Out of the Game
For the last almost three weeks now I have been put on the bench. Once you adjust to the daily high a great sweat gives you it's hard to become a couch potato again. I somehow injured myself during a workout and was not able to walk as a light workout without pain. I was able to do 30 minutes of cardio so far this week and plan to do another 30 minutes on Friday. I still have to wear the knee brace, but it's okay with me because I am giving myself time to strengthen. The other downside to downtime is you really have to watch your food intake. I rarely do any special treats now and if I do it means taking something away that day. You see when you do not move there is no way of working those calories into the negative.
