Sick & Tired – Week 3 – 30 Days of Transformation

Because I adore old people and love to mock them, especially my grandmother, one of my favorite things to say was “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.” Who know at 32 I would really be sick and tired, of being sick and tired. Man this stuff is so frustrating. So for those who may be new to Transformers or this is your first time reading a blog or just your first time hearing from me, my name is LeKeisha and I have Multiple Sclerosis. Was diagnosed a little over 4 years ago. I have a few things that bother me but most people don’t know what those things are or when they are happening. I am not a fan of all of the I read this type of advice. As I say all the time your fitness journey is very personal and so is your health. Many times because people don’t understand what your feeling inside their words or actions, and sometimes both will be in the suck it up range. Since I don’t have a desire to constantly be cussing people out or to even allow peoples ignorance to what I’m feeling affect me I don’t invite people into that realm of my life.

So moving on…
This year my body just does not seem to be repairing itself as it once was. Things that I use to be able to stop doing for say a week to repair and replenish seem to not work at all. I deal with severe fatigue. I get 8 hours of rest every night, that is a must for me. At least I try, some nights I have insomnia, as we all do. Some days I wake up after 6 hours but my schedule is set up to allow me 8 hours of sleep. This is what I need to function. A lot of people think that is a thing of luxury, that is absolutely one of those areas that has almost gotten many a person cussed clean out. The amount of times I have been told by someone that I should get up earlier (insert side eye). Umm no, if it can’t happen around 8 or after it’s not for me. Even with regularly getting 8 hours around 11a I hit a hard wall, like it’s 11p, if I don’t have my fatigue medicine.

I’m hard headed…
I attempt to go without this all the time. I have tried eating different/ certain things, drinks, different sleeping patterns. Just give me the stupid pills. On top of all of that every day stuff I have had two virus’ in like 30 days. So now you understand why I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Why am I telling you all of this…
I am telling you all of this because I want you to rest! One of the biggest mistakes that we make is trying to push through too much. There has to be a level of balance. I talked to my partner today and she said, my body well tell me when I need to stop because I will get sick. We have to stop pushing ourselves to that breaking point. What honestly makes more sense? Taking a day or two days every week to relax and rest your body OR taking no breaks and ending up sick and you are forced to sit down for a week or more. Rest is a part of the process. I am sick now because I don’t rest enough, I feel like I need to be everywhere, all the time, at every thing. My career is based on supporting other people so I feel extremely guilty when I don’t. I am also understanding now with catching two virus’ in 30 days that with everything else that my body is dealing with if I don’t make myself be okay with not showing up to one event I may not be able to show up at 30. As always learn your body and what you need, then behave according.

Be Ambitious and Keep Transforming
