Well, I have not updated for almost 2 1/2 months and as I mentally begin to list off my reasons, all I hear is excuse, excuse, excuse. For the most part my mind is right.
My son, pre-man at 17 and all took a hard fall and managed to fracture both is ankle and knee on different legs. I had lulled myself into a sense of almost being finished. He is the baby. The last one. This was a definite set back and frankly; I was blindsided. All that extra time I had been enjoying? It dried right on up. It's true; they will never stop being our bay-bees. I am Grateful that God allowed him to heal with no surgery. We have a bout coming up with ankle and knee rehab. But I know he will be stronger when finished.
Due to his accident, my foot surgery was delayed. I found myself in pain that was uncontrollable. You would have thought it funny to see me try to Praise Dance with my Church Family. It's called the Jericho March for a reason. Every painful step bore a request for healing for both my son and myself. Those closest to me knew and could tell the pain was excruciating. Sometimes you have to dance in pain. I can't explain it. You just have to do it. So happy that my procedure went well and I am home recovering.
My project management classes are swiftly underway and I am struggling to keep up. Reasonsable reasons right? Well maybe. I am not sure that I had to drift off my path. I just think I let it happen.
Weight wise: I am a bit amazed. My last blog weigh in was the last week in September. I have not been on HCG in over 3 months. Surprisingly, I feel like I have gained it all back. Have not been on the scale because I did not want to be disappointed. Today I stepped on the scale and was relieved! God keeps us when we can't keep ourselves.
Last weigh in: 288.8 lbs. (TOM)
Today's weigh in: 290.8 I did not take a pic but I will get back with it. I actually did not remember what my last weight was and was sure this was at least 10lbs heavier.
Yes it is a 2 lb gain. No I am not upset with it. I think you can guess my eating has been all over the place. I tried to maintain my activity level and finally it subsided. Starting over is going to hurt and you best believe I know it. Activity limited while I heal; but no reason why I can not work on my eating again. #ThanksgivingAndAll
When I first envisioned this blog, I saw it as a way to share #TheAdventuresOfHizRib. My journey for a healthy lifestyle as just one faucet of many. I have found this extremely difficult! Turns out, I am super private and not always in the mood for sharing. Well. I will be working on that.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Find a Grateful spirit and you will find miracles.
More adventures to come, and regular posts starting 11/25.
