Is It Ok To Not Exercise?

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Let me make myself clear, is it OK to not exercise for right now?

Today was my day off, a slow day, a day of resting. I didn't have to work, I didn't have to run anywhere, I had a Burn Notice marathon to watch (the new season starts tonight!), I could basically just do whatever I wanted and relax. So given all of this information, how did my day go? To put it was absolutely horrible. I had all of these plans, I was so looking forwards to finally getting a real day off, and I was in too much pain to enjoy any of it. Lengthy and unhindered sigh. I am calling my doc in the morning, hopefully they can get me in sooner than a month from now. I really wish that I had just sucked it up and called earlier.

I have been in a lot of pain lately and you tack that onto the fatigue and fogginess that comes with my thyroid issues and basically I have been having trouble even doing my little tiny workouts. So I am contemplating turning all of the focus to my eating and only exercising when I can, for the time being.

Yes, I know that I need to exercise, but I just can't right now. It is not laziness, I am not making excuses, I just can't. Even walking is slow and painful. I don't want to have surgery again, but, at this point, if it will help, I am more than ready.

Sorry to ramble again, today was just a really awful day and I am desperately hoping that it is not this bad for work tomorrow. I cannot lose another job to this. emoticon

    I hope you made that phone call! So sorry you are feeling bad; those thyroid issues do indeed affect everything, also.
