Getting over it
Monday, July 16, 2012
It's taken me some time to come to terms with a doctor telling me I can't run anymore. I should know better. I should have realized that was just one person's opinion--albeit professional--and not entirely weighted (pun intended!) on the whole truth. Truth is, if I lose weight, clean up my diet and strengthen my core I can probably get right back into it.
Since cleaning up my diet (read reducing the acid forming foods) and strengthening my core will most likely lead to weight loss, I have come back to Sparkpeople.
I need to be honest with myself. I need to track my food. I need to KNOW the acid forming foods like the back of my hand and avoid them like the plague. I need to get portion sizes under control. I need to stop giving into cravings and I need to DRINK MORE WATER. Amazing how these little things are so easy to do but so easily slip from our daily habits, isn't it?
So it's time to set some new goals. I know how to do this because I've done it before. This might not be the last time I try, but as far as I'm concerned as long as I keep trying to get healthy, I'm heading in the right direction.
