Rita: Pink eye forced a week off, but I can’t wait to get back

Ah, week two in Thin It to Win It… I still really can’t believe I’m part of all of this. I really must say, it’s more than a test of physical strength. Over the past weekend, I was so sore that I thought I might cry, and after a long, long walk, I almost thought I wouldn’t be able to make it on Monday. I had my doubts… Could I keep doing this? Do I really have what it takes? I chased any negative thoughts away, however, and, first thing Monday morning, I was there. What surprised me was that, as I began to work out, I really was beginning to feel better. The ache was going away, and I found myself so ready to keep on going.

Despite my reignited eagerness to get into the action, this week has been slightly precarious. Over the weekend, I must have come into contact with an ill individual, for on Tuesday, I awoke with a horrid case of pink eye. Such a condition is highly contagious, and because I don’t wish to get everyone sick, I’ve been home all week. Both of my eyes have been effected, however, I am getting better. I’ve been doing some rigorous exercising at home, yet I can’t wait for Monday to roll around so I can get in and start up my workouts at the gym once more.

Everyone at the gym has continued to be so amazing… Even when I nearly broke down last week, they encouraged me, and reassured me that I would be alright, and that I shouldn’t feel down about needing to stop when I needed to or being sick. Everyone goes through it. I’ve begun to find my pace, where my strengths and weaknesses are, what areas of my body I need to work on… My diet, although there have been a few slip ups, is excellent and I’ve been doing better than I thought I might. Everything about this program is amazing… I can’t wait to get back in next week and kick some butt!

    Even though you had a slow down with your pink eye this week, next week I’m sure you’ll come back stronger and kick some butt. We’re very proud of you.
