MICHELE BROCK'S HEALTH & FITNESS CHALLENGE JOURNAL
Saturday, August 18, 2012
AFTER READING, I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's been seven (7) days since my last "CHALLENGE" related post!
I am still ON FIRE and more FOCUSED than I appear to be! However, there are several "FACTS", not excuses, that are TEMPORARY ROADBLOCKS, but, even as I pen this journal, my wheels are turning in the direction of OVERCOMING my challenges so that ultimately I can meet my personal health and fitness goals.
In the mean time, anyone taking this challenge should keep moving progressively forward.
The thing that is "temporarily" hindering me the most in the area of EXERCISE is an illness whose breakthrough I feel I am getting closer to.
I am finally seeing a specialist on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 to confirm whether or not I have Lymphedema.
Lymphedema - MayoClinic.com
You can GOOGLE IMAGES for "Lymphedema" and it will instantly give you a visual of what I am experiencing. As a result, I am only able to wear pool side type flip flops. No shoes. No gymshoes. It's even difficult to do my treadmill barefoot. However, I AM GETTING CLOSE TO MY BREAKTHROUGH! Thus, I AM KEEPING MY EYE ON THE PRIZE! My spirit is willing, but, my flesh is temporarily weak, but, I am in the midst of correcting all of that!
The thing that is "temporarily" hindering me the most in the area of DIET is being unemployed. My homebased business isn't slow, it has just about ceased to exist. Thus, it is difficult for me to maintain a strict and healthy diet when I AM THE ONLY ONE IN THE HOUSE HEALTH CONSCIOUS! My family will eat "some" of my health food, but, not consistently and NEVER in place of the bad stuff. The most consistent thing that I can do is drink bottles of water.
I've been feverishly seeking employment, but, for some reason, I've not had any success. For those of you who know me or been connected to me for awhile know that I have aspirations to go to law school. In fact, I am "scheduled" to take the LSAT in October in hopes of getting accepted into JOHN MARSHALL LAW SCHOOL by Spring 2013. However, a possible opportunity surfaced yesterday that just might be the answer to my employment and career prayers. I won't disclose until all is confirmed which "should" be by the end of business Monday, August 20, 2012.
Meanwhile, I'm watching my food intake as much as I possibly can and I'm getting out and walking as often as I can. I will push myself to do more.
I'M STILL IN THE GAME! I'M JUST TEMPORARILY ON THE SIDELINES REGROUPING AND REPLENISHING BEFORE JUMPING BACK OUT THERE AND PICKING UP WHERE I LEFT OFF AND INCREASING MY MOMENTUM!
TRANSFORMATION 2012 IS WELL ON THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
