The past month was a real up and down one for me. In the beginning I was doing really well..then I got myself a toe infection..yuck!! Which even to this day I am still getting over....I got it drained and all and well it was so hard to walk /stand still or anything with my right foot. I let my exercise slide..just losing motivation and really trying to concentrate on getting better. It's still not 100% but I am so reluctant to start working out at the gym again (which I love doing by the way). Working out at home is very difficult for me, for some reason I have it in my mind that home is my relaxation place and therefore if I do attempt workout it doesn't last very long or I do not continue with it..whereas the gym I can go 5 or 6 days a week no problem! In that time while not working out ..met someone new, that did not work out as I ended it the other day. And I realized that had I been working out like usual my concentration and thinking would have been on point.
The warning signs would have revealed themselves to me sooner. When I work out at the gym on my own I'm get in a working zone and usually by the end of my workout whatever was bothering me before would have worked itself out. I have realized this very important fact about myself over the last month of me not being able to get to a gym and do a proper workout.
And as my toe is on the mend I have started thinking about exercises to do..like going back to spin class I really enjoyed it and I'm not standing as much either. Just had to get these thoughts out of my head.
