Oops started December a little late
Monday, December 06, 2010
I haven't worked out in 13 (count em) 13 days. That's the longest hiatus I've had since April when I started this journey. I almost forgot what the gym looked like. But it's not because I've been busy, I've been mad at my plateau (which by the way is still happening), or I'm being too lazy. No, it's because I've been SICK and not the sick where it knocks you out and you lie in bed all day, no I get the kind of functional but I know I can't breath if I try to work out and every time I bend over I feel like somebody punched me in the face, yes, the dreaded sinus infection and bronchitis. I've had each of them, but not EVER at the same time, until this past week. It started Thanksgiving night and progressively has been kicking me in the A$$.
I gave up and went to the doctor, on anbitiocs, but still have that lingering tickle.
So today, I can't stand it any more. I have to work out. Light cardio should be okay. Get on the elliptical. My feet hurt, take the orthotics out, they continue to hurt. Okay, fine, be that way. To the bike I go, so I survive that. So I can finally put in my fitness tracker 46 minutes of cardio. It's not near what I have done in the past, but dangit, I got it done.
Of course we won't talk about the fact that I'm coughing up a lung again (at least I waited until I left the gym). Anyway I will beat this. Cardio this week, back to the weights next week. Should be interesting to see how much strength I've lost.
So it's December 6. I've promised myself I would bust this plateau this month. I can do this, Christmas and all. I only have one meal that could cause me some issues that I have to worry about because we don't have any parties scheduled. This can be done. If I can break the 170s this month, I can start January with great momentum.
Onward!!! I really could use a nap now...
