Time to Re-assess

Saturday, January 26, 2013

While I AM eating more of the good stuff, I'm not eating or drinking any less of the crappy stuff. And every Monday, I start strong with the exercise, only to succumb to my bad knees until Monday rolls around again. My eating seems to be centered around getting rid of the bad stuff so we can start clean. Yada, Yada, Yada.

In two weeks, I'll make the trip to Houston so that Dr. Joseph can inject this Synvisc into my knees. I had it done June 2011, so I know what to expect - my poor DH having to wait on me hand & foot for at least a week. I know it gets a lot worse before it starts getting better. I will use the elliptical for a month at a nearby gym to return to the land of the moving.

I've been watching my FitBit and I know how inactive I am. Busy, yes - active, no. The few days I've deliberately walked 10,000 steps, I could not sleep that night. I've not yet made it to two consecutive days of 10K steps. I like to get my steps in all at once, so that I can log that activity early in the day. I can either sit on my butt, or break my steps up throughout the day. For this week, I will see how that works for me.

Eating. The bane of my existence. I am starting cycle 1 of the 17-Day Diet tomorrow. I have almost completed my menu plans for the next month, which includes what I want DH to feed me when I can't prepare for us. I married a sweet and capable man. (A man who raises a son on his own before meeting me is GOLD.)

I know that I cannot exercise away bad food choices. Nutrition is 80% of my success - why do I fight it so?

Well, time for another short walk around my complex.

I will be strong and diligent.

    Good luck! A little is better than nothing at all. Some people are cold turkey, but others are not. Change some easy things like switching to something lower fat or a copy cat recipe. You can do it ! emoticon
