Today’s snowstorm has put me over the edge. I’m so tired of winter and cold and snow. It’s just dragging on and putting me in a funk.
Not to mention my leg is still bothering me and I haven’t been able to run for over 2 weeks now.
I did get a chance to talk to a physical therapist and after a little adjustment he said to rest it a little longer.
Thankfully, I’ve still been able to make it to the gym as lifting doesn’t irritate it. Only running, which with this weather wouldn’t be that fun anyway. So I’m trying to look at it as a positive. I mean if I’m going to hurt myself I’d rather it be during this crappy season than, say, May. Right?
See, I’m trying to look on the bright side. It helps. :)
Anyway, I really am going to Kalamazoo tomorrow. Special K asked me to join a small board to discuss weight management, and our first meeting is tomorrow.
I’m excited but feel a little out of my element as the other members are all doctors and dietitians. There’s no doubt I can talk endlessly about weight loss but it all comes from my own experience so I hope I’m of some use to them.
All I can do is go and be myself, right?
When I get back Wednesday night I have exactly 12 hours before I hop on another plane to visit the ALDI test kitchens in Chicago!
It’s a busy week for sure and today’s snow day didn’t help. I feel so behind. I have 3 posts in progress on GreenLiteBites that I’m hoping to work on while traveling. I haven’t posted anything on TheUnworldlyTravelers in a couple of weeks. And wrapping my head around the conference seems impossible at the moment.
On the weight management front I’m taking a break from food journaling but have been focusing on just eating smart. Translation: No mindless snacking! The rest of the week will be a challenge for sure but I’m feeling really motived. Today I dug out of the snow and headed to the gym.
Tomorrow I’m planning on taking the early class before heading to the airport.
I’m doing what I can when I can and it’s keeping me afloat at the moment.
