Hello and welcome back to the sitcom I call my life.
I know it’s been a good two weeks since I last posted anything about my ongoing health issues. Well, it just took me a while to come up with excuses not to post.
Actually Not a whole lot has changed since the last report. Well, unless you count not exercising at all for over a month already. Just as I was finally feeling good enough to get back at it I managed to have my little “close encounter of the pavement kind“.
Anyhow, enough with the excuses already. Time to get back on the scale and see what it has to say.
Not really much to report here. I was just getting back into doing some exercising when I got into the accident. My injuries are fortunately not serious, however the ones to my knee and foot in particular make doing anything a slow process right now.
Once again, I’ll focus on healing first.
I’ll start up with swimming as soon as the road rash heals up. They won’t let me in the pool with it, although the doctor said it would be fine.
I have actually been doing ok on the eating front. I have been in quite a few situations these last few weeks that were difficult, camping for example. I did not bother trying to count points, I simply looked at what I had available and tried to make the healthiest choice from the options I had.
I suceeded more often then I failed this time, although I still failed more often than I wished I had.
Last time I posted I was sitting at 237. It had been three weeks since I had weighed in, and I was happy to drop a pound. Since then I have been able to exercise even less, however I have also paid a bit better overall attention to what I ate.
The end result?
It was a wash… I came out at 237 Lbs again.
I was really hoping for a loss, but all things considered I am happy to have not put any weight back on.
Moving forward I plan to keep at this. It is not a short term goal of getting down to a certain weight by a certain day… that path leads to failure. It is an evolving change to the way I interact with the world. Little changes add up, I just need to keep at it.
Little changes add up to big ones.
I need to remember that.
