Monday morning answers

Monday, August 26, 2013

Within 30 minutes of waking up this morning three things happened that said you are in trouble it is not motivation. I had a tooth ache that went from right top jaw to to my ear. My coffee was so nasty that one sip made me violently ill and i could not chew dry toast enough to swallow it. Last night was an up down toss and turn night. I kept saying you have really pushed to hard this time. About a week ago started this over tired feeling like everything was an effort. But I dont like to miss training days. I actually on most days enjoy exercise very much. I thought maybe this a bought of depression coming on sense I suffer from it but dont take any medicine for it. Last Thursday I spent the day in bed for what i believe is was an anxiety headache. Then yesterday the pits of hell as i was so exhausted and my head screaming at me. I am not one that usually says I need help or support. I set out to change my life and have understood since the beginning of this that I had to push myself hard to achieve what i want to accomplish. But like i have said before sometimes you just have to force yourself to do it.

Any way back to this morning and the three things. The toothache not such a big deal they happen, however, Where this tooth ache was I dont have a tooth. you must have a tooth for it to hurt and I have a top denture plate. When the coffee set did not ease my nausea only made it worst and the dry toast tasted like chewing rubber something was wrong and it was not depression. So I called the husband and told him i am going to the emergency room. I cant take this. and well here is what all this is.

A very severe sinus infection that has drained so much into my chest and now into my stomach that my body just said oh you should have listened. When the doctor walked into the room He said man you look exhausted. Yes i rolled my eyes at that. He went back over the last week with me and said that the training helped in one way that it kept the body sweating out but that in another way it opened my chest up for the congestion. The anxiety headache was not that at all it was the beginning of the onset but I just didnt read the symptoms right. He said your body is physically exhausted from all you are doing to it and now you have to do what the rest of us already do REST for a few days. He said I dont mean Rest 8 hrs a night I mean no training I said really .

He said i will let you continue the pool exercising every other day for the week but absolutly no jogging and if you keep on like you are doing then you are going to seriously hurt what you are trying so very hard to save. So for the next week we are on rest or well active rest. I will take a couple of days and try to get this sinus thing under control but then i will just start a walk.

You know Spark people is the greatest place . When i posted my blog yesterday looking for motivation, i never thought that there would be so many kind people out there. I really appreciate all your comments and well wishes. I dont feel like I havent done anything because I know i have done a lot but it is exhausting at times, but this time it was illness that was exhausting . Thank you all for coming to my aid in a time of need I really mean that. hope all have a great spark day !!!!

    Oh, what a relief Darlene!!! I'm so glad there was a physical answer to what you were struggling through. This just goes to show how strong you really are. I don't think you should ever doubt your motivation. Your motivation about put you in the hospital! LOL

    So take the dr. seriously. Rest, please. And enjoy your pool time. In a few weeks you'll back to your jogging, determined, and sassy self.

    Pool exercise is awesome!!! I'm a total water bug - I get in water and hate, hate, hate getting out. It's so peaceful to me - even in the rough waves of the ocean.

    I am so glad that you have an answer now to what was going on! It's so frustrating to be going through the physical, mental, and emotional frustration and not know where it's coming from.

    Good luck following the doctor's orders! Did he mention anything to you about certain foods to be eating or avoiding right now too? If you're body is run down and needs rest it might also need some extra nutrients to help repair itself. Some home-made fruit smoothies might help - loaded with natural fruit sugars and carbs, and protein in the milk, plus, they're delicious!

    Hope you feel better soon and get lots of rest! emoticon

    I am glad you went to the doctor and found out what is wrong. Heal quickly and get back training, but enjoy your pool time.
