1. I took a fall this week
I scraped and bruised my knees and hurt my hand. It was the stupidest thing. I was walking along with the kids and stepped off the edge of the sidewalk, turning my ankle. I fell flat down. My ankle is, funny enough, totally fine. My hand and wrist have been bothering me since then, causing me problems with anything I have to grip or lift.
The good news is, today, it just feels sore, rather then painful. I think it's almost at the point where it will stop interfering with daily activities. It hasn't stopped me from running or swimming, but it has kept me from biking, since I can't hold onto the handlebars or brake.
2. I gained 2.8 pounds this week
Sneaky of me to put it in with my three things Thursday, but I've been avoiding posting it, and I need to get it out there. I'm not going to whine or complain about it. I made a series of choices that gave me that gain. It doesn't put me back into the obese category - quite. I'm skirting the edge though, with a BMI of 29.9. Not a place I want to be, and not a place I intend to stay for long.
Already today, I'm starting to feel less sugar crazy. It's what I've experienced every time I cut out sugar. The first day is really really tough. The first week is hard. Then I start to feel more normal, balanced and in control. I'm past the worst of it though.
3. My son informed me yesterday that I am a good runner, as is he.
His sister, father and grandparents, on the other hand, are "not very good runners". I'm glad I fit into the elite category with him. I guess everyone else should step it up a notch... ;)
