Okay... New Month, New Week, New Plan...

Monday, February 04, 2013

Hello Everyone, last month was a really bad month for me. I had a lot going on and unfortunately i put myself last. I supposed that's the challenge of weight loss ,to remember to put yourself first. That's hard to do when you have to balance all that life throws at you. I suppose i lost it when i tried to look at the whole picture, i'm never ever doing that again i was so overwhelmed. I couldn't concentrate on any one thing, i was all over the place only making a minimal effort at everything. Not good. I have a stressfull year ahead of me, possible work forloughs, my hubby in going on deployment, taking care of our son and our home on my own. There's stuff i need to do but i've been putting it off. Like i really really need to get back to the doctor to check out my foot. I have plantar fasciitis and i can barely walk in the evenings and in the mornings. I hobbel around like i'm much much older. It's so frustrating. I want to work out more, i want to run or jog but until my foot totaly heals i can only walk, swim, etc.. it's not an excuse i know you can lose wieght that way. I'm just frustrated. One thing leads to another and before i know it, it's a giant snow ball out of control. Okay so last month is behind me, i can't change what happend but i can move forward and try try try again.

this week...

    Ooooh.....I had plantar fasciitis in both feet once. So, I feel your pain! I found some wonderful stretches online and took a week off of my feet and was back to new. Hope you find what works for you!!

    January was a super tough month, wasn't it? I was totally off my game as well but am commited to making February better. It sounds like you have a lot going on so balance will be important. Good luck with the coming months and give me a shout if you need support or need a shoulder through all you've got going on!

    If the faciitis is in your heel then you could try a spin class. You burn 400+ calories in just 45 minutes (I burn 550 or so but I weigh 195). My brother has the same issue - he's a heavy guy with a heavy walk and he wanted to get into shape with running but he kept getting plantar faciitis. He started running toe-to-heel (like the way you would run in bare feet) and the problem relaxed. No, it didn't go away, but he no longer suffers as often. Who knows, maybe it would help you, too. Best of luck on your journey! Stay active and keep yourself strong. :D

    You're so very right. That's how I got to this place, not putting myself first. So often I think we're led to believe as moms and wives, friends, etc. that it's selfish to put yourself first. Once we get over that, that it's not selfish and by getting healthier we are a better person for all those who depend on us, we can truly dedicate ourselves to getting healthy and fit. Acknowledging that is half the battle--congrats! Good luck to you; it sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now, so to speak :) Take small steps and the changes you make will soon add up! You can do it emoticon
