+ 10

I stood on my bath scale tonight.   +10.   yep, there it is!
Ugh....I am so frustrated.  And since this is where I share all the good stuff, I am also going to share the downer of the day.  I am +10 and it ticks me off.  I have gained 10 pounds since my ruptured disk, which was in early May.  I am so mad that I let this happen.  Ugh.  Before I injured my back I was really doing well in taking good care of myself.  I had been eating well, drinking protein shakes, getting my workouts in and was 10 pounds lighter.  I felt good and my clothes were fitting better.   Then the back injury and the exercise was put on hold, even daily activity was limited.  So, here I am 10 pounds heavier...and so mad that my indulgences got the best of me.   I know what I did, too little movement while I ate whatever I felt like since I was hurting.   Not hard to see that, but now I need to take off the chunk and that won't be any fun.   Since I am so mad about my body right now I am going to use that number "10" and say out loud 10 positive things about gaining10 pounds.
1.   Lots of rest in bed= no calorie burn
2.   Eatting ice cream at night
3.   I enjoyed being told not exercise at all.  None. Zippo...Zilch.
4.  even though I gaing 10, I can now feel my left leg because of the successful back surgery
5.   I caught up on all my DVR'd shows and reality t.v......I swear those shows make you gain.
6.  Pretty much eatting anything I wanted, which I obviously enjoy
7.  snuggling in bed with my dog, kitty cat and kiddos
8.   My boobs got bigger
9.  At least I am not pregnant.
10.  There is more of me to love

There it is.....I am back on track today.  The Dr. has given me the go ahead to start exercising slowly.  I am grateful for my health.  I am grateful that the surgery was totally successful.   And I am grateful that I know how to lose it, just mad that I have to do it again.

You're fine! I think it's healthy to have these weeks once in awhile to just be. Then it gives us more perspective on WHY we stay healthy the rest of the year. And you were recovering...from back surgery! So happy to hear it was a success.

Thank you for visiting the fiddlehead report!
