Last night before I went to bed I noticed that my ankle, by the top of my foot, was sore. This morning I woke up and my neck on that same side is sore. I think I may have strained both of them while doing some new exercises yesterday. I was doing the Coach Nicole ab video with the planks that can be modified to be more difficult by pulling your butt up. I wanted to just try it, and at the time it didn't hurt. So who knows. I'm so clumsy, it could have just as easily happened while I was walking. Seriously, I always have bruises on my forearms from whacking them into doorknobs as I walk by. I think today I'm going to just walk slowly, for as long as I can before my Dad gets here. (Or until my ankle or neck start to hurt.) Tomorrow I'm going to take the day off.
I weighed myself and measured everything for the first time since before Christmas. I was SO scared of that scale. Probably about as scared as I was the very first time I got on before I started my program. I did gain a little over a pound, BUT, I lost a little on the tape measure. So that's a little victory. I think it might be the wrong time of month to go by weight, so I'm not going to track it, especially since I lost on the tape. I'm just happy I didn't see a five pound gain.
Yesterday I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, but I feel much better today. My Dad is going to be here around noon, and he's staying for the weekend. It is definitely going to be difficult, but I'm just going to put my head down, keep pushing, and do the best that I can. I know it wont be as hard as Christmas was. New Years is more about drinking than eating, and I'm not a big drinker.
