Doing OK

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Hi Everyone,

I'm doing fine, not perfect, but still a passing grade. Giving myself about a 78% for yesterday.

I have a lot going on at school. As of this morning I have 109 assignments to grade (no, I didn't count them; my online course management system broadcasts that to me every time I log on).

I wrenched my knee at cardio power pump, I think last Saturday. The Spandex Nazi has you stepping forward, back, left, right to a fast beat while using weights and sometimes my feet just don't go where they're supposed to. emoticon TC (who is ready for a knee replacement) is panicked that I will do more damange so has talked me out of doing the classes until it doesn't hurt anymore. I know he's right...but that seriously impacts my exercise routine.

I also bought a small container of almonds the other day (good fats, right?) Well, not so good when you eat them all in one night. emoticon

SO...in light of Vandal's post today about talking to myself better, I am going to let yesterday go and make today a great day. I will get on the treadmill, do some spark videos for weight training, and do a great job eating! I am proud to say I have NOT had any alcohol for 10 days and that's the most important STREAK for me right now. I'm trying to flip my thinking so it's not something I'm giving up, it's something I'm doing for myself because I DESERVE THE BEST OF HEALTH!

I'll plan to check on all of you this evening, so make this a great day and work on that POSITIVE SELF TALK!

    That darn lateral side to side movement will get you in the knees every time!! And there's not much you can do about it except protect it. Maybe when you go back let her know you will only be doing the front to back stepping.

    Being nice to yourself is hard isn't it? We are supposed to be our own best friend but it is such hard work.

    You inspire something in so many of us. Thanks and keep on forging ahead.

    I'm with TC on the knee - You can set yourself way back by overdoing it - let it heal!!

    Maybe you can do weights at the gym work on your arms/abs or whatever.

    A BIG WAY TO GO on that 10 day streak - keep it running!

    I think you are in the grove maybe not perfect but you're hitting the biggies!!

    Sorry about your knee... but what other things could you do? Do you have access to a pool? With the water there would be less impact. Hope you heal soon.

    You are doing great!

    One day at a time is how we get it done. I have to remind myself of that every morning. Way to keep moving!
