One week until Christmas.....and no snow.  I live in Wisconsin for a reason, people!  I love winter, and Christmastime is the best time every for snow!  So, there's that.  Also, I did a number on myself.  Here's what happened.  I love boot camp.  Love the challenge, the vibe, the social aspect, the fact that I didn't have to come up with the workout myself, la-la-love.  Love it so much, in fact, that I started Bodypump classes too.  These weren't as intense as boot camp, but I was really loving the help with upper body work.  The problem is that I pushed it too hard too fast and hurt myself. :(  A few weeks ago, I was feeling pretty intense pain on the left side of my chest.  A whole bunch of scary stuff was running on a loop in my head for days on end.  The pain persisted so much and robbed me of so much sleep, that I went for an exam.  I found that I'd strained and bruised my chest wall on the left side.  So painful.  Now, I have to rest.  This should make me jump for joy.  Doctor's orders to sit and knit in my pj's with a cup of tea?  Ahhhhh, no.  I start YTT in a few weeks, and I want to be ready.  But, here I sit.  I plan to keep running and do some other work that won't strain my chest muscles.  Bummed, because I was really feeling the new and improved upper body strength.  Then I remind myself that I'm healthy, I'll heal, and I'm not required to meet any fitness goal on any specific timeline.

 

For now, tea, knitting, and using the handy excuse to let the small people in my house do dishes.  I will try to savor the rest imposed upon me and go from there.

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I am in south Louisiana, so this is no surprise! I don't think I've ever seen snow on Christmas.
