Yesterday I played volleyball for an hour and a half again. Only problem was I got hurt right to start with. I bent over to get the ball from the floor and pulled a muscle in my butt down the back of my leg on my right side. I walked it off and was ok. But then when we were practicing some drills, I dove for the ball and landed on that right hip/butt and pulled that muscle again. That time I was in some pain. I couldn't get up off the floor. But I managed to get up and the Coach told me how to help relieve that pain. So I did some stretches to help. I did this for about 5 minutes or so. Then I went back out to play. I played but not as well as I did last week because I was still hurting, just not as bad.
Today, I didn't do anything. I watched football, did some laundry, and put away laundry. So overall a pretty lazy day. But I did manage to get my weight check, measurements taken and this week's picture taken. I managed to drink 10 cups of water today! (Between water and flavored drinks with no sugar/calories.)
So I'm beginning a new challenge this week. I've never completed one before and this one is only for four weeks. This will be my first ever challenge completed! I CAN do this!! This will be another accomplishment I can add to my list.
Now for the bad news... Money is so tight here that we could only spend $34.00 on groceries to last for at least a week if not longer, however that did not include very many veggies and no fruits at all. So my food intake is going to be a night mare for the next couple of weeks. Its more pasta and starches than anything else right now. I stress so bad over the money because with me not working there's not enough money to cover all the bills. Hopefully hubby's pay increase takes effect soon and that will help us to meet our budget a little better. I do my best not to think about how bad things are for us because someone else has it a lot worse than we do. Spending $34.00 for food means I have no money for gas for the van at the moment. So I'm not sure how this is going to work out. I just have to keep believing that things are going to be taken care of and we will be ok and get out of this nightmare soon!
Enough bad mojo, time to focus on what we can do and what is good and positive. Good news: I have dropped 7 lbs. Lost 1/2 an inch in my calf and my arm. Lost 1 inch in my bust and waist and lost 2 inches in my hips and thighs! At 28 days in I am making progress!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!
Day 29 is tomorrow! I've beat my own records for how long I've logged into SP and how long I've worked out . My streaks are getting longer and better! So very proud of myself!!!
Below is this week's weigh in Picture. Thanks to my hubby for taking the picture while football was on!!!
