Back at the beginning of January i had all these plans to change my diet, exercise more, generally get out of the rut i felt i was in but then just before christmas it appeared i’d trapped a nerve in my neck. The pain at first was unbearable, it has made me so much more understanding of those who have this sort of pain long-term. This is the 7th week now and with regular physio and medication things seem to start feeling a little better.
I’m now on day 3 of my diet, well i’m not following a diet as such just not eating what i know is bad. After so many years of trying different diets i’ve learnt what works and what doesn’t 🙂 On day 1 i weighed myself to give me a start weight and plan to weigh in on friday’s in the hope by loosing something it will keep me motivated through the weekend.
As well as watching what i’m eating i’ve dug out my wii fit and done 30 minutes exercise on there each day, not much i know but i’m trying to be more active generally, been ages since i’ve had the motivation to give the house such a good clean 🙂 and i’m gagging to get out into the garden ( seperate blog for garden). I try to walk most places i go such as hospital for physio and popping to town both are only 30min journeys. As for dog walking the weather is still so wet i’ve only managed to get out with the ‘girls’ every few days and then when we get back they all need baths as they’ve not yet learnt to stay on the paths and out of the muddy puddles.
My mood has lifted too, i’m feeling a lot more positive about everything and looking forward to a great 2013 even if it started a little later than i’d planned.
