True Confessions: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The good:
I've managed to keep up with my Fab Ab February workouts, gotten in a couple of (painful) runs, and done a couple rounds of tough mudder workouts.  I've also started reading the book The New Rules of Lifting for Women (more on this later).

The bad:
Last week I ended up with a stomach bug that made me not want to eat much.  By Thursday I had lost the 2 pounds I'd gained back - whoopie! But by Friday I was definitely wanting to eat again.  I ate a lot this weekend, probably because my stupid body thought it was starving from earlier in the week.  I should've stuck to not eating.  I also had wine.  A lot of wine. Someone smack me.

I didn't track anything last week.  Oh, there were a couple days of half-hearted tracking, but the past few days my phone's livestrong app has yelled at me at 6pm, "You haven't tracked yet today!" Why did I set up that particular alert?

The ugly:
It would appear I've somehow managed to jack up my Soleus muscle (a deep calf muscle that's really hard to stretch/roll out).  I'm lucky to have a girlfriend who is a PT and she worked on it last night (after 1/2 a bottle of wine).  It hurt like a mofo and there may have been a few words uttered her children shouldn't have heard. I also feel like I pulled something in my neck doing TM yesterday.  I'm a freaking mess and I can't get in to see my chiro until next week Wednesday.  This really sucks and makes me want to cry.

Those are my confessions.  What do you have to get off your chest?

Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Is anybody out there?

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
