You might have heard me moaning about feeling poorly for what feels like forever. I have been ignoring tooth ache for about three months which was a big mistake in the last week I have had two hospital trips, two dentist trips, a rather bad infection in my face, six teeth removed and a pretty bad dependency on pain killers. It’s save to say you shouldn’t ignore toothache, I am recovering now, I’m sore from the teeth being removed and my face is still swollen and sore. Worse of all I am trying to come off the pain killers which is leaving me feeling worse than the toothache in the first place. And it all started because I didn’t want one tooth removed I was convinced the tooth would settle down now I have lost six, including two wisdom teeth and have months of work on my teeth ahead of me now. So it’s safe to stay I haven’t been in a very good place to eat clean and exercise, but don’t worry I am almost fully recovered and so desperate to get back into the gym.
Glorious, glorious exercise!
Due to the pain and too many painkillers leaving me so tired I haven’t been to the gym in three weeks, I had my teeth removed last week now and this week I have managed a yoga class and lots of walking but I am absolutely ready now to get back into my full training program starting tomorrow with walking up Snowdon ( if you don’t know it’s a mountain in Wales ). I have a two hour session with my personal trainer on Monday to hopefully get my mind back into it and see what I can do.
So up to getting the teeth removed I was literally eating only cake and ice cream because all I wanted was comfort, after weeks of eating crap I started feeling like crap so the second my teeth were out I went and didn’t a massive food shop only putting healthy food in my trolley.
How yummy does all this look? I have really been focusing on eating well again and have been super proud of myself this week for trying my hardest. This has been the longest break I have had from my fitness plan, and it would be so easy for me to just give up now but I’m not going to, none I have new goals and a new fitness plan I have tried lots of new healthy meals this week and I’m excited for next week and starting my fitness journey again.
You know I have a sweet teeth ( half my problem ) but this week I have been so good, there has only been a couple of treats and I even picked a kids popcorn at the cinema which was more than enough to satisfy me.
Goals for next week
1. Get back to the gym.
2. Try a new gym class.
3. Walk to the top of Snowdon.
4. Keep eating healthy.
5. Don’t give up, you have come to far to give up.
Those glorious feelings!
The last four weeks have been so emotional for me and put a real strain on my body, specially this week when I have been trying to come off so many painkillers. Luckily I haven’t lost my drive or passion for fitness, I know it’s going to take a little time to get back to where I was but I know I can do it and be even better than I was. I’m excited to move forward and get moving again and now I’m getting myself and body ready for Christmas because let’s face it that’s the hardest time of year to keep on plan but I know I can do it.
And a big thank you to all my lovely readers and social media friends that have sent so many kind words and inspiration while I have been poorly, I still can’t believe you read my blog and sure real love to my family, thank you.
