sick month, dialing down and waiting for spring

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Patience isn't my strong suit, and January and so far the month of February has been an exercise in patience for me. I have been sick on and off all year with a cold virus/vs allergies, tore my scar tissue in my left breast post op and had to back off my workouts. My mindset has been ok I can't wait until I am healed from surgery , which is about the end of March and it is HOT here so I can start working out hard again and start taking the weight off again! So goals have been to get sleep, dial down my intensity, get green veggies in because when it is winter here even in Florida I don't want to eat them and when I don't feel well with congestion for some reason I want to eat CRAP that only makes congestion worse, like bread and milk and chocolate. OH YEAH THAT WILL HELP A LOT! DUH. And to get some exercise in and to know what is enough exercise each day. Some days I couldn't even make myself get out of the house, my friend Peccy would call and ask how I was and I would say " I CAN'T GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, I AM TOO COLD' She would say ' WELL YOU AREN'T LAZY YOU MUST BE SICK'
That sentence would free me up because I felt like I was being lazy , even though I was sneezing and my ears hurt and I didn't feel well , that sentence from my friend would help me not hate myself. So today was warmer and I got to the gym, I was dizzy and my ears hurt, think that is allergies. Hope it keeps getting warmer and burns the pollen away . I can't wait to get back at kicking my own butt at the gym instead of learning about patience. LOL

    Yeah. hands up if anyone else here deals with bad stuff by eating bad stuff...Hey! Watch out lady, you nearly poked me in the eye! EVERYONE'S HANDS ARE UP! Seriously, patience is a virtue and having it would be so ...virtuous. Did I say that right? Non english speaking here!
    I hope you get better soon and get to work like it's nobody's business! I got all that you've been through ahead of me, so ...nervous now, complaining about patience later. LOL

    I do the same thing. When I have no energy or desire to go to the gym, I try to blame it on me being lazy. We aren't lazy people, so we need to learn to not be so hard on ourselves.

    Hope the ear thing clears up soon, I HATE having the dizzies while @ the gym, which is most days. LOL!
