What I can, and what I can't do

I can't jump rope.

No, the evil one tried to make me do that today. Oh I tried. I made it through the first set. I even made it through the boxing glove, punch, & lunge torture she made me do. God help me I did the jumping jacks. I just finished the second set of God only knows how much time with the jump rope when I felt a pop. Seems I've strained my Achilles tendon. Oh joy. It'll heal, it's just sore. It didn't stop me from doing bicep curls, triceps dips, lat pulls, and whatever it's called when you lay flat on the bench and push 10 pound weights up into the air until they touch and then bring them back way down low...oh yes, that's called torture. It didn't stop me from doing torture. It also didn't stop me from doing 30 minutes on the elliptical. It will stop me from ever again doing jumping jacks, jumping rope, and donning the boxing gloves. No, the boxing gloves had nothing to do with my Achilles tendon, I just don't like them! She's still trying to figure out how I got a black eye from doing jumping jacks!

What can I do?

I can figure out what's working with my weight loss journey and what's not.

I lost 4.8 pounds this week. I got yet another star. I reached my #175 off tonight. I have NEVER lost 4.8 pounds in one week. My whole monthly total for March was exactly 4.8 pounds.

I think I might be on the right track!
