The rest part is not what is hard. I mean how hard is it to do nothing. I am a little fearful that I am going to get out of my workout habit again and it will just be that much harder to get back into the swing of things. And as much as I want to workout, I am a little scared that this will all happen again. How do I know that the first workout back wont result in Rhabdo and Ill get another hospital stay!!! That's my biggest aversion to the no workout thing, that and the inability to not get out some of this energy that is pent up and overflowing.
Another fun time about Rhabdo is the constant monitoring of my own pee. Yes, I know, over sharing and gross, but my day has become consumed with watching my urine output. How much? Am I dehydrated? Its just nasty and constant because I have to drink gallons and gallons of water which means potty breaks every 5-10 minutes. All those trips to the toilet might equal a mile in a days time!
I have gotten back on my diet full force this week, also in anticipation of the weight gain that is liable to come from all this rest. I'm not so hungry because of all this water drinking. I'm back to my Paleo Diet. This was a diet that I was not ready to give up on yet. I was actually liking the program and as my cousin mentioned before she was thinking about every single thing that she put in her mouth, and its true. Since I'm not planning my workouts Ill just get to over plan my food.
Napkin after the morning smoothie....Can you imagine how the teeth looked?
This morning I had a fruit smoothie, I go through spells with these, I get in a routine and drink them for weeks and then one day I run late and just get out of the habit. But I do love them very much. My smoothie this morning was Blackberry, Blueberry, Rasberry, and Strawberry mixed with some Naked Juice. It has no dairy! That's big with the Paleo diet. The best part is it takes me about 3 hours to drink it. I like mine to melt a little and I just sip for hours.
I have a notebook dedicated to this cause and I write down everything I think of that needs to be discussed with the group. Our first team meeting is tonight so I am glad to get some of this off my mind and off my plate and delegate to some others. I have a good team, at least they have been in the past, and I know we can be a success.
I actually have a full afternoon/night planned so hopefully I wont miss the gym. Ill just wave as I pass tonight.
