Yes folks, I'm back from the dead! Still a little out of it, but if I spend another day on the couch I'll go CRAZY! It's amazing how much a day of rest can make you feel better. I wish more people would do it. I make it a habit of pushing through sickness and continuing on with my busy schedule, which prolongs my sickness I'm sure...it took everything in me to NOT do something yesterday...at about 10:00am I decided I was going to head down to the gym in my apartment complex and hit the elliptical for a bit, but I talked myself out of then when I stood up from the couch and caught a wicked dizzy spell. Wouldn't be a pretty sight to fall backwards off of the elliptical and crack my head open would it?
Later in the afternoon I seriously contemplated going the 24Lift class because I was feeling better and bummed I had missed my Tuesday training with Chris. But I realized the reason I felt better was because I was doing NOTHING. So back to the couch to catch up on a few weeks of DVRed shows. Good call, I know, because I woke up this morning feeling sooooo much better. :)
The one thing that didn't falter although I wasn't able to get a workout in was my diet. I was FINALLY able to do some grocery shopping and get things that I had been needing through the first week of my program. I know eating well is helping my body heal faster and I'm thankful for that.
I stepped on the scale first thing this morning and saw a number that I haven't seen in awhile. I've dipped below the 180's--I know that may fluctuate by a few pounds depending on how much water I'm retaining, time of the day, yadda-yadda-yadda, but I still can't express how happy that makes me, and how it makes me want to push even harder. AND ON TOP OF THAT--my favorite work pants are a little loose, rather than a little snug. Woot!
Welp, lunch break is over, back to work. Thanks for listening to me rant.
Be well everyone! Until next time...
