Sorry about not posting last night guys. I actually got home just a few minutes before midnight and was aiming to get right in bed. I had to clean out my car because it looked like a bomb exploded in my backseat...workout bags, food bags, a computer bag, a few wal-mart sacks and trash. I changed clothes about 12 times over the weekend and all of the changes of clothes were still in the car. It took me 3 trips to get everything out. Once the cleaning brigade started I really didn't have any other option but start some laundry....most people use a laundry basket I just use my backseat:)
So I finally got in bed about 1am. I just decided I was tired enough to sleep and not post...and then I rolled over in bed and when I did I actually winced out loud from the soreness in my core. I got so tickled when I couldn't roll over in my bed and thought that was a sign that I needed to post before the night was over. So out of bed to get the computer, but when I got my it out it would not participate.
I had a wonderful weekend. I made it to the gym ever day this weekend. I'm still on modified workouts but I think they are working. The first couple of days of riding the bike was uneventful, so in an attempt to break a sweat I cranked up the level, from 5-10, and my butt and hamstrings are paying for it. I finally worked the soreness out of my arms, and the abs....I think they are just hurt now. I did my 100 crunches on Sunday, then I did some obliques yesterday. Hence the rolling over in bed is now an impossible task.
My food has also been on point. I am still cutting back the carbs and loading up on protein. It takes a lot of the fun out of food but its a sacrifice I am willing to make to keep from gaining back a gajillion pounds while I am sidelined. I really miss crunchy things. I never realized that meat and cheese are the same texture, really nuts are the only crunchy I get in the day. Some veggies are crunchy but they also seem to be the veggies I don't like.
I only have one workout tonight, no weights I have to recover, so only cardio. Another 10 or so miles on the bike (I will stay on tonight until I am sweating) and then off to Biggest Loser.
I go back to the doc on Thursday to get the last of the bandage off of my leg , hopefully get my brace, and maybe just maybe be allowed to get the leg wet...like swim wet not shower wet. I just hope now that it does not snow so that I can get to the appointment.
Another thing: Have y'all seen this new show on A&E named HEAVY? I saw previews for it a few weeks ago and it interested me, but I am too cheap to pay for cable so I don't get it. I did however find out that they show the full episodes online...LOVING IT!!!! Its no Biggest Loser because its not a competition, but more of an emotional journey and I kinda like that. I hear them say things that I have thought a thousand times before. I urge you guys to check this one out.
