I haven’t really made an effort food wise this week, but I haven’t over eaten. I have kept up my 7,000 step goal each day. I have had some increased aching this week, which I imagine is because I’m being a hell of a lot more active as I’m also running around preparing stuff for the business and getting the house in order. Yet I still managed to put weight on*. I have read about women putting on weight after a hysterectomy, which I thought would be down to a lot of inactivity for a while, but I was very inactive before my operation due to ill health, so I didn’t think it would really apply to me if I’m honest. I also thought that it was more a menopause thing, and with keeping my ovaries, that that wouldn’t be an issue yet? I was very inactive for a while though, some days not even managing 400 steps, so I imagine it is all that catching up with me. Dawn French managed to lose lots of weight after her hysterectomy though, so it is doable, I just need to persevere. Ah! Just read she lost the weight BEFORE her surgery! But she is managing to keep it off, so that’s a good sign. I need to read up on health after hysterectomy. I’ll write another post with what I find.
*It appears my scales are dodgy. I weighed 17 stone 13lbs yesterday and 17 stone 8lbs today. My Husband said he’s getting weird readings too, so time to invest in some new scales! I think I’ll buy some old fashioned mechanical ones this time!
Steps this week:
I want to up my target to 10,000 steps daily this week, but my Husband said I shouldn’t, especially where I have had a lot of aches and pains this week. I, at the very least want to hit 8,000 per day. I dunno, I’ll see how it goes…
As mentioned in last weeks post, I was thinking about starting up a new Instagram account, just to keep a check on my food intake. I haven’t eaten much fruit or veg since my operation, I’ve just been living on crap really. So I did a big shop and got it delivered Saturday night with lots of fruit and veggies.
