Goodbye 2010.  Hello 2011.  I’m not a supporter of New Years Resolutions, really.  I make a resolution when I see fit.

Speaking of fit, I know I’ve been gone a while but here I am.  The end of summer 2010 brought a tremendous amount of stress, some emotional eating, some “screw it” attitude.  Then October brought me a herniated disc.  Hello PAIN!!

So the stress is gone.  The back is healed.  I’m ready and rearing to go.  Isn’t that what “they” say?

My super awesome husband ordered in EA Sport Active 2 on the playstation3 for us.  My EA Sports Active id is angelasue79 and I’d love to connect with you!  The box arrived this evening and I wasted no time getting started.  I signed up for the 9 week challenge and completed workout 1 tonight.  Due to my back injury I am keeping it on the “easy” level here for a while and I am going to play it by ear as far as ramping up the workout goes.  The absolute last thing I want to do is re-injure my back.  So I am not going to pressure myself too much but I am going to do the recommended workouts on the recommended days and also supplement that with my YMCA workouts as well.

Oh so I’m back up to 188 pounds.  This is a bit of an UGH but it’s still an overall loss of 19 and I can’t see how that is disappointing at all.  I’m staying positive and getting back on track.

Just for the record, I didn’t do anything stupid to earn my herniated disc.  I was standing still and I sneezed.  Sneeze cautiously, my friends… sneeze cautiously.

How are you doing with your weight loss goals and WHAT are you doing to achieve your goals?  Remember to set short-term goals to keep yourself focused now.

    Hey Nicole, thanks for stopping by to show your support! Back injuries are pretty awful. You should bring Cinnamonster out to some group classes and we can work on him. :)

  5. Sorry you hurt your back like that. People laugh at my squirrel sneezes but sneezing can be dangerous! So you are up weight wise, you know what dietary steps to take and what to do. You can do it!
