A long silence

Monday, March 14, 2011

I haven't blogged in over a month. I returned from my sister's exactly one month ago. I have been trying to exercise more and it is going pretty well between spinning and doing elliptical. I want to be walking and running, especially since the weather is nice, but every time I try, I end up with knee and hip pain. I am finally getting my steroid shot next Tuesday and I hope that will calm down the lower back/glute/hip pain. Food has been a big struggle for me. I feel so down that I just can't get it under better control. I guess I just haven't been very motivated. I need a new challenge - somehow losing five or ten pounds just doesn't do it for me and any physical challenges are stymied by injury. This is why I haven't blogged; there just is nothing to say except frustration that I can't exercise better control and can't run. I am thinking of dropped off all my running groups because, although I am so happy for all that you are achieving, I just feel so dejected and left behind.

  Unfortunately, I have lots and lots of smaller clothes that are just about 7 pounds too tight. They aren't motivating me right now because I just can't bring myself to care. I am hoping my husband and I can plan some sort of trip to work towards. That might help cause I sure need something!

    But at least you are doing the eliptical and spinning while you are healing---that is great! Maybe buy a smaller size pair of pants and aim for wearing them by a certain time-----would that motivate you?

    I am with Mary in the weight training arena. I need to do it so badly but always come up with an excuse not to. We should start a Spark team for Weight Training Good Intentions LOL. I wish like heck there is something I could do for you and feel so helpless. Just know that I send you major league {{{hugs}}}. Ask mary (lightningrunner) what my {{{hugs}}} are like LOL.

  Lightningrunner, you are such an inspiration, and I wish so much that I could follow you on your excellent recovery. You are burning up the miles and believe me, I stand in awe!
