Worried… already…

In an effort to keep from flying into a deep, black, injury induced depression (my pants fit tighter already and there is NOTHING I can do about it…) complete with feelings of hopelessness and giving up… I started lifting weights again. I can’t really even stretch my lower body that much because it puts too much strain on my pelvis and any core work is completely out of the question (yes… I tried… YES… it hurt…). I’ve got to do SOMEthing. You can’t just run nearly every day for over a year and a half and then just… stop… It’s impossible. But any overuse or strain gives me the feeling of (forgive the graphic description) being kicked in the groin… hard. Complete with nausea (but without the glory of the “No $h!t… There I was…” story…).

As a distraction I have been pursuing a couple of leads on exercise bikes. One is of questionable origin or quality but the price is right (free) and the other is actually a good quality spin bike that is in great shape that a local college is auctioning off. If I could pick it up for $100 or less it would be a steal! Even $200 for this bike ($850 new) would be a good deal. I used to love to do Spin classes and it was a GREAT workout. Hopefully something will pan out. It would be nice to have SOME way to do aerobic activity…

I now run in fear whenever someone brings goodies in to work. My superman willpower is definitely being weakened by all the kryptonite laced yummies floating around work. And being frustrated and depressed by it all certainly isn’t helping. Especially since one of my worst bad habits is eating for comfort when I’m down.

I’m worried…

    Hope the bike trainer purchase turned out well for you! If it didn’t, have you thought about buying a trainer to fit on your current bike. I picked one up for $75 a few years back and it was a life saver.

    I am like you – when running is good, diet is good. But when one is off – both are off.

    Keeping good thoughts for a speedy recovery and sanity along the way.

    I can’t stand taking time off because of an injury. If I choose to – that’s one thing, but forced breaks are torture!! What helps me is to imagine that time period as an exercise of my discipline and self-will in the area of dieting. It doesn’t usually produce miraculous results, but it does ease the focus on not being able to exercise like normal.
