Delay, postpone, wait…..all words I do not like. I really wish I was a patient person, it’s something I seriously need to work on. There are some situations I can easily have patience with. Then there are days like Thursday, which really truly just tick me off. Get ready for a little TMI. Just a couple of hours after posting about being cleared from the doctor to workout I started bleeding…a lot…and it wouldn’t stop. Ok it wasn’t that bad, but it sure seemed like it at the time! I stood there thinking “this is not happening!” I went the whole six weeks with no issues and now this?! Right when I’ve been cleared to workout?! “No, this is NOT HAPPENING!!!” Then I started to panic. I wasn’t sure how normal this was so I had my doctor paged. I mean I didn’t just have a baby, I had a hysterectomy! And a hysterectomy is supposed to stop this issue! I swear it seemed like an eternity before she called me back. I was told it was normal, to take it easy over the weekend, and if it didn’t stop to have the on call doctor paged. Ok, so at least it’s nothing serious, but having to wait another 4 days? That may seem like nothing, but when you haven’t worked out in 4 months 4 days is a lot.
I won’t lie to you, I self soothed with Lifetime movies and chips and hot sauce all weekend. Bad! Bad! Bad! Well I guess it could have been worse. :/
So anyway, today is THE DAY! I woke up this morning reminding myself that I have to get back on track with healthy eating, which means my daily morning trip to Starbucks has to stop. Boo. However, I will treat myself once a week on Fridays. While truly delish and comforting, they have way too much sugar, and I don’t do sugar free coffee. If I’m going to have one, it’s going to be the real thing. I do not deprive.
Ok so I’m super excited about today. I’m going to start my back to fitness plan with running. A friend and I are started the “c25K” running app (couch to 5k). I had worked up to running 3 miles 2 years ago, but I’ll be lucky not to pass out after one lap today. I really want to begin running 5ks and eventually half marathons. I miss running. There is something so free about it. It’s also what helped get most of my weight off 2 years ago. I’ll be posting how it goes tomorrow. She just had a baby and I just had surgery, we’ll be starting back over together! 🙂
Oh snap! I just realized I forgot to weight myself! Since I only do it first thing in the morning before I eat, I’ll have to wait till tomorrow morning. My official weigh in days will be Wednesdays though. That’s the day I always weighed in before so I’ll just stick to what works. 🙂
Stay tuned! 🙂
