2018 - My year to be ... December

Sunday, December 09, 2018

Hello Sparkworld emoticon

It has been a LONG time since my last blog in June. And even though I posted that blog to keep myself accountable - it just didn’t happen. Not sure if anyone will read this blog but I’ve got to put it out there for me. I do go back time and time again to read my blogs to find some sort of motivation. Not sure how “motivating” this one will be, but I need to post an update and hopefully in time can look back and say “wow, that was my ah-ha moment and look how far I’ve come”. One can only hope.

This weight gain journey, yes “weight gain” journey has just been what it is. I’d like to say it’s been a weight loss journey, but in being honest it hasn’t been. I have managed to creep my weight up HIGHER than I have ever ever ever been. And sadly it hasn’t really bothered me. Have I just given up and don’t care? Not really sure myself actually. Hopefully I can find some self-discovery here and figure that out.

I’ve been dealing with various foot issues for over a year now and finally had enough the other day and took myself straight to the chiropractor office on my way home. I need some sort of relief and hoping with chiropractic care and stretching I can get my foot back to working order. I can’t walk great distances without excruciating foot pain and then I have to deal with a sore foot several days after.

Since 2018 “My year to be” is coming to a close and I CLEARLY didn’t make my goals this year with weight loss and my walking 1000 mile challenge. I can look forward to having a successful year for 2019. Despite my foot, I do have a clean bill of health - good blood pressure, good cholesterol and lower blood sugar levels. All is good with me health wise ... just gotta to something about this weight gain. Losing weight I know will help my foot issues too!

Over the next few weeks as 2018 comes to a close I am going to work on my self-help plan for 2019. I have been doing better on eating healthier, we eat out much less than we used to a few months ago. I’m cooking more at home when I am in the mood to do so or there is at least healthy options for the family to “fix own” when I’m not feeling it to cook dinner! LOL

I want to make a yearly 2019 goal - but with small milestone goals too. Not necessarily all health and food related goals but in general life goals as well.

Here’s to a healthier 2019 emoticon. God gives me the chance to make better choices each day by waking me up every morning and giving me another day. I need to embrace those blessings and get myself to a healthy weight for myself and my family. I’ve got a lot of years to live and I’m not going to continue to do it this way!

    emoticon I am with you, my hip has been giving me fits, so I have had to find other ways to stay fit too. I have been taking up rowing at my gym. And I take a LOT of Ibuprofen! Do you have a stress fracture? emoticon
