Look ma, I haven't forgotten!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I wasn't going to blog today, because I didn't feel like I had anything to say, but I realized well, I do!

Today has been a pretty good day. I actually did an 8 minute interval training video (the one linked on the first day of the January Jumpstart fitness challenge) and it was fun! A lot more intense than I expected. I've been concerned about my ankle, and that's been holding off activity, but I haven't had much pain beyond when I sit on it (I sit indian style a lot) and such, so I figure it's time to start testing.

I couldn't do any jumping, so I modified things, but my heart rate was definitely up (should've worn my HRM!)

I managed to hit almost every nutritional goal today, too. I stayed in my calorie range (just barely over the minimum, actually) and hit all my nutritional targets on the nose. The only one I didn't get was sodium: I NEVER hit the sodium targets. I was much lower than normal (I average 4-5k, today was just over 3k) so I'll count that as a win.

I'm going to keep moving forward, babying my ankle, but I know I need to MOVE if it's going to get back where it was. It's been almost a month now! Don't worry, I'm not straining it, and I'm paying close attention.

Anyway, things are going well. I just need to keep exercising every day. I'm aiming for 10 minutes while my ankle's still not 100%. I'll build back up to 30 later!

    Some things take time to heal before they should be taxed. But in the interim, other things can be done. So never forget that nutrition is 80% of the game and that there are many other parts of the body that can be worked. Keep the faith.

    Way to go hitting the nutritional goals! I think 10 minutes a day is a good goal while you are still recovering.

    WOW! Good for you for doing the 10 minutes of exercise anyway with your ankle! And sticking with your nutritional goals - that is always something to blog about!

    I love the videos on the Jan Jumpstart. None of them seem to be more than I can handle, yet at the same time they are intense!

    Good to know you're giving your ankle a try and keeping a close eye on it.

    Honestly, I have no idea how you're hitting that high of sodium numbers! I'm supposed to be having 4k mg of sodium each day and the only way I ever got close was taking sodium pills (they're trying to keep my blood pressure from being in the 80/50 range). Are you eating a lot of processed foods? Soups? How are you doing that? If you're eating more fruits and veggies and less processed foods you should be getting less sodium.

    Good for you on the moving AND on being gentle to you ankle. Ten minutes here and there quickly add up, just keep heading forward!
