Keeping on Track


Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I've noticed that sometimes I use my broken arm as an excuse to not keep up with my food and exercise log. I am still eating really healthy and manage to exercise in some form for at least an hour a day but I'm not tracking everything. I really miss my bike rides and tracking my miles. I sometimes feel like a failure for not being able to reach my mileage goals even though I know it isn't my "fault" that I broke my arm. It's only been 3 weeks since the accident but I want to get back to my normal routine.

    emoticon about the arm. I commend you for still trying to control your eating and exercising. Keep up the good work and the arm will heal in no time.

    emoticon but you should not beat yourself up. You are doing really well. You can still get things accomplished even though you have a broken arm. Give it time to heal. I know you miss riding your bike, but before you know it you will be back riding again. Keep your head up.

    I'm actually doing great in the exercise area. My husband bought me a trainer for my bike right after the accident. I've been either going to the gym or riding the bike on the trainer. I've been eating really well and haven't gained back any weight since the accident. I just "feel" like like I'm not doing enough. It's all in my head. My body is doing just great.

    Sweetie, don't you dare to beat yourself up, you are doing the beat that you can and you will be back on track before you know it

    Oh, yes. For years I used knee pain as an excuse not only not to exercise, but to eat anything I wanted, as much as I wanted. And guess what? I gained weight. I know you're still eating healthily and exercising, but tracking really helps.

Do you have a bike trainer? It holds your bike upright so it becomes a stationary bike like the ones in gyms. I use mine in the winter when it's too snowy to bike. I think you could easily use one with a broken arm, as long as a friend helps you with set-up. It's boring as all get-out, but you can pop in a movie or listen to a book on tape while you pedal.
