Happy Monday, friends! How was everyone's weekend?

I spent most of the weekend resting, but yesterday I thought it'd be good to get up and see how I was feeling. It was a nice sunny day so we got out and about. I was tired, but doing okay. Until dinner. It was my first REAL meal in a week, as I have just been snacking and eating what sounds good - except for that veggie filled dinner - that was real food! Anyway, my delicious clam chowder soup, which I ate only 1/2 of, followed by my 6oz filet mignon (also ate only 1/2) and couple bites of garlic mashed potatoes filled me to the brim. It was so good. Which is why I am very surprised I nearly fainted walking out of the restaurant. We rushed me out to the car and home to bed.

I don't know what the issue was. I guess I was just so exhausted from getting up and moving around? I feel much better today. Still have the sniffles and now a cough from the sore throat of last week. But I really hope to be 100% in the next couple of days.

I am so ready to get back to working out!! I am still a bit weary of this foot irritation I'm experiencing. I started feeling it the Thursday before I got sick, so I have not had another day of running since hurting it, and only 1 day of ST. I don't know why it hasn't healed yet. It makes me quite anxious as we have our race in 3 short weeks (from yesterday). We really need to get 1 last long run in this weekend. We have been so bad with our training - this could be a miserable race. So I think this weekend we need to do a nice, slow and easy 7.5 miles. Hopefully we can make it happen before going out on Saturday night for our Valentine's celebration! That will be the true test of this injury or whatever it is going on in my foot. But that also makes me anxious because I don't want it to get any worse. I do have some arch/ankle support sleeves, so maybe I should wear that.

Anyhow - I want to workout again!!! I want to get back on track and stop being sick or injured or unmotivated or whatever it is that I've been suffering through lately! I was loving working out hard and feeling great about that. I want that feeling back again. NOW! emoticon

Even if I could just get my ST days back... I'd be happy with that for now! But, I can just picture it if I went right now... plank position with a puddle of snot under me. Cute. I'm sure the rest of the gym goers would love me for that. I guess I really have to wait until the runny nose is gone. Until then, I can plank to my heart's desire at home with a pile of tissues on the floor. emoticon

Anyhow - this is my current mindset and I am just frustrated with not being able to do what I want to! This is worse than being unmotivated. Being motivated but unable. Thanks for listening to my whining - I hope everyone has a great week!

    Sorry to hear that you still aren't back to your normal routine. It's super important to let your body rest for as long as it needs though so that you can make a full recovery. You'll be back at it in no time!

    I think many of us can sympathize with you and don't think of your frustration as whining. However, I am glad you are resting and letting yourself get better before you get back to the gym. Sure don't want you fainting after a session at the gym!!

    Keep taking care of yourself and resting as much as you can, here's hoping you're better for that run!!

    Sending you lots of healing thoughts and love.

    Sorry you feel bad, but snot puddle planks made me laugh, I guess that's one way to clear those sinuses.

    Dang! Wanting to so bad and not being able to is crummy! Sounds like you're getting better though which is awesome. You'll be back at it in no time running and ST'ing. Hang in there! emoticon

    Hoping it all gets better soon! I know what you mean about wanting to do more! I was upset becuase pushups were getting so hard with my belly... then I figured out if I put my hands up on my treadmill I can do good pushups again without pounding babygirl into the floor... I was so happy!
