Okay said I was gonna rest a day but....

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

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.

    Awesome! And I can't think of anything better than being in the pool for a good workout that's gentle but uses a lot of calories. I spent 3 hours doing laps and aquarobics in the pool a few months back, it was my only time spending that much time in the pool as a work out, and I have to say I was exhausted, but I didn't notice it until I got out of the water. Then it was all I could do to have enough strength to walk. So I'm very impressed by the amount of time you're spending at this. It's no small accomplishment! Keep at it! I can hardly wait to see you reach your goals because I'm sure it will be amazing! emoticon emoticon
