I usually like to live a pretty active lifestyle. I tend to go to the gym 3 times a week, every single week. My routine at the gym varies, but it always includes at least 25 minutes of cardio and at least 35 minutes of strength/weight training. Since becoming sick with these headaches in the beginning of last month, my gym routine has been suffering severely. It was difficult to work out with the headache and on days I didn’t have that bad of a headache, I was afraid to push myself and make it worse. I thought by now I would be 100% and back to my regular gym routine.
Well. Surprise. My gym time is still suffering and I feel like I need my gym schedule. I get cranky and irritable without going to the gym. Since I still do have mild headaches and I just got back from California last week, I am still going to doctors appointments I had made a long while ago. But, I think that the doctors appointments will come to an end soon because it may just be a combination of blocked sinus passages and a deviated septum…hopefully.
There is a plus side readers! My best friend and I decided to do Giveit100! Of course because we are insanely competitive with each other, we chose to do push-ups for 100 days…yes real push-ups, off of the knees and everything. Naturally I started as soon as I got back from California, making today a full week (yes 7 days). I try to always get at least 10 in, but push for 20. My arms are incredibly sore and I feel that the more days I continue with this routine, the harder the push-ups are going to get.
