Grapes make me poop.

I am still using the Sensa, I haven't yet felt or seen any effects from it. But, I'll keep it going for awhile. I do think its a placebo drug, so I just need to focus my energies on thinking that it works... and then it will work!

I just don't have the "eat when hungry" "stop when full" mode.
I am more of a "eat when there is food present, stop when its gone" kind of girl.

My training was OK last night. It was the first one where I looked at the clock several times. My knee was really hurting me, so most of the exercises she had planned I couldn't do. This is why its so great to have a trainer though. If I were at home, and my knee hurt like it did, I would have just declared it a relax day and sit on the couch. But here, she's got enough knowledge to fill an hour with non-knee exercises.
And maaaan, are my abs sore!

I really do hope that once I can (if I ever can, sheeeesh!) get most of this weight off me, and strengthen my leg muscles, that my knees will be remarkably better.
I am, in general, opposed to excessive whining :-) So I will just say it once... when my knees hurt, they REALLY freakin' hurt. It's not like a little ache in the joint, it's like a knife stabbing underneath my kneecap.
But you know what? It doesn't stop me from burning 900 calories a workout. It is absolutely possible to get in a worthwhile workout even with an injury. And it especially helps if you have someone to show you how!

I am sleepy today. Fatty is too, he says.

Ah well, back to munching on my grapes.

I want to be like you (but not the grape pooping, lol). You are just so amazing with the exercise!

c'mon... grape pooping is all the rage!! :-)

You're too kind though, thank you!

It would be a lot easier if I could just enjoy exercise.. I don't know how something so good for you has to be so miserable! :)

I hate exercise too, but I love how I feel when it's over and I just have to force myself to do it everday. Keep it up chai!
