I'm Still Here!

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

I know I have gone pretty quiet over the last couple of weeks.

I've been incredibly busy with my two jobs, and Thanksgiving, and getting ready to move next month, and coping with the loss of my dog, Lucy.

Not running and not CrossFitting is killing me. Especially the first week when I was coming down off of all those endorphins--I was a big weepy mess.

My weight has been kind of stuck and I've been lazy about tracking my food. I'm traveling on business this week but I've really been doing a good job of staying away from the carbs. I'm also getting tons of steps, which I haven't done in a few weeks because of the hip injury.

The next 4 to 6 weeks are going to continue to be quite stressful, but I'm going to do my best to continue to do whatever exercise I can and to be better about my tracking.

Also, I've started a Facebook page about my weight loss journey called "Christina Can Change." I'd love you to come "like" my page if you are interested!

    I found you and liked you on FB. Keep on doing it! It's a marathon not a sprint.

    Always good to see you! I just liked your facebook page! Thanks for sharing that.

Even with everything going on, you still have your head on straight! You'll make it through the next few weeks!

    I will definitely head to your facebook page. I am sorry life is throwing so much at you right now but good job holding steady and not going back to old habits, that is a great accomplishment!

    Being stuck for a little while is OK, especially when you need some time to heal. I'm stressed to the max as well, and it bugs me that I can't find much time during the work day to walk and do my itty bitty little exercise things. I actually had to make my challenge goal this month to do some of my usual workday workouts at home if I missed them. It's still a little hit or miss, but I'm getting there. Which reminds me, better go pick up my weights for a minute or two.

    You are doing all the right things. What a balancing act: two jobs, travel, and a hip injury. I think it's amazing that you're keeping on top of all of this and managing to get your steps in. emoticon
