I guess this is some of what it is all about. Each person has their own path to follow and each person makes their own path. Right now my path is uphill and the ground under my feet is unstable. I am gaining. I am making poor choices in the evenings and on weekends. I know what is going on and I am working to correct it.
Elimination of some of the stress will happen within the next several weeks. Refocusing my energy towards eating right will begin sooner than that. And getting back to the gym will begin tomorrow. Tomorrow morning in fact. Which brings me to what happened to me this weekend.
All bright eyed and bushy tailed I went out Saturday for a run. HA HA. I have not run since Turkey Day. 500 yards in my breathing was labored and I was struggling. I slowed to a walk to regain composure and started to run again. 300 more yards or so and I realized what was happening. I was having an asthma attack. I slowed to a walk and controlled my breathing for the remainder of my time out. 1.58 miles total. I was hoping run, but the walk was good and I am sore.
So the lesson is, you lose so much of what you gained when you do not maintain. I did not mean for it to rhyme but... Maybe MizFit can use it sometime.
So tune in tomorrow to see if I made it to the gym first thing in the morning.
