I know…it should be Entry 10 right?
I’m not feeling like I deserve to call it entry 10. I was going strong with the at home strength training workout challenge but then I got a tattoo and had to wait to get my sweat on, then when I felt I could get back to burning calories I started having really bad headaches. Pain almost to the extent of migraine. In 2011 I was diagnosed hypertensive (high blood pressure) and was having these headaches a lot until put on a medication and started working out, the headaches disappeared immediately.
Why is it back?
For almost a week I have been battling my head and staying out of the gym.
Today it stops. Headache or not I am pushing on. Today started with a 20 minute meditation, quick beginners yoga then to the gym for 30 minute, 310 calorie burning, elliptical and 10 minute, 80 calorie burning stationary bike ride. Also, I am taking a break from coffee for now.
I now only have a month to reach my first goal which is losing one size by the end of August. We are going to Hawaii for a vacation and I want to be one size less for the trip.
So, I will work out. Even when it’s 90+ degrees and 95% humidity (typical August weather in Japan), even with a headache or any other issues that decide to challenge me.
My biggest challenge of all is that I only really have my husband helping to push and motivate me…other than myself. I’ve asked friends to help but they haven’t really been and I suppose it isn’t fair to ask them to ride me. I need to do it myself.
