No excuses

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I weighed myself a couple days ago. Yup. Exactly what I expected, I've gained weight. I've been unable to work out or even walk on most days for the past couple months. I was on the treadmill about to achieve my best 5K time yet and felt something snap in the bottom of my foot. It didn't feel to bad at first and progressively got worse because I decided I would just slow down instead of stop. Now I have a walking air boot on my right foot and most days it hurts like hell to try to walk much less do anything else. The last two months I've been just trying to figure out how to take care of my kids and the house and pretty much just said to heck with my weight until after the holidays since I was already stressed enough. Well, it's after the holidays and time to get to it. There's only so much I can do for my foot because I don't want to have surgery andrecommended right after rest is lose weight if you're overweight. I'm one of those people who hates tracking my food..just hate it. However, I hate not fitting into my clothes and not being able to do the things with my kids that I want too. We missed Christmas at the zoo this year because I couldn't do all the walking. I hated that more than I hate tracking anything so I've got the app on my phone and I've found some good pilates and yoga videos to start stretching my muscles which will help. No more excuses and hopefully when the snow melts I'll be able to walk the dogs around the duck pond with my kids.

    Welcome back to Sparking. It is something we need to do!
    I didn't like tracking, especially as it didn't recognise so many of the foods I buy. It's ok once they are entered and become "favourites". I eat virtually the same thing every day when I am on the right path. I have been using a food diary since I started Sparking. I just put in what I had, not counting the calories/carbs etc but after a while you just KNOW what is ok and what isn't.
    Good luck, I'm here to cheer you on.
