Coming out of hiatus...a new knee, a new year and new resolutions...

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Man, it has been a long time since I have been here! I have missed it. Missed all of you!

I am still maintaining my 145lb loss. Some parts of maintenance have been super duper easy. I truly hated how unattractive and unsexy I felt when I was fat. It is not hard for me to tap into those feelings again when I feel the urge to over eat and that keeps me on track. I don't want to go back there. However, I felt my best when I was tracking, eating 6 times a day, and eat clean foods which I have gotten away from so here I am, back to get myself feeling my best again.

Some parts of maintenance have been super difficult. Like the fact that almost a year ago, I screwed up my leg at a Roller Derby practice, had surgery to fix it, did it again, and finally, on Dec 6, got a new ACL. The past year has made exercising difficult. I wasn't able to do the stuff I love like running. Aside from walking, I have gotten away from exercising.

I am not mobile yet. Still using crutches and a wheelchair when I have to but here are my goals for 2012.

1. Eat 6 healthy, small meals a day.

2. Go back to the gym!!!

3. Go back to marathon training(won't happen until closer to the end of 2012)!

4. Track ALL my meals.

5. Maintain at 135(maybe even drop a couple more..we'll see)

6. Tighten and tone all over.

Happy New Year everyone!

    I'm so glad that you're here! I always look for you and your blogs and knew that you were going through a difficult time.

Tracking definitely helps.

As for exersising, don't push yourself. You know what happened the last time and I don't wish that upon you again...ever.

Happy New Year. Here's to a better and improved year!

  Jody! I'm so excited to see you in my feed again, and even more excited to hear that you've maintained your loss! Many of us would have gained after being sidelined, but you rock!
