Trim Up Tuesday - Week Three

So... I may be the only person ever to take the elevator down at the gym - after only getting through the warm up. Hmm.
Yesterday I was all psyched about doing Body Attack at the gym. I was a little sore from running with Ryan and his bike the day before, but I stretched for a good ten minutes while I waited for the class to begin. I got through to the end of the warm up track, when with no warning I felt my calf muscle SNAP. I was able to recover quickly and not go falling to the ground, but I knew a muscle snapping wasn't a good thing, so I hobbled out of the class quickly, grabbed Chloe out of the daycare and was on the phone with my doctor's office before leaving the parking lot.
Luckily it's just a calf strain, but now I'm out of the gym for one to two weeks and have to keep it on ice. I may have to admit that I was possibly over doing it at the gym. When I started back up, I went full force right back into these classes that aren't very forgiving on unused muscles and joints. Maybe a week or two off will make all those muscles and joints stop screaming at me, but I'm afraid the time away will make it difficult to get back into it again.
Without further ado, here's what a weekend of nachos, mojitos and getting your period will do to your Trim Up Tuesday numbers - and I even stayed active all weekend:


  • I am back to my starting weight. (It mocks me. Just a few days ago I was down a total of 2.5 pounds.)
  • I am 1 pound heavier than last week.


  • I worked out 3 time(s) this week.
  • I did 2 hours and 10 minutes of cardio this week.
  • I did 1 hour of strength training this week.


  • I did meet my last goal.
  • My Last Goal Was: To eat healthier and snack less. (For the most part this is true - up until Saturday night.)
  • My new goal is: To heal and get back to the gym.

OUCH! I cringed just reading that! Take it easy, it's better to wait an extra week or two then tear your body up permanently for life. Good luck!

Ouch, ouch, ouch. I still think it's great that you are doing this, though. Take the time you need to rest, and you'll be back before you know it.
