I started realsies Physical
Next, she had me get up on the table, where she then had to work all those kinks out of my feet and massage the areas with the worst Plantar Faciitis. I am not a foot person and I don't like that sort of thing. It makes for an awkward experience let me tell you. The
But the very next thing was the absolute worst of all. I have horrible, horrible balance issues. And I have since I developed the blood clots/DVT's in 2008. I pretty much can walk down a hallway at work and still veer into walls. If I ever got pulled over and was forced to take a sobriety test, let me just say it wouldn't be pretty even if I was stone cold sober. So, she had me get on this balance ball thingy with a piece of wood on top on one leg and try to move my foot front to back. Twice. And then side to side. Twice. For 2 minutes. Longest. 2. Minutes. Ever. By the end my legs were shaking so badly she took pity on my and let me cut each leg short timewise.
Lastly she had me do 3 sets of planks. I did worse than when I did it on my own at home. I think the first was around 7 seconds, then 9 and then back to 8. Can you regress with planks? Geez, it was awful! But maybe I was still shaky from the whole balance fiasco.
So I get to do this all over again tomorrow! (Wonder if I should take a Xanax before I go?) Hmm.
Saturday it was rainy and yucky but I still managed to go with my mom to the gym. I got another Doctor Who ep watched (Not enough Rory in that episode!) and then did a killer arm workout. After that, went home, showered and went to the grocery store. Then decided to meet up with my mom and my aunt again and we went and saw Saving Mr. Banks! (It was really good!)
Sunday was supposed to be laundry and clean the house in my jammies day, but it turned into holy-crap-how-is-it-that-we-have-never-ever-discovered-Minecraft day! Yea, after we started on that, the next thing Chris and I knew it was 10pm. It's like the crafting part of World of Warcraft and the Sims had an 8-bit baby! I sooooo cannot wait to build a Millenium Falcon or a Serenity!
But first, laundry and the house have to get cleaned! So that's the plan for tonight after work and then some yoga. Then maybe some Minecraft. I have off tomorrow and Wednesday for New Years and we are hoping to have just a low key next few days. We are still binge watching Arrow so there is that, too. We may go out to eat with the Parental Units at some point but that may be the only highlight of the Holiday (that and the LSU game)! Just the way I like it!
I found this video of Oz this morning while trying to clean out my cellphone. I think I was just starting my weight loss journey when this was taken. Oz is seriously the craziest cat!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? Do you have any exciting plans for NYE or New Years Day?
