Today is DAY 13

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

I'm so stuffed up today. Still coughing up a lung. But I think the pain that I've been in for the past few days might be passed. I sure hope so. I can deal with a cold, but not with the pain I was in.

I need to find a way to get moving again.

I'm just under the two week mark. The scale has hardly moved, but I'm not giving up. I promised myself 12 weeks.

Today I am working. I need to be at the office at 8:30 this morning. I'm not sure how long the day will be. I know we are going to Weyburn, so it'll be at least until early afternoon. I can take Lulu for a walk this afternoon. To do that, I'll need to make sure I hydrate enough this morning. Eat enough too so I have the energy to go.

I think that's today's plan. Work. Then take Lulu out for a walk. It'll get me out of the house and into the sunshine. Starting to move again too. I need it. I'm not strong enough to run yet, but at least walking. If I'm on the mend like I'm thinking, it'll clear up my head and lungs. It'll also let me know if I'm strong enough to push for a run on Wednesday.

I'm not giving up. Not this time. I might have to slow down, but nothing's gonna stop me!

    Love your determination. It is good to slow down when you aren't feeling good. Doesn't the sunshine feel wonderful. It can make things look so much brighter.

Get well soon. emoticon emoticon

Nothing wrong with needing to slow down sometimes!!

    Sometimes slowing down, even for a couple days to allow for rest, will show a dramatic change (downward) on the scales. Rest, REAL rest can do wonders for the body, especially for weight loss.

As for the TOM pain, if Midol or Advil doesn't cut it, and you can't handle the pain that's left, go see a doctor about it. There are some good meds to help with the cramping and the pain that can shoot up from the knees right up to the collar bone and all points in between. Be nice to yourself during TOM, and that includes not over-indulging in foods that you find get you into trouble, and getting up and moving around. It doesn't have to be a run, even if that's your go-to exercise. Walking, yoga, Pilates, ST (as you mentioned) are good activities to do when you're not feeling up to par.

Just hang in there.
