The Battle is approaching
Monday, October 02, 2017
Yesterday I put on the first coat of paint on a large shed. Today I am hurting. For a few days now my right calf has been tight. When painting it felt fine but now its really tight. The right side of my back is also tight. Im thinking its from stretching on the ladder plus its my dominant side so I used it more. I used a brush for the first coat because of its texture. My hand was even cramping up. Second coat is going on with a roller!
Sitting here I was thinking about how sore I am and how out of shape I am. I started thinking back to when I first started on here (Sept 2007). I remember that I started out slow. Simple exercises of 2 sets of 12. After that whenever I tried to start back up I would over do it. I did too much because I was thinking that that would make up for lost time. Doing this I hurt myself and would be so tired that I wouldnt do anything for a few days later. Sometimes not at all.
I need to step back and go one step at a time instead of running and trying to get skip over steps to get to the goal quicker. According to the charts Im obese so Im going to look at exercises that obese people should do and shouldnt do. Squats and lunges are on the no-no list which is fine for me because they kill my knees. Even with doing the right posture.
Ive had knee issues since I was around 12. I fell on both of them while skating and they were bruised for over a month. After that, when ever I would squat down to do something I would feel a sharp pin run through them. They would also get really tight if I went up a large set of stairs. Lastly I also cant kneel on them if on a hard surface. It feel like pinched nerves. Back in 06 I took a water aerobics class and the sharp pin sensation is no more. Still cant kneel down but I can walk up stairs without the tightness.
This week is planning week so that my body can rest and so that I can get in the right head space. Doing the right exercise plan +PLUS+ eating clean and healthy =EQUALS= reaching my goals. I need to fight this doubt, this PCOS, and my old self.
