I woke up in pain today. You would think that 5 days into this damned antibiotic treatment that this wouldn't happen but nope. It wasn't as extreme as before but it hurt nonetheless and now I have a bad cough to go along with this. I shouldn't be coming down with anything right? Since I am on antibiotics and what not?? Feeling the back/side of my neck where the swollen lymph nodes are...one still feels rather large and unchanged. The other seems to have disappeared. I don't really know what to make of it honestly. If after the antibiotics...the lump remains...I guess I go in to find out what is actually going on. It's scary to think of one of the possibilities...but I am going to remain positive.

I was proud of myself that I was actually able to workout last night. I almost didn't but then I just thought...why not? It's just yoga and you benefit so much from doing Yoga so just do it. I am also thinking of adding in another workout on my days off since I am not as active as I should be...as much as I don't care for Jillian Michaels...I remember enjoying her Banish Fat Boost Your Metabolism workout. It's more like kickboxing so yeah...or maybe I will do the P90X Kenpo. We shall see if I am even able to get that far lol! As of right now, I just want to get in the habit of working out in the morning and at night.

Daily Summary
*P90X3: Triometrics is very difficult for me...just like Plyometrics...I suppose it will take more time getting used to it. I mean this is only the second time I have done this workout. I have to stop frequently which bothers me but I am listening to my body so that's a good thing.

*Sigh* Yay for a gain. -__- I know the reason why...it's not only that the antibiotics are making me hungry...it's also that I am getting closer to that time of the month...so double whammy. I have picked up working out again today and I plan on starting my evening workout as well. Now to get my eating back on track and all should be good...I hope.

Even though I am definitely not happy about this gain, I am not going to let it defeat me. I can push through this and come out stronger in the end.

Good luck to everyone in reaching their goals! <3

Daily Summary
*P90X3: Eccentric Upper is really hard for me because I don't have very good upper body strength. I am sure as time goes on and I continue to workout, this will improve. As of right now though, it's so hard. I can't go as deep in pushups and some I can't do without my knees being on the ground. My goal is to do at least 5 pushups with my knees up of each type of pushup.

I slept in pretty late for me...have a horrible cough and my neck is sore. So...I basically have an infection in the lymph nodes on the side/back of my neck. Dr prescribed some antibiotics and some pain killers. The lumps are still very much there but the prescription strength Motrin has been helping a lot with the pain. While I feel like I could be able to workout again, I am still going to take the next few days to continue healing and getting better. I think that is in my best interest.

The biggest problem I am having with these antibiotics is that they are making me very hungry and it's extremely difficult to control. I am trying my best but it is very very hard. I am planning on trying to walk a lot more so I can not only reach my goal of 10,000 steps but also because I am not able to actually workout so it's a way to keep active.

I was not able to workout yesterday...and probably not today either. It's driving me crazy and I keep having these mini panic attacks. Clearly, there is something unhealthy going on with me mentally. My anxiety has been up because of it and I feel restless. I have an appointment with my Dr today so hopefully I can hurry up and get back to working out. My eating hasn't been too great either so I need to work on that but that doesn't seem to effect me as much as the not being able to workout.

A great part of it is due to the fact that I have struggled with being the fat girl for so long and I am terrified to gain it all back. It's such a debilitating fear. I keep trying to tell myself that it will be okay, that I can pick back up once my neck is fixed but then I am terrified of the consequences of not working out. I hate this. I know what is right but this irrationality won't go away.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: I tried to meditate while pulling and I failed miserably. Its been hard to focus on other things other than that strong need to go workout. @_@

I really need to get better about journaling. Anyhow, I woke up today...my neck hurts pretty bad. There are these two small, hard bumps on the back of my neck, a couple inches from my left ear...the whole area is super tender, tingling and painful to touch. If it continues, I am going to call the advice nurse to see if I should go into an Urgent Care or something. I am going to try and workout still despite this pain. I swear...if it's not one thing it's another. @_@

Today has been a rather emotional day for me yet I haven't fully discovered why that is. I feel so muddled up internally so I think that at some point today, I need to meditate and try to shed some light on this feeling. Maybe it is because it's getting close to that time of the month but I would like to explore this fully before just slapping that label on it. I mean, people don't feel the way they do for no reason...there is always a reason behind it whether they realize it or not.

My motivation is running low but that is because of the pain. I keep telling myself that I can push through this though...that I can't just give up. I think that will become my mantra for today. Well I suppose I should go so I can workout and then call the advice nurse.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Had to stop my pulling a few minutes before time because of coughing. I am so done with this coughing. @_@
