Welcome to the Weight Loss Wednesday linky!
Feel free to join in with any fitness, weight loss and healthy eating posts you have written recently – it is great to keep the support going and learn about new diets!
This morning I had the news I was hoping I would not receive… that I cannot do my usual arm weights for potentially a couple of months. Holding back tears (yes, I may have welled up ever so slightly), it dawned on me that I will now have to work on a new gym routine… maybe to target my butt and legs… but what about my arms?!
Damn kerb. Dam drink. Damn taxi. Damn shoulder. Damn everything. Damn stupid gel that is supposed to make it all better!
I am stubborn, being stubborn is what shifted the weight last year. Being told I cannot do what I want does not rest easy for me. Lord knows how actual athletes feel when they are simply told to take it easy! Your workout routine becomes everything, you actually start looking forward to it and feel guilty when you cannot train.
This has taken me back to when I first started running and sprained my knee… being out for 3 weeks was hideous. The lure of chocolate right now to comfort eat and make myself feel better is very strong, not helped by the fact we received a lovely hamper of Easter chocolate from Cadbury yesterday.
I can’t delve in though, I need to remain good and on some sort of track.
Getting into the swing of things with the shakes has been tough this week, even though Mini Me isn’t here and the fridge is empty, I have still found it tough. I’m giving myself the day off to mope and tonight shall be having Explore Asian Organic Endamame Spaghetti with some chicken pieces later on this evening. It will be different but high in protein, high in fibre and low in fat… and more importantly full of flavour.
Next week will be much better… let’s bring it on! I’m just ranting at myself more than anything!
How do you cope with an injury – how do you adapt your workout?
