My Beachbod-a-thon Suspended

My Beachbod-a-thon will be suspended for a couple weeks while I try to heal a beat up arm. Last week I went in for the annual physical, and the girl who took blood tapped a different vein than the little one inside the elbow - and she must have been using a bendy straw instead of a needle, because it was brutal. A day later my entire elbow was black and blue... internal bleeding. It's slowly turning to black, blue, yellow and green. But as I was going to stop with the Beachbod-a-thon, I muscled through another week even though it was painful.

The pain has only gotten worse, so I think in the process I pulled a muscle or two in that region. I'm not sure if you can see it in this photo, but the color is dark, and the pain is significant!

So I am going to suspend my DVD per day promise for a couple weeks. (It doesn't hurt that this will also coincide with my honeymoon I suppose.) But the truth is, I need to heal this thing so when I get to the P90X phase of the Beachbdo-a-thon I can do the pull ups. I hope the healing helps so I can get back to it by the 24th of April.

Too bad... I was just starting to get good a Yoga Booty Ballet. I'll be back though!

Man, that sucks. Hope you heal quickly. I hate getting my blood drawn b/c my veins are so tiny and they constrict when you're scared, which I always am because they usually have to stick me between 4-6 times to get anything. Needless to say, I sort of feel your pain. -Gen

Oh, I hate getting my blood drawn with a passion... I'm sorry to hear it went so poorly for you that you've had to take an exercise break... That being said, it might be your body just forcing you to stop because you will be on your honeymoon!!!
Congratulations by the way!
Finally, you are documenting your BB marathon on video right?
