I’m still feeling the effects of the infusion from last Friday. And, I’m going again tomorrow. I really don’t know that I’m up for this. But, the doctor wants to give me the best chance of success for my week at the Biggest Loser Resort. So, that means doing everything I can to get ready. I had thought that meant exercising extra to prepare. He thinks it means doing detox treatments and thyroid tests to make sure my system can actually lose the weight. I know he’s right, but wow – this detox is harder than the exercise.
But, if he is right, my body will actually start to use the
thyroid hormone, I’ll have more energy, and I’ll finally be able to lose the
weight like a ‘normal’ person. It seems
like a dream. But, right now, it’s so
hard. I’m exhausted, my stomach is
upset, and my face is breaking out like a teenager. All of these are classic symptoms of detox,
so at least I know the plan is working.
I just hope it keeps working.
So, even though I know I won’t be able to exercise much this
week, I still took today to recover from yesterday, and to prepare for
tomorrow. I hate giving up my workouts,
but I know that this is the best thing I can do to be ready. I want my body to be healthy. That’s what this is all about.
The best part of the day today was lying in the hyperbaric
chamber and resting. It felt so good to
lie still and take some time to just recover.
It was a long day at work, and I really needed it. Tomorrow is going to be another long day and
I want to be ready.
