I’ve spent the past few days readjusting to being back in town, unpacking, and making some big decisions. While traveling up and down the east coast in March, I have unfortunately gained about 5-6 pounds. You would think running two half-marathons would have helped with weight loss, but they most certainly did not. I really wanted to start running again this week, but I have allergies with a lot of coughing. Plus, my knees still hurt. At first, it was just the left knee, but now it’s both. I tried to work out on the elliptical Tuesday, but I only lasted 7 minutes before my knees just couldn’t take it anymore.
I’ve been completely unmotivated to work out (but I really can’t because I’m sick and injured) or to eat better. I’ve been eating the right things, but too much of it. So, the first step in recovery is admitting it, right? So there.. I said it. I’m overeating, gaining weight, and I haven’t cared.
I think I need to sign up for a race to get over this.
What do you do when you’re in a rut?
