Good morning! It's seems 2021 just told 2020 to hold my beer...and it's exhausting. Does today feel like the end of the first week of the new year (calendar)? At least it's not March again!

QOTD - I work for a technology company, currently running pricing and project teams. Technology companies change frequently -- I'll have my 25th anniversary next month but I'm in my 17th role and I've just completed my 8th acquisition/sale/integration exercise in all that time. I have never been bored.

I have virtual bookclub today after work and early meetings today so not sure I can squeeze in a workout but I'm going to try.

Menu for today is all leftovers except breakfast

B - GF PB toast

L - pizza casserole

D - taco meat with cheese

S - L&F greek, frozen, and warm milk with SF syrup

Have a great jr Friday everyone!

Good Morning and Happy Friday-Eve! Well guys, I really need to take a few weeks off from any type of exercise. I have still been having pain (off and on) after I rolled my ankle in November and apparently resting a day here and there isn't working. I may go to the doc on Saturday but it's frustrating to always get the same talk about resting and all that (usually I get the "overuse" diagnosis) so I'm not sure if I'll go in just yet.

Accountability: Bad! To be honest, I was feeling sorry for myself about the exercise dilemma (ok, enough whining about it!)

Do you have access to a physical therapist? Their goals are usually more aligned with getting back to moving, and they can work to help reduce interior swelling and strain that may be aggravating the injury. I am a huge fan (after two broken ankles and two surgical repairs).

Thanks for the suggestion. The ortho group I use does have a PT group attached that I have used for another injury so if I go to the dr I may end up with PT.

Oh Kelly I am so sorry you have to take a break on the running. Have you thought about rowing to keep you moving? I know when I hit the gym I love the rowing machine and I am not on my feet. Just a thought and I hope you heal quickly.

Our gyms aren't supposed to be open, some are but I won't go until they are supposed to be open. I may need to try some of my hubby's yoga program he does after a few weeks of complete rest.
