Feeling defeated

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

I feel like I am on a roller coaster with my health. I had been doing so well with my consistency and noticed big changes in my weight and the way my clothes were fitting.

I have been struggling with a knee injury over the past 6 weeks ( my doctor says it is from overcompensation due to my Achilles tear on the opposite side last year) but I have pushed through and found healthy opportunities to keep working out. Saturday night my knee just buckled and gave way and I fell forward. My toe was in the most awkward position. I thought for sure it was broken but thankfully it is just sprained. Now I cannot work out for 4 weeks and can barely stand. My wedding is less than three weeks away.

On top of that i have the flu AGAIN. I have been sick almost every other week since October. I'm so thankful to be getting married but just feel so defeated with everything else.

    Hang in there! You've overcome some big health/wellness issues -- your toe is just a blip in the road and the flu will run its course soon. This is nature's way of MAKING you slow down. Cherish every day.

i'm sorry you've had some bad luck with your health lately. well, more your physicality. its nothing you could control, so don't beat yourself up too much. take this as an opportunity to focus on food, and to destress before the wedding! relax and take time for you!

    I'm so sorry you're feeling yucky. It will pass, though - hang in there.

Remember that you still have control of your nutrition - you still have control over what you put in your mouth. If you are watching what you eat, then you have nothing to fear.

Get well, rest up, and remember that this, too, shall pass.
