Wake-up Call Wednesday

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!
