I realize I haven't blogged in a while. I reached for the scale this morning since today is March 1st. I am up one pound for the month of February. Up to 204. Went to log it into Spark and into my Google document and realized I hadn't recorded my weights all month in February except for the first one. After over 2 years of religiously recording my weight every week I am suddenly hiding from those numbers.
Now to to make things even harder for myself, on February 16th I went rollerskating with my daughter. I was looking forward to those fitness points and excited for the calorie burn. I was a bit nervous I might break a leg but I never dreamed I would break my elbow. That is what happened though. I fell a few times and went in for x-rays the next day. I have a messed up wrist now and a broken elbow. We are 2 weeks into it now and the pain is still constant. The prognosis is good and I have told the doctor that I plan to skate again. I just need to wait until I heal. In the meantime I'm pretty nervous about being outside on the ice and snow and I really can't lift much with that side. So I am trying to take it easy and that is not easy to do!
I am a long way of reaching my goals now. I'd have to drop 24 pounds in 10 days to reach them. Not realistic I know.
