WOW! This first 4 weeks has not only FLOWN BY, but I have really not been very “on track”. Unfortunately, life has thrown me a few doozies recently, including a severe bout with pitting edema that made my weight jump up 15# in one week! Talk about scary! I had to go back on medication for it(had been off for about 16 months with very few problems). I am pretty much back to where I was before, but it caused a lot of fatigue, as well as leg pain and heaviness that hindered any good cardio workouts for over a week.
And this past week, as many of you know, I was constantly begging for votes in the Fitness magazine “Face of Fitness” contest, week 4 of 10. I ended the Reader’s Choice portion for the week in 13th Place. So I didn’t win the contest, but 13 out of 179, is not too shabby:)
I had planned on writing out this week’s workouts over the weekend, but this weekend was one small disaster after another, culminating with my washing machine going out:( A trip driving into town to go to the laundromat was NOT in the schedule! Now this week I will be hunting down a new one that will not cost me an arm and a leg AND will be here before mid-November! UGH! Why do they NOT keep these things in stock:(
So…I am looking for my positives today:) And even with all the snags in my schedule, the positives are still plentiful! The 3 F’s always come to mind when I think of things I am thankful for. Family. Friends. and Fitness. So Thank You all for giving me something to be thankful for every day. Because the only way to top off those 3 things is by getting to inspire and motivate my family and friends THROUGH fitness:)
Until next time, take control and make your life GREAT!!!
