Okay, so if you’re anywhere in the cold parts of the world you may understand what I’m feeling! Lethargic – from lack of sun!! These dark days can really do a number on you. Typically, the only way to keep my energy up this time of year is through consistent training/ working out in the gym, at boot camp, etc.
I sprained by back almost two weeks ago. Well, really I was sitting in my car in the parking lot of TD Bank and a guy driving a huge monster truck hit the left rear end of my car! Last year I wrote about a similar incident, except I was a passenger in someone else’s car. Chile…. I couldn’t go hard in the gym for a good while. I remember sitting at my kitchen table crying. My daughter asked “what’s wrong?” And I sobbed “I can’t work outttt……” Sad moment. Very sad. I’m at my best when I’m training.
Luckily this sprain doesn’t feel as bad and I’m not laid out on my back taking strong pain meds and days off work. Grrrr.
Do what you can to keep your spirits bright during these dim, cold days. I’ll be trying Bikram (hot) yoga soon (maybe this weekend, body permitting) and I’ll get back to kickboxing, strength training, and boot camp in no time. My physical therapy assessment is next week.
If I were living my absolute best life (I think Oprah has posed this idea/ question), I’d be spending winters in the Caribbean enjoying beach life. (Did you hear that, Universe?)
