80 today will be different

Thursday, June 27, 2013

First for those who wondered - I walked last night too - over 15,000 steps on Mr Fitbit.....

I have no car today - it is being detailed - so, I am carless. When I am carless I feel trapped. I am at work. I am going no where anyhow - but I still feel trapped! Why am I like that?

No walk at noon, had a meeting with our marketing director over lunch. Ate pasta - ooops! I wanted it. I ate it. It's gone and over!

Tonight is softball with my son right after work. No time to get a walk in until after. My knee hurts. It really hurts. I probably overdid yesterday.

So today, I am not walking. In fact I am going home from softball, propping my knee up and icing. I don't want to be sidelined because I don't know when to say when!!!

I'm sure Mr Scale is snickering - but I'm not going to go look. It's one day in the scope of a lifetime. I need rest. I am going to do what I NEED to do today. That is a change for me!

    Rest is very important! Good for you for listening to your body and taking it easy.

    That's such an important lesson - LISTENING to what your body NEEDS. It can be very tough, particularly when you're "in the groove" and scared to step out of it. Enjoy softball with your son and enjoy your rested knee after!

    Glad you are listening to your body when it needs rest.
    Hope you had a blast at your son's ballgame.

    Our body tells us what it needs and for your knee.. ice and elevation sound like the best plan. When we don't listen we usually end up hurt or burnt out.. So I am jumping for JOY that you are listening..

    Mr.Scale is no real friend anyway.. never has been.. our friends are our clothes fitting different or feeling better, clearer, knowing our healthy choices are working .. and sometimes we just need pasta great attitude.. have it and move forward.

    Hugs .. have fun at the game then you and MR.ICE have a date...

    Have you tried spinning? I have heard that it's a good work out for people with certain knee problems. I'm sharing because, up to last year, I thought that cycling would be hard on your knees.

    My body insists on rest day and I actually do as well if not better on the scale. I think a little change is good once in a while.
