So, you know by now that I skipped out last Monday. I feel like such a failure! I didn’t do any working out from 1/10 to 1/16. Not once. This went on for so long, that it cumulated in something I haven’t done in a year or more.
I ate processed, gluten-filled crapola cookies. I found out that they are like a drug. Rather than my usual, “ew, yuck, tastes like it was made in a lab” reaction, it tasted good. Like, you know that feeling when you’re at an Italian restaurant and you just can’t stop dipping the bread, and rolling the pasta into your mouth over and over?
Yea, just like that. It was 5 or 6 cookies, which is a LOT for me at this point in my life. (10 or 12 would have been fine a few years ago.)
This, however, is something new: I got sick. Yea, it’s possible that it was a mental thing, but I truly felt ill, and woke up a few times in the night to fix that, so on top of feeling pain, I didn’t sleep. Karma is such a bitch!
So on Thursday, I did Zumba, the whole workout out – 20 minutes. And instead of pasta & meatballs for dinner, I tried spaghetti squash and gluten-free, broccoli filled meatballs. And tried to be healthy most of the day. So now, I am back on the horse, but wow, failure really hurts!
I completely injured my knee on Friday too, but I was determined to keep it going. HOWEVER, I just had a friend recently end up in the hospital for overdoing it. Taking into consideration my age and the lag in working, while I can’t stop now, I HAVE to be careful. Working is something I can do, but maybe I need to work out. I don’t mind stretched tendons, but bone pain means I have to rethink and carefully plan my workouts, until I’m strong enough to do MORE.
Thanks to the Mamavation Sistas who are helping me through this…
