Well, it’s been three months since I broke my ankle. Three months of very little activity but the added benefit of being reliant upon Mom (mostly) to fix my meals for me. And we did try to keep it somewhat healthy/low-carb. Since I’ve been home, I’ve been indulging just a bit, but after stepping on the scale this afternoon (a couple of hours after eating a very large breakfast), I may have found the motivation I need to get back on the healthy-eating track.
Previous Weight (10/13/10):
Granted, I’m nowhere near where I wanted to be just three months out from my fortieth birthday—I’d hoped to be down in the low 200s if not the high 100s by now. But between self-sabotage and lack of willpower and motivation, I’m still working to get back down to the lowest I’ve been in fifteen to eighteen years (which I reached about a year and a half ago, in the 260s). However, even though I’m not going to hit my goal weight by the date on which I turn forty years old, that isn’t going to keep me from being fabulous by forty—by being on the path to a healthier, happier me!
The next step is to set a realistic short-term goal for myself—on step of which will include rejoining Weight Watchers for the accountability and moral support (hopefully this Sunday). Next week, I go back to the doctor for my three-month post-surgical follow-up and to find out if I can start going to the gym and walking on the treadmill, even just for a few minutes at a low speed. So, once I clear that hurdle, I’ll be able to set both weight loss and fitness goals.
What about you? What are your fitness/health goals for 2011?
