Well, if you’ve been following my story, I have been enduring a severly bruised tailbone. I am not 100% better, but I have been able to do a lot more than usual.
I took all of last week off from exercises because it was very painful. I am taking today off as well since it is still very sore. Saturday afternoon I stopped at Sam’s Club to get some water and I made my left glute hurt from using that muscle to lift the bottles into the back of the van. Ugh! I need more rest.
Hubby took me out to see the new movie Australia on Saturday. It was an awesome movie, however, I don’t recommend seeing it if you have a bruised tailbone. LOL Two and a half hours of sitting was tough to endure. I sure wasn’t thinking when I agreed to that!
Today my two younger girls completed a lapbook on Cinderella. It was a great study on forgiveness and pumpkins. It sure amazes me how people can read an ordinary childrens book and find deep messages in them. I sure haven’t been blessed with that gift.
Thanksgiving was a wonderful holiday for us. We had planned to drive down to Terre Haute and stay in a hotel, but due to my “rear troubles” we stayed home and had our usual Thanksgiving dinner. I did make some slight changes to our dinner so it was a little more healthy. We didn’t have a big dessert offering. My 11 year old made a light, sugar free pumpkin cake and we had plenty of whole wheat bread (Ugh!). I love turkey and this year we had one of the biggest yet. It didn’t fit very well in the huge container I use for brining. The legs were sticking out! It was an awesome turkey. Surprisingly, we have almost eaten the entire bird already. Wow!
Well, I hope to hear some updates on everyone’s fitness plans for 2009. I am putting together a 12 week challenge to go along with the launch of my new book. Let me know if you are interested!
