Ok so I'll admit it, I have been slacking off when it comes to SparkPeople lately. It's not because I don't care or because I've given up or anything like that....I guess my knee injury has finally hit me completely. Well no, I shouldn't say it like that because I've known the whole time just how serious it is, but up until about a week or two ago I was staying positive and trying to be optimistic about my situation. I am just so frustrated that I can't do pilates or yoga or use the treadmill or the elliptical or go for a walk around the block with my dad like we had gotten in the habit of doing :/ I'm not trying to make anybody feel bad for me because even in my miserable state I am fully aware that things could be a billion times worse....I'm just frustrated and I feel useless and lazy....even though I'm not avoiding working out due to laziness, I'm not allowed to exercise plus I'm not physically able to exercise (in the above mentioned ways at least) right now anyway. I had been doing a few of the seated workout videos I found on here every day, but they just aren't the same as using the elliptical for half an hour or doing pilates....Idk what to do, but I don't know how much longer I can deal with not being able to do anything....It's driving me absolutely crazy!!
Also, thanks to my annoyed and frustrated state of mind, I haven't been as diligent about tracking what I eat which makes me even more frustrated, but I'm trying very hard to get back on track with that at least since that's the last thing left that I actually have control over. UGH!! I'm going to lose my mind!!
