Back in 2015... With a foot injury

Saturday, January 03, 2015

Hi!. Long time, no me. I have been MIA for a very long time. I am not proud of this fact but I have finally found my way back.

During my absence I kept up with my exercise routine until mid September 2014. Then I slowly tapered off until I stopped completely. With the absence of exercise, my eating habits started to spiral out of control. As a result of these actions, or lack of action on my part, I believe I've regained about 25 pounds which I found extremely hard to lose in the first place. I'm not for sure about that number because I'm too chicken to step on the scale.
But I am back before all of my lost weight returns and brings extra friends with it.

I am returning with an injury, a partially torn tendon or ligament in my foot which will make exercising a challenge for the time being but I will figure it out. I'm starting with 10 minutes a day and plan to build up from there.

I am back to logging my food too. I really missed doing that and don't know why I stopped in the first place.

I feel really crappy and do not want this horrible feeling to continue. emoticon

So I am glad to be back and look forward to reconnecting with my friends here.

    (Found you blog via another poster...!) Way To Go!! You're re-orienting yourself with the food tracking...and that's probably THE most important step you can take. The next *step* will be onto that scale I think: someone very special here on Spark once told me: You have to know where you are before you can choose where you want to be.... One last idea...have you checked out the short SPark Seated Workout videos?? I've had several foot surgeries, and found them wonderful!! there's core, upper body, lower body and even cardio. I had to watch my foot, and modify some of the moves, but enjoyed them. A great place to start if you've been compromised and dont' want to reinjure your foot!
    All the best, patti
