Navigating major life changes and staying OP?
Since April, I've lost just over fifty pounds. I had struggled with diet/weight loss in the past, but this time something was different: I had signed up for a half-marathon and, for once, felt like I had a concrete (non-weight-related) goal to work toward.
I had been doing really well until two weeks ago, when two things happened at the same time:
1) I majorly injured my leg and was officially informed that I would not be allowed to run the half and
2) I started law school.
Now, with a newly packed schedule and a 3-month ban from any kind of running, I'm finding myself struggling a lot to stay on plan. By some miracle, I haven't really gained any weight through all of this, but I've come to a perfect standstill- I haven't lost so much as an ounce in the last three weeks.
I know that it would be stupid at this point to let a couple of speed bumps derail me, but I'm really struggling to find motivation. Any words of wisdom from people who have been in similar situations would be very much appreciated!
