and we're back!

I still don’t feel that great physically but I did exactly what I said I was going to do.  It doesn’t actually take me that long to figure out that being pathetic doesn’t have any added value.

I know I don’t have a whole lot to contribute to the weight loss  blogging world right now, but just know that when I’m really able, I’m going to be in FULL FORCE.  What a change from a year ago when I wouldn’t have even thought about missing good healthy food and working out. 

Yesterday I actually had my running shoes on for the first time since right before my surgery and it was bittersweet.  It felt so good to have them on and yet I knew I had to take it easy and just WALK instead of run.  But walk I did.  I walked for about 40 minutes and did some light stretching for about 5.  It felt very good to be outside in the fresh air.  That’s another change (my husband doesn’t call me vliermuis for nothing).  I so look forward to going out and MOVING hard again!

I never thought I would be in a position where I couldn’t do even the tiniest things physically.  That I wouldn’t be able to pick something up that I dropped or get something from a bottom shelf.  Or, hey, shave my legs!  I can not even bend over enough to shave my freaking legs!  I can tell you, as soon as I’m able, I am never going to take advantage of my physical self again.  I don’t know how I’m going to protect myself from this issue again, but I’m definitely going to look into it.  Tomorrow I go back to the doctor and I’m going to discuss this with her.

I am so ready to get out there again.  Watch this space because when I’m back, I’m going to be kicking ass harder than ever!!
