Renewed Wellness Commitment

My wellness was not derailed by the holidays. In fact, I did pretty well during the eating holidays with keeping on track with my calories. It was brought to a stop by the car accident and the change in my schedule due to a new job as a cashier working nights and weekends. The car accident caused me to not being able to exercise like I had been, and my new schedule had me eating at all sorts of different hours of the day. And then we went on vacation for ten days to Disney World.

okay, this is actually in Harry Potter at Universal!

There was lots of walking, and lots of eating. There was, also, some days where I didn't drink coffee due some vertigo. I don't like to think about that part to much. On the whole, I would say that my food consumption was mostly on the healthy side. A little heavier than I was used to, but I did take my new little blender and had my shakes (when I remembered).

That said, between the accident in early November and February 4th I gained 15 pounds. I wasn't happy about it, but I knew that my body had changed. I had already decided I was going to start over, but that clinched it. I did a two day Shakeology cleanse, and lost 7 pounds. I, also, started my favorite program, Body Gospel, over again. And realized that my range of motion is very, very limited. I am working through that with the help of my physical therapist. Until then I do what I can modified and without the bands. I AM back on track to the healthier me I deserve to be.


  1. Good for you getting back on track. My surgery through me off big time, so I know from where you are coming. Vertigo is not fun and does kind of put a halt to things as well. The job is good, but it does change things, eh. I'm loving the Slim in 6, but this past week came to a grinding halt as well.

    Love the pictures!
