Starting over in December....

Wednesday, December 09, 2015

2 months ago I was in a head on collision that sidelined me from any activity to complete my goals. So I had to drop out of the A & I BSG Challenges for 2 months as I recovered from a concussion & torn Meniscus resulting in surgery to clean up the knee tissue. I'm now doing PT for my knee to regain mobility & strength & ready to start back with my goal of getting my weight down.

My weight has crept up from 178.6 to 183.8 but I intend to get this weight in the downward trend.

My goals for December are:


*Continue my daily water intake of 10 cups daily
*Focus on 5-6 servings of FREGGIES daily
*Strive for 8 hours of sleep each night
*Adding walks in my day, will start with short 10 minute sessions & build up from there
*Continue my PT for the next 4 weeks which includes a workout on the recumbent bike & knee strengthening exercises
*Lose from 183.8 to 181

Time to get on track to finish out 2016. emoticon

    GLAD YOU ARE BACK. YOU CAN DO THIS. I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO START OUT SMALL NOT TO HURT YOUR KNEE MORE.

    I am so thankful you didn't get hurt worse from that head-on collision, Donna! It was rough coming back from that, but I am so glad you recuperated from the concussion had the knee surgery and are now healing and getting strength back. You have come a long way already! So happy you are back doing the BSG challenge and we are on the same team. You made great, reasonable goals. I know you will have a successful month, one day at a time! emoticon emoticon

    I know the last couple of months have been hard. You have a good plan to get back on track though. Just take it one day at a time and listen to your body. I know when I broke my leg a couple of years ago it was frustrating not to be able to do the things I normally did and wanted to do. I hope that you knee will heal quickly and you'll be able to do what you want to do without pain soon. emoticon

    Great goals for December! Take it slow and work your way up. You can do it one step at a time. After I broke my ankle, I began to appreciate what I could do before and didn't do. So now that it's healed, I make all the effort to do those things I wasn't capable of months ago. It's made me see how inactive I truly was and took for granted that I could even get up and walk around. Now I spend more time on my feet than sitting on the couch. All of this will get better, and stronger and you will be capable of many things. Remember those things you miss being able to do, and do them many times when you are capable. You can do it!

    Have gone through a meniscus tear and surgery. The bicycle is your friend! Take time and don't rush the recuperation. Taking time to do the PT is wonderful! Hang in there. emoticon
