It was exactly a month ago that I was diagnosed with the flu and thought I was good to go with sickness for the rest of the winter. Wrong. I’ve been battling this stupid sinus headache and congestion for the past day and a half. I’m just totally wiped of all energy and have been doing the bare minimum to get through the days. I’m actually feeling pretty good right now, still have a headache, but it’s not bad enough for meds and isn’t making my head all “swimmy,” so I’m hoping that means I’m on the upswing!
And now my vent, if you follow me over on Facebook, then you probably already read this, but it had me so heated this morning, I had to post it.
Have to vent a little bit today, I do cardio a lot every day because I love it! I do strength training (different body parts) every day because I love it too! I’m not following a certain training plan, I’m trying to get my dang life back! I’m trying to find my love of fitness and healthy eating again!!! I don’t know how many calories i burn every day and I don’t know how many calories I eat…and I don’t care. I’m doing this because I’m CHANGING my whole life. I’m not trying to be a certain size, be a competitor, be anything but ME. It really upsets me that I come to MY PAGE and talk about how happy I was with a certain workout and I get messages bashing me about how I should stop doing cardio and start doing more of something else. Newsflash: I LOVE THE TREADMILL!!!! I will never NOT do cardio. Ever. It’s my happy place in the morning and pretty much the only time of day I’m alone with my thoughts is in the morning at the gym and if I want to spend hours there, then dang it, I’m freaking going to. This is my life, my page and my journey to find a love for fitness again. The end.
I’m still pretty upset about it, where on earth does ANYONE have the right to tell someone else that they are doing everything “wrong.” Clearly, I’m doing something right, I’ve gone from a size 20 to a size 10 and everything about my life has changed for the better, but some people are jerks and think that their way is the only way.
