Starting Week 6 Injured but thinking positive.

Monday, July 10, 2017

I fell on the stairs during the night and I think I broke a toe on my left foot. I am thankful that I was able to catch myself with the banister and was not hurt worse. TOPS weigh-in showed that I weighed the same as last week despite my home scale showing a 1 1/4 pound loss for the week. I was a little disappointed, but not overly concerned. I know that the important thing is that I am feeding my body the right amount of the right nutrients with foods that I enjoy. I was pretty active last week most days though I think I will not be walking much until my toe heals.

I bought a stability ball with birthday funds from my sons and am eager to try that out. Unfortunately the pump broke with the ball only half inflated. The company was great though and is replacing the pump including shipping. The new pump should arrive Thursday and I hope to have my stability ball ready to try out by Saturday. I found lots of videos on the internet for low-impact exercises using the ball. An added bonus is that they are supposed to improve posture and strengthen the back when used as a replacement desk chair.

This will be a good week to try out some of the sparpeople limited mobility videos and getting in some exercise while seated in a chair. My 40th anniversary high school reunion is coming up in a little over 2 weeks. Though the weight is coming off slower than I had hoped I am still feeling excited to see everybody and though my weight has not improved much over the past 5 weeks, (7.75 pounds down) I feel 300% healthier.
