Today I started my adventures with the free weights, so my body hurts in new and exciting places that never hurt before. My trainer has cheerfully informed me that "whenever I'm working out I'm just sitting there thinking of crazy shit I'm gonna make you do"—I haven't seen the worst of that, but I did some moderately crazy hamstring curls today that certainly qualified as weird. The diet portion of things isn't too exciting yet—last week I should have gotten yogurt, and this week I was planned to have gotten yogurt added to my meal plan, but since my dietitian missed last week and I'm allergic to milk, this week I "get" both, so I won't fall behind the diet plan after all. She feels pity on how very, very much I miss eating bread, so she's going to move things around a bit and if this week goes well, bread will be reintroduced next week (in a very limited form, of course). My weight loss has been on the low end for the past couple of weeks, but I've been working out very hard and sticking to the diet plan, so there's not much more for me to do about it right now. It's possible that part of the reason my weight loss has slowed a bit is that I'm starting to build more muscle. The optimistic part of me wants to believe that, at least.
