Disappointment still lingers

Sunday, February 03, 2013

So, I went to my doctor today and he is sending me for xrays and then an MRI if the xrays don't show anything. I was hoping he was just going to tell me I pulled something funny and it would be fine, but after some feeling around he told me to lay off the exercising until they did some further tests. Great. Well, I guess it is good to rule out any underlying problems, or potential problems, but it sure puts a damper on my great little streak. I will have to learn to love strength training for the time being, but that was something I was going to start working into in a month or so, because, that actually feels like exercise and I am not at the point where I would enjoy it. Running, I really love.
At least I am eating better (although I caved yesterday and did some emotional eating.. not going to beat myself up) and making some good choices.

February.. I don't like you so far.

    Sorry about the bad news. Can you at least do some light walking or strength training of the non-affected areas? What a bummer! emoticon

    I hope you have speedy recovery!! I broke my leg a couple of years ago and was heavy into curves and I couldn't go and still lost 10 lbs that month, so keep your chin up! maybe do some chair exercises. Good Luck!

    Ohhh bummer! I am totally crossing my fingers for you that the X-ray shows something very minor!! I bet you'll be back on your feet in no time.

    I'm going to be trying to add more strength training too, so we can groan about it together :-P
