Cautiously optimistic

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

After all my struggle with the injury to my hip I am almost feeling back to normal. There are still a few things I cannot do but I am getting back on track. My exercise minutes are up and what I can actually do is increasing. I have peaked at 16 pounds gained thoughout this injury. My weight peaked at 147about 3 weeks ago and now looks like I am on the way back down. I am down 1 pound so far this week. I have been tracking EVERY food I eat. I had really gotten out of that habit. I am staying in my calories range (some days a little under) and burning the amount of calories I need each day (sometime more). I am 4 workouts away from completing the walking 5K Your Way program. I did the 2.5 miles today and took only 45 minutes. I am not up to full pace yet but I am so close. After completing the walking program I am going to progress to the walk/jog 5K.

I am definitely making progress. Just over a month ago I was still walking with a limp and next week I will be completing a walking 5K. I have a long way to go weight-wise but I am taking it one pound at a time.
