Biopsy, failure and baby, OH MY!

Sunday, January 20, 2013

This has been an interesting week and not one of my best for fitness. I had to have a nerve biopsy to check how much damage I have in my feet. My leg has been sore all week from it and not real happy when I walk or use it too much. So I have been babying my leg and not doing a lot of working out emoticon

I had been doing the January Jumpstart Challenge and over the last week I completely fell off of it. becuase of time constraints and the biopsy I was unable to do the videos and I stopped logging into it. I started to feel like a total failure for not keeping up with it (which lead me to avoid it even more). I should have started week 3 on Wednesday and instead I never logged back in emoticon It is taking some inner talk to make myself realize I am not a failure, I can still keep going and losing without logging in. This does not make me a failure, at least this is what I tell myself and hopefully soon I will believe it.

Then on Friday my first grandson was born! I cannot even begin to express how thrilled I am emoticon He is so sweet and I am looking forward to being a grandma.

This threw my sleep schedule off for the last 2 days though and yesterday I did not eat as good as I should have, but over all I did ok. And just look how sweet he is emoticon

My goals for this week are to continue to take it one meal, one moment and one day at a time. I will get my exercise in and I will be conscious of everything I eat and continue to choose wisely.

    Hope the biopsy results are in your favor,,,

    emoticon on the weight etc, too! Why don't you just log in to that challenge and do what you can? It's only failure if you let it be, it's YOUR CHOICE that makes the difference, and emoticon

    Congratulations on becoming a Grandma. You certainly have started the New Year with a lot on your plate (and I didn't mean food!)
    You have some healing and body repair to work on and of course cuddling the baby, jump start can start some other time!
    I'm sure you will be ok in a week or so and ready to be on track, exercising to your best potential and racking up the Sparkpoints
    big hugs

    What a beautiful baby! Congratulations!

    Don't feel bad about the challenge. Those things aren't designed for injuries. It sounds like you have the right plan...one success at a time. If you need to stay off your feet, I've heard good things about chair exercising. I know there are spark teams for it.

    Enjoy that baby! He's a beauty!

    Congratulation being a grandma is a very fun thing. It is a lot more fun than being a Mom.
