I need it... I want it.... I love it...

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Im tired, cranky and still a bit tender....

I hurt my shoulder a couple of weeks ago but I have been ignoring it. Then all of a sudden the pain travelled, it started on Saturday and by Sunday night I could barely move. It feels like someone has Karate kicked me at the base of my spine. I feel all bruised and very sore.

I think the Spiderman pose pushed me over the edge but all this was already on its way too me.

So Instead of behaving... I have been eating and sabotaging. Even though I know I am doing it, I still do it!


And this upcoming weekend is Thanksgiving long weekend..... and I know that I will be indulging in wine and food and and and and...

... and I know I will so I NEED TO GET BACK TO THE GYM!

Im feeling better today... my shoulder is still bugging me but my back feels MUCHO better compared to Sunday/Monday although I still feel bruised.

Hubby is encouraging me to lay low for a couple more days to make sure Im not pushing myself too hard as I have been going quite gangbusters since the 1st of September. He's right but at the same time.... I NEED TO GET BACK TO THE GYM!

I need to work out because I LOVE TO EAT! ....( and I love good red wine! lol) emoticon

I am NOT weighing in this week, we are going to pretend that this week didn't happen ( even though it's not over yet)

And Starting Sunday... I am getting back to my regularly scheduled program!

This doesn't mean for the rest of the week it is a free food for all, it just means that I won't be getting back to the gym until Sunday.

Im thinking I need to go back to baby steppin too.... at least for 5 days out of 7....

    Well it's now Thanksgiving Monday so I hope you are back at it and taking it slow! I may have indulged in a little too much food and red wine yesterday, but I'm back at it today as well. Way to stay focused!!

    Heather, everything I've read about fitness says a person *has* to include regular rest days when on a exercise program. Consider this down time a gift your body is giving you as it mends. Drink lots of water this weekend, especially before meals--it really does help a person eat less. I'm with you on the wine. Love it, avoid it most of the time, but definitely will be having some this weekend--gourmet restaurant meal Sunday evening and Turkey and Everything on Monday. I've just got to keep thinking "portion size, portion size, portion size; average calorie intake, average calorie intake, average calorie intake". Good luck navigating this weekend of temptations, BC'ers!

    Ah yes, a love of food and red wine... I can commiserate.
    Glad to hear your back is getting better. Celebrate the victories and move beyond the small setbacks.
