Other than that, things are just peachy, thanks.
I haven’t posted. I haven’t dieted. I’ve exercised a smidge but only if you compare that to the exercise I was getting BEFORE I joined this blog, which was exactly none, thank you.
I’ve been going back to the podiatrist because I’m still in so much pain from my massive reconstructive foot surgery that I had in March. He’s been doing a series of steroid shots which do seem to be helping. But truthfully? I could have exercised more during this time–I could have done the abs tape and gone to yoga more often. I could have put my bike on the trainer and just pedaled away. I could have been swimming laps–even when I couldn’t push off, I could have used a pullboy and gotten an upper-body work-out.
I didn’t do it.
I didn’t diet either. In the time that I’ve been bitching about how hideous I feel, my friend Kathy has been plugging away at non-glamorous Weight Watchers and has lost 16 pounds!
Me? Not lost one single bit, thanks.
So, I know what to do and honestly, it’s my sole goal for the first quarter of 2008. We’re going to be moving to New York in March and I need some better physical resources than I have. Also, I’d like NOT to look like my husband’s MOTHER. Once upon a time, he used to call me his trophy wife. Now I look more like the trophy… for discus throwing.
Anyway, I’m joining WW and I’m going to keep my food journal and I’m going to start exercising. I will even (oh, help me) give up alcohol for the duration. I am starting tomorrow (well, today. What was Jen’s post about sleep deprivation? Oh yeah, right.) –before New Year’s Eve. Because I am totally sick of looking and feeling like this.
Please send encouragement my way. I’m a little terrified but very resolute.
And, oh yeah, I’m going to post a lot more!
