I almost forgot what day I was on since it’s been so long since I’ve shredded! I took Friday off last week, skipped Saturday and Sunday like I have been (but did some walking at Hoffman’s Playland and Chuck-E-Cheese on Sunday) and decided to skip yesterday, too…I’m not even sure why I skipped yesterday aside from the fact that I just wasn’t in the mood to work out. I really wish I had worked out yesterday…I’m feeling guilty and that I’ve cheated myself somehow.
I was going to do my pilates today since I woke up with a kink in my neck, but decided that I really need to get my heart rate up and burn some calories instead and I was hoping that my neck didn’t hamper that. Thankfully, it didn’t bother me much. I really tried to push myself today, even though it was super hard today after having 4 days off. I thought I was going to have to quit during the oblique twists/skaters portion. I started wheezing really bad and couldn’t catch my breath. I’ve been having some trouble breathing, mostly in the evenings, even when I’m just sitting around on the couch. I think I might have a mild form of asthma or something. Asthma runs in my family (my mom didn’t develop it until her 40’s – I’m not quite 30) and I’ve always had trouble breathing during long periods of cardio, especially during running. That’s probably why I detested Phys Ed in High School. If it keeps up, I think I might make an appointment with my doctor to see what’s up. It’s slightly disconcerting when you are breathing normally and then feel like you can’t get a deep breath. It’s livable now, despite that fact that Darling Hubby hates my complaining about it. I don’t think I complain too much…just when it’s been going on for a while.
Hopefully tomorrow will go better. I’m definintely going to be better this week about working out…no more excuses and no taking Friday off just because it’s Friday! lol A friend of mine was just told by her doctor that she needs more exercise and that she should exercise any day that she eats! lol Guess I should either start working out more than 4 days a week or stop eating on the days I don’t workout! lol I can probably manage 5 days a week of working out…Maybe that will be my goal for next week…no phoning it in, as Jillian says!
