Bruised But Not Broken
Friday, May 25, 2012
As I listen to one of my favorite songs by Joss Stone, my title blog. Today I call my physicians office to make an appointment for Tuesday, but after informing them of my concern they told me that I need to be seen today. Well after arriving the doctors office and being taken a room. Of course, the first thing is to step on the
well I haven't done this since my last visit. I had gain 10 pounds
, but I'm not to upset about it, because I was up since 4 pm the following day and worked my 12 hour night shift and my body was extremely swollen by this time and I was only able to get a 45 minute nap in before heading off to the doctors off. Not only that but my blood pressure was over the top. Well my doctor has completely changed my blood pressure meds and added a diuretic. At that point I felt totally defeated, but not ready to give up on myself. I am temporary bruised, but I'm not broken yet. I have been given the another chance to get it together and I will, because I know I have the inner strength to do so. I do not want to end up with kidney failure, or any amputations. I want to live life to the fullest. So, as I was soaking
from my doctors visit on my ride home. I stop and made some not so good food choices. Well, as of tomorrow I will be back on the living wagon and I will start my day with a 5k. I will get back to my fitness minute level like I had done so early on my weight journey. Yes, it it excessive to others (2-3hrs) 6 days a week, but it works for me and I enjoy the time that I exercising 90% of the time. I'm going to get back into
and fine another belly dance class that fits my schedule, sign up for a additional fitness classes at the gym (after cruise), fine a boxing class, participate in a mud race. However, most important is getting back to what help me to get under 300 pounds and that's good nutrition. When November rolls around this year I will not be 200 pounds. I am strong and worth being the best I can be, plus I'm worth it. Keep It Moving! Too Keep On Losing!
