Saturday, June 19, 2010

I am very discouraged today. I have decided to start over..from scratch. I am reseting all of my spark goals and making new ones. emoticon emoticon emoticon

April 2, 2010 when the cardiologist released me to resume cardio and activities, I started walking heavy again, meaning I increased my program for interval training on the treadmill. It is hard work to walk between 9 - 12 miles a week. I look better and feel better; however, I have not LOST anything. I started tracking my food again. I never stopped eating my fruits, veggies, and drinking my water. However, tracking food is the very important key in all of this.

I started work two weeks ago, this was the first week on the floor. I worked 15 hours and IM EXHAUSTED and weak. My ankle, it is not functioning well at all - what does that mean? I am limping when I get home, it turns out, and I get sharp pains shooting throughout. I have been going going going since April. Not much sit down time, not much computer time, but, I have been sleeping alot. Tiredness is something I have to deal with with my kidney disease.

At any rate - I have decided to start my Spark Program from the begining from scratch... I want to get stronger and If I continue on the way that I am - I wont get stronger and I wont be able to move forward!

So there I go...Keeping On keeping On

    emoticon Take it slow, you can do it. I hope your ankle feels better soon. Trying to do too much with no rest, and the stress, no doubt contributes to the lack of weight loss and injuries. Starting over again can be a positive experience, and I wish you the best of luck. I know you can do it, you are one strong, determined lady. emoticon

    emoticon One step at a time my friend! You will find you are back on track in no time, but the main secret is not to rush.

    Make sure you take care of that ankle!

    Let me know if I can help out! I am always here for you!

    You can do it!! Don't give up. Start over and see if that does help. I do hope your ankle gets to feeling better soon. Remember, when you haven't exercised much and then start back, start slowly--don't try to start back tooooo fast. I know from experience on that. (((HUGS)))

    I've been thinking the same way. Now I will start anew. Thanks for the encouragement. Hope your ankle feels better soon. -- Lou
