You've Got To Do Your Treatments

6:30am: I decided to go to the gym this morning cause I will be traveling today and I wanted to make sure that I got my workout in. Today was legs/shoulders which is the quickest workout that I do. It worked out well that it fell on the day I was traveling. I was going to do some cardio also, but my feet are still sore from the last couple of days, so I figured that I'd give them a break this morning. I'll probably be giving Jezzabel a walk tonight when I get back into town. 

My lungs feel a little bit cruddy this morning, so although I'm traveling, I'll make sure to stay faithful with my treatments. In the life of a CFer nothing is more important than being active AND doing treatments. Like it or not, that's just the way it is. The CFF pours all of this money into improving our medications and then some of us just blow them off. I get it, treatments are sometimes a pain to do. Sometimes it feels like they are over taking your life. But you know what, get over it. I don't know how else to say it. Do your treatments and live, or ignore them and die. If I take four hours out of each day to prolong my life by 10 years (just throwing numbers out), then I'd say I'm getting a pretty good deal.

Side Note: I got home a little later than expected so all I did today was get to the gym. Looks like I have some making up to do the next couple of days!

Total Distance for Day: 0 miles (I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth)

3 people had something to say...:

I understand about treatments being a pain sometimes, and after a 7.5 hr car ride from NJ to VA I would definitely consider them a pain. But would never skip them regardless of the hour or how exhausted we may be.

You BETTER do your treatments!! Geesh, the alternative isn't good!

I understand that treatment issue. I finally accepted the fact that in order for me to be "normal" I had to be abnormal...

Way to stick with those treatments Ronnie. Your lungs will thank you for it.
