Injury, setbacks, rolling with the punches

I planned to be almost halfway through bodyshred right now. That’s not where I am, sadly. I have plantar fasciitis, and that has changed my whole trajectory. For the past week and a half, I’ve been resting, and getting used to the idea that my journey is taking a little different route right now. I am very frustrated and discouraged but I’m really trying not to focus on that. I don’t know what my results goals look like right now, and can only really focus on keeping the habit of fitness up and improving in the areas in able. 

I can’t do any exercise with impact, so it’s yoga, swimming (but the pools at the gym are still closed right now), no impact strength training, and cycle. I’m going to have to put in more time than I’ve been so far if I want to continue to improve, but since the intensity will be lower, I can probably do it with less procrastination. Haha! 
I’m nervous what my return to “real” workouts will look like, and what will happen to my cardiovascular conditioning over the next 2 months, but, that’s not something I can really control right now. I just have to focus on eating very clean as much as I’m able, (yay holidays)  and giving my very best in each workout. 
This month I’m doing Beginner Shred level 1 and 2, a lot of yoga (4d a week), and cycle 2x a week. I’m also going to continue working on my planks, push ups, and other bonus work.
