An injury test

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

It seems that I fall away from healthy habits when I am upset or recovering from surgery or injury. There are many articles I have read about avoiding poor eating habits during these periods and I am trying to follow them. The great news is that I didn't damage the replacement knees or break my back/neck. The aggravation is the discomfort of the sprained knee. Wife left for a wedding so I will not be eating out as much as we do when she is here, last night at Outback I ate my daily limits for dinner. The 5% Challenge team will keep me motivated and I will just have to build my walking and hiking and use other exercises during rehab. The pool is open!

    Hi Rusty!

Consider using Trekking poles when you walk or hike. I just started using them for hiking and they are great. I got mine at Walmart for about $10-$15. They adjust to you. Mine came with tips for hiking, walking on pavement, or cups for walking on snow or snowshoeing.

    Good that you did not do damage to replacement parts. Get well soon and get to the pool.
Fun about not eating out much when DW is away, my DH is the one who always wants to go out so I keep a check on outside dinning.

    Rusty, so sorry to hear that you have a sprained knee. I know how you feel about falling away from healthy habits during this time. When I'm sick and need to eat healthy, is when I eat sugar! Go figure!

Just remember you are in this for the long haul, you have come so far, I know you can stay motivated! Love the idea about the pool! Just keep doing what you know is right and everything will fall into place!

Thanks for keeping the NE Arkansas Team going!
