just a quick post. i was thinking about how in the first 6 months of this year i lost 30 pounds. i had hoped to lose 50 pounds total by the end of the year. but things happened. a hysterectomy. and a long recovery.
so i changed my focus to just maintaining. not gaining. which was tough. the first few weeks after surgery i didn't move much and i ate some junk food.
in the entire 8 weeks of recovery i only gained 2 pounds. and now those pounds are gone. so my new goal for the rest of the year (only 2 months left!) is to just get back to the gym more and more. and get my eating habits healthier. maybe lose a few pounds.
i've been swimming 3 times a week. back to the full 45 minutes when i'm feeling good. i hope to get back spinning in another week. then weights.
and things will change again. a week, month or year from now, who knows what i'll be doing. i think as long as i focus on baby steps and small improvements, i'll be just fine.
one thing i'm proud of: i started working out and eating healthy at the end of december, and i'm still doing it. i didn't give up. :)
so, just wanted to get that stuff on the blog. now i'm going to eat sushi. tomorrow swimming. it's pretty good.
