Dreading This Post

Well, I have not posted since Friday or Saturday and to be honest I am not looking forward to posting tonight.  I took the weekend off of exercising to possibly help my Achilles tendon out a little bit.  Well by taking the weekend off of working out I apparently think that gave me the right to take the weekend off of my diet as well.  Basically I'm eating crow today, why not? Ive eaten everything else this weekend, and just admitting that I ate horribly and don't even have any good workouts to show for it.

I am disappointed in myself a little bit.  I used the birthday excuse, had too many pieces of cake, ate too late at night...basically I did EVERYTHING WRONG diet wise this weekend.

That being said, I really doubt I will have any weight loss this week and will probably gain again, for the 3rd week in a row.  Ah!!!!!!  I am just mad that this week it is my fault that I gain.  Here's hoping that my weight doesn't sky rocket!  I am doing better today and getting back on track.  I have already planned my meals out for the week and I am currently putting together my modified workout plan.

My weekend of rest helped my foot some....It felt much better this morning when I woke up and felt better most of the weekend.  So I did steps this morning and it was excruciating pain.  I called my ortho doc and he doesn't see patience for Achilles pain so I called one of my local docs here and asked him who I should see.  He let me come into his office on such short notice and gave the leg a look.  He could see the big knot on the side but does not think it is my Achilles, he thought it was a flexor muscle located to the side of the Tendon.  That was good news....the bad news is I have to modify my workouts.  For the next couple of weeks I will be spending a lot of time in the pool and I am going to skip steps on Wednesday and just run on solid ground and see if that is any better.  Basically, I have to try to find workouts that don't hurt until it just doesn't hurt anymore.

I would take the whole week off from running but I have officially gotten to the point where I think I love it.  I don't want to miss my runs.  And I have my very very first 10k this week and I really want to do good in it so I will be running this week as long as it is not too much pain.

I hope you guys are not disappointed in me for failing miserably this week.  Please don't be because I am incredibly disappointed in myself.  I promise I will do better, not more gains....enough is enough....and every other motivational thing that should inspire me to do better.  The BIG goal is still 100lbs even though I have been retreating from it for a few weeks now. 

Hope you all did better than me this week....but if not you can join the "WE CAN DO BETTER" Train!

I feel your pain. I have a bad ankle as well. And I have had to modify my workouts as well from time to time. I also have a herniated disc, and that has slowed down my progress as well.

I could never be dissapointed in you. If it hadn't been for your blog, I doubt I would have had the courage to go public with my weight loss. Thank you for that.

We are all in this together. I still have 75 more pounds to lose. We can do this...together.

Hope your ankle feels better soon :)
