One Thing After Another

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

I feel like I've been hit by one thing right after the other.

First my ankle, then my knee, then my migraines and now my IBS issues seem to look more and more like Gall Bladder issues.

I'm always inspired and always have my health on the front burner but I lose momentum quickly it seems of lately.

I always have a new plan which seems to never get off the ground or if it does, it doesn't stay up in the air for long.

I have two scales that seem to be completely off from each other and it is driving me a bit bonkers because I don't know which to trust...I'm thinking I might just start trusting my jeans again, they never lie.

Most of April was a stand still with me being at the same weight for about 3 weeks of the month. This May I'm hoping to see some changes. I would love to get out of the 230's for one and back into the 220's. My original goal for June 1st was to hit 225 so I'm a bit off but I think it can be done with a lot of work.

Now only to get motivated and stay away from illness and injury.

    Hi I think I get where you're coming from. I have bad knees (birth defect). I had ankle surgery a few years ago and one of the screws broke. I had elbow surgery last year and I'm still working to regain the strength in that arm. I also had my gallbladder removed 2.5 years ago and I still have some issues post surgery. Given my track record I question whether I should ever leave the house, lol. Sometimes it seems like the universe is just piling it on and it makes it hard to dig up the motivation to keep going. Just keep moving forward. Like 13610511 and GLAMOURGIRL-9 said take it slow. Don't put too much pressure on yourself and experiment until you find something that works for you. I put on quite a bit of weight after my health problems. I just started trying to do something about it. Cardio was killing my ankle so I've switched to more low impact or no impact workouts that are easy on my battered joints. Also Seargentmajor got me into resistance band training which is really helping me build strength. I would say pick one scale or go with the jeans method. Inches lost is probably a better indicator of how you're doing than pounds lost anyway. emoticon

    It is tough when there is injury. I have issues with my hip. I went to physical therapy and that helped build up the muscle, and I was doing pretty good for awhile, but every so often, I do something that puts me back in pain mode, which I have been in for the last few days. It is frustrating, when you can't depend on a body part!

    So, I guess it just takes longer when dealing with illness and injury but we still need to be moving forward even if it is baby steps. Baby steps are still steps.
