I slipped and fell on some black ice when I was walking the dog this morning. He looked so concerned while I lay there catching my breath. I am just glad I didn't fall on him or break any bones. I will have to try harder next time. LOL! That was just the first walk of the day. I got in 3 more walks, did a little yoga, and debated the wisdom of doing the upper body ST I had planned on, as I jammed my elbow when I fell. In stead of the whole workout I had planned I just did the January Jumpstart video, then the wall sits. I switched to 5# weights to put less stress on the elbow, instead of my usual 10# weights. I managed to do 3 sets of 50 reps for a total of 9 minutes of effort. My legs were jelly!
It is supposed to be brutally cold tomorrow, so I am not taking out the gaggle of girls I normally walk with on Tues mornings. Instead my two nieces will come to my apartment and we will do indoor exercise. The 8 year old will work hard without prompting or complaining, but the 13 year old will grouse and moan. Is it just something she does because she is a teenager? If it is I hope she grows out of it soon. It gets old.
