Something's Gotta Give (and tomorrow's december!)

For the next 4-5 weeks:
I cannot spin.
I cannot run (not that i like to).
I cannot elliptical (is that a verb?).
I cannot strength train.
I cannot attend crazy-early insane workout classes in the morning.
I cannot (well, SHOULD not) lift heavy objects.
Also for the next 4-5 weeks:
I need to watch what I eat.
I need to pay attention to what I am physically able to do, and listen to my body when it says "too much."
I need to get back into the water-drinking habit.
Honestly? It's just frustrating. You would think that sitting around and doing virtually nothing is a good thing. I used to! Now, I really do find myself getting bored. It's strenuous emptying/loading the dishwasher. This week I started back at work (well, working from home) and even that has left me more exhausted than before. I guess I need to get back into the habit of actually DOING things, but for now? Just staring at the laptop makes me tired. Sitting still to work is not so great either, as it starts to bother me after too long. The stairs in the house are getting easier, but walking around doesn't seem to help much.
Sorry to be all debbie downer, but really, how much longer can this go on for? Tomorrow is a new month, and something has got to give. Right now, I just don't care. I get frustrated at not being able to do much for myself (and not being able to work out at all) and that makes me want to eat. crap. I've tried to make smart decisions, but that will only take a person so far. I've got to get back on track, especially given that exercising isn't an option right now...
So, Sparkers, I ask you: any suggestions?
