Sore Stairs

I recruited a couple more people to do the stairs with me and tonight after work we did my standard 2 1/2 mile look and incorporated six sets of the stairs. I was hoping to get in more, but I had to listen to my body and call it quits with six.

After Saturday's insane nine set workout on the stairs, I woke up this morning and felt every single step really define and point out every muscle fiber in my calves. It's been a while since I've felt sore like this. And while it always feels great, I'd like a little more ease when I walk! It made the stairs a little challenging, but of course, it was a great workout. All told, I burned 600 calories, which I'll take thankyouverymuch.

The final weigh-in of this round of the game is on Wednesday and when I stepped on the scale this morning, I was 2lbs UP from where I finished last week. Good lord. I really hate when the scale doesn't play nice. But, I'm still following the game, still taking good care of myself and I'll work really hard tomorrow to see just how much I can move that scale in the direction I need it to be come Wednesday morning.

Regardless of what the scale says, I'm happy that I'm playing and that it's easier for me to make healthy nutritious choices. Because I recognize that on this very long road to losing all this weight, a few weeks here are there where I plateau or gain are what this journey is all about. I just need to push on through.
