Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Week 15

Posted by Edward Ernest | Feb 27, 2018 | Anxiety, Body Image, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | 0 |

It’s the middle of winter, and I’m still dumb enough to run outside every day. I bundle up with one long sleeve shirt, three hoodies, two layers of socks, underwear, long underwear, and jogging pants. Oh, plus gloves and a winter hat. I just need to keep it going, and I can’t stand treadmills or the feeling that I’m not going anywhere.

This applies to all aspects of my life. Even when I’m driving, and I’m sitting in traffic, I know that I just need to move and I’ll find an alternate route, even though that route will most likely take me longer to where I’m going compared to just waiting for traffic to clear. I just need to keep moving. Is that impatience? Boredom? Maybe I just like scenery? Or is it me trying show off how fast I can run these days?

Hello Ladies! I can run 2 kilometers in under ten minutes, walk circles in elevators just to get my extra steps in on my Fitbit, watch horror films, have anxiety issues, quite messy and talk to my family way too much by text and phone all day.

I’m a keeper!!!!

But let’s get back to how fast I can run. According to my Fitbit Charge 2, I began my health journey with a cardio fitness level of 37, which is in the average range. Yes, ladies, I was average once……ONCE! But not anymore! As of right now, my cardio level is at 51 according to my Fitbit Charge 2, and I have no idea how it’s calculated, and I don’t care. I’m not just average anymore. I’m not even good or very good. I’m beyond those categories. I’m now EXCELLENT!!!!

This is why the Fitbit is the best thing ever. It’s giving me positive feedback about my hard work without being the super dominating authoritative figure of a personal trainer whom I would hate with all my heart. I don’t like being told to do ten more reps when I have nothing left in my tank and risk injury in doing so. I’ve done things my way and now I know I can do it by myself. If I can do it, you can do it too.

Does this make me a control freak? You are goddamn right it does. But aren’t we all these days. I mean, we can’t even watch TV like we once did. Everything needs to be tailor-made to fit our schedule now, so I won’t be kicking myself about being a control freak when it’s just the way life is these days.

With that said, all in all, it’s been a great week, and things are moving forward still. I’m gonna go watch Netflix and Chill by myself because I have no social life anymore.
