Stray Dog Revolution
Being sick sucks. There. I said it. And it's true. But I'm now going to focus on being positive, finding the silver lining, and moving forward in good health. Because that's how I roll. :D
I'm basically continuing on with my push-up challenge starting exactly where I left off: at day 10. So today, day 10, I actually was surprised to discover that I could still do 20 push-ups on my toes, then rest for a few seconds, and crank out the last 5, also on my toes. It didn't even feel any harder. So, what's the lesson here?
I often get super stressed out when I'm sick because I'll my best laid plans go haywire. I get behind in my work, and my fitness, and my eating suffers because I don't have the energy to fix good meals. Well, those days are beginning to fall in the category of how I used to react. It's clear that, in the scheme of things, it's not the end of the world. It's about perspective. And the only thing that stress does is make it worse. So from here on out, if I get sick, I'm gonna ride with it. View as a mini-vacation from life. Rest. Recover. Not sweat the small stuff. I mean, not only did my fitness goals not suffer, but my work didn't either. I mean, am I as on top of things as I normally am? No. But I'm still alive. And no one's yelled at me yet. :)
So I'm seeing sickness now as a clear message to me that I need to slow down. Take a little break. And not sweat the small stuff.
See? I always something new from these challenges. This is so fun!!! :D
