Too Much, Too Soon

by Courtney on September 14, 2010

For the past few days, my foot has been feeling really good. Very minimal to no pain, and I’ve been able to complete probably 98% of any exercise I’ve attempted (even though they’ve all been fairly low impact). With that in mind, I decided to switch up my routine at the gym this afternoon with a BodyAttack class. I hadn’t taken a BodyAttack class since the end of April, so I thought it would be a nice change of pace.

About halfway through, I started to feel some discomfort, but I told myself I was fine. I actually pushed myself through the entire hour long class, which probably was not my smartest move. :roll:

Too much too soon my friends, too much.

I really should have listened more carefully to what my body was trying to tell me, but I fell victim to the pressures of being in the middle of the class; I didn’t want to be the girl who has to up and leave halfway through the class. Obviously, that was stupid for me to even consider, but it definitely crossed my mind. Plus, the instructor is so completely motivating (she is phenomenal) that my adrenalin was pumpin’ and I didn’t want to leave!

Luckily this time, I know I’ll be fine. Yes, it’s a little more sore now than it was…I have myself to blame, and I’ll make sure to keep it a little more low-key. Lesson learned.

I guess I’m not too good at this waiting it out thing… :oops:


After getting home and showering, it was time to get somethin’ in my belly! After scrounging around the fridge and freezer, I came up with a pretty killer bowl ‘o goodies.

I started out with this…


Added a crumbled up one of these


And came up with THIS!


I also threw in some leftover corn too…I thought it’d add some pretty color to the mix. ;)


I must say, I was quite impressed with how it turned out. Very tasty! And better yet, done in about 5 minutes…WOOT WOOT! :-D


I also had the other piece of Dill Wheat bread that Kate gave me from Sunday. Sooo yummy! Again, I have bread machine envy…


I gotta say, I am beyond giddy this evening…one of my favorite guilty pleasure shows, One Tree Hill is coming back on tonight!!!! (I didn’t even know if it was coming back at all!?!)


So if you need me, that’s where I’ll be…vegged out in front of the boob tube watching my show. :)

Question for the Night:

What TV shows are YOU looking forward to coming back (or starting up) this season??

Along with my One Tree Hill, Jay and I are wicked excited for tomorrow night’s ABC line up: In The Middle, Modern Family, & Cougar Town. It’s an hour and a half of non-stop laughter! :-P

I love how fast & easy that dinner looks to throw together–I always like using frozen veggies as a base to a shortens it up a bit!

i’m so guilty of doing too much too soon too! it’s tough sometimes to sit out things you really want to do! not fair. i hope your foot feels better soon, i’m sure you must be getting frustrated.
i used to adore oth but i stopped watching it after lucas and peyton left the show. i’m sure it’s still good but…it’s just not the same in my eyes. i was so excited to find out yesterday that gossip girl was back on! SUCH a guilty pleasure! i love that show! made me one very happy girl yesterday :)
