked all day at the Arena as local crew for a touring rock show - load-in was 7AM to 4PM, I must have walked 10 miles over mostly cement floors; then I ran spot for the show (standing, but bending over, physically uncomfortable for 2 1/2 hours.) Then load out until 2AM - another several miles of walking on that cement floor, and my hip flexors started to give out on me.
Today I have pain in my hip flexors and back (if I'm standing) but my ankles seem to be getting better. I also have menstrual onset pain. These are also plenty good reasons to see a reduction in the scale.
I feel a need to psychically rededicate myself while I feel myself get back in the diet rhythm. I am SO looking forward to hitting 235 and below, now!
