Going to have to get creative.
Thursday, October 06, 2016
I can't let this ruin everything for me. I am having a hard time brainstorming about what I CAN do right now with my messed up leg. Instead I keep getting derailed by what I can't do.
But, like, people in wheelchairs compete in the olympics. I have no excuse except for a lack of creativity.
I am going to try to make it to the gym tonight. I know I can still work on my upper body, and my core could definitely use some attention. The problem is, without cardio, my weight is going to balloon back up. That's just how my metabolism works. And that is so, so discouraging.
I might need to invest in a couple of sessions with a personal trainer to brainstorm our way through this.
I'm going to try to stick around here. My goal is to start tracking food, at least. I'm scared, because I eat like an athlete. I typically hike or run between 17-21 miles each week, and I need the extra calories I consume. Plus, I like eating :) I'm going to have to cut that back. Like, way back. And just in time for all of the delicious fall treats, and the holidays. This is going to be a challenge.
