It just feels like it's slipping....suggesti
Tuesday, November 02, 2010
Haven't blogged for a while...thought maybe if I captured some thoughts today, it might re-kindle my spark. ..it just feels like it's gradually slipping away.
I think it started with my running injury late in September. I had to take time off, and I recognize the importance of healing..but it broke a very solid routine..one I really enjoyed.
When I am less body active, my mouth seems to want to make up for it..I start to snack more, on less than healthy foods..I get bored, so I snack..that makes me lazy, so I do less...and around it goes. I have taken therapy, massages, anti-inflammatories..ibuprofen is my new best friend..anything to get things back to where I can do my running and biking..Have been back running for a couple of weeks, but I am not pain free, and I am feeling the symptoms of " better stop now or else" happening again.
I have joined a gym, strictly for studio classes ( zumba, muscle up) etc, and am considering a swimming routine..to give the leg a "rest"but I gotta say I am just NOT feeling the "spark" of enthusiasm..
Why? Is it because it's that transition time of year? ( let's face it, it's darker, the colours are gone, flowers are done..kinda dreary..)Am I eating the wrong things?
I know this has a very "down" theme to it..but it's how I have been feeling for about 3 weeks now.
I have come so far,,,only have 15lbs to go..but because I can feel all this in the background I am trying to nip this in the bud and get back on track....so it doesnt become 20lbs, 25lbs etc...
Any and all suggestions very much appreciated...and thanks for listening!
