The Long Road Back

I am taking the long way back from being sick it seems. Haven't been that ill with upper respirtory stuff in about 8 years it was awful. Went to my doctors got meds and after resting for about week I finally feel human again and ready to resume my workouts.

Got up felt fine on Sunday so I put in a hard 3 mile workout on my treadmill with my walk run program lots of walking thanks to being sick.

Then Monday I was trying to do my run/walk and my lower back and hamstrings started really bothering me so I just ended up walking two miles. I tried to lift weights but that didn't work out well either.

Tuesday was better I went to my park walked the 8 laps came home raked for 20 minutes called it a day, Then Today I went to the park and I was able to jog some so I did my 8 laps a little faster came home stretched so I can be able to keep walking if I don't stretch out after working out now I get so stiff its just terrible.

Been working on my abs and watching my eating as well. I am hanging in at 159:) trying to get to maintenance this month we will see how that goes...

Still dreading my husbands layoff next month trying to position ourselves so we can survive both emotionally and financially. If you believe in prayer please pray for us that we will come out alright from this situation...


  1. Sending big hugs your way Susan!

    Some things to think of if you are trying to cut costs:

    do you need cell phones? or maybe you can downsize your plan to save money?

    go to basic cable?

    cancel newspaper subscriptions?

    I still wish your grocery store prices weren't so expensive!

  2. Wowwwwwww 3 miles on a treadmill! You're a goddess. ;) You're doin' great Susan..keep going!

    (Don't forget the "thrift store squats" when you're looking at that lower shelf of


  3. You poor thing, being so sick! Glad you are finally feeling better. :)
