Every Day Can't and Won't Be Perfect
Monday, December 16, 2013
That's a hard thing to remember. All one can do is to do their best and that's what I'm trying to do.
I'm frustrated with myself. My knees hurt so long walks are out. I took the weekend off from walking and did upper body stuff but I know that every day that goes by without a walk makes it that much harder to start back up again. My legs really want to walk! My knees are saying no! I've been resting and icing. I was going to wrap them yesterday but DH and I forgot. I definitely can't make it to the doctor till after the holidays so hopefully there is nothing really wrong. The right knee actually feels better, but the left one kept me awake most of the night, even with pain meds. Tired AND frustrated.
The worst part is, every time I start trying to get healthy I get hurt somehow. Then I end up stopping for months until the day comes where I decide to try again.
I'm really determined not to let that happen this time (even though it's constantly on my mind). I may not be able to walk, but I can do some stretching and upper body work. I may not be able to walk but I can still eat healthy and track my food.
So no, every day is not going to be perfect. My fitness tracker won't move very much this week and I won't be meeting that goal, but it's not for lack of willpower. I may not lose much weight but I'm not going to be gaining any.
I can still do this! I may have to just adjust what "perfect" means this week!
