So yesterday the knee started acting up again. It actually feels like my IT band but I've learned not to assume anything. Walked Mavy this morning and it was feeling a little achy. I'm so done. So completely and totally over this whole f*cking knee thing. I'm OVER IT!!!!! I have made an appointment for the chiropractor this morning, we'll see if that helps any. Last time I went to him it actually made it worse, so I'm a little hesitant but I need to do something.
On that note. My last post was about not beating myself up for not having the time to fit workouts in, but I also need to be realistic when I'm using being busy/tired as an excuse. Which I think is what I have been doing. I need to look for opportunities to get a workout in. Yes, my workdays are busy, but there are days this past week where I could have gotten a workout in, I just chose not to for some reason. That's not true, I know the reason. I didn't feel like it!! That is not a good or valid or even acceptable reason at all. I'm starting to fall back into old patterns and I need to not do that.
So my goal this week is to look for opportunities. Look for places where I can squeeze in a workout. Look for times when I can do some quick squats or leg lifts or something to move my body. I cannot go on this way. I don't like being in almost constant pain. I don't like feeling tired or lazy or whatever the f*ck it is I feel. I'm just plain tired of it. So time to switch things up.
So this week is all about finding opportunities!!! And I'm starting with a visit to the gym.
