I'm back

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Time flies when you fall off the wagon......

I, honestly, am afraid to step on a scale. I feel like I haven't been eating horribly, but that is probably just a feeling, not truth. By the tightness of my clothes, I know I need to change.

Okay. I will change.

I really struggled with my knee injury. It derailed my fitness fun. I tore my meniscus again last week, and although the breath-catching pain has stopped, I'm anxious about moving too quickly and having it reoccur. I do want to exercise though. Slow steps.

I have used it as an excuse. I can do sit-ups. Arm raises. I should be doing leg lifts to strengthen it. I raked my yard for an hour. Although I was careful, it is sore. It feels good though.

Here are my goals (with hopes that I remember how to set them on this site so I can have the joy of checking them off at the end of a day)

-exercise 10-min a day
-do yard work, for 30-min, 4 times a week

-Eat three meals a day with a SMALL snack in the morning and after school
-cook something twice a week (instead of snacking for dinner all night)

    The important thing is that you are back on it...the exercise train that is...or at least you are gearing up to board that train. Just do what you can and keep on keeping on! emoticon

    I am so sorry about your knee! I have trouble with both of mine, so I can certainly empathize with not just the pain, but aftermath. My fear of injuring it again was a bit paralyzing. Is there a pool where you could walk or swim gently? Keeping you in my thoughts! (I realize this blog post is nearly a month old, so I'm hoping that you are well on your way to full recovery!)

    Posted on here and read by a Sparkler!!!!

    I see no reason to step on a scale and bring yourself down! Why not set yourself a date far off to do it? Go 2 weeks or longer! So long as you stick to your goals and game plan of eating small meals and follow the Sparkpeople alloted shouldn't get on the scale until you want to!
