Last year was a disaster with my weight lose. I actually gained back a lot of what I had lost. Most of the weight gain occurred during the time that I was sick last year. Seems like each time I was out for a whole month at a time. And because of the pain I had, I spent more time doing nothing then doing what I should to stay healthy. I fell short of all my goals because of this. The year ended with me having an operation which made the whole month of December a negative month because the doctor told me I could not exercise.
Well! Starting on January 2 the doctor told me I could start back up with my cardio exercises. I worked with the therapist to find out what I could do and still stay in my doctors guide lines and he came up with exercises I can do. So my goal is for an hour of cardio a day. Either at the gym or walking. I still have a several months before I can start back on the strength training which has been essential at helping to reduce my pain. But until then I am committing to an hour a day, six days a week, of exercises.
I am hoping that this year well be great and I will be able to stick with my goals.
