Performing my exercises yesterday (I use a video workout, “Extreme Makeover: Weightloss Edition”), I twisted my ankle again. Master and I are both convinced that I’m shifting my body weight on my feet wrong during one of the exercises that is causing my repeat injury. He’s going to review the video and probably watch me once I’m better to see if we can’t find out what’s going on. In the meantime I’m back to seated exercises and then the Walk Away the Pounds video once my foot is better.
It kills me to know that I’m hurting myself doing the very thing that will make me healthier and happier. I need to know for myself what is going on as well because I enjoy the difficulty level of this workout. It’s produced specifically for obese and morbidly obese people with altered exercises that I can actually do but are very challenging. I feel good doing them. But apparently, I’m doing one of them wrong.
On Friday, Nanowrimo starts. I’m getting nervous, like I haven’t prepared enough so I’ll be doing some final review of my outlines, ideas and thoughts before then. I’ve decided that I’ll do a reverse nano – which is that I’ll have high word counts the first week and they will slowly decrease as the month goes on, when most people find it really hard to write the daily goal I will have a smaller one because I’ve already done a huge one. I do have lofty goals on the amount of content I want to write, but I think I can do it. I have my wrist braces standing by and I go to the store tomorrow for shopping and I’ll get power snacks so that I can keep going.
I know already that this shopping trip will be on the high end of the budget. We’ve run out of a lot of non-foods like shampoo, razors and such. So, I think I might figure out a more cost effective food budget to offset that cost. I never expected to run out of all of this in one grocery period. Maybe I should plan for that and increase my stockpile by one? I don’t know yet.
