When I look at this image, I am taken back to when that was me. It wasn’t that long ago really. About 5 years I think. I had been pretty much on the same path I am now. Losing weight, getting my FBS in line, and being healthier. But there is one difference.
I was counting on a high level of exercise to make it work. I tracked my food.. I did all the stuff that I had read would ‘work’. And they did. I lost 78 lbs and things were pretty good. Up until I fractured my ankle.
So, I could no longer count on the calories being burned off. And having been on a course that required a lot of energy, my calories were higher than they needed to be. But I kept eating them. And I kept trying to get back to running. The problem was, everytime I did, I’d fracture my ankle again. So it was a big circle of disappointment. Eventually I quit tracking anything, and I gained back a little over 50 lbs.
This time, I’m doing a more sustainable loss. I don’t track food, and I don’t ‘run’ everyday. I am focused more on the ‘kinds’ of food I eat. I do go to the gym daily, but only for 25 to 30 minutes. I’m not there for an hour and a half pounding out 10+ miles on the treadmill. I do 25 minutes on a bike one day...and the next day I lift weights. It’s working, sustainable, and let’s me do 1 thing.
Breathe. Take the time to just breathe. Take a break and breathe.
Timer went off. Gotta run.
Peace, Love and Understanding.
I’ll see ya’ll down the road
