First time feeling discouraged…

Completely Overdue for An Update…

I apologize for being MIA recently. As it happens I got the flu right as I was coming back from Florida and proceeded to be completely knocked out in the days that followed. Today is the first day that I am actually feeling more like myself (minus some coughing that is just refusing to completely go away.)

I feel absolutely awful that I have not been able to work out since before going away on vacation. On Sunday morning I couldn’t take it anymore, and even though I wasn’t feeling all that great, Mike wanted to go to the gym so I figured I’d go with him. I mean I’d be fine as long as I focused on weights and not cardio, right? WRONG. I’m not sure if it was the lack of exercise over the course of 2 weeks, the illness, or both, but I had no energy at all. Weights I was able to manage with no issue before now had me panting after a minute, and once I started panting, I found it harder to breathe, and once it became harder to breathe, I started coughing and just could not stop. I think I managed to last about 15 minutes before I just threw in the towel.

What challenges have I faced in the past or want to face now that I can work towards overcoming?

No One’s Perfect…Buying Motivation & Prepping for June

The Lack of a Workout

I wish I could have come on to write about the awesome, active weekend I had. Instead, I am upset that I missed my Saturday session. I just wasn’t feeling well this Saturday, and on top of that, I had a to-do list that was about a foot-long of things I needed to get done before we leave next Saturday for Florida. I know I shouldn’t be making excuses, but there was no way I was going to have enough energy to get my workout in and complete everything on my list (and I am still nowhere near finished!) So my 9th session was rescheduled to Monday and my 10th will remain on Wednesday. It’ll be a tough and busy week ahead, but as long as I plan and prioritize correctly, everything will get done just in time for Saturday, and then hello sunshine for 9 beautiful days! 🙂
