Setbacks and Adjustments
When I have a plan, I really like to follow it through. When something comes along and derails that plan, I notice I fall apart.
Last week I found out that I will need a minor surgery on my back to excise a mole that the biopsy ruled atypical. It actually has quite a fancy name. I won’t be able to do any exercises for a few days after the procedure on Thursday and nothing with my back for 2 weeks when the stitches will be removed. Then it’s a wait and see when I can get back to it.
So, you know what I did last week? Nothing. No exercises anyway…except the 2-3 pull-ups my son has me do every day. I did nothing. Pathetic really. I could have really pushed myself on my upper body last week and at least I’d have done something to help while I wait.
On a positive note, I DID eat well. I even lost weight…the same weight I keep taking off and putting back on, but at least it’s gone again. I officially weighed in at 170.2 today.
So my new plan is to see if I can treadmill on Friday…and go from there. I will keep eating right, and hopefully I will continue to see my weight drop.
My husband has joined me on my diet and has already lost more than 5 pounds. I am so glad for him, really I am, but at the same time it is so discouraging. I am so jealous of how easy it comes off him. So, I’m also going to work on focusing on my progress and not comparing…harder than it sounds for me.
