Need to Develop Better Coping Skills
Tuesday, August 23, 2011
I gained 9 lbs throwing myself a pity party!!! It is truly amazing how quickly the pounds come back on. It's too bad that it doesn't come off as quickly. LOL! I'm disappointed that I allowed my injuries (bursitis, pisiformis) to get the best of me. I focused on what I couldn't do instead of what I could do. Setbacks are apart of life and I need to develop better coping skills.
I'm back on track with Weight Watchers. I lost 1 lbs last week. My physical therapy has gone well . My therapist had me work on the pilates reformer. I loved it. He said it is good for stretching and creating a long lean body. I think that I will incorporate it into my workout routine once therapy is over. My hip bursitis isn't bothering me anymore!!! Woohoo!! My pisiformis ( right butt muscle) is still having spasms but it feels better than it has all summer. I met with my therapist tomorrow to see how we will proceed. On Saturday, I was able to walk 15 minutes on the treadmill, 15 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike in very little pain!!! It's been quite the journey but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
