Day 16 of my 30 day Challenge - Set Backs
Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Ugh! I got a horrible head cold this last week that has now settled itself into my Lungs. I have the lungs of an 80 year old chain smoker already from a bad bout of Pneumonia in my early 20's, so I am going everything I can to keep it from turning into pneumonia.
When I am sick I don't want to eat, and when I don't eat I gain weight. I will be back at the gym Tomorrow, and I am just trying to maintain at this point.
It's a testament to how far I have come that I am not freaking out right now. I realize that with this setback, that nothing short of a miraculous shift in my body would result in losing the 10lbs I set as my goal, but I will end the 30 day challenge knowing that I did what I could and I will celebrate the success I achieve.
I am still frustrated and super bummed out, but I am finally finding a balance between that all or nothing mentality that made me overweight and unhealthy in the first place. I am celebrating this unexpected success that I didn't even know I needed.
