Day 272: Can You See It?

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Yesterday as part of my rejuvenation plan I put Saturday's goal up everywhere..
On the fridge..

On the computer..

And on the full length mirror in the bathroom..

This way I will see it, picture it, and determine to BE it.
I am determined not to get down or depressed about being up but to take action and go down!! It is not my fault (totally) that my knee and leg is giving me a hard time, but I have to deal with it. And it is not an excuse to slack on the eating right part of my new(ish) lifestyle. I still need to eat healthy and mindfully. I CAN DO THIS. I WILL DO THIS. My one year anniversary of TOTAL commitment to a lifestyle change is coming up on December 12th and I want to make sure I am still living it when it gets here. NO EXCUSES!! I'm still not doing Zumba. I MAY try and go on Saturday. We'll see. I really want my leg feeling better before I chance going back to square one. I still have not done the treadmill either. I think I am ready for slow walking. I guess I am just scared a bit at this point too. I'll get there. No stress. It will happen when it happens. I'm not going to push too hard on it until I know I'm ready to be pushed. :) Until then I will continue to eat right and get things done around here to get ready for the holidays. :)

    Do see a doctor about your leg. I had pain in my knee and my groin and was quite surprised to find I had osteoarthritis of the right hip. Not that you have this but the point is sometimes the pain is referred and the problem can be something else. Smart idea to put your goals up especially on the fridge. Can't miss that one! The doctor may recommend some physical therapy which can help too or maybe a support bandage of some sort. I see people at the gym with them and they seem to do some exercise. Get better soon. emoticon

    First of all, I love the idea of posting your weekly goal every where. That's a great way to remained focused!

    Secondly, have you seen a doctor about your leg? If not, it might be something you might want to do. Also, I think it's a great idea to start slow. Maybe light walking and stretching? Also, SP has a few videos for seated exercise - cardio and ST, so you might want to look into those. You might even want to do a Google search for seated exercises. Hope it heals soon! emoticon
