1 goal on hold

Hi Everyone

This is just a quick note to say that I will not be completing one of the goals in my perfect 10 but not because of laziness. I was watching the begginer IntuFlow videos because I intend to add that to my routine. One of the things he said about working to fix the pain instead of working through the pain his home. For the last 3 weeks I have been getting a pain in my side, similar to a stitch, every time I walk. Not just exercise but walking from my front door to the lift (5 steps) or across the road to the shop. When I exercise I get it worse but have been trying to work through the pain and obviously things have not improved. So I am taking the week off to give my body the chance to heal, if then it hasnt improved I will have to go see a doctor about it.

I will adjust my eating to accommodate the lack of exercise but I expect a weight gain by the end of the week anyway. This is a conscious decision to give my body, which has given me so much in the last 6 months, the chance to rest as it obviously needs it.


  1. Ruh, roh. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Just a suggestion, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Side pain during walking is often caused by dehydration. Another thing to do is stretching after exercise. Rest up a week or two, and then when you start again start slowly, increasing the distance and intensity very slowly, and stay hydrated.

  3. The 2 week break helped a little. My trainer reckons its an oxygen problem and I need to go check if my pollops have returned.
