But not defeated.
I’ve been absent for a solid two weeks, and it has NOT been fun. I had a migraine that started on July 3 and I didn’t get any REAL relief from until this last Wednesday (July 16)! It was the absolute worst.
It really threw a wrench into my workout and short-term weightloss goals, especially considering I had just purchased five workouts with a personal trainer.
I had a lot of rest days during the last two weeks, but I also pushed myself and had a couple of days where I worked out and probably shouldn’t have. I know I’m not going to get below 220 pounds within July, as I had hoped, but I will just push that goal out a little further and keep working.
I visited two urgent cares, my doctor’s nurse practitioner, the ER twice, and missed a ton of work! Madness.
While I was down, nothing sounded good, nothing tasted good, so I dropped a couple of pounds, but not in the right way, unfortunately.
I had my first real workout yesterday: lat pulls, ball slams, planks on the Bosu, wall sits, leg lifts with resistance.
The ball slams were the worst. For some reason I get dizzy whenever I do squats, it has been happening for a few months now, and I just can’t figure it out. The ball slams were lifting a 12-pound ball over my head and throwing it into the ground as I squatted. The trainer had me stop them because I was dizzy, but if I can get the dizziness figured out, they would be a really good addition to my workout!
It sucks when something like this comes along and tries to throw you off your schedule, but it makes overcoming it so much more satisfying. I’m hoping to get back into the full swing of things starting tonight with BodyPump (which I haven’t done in a couple weeks now, so that should be fun).
Heading to my parents’ lake place tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll get some vitamin D to help me feel better! Have a great weekend!
