My Work Outs -R.I.C.E. for me all week long.

Scale Reading -
Hello 1 pound! Seriously bad food choices the last 2 days.

Measurements -
Chest = same
Waist  = +1.5"
Hips = +1"
Legs = -.5
Arms =same

Stress Level -
Week 4 on the injured list and still having swelling in my leg. I'm walking but any activity for any period of time, even standing causes my leg to swell. It's an obnoxious injury. Everyone keeps asking me about upper body. I'm going to give that a go this week. I'm going insane here. If you followed my training through out the spartan race then you know I was at a very high level of working out. Now, I'm pretty much down to sitting on an exercise ball with my leg elevated and on ice. I'm truly losing my mind. I miss my friends. I miss the stress release. I'm not myself. I did NOT listen to my body. In fact I ignored it and I've been paying for it for weeks. Right now I'm trying to listen. I know the difference between discomfort and over doing it. All I can do is keep going for treatments and do what I can at home. At the same time, it all boils down to nutrition. I suck at eating! Period. I make good and bad choices all in the same day.

The UP side -
I really want to take this time and focus on nutrition while I'm still healing. I have to figure out what works for me. Eating clean? I'm reading more articles about it. I'm going to try to start the 100/200/200 back up starting today! I have to figure out what I can do. BIG congratulations to April of @GAFlygirl for being the Sista of the Week!

BLOGGING CARNIVAL: This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by SUBWAY. SUBWAY is giving away a $50 gift card to Lulu Lemon, a green Gaiam gym bag and yoga mat.  Join in the Commit to Fit Campaign and Jared.
I'm looking forward to reading how the rest of my "sistas" did this week.
