A little overworked

Thursday, November 29, 2012

My body is in revolt. I tried too hard to quick to pick up and make up for a week of slacking exercise during J's hospital visit. It's screaming, "IM OVERWORKED!!! I can't do this! Don't try Don't make me!" So, I'm not. I'm taking it easy. I'm working out still, but I'm taking it easier for a few days.

I hit this wall yesterday. I did my workout and it was harder than hard to do. And then, my blood sugar dropped. I wound up eating a lot yesterday. I was totally on track nutritionally... it was all healthy, just about 1800 calories instead of 1300. So, not the end of the world, by any stretch... but it was the wake up call I needed to take it easy the rest of the week.

I'm keeping on. I did 45 min of cardio today. But, I didn't wear my HRM and I don't care how many calories I burned. I just did 45 min, instead of 500 calories. And I think that will be my plan for tomorrow as well. Just take it easy. Not stress about the number of calories... just focus on doing the exercise.

I can lose these last few pounds. But, i'm not going to hurt myself or break myself in the process.

In other news, Amelia has an ear infection. I took her in for the second of her baby flu shots (they get two, instead of one) and they do a quick check to make sure that the shot won't make the little one sick. But, they found an ear infection. They still have her the shot, but what we thought was teething is actually an ear infection. good times.

And good healing thoughts to the little one!

    Oh, poor baby! Ear infections are definitely no fun--and neither are shots! I hate that the little ones have to get 2 for the flu, plus all the other shots they get at that age.

Your post today reminds me that I am just a little bothered by people whenever they say that exercise helps you deal with stress, or sickness, or whatever better. That may be true--and I have to admit that when I'm feeling well enough to exercise despite having a cold or something, it sometimes seems like I get well faster--but we also need to remember that our bodies sometimes need a break. Dealing with all that stuff from day to day and having to stress about it isn't always worth it.
