Today, I had to get some things out of the way before going to the gym. After I finished getting things done, I was in a bit of pain. My leg was hurting and it wasn't just mild pain. It's not a pulled muscle. I started getting this pain last week but the pain usually subsides after a while.
My sister asked me if I wanted to go to the gym and I told her my leg hurts but I want to wait a while to see if the pain goes away BUT my sister didn't care at all. She said she got ready and wanted go right this minute before it got packed.
I live with my family and there's only one car so....no gym for me today because she left without me.
All I wanted was to wait 20 minutes to see if I would be able to handle going or not. My leg doesn't even hurt anymore either!
My sister has suffered from leg pain and swelling and I didn't treat her the way she treated me today.
I am aware that it's good to rest your body and give it a chance to heal but as I mentioned, it's not a pulled muscle. There is no guarantee that resting it today will prevent it from hurting tomorrow. It's my body and if I want to workout, it's up to me but now I don't even have the choice.
I also found out I'm Anemic today. Gee, my body sure likes to attack me from the inside out, doesn't it? Hypothyroidism, PCOS, Anmeia. I am just incredibly grateful it's not anything worse and that I am able to treat these conditions.
Hopefully, my body will stop "attacking" and start behaving.
