I feel like I'm beginning to sound like a broken record - still in pain.
Called my doc today and decided that it might be a good idea to do a couple of physical therapy sessions. Hey, here is something new! Have never done that before. My appointment is on Friday morning.
Still on track with my exercises and currently on my last cup of water.
I chose my third challenge point, minimizing my WiFi exposure by not sleeping with my iPad on, right next to my head, because I think this increased exposure might be too close for comfort.
There is so much conflicting info out there as to whether WiFi exposure poses a health threat in the long run, how much WiFi exposure we can take without suffering ill effects, or if it even matters at all.
While there is no escape from WiFi, I believe it's probably a good thing to minimize exposure whenever possible as a 'better safe than sorry' precaution.
It's a hot topic really, but I can't seem to find any proof whether for or against.
What are your thoughts?

I think things are finally starting to look up. While I was dragging still this morning, unable to even get my socks on, I started feeling better about mid afternoon. Good enough, in fact, that I went to yoga tonight, and did pretty well, considering. Looks like the PITA is slowly going away.
As for my challenge: I find myself struggling to get my 40 oz of water in. I do it every day, but often I end up downing 3 cups all at once at the end of the day. Need to get that spaced out a little bit better. But, I have 90 days left to get it right.
As for my fun exercises, while the PITA still makes it hard to do jacks, I manage, and 10 pushups are no problem either (and no, I don't do girl pushups!), but I'm already starting to struggle on my reverse pull ups. This will get very interesting indeed, as the days progress and I'm very curious to see how far I can push, and more importantly, how much I'll be able to improve.
TV/WiFi - so far a bust! It just lulls me to sleep so beautifully :)
This week I'm tracking my food, working on keeping it between 1200 and 1700 calories & will fine-tune after the next weigh-in this upcoming Sunday.
That's all folks.

Okay, I'm not a runner, but I guess I might as well start now. Today's diagnosis: A severe gluteus maximus injury (runners seem to be at risk for this), a very painful strain in my back/bum muscle, and it hurts like h3ll. My shot so far brought little relief; I'll be taking a muscle relaxer before bed and hope that I can get up okay in the morning.
I'll be looking into physical therapy unless I see some kind of relief by midweek.
Patience, yes, patience, this will take many weeks to heal. Hard to do if it keeps me from my workouts.
And, weird, but now that I know what it is, I feel sorry for myself.
Alright, enough boohoo.
For my 100 Day Challenge:
* Did my exercises (half jacks again), but luckily my injury will let me do pushups and reverse pull ups.
* Water, I'm in the ballpark with that today as well.
* No TV/WiFi, I fail again.
For my Maintenance Challenge:
I weighed in at the high end of my allowable range yesterday, which means I'm back to tracking my food again. Also, with being out of commission as far as workouts go, I have to be extra careful with my food intake.
Bummer, bummer & bummer!!!

Well, I guess my back totally b.s.-ed me yesterday. I honestly thought there was some improvement. So today it's worse than it's been all week. I'll be seeing my doctor tomorrow.
As far as my challenge goes:
1. Water - yes!
2. Mini workout - yes! (Yes, I did the jacks - I'm really stubborn...)
3. No TV/WiFi - I failed! Fell asleep with my Ipad on last night. Well, that's still 6 out of 7. This week I'll shoot for 7/7.
Ok, and here is the new hairdo. (Just remember, you're looking at the hair, not the face :))

All 3 goals met today.
Spend 2-1/2 hours at the hairdresser's today and enjoyed every minute. Complete downtime. Got highlights and a new do & love it. If I wouldn't take such incredibly bad pictures, and I mean really bad (unless it's a snapshot), I'd post one :)
Well, maybe later.
Have a great Sunday, everyone.
