Two steps forward, one step back
Thursday, May 23, 2013
For years, I believed that if I couldn't do something perfect every time, I was a failure. 99 successes our of 100 tries just wasn't acceptable. It was very hard to break that habit, but I'm so grateful that I was able to.
What is the point of the statement above? Just that I don't do SparkPeople 100% "right" but that's OK. I do the best I can at any given time. No,.....that's not really true. I don't always to the best I can. If I did I'd be at my goal weight & a lot stronger than I am now. But that's OK. I'm better than I was a couple of years ago when I joined SP.
My asthma has been an issue for the last three months. That is due in part to me putting off going to the doctor for two months, then seeing a different medical person because my doctor was out of town & getting a wrong diagnosis (which I was sure was wrong, but I'm only the patient). When I saw my own doctor, the treatment was much harsher than if I'd seen him in the first place - Prednisone & a nebulizer, but of which cause bad side effects for me, but they do clear up the asthma. Then when I got better, I started getting worse again for almost a week. Why didn't I realize that by leaving all the windows open & enjoying the great breeze, I was also getting all the allergens in the air? Windows are closed & A/C goes on when it gets too hot. I'm much better now.
After checking with the doctor, I decided it was time to get back to some type of exercise. I called Curves this morning to re-instate my membership. I have an appointment today at 4 pm to update my file. I know that starting will be a bit of a challenge, but my inhaler will do the circuit with me. I plan to go on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. Something is better than nothing.
I've added the picute below because it is accurate.
Hope all of you have a wonderful, healthy day!
