Bumps on the Road

Monday, June 21, 2010

It seems like when I apply myself I hit another bump in the road. I know that sometimes I am my own worst enemy trying to push my limits, and that caused my last bump in the road.

Here are my June Bumps in the Road.
1. Vacation bump #1 - 50 hours in my car in 10 days
2. Vacation bump #2 - 3 Graduation Parties.
3. I pulled a muscle (Hamstring) when instead of walking I tried to jog.

The muscle pull is a challenge because they say it could take up to two weeks to heal, and then you should do what you can. I tried just to walk the day after it happened and I tweaked it again. I am getting older and knowing my boundaries is good, so I guess I had to explore it, and now I understand myself better.

Due to these bumps in the road even though for the most part I am tracking and exercising I have manage to maintain my weight, and made really good progress last week walking. My measurements saw everything decrease at least some, and my waist an inch and half which is very encouraging to me.

It's been a rough ride, but worth the trip.

    sometimes those bumps really emoticon hurt. but praise God the waist is shrinking emoticon inches count as much as pounds. I know because my pounds are dropping very slowly emoticon but the inches make up for it. as we get older we do have to be aliitle more careful. I'm with ya all the way. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
