I'm only human, you know!

As you all know or at least I have talked about it - you may not know, I've been dealing with adrenal fatigue.  It is hard to deal with.  Some days I felt like I couldn't get off the couch.  I've taken more than one nap per day on some days and finally I am feeling a bit better.  I have good days and I have some not so good days.

During all this, I've had to change the way I eat, the way I work out and not only did my butt get bigger, but my body fat percentage has gone up.  I'm not happy about either of these things, but I have been given the green light to up my workouts.  I've mostly been doing light workouts, yoga and walking.  So, I'm REALLY ready to move it up a level.  I've tried this in the past and had to go back to the lighter workouts and let me tell you that really sucks the life right out of me!

So, just to keep things fun, I have written all the workouts I have on a piece of paper and put them in a basket.  I'm going to draw out a workout each day and do that one.  Then I don't have to think about it and i will know which workout will be the best for me to begin when I finally get released.  (I've been told that it can take up to one year to fully recover)  I'm doing the Tracey Anderson leg workout every day and need 30 mins of cardio to go along with it.  My poor body is SORE!

I've also been doing the Missouri Fit Club's March Madness challenge and Tuesday's are a doozy!  I feel that one every week.  All I can say is it hurts to move!!  This is a good thing for me, it's been a while since I've felt like that! Saturday is my favorite day of the challenge,  Silly Saturday!  This includes fun games you used to play as a kid, or just fun with the kids and family.  Things such as a good game of HORSE, freeze tag, bike riding, baseball or a good hike.  When we get back to what we consider fun, it doesn’t feel like a workout, but we get the benefit of the exercise!

I remember playing wiffle ball with the kids and one particular time that we were out at a friend’s house playing the kids against the adults.  The boys all thought they had this one in the bag, they were surprised that the mom’s had some game!  However, at my second time at bat, I was running the bases and stepped in a hole and twisted my ankle.  I saw the bottom of my foot and it swelled up instantly and I was just sure that I had broken it.  I was rushed off to the ER, but luckily (or not), it wasn’t broken, just a bad sprain.  I had to wear an air cast and be on crutches for a while, but what fun we had!!  

So, I am trying to get back into the swing of things.  This week is a good eating challenge week as well.  I'm doing green smoothies, salads and green juices, whole foods!  It's how I should eat everyday, but I usually don't!  I"m only human, you know!
