My last blog was about putting in 100% of my effort and dedication, and then I completely ceased to be here. I have been in a lot of pain and could barely get out of the bed. Some nights I didn't go to sleep because of the pain. I was dizzy often and sick always. Just my luck. Every time I get really into this lifestyle change, something pulls me back down.
I was going to continue to post on here throughout that time, but for one, the light really hurt my eyes and secondly, people on these kinds of websites think people want attention when they constantly are sick/hurt and post about it. So I dealt with it in private. How is it that a support website can make you feel unsupported? Story of my life. I still feel crappy but nowhere near as bad as I did the end of July/entire month of August. I decided to just suck it up and do what I can, because I can only get worse sitting on my butt. My pain is mostly in my spine and skull, which sounds risky (and maybe it is), but I feel like I need to take control in some way.
So yesterday, I began working out again. It was just a 32 minute trial cardio workout to make sure I am okay. I completed it (with only two 1 minute breaks). Today I am doing the same workout, plus some arm workouts. Tomorrow will be cardio and back workouts.
- Lose 8 lbs
- Workout 4x a week min.
- Drink at least 6 cups of water (it's not where I need to be, but it is a step up).
- Try new foods.
Already completed one of my goals! I tried kale today. Last night I tried guacamole. :) Branching outtttt.
That's all for today. About to get in some water and go workout. I have a lot of homework to do and shows to watch, haha. (Listening to/kind of watching the show for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders right now as I blog this and do one of my assignments.)
