The Swing of It

Working in a Sauna Suit

I’ve questioned myself numerous times on this journey. It’s a very lonely road I’ve decided to travel and sometimes the loneliness gets overwhelming. That’s when I start to question myself.

What happened in the last few weeks has happened many times before, I heal one injury only to sustain another. I strained my thoracic muscle. My back hurt, even when I sat down, and I had to take a whole week off exercising. But every Monday I see my massage therapist, Cindy Dearcos, and she was able to help. Then every other Wednesday is Dr. Andrew Yellen’s day. He’s my shrink, our sessions challenge me, and we always have a lot to talk about. I had my fourth post op with my orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Steven W. Meier, I’ve been green lit to do anything I want. In a month, I dropped 14lbs. Some days, I feel like I’ve gotten the hang of all this.

After a week off exercise, I started back training with a sauna suit. But by the time the weekend came, I was binging on food. You don’t think food can be addictive but I love it. It’s a snowball effect though. I’ve realized that if I don’t have a goal to get me through the week, I’m gonna want to cheat on my diet. This week, if I stick to my regimen, I’m going to Hurricane Harbor.
