The end of the 2012 .. streak , numbers and thoughts ...
Sunday, December 30, 2012
So here we are at the end of 2012, where are we ? Well for me i think I am on a good track if the numbers say anything . Today when i put in my ipod info into Nike.com I realized that since June I have walked 195 miles . Not shabby considering every step I make is in pain. I do it for the belief that maybe one day my feet wont hurt all the time. Even though they hurt I make myself get up and do it all over again tomorrow. Why because if I dont one day I will not be able to walk on them at all.
I set out before surgery to make it to 100 pounds gone by 1/1/13 well I blew that one with a few weeks of emotions . But on the upside ... 12 weeks on the couch and I didnt gain because of the surgery . I battled through that time and didnt gain 35 pounds like last year . I have learned that if you want to then you will and i am very proud of myself for coming through all of that with no noticeable weight gain. When i hit emotional bottom three weeks ago yes fell back to the food . It didnt make me feel better at all but it couldnt make me feel worst either. On Dec. 26th I got up and said you know what stop think walk ... and that seems to be helping .
So with the sparklers we have to measurements an over all number that is composed by taking an adding up the chest, waist, thigh, bicep , hips and calves .. Now remember through October and November I was on the couch ... but I have managed to loose 32 over all inches since Oct. proving yet again if you want it you will get it.
Back a few weeks ago I set a streak to do 60 minutes of fitness a day .. that was the week before I hit rock bottom emotionally so I havent kept that streak going .. I have now set a fitness streak of 15 miles a week ... that is more doable to me I believe ... It will help me physically and mentally and emotionally. Walking is my salvation where my emotions are concerned that is what i replaced emotional eating with and it is what i will go back to now to help me get back where I need to be.
