I’m just popping in here briefly to update my story on my Thrive90 program. I have technically completed Phase II as tomorrow (Sunday) is a day of rest. I will weigh myself, take measurements, weigh myself, and complete the fit test in a couple of days.
But I wanted to talk about something that happened during this part of the program. During the second of the four weeks, I sprained my ankle. But, like many of us moms out there, I ignored it. Or, at least, I tried to ignore it. I wrapped it in an ace bandage, used ice and heat, and elevated it. But I continued with my exercises, sort of. And I did not go to the doctor. So the second week I didn’t work as hard because my ankle wouldn’t tolerate many of the moves. I finally decided to go to have it x-rayed. So, during my third week I had a diagnosis of a sprain with instructions to rest it. Duh!
But, instead of using this as an excuse to skip my exercises, I decided to modify the exercises so that I could still workout without bothering my ankle. That was easier said than done, but I wasn’t about to quit halfway through this program. About halfway through week four, this week, my ankle began to feel better. So I gave it my all in the last two days – boy am I a bit sore!
As a result of my injury, I do not expect to have the same kind of results that I had after the first phase. I will be content to know that I have maintained. Check back in a couple of days and I’ll have those results posted. I am looking forward to starting Phase III of Thrive90 on Monday.
