I think we need to remind the south coast of British Columbia that we are in a rainforest and and to stop this nonsense in thinking that it is an arctic climate. I don’t usually complain about the cold…but I will say this…just a wee bit chilly out there. We don’t usually get to the -9 degree temperatures and I was quite happy when they announced on the radio this morning that rain was in the forecast for the weekend.
I am at the office…early as per usual with an ice pack on my knee on a little contraption we managed to put together yesterday so that I could keep my leg elevated under my desk. The leg is looking much better. Still weeping just a bit…but in all fairness…the scrapes are quite superficial actually and the swelling has gone down. I iced it a lot last night. It is starting to turn all those magnificent shades of purple. I like purple actually….but I don’t think this shade is me. I prefer the more vibrant shades personally.
My daughter pointed out to me last night that since I have started to take this medication, which unfortunately is necessary for the next little while, I have fallen twice now. True…and both times I have turned some interesting colours. So enough of this tumbling. I will have to stop falling like the temperature and just get on with it. I don’t fall down on a regular basis as rule. The last time I took a tumble was two years ago in Pacific Spirit Park after a wind storm…again I was running…but there was just some loose debris and the landing was substantially softer.
My work out regime has been interrupted for the last two days. Bit of a drag really as I was really getting back into the my regular routine. Always let the body heal…otherwise it could be worse. I am hopeful that I can do my Yoga class tomorrow night and I can run on Saturday.
The diet portion has been going quite well actually. I can see a few areas that I need to curb. Last night I had a craving for carbs…so nibbled on some crackers and a bun after having pasta for dinner. For the most part, however, the diet portion of the 12 week plan is going quite well. I had planned on doing a weigh-in at the gym this morning so I will do this on Monday morning. By then I am sure that my knee will be well on its way to mending.
That is where I am at on this rather chilly day. Let’s all think heat….ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
Have a great day!
