On Wednesday, I completed my first workout in about 2 months. I promised myself that if I was going to give it my all and go through an IVF cycle that I would lay off of my typical workouts. I still walked a little, but there was definitely no weight training or intensity involved.
On Tuesday after getting my news, I immediately clung tight to tears, Ryan, my dogs and of course plans for a new workout program. It sounds bizarre that in a time of hurt you could focus on something as “superficial” as a workout program, but I find so much comfort in it.
Before Christmas, I was doing a version of Jamie Eason’s LiveFit program. I basically just stayed on week one for 4+ weeks. I loved it, but at the time I didn’t want to move past week 1 with more cardio and high intensity since I didn’t think it was appropriate for my body at the time. But now, I’m ready to start LIVING LIFE and living for the moment instead of the unknown – the things I can’t control.
I’m ready to do the real LiveFit program now….well, let’s be honest, the real according to most things, but in my true fashion I won’t follow everything.
So back to what IVF taught me about working out.
On Wednesday I did chest and triceps. I pushed myself pretty hard for my first day back, but by the time I got to the narrow pushups I could barely make it through the second set. My arms were shaking so badly. I wanted to just skip that 3rd set. I mean, who would even know, right?
But then something funny happened. My sweatshirt – this old, raggedy-edged, navy blue sweatshirt of my dads that I’ve had for years was getting in the way of my hand. I rolled my sleeve up and was reminded of this (a little graphic)….
In the past month, there were so many times that stopping before the next pill, shot or appointment would have just been easier.
But that’s the thing about life – there’s always an easier way. Even when the more difficult way is not necessarily proven to yield results, sometimes we still have to go through it.
Regardless of the outcome, the strength we gain on the back end always outweighs the pain and suffering we endure for that (relatively) short amount of time.
