Rain, Rain, Go Away!
This pic is from our Kickboxing Class ... I was partnered up with Ephraim and this is me trying to hold his boxing bag still so he can have his one minute of punch time! Too funny! Our trainer, Sharon, was wanting a camera, so she grabbed mine. We had a great time!
Well, another day of this messy rainy weather. Needless to say, I didn't do the hike as it was pouring this morning. So many people didn't hike, that they put a trainer, Marjorie, in the gym with us and she killed us! She did one hour of "Mountain" with us followed by 30 minutes of Cardio Intervals followed by 30 minutes of Weight Machine Intervals and ended our time with 30 minutes of Core and Stretch. Yup, we definitely burned some calories!
My knee is still out of whack and my little toe is still swollen and blue in color. I've been taking the antibiotics, but it doesn't seem to be helping me much! I soaked it in Epsom Salt tonight with a little bit of Betadine in it and then put straight Betadine on it afterwards too. I'm trying anything and everything for this swelling to go away.
I'm at my halfway mark for my final week! I only have 2.5 days left here and then I leave on Sunday! I can't wait to see my honey bunny! And, my little pooches of course! I'm excited. 4 weeks away is a long time! I think if I do this again, it would only be for 2 or 3 weeks, but not 4! I'm falling apart it seems.
6:00 am Yogalates or Open Gym (I chose Open Gym)
7:00 am BREAKFAST (Italian Frittata and Fruit)
8:00 am Leave for Hike (I stayed in gym as described above)
11:15 am Pool or Core Workshop or Circuit (I did Circuit)
12:30 pm LUNCH (Beet Soup and BBQ Pizza)
1:15 pm Trip to Albertson's (by invitation ... for 3rd or 4th weekers)
2:30 pm Kickboxing
3:30 pm Mountain
4:30 pm Weight Circuit (in lieu of pool due to weather)
5:30 pm DINNER (Cafe Salad and Coconut Sorbet)
I came back to my room ... took a shower ... and went next door with my neighbors and watched a movie, "August Rush". Such a sweet movie, but we're so tired from this day that we almost didn't make it through it! :)
Okay ... hopefully things will be better tomorrow!
