Switching it all up moving 4ward
Friday, May 15, 2020
Okay I was doing & feeling great. Then Wham-Bam it all stopped. I was at a stand still for it seemed like forever.It kind of all started when I broke my hip, and couldn't be so active. So I decided maybe to change my eating since I was limited on activity. So on to the Keto diet, which I found out just wasn't my cup of tea. So I tried the low carb diet. Well that's just what these were for me. Diets, a fast fix or a fad, at least for me. I was not looking for a diet I was looking for a good healthy lifestyle. Something that I can do everyday day. So I had to go to the Doctor, yes I actually seen him face to face. I talked to him about my way of life, how I was feeling what I was doing, what I was eating. Told him I was really starting to feel down. Felt like I set myself you for failure. Seems like every since I broke my hip, I have been struggling. Its been a yrs now. Was really improving for I was using the pool at our local HS 3 times a week. Then the virus happened the pool was closed. I am finally able to take short walks without my cane, but I have good days and bad. Some times I still need to use the cane as much as I don't want to. Gee to think I was a 5 mile a day plus walker before all this happen, makes me wonder will I ever get back there. The doctor introduced me to the Mediterranean way of eating.A much healthier option for me. Starting this knew way of life tomorrow. No more dreaming of fast fixes or fad diets for me. I need to stop being so hard on myself. Here lately I have been so impatient & easily frustrated.I know all things take time. I do a lot of home work outs, stretching workouts which do help my movement. My sister in law just gave me her Health walker machine the other day ( Which is a very expensive exercise machine, that she can no longer use).The Doctor said that will be a excellent way for me to build strength.He reassured that I will be out there doing those 5 mile walks again. He said that I am a determined & stubborn lady. Yes, he said I was stubborn. lol I guess He just gave me a great pep talk, some ideas, and tools. So tomorrow is a new day. Moving forward in a different way. I never stopped or gave up, but boy I have been struggling. I for sure am not a quicker. I have B positive as my blood type. lol I have reset & changed some of my goals, some of my friends. I joined a knew team that I think will be really good for me. So here is to better days a head. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I didn't mean for it to be so long.
