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.
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? 611 days ago
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.
