The Aftermath of Being Rear-Ended

I didn't expect to lose the 3.2 lbs I had left to reach the 100 lb goal but I did lose 1.8 lbs, which leaves 1.4 lbs to go!  TOM is creeping in so I don't expect to hit that number for a couple of weeks but you never know....

Inches Lost in July - 7.5 TOTAL!
Waist -1.5
Hips -3
Chest -1.5
R Arm -.5
L Arm -.5
R Thigh -0
L Thigh -.5
The official loss matched the amount for the DietBet so maybe things are starting to level out.

Friday will end the 4th week of  Les Mills Combat.  It's hard to believe I've already been on this program for this long!  Burpees are my enemy; almost every time they appear in the workouts I get lightheaded.  I'm not even doing their version; I'm doing the modified version learned from an earlier DVD (don't remember if it was the 21DayFix or one of Jillian's).

There are just 5 more days until the Becoming the True You DietBet starts.  I've got a handle on the 7-day squat challenge I'm doing along with it.  Each day I'll show a different type of squat and leave it up to the participants to add weight, squat deeper, jump, etc.  If the interest is there it'll be expanded to cover all four weeks of the DietBet. Now to select the 7 squats....

I was rear-ended on the way in to work this morning.  Lady said that her foot slipped off the brake.  We share the same insurance company and she admitted fault to them so everything's under her coverage.  A headache hit me as soon as she did (anything jarring me like that would cause one).  My neck and shoulders are stiff.  Unless these things worsen I don't plan to seek any medical attention.  I can't really see that my bumper was dented but it pushed up my trunk so that it looks open but it's still latched.  A reflector was broken on the bumper along with the cover on the left tail light.

The repair shop has called to schedule the estimate; they can't look at it until Monday.  I think that means Benny will have to drive me on rainy days so the water doesn't get in the trunk...that is unless he thinks of a way to cover it so he doesn't have to LOL
I just couldn't get in the 2+ miles on my walk today.  The weight of my haul in combination with my stiff neck and shoulders slowed me down.  I picked up tomatoes, zucchini, and tequila bell peppers (sorry, they don't taste like tequila).  I've done PT for my past accidents (mostly rear-enders) but wonder if they'll do a massage instead LOL.  I haven't heard from the claims rep handling the medical side so I don't know what all they'll cover.  Have you had similar damage in an auto accident?

  4. Rest(no upper body workouts) and ice the area and after a couple of days pull out your old PT exercises and start your own therapy again.

  5. Congratulations on almost reaching your goal weight! That is so awesome! I'm sorry about your accident. I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for linking up!

  6. You're doing a great job in your routine workout. I never though a transformation like that can be achieved in a total of seven days. Anyway, I'm sorry that you had to experience getting rear-ended by a clumsy driver. Accidents like that can bring out a lot of frustrating trauma, and I just hope that the aftermath had given you a more positive perspective than a negative one. Thanks for sharing that, Cassandra! All the best to you!
