It's been 4 weeks since I sprained my ankle. Injuries are one of the MOST frustrating things to happen when your on a roll with your workouts !!
Whose got time for sprained ankles when you've got goals to meet and weight to lose,,,gggrrrr!! BUT, I always try to see the positive in every situation. I think it slowed me down enough to realize I can still work out,,just have to find a different way!! So on to focusing more on strength training,
I discovered some Pilates ab workouts, Yoga & stretching. Things I didn't always make time for. As my ankle got stronger I incorporated walking on the treadmill. Today I actually was able to do 3 jogs about 5 min's each!! So lessons learned: *Be patient
* Find a different way to do things
*Watch where your walking!! ha ha
On a lighter note,,my daughter and I decided we needed a pick me up,,it's been about 4 1/2 months since my mom's passing. I've been one big ball of stress and anxiety. I've committed to exercise & working on healing myself physically,,emotionally & spiritually. We decided it was time for a reward.
We did mani/Pedi's,,soaked in the hot springs & massages. I highly recommend hot stone massage!! I literally feel like she worked all the tension out of my neck and back. I feel sore today but in the BEST of ways!! Oh and I have to confess,,we topped the weekend off with an amazing prime rib dinner and crème brulee,,!! (we shared so I think I'm ok )
Happy Autumn to Everyone Remember to Count your Blessings!!

Has anyone ever hid their scale?
There is about 7 weeks till Thanksgiving,,(that's crazy enough right there!! ha ha ) anyway, my weight is stuck,,I get super frustrated and don't feel good about the "awesome" things I'm doing to have a healthy active lifestyle,,I just focus on the scale. Even though my clothes are fitting better & I'm feeling the small but positive changes. I just get down about the scale!! GGRRR
So a bunch of us were talking about challenging ourselves to "NOT" use the scale till Thanksgiving. Maybe a little reverse psychology?? ha ha ,,if I'm not sure where I'm at maybe it'll push me to do better?? Maybe weigh-in tomorrow,,once half way through than at 7 weeks. Honestly I'm scared to not get on the scale
Anyone out there try this??

I've decided once a week to walk/jog a longer distance. Since I've set a goal of running a 10K in the spring, figured I should try to at LEAST walk the whole distance a few times!! ha ha so I put it in my head I'd shoot for 5 miles today...well I did it!! And surprisingly I jogged at least half the distance,,sooo
