Fitness/ Weight Loss Journal – Day 15 & 16
No I am not intending to skip days and write here. It just happens to have happened. I had a bad fall on the road, scraping my knee. Something that has not happened in ages. Falling on the road was as a child my biggest fear. The intense pain that those few scratches lead to has been unbearable for me. So as an adult I am even more careful.
But what has to happen, happens when you least expect it to happen. Standing on the edge of the road walking my dog I was scanning my mobile. And Mr Cookie found someone he wanted to chase and tugged on his leash and before I knew it I was on the road. It was not a bad fall and I immediately got up getting a grip on his leash not realising my knee was oozing blood.
I like to act brave and started continuing the walk, but few steps and I knew I could not go much further. I came home dressed my wounds and stepped out again. Managed two rounds for my dog that day and ever since all activity is halted.
So steps not happening, workout not happening, yoga also not happening. All that is happening is late nights reading and late mornings sleeping – guilt free 😉
Saving grace has been sticking to my diet!
Generally when things fall apart I fear getting on the scale. But I drew some courage and got on the scale today, to see that I am still dropping weight! That is the power of diet. You can loose weight just by sticking to a diet plan with zero workout. But unless you follow a diet you cannot loose weight at all.
I do not see myself returning to my workout schedule anytime before Monday. But yes I will continue following my diet like I have been doing. I cannot put my knee on the ground so tomorrow I plan on doing workout that can be accomplished without doing that. Will update on that tomorrow.
Love and Light!
