Sinuses Slowed My Steps but Not My Progress

Saturday, January 2, 2016 / Leave a Comment

So post a challenge to walk a minimum of 6k steps everyday and then what happens...
Get hit with a sinus infection so INTENSE you can't get out of bed or breathe.

This is what happened to my step count the last seven days. Unlike some people
who'll tell you to 
PUSH THROUGH
NO PAIN NO GAIN
GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT
NO EXCUSES....

Yeah... that is some bullcrap. 
Stress and illness are taxing to your body. 
When you don't feel well unless you have a doctor's clearance
one of the best things you can do to get better is REST. 
(And for me pray. Read more about my faith here.)
So I did and the inability to breathe on Monday is 
90% resolved today without using medicine.
Tea, lots of liquids, apple cider vinegar, grapefruit seed extract 
and most nights sleep and I'm ready to start walking once I reach 100% again.
 I project I'll reach 100% by Monday. 

My commitment to walk at least a minimum of 10k steps by April 30th hasn't ended. 
I'm just smart enough to know I have to adjust my short term habits
to reach and maintain my long term goals.
So I'll restart my minimum 6k goal as soon as I'm able to breathe at 100% again. 

I've missed my walking... sigh.
