Broken Toe, Bursitis and Belly Buttons

Monday, January 01, 2018

Last year started with severe bursitis in my right hip and me deciding to stay at home and try to get things healed up. It took months but the pain finally subsided a bit. During the year I managed to lose 15 pounds and help Gary to lose 15 also. But then the rowing and lifting weights caused the bursitis to move up to my elbow so had to slow down the exercise and rely on walking and a switch to body weight strength training. But my body wasn't satisfied with that so I broke my toe and not in a good, easy-heal way...of course, why would that ever happen, go figure. So I was forced to sit with my foot up and the weight easily reappeared leaving me really depressed and not really giving a diddilli about anything. But the sitting and trying to heal, which took over 4 months and we're not sure it's totally good yet, did give my elbow time to heal up and that pain is gone!

So now we are onto another attempt at getting this weight and my health under control. It seems this time a lot of the weight has settled into my belly. So this will be a little different approach but nothing too different. I'm kind of gun shy as it seems the last 10 years every time I've lost 40 pounds I've managed to have a major health crisis and promptly put it all back on. So the challenge this year is to try a totally different approach to the big picture. LISS will replace HIIT and a bigger emphasis will be placed on mental challenges. So lets get this party started!!!

    Wishing you a much better 2018! I agree with LISS, much less inflammatory exercise.
    I get up as regular as possible and do some light movement so not sitting so much. Makes me feel better too. Lots of online videos to exercise to so never bored.
    Feel better soon!
