My total PAWs weight loss for the month of August is 1.5. 218.5 this morning. I will take it.

I only had a couple of days where I did not eat as planned, I just allowed myself to eat what I wanted. Overall I am very happy with what I accomplished phyically and mentally.

Ran 4 miles this morning and absolutly no knee pain....YEAH. It is only a little uncomfortable on the outside of my leg below the knee. but not the entire run. Whew. Hopefully tomorrows run will be good as well.

Busy day at wor...

I am just in a blah space right now. I think it is almost the TOM......

I could not do speedwork yesterday morning because my knee was driving me crazy so I just walked. Luckily I had an appointment with the Chiro yesterday. He thinks it is totally fixable. He thinks it is my meniscus. He worked on it like crazy yesterday and I am going to test it out tomorrow morning.

My IT band is not long tight like it was so hopefully this will pass soon.

It seems to be better this m...
