Struggling but still alive

Happy Friday Yall!!!!

Ok, I aint going to lie… this 3rd Phase of LiveFit has been a challenge to me for sure! The end of the 1st week I was very sick, had to miss a couple days of work and barley moved off the couch. After I did start back at the gym, I couldn’t go full balls to the walls. I worked myself back up to the intense level and have been doing great this past week.


I pulled (or strained or whatever) a muscle in my shoulder! It happened earlier this week and I have been working through the pain since then. Last night it hit me though and I couldn’t take it anymore. I laid on the couch with a heating pad and some pain relievers (I may or may not have shed some tears). After a couple rounds of heat, I called it a night and let me tell ya, that was the 1st night all week that I had decent sleep. BUT I woke up this morning and the soreness is back… and today is shoulder day at the gym!

I decided to ask my trainer what should I do (even though I already knew what she would say, just had to hear it from her) and she said for me to take it easy and take a week off from working my upper body and to get a massage. I like the massage part, the other part kind of scares the CRAP out of me!!!

Today for LiveFit I am supposed to work on shoulders and cardio, tomorrow is pure cardio, Sunday is rest, Monday is legs and then Tuesday I start back with some upper body… Well, I am going to tweak it just a bit and forgo shoulders today and pick it back up on Tuesday. That will give my shoulder 4 days of rest; I pray to God that is enough!!

Despite the sickness and now the pulled muscle, I am still kicking and fighting. I think it says a LOT that I haven’t given up even though there have been many opportunities for me too. I will finish this program and I will do it to the best of my ability, I mean why start something if you aren’t going to finish it?!

I hope you have a HAPPY and HEALTHY Friday!!!
