Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | Day 3
I woke up and jumped right into my morning routine. Push ups and sit ups, followed by a walk to work. On my way to work I decided that I’d take my brother to New York. He’d been suffering from an increase of panic attacks due to his low self esteem and I wanted him to see a One Man Show called ‘Career Suicide’ by Chris Gethard (If you haven’t listened to his podcast Beautiful Anonymous, you should…..like right now). I thought, if anything could help my brother, this show might jump start it all.
During a break at work I made the reservations and got the tickets. I felt good about the chances of this scheme working. I’m a schemer. Always have been, always will…..with a penchant for evil plans as I’ve always dreamt about being a bad guy wrestling manager. Please don’t judge me…..thanks 🙂
Now back to my exercise. I did the same thing as the day before. I made excuses to walk places when I could and continued with those weird elevator laps like the day before. I’m sure the security guards watching the cameras are beginning to think I’m strange. Besides that, nothing really special happened at work and then I high tailed it with a walk home.
At home, I put on my sneakers and headed straight for the track. Unlike the day before, my legs didn’t co-operate. They were sore and I only lasted 0.73 km on my run. I was pretty discouraged by it but my legs were telling me no.
Also, I could still feel the soreness around my heart and now I was getting pretty concerned that this wasn’t going to reverse itself. I thought the worst of things for the rest of the night. It was a long night to say the least. However, before I went to bed, I walked 1000 steps in my apartment and did a pathetic 10 push ups and 20 sit up variations again. Another thing health wise, as I mentioned on day one. I’ve been in a constant battle with an issue involving frequent urination over the last 10 years and in the last month, it’s become quite irritating again. So far, with new diet and exercise, it still persists.
Last side note and then I’ll shut up for the day. I deleted all social media apps from my phone today. ALL!! I have a goal and realized that I was wasting too much time looking at other people’s lives and not mine. Do you do this too? Instead of looking at social, I’m going to look at the only media that counts right now and that’s my Fitbit App.
I know I said the above would be my last side note but I’ve started to fear that I’m the most boring person on earth and may become more boring the more I continue. The fear is seeping in and is real. I better talk to someone about this before it derails me completely. Yes, I have issues.
