Locked Up

by Lauren on November 13, 2011

So I still don’t have pictures yet from this weekend, but I will hopefully tomorrow.  Turns out I need a new cord which I am hoping I can get tomorrow to upload them.

In the meantime, I’ll just show you a small taste of some of the wonderful things I picked up from our getaway.  See if you can guess where I was and who I was with….

CVille Crunch Bread
(which tasted like cake!  Any bread that you can cut with a fork is dangerous)

If you haven’t guessed by now, you’ll get the full details tomorrow.

I spent most of the day unpacking, doing laundry and cleaning.  I did find time to sneak away to the gym for Body Pump and had the weirdest thing happen during class.

We were half way into the squat track and I was holding just as much weight as I normally do.  I started to notice an odd pain in my left elbow but tried to ignore it until the song was over.  Well with about 30 seconds left, I suddenly felt my elbow lock and I completely lost my balance and grip on the bar.  The entire bar dropped and the weights came crashing down. Thankfully, I didn’t seriously hurt myself but it was so scary.  That has never happened to me before and aside from making a complete fool of myself, I don’t think I did any real damage.  My elbow still has a dull pain which makes me think it may have been a nerve and not a muscle pull. Has that every happened to any of you?

Anyways, after my hazardous workout, I cam home and ate lunch.

Salad of Romaine, Cabbage, Beets, Apple, Roasted Sweet Potato and Asparagus, Goat Cheese, Hummus (carmel apple hummus!), Dijon 

Toly and I went to a work event in the evening which was a blast.  My company owns a suite at a entertainment complex and we get to take business clients to certain events.  Tonight, there was a hockey game so I invited a few of my clients and we enjoyed the game in the box with all you can eat and drink.  Even if you’re not a sports fan, watching a game in a suite is always fun.

Hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend!

    You were with Kath! (I may or may not have seen the post on her blog…)

  9. Oh no! I’m sorry to hear about the body pump mishap. That hasn’t happened to me, but I did get a major foot cramp once in class. That was kind of embarrassing but not toooo bad.

    PS – Salad looks super yummy!

  10. the vanilla almond butter sounds amazing!

  11. I saw on Kath’s blog you all had a really nice time together!! Glad you got to bring home some deliciousness with you too. 🙂

    I’m sorry about your elbow and your experience in BodyPump! I actually just had a weird elbow injury last week too. I’ve never had any issues with my elbow, but for whatever reason, it totally popped out of place as I was STRETCHING of all things! It hurt pretty bad, and I still have no idea what exactly happened. It was very sore for a few days, and I can still feel it a little almost 5 days later.

      Hey Ashley! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
      Yeah, such a weird thing about the elbow. I guess it just shows that no matter how in-shape you think you are, we’re never invincible. Hope yours feels better too! 🙂
