What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

This Happened When I Added Sugar Back

As I unwrapped the Godiva truffle, I trembled a little. I kid you not. The velvety chocolate melted in my mouth. And I honestly thought I would eat just one. I did the first time.

But as the day went on, I had another, and another until by the end of the day I wound up binge eating about 8 at one time. I felt horrible physically and emotionally. It was my first binge of all or nothing in almost a month. How could I so easily slip back into old habits? I ate an entire bag.

The following days consisted of brownies, cupcakes and cookies.

And I felt sick... physically sick. I was bloated, my joints swelled and hurt, cranky, extremely moody with extreme highs and lows. I was no longer sleeping through the night, and by the 3rd night I woke up with night sweats.



If you are disappointed in me, trust me I am even more disappointed in myself. And I told myself it was time to get a grip.

I'm on my 1st day of no sugar. I don't have a predetermined amount of time that I will stay completely off of processed junk sweets. But I can see just how easy it is for me personally to slip back into old habits. That is not what I want for me or my family. And it is up to me to make the changes.

I did weigh in this week. Last week's weigh in (Another Week With Less Sugar Another Weigh In) was 125.8.

This week's weigh in was
127.8

Yeah, I'll just leave that number right there. I don't see that number as a defeat. I see it as a number, a learning experience, and a reminder of unhealthy habits.

But I can tell you that I have a burning desire to get this 43 soon to be 44 year old body in the best health that I can both physically and emotionally.

And I am doing what I can within my power to make it happen..... one small change at a time.

Join me.... I would love the company. And I would love to help motivate and encourage you along the way.
