Happy Wednesday, and that brings us to Weigh in Wednesday! I didn’t weigh myself last week because on the 2nd I slipped on the snow and broke my butt. I don’t know if I actually broke my tailbone, but it certainly felt like it. The bruise I had was magnificent, I could barely bend over without a shooting pain in the bottom of my spine and my hips, and sitting down – forget about it.
Considering that I’d actually lost some weight for that last weigh in, was pretty darned impressive. I took it very easy for the first 10 days or so. Then I’d made the mistake of trying to “push through the pain.” Whoever gave me that advice… it was horrible advice (totally was myself). Everything was fine and dandy until the 14th. I was taking it slow with just some yoga and pushing a bit further for walking. But I woke up and decided one day “You know, it’s a great day to try some cardio.
What on Earth was I thinking?!
Take someone who is already clumsy and sore, and then have her do some lunges. I somehow managed to slip, and guess who fell hard on her ass. Again.
Yeah, I was down and out for days. If I hadn’t broken my butt, in that moment I was certain that I had. The string of curse words that flew out of my mouth would have made a sailor blush. So, I put a halt on all exercise, I went to work and took it so easy.
My poor butt.
Within the last couple days, I’ve actually been doing some yoga that is super easy going on the butt department. I have done zero cardio. My walking has been abysmal (which is fine, because somehow I lost my FitBit, so I don’t have to see my itty bitty step count. Silver lining?)
Good news, I’m feeling better. I can get up and around without whimpering about my butt. I’m still taking it super easy though. A quick call to my doctor, and it’s a “you need to take it easy.”
So taking it easy is what I’m doing.
So, if you’ve heard enough about my broken butt. Here’s the weigh in for ya’ll
Last weigh in: 197.5
This weigh in: 196.4
Total lost: 1.1
Total lost from highest: 67.6
Look at that! Even with a broken butt (sorry, last time) I still managed to lose some weight! Boils down to about half a pound a week!
I’ll definitely take it!
And as it sits right now… the first 3 weeks of 2019 have all been losses!
