#fitmas week three is over! How did you do?
I have something embarrassing to say though – I’ve not done a single workout during week 3. I fell really ill on Monday – I’ve been having problems with feeling dizzy and like I’m going to pass out for a while now, but on Monday it got really bad to the point I couldn’t walk. I had to leave work, book an emergency doctors appointment on Tuesday morning and get myself checked out.
Feeling like you’re not in control of your body is awful – and the feeling of blacking out, or being on the verge of collapsing is terrifying. I cried down the phone to the receptionist as I was sure I had a brain tumour and they would send me straight to hospital!
Turns out – they don’t know what is wrong and I’m being sent for further tests, she thinks I have vertigo but we need to find out what triggers it – as vertigo is a symptom of another problem. I’ve been told I can’t drive, I was off work until Saturday as the doctor said I shouldn’t work for a week and though the feeling has gotten much better thanks to the medication, I still felt too ill to exercise as movement seems to make it worse.
I’m going to go to the gym tomorrow and do some light cardio and see how I get on. I don’t think I’ll be running on the treadmill – but cycling and cross trainer should be okay.
I’m also doing a productivity challenge this week – which involves my diet. I’ll be focusing more on my diet rather than going hardcore fitness!
Anyway – enough of my rotten health issues! Let’s get onto #fitmas week 4!
Workout 1: Ab day and 40 minutes cardio
Workout 2: Leg day
Workout 3: Arm day
Workout 4: Optional.
