Not a setback, a slowdown.

Thursday, October 03, 2013

So I was really concerned a few weeks ago about my workouts suddenly backsliding. I couldn't breathe, my legs were cramping way too easily. I was getting scared. Suddenly, the night after my last terrible workout, BAM! My nose started running and did not stop for a week, at which point it solidified and completely blocked it up, and my chest became ridiculously congested and I couldn't sleep because I was coughing all. the. time. For about another 2 weeks. Finally, things are starting to feel normal for about the last week.


Seriously, at this point, my gym membership is a fat tax for this month. I have good intentions, but I just put it off. Not unrelated, my stress level is through the roof!

I was so so scared about gaining weight back that I decided not to get on a scale until today. I figured one shock was enough, and we would deal with it from there.

I was pleasantly surprised! I LOST 6.5 lbs!!! It isn't the 2+lbs a week that I wanted to lose, but it's still DOWN and not UP!

I guess hocking lougies and not being able to breathe is a great weight loss plan.

But now it's time to get back to healthy. Tomorrow I work 9am-6:30pm, but my mom will have my boys, so I can probably sneak off to the gym for 45 minutes before picking them up! Saturday we are planning to canoe and hike, so that alone is a lot of activity, but I still am going to try to get to the gym in the morning!!

    It's always hard to get back into your gym routine after some time off, whether you chose it or it was forced on you by illness! But, you have a good plan to get yourself going again, trust that you can and WILL stick to it!
