This is what I wrote yesterday. It still stands....or really lies asleep on the floor like a pet rock.pet rock.jpg
Day 0- Preparation
Just weeks before the next knee replacement. Now is the time for discipline. Now is the time to commit to becoming the healthiest me possible.
On the plus side:
*I've been exercising hard for the last 6 weeks.
*I was eating almost primal for 3 weeks, then I tried Atkins, I don't know why. That's positive because I'm done experimenting. I've visited both extremes of the protein lifestyle ; strict paleo and atkins, the only thing that worked is Primal via this site.
*My fridge and pantry are ready
*I've read through a gosh awful lot of beginners material, downloaded some, cut and pasted some to have a hard copy of basic facts.
On the negative side:
* I had my left knee replaced 3 months ago and am going to have my right knee done in 6 weeks...my beloved running days are really over. I'm still physically recovering from surgery #1 and fatigue and mess with my plans.
* Husband and I are going on vacation. We are both doing Primal but I still am going to have to plan not to fail.
* Here is the biggest negative...I SUCK AT GOAL SETTING AND FOLLOW THRU. That said, the double knee replacement is just the motivation I need. A friend told me yesterday that I'm so stubborn that God has to do something real dramatic to get my attention. I'd like to put off the surgery but I can't, my knee caps are crumbling, I have no cartilage or meniscus. I started barefoot chi running too late. The surgeries have me so angry, sad, frustrated, that they might just be what I need to follow through.
Week One Plan: Exercise 4x, Walk 20 minutes a day and bycycle 3x.
Dring 64 oz of water aday.
