Need a Boost


Friday, March 22, 2013

Just a quick one this morning -

My week hasn't been good, as far as motivation goes. Because of my shoulder injury I have been missing out on my pool time. No exercise for me. Then we have had blizzardy conditions, tons of snow...although my shoulder seemed to feel a bit better, I wasn't willing to drive if I didn't absolutely have to, and that set me back.

I found myself eating fast food a couple times this week and I'm not proud of it. I opted for the healthier choice of grilled chicken and no fries/pop, but I realize that those chicken burgers they serve are full of grossness too.

I'm proud that I didn't get on the scale this morning because I knew it would do nothing for me. It would just upset me. I am really hoping I can make my goal of losing 10lbs in March. 1 more week to go, and I'm so close to being there.

I'm re-starting today. No more gross food, only nutritious goodness. On Monday I will start swimming again and it will be a better week.

It's too bad that something stupid like a little shoulder injury can derail me so quickly. I just have to remember that this is going to be worth the effort. Today is a new day.

    Hi there! I just wanted to add some encouragement for you. The very fact that you are HERE and blogging means you are being proactive in reaching your goals That is a huge WIN emoticon You have a great mindset and you are not in denial of the changes you need to make. (chicken sandwiches, hehe) you can and will do this! As for working out with an injury, by all means, be very careful. Focus on things that won't involve your shoulder such as squats, leg lifts, calf raises etc. By all means, keep moving! I am glad you are here and on the road to wellness! emoticon

    You got this! Don't get too discouraged by your shoulder. You can definitely find ways around it to exercise! Some floor exercises would be good as long as you don't put pressure on your shoulder. Even getting back in the pool and working on your legs would help. I have plantar fasciitis in my feet (worse in my right), so I completely understand your frustration! If you need anything, let me know! I will help any way I can!

    Thank guy guys! I'm picking my chin(s) up and letting this week rest in peace.

Great idea on the SP exercises Minea999. For some reason I just never even thought of that. There's so many features on this site that I need to learn how to use, or even just realize they are available.

Thanks for your support girls.

    Keep going! I've been easily derailed by injuries in the past too... it's like I didn't know how to keep some of my healthy choices going without making all of them all the time. But you're doing exactly the right things! Know that a bad day or even a bad week doesn't change things that much in the scheme of things, and beating yourself up over something you can't change will just make it worse! Instead focus on what you do have control over, which is what comes next! You got this!

    I had a week like this two weeks ago. The minute I decided to drive to an area where I can walk (our neighborhood is WAY to hilly for me now) my car broke down completely and there were financial issues to go along with it. So many things went wrong, it was like the universe was against my plans to get healthy. I got through it! Yes, don't give up! Go for your March goal!

    Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again! Every time we eat something it's a new chance to make a good choice. Don't 'hope' that you will lose 10lbs by the end of March. Decide that you will and then make it happen! There are lots of exercises that you can do at home without going to the pool - maybe look for some articles on SP for them. Keep your chin up!
