ScaleSo I haven’t weighed myself in about… a long time.  Mainly because I don’t feel like being disappointed in what has happened.  Maybe I gained weight, maybe I lost weight, maybe it stayed exactly the same, but who knows.  Point is, I don’t feel like weighing right now and I’m not going to.  I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing.  We’ll find out another time if it is working or not.

I am somewhat concerned with the accuracy of my Bodymedia device.  I know that they are supposedly accurate within 90% of the “gold standard” of calories burned, but sometimes I feel like it is telling me I am burning way too much.  Don’t get me wrong, I am on my feet all the time, moving as much as I can, walking around all the time at work, hitting up the gym or another workout at least 5-6 days per week and keeping track of everything I eat.  But sometimes I just don’t trust it.Bodymedia

Like everything else… I guess we’ll soon find out.

Today consisted of a crappy, busy day at work, lots of walking around and a nice run at the gym.  Unfortunately, my knee decided to start hurting about a mile into my run.  Fortunately (for me, not my knee), I decided recently that I am not going to give up because of small pains.  As they say, there is a difference between being hurt and being injured.  I’ll play through the hurt.

One good note is that my toe seems to be getting better.  The toe I talked about a few days ago being injured at a waterpark.  I noticed yesterday that it didn’t hurt too much at karate and today it hurt even less.  Maybe I did something just right that is making it get better.  Maybe it just doesn’t want to hurt too much right now.  But I am happy right now with the lack of pain either way.

It’s amazing how pain from something so small can cause so many issues.  I have quite a few of those pains lately.  My elbow from chopping wood developed tennis elbow (though it is mostly gone), my toe from the slide and my wrist/thumb from who-knows-where.  But I keep truckin’ through it all, playing through the pain, playing through the hurt.

Not gonna let my body tell me who’s boss.
