Rough Day

It was too. It was one of those days. I woke up this morning with a stabbing pain in my abdomen when I inhaled. I have no idea what that was about but it made me feel slightly queasy. Once I got up, luckily that disappeared (so maybe it was a muscle that needed stretched?) but the slightly sick feeling never went away. I also thought that my legs had survived yesterday's workout but that lasted right up until I bent over to pick something up and those muscles stretched. Whew! Those muscles woke up and went nope, we're tired and sore today. Sorry, not going to cooperate!

For the most part today, I just haven't felt good and could not find the energy to get much of anything done. Then this evening, I started having some bad stomach cramps and that ended me even trying to do anything. I did manage to get a few minor things accomplished today but as far as fitness went, I sure didn't workout today or anything along those lines. The closest I got was fighting with my front door to open because there was a big block of ice behind it.

My water intake was down today, too. I got in 5 full glasses yesterday and today, I'm wrapping up the day with 3. Of course, I also didn't eat super healthy either. It's ok though. I refuse to beat myself up over this. Tomorrow I'm going to get up and I'm going to get my breakfast and my glass of water and I'm going to do my best. Who knows, maybe my legs will even be up to that dvd again. If not, there's always my yoga dvd. I bought it 4 years ago and it's still in the shrinkwrap.


Musings from the Galaxy

I swim almost every day (today will be an exception) and boy do my muscles hurt. Last night I went swimming on my way home from work, I was frustrated and annoyed and I swam hard and fast. And today I am suffering. There are no two ways about it.

The thing I have found, is unlike most things, losing weight, getting healthy, making lifestyle changes is hard. If it was easy everyone in the world would be a size zero.

I have come late to your blog, but the thing that strikes me most, is that you have made the decision. You have decided what you want to do and what you want to achieve and you have made it public. How many people tell you "i tried giving up" after they have started something again?

We all have our ups and downs. Tomorrow will be a grumpy day for me, but Sunday I know I will hit the pool early and just lose myself in the water.

It is brave what you are doing, and I am proud of you for doing it, not just for doing it, but for taking us all along on the journey with you.
