I'm such a klutz!

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Now I did it. lol We were going to lunch, and it has been raining. I was wearing my brand new tennis shoes I bought last weekend, and all of a sudden, my left foot goes stupid or something and I slide a bit, and manage to sprain my ankle. I am the clumsiest person ever. Always have been, always will be. At least I didn't wind up on the ground. LOL. I can walk, but it hurts if I put too much weight on it, and it's starting to swell up just a bit. Could be much worse, but I imagine that my cardio stuff will take a hit this week.

Anyway, of course this happened after buying a new exercise dvd and some weights. And to think I was all set to let Jillian Michaels kick my butt. Bought the 30 day shred. Has excellent reviews on it and am excited to try it. I also need to get out in the garage and dig through a box of dvds that has been sitting in there for the past year that has my slim in 6 dvds.

Tomorrow is weigh in day, and I did sneak a peek a couple of days ago. At that point I didn't drop anything, so I'm not expecting much different in the morning. Not disappointed about it though, because while the scale may not budge this week, I know for a fact that I'm definitely smaller than I was last weekend. Yet another pair of my pants that used to fit just right, are now beginning to slide off and with these, I can't use a belt.

Plans for this week as I look onto my 3rd week is I really want to begin to make some goals that I can start to tick off one by one. Yes, I do have my ultimate goals, but I need to have some more short term ones that I can look forward to striving toward and meeting. Oh, and let's not forget how to reward myself. I have no doubt that a pedicure will be at the top of my list. :) There is a place just down the road does these amazing pedicures and it takes over an hour to be done. They even get the hot rocks out and give you a glass of wine. Talk about a reward. I think I'm ready for that now! :)

    So sorry to hear about the ankle( follew klutz here) I would have laid myself out and have a time or two in the last couple years. Take it easy on it though so that once it feels better you can get in the exercise. Find stuff you can do sitting and work the upper body. All movement is helpful.

    Take care and heres to a speedy recovery.

    The 30 Day Shred is a great dvd, I'm doing it at the moment and am on 24 days straight. It is TOUGH but you will feel so accomplished when you finish it!

    Hang in there so that you can reap the 'rewards' you are talking about...they sound awesome :)
