Discouraged but full of hope!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

I feel like a whiner or quitter but I know that I will continue and be stronger for it! I am still awaiting healing so that I can continue on my Hybrid Journey of Insanity, Running and P90X. I have had to stop my cardio days as I thought that I had a pinched nerve but we are hoping that it is a stretched muscle or ligament. My right side above my butt crack hurts as well as my knee. My knee is feeling close to the IT Band pain that I have felt before. Therefore I finally went to the doctor and was told to stretch lightly and take it easy. I can get completely discouraged when this happens because MY GOODNESS I SEEM TO GET INJURED A LOT!!!!!! What I have to realize is that my body is always needing stretching! I also know that I am getting better at listening when my body is angry and therefore I recover quicker. So for now I am sad about putting my hybrid on hold for a week or so but I know that once I have rested completely for the time I can kick my butt again soon! I have been eating clean for the last couple of days and I really should be writing my points on Spark...so I will try! I am going to have to incorporate a day of yoga(yuck!) or stretch(ouch!). Now I know why I have tight muscles!!hahaha. I do stretch already but I know from past and present experience that I need to stretch more then the average person! Well tomorrow I will see how I feel and go from there...I am assuming that when I am able to walk or sit without pain then I will be good to go. I am going to enjoy eating clean and maybe drop a few lbs and really get that on track and by then I should be good for the cardio part! Ups and Downs...Twists and Turns. What a journey.
