A Quick Update and Today’s Goals

It has been a week since I posted here, and I’m ready to get back on track today. Aunt Meme passed away shortly after my last post so Lance joined Mom and me on a trip to Houston over the weekend.  It was an emotional time, but I got to see Dad.  I even had the rare opportunity to take a picture with both of my parents which made me happy.

In other news, my left ankle has been bothering me a lot for the last ten days.  I twisted it while working out (during Zumba, I think) and haven’t taken time to stay off of it.  Instead I’ve walked from my place to the French Quarter and explored the stages being built for the Superbowl which is happening here this year.  Between Mardi Gras and the Super Bowl  it’s about to get crazy in my neighborhood!

I know it’s not wise to aggravate my ankle by walking a few miles around the quarter, but I also realize that I can’t afford to skip any more workouts at this point.  It has been over a week since I’ve done formal workouts, and when I don’t exercise regularly I lack energy.  I just don’t feel as good as I do when I sweat a little everyday.

I plan to ride the bike at the gym today because it will aggravate my ankle less than most things. Have I mentioned that it’s swollen and a little painful?

My other goals for today include drinking a gallon of water and keeping my calories around 1350.  I did some meal planning too which always sets me up for success.  Now I just have to stick to it and remind myself that I love myself more than junk food.
