I have had a lot going on around here. Obviously, right? Well one thing I haven’t shared is that I am trying to lose weight again. I had lost some before Jemma was admitted to the hospital. I gained over 10 pounds while there and then started to try again when we got out. I will admit that I don’t really try all that hard though. I mean, I watch what I eat… kinda. I don’t eat as much but that isn’t always done the right way. I have a treadmill but it hurts my knees. We found an elliptical in someone’s trash but I haven’t used it. Sadly, my joint pains are causing some difficulty with exercise too. I am working on a solution for that and will share more on that later. For now, I want to talk about my plans for the future.
Yeah, I have plans. Right now, I look outside and see slush, snow, and it is freaking cold. I dread going outside. Once the weather warms up though, I want to start walking again. I always enjoy walking around my neighborhood. If my joints get better, I hope to be able to walk at least a mile everyday. I want to get Jemma outside too. I love having my baby get some fresh air with me. So, I have started looking at strollers. My first stop was to view lightweight strollers from Britax. I have seen many bloggers talk about them and figured it was a good of place to start as any. I have checked out some jogging strollers too. I am still at a loss for what is best for me though. In time, I hope to make a decision.
I also plan on going back on my doctor’s prescribed diet. That is what I was doing before Jemma went in the hospital and it worked really well for me. I don’t drink regular soda (can’t give up diet yet) and I know I need to up my water consumption. I haven’t been drinking as much water as I did when I worked. I know I need to get back to that. I am using my FitBit again and keep track of my steps. I can’t wait until I actually meet my daily goals. I really will too!
But, back to now. It is cold. It isn’t fun to exercise by myself. What do you do during the cold months???
