There is never a dull moment around here.
The week started off good, I got to the gym on Monday & Tuesday to do some running to prep for my road race on Saturday. Then, around Wednesday I started feeling a cold coming on. The 4-year-old had just gotten over his, so naturally the baby, my husband & myself now had it. I was also having some serious pain in my wrist and had pretty much lost all range of motion. So, I headed off to the doctors who said it looked like I had a ganglion cyst on my wrist but it seemed too hard, like a bone to be a cyst. So, I was sent to get x-rays.
I got a call back later that night that everything looked fine. So, I turned to google where I learned that ganglion cysts can become hard and feel like a bone. I also learned that if you hit the cyst with a big book, it goes away. So, I had my husband hit me with a big book and voila! All better!
We also learned about a “historic storm” that was heading to our area on Friday. I don’t know why, I doubted the enormity of the storm. It snowed all day and all night on Friday and on Saturday morning we woke up to over 3 feet of snow. My race was postponed and I spent the weekend shoveling. Yesterday I even shoveled our roof. I also walked around the neighborhood on Saturday and Sunday. My whole body is sore, but I ended up losing 1.8 pounds this week! That’s 4.2 pounds in the past 2 weeks! Woohoo!
So, I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing (I will obviously have to replace snow shoveling with something else!) and keep that scale moving down.
That is my car parked in the driveway!
