FROM MISERY BACK TO HAPPINESS

Well yesterday was one of my worst days. The early start and no effective cardio left me feeling cold and tired all day. Couple that with the after-effects of my fall and I was a miserable wreck as I hobbled around all day. Small mercy in that I didnt have to teach but even with the night off at home I was wandering around like a lost soul unsure of what to do with myself.

Things are better today. My knee is still very sore but at least now its only the knee and not the thigh as well. My palm is bruised but my wrist, elbow and shoulder are all ok :-) I'm not limping or hobbling.

I didnt do any training last night nor any cardio this morning or stairs at work. I am planning to do back tonight but it'll be a modified program as I have to do it at home instead of the gym. Then I plan 20 mins high intensity on the ex bike and I'll be happy with that.

Tomorrow is my deadline for Operation 65/74. Circumstances were such that I weighed and measured this morning. I am a hair's breadth within my goal so I'm counting it as a victory and a success. At the end of the day a 1/2 cm or 1/4 of a kilo is just irrelevant when I feel so good about my progress and that is what I want to focus on. So that's another mini-goal achieved and another success to build on. I will be setting myself another mini-goal after Sydney.

Its likely that I wont get a chance to blog again before I fly out as the list of "Things to do before Sydney" is getting longer rather than shorter. I look forward to having a wonderful time away and will blog again early next week. Take care all.

Cheers

Magda

Hiya Magda, just trying to catch up on everyone's blogs so only been able to skim through them all.

I hope you are feeling better after your fall. Nothing worse than having a setback like that but you've obviously not felt sorry for yourself and adjusted your training.

Besides your 'social' hiccups, you sound like you are doing brilliantly with your training. Keep it up and I can't wait to see some photos of your progress.

Take care xx

Hi Magda, hope you are feeling better from your fall. I know what you mean about skipping cardio and feeling worse. I did that on Friday (due to my back) and was hopeless all day. My body missed it big time.
