Keep on keeping on.

Last night before I went to bed I noticed that my ankle, by the top of my foot, was sore. This morning I woke up and my neck on that same side is sore. I think I may have strained both of them while doing some new exercises yesterday. I was doing the Coach Nicole ab video with the planks that can be modified to be more difficult by pulling your butt up. I wanted to just try it, and at the time it didn't hurt. So who knows. I'm so clumsy, it could have just as easily happened while I was walking. Seriously, I always have bruises on my forearms from whacking them into doorknobs as I walk by. I think today I'm going to just walk slowly, for as long as I can before my Dad gets here. (Or until my ankle or neck start to hurt.) Tomorrow I'm going to take the day off.

I weighed myself and measured everything for the first time since before Christmas. I was SO scared of that scale. Probably about as scared as I was the very first time I got on before I started my program. I did gain a little over a pound, BUT, I lost a little on the tape measure. So that's a little victory. I think it might be the wrong time of month to go by weight, so I'm not going to track it, especially since I lost on the tape. I'm just happy I didn't see a five pound gain.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, but I feel much better today. My Dad is going to be here around noon, and he's staying for the weekend. It is definitely going to be difficult, but I'm just going to put my head down, keep pushing, and do the best that I can. I know it wont be as hard as Christmas was. New Years is more about drinking than eating, and I'm not a big drinker.

    I don't drink either, and I just wanted to say that I hope your weekend went well! It's a new year!!!

    I wish the scale had been kind to me, but it has not, so the work begins next week. HOWEVER, it will now be delayed because Auntie Flow has decided to visit, and that will put me out of commission for at least 5 days... But, after that, full steam ahead!!! I can not wait to get into the water again. I did look at the videos for the new Jump Start Challenge here on Spark, and there is NO WAY that i can do any of those videos. I fell on my knee last July and it has never been the same since, and I can do NO exercising on it, except in water, the impact is just to much... So off to the pool I will go!!! HUGS!! Shannon

    My friends all call me "Bumbly Becca" because I'm way more liable to trip over my own feet than, say, an ACTUAL obstacle. haha.

    Awesome job losing those inches! I wouldn't worry too much about a pound. Weight fluctuates and it was Christmas week to boot.

    Keep it up lady!
