    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? No
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes, way under
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes

    Pass #1

    Unfortunately, when I woke up today my hand/wrist was swollen from last night's fall. I also slept poorly because of the pain which is why I couldn't motivate myself to do the treadmill today. I iced it for a couple of hours, took an Aleve and spent most of the afternoon/evening in bed reading. I think it helped as it isn't hurting so much at the moment. I'll continue to baby it so as not to impact my vacation next week.

    @LazyBlondeChef should the doctor be examining it?

    @donna25trinity @summerskier Yes, indeed we'll see how it goes. I actually tacked on some additional damage later last night. argh. Summer, yes, I totally agree to tight a restriction could cause rebound. This is totally an experiment, and at worst I take pass #4. Should never have bought that ice cream. It was not as good as I imagined. :(

    @Smoda61 I'm not one to to see a doctor unless it's dire. And actually the pain is gone today unless I bend it in past a certain point. The swelling has also lessened so that's a relief.

    Maybe next time buy one of those tiny pint size ice creams of high quality. My partner loves ice cream so we get it maybe once a month. These days he's pretty good about eating the specified serving size but in the past he would have eaten the entire pint in 1-2 sittings. Personally I find most ice cream to sweet and too thick so rarely eat it. Prefer sorbet.

    @lazyblondchef So glad you are seeing an improvement with your knee. That is great news!

    On the ice cream, there definitely is a difference in quality between products. To be honest, that ice cream did not live up to its name or image on packaging. My favorite ice cream is a limited edition and thankfully does not seem exist anymore. It was around last summer while I was gaining weight. :P It was called "Chip Happens" - chocolate ice cream with fudge chips and a crunchy potato chip swirl.

    @LazyBlondeChef That swelling may indicate the need for an x-ray.

    @MadisonMolly2017 Yesterday, I read a review of a book by a pediatric endocrinologist who decries the twin evils of Big Pharma and overly processed food (with unhealthy doses of salt and sugar). It is called "Metabolical"
    I ordered it on my Kindle.
