My Progress

The power of determination

I'm kinda misfiring a lot here on the workouts. I didn't do yoga last night. I worked right through it. I got to bed and fast asleep by 10 last night, but I still couldn't get out of bed for my morning workout. I'm having some severe sleep issues. I should not be needing as much sleep as I'm getting and it still feels like not enough. I really can't imagine I'm still knocked back from the strep seeing as I've been symptom free for almost a week and on antibiotics for more than that.

Regardless, I'm determined to have a good weigh-in as evidenced by my extremely disciplined tracking, planning and follow-through on eating. I've been on point with that all week and feel absolutely no inkling that cart will sway me this evening. I will not be denied. Will I work out tonight? I don't know. I really want to, but given my track record this week I honestly don't know. I owe it to myself, though because it's just retarded to be working so hard on the nutrition side and be so neglectful on the activity side. So, here's to getting back on the horse. Er... elliptical.

I second Carlos. Not to mention, you've been off that horse for a while now so it's going to take time to rebuild that routine. Don't knock yourself, keep givin her and shit will fall back into place :)

Sounds like you're really just struggling with fatigue. I have been that way too. Fortunately for me I teach classes so working out isn't always an OPTION. And I've found that when I workout I really do feel more energized and awake...give it a try. See if it helps!!

I hope your not posting doesn't mean anything sinister ... :)
Are you ok? Sleeping? Feeling any better?

Wow, I just found your site. That's awesome! Keep up the good work.

I'd say it's probably the strep. Even when we're symptom free, infection takes a LOT out of us, and our bodies can take awhile to recover.

Good luck!
