Spring Bootcamp No More

Saturday, May 05, 2012

I meant to post this blog yesterday, but was way too tired after my long day, so it's a day late instead.

I went to the doctor on Friday to get a perscription for physio which I was meant to get a week ago and when she asked me how my wrist was doing I said that I struggled with exercise that had me leaning on my arms.
I then basically got told off for being a bit over-ambitious. The way things are I might never be able to do that kind of exercise, so I gotta stop my bootcamp programme as there are just too many exercises I can't do. I can still run, walk and cycle, but I have to be very careful with strength training and yoga is pretty much completely out of the picture. Can't say I'm happy about it, but I've got to make the most of what I can do.

I also had that interview for the internship and it turned out it wasn't quite what I imagined it to be. I'd be working 10/11 hour days with a 2 hour commute each way, so healthy living would be completely out of the window. I don't care what you say about using every opportunity - I'd have to choose between getting 8 hours of sleep and having time to wash, so there's no way I'd be going for a run every morning. I would lose weight from running around all day and not having time to eat, but it wouldn't be in a healthy manner.
But then again, it's in television... I hear people would kill to get that kind of opportunity? It's a really tough choice and I'm glad I've got till Monday to decide.
It would probably be good for me to have something to do and not have the time to mope around and be miserable (though I don't do that a lot anymore, anyway), but just thinking about how shattered I was yesterday, will I be able to handle that kind of pressure five days a week? Urrrgh, decisions, decisions!!

    Hi girl, I also work from 8am to 5pm and a 2 hour commute in a small company. Your fitness goals dont necessarily have to go out the window, i have to remind myself to use my lunch hour wisely, i always make sure i dont skip lunch, i eat for 15 minutes and i walk for another 15minutes. i sneak in seating exercises at work. my friend when life gives you lemons make lemonade. my work is far from ideal. so keep at it, dont quit, before you know it you have adapted
