A coach, a cheerleader, a personal trainer... any of these would do. I need to exercise again! Running after the kids isn't enough, expecailly now that the weather has turned cold and wet. Work has become exhausting becuase I don't do enough at home. I know what I need to do, I just have to get started.
I was feeling so good when I had started my exercise again. I was doing light aerobics for 1/2 hour, or standing pilates for 20 minutes followed by ab work. I stopped a few weeks before Thanksgiving to get things ready. I got into cleaning the house, my OCD took over, and things snowballed from there. That was ok, I feel really good about
the house now... the playroom and office especially. BUT, I didn't make time to exercise. This week I took things easy, and I haven't moved much at all. And I'm really paying for it now.
I deserve to relax and do things I enjoy, right? Yes, but only after my workout! I keep making excuses... I do only have so much time in a day... and the kids have field trips, docotr's appointments, groceries, Hallowe'en to get ready, etc.... Oh, but since last night... My hands and feet ache so much it makes me cry. My whole body is sore, burning, and buzzing. My fatigue has hit me big time, even the malic acid doesn't seem to help. So now that I feel this crappy I have to move. I feel like I have to climb Mt Everest right now. I KNOW I'll feel better in a few days if only I can get MOVING! How to start?
Well, I thought. I have a whole cheerleading section right here! lol. All I have to do is make myself accountable. But now that I think of it, I won't have time until next week... No, not excuses (well, they are real at least). ok, ok, maybe some pilates tonight after the kids are in bed? That means no scrapping time, but that's been my problem this week. Too much scrapping time at the computer!
Thanks for the uplift. I feel better just venting a bit. And knowing I HAVE to move now that I've told you!
Wishing you a wonderful day.
Waiting for appointment with rheumy (March 2009) to get an official dx. waiting, waiting, waiting....
Taking malic acid/magnesium combo, what a life saver! and amitriptyline
