frustrated and depressed =(

Monday, January 21, 2008

okay so i was in california until the 17th..i started off really well making smart choices and exercising but as time went on because i was scared i hurt myself i stopped lifting and my eating habits weren't really really good (weren't super bad either- could have been a lot worse) but i figure okay no big deal, i can fix everything when i get home..i got home the 17th and the 18th had a prior commitment but i woke up on the 19th ready to do my cardio after work but at work i was really sick with a severe headache and i felt weak and queasy so i said let me rest, sunday will start no excuses and then sunday- i woke up with a 102.4 degree fever, went to urgent care found out i have the flu and a touch of bronchitis! i was in bed all day yesterday and haven't been able to get off the couch much today without feeling dizzy. i've been sweating and shivering at the same time...so this delays my working out even more and i feel it my whole body feels and looks like pure crap- the muscle definition in my arms are slowly disappearing and it's depressing the hell out of me =( i hope i feel good soon because i need to get back to where i was for my own sanity...i hate being sick! i hate the way my body looks! ughhh

    When you decide to starting making changing to your lifestyle, often it is accompanied with a sudden illness. I suspect this is two things, 1) Are alter ego trying to discourage us from doing what is right, 2) The exercise releases trapped toxins that suddenly become active and induce illness.

    Two approaches work for me; 1) Work through the mental blockage for 7 days, do not allow yourself to not commit to the exercise and eating well during these 7 days. After 7 days it should be easier. 2) Reduce the intensity of the exercise to something manageable but still makes you break a sweat.

    These two things got me through my first week or so.
