Keeping it Together

 

Coming up on the one year mark of my last knee surgery, August 26th, to be exact, and I am still maintaining my weight at 190 pounds.

 

If someone were to ask me how I am accomplishing this monumental task, I would throw up my hands and say, “I have no idea”.

 

I am going through a stressful time right now, probably one of the most stressful periods of my life.  I would call it a sustained stress, meaning not event specific, but a stress that is a daily part of your life until such time as you can make changes and work it out.  I am thankful for the  emotional support I get at home, however, I am the person ultimately responsible for getting things back on track with my business.  Historically, I turn to food for comfort.  I also use the gym as a stress reliever.  I am working out most days, however, I am not able to work out at the level of intensity that I am used to because I am still dealing with knee pain.  Also, as I mentioned in my last blog, I am being cautioned not to use my right knee because of complications from the surgery.  Talk about stress, I may be looking at a third surgery on my knee.  The reality of it is that I may never be able to exercise again the way I used to if they are not able to get my knee functioning as it should.

 

Because of the possibility of being on a limited exercise program, possibly for the rest of my life, you can imagine how important it is, now more than ever, to be diligent about my eating habits.  I still keep a daily record of what I eat and the amount of calories I consume each day.  And that continues to be a big part of my road to success.    

 

I am not completely sure why I am continuing to do well in maintaining my weight through all the stress I’m currently going through, but my strategy and my focus remain the same. . . just take it one day at a time, eating clean, exercising and thinking positively.

 

I would appreciate your feedback and your suggestions about how you have dealt with the issue of healthy eating when you are stressed.
