I've not been on Spark for a while though I've logged on every single day. Sadly, all my efforts to get strong and lose weight have backfired. I have been rather ill for the past two weeks because of an autoimmune malady. This is something I've dealt with for a long time but thought this time I had it all under control. Wrong.
I'm not totally sure what set it off but I think it was a matter of the perfect storm. My workouts were getting pretty intense. A long time ago I figured out if I do an intense workout one day the next day I should do a simple yoga routine. Well, I haven't done that because truthfully I LOVE tough workouts and I was getting away with it. Then I ran out of amino acids and stopped taking them thinking I was eating so regularly I didn't need them. They always helped me in the past, why did I think now was different. Then I started a new job and it is intense and I love it. Finally it is my allergy season. Put it all together and I end up down for the count.
Also, during this time I tend to start making poor food choices. I don't even want to get on the scale but I will to get my mind back in the game. I'm finally able to get in some light exercise so I think I'm getting better.
I am going to create a new plan for myself. It probably will be easier to follow and less intense but I must do it. I can't afford in any way to be sick not to mention it is unpleasant to say the least. All I can say is it is more important than ever to create a healthy life style. My life is too enjoyable not to be able to show up to it.
I'm down but not out.
