This past week has rocked and I am proud of myself. With my constant physical, mental and emotional health issues, I have been barely existing and using my only energy for my son, Roger. This week, however, I have concentrated and focused on work, some light housekeeping, and, most impressively, exercise! I feel like I am getting back into the groove of life.
This morning, for exercise, I took my old walk path. Although living in flat Texas, the walking trails in Highland Village are incredibly hilly with “Caution: Steep Hill” signage. It kicked my butt, especially in this horrible heat (even at 9 am). However, I did enjoy the two quick conversations with strangers along my route. One had two adorable pugs (my absolute dream dog that I am highly allergic to….one can still dream). The other was an overheated lady, like myself. I thought to myself, “I love my neighborhood”…and “Although residing in the state of TX, I think I could live here a very long time”. The return walk sucked ass but I made it…what else could I do?
Yesterday, I went to kickboxing with a good friend of mine. It has been a many month hiatus and was glad to have the good company to chat with as I tried to keep my composure while working out. I really did not try that hard to keep my composure – cursing, stopping, heart rate too high. But, again, I made it!
Monday, I weighed myself and was my highest weight in my entire life – including full pregnancy. I know one should not put value in the scale, but it was the motivation I needed (now that I can be motivated, thank you meds)!
