I haven't been as on top of things as I wish. I've over indulged and have not exercised much lately. Once again, no good reasons, I just haven't done what I know I need to do.
I'm struggling a LOT with sugar right now. It's not the holidays, though it doesn't help that exposure to sugary treats is magnified this time of year. It's just me.
I feel stuck. I feel frustrated. I feel embarrassed.
I want to do the right things for my health, but I haven't been. And I'm paying for it. My right leg is getting more numb (I have several bulging discs in my back and they are pinching some nerves). But what is really scaring me is that my right foot and ankle are now also getting numb. And, I'm having pain in my upper back and shoulders as well.
Will losing weight magically fix these issues? Probably not. But it would certainly take some of the pressure off my back and limbs if I would lose the weight and start exercising more.
I'm still determined that I'm going to do the 10K walk/run on Memorial Day, so I'd better get started back up on this fitness quest of mine! I know I can do this. I know it in my head, I just have to convince my heart.
