Just had an ingrown toenail removed and the doc ordered some rest for a few days. Not being able to exercise like I want is the worst punishment you can give me. I used to hate exercising but we can't enjoy something we are not good at so I kept working on my fitness until I was fit enought to exercise properly and began loving it in the process. I don't take rest days unless I'm burned out so this is new territory for me. In my obese days I would have given up and started binging out of boredom. I thankfully have my eating habits very well controlled through low calorie dense foods that keeps me full and prevents over eating. It has been a struggle to reach this point of balance but now I see how nutrition is more important than exercise because we are all one injury away from not being able to perform physical activity so it's crucial to have a solid strategy in those situations.
