The past few days , good ol’ Meganitis has been reminding me that she is still here. My damn armpits are hurting again. Yup. It’s as wonderful as it sounds. I am really trying to not let this rule my life as It has. There are surely going to be days where I need to listen to my body, but I am just getting back into working out, so I was determined to go last night.
It was a long work out:
1 min of each for 5 rounds, 1 min rest between rounds
Burpee Tire Flips
DB High Plank Rows 7.5 lbs
Goblet Squats 15lb KB
Going into it I was worried about the burpee tire flips. Burpees + Me = No Bueno. My burpees are terrible, I am limited on how I can do them with my knee and my mobility, but I can do a modified version. I managed to do about 3 each round, I found that to be a victory.
The thing I struggled he most with was the DB High Plank Rows. And I was only using 7.5 lbs! UGHHH. Sweet Baby Jesus were my hands killing me. Its a lot of weight to be resting on those dumbbells. I didn’t think I would struggle with it as much as I did, but man was it hard. At one point, I tried to pick my hand up and it just would not go. But I didn’t give up. I was slow but I kept at it.
I think another thing that is affecting me and the Meganitis is the weather. It’s been pretty rainy here and it does a number on me. As I type this , my armpits are throbbing. I can feel my lymph nodes enlarging. I am just praying that I can hold the Meganitis at bay.
Having a chronic illness sucks. Not knowing what it is, sucks worse. I know it could be way worse and by no means am I having a pity party. It just sucks.
Getting into a mental state of mind where I can let go of the illness and just be me, is not easy. It is hard to get in a mindspace that I can be stronger than this and I can’t let it rule my world.
Honestly, today I have felt like I just want to crawl in bed and not move, but its after 10 pm and I am not even in bed yet, lol.
It is a challenging journey that I am on. I can only take it day by day and
Just Keep Swimming !
