Timing

Well, pooh. I’d hoped to be much further along in my fitness goals (read: how I look in the mirror makes me go “yay!”) than I am right now. I have a little over two weeks until my Maine vacation and I’d hoped to be much more svelte. But two things threw off my progress, and therefore the timing of pre-trip svelteness. One, I threw my back out and had to take about a week off from working out. Two, I had the Essure procedure and am in the midst of taking another week off from working out. And three, during both of those periods of time off I was (am) an emotional eater.

So at this second in time, I am trying valiantly to limit my caloric intake, since I’ll be idle until Friday. Then when Friday rolls around I have to “ramp up” my workouts, instead of just jumping in full swing to the level I was at before. So, really, I’ll only have a week or so of solid workouts before we head to Maine. It’s not for a particular reason that I want to be fit for Maine, really; it was just a seemingly-achievable goal at the time that I set said goal. Now, it isn’t.

And that kind of bums me out.

    Injuring yourself by going too hard too fast after your back injury and surgery would bum you out a lot more.

    Don’t be so bummed you can’t enjoy yourself!

    Agreed with TB. Adjusting goals because of life happening does not mean that you fail.

    I’m sorry for the setbacks, but the big picture is more important and we have to keep remembering this is a journey, not a race. Easy for me to say when instant gratification is my downfall, but I’m trying to practice what I preach too.
