Oh how true this is!! The more physical pain I'm in, the more I gain (in weight because I eat). I am trying to watch what I do, just doesn't always work. I know how to do all this, but am still lacking basic motivation to put everything into daily practice. Why do I fight this all so hard?

Back in August, I had a freak accident at work. Pivoting out of a truck, I lost my footing and fell. The result was a broke bone (my first), couple of very large bone contusions, tendonitis through the bottom of my foot, and a lot of torn ligaments. Needless to say, my foot is a mess. Crutches, moon boot, PT, and a lot of ice its still nowhere near healed. I got more depressed than I normally am, mostly because exercise has always been a form of medication for me. And I quit caring about what I ate. I have put on almost 17# in 9 weeks!!!!!! I can only do recumbent bike at the gym, I can't hike, not allowed to do weights, and still not eating right. I am working on getting my eating under control, but it is so hard when I'm not happy and have no motivation. Times like this is when I wish I wasn't always alone. What I did after the fall is making this whole thing harder than it ever should have been...

I didn't get to the gym today.
I worked (and up a sweat at work).
I went to dinner and had hot wings and a deep fried burger.
I decided that it was perfect weather for a run/walk.
So I set out for my walk. Decided to give it a little lite jog since I haven't done really any running training since injury last summer.
Lite jog turned into a slow run. And I went....and went...and went. Now normally I get quarter mile or so in and walk a hair or two, then start back up. NOT TONIGHT!!! Went and went and went....
I ran my FIRST ever full mile....not only can I mark that off my goal board, but I can mark times off too!!! I did it in under 13!!! 12:59 to be exact.
I thought I was gonna die...heavy food right before going out sucked, but the fact that without overly trying I accomplished so much too!!!
Wonder what happens if I was better prepared to do it.
Guess we'll find out at my next run!!!

So much has happened since my last blog!!! Like my entire life is upside down, backwards, crazy, and I couldn't be any happier!!!!
I will start with 2/21....I got fired from my job of almost 13 years. I loved my job, but I worked sometimes up to 85 hrs a week. I have always thought of myself as a happy person, til my friends kept saying that I am so much happier now. I am also realizing how much of LIFE I have missed out on in the last decade and a half.
So, on to what I have done.
I have had one bad habit for the last 23 years. I smoked. I tried pills, patches, gum, cold turkey, everything short of laser to quit. because everyone else wanted me to.....but it never worked. I finally decided to try a different way. and on 3/18......I QUIT SMOKING!!!!!!!! I am beyond proud!!!
Then, 3/29, I finally did my first official 5K. I didn't run all of it, had a bunch of friends that joined me. And it was a fun run....and fun it was. I can't wait to do more and actually start racing in them!!!
I haven't been super trying to meet my weight goals. Doing more what feels good rather than a set program. I know I could be doing better, but heart not been super in it. But, this morning, I stepped on the scale like most mornings. And after 2 months...she loves me!! I met another one of my mini weight goals!!!
Other things are slowly falling into place, only thing I am missing now is a full time job/career. But I am working on that, and for the first time in almost 5 years, my mood is a 10+ when I wake up, and I am truly happier than ever!! I love waking and seeing what each day holds now!!!!

My goal board caused me to divide up my goals into baby steps. My weight was divided 12 ways.
I met first one yesterday morning!!!! Kinda awesome when I can start checking things off!!! And today I will go for my reward. :)
And I did sign up for the Cosmic Run March 29, so that will be my first official 5K and another check off my board!!!!
So far this year I am down 13.4#. I know its coming off fast right now, but it went on fast too. I know its gonna start getting harder when I reach my trouble zone lol.
Hope y'all have a great weekend!!!!
