Feeling like the NASA rover, Spirit, I started January triumphant.
Ah, that quest for perfection, that ever burning flame that drives us onward to test the perimeters of our well being/existence. Especially after lolling in holiday bliss. I was energized and fortified, with a couple of extra pounds to propel me with extra fire power. Running in the mountains of our upstate home, coming home and working out religiously and tending to the perfect diet another example of perfect technical prowess. The first week of work back in the city routine went spectacularly. Until like the rover abruptly malfunctioning, a glitch? I developed laryngitis. I knew I hadn’t been taking my vitamins and not enough vegetables over the holidays and was now compensating with a strict regime to stave off the dreaded cold or flu signs flashing ahead. The immune system was showing weakness, I stopped the exercise to fortify immunity. A week later, feeling better, my voice sounding less like broken violin strings, I dashed ahead. A fantastic workout, never better, I’m back, the “Victor” I think! The boom lowered later that night while trying to get up for dinner … I couldn’t. The next day, like the rover I was put to sleep until the malfunction was corrected. Well there goes 2 perfectly good weeks of dreams and aspirations! Week 3 I was sure I would redeem myself until I realized a bronchial infection kicked in and I’m down for the count for another week. Good intentions pave the road to……trying to hone in on the root of the problem.
Proper rest, no more burning the midnight oil, I have to stop working by 8pm. Instead of working until 11pm and then wondering why I can’t fall asleep. Two layers of clothes, it’s ferocious cold out there and because I insist on walking everywhere, I have to dress appropriately. Eat more vegetables, fruits and enough protein. If you want to lose weight and stay healthy you need your nutrients therefore vegetables, fruit and lean protein, every day every meal plus vitamins no ifs and or buts! Or Opportunity will take over where Spirit left off!
