Fitness on Friday #18

I'm getting really discouraged. I try, I do well...then, well, I fail.

This week I don't really feel like it was my fault though. I was so excited on Monday when my husband had the day off. I was going to run on the treadmill while he watched the girls. I'd been good the previous few nights walking on there while they slept, but was too nervous about waking them up to run.

Well, I wasn't on it even a minute when I had an accident. It all happened so fast that I really don't know what happened. All I know is my knees are skinned (and I'm thinking rug burned too) worse than I've ever skinned them before. Tonight, more than 72 hours later I am still in agony every time I move my legs.

My husband has helped me wash and dress them with ointment and bandaids. I've cried and screamed like I was in labor. Seriously, this is awful!

So now I can't do much of anything. And it's really making me feel bad.

I need healthy vibes. I signed up to do a biggest loser competition on a big mommy board I belong to. It starts July 31 and runs until October 31. I did this before. I didn't lose much then...just 4 pounds. But this time I'm ready to compete.

My youngest will be a year next weekend. By her second birthday I want to be in my pre-preggo clothes. No, not my pre-preggo clothes with her, but my pre-preggo clothes with my 3 year old. It's time...I have no excuse for being a chubby mommy.

That is all. I am not at all encouraging this week. But I guarantee you I will become more so once this competition starts. I will be drinking water pretty much all the time. My exercise ball will become worn out by the sheer number of crunches that will be done. My treadmill...well, I'm going to show it who's boss ( is NOT the boss!)...ok, so yeah.

Oh and those who wanted to be added to the blogroll in my sidebar I'll be doing that this week. If you haven't been added yet and didn't ask to be last week please let me know and I'll put you on this week along with those from last week. Thanks!

Sorry to hear about your accident and the pain you are going through. I hope you are back on your feet soon. Good luck on your Biggest Loser competition. I thought about joining the fall Biggest Loser competition at my local YMCA.

So sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you're doing better this week.
I haven't participated in a long time, but I'm back now (on my Our Happy Happenings blog, rather than my Livin' With Me blog).

Anyhoo, I would love to know more about the biggest loser competition you're doing. Which mommy board is it on?
