Progress or lack of
Monday, July 21, 2014
Has there been progress? Not in the weight loss side. But on the health side there has been a tremendous amount of progress. I went from playing in the snow.
To bedridden on March 5 with tubes coming out of me from places I don't even want to think about.
To walking the hospital floor with a few less tubes and a walker.
To hiking 9 miles in the mountains on a hard trail.
I think that is a lot of progress in 4 months. There are still things I can't do. I can't do things that put pressure on my breast plate - the area they cracked me open. This includes push ups, triceps dips, planks and a lot of yoga poses. It takes time to heal from heart surgery. It is hard not to be impatient, I want to be healed now. My patience is wearing thin at times. But on those days when I am feeling low because of lack of progress I look back at how far I have come since March 5. Heck, I'm still alive, that is a big thing. I know the weight will come off, it is just hard when it comes off in ounces instead of pounds. I know I will meet my goals I just have to be patient.
Today was a good day until my treadmill broke, I guess I will have to start going to the gym again to use their treadmill
It is hot and stinky in there.
I've started back to Turbo Jam, still walking outside when the weather agrees with me. I don't handle the hot and humid like I use to.
I'm going to walking in place while watching baseball.
Have a great evening!
