Digging Deep and Finding my Strong through a set back

Sunday, April 20, 2014

These 4 months have been tough.

I started the year with remembering some repressed memories that were painful but had an awesome outcome as i got reunited with my little brother.

Had ups and downs through this time my weight has fluctuated up and down right now up. The time it took for the repressed memory took a tool on my body. I was running on adrenaline alot of times as i sorted flashbacks and nightmare. It caused lack of sleep - when i was up i would run (woggle) to sort things out my body finally fought back in March. The respirtory infection that i started the year with never had really left my body and now i have gone through 4 rounds of meds and still i feel awful. Asthma, allergies and respirtory infection combined is tough.

Last week I attempted to walk the Vernonia Half - which my dr. had told me to lay low on but it was tough not to want to try. I did go 8 miles but ended up with two fat blisters and my Asthma kicked up so i pulled myself out which i had promised my friends and family i would listen to my body. I did.

Went shopping and am committed to getting things done with the help of my friends. I feel my strong now i have pull it out.

I will get better through diet and listen to my health coach and therapist.

Needed to see this comparison

    Good choices on pulling out of the race. We MUST listen to the body. Keep the mindset strong!

    I think the coolest thing is WANTing to get back out there and do whatever makes you feel great. Even if your body (respiratory, memory, whatev) is restricting you, at least you're still chompin' at the bit to get back out there! As always, you're such an inspiration.
