I am so sick of chin-ups. So so so sick of them. Something about them make my right elbow ache (like it has a headache) and my lower back snap. Not my best look.
I know that I am biased towards letting myself off the hook. Because, dude, I'm lazy! So, I'm offering a compromise. I am still running and Jillianing and exercising almost every day. I plan on completing my chin-up goal. I am just going to do fewer days in a week of chin-ups. I will chin-up on the days that I run. Give myself a break when I am already working similar muscles with Jillian.
I'm also hoping that cutting back will help my lower back heal a bit. It's sore enough that I yelped while fetching a pan from the drawer under my stove. Dude. I am SO old!
In more interesting news, I am enjoying maintenance. It agrees with me. I absolutely find it stressful that I don't know what I should be eating...... or how much cheating is too much. But I am reveling in the combination of exercise and eating good food. Yes, I would like the left over meatloaf for a sandwich for lunch! And yes, I would like a very tiny cookie with my coffee in the afternoon. And yes, I would like eggnog in my latte!!!! Dude!!
The challenge of maintenance remains a rather large learning curve. With Christmas around the corner, an even bigger challenge. Not to worry, if I fail at maintenance I can get right back to dieting. And THAT I understand!
