Mother Nature is conspiring against me!

I really, really want to reach my goal weight by this summer. We go on a vacation every year to the beach and I am ready to go and feel good about how I look in a bathing suit (maybe even a bikini-LOL). My work schedule this week has just been crazy and I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to get to the Y and still do everything I need to do. I decided that I would just go ahead and bundle up and walk outside. It's faster and easier and I was hoping that I'd be able to get a couple 30 minute walks in each day and at least maintain until I can get back to the Y next week. So what happens? I slip on the snow/ice and hurt my ankle. I haven't been able to do any exercise since Wednesday. Oh Mother Nature, you are killing me with all of this crappy weather!

One interesting thing that I've noticed the past couple of days - I'm grumpy when I don't get to exercise in the mornings now. Actually, I didn't notice it as much as my husband noticed it for me-HA HA! My ankle is feeling better today so I am hoping that if I take it easy one more day I will be all better by Sunday and ready to work out hard!


  1. Sorry about your ankle! Take it easy.

    I'm so glad I have a treadmil at home (it really is a shame I don't get on it as much as I could). I am trying to change that:)

  2. Sorry you fell. I have total empathy for you about not working out affecting you mood.

    Hopefully it's feeling better soon.
