Down For The Fitness Count
Currently, I’m down for the fitness count. While I really do hope that some people can find some bit of inspiration through my own weight loss and fitness story, I refuse to sugar coat how I got there and the physical and mental fortitude that it has taken me to stay this course.
I openly admit although I’ve had great success, the mental game is still throwing me at times – as I spoke about in my post The Hardest Workout I Never Had to do.
It’s been a rough month or so for me physically. From dealing with knee / IT Band issues from my newest ouch which is currently my back – yep going to have to take a few days off for this one now too!
While some of you may think it’s totally insane of me to be mildly obsessing over not being able to workout, some of you probably really get it. Once something becomes such a part of you and your routine no matter what it may be, it pretty much blows when it gets interrupted.
Especially when said thing is something you look forward to as a stress reliever and something that makes you feel accomplished and great. So while working out can’t be a high point on my agenda for the time being, I’m trying to come up with some other ways that I can still feel accomplished and de-stress some.
The above quote is something along the lines I stumbled upon the other day and jotted it down. Mind you don’t misinterpret this post, I don’t feel lost per say – I do know that I need to redirect my focus inwards and not outwards for a little.
And although I may currently be down for the fitness count, I’m certainly not out! I’ve just gotta learn to be a little better at accepting sometimes this body needs a serious break. But I also acknowledge that I am insanely better about being more flexible than I used to be even a year ago. Progress always made isn’t made in pounds. Go me.
What prompted it?
How do you de-stress?
