You know that moment, the first time you step on the scale in months due to an injury or illness?? It was a wake-up call this morning. To be honest, I can’t say that I wasn’t expecting it. My eating has been far from 100% since I hurt myself at the end of August. Add that along with not working out, it just seems to have gotten out of control. I have stated to some dear friends that I would hit my goal in 2016. I can honestly say that it is my lack of focus on what I am eating. It would definitely seem it is time to re-group and re-focus on what I need to do. I have been using Pinterest to research and come up with a meal planning/meal prepping game plan along with watching some great videos on meal prepping on YouTube. I feel like it has definitely got ideas brewing in my head and now, with a little help from family, I’m hoping to put it in play.
I am a little more mobile, but still limited. I am certain the Physical Therapy is helping. I won’t be going back to the doctor until January and by then I am hoping to be moving much more. I have been advised that I can get on the Arch Trainer and the bike (for 5 to 10 minutes, at the moment). Not for long periods of time on the Arch Trainer, but to let my pain level be my guide. I think that focusing on the food will be the first order of business since I can control what’s going in my mouth, to some extent.
I am not going to post my weight right now as I have not weighed in on the official scale, but will do that when I have. I know I have to hold myself accountable to someone initially. I will, however, post some goals:
I want to prepare my lunch and snacks to bring to work.
I want to make sure that I have snacks packed for work.
I will eat every 4 hours.
I will focus on my fruits/veggies and protein.
Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!
