yesterday felt like a big failure.
i had been awake overnight with stabbing pain in my back and shoulder blade and had to take pain killers.
after a month of exercising and moving so much better because of weight loss i had been on a role.
this week i decided to do a walking program toward 5k. got a pedometer and ticking the achieved boxes i realize i'm half way to the goal already.
i got thrown by the inclusion of rest days and cross train days.
then yesterday after an hour treading water with mum and sister i visited another sister and went the park for a walk.
hey both good exercise considering i was experiencing discomfort.
but somehow i felt i let myself down and failed to achieve my walking program.
after a nights sleep with pain killers i have woken to realize i am no failure
but just will be doing my 2 mile walk today.
because flexibility is important and yesterday was a family day with different exercise
and now today is free for me to walk the 2 miles with my dogs.
when i get down i excuse my urge to eat more so i realize a potential stumbling block.
which now i know i can be prepared for too.
swimming pool and walking was far more than i was achieving a month ago so hey
i'm not a failure after all.
just learning to enjoy the moment and wait to achieve the goal the next day.
the pain in my shoulder blade has improved with a rest from upper body strength exercise
i think i just tweeked something being over enthusiastic.
