For those of you who follow my blog will know that I broke my wrist 8 weeks ago and have had it plated and screwed.
They thought at the hospital that the plate had moved which resulted in a CT scan to check but fortunately it is okay and I am going to have to be patient for it to fully heal. Meaning that I will be a splint for at least another 6 weeks.
However I decided enough was enough as I hadn’t been exercising as much as I normally do and I was beginning to feel lethargic and depressed. I have therefore decided to get back into exercise in October and will walk at least 10,000 steps per day and do more if I can to build up my strength. Having decided this last Wednesday when the hospital finally confirmed I didn’t need another op I started to build up to this with 8,000 steps on Thursday and I immediately started to feel better so it is true that exercise helps your mood.
I am now on day 4 of increasing my exercise and had surpassed the 10,000 steps a day every day and feeling that I have a new lease of life.
For anyone who is trying to lose weight exercise is not a must but I have to say that it does make you feel better. I can really only walk at the moment because of my wrist but it has helped my mood and stopped me feeling that I want to pick at snacks.
If you want to know about healthy eating to help you lose weight I would love to help you.
Still can’t get my rings on but getting there and feeling happier and at the gym
