Exercise Setback

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I have really had a head of steam rolling and today I am having a procedure in the hospital that will change my life dramatically, but will cause me to have to postpone any aggressive fitness for two weeks and possibly a tad longer. I know that my health and well-being is of utmost importance, BUT...nows heres the thing for me...what if I lose what I have gained. What if a dry spell with no exercise causes me to go backwards or I lose my stamina? This scares me....what if I have complications and end up with a dramitic surgery and have a 6 to 8 week recuperation?? Well, I have so much on my mind and I KNOW that whatever happens will happen and I will come out of it ready to start the next phase...it is what it is, I guess. Thanks for listening....

    I am praying for a VERY speedy recovery and I hope you know that we are here for you no matter what happens. Even if it takes longer than you think it will, I'm sure you will get back on your feet. Keep lookin up, don't stress it, and relax!

    I have confidence in you! You are a BEAST with your fitness, I know that, but you are also careful with your calories too. You can keep moving, but perhaps not run etc. and that will certainly help. As long as you keep logging in, stay on top of your calories in, and do whatever exercise your doc approves, you will be fine.

    You will get through this!!!! I dont think you will loose your stamina. You have worked so hard and know what it feels like to do good for yourself. Even if you do gain some of your loose back you know how it feels to get it off and i believe you will go right back to what you have been doing!!! Try not to worry to much!

    I have had several set backs in the past and they have knocked me for a loop. Just continue to track your food that way if you do not get in your exercise you will not gain you will only maintain. I injuried my arm in August of last year and it took me until February to come back. In that period of time I stopped everything exercising, counting calories, etc. I gained 17 pounds back in just 6 months. If you have the proper mind set you will be fine. If you listen to the doctor you will be back up and moving in no time.
