Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
I think I broke/sprained my little toe this morning.
I’ve been working a lot the last few weeks, so getting up in the morning to exercise before work has been a challenge. I’ve skipped more workouts than I’d like and in order to keep this from happening and slipping back into bad habits, I’ve started not placing my alarm on my nightstand. Instead, I place it on a drawer a couple of feet from my bed to actually make me get out of bed to switch it off.
My mind’s fuzzy around what happened, but it almost feels as if my legs just gave out under me as I was making a move for my alarm. I fell, somehow landed on my knees and must have done something to my toe in the process. It’s been hurting like a mofo ever since and every step is painful.
I’m ridiculously pissed - at myself for being so clumsy, at my assistant who is partly responsible for my increased workload, at life in general. I wanted to do one last long run before my half in mid-April because I don’t feel confident enough about the race. My race is in 2 weeks so I know that doing it next weekend isn’t a good idea. I know I should taper and all these things, but this week was not yet supposed to be for tapering.
I’m quite honestly freaked out because an injury is the last thing I need. I have the half in April, then another half in May and yet another half in June. I can’t go into this season unprepared and injured.
