Hello Wonderful Blog Readers!
I’m one week into focusing on my health again and I feel great! I have no technical success to speak of yet (i.e. pounds down, inches lost, etc.) but I’ve been able to meet my initial goals which are all habit-based:
- Logging my food daily
- Hitting 10,000 steps daily (this is big since I’m recovering from a major injury)
- Getting back to actively thinking about what I eat
Obviously this is just a start but rebuilding my healthy habits is the only way I’m going to truly get healthy again.
I know enough about health and fitness goals to know the food I eat is more important than the exercise I get in, but I have to say it feels AMAZING to get back to a 10,000 step goal. Before my injury happened I had finally reached a point in my life where I considered myself to be athletic. Because of that, the last 5 months of recovery has been brutal. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of things I love that I still can’t do:
- Kickboxing (although I’m close to getting back to the fundamentals for this)
All that being said, getting back to 10,000 steps feels a lot like taking my power back. If I can do 10,000 steps, I can eventually get back to everything, including my healthy goals, my healthiest weight, and even my final ideal weight and size.
I will get there. It’s just a matter of time!
