I started using Fitness Pal a few weeks ago to log in everything I ate and any working out I did. I was doing great, until I twisted my foot last Monday. I walked out of my car and stepped into a hole, my right foot bent & I almost fell~I even heard a ‘pop’! OMG! My first day of work & I get hurt, leave it to me!! Anyway, I spent most of the day feeling just fine, until about 3pm when I went to get up. I saw stars!! I couldn’t even walk, I was limping so bad. Since my daughter had gymnastics that night, I wasn’t able to actually look at my foot until I got home at 9pm. It was swollen…bad!! Hubby wrapped it, put an ice pack on it and told me to leave it on all night….no jogging for me tonight!!! Around 1am I woke up with a throbbing pain, so I took some Advil and went back to sleep. When I woke up in the morning, I was able to walk. My ankle still hurt, actually it still hurts today, but I could walk just no jogging and no long walks. Good thing is I sit most of the day, so I was fine. A whole week went by of doing nothing….all the progress I was making on the treadmill was gone! Then the weekend, and not just any weekend-Super Bowl weekend…..in other words, eat whatever I want weekend…not good at all!!
After all that, its no surprise that my weigh in today was extremely depressing….I’m up 2 lbs! WTF!!! I gained 2lbs, aaaahhhhh…..I really want to scream. I was good yesterday and I plan on being extra good today. I even plan on squeezing in a 30 minute walk/jog before the high school parent council meeting that I have to attend tonight. If it wasn’t because they are discussing 2013-2014 registration, I would be skipping it. I’m really not in the mood to drive all the way there an hour after getting home from work….but I have no choice.
I just hope to actually get on that treadmill tonight, if only for 30 minutes. I need to start seeing good progress on my FitnessPal.
