Didn't meet my goals

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

This weekend is the half marathon and I didn't meet my goals thanks to over eating and my back injury. It is too much to walk for long distances. I am going to start the race but only go as far as I can. Hoping for 6-7 miles but if I only get to mile one, then I only get to mile one. And if we are in the parks at Disney and I can't take anymore, then I will just go back to the hotel. I don't want to, but I have to do what I can to make sure I don't do more damage. I also won't be able to go on many of the ride because of my back. I don't want to make it worse. But the kids and Todd and the in-laws can all go on them. I will just take photos. It will be ok. I am waiting on a call from the doctor but nothing yet. I really need something. Medication or an injection or something. It is hurting and making me nauseous.

As for my eating. I have eaten more this past week. I gained 5 pounds. So I am planning out my meals. That is it! I need to plan. I am also going to look at menus at Disney at the places we are eating at to eat healthier choices. I don't snack when out of the house, just chew gum, so that is good. And I won't eat ice cream or anything if the kids get it. I need to get in the right state of mind! None of my clothes fit me either. I am worried about the heat in Florida since I have been so used to the cold of Michigan. But that will just make me lost more, right?? lol

Oh, and I only drink water, and coffee. I just drink one cup of coffee a day. But I get in my 8 glasses or more of water a day :) I don't drink other beverages.

Thanks for reading!

    You just changed your goal to "walk as far as my back will allow." You have to allow for changes when unexpected things come up, like a back injury.
