My Work Outs -
Tuesday -1.5 mile walk
Wednesday - Crossfit

Days I'm not working out I'm getting my house really organized! I'm not sitting around but I'm not hitting it hard either. See below.

Scale Reading -
In the midst of all my cleaning I can't find anything. I'm pretty sure that compared to last week I'm just maintaining. No gain, No loss.

Measurements -
I still can't find that measuring tape. I'm gonna hunt some more today.

Stress Level -
Week 7 on the injured list and still having issues with my leg. Saturday I broke down and bought one of these! Sunday I started wearing "the boot" and my leg swelled and it hurt more to hobble around in the thing than to walk on my own. I spoke with the Dr. this morning and apparently that's NOT suppose to be happening!!! So now they are scheduling me for an MRI. After the Spartan Race the paramedic told me to go straight to the ER to have it looked at just to be on the safe side. That statement to me, translated into a choice so the last thing I was going to do was spend the rest of the day in an ER. I should have went! It's 7 weeks later and I'm not better. My workouts are very limited. The treatments aren't working, the boot is not working and now I'm back to doing what I should have done in the very 1st place. BAD PATIENT!

My husband has left the country again for a week. In the first morning that I'm alone I find that I'm going to have to do the MRI. The boys woke up not feeling well. I personally thought they were just trying to ditch school. Then the 4yo started puking so yeah, now I feel terrible for not believing them. lol - Geez! 

The UP side -
I'm gonna get the MRI and get this issue resolved once and for all! My house is getting cleaner and cleaner every day. Congrats to Sister of the week! Scarlett of @
