The Lost Week. Or Two.

Monday, August 15, 2011

I haven't dared to approach the scale in the last week or two.

I injured my knee, probably from not stretching properly and pushing too hard too fast with regard to fitness, about two weeks ago.

Really depressing! And I haven't exactly gone back to my old eating habits, but I haven't been tracking, I know my water consumption has gone way down, and I haven't been thinking about what I eat either.

Time to put the breaks on this downward spiral before I eat myself back to the start line! I don't want that! I've worked too hard! My knee is getting better, and maybe I can't exercise, which is what was depressing me so, but I don't have to throw up my hands in terms of eating habits!

So, just checking in. I don't know how much I've set myself back, but funnily enough it was my feet that really scared me. They were getting boney from weight loss, actually looking like feet again. And tonight I looked down at them and they looked swollen . . . probably too much sodium and not enough water--but it scared me enough to try to get it back together.

Wish me luck! Hope everyone is doing well!

    Thanks, you two!

    Chair workouts! Holy crap! Never even thought of that! You're brilliant, Irish!

    You can do this... injuries.. well, they stink! Add the water back, start the tracking... and then check out some videos you can do for chair exercises, or not using your knee! Spark has a lot of them... no need to be sedentary! Or how about the pool?

    Just some ideas to help you jump back on track! We are all here for you - just let me know if there is something I can do specifically for you :)

    emoticon That's a great attitude. Just gotta get back on the wagon before it gets too far away! You'll catch up.
