Mamavation Monday - Back on the wagon!

(I am writing this Friday night, so if the timeline seems off, it is!)

mamavationsistahoodsealI guess you could say I am back to normal! I haven't weighed myself officially, but I am going to work on getting back into my healthy eating and exercise routine for about a week, then see what the scale has to say. My last weight before I got sick was 275.8, so I am going by that to see how my weight next week compares. I am officially beginning exercise again tonight (Friday) as I go on a walk with my sister and dad. I am a little nervous as I have been out of a routine now for almost 3 weeks. And I still lack a little bit of energy.


My goals for this week are to journal what I eat, and begin adding exercise back into the mix. And I am still struggling with getting ALL of my water in. I really want to buy a Hydracoach water bottle to help me with this! Maybe I will be able to get one with my Scentsy commission!

I would like to thank my friends and family, and especially God for bringing me through this battle with Colitis. I am a very healthy person, so being sick for 3 weeks, really had me down in the dumps.

Welcome back!

I too just started working out again last week. Word of advice: make yourself do it. I felt a lot better and slept a lot better when I started back on a normal exercise routine!

Have a great week

I'm glad your back at it! Just take it easy and make small goals! Have a great week and see you at Mamavation TV.

Rachel said...

Welcome back! I am glad to read that you are feeling better! Regarding the hydracoach, I think @Lovelyritaann will be holding a giveaway on her blog soon - you might want to ask her about that. :P

Have a great week!

I'm so glad you're feeling better! I would just take it slow as you get back into exercising - I personally have a tendency to go overboard and then end up overdoing it & feeling worse!

Glad to see you back on the wagon! Slow and steady this week to get your feet wet!

{{hugs, hugs, hugs}}

I am soooo sorry you've had such a rough three weeks. :( I hope this up-swing continues for you so you can get back to your routines.

Thanks for the advice on my post, I really appreciate it. Sorry you've been feeling so crappy, but I have to give you big kudos for getting back into the swing of things. It's definitely tough to go back to a routine after being so sick. Good luck!

CJ @CJinKY said...

Glad you're feeling better! It's always good to get back to a normal routine...just don't do too much too fast.

Angela said...

Hooray for being back on the wagon! Three weeks is a long time to be sick, I'm sorry you went through that. Ease yourself back into your exercise, don't over do it! Be gentle with your body as you get your strength and energy back. Really looking forward to next week's post to see how you've done!

I'm glad hubby got you that Hydracoach! Let me know how you like it! I'm still doing things the old fashioned way. :P

Good for you for getting back on the wagon and congrats again for winning the Gruve! I'm still debating whether or not I want to order one. Hrmm!
