The Day Before Tomorrow

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Sometimes life feels like it's just one thing after another. Pain, problems, surgery, injury, and now to top it off, falling on my face after tripping over a curb at church on Sunday. Got to watch out for those jumping curbs... Thankfully my chiropractor has got me into pretty good working order after that little episode, I get to see him again today, he is the best!

I found myself getting really irritated about all this stuff this week, seems like a long time since I've felt normal, it has been since November. It feels like a lot longer than that though.

I stepped on the scale yesterday and I was up 6 pounds. I think the lack of exercise is causing a lethargy to creep into all areas of my life. Other than checking in and going through Spark Coach, I haven't even been on here much.

Good news is that I am able to walk again. Now I just need to find the motivation to get out and do it... it's a beautiful spring day outside, so I am not sure why I just don't go.

I reset my goals, and have an "official" kick off date of tomorrow to track all of my food, and get back on the exercise wagon. Why not today? it's that ol' can't start in the middle of the day syndrome kicking in I guess. How silly does that sound. I promise that I will track my dinner tonight though! So tomorrow is my official kick off weigh day, and back to walking for me.

Well, I better get off. I need to get my laundry done, and finish up a little housework. Got to make sure I have some clothes ready for the gym tomorrow....

Hope you all are having a fantastic day!

    I went through a phase like that too. I thought I had taken a turn for the worse, everything was breaking down at once. But you do get past it. Walking will help you feel better, really. Try to think of it more like 'this is what I like to do" instead of the official start of something. No need to chase yourself with a stick. Just enjoy it because it's fun and something to do. If it starts to feel like there's too many things to do at once. Then pare down and do only one or two. Walk everyday and eat your veggies. That's a great way to start and you can always build from there. Best news is though, is that you are Doing It ! Hooray for you! emoticon

    I'm so glad you can walk again! And I am sorry life is throwing you some grounders and curves. I had a rotten day today and prolly will tomorrow too because Thursdays are my WORST days at school but hopefully it will surprise me.
    I wish it would warm up here so I could walk outside!!

    Seems like you and I are on the same boat! I blacked out over a month ago and hurt my knee--leaving me unable to exercise. I too, stepped on the scale and gained weight! Looks like we are in this journey together! I will be thinking of you tomorrow when I go for my walk!!

    Best of Luck!
