I went to the Y again today and I did another 2 hours. I was so tired yesterday but when I woke up this morning the spaghetti legs were so much better. I am tired but in a good way and I so want to get back to where I was. It is hard to not push the exercise when I have slid so far backwards.
I have had blood clots after surgery and randomly for the past five years or so and I have to be on blood thinners. I can't really afford to relax and rest. I have to get moving as quickly as I can so that I don't end up with more. I have been lucky so far, but I can't count on luck forever. I want to get in better shape and this medical stuff throwing a monkey wrench in the works is frustrating. It always seems as though when I start making progress I end up in the hospital.
I am not quitting this time though. Through it all I have not lost my motivation. I have been wanting almost aching to go during the times when I couldn't. In the past I have lost my motivation when something like this has happened. It sounds strange but I am proud of myself for not letting this stop me.
