I missed last month and for that I'm sorry, but at least it isn't because I've fallen off the wagon. As the title says, I'm down 12.6 pounds since January 1st and going steadily along. 11 of that happened in January. I plateaued the first two weeks of February when I stopped exercising to recover, and then dropped another 1.6 since I've been able to move more.
I'm happy about this overall because it means that my eating didn't increase the way it usually does during my period and when I'm worn down and have to recoup. That's a very good sign for how the beginning of this year, and hopefully beyond will go.
I haven't been back on the stationary bike or using my hoop like I'd hoped. Most of my activity has been getting my 10K steps or close to it, and bouncing to music on my balance ball which I love. Lately, it's been just the ball, but as long as it's working right?
I'm in a low energy phase with the CFS, but I'm steadily working forward with it. Everything is harder with a chronic illness, but no goal is impossible, some just take more creative thinking. In my case, when you can't run, walk. When you can't walk...bounce!
What ways have you all found to work around obstacles and sneak in the activity you need?
