I'll interrupt my regular posts for a quick health update.
Bad news: My IT band continues to hurt and has asked it's friends surrounding it on both sides to join in. I don't remember the names of these small muscles, but I know they are there. I trudge on with stretching, using the foam roller and ice as needed. I know this is progress.
Good news: I was successful to the fast God called me to. I didn't eat meat for about a week. What I fasted for was answered, praise God. However, I'm not eating meat like I did before. It isn't appetizing anymore. The real test was cooking bacon for my family. I persevered and did not eat any.
On that note, I'm a pound down and I'm good with that. I tried some new strength training exercises (see bad news as to some of the results). I felt those moves for a couple days. I like them and will continue doing them, just being gentle with this body of mine.
I have a busy week, as my MIL is visiting this weekend. Our guest room is Kabingo's (the cat) room in general. I have lots of hair fluffs to vacuum up. Which also reminds me he needs another hair cut.
