Yes I am stubborn at all the wrong times. Yesterday I really wanted to workout. I ended up at the track figuring I could walk/jog. Got around the track 5 times before I was smart enough to STOP! I stretched before, during, after and the pain grew intensely! My ankle definitely needs to be seen, think I'm gonna go get a wrap today and try to hold off the pain til I get back to Korea. My knee just needs to be cut off!!!!
So walking and anything else on my feet is completely OFF! I finished up yesterday with pushups, tricep dips and extra stretching. Today I'll do some upper body stuff like more pushups, jabs, may go get a light hand weight set.
Is it bad to start the day with chips and salsa even if it's Cinco de Mayo? Figured it was better than whole milk and bad cereal.

WOW! I arrived in TX last Wed and have been nonstop since I woke up Thurs! Internet has been touch and go due to some bad weather that took place and my being in between moms and my friends houses. No exercise :( Not real good eating :( No sparkpeople :( Dropped a class because I've been too busy.....
I saw my boy a couple times (jail visitation), had an exciting welcome home, through a fantastic better than expected surprise bday party for my best friend who did not know I was already here, spent her actual 30th bday with her yesterday, spa treatment!!!!, First Monday shopping...well here's a little more in detail....
I've been feeling guilty for not checking in here and helping out with the Total Gym group. As I said though, internet has been iffy and I've been super busy. Wednesday, after a long day of traveling and repeating the day (still funny to me) I settled into a nicely priced and comfortable hotel room. FINALLY SOME SLEEP! Thursday morning got up, got a phone from Walmart (I hate Walmart but they have a good prepay phone plan), ate Taco Cabana while trying to figure out the phone, then went to moms after she got home. Friday went to see my son. Had an extended visit, YAY, but still through a window where we have to use cups to talk or we can't hear through the small silver circle. Then got ready for the surprise party. My friend thought I was coming in on Sunday. She had a feeling about the party but did not have any idea about me being there. She cried with excitement when she saw me :) I am ashamed to say much of that night has fallen victim to alcohol induced amnesia. Thank God for trusty designated drivers!! Saturday I left the hotel I stayed in Friday night and went to moms. I was VERY sick all day so laid around then my friends boys wanted to see their Aunt Kristal so off I went, to her house. Spent the night then Sunday I went to see my son again and spent the remainder of that day with mom and step-dad.
Monday was the fun day. My friends actual 30th bday so I treated her to spa pedis. This had to be the best spa place I've ever been to!!! It wasn't big and fancy, wasn't overpriced, but felt like it was worth a million bucks!!! Then went shopping and ended with a trip to Joe's Crab Shack...YUMMY!! Spent last night at her house without internet so did some paper homework for the residency I'm attending next week.
Today I'm doing laundry, checking in on school, going to see my boy again, visiting with mom, then possibly preparing for a trip to see my friends in Houston tomorrow. So far I'm scheduled to be super busy until I arrive back in Korea. I thought I was going to have a ton of free time to focus on myself but nooooo. That's ok cause my knee is in killer pain!! By night time I'm nearly crying while sitting with an ice pack. My ankle has been bothering me a lot too so will get it looked at once I'm back in Korea as well.
One more thing....I got The Spark yesterday!! :) I can't wait til I have time to sit and start reading it!!! May be my entertainment on the plane going home.

Hard to type cause i am on a keyboard meant for koreans. every so often i get a weird symbol and have to backspace. Ipod didn't charge all the way and for a 10.5 hr flight followed by 3.5 hr lay over and another 2-3 hour flight, that can be misery. Fortunately right at my gate is an internet cafe. Bought a cord for $10, charging ipod now for free and using their computer with wifi for free. YAY!
Waiting is a funny thing. Already I'm wishing we could get to CA faster than 10.5 hrs just cause I dont want to wait on the plane that long crammed in a seat with a sore knee and bored cause this plane doesnt have the tvs on the back seat. Poor me right? ;)
Looking around I see others are finding other ways to wait. Some are doing makeup,some talking on phones, some watching tv on their phones or ipods, listening to ipods, eating, etc. Many ways. Then I see something I, as an American, never thought I'd see. To my left, inside the airport is a Smoking Room. I hope they have good filtration!! Glass windows and doors. doors slide open and in they go to smoke their cigs. NASTY!! Then I saw someone buy a coke and thought, huh, progress shown for thy self! Not too long ago I would have been the one looking for a coke and drinking coke on board, as well as a glass of wine, and a bottle of water that would get drank slowly. This time I searched all over for a bottle of water. Finally found one for 4,000 won, meaning between $3 and $4 I think. But I have it and what a refresher that was!!
Well something just popped up in Korean. Not sure if I'm gonna get kicked off or what it said so gonna close out. I will report from the other side! So weird to me still that I'm going to repeat this day completely. At least its not a Monday :)
