I think I finally kicked this thing I have had. My throat is still a little sore and so is my foot, but I feel a lot better today and almost to 100%. I am still missing the gym today to try and fully recover, but I am confident that I will be back at it on Monday. I have been away from the gym for two weeks now and I am starting to really miss it. I was getting very frustrated this week because I really want to stay on track with the fitness. I did loose some weight (down to 256.5 today) but my plans here are about more than weight loss, it is about getting in good shape. The gym and the meals are vital to that and, while the meals are back to normal, the gym has not been. I wasn't until today that I truly felt I would be ready to return to the gym soon.
This weekend will be another one full of yard work, but it will be done very early. It is supposed to get close to, if not actually reach, 100 degrees this weekend. The blistering heat of the central valley summers are here and there is going to be 3 months of this, so I better start getting used to a schedule that has the bulk of the outside work done before the heat.
Right now, I am feeling pretty good about things though.
