The difference a year makes
Tuesday, August 02, 2011
One year ago today I dislocated my shoulder and broke a piece bone off my shoulder humus head almost the size of a baseball. So a year later I no longer own my business, I no longer work a physical job and my career is a whole new world in which I have no experience in. I also gained 35 lbs because I went from a physical job to a desk job. I have experienced depression, lack of motivation, a lack of passion, a lack of energy and a ton of stress. I have developed a bad blood pressure problem which I have never had before and a lot of symptoms that seem to be a possible heart problem. But....
today my heart test were normal. My heart is strong I am just fat and severely out of shape. I have been caffeine free for 10 days and soda free for two days. My eating is better and I am determined to be more active. And GOD has seen my family and I through all of the many trials and have met all of our needs. We should have been bankrupt, without a home but GOD show his grace to us in so many ways. So now it is time to get my big butt off the couch and live life again. So I am getting serious again(pun intended), my health is way too important.
So today after my stress test I;
did 65 minutes of cardio,
did over 15 strength and stretching exercises,
swam 3 laps
the I came home and did 3 hours of yard work.
Even if I do not formally exercise everyday I purpose to be active doing something besides sitting on my couch. So on the 2 year anniversary of my accident, I hope my report will evidence a person who took charge of his life instead of sitting while life past by.
