I will testify that I am the worse person alive when I am sick. I am super irriatiable, nothing makes me happy when I don't feel well. I am so cranky I don't want anybody around. My daughter will come around just long enough to see if I need anything and then she clears out, bless her sweet heart.
I am so use to caring for others, working hard to make them feel better, its bugs me to no end to be sick. I hate not being able to DO anything!. It just bites actually! I endured a stomach ailment from Wednesday morning till Saturday afternoon. What a nightmare. It hurt to eat anything. And of course working out was a big no no! Too weak anyway. By Thursday night I realized I needed to lighten up alot. People like to make you feel better because they know how uncomfortable it is to be sick. So instead of my usual growl, I was appreciative of the well wishes from friends and family. I noticed by doing this I started to feel better and could move around the house more if nothing else but to walk from end to another.
I am not at a 100% yet but felt well enough this morning to workout for an hour and then later this evening I will attend a Core Fusion class, which checked out last week and liked it. This Core Fusion class is challenging: it uses your body weight to do your workout, a combination of pilates, power yoga, and old fashion gym class excercises. Eating is nearly pain free.
I guess I was just mad because I had made huge strides building my endurance and strength. My cardio minutes were thru the roof, I felt strong and was getting stronger. While I am not back at square one, I can learn how to manage recuperating and getting back to my excercise routine. I know it will be just fine, just need to stop being the old me and start enjoying the new improved me.
