Getting Back on Track

My thoughts on weight loss and the life of a married working mom

Getting Back on Track

Okay, so I haven’t been making the best food choices lately and I’ve been eating like crap. It’s crazy how I do this to myself because the worse I eat, the worse I feel. Why are carb-loaded fried foods so tempting while that carrot and hummus just pales in comparison?

To be fair, I’ve had a lot going on these past couple of months. My hysterectomy really threw me for a loop when nerve damage in my neck and shoulders paralyzed my arms for two weeks. I’ve been focusing on physical therapy and getting back to work. But now PT is winding down and I’ve decided to replace my visits to the physical therapist with going to the gym. It feels like a natural transition so tomorrow I’m going to an inexpensive gym near my home to check it out and sign up. My goal is to start out going 2 to 3 times per week just like I was going to physical therapy.

This week’s goals:

Saturday – Sign up for a gym membership and complete 20 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training.

Sunday – Clean out fridge and cupboards and surround myself with healthy and tasty food options.

Monday – go to PT.

Tuesday – Go to the gym and complete 20 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training. Tuesday evening – weigh in at Weight Watchers and attend meeting.

Wednesday – Go to gym and start tracking WW points again

Thursday – Day off. Sleep in.

Friday – go to PT

Saturday – Start over with going to the gym.

Also – keep blogging to hold myself accountable and track my progress.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being this is hopeless to 10 I can completely do this, I give myself an 8. I’m counting on you, my friends, to keep me accountable. Let’s do this!
