This morning I woke up and stood up to go to the bathroom. Nearly fell down when my left leg buckled with a shooting pain. I stretched it out and made it to the BR. All this water does not allow for a lot of leeway. After walking a little and stretching, it was better, but I knew I could not walk or run today. My right ankle is sprained, it's mild, but a sprain. So no exercise today. Today I'll rest instead of Saturday called for in the plan. I have TKD again tomorrow and if I continue to improve, I'll go.
I really love TKD and I do not think there is anything major going on. My upper thigh is just strained from all the kicks. I'll see how it goes. My ankle is an issue and if it's not a lot better, tomorrow I'll have to skip TKD. That being said I plan to bike in the morning and try to do the plan exercises. I know Allan gets pissy when the plan isn't followed, but an injury is an injury so no walk/run today. I hope to resume my C25K Friday.
Today I didn't eat much. I was just queasy and tired all day. This is likely due to the fact that I took a benedryl last night and been taking ibuprofen for my aches. It upsets my stomach. Of course I didn't eat much at all. I had breakfast and skipped lunch, no snacks. Just no appetite. I did eat a healthy dinner, on the plan of course. I drank all my fluids, plus some and I'm still thirsty so I think it may be my allergy meds I took today. Thanks a lot mold counts! After all that ice and such last week, the mold is crazy as everything thawed.
I think Allan's plan is brilliant. It is easy to follow and I'm usually not feeling hungry. I have to admit I don't necessarily like all the foods, but I don't hate any either. The structure has been good and bad, but I've been losing weight, although not much faster. I don't get that. But, I'll stick with it as I'm continuing to lose weight. I admit I had 100 extra calories yesterday, but that was just an extra snack after TKD which was a HARD class as you'll remember per yesterday's post. Thus the whole injury thingy.But, it's not too bad I'm sure I'll be back to normal really fast.
I forgot all about my new gear. I went on Valentine's Day and bought myself some new running shoes. They are the same as my last pair they fitted me with, but they are pink. So much more fashionable. Plus I went to Kohl's and used my gift certificate from Christmas to buy some new workout clothes. All of mine were getting huge. It's about time to get a couple more bags out to donate.
