The holiday season is always hard for most of us trying to loose weight. I had plans to be ever so good during the Thanksgiving Break.
But the best laid plans ...
Wednesday before Thanksgiving I was out with my family. I'd already put in my run for the day, I was doing good. We went to Moe's for lunch, I was starving from the run, but I didn't do too bad with my meal.
But after lunch was when everything hit the skids.
We were outside Office Depot and my mother slipped and fell. Did a perfect split on the pavement. At 65 years old, it was the first time she'd ever done a perfect split, but it was perfectly painful for her. First thing she said was that she'd thought she'd broken her hip! This of course freaked my grandmother out who immediately wanted her rushed to the hospital.
My mother, having the medical background she has, wasn't about to go to the hospital. She took time to breath and slowly shift. When she realized she could move her foot, she knew the hip wasn't broken. But it took my father and I to lift her up to standing and hold her upright. With me being the primary support (and grandmother somewhat helping) my father went and got the car and drove up so we could get her into the car.
We got her home and dad and I had to basically pick her up the stairs to get her in the house.
Somewhere in the process of me running and helping my mom, I injured my left leg. The tendons on the front of my left leg got pulled. I tried running yesterday and I was unable to do so. Had to walk instead.
All of this happening right before the 5k Jingle Bell Jog on Dec 1!
To top it off, hormones fluxing over the holiday, colder weather setting in, stress of my mother's injury.... my diet fell off the wagon and got left in the dust.
Hoping this week will get better. Rainy weather is depressing, so I have to be aware of that so I can combat it. Fortunately today I won't get home till late, so I won't have a lot of time to sit around and get the munchies.
I always want time off to rest, but that rest time always seems to have stressful events too... not to mention too much time to create the munchies...
I was so hoping to do so much better this past week...
