Shortly after my birthday (the later part of May) I started planting my flower gardens. Although they aren't the biggest on the block there are four of them,
besides the perimeter of our yard (which I am trying to plant perennial so as to cut down on the planting in the future. While working on this I twisted my back in the wrong direction and was pretty much immobile for a week after which I went to see my chiropractor and am in the healing process, back to being mobile again.
My biggest regret was not keeping in touch with SP and all of my encouraging friends. I put on 5 1/2 pounds during this time (not so healthy eating and lack of exercise), but I'm not discouraged by this as some of this was out of my control. DH does not like to cook, but i gave him credit when going for burgers he ordered double tomato waited to put LF cheese on it after he came home. He really felt a little helpless with me not being able to do alot.
What I am having a problem with is re-committing to SP and just getting back to basics. I feel like I lost my "just-do-it-tiveness". I was doing so well for so long and this set back just has my head wrapped around "old" habits and weariness.
I can certainly work on eating healthier, but the exercising has to go back to short, but consistent blocks of time. Right now I've got some stretches from the doc and walking is what I can do (not power walking like I was and certainly not the dancing and marching/jogging in place.....not yet any way.
My body is starting to feel "frumpy" again and I feel stuck i place. I know I should take it just one day at a time, but it is more difficult than I care to admit.
I know there are people out there who have worse problems than mine and I feel "a little silly" for putting this out there, but in order to be accountable for me and my actions I needed to put this in print. If after reading this you have any advice (or even some articles) to push me along I sure would appreciate it.
Hugs go out to all who read this.......have a good day and thank you for being so understanding.
