New Year's didn't go off the way I had hoped...mind over matter...mind over matter.. no, honestly, it sucked. Woke up New Year's Eve with a pinched nerve on the right side of my neck and after 5 days I was just starting to feel it release only to wake up Monday morning to find that it had moved to the left side. I can't spend my life on pain meds, I know I have to keep moving.
Yesterday was for me the real start for the New Year...kids and spouse are back to school/work and I have my space back. I got busy early in the morning and got my dishes done and myself pulled together before running off to my WW meeting. We talked about what our plan or resolutions were for the New Year..perhaps start to exercise or try new recipes etc. My plan is to get my home organized, get myself on a personal level organized and with any luck my family will fall in line.
I am anxiously awaiting a FedEX from Old Navy, I took advantage of their New Year sale online for work out clothes. I fully intend to start moving one way or another. Whether its at home or walking the mall or joining a gym or maybe even Curves again. Its time to take control and get fit again.
Weightloss since Christmas took that small slide..I was doing great until the pinched nerve. I haven't been tracking but I also know I haven't been horrible at my eating either. I think I am retaining fluid (my husband tends to overseason..so I am back to cooking) and the inflammation/pain, I am sure adds to my weight flucuating. I am back to tracking though and I am constantly reminding myself this isn't a sprint to get thin...I am a work in progress mind, body and health.
Short term goals this week is to try at least 2 new recipes, track daily and figure out how to set up my darn Active Link that I bought at WW's yesterday.
