Haven't been around much lately....

Thursday, October 25, 2012

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!! emoticon 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!! emoticon

    I know how hard it is, try to concentrate on the things you can do, can you swim? you can also use that free time to research articles on fitness and cook in batches and freeze for the days you will be able to do more and won't have time to cook

    I have been where you are with knee injury. This is just a temporary set back. Your knee will heal either on its own or with medical intervention. Thanks for being honest! Keep you focus on what you can do! Eat foods that help with inflammation! You are a beautiful person and deserve to take care of yourself! I will be praying for you!

    We all hit roadblocks and get in a slump every now and then. Just because you have an injury that keeps you from being as active as you'd like to be doesn't mean you're lazy or that you've lost your umph. I remember feeling very frustrated and limited after I had my injury. In time you either heal or adjust. That's just life. Hopefully your knee will get better!
