Starting August with more motivation

Wednesday, August 01, 2018

I'm starting off August at the highest weight that I've ever tracked. I believe that the scale has showed a pound or two higher at one time but that's not something I'm proud of. I'm really ashamed of myself but I have no one to blame but myself.

It's been a challenge trying to exercise due to my ACL surgery in May. I really need to incorporate more strength training and work on exercises that I can do without aggravating the healing process.

I know that diet is more important than exercise but I really feel like I need both to feel better about myself. Just when I think that I'm doing well with eating, I can see that the scales have a different opinion. No matter what, I'm not giving up and I will push myself to log everything and make better choices. There should be an abundance of fresh vegetables on my plate, since most are in season right now.

Have a great day!

    Please don't be hard on yourself; it is not easy having surgery and the recovery process.
    Begin with this new month, but do what you can. (I like what CTYONIT said … wondering about swimming?
    Would that work for you for now?

    Hitting the reset button with you! I know just what you mean about feeling good when exercise is coupled with eating well. They help each other. When I exercise I hate to undo the hard work by poor eating choices and when I eat great foods I know I am building a better body for exercising. Since my hysterectomy, my exercise has been stunted (as per Dr)-- I was just given the green light for walking, but little else. A complete ACL recovery is more important at the moment. Are you able to swim at all? That could help relieve the stress all around the knee.
