And I totally realized that one thing I left out of my 2016 post was that I want to complete 3 CPCU exams this year. It will not be easy because I'm taking two of the harder tests...but I can try!
But I was right anyways! ;)
Now...on to the last days of the streak!
December 28: Physical Therapy...or not. I shoveled snow! As soon as I left work it became apparent that I would not be going to physical therapy. We had a bit of a snow/ice storm, and the roads were terrible. So I drove to Cam's house and started shoveling right away. I kept at it for about an hour before Cam came home and got the snowblower out. That one hour was hard work - practically an hour of deadlifts and squats!
December 29: I got my stretch on. I ended up rescheduling an appointment for Tuesday after work, and by the time I got home I was ready to do nothing (as is usual). So I did slightly more than nothing and both stretched, and rubbed out my peroneals. They needed it!
December 30: I had my very last PT appointment. It felt a bit anti-climatic (I'm still recovering from the tendinitis), and also bittersweet. I'm going to miss Amy a lot - she had very good news for me at my last appointment though - she's pregnant! She'd shared with me earlier that she was having trouble conceiving and then she miraculously (okay, not really) found out she was pregnant about a week after she told me. She was truly fantastic to work with, and though I have no injury plans for the future, if I happen to need a little Astym in a few months I might just find myself making an appointment...maybe...although I totally have no plans to do that...none at all ;)
Ooh! I also got a really cool t-shirt when I was discharged! Here's the back of it:

Overall: I'm glad I took on this little challenge. I had a few days where I consciously made the decision to nothing, or very little, but I'm not beating myself up about that. Things usually get to a point where resting is just as important as getting your move on, and that's what those days were for me. I leaned towards being more active all month, and I liked keeping myself accountable because some days that was what pushed me to do something, even if it was just to stretch a bit or hold some yoga positions for a few minutes.
And there you have it! Now on to 2016, where I will try to be better about posting workout recaps than I was in 2015! Given how bad I was at it every time I mentioned it last year, it shouldn't be a hard thing to do... (she said sheepisly).
