I haven’t worked out in over a month. The last workout I logged in DailyMile was a two mile walk and the Bikini Body Mommy workout for day 31 on October 2. The last time I ran was August 27 and it was a measly one mile. The last long run I did was eight miles on July 6.

Between football cheerleading season, getting sick, staying sick, sinus surgery and recovery, my life has been pretty sedentary the last couple of months.

And I don’t like it.

But I can’t change it.

I am still not up to exercise; I am barely making it through the days.

But I don’t like it. At all.

I feel lethargic. I feel down. I feel like it is going to take FOREVER to get back to where I was in July.

But I also know that I can’t push it at this point unless I really want to suffer an even longer setback.

So for now, I am focused on resting well, eating (mostly) well, and recovering well.

But December 1 is coming and with it comes another training schedule for my next half marathon – the Disney Princess Half Marathon in Florida in February.

And I will be back.

Because now that I have discovered how good I feel when I work out regularly, it feels pretty rotten to do nothing.

And I am not going to go backwards.
