Health & School

Friday, October 14, 2011

Well, I'm still here, plugging away. Unfortunately, I'm not really making any progress in the weight department. But over the course of the summer I have been true to my strength training and at least I have built muscle and strength. That is pleasing.
I'm over the cough that I had for a good 3 months. I've since moved on to having issues with my heart and chest pain again (tho supposedly they are unrelated). Now the pain is bundled with near constant nausea and body shakes. I have an appointment on Tuesday.

In any case, I'm pleased to be back in school to work toward my dreams, which is very exciting to say the least! And I'm also pleased to say that I have done a fairly decent job of fitting regular workouts in around my school and the kids' school schedules. I make it to the gym for strength training twice most weeks, but always at least once. My knee is still giving me problems as well, even tho I haven't attempted running since it began back in July. So, instead, I have been playing tennis with a friend usually twice a week at the gym. :) (We're both basically beginners so it's not too intense for my knee.) Before that I was biking and I will probably still do that to fill in when we can't do tennis. it's wonderful to be outside.

Anyway, I'm continuing to work and trying to be good about spacing my meals properly, which is probably my biggest obstacle in the food dept since I tend to eat the proper amount of calories a day anyway.

    It is good to hear that you are still "plugging away." It is tough to do with the busy-ness of life!!

    I hope that the doctor can figure out what is going on with you health wise. I will be praying for you and your health.

    Keep up the good work....playing tennis, getting in some strength training, proper eating, balancing schedules.

    Best wishes always......Bill
