today is day three of a fresh start. fall down seven times, get back up. so i'm getting up again. working my way back to where i was. i wish i didn't have to, but i would rather work hard to get there than stay where i am.
i was diagnosed with a bone spur under my achilles tendon, so the doc said no more running. that was a huge blow, and i've spent most of time since that diagnosis throwing my form of a tantrum. it's time to get over it, put my big girl panties on, and work on figuring out what i CAN do.
the good: i've been drinking my water, eating my fruits and veggies, and avoiding sugar. the bad, i've been eating too much, and mostly not exercising.
i've learned a lot in the past 2 years and 3 months. i'm trusting that all that will help me in moving forward. i know tracking doesn't work for me, because i get insane. i know what a healthy day should look like, so i will work hard to eat that way.
the exercise thing will be more challenging...dancing, jumping jacks, walking, running, all put a lot of stress on my feet, so i'm not sure how all that will work. perhaps as i move closer to my goal weight, i can pick some of those things up. at this point, i need to be careful so i don't injure myself more. bike riding, gentle dancing...we'll see what else i can find.
hope you're all making progress.
