The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Well, no training for a while. I went for my hike yesterday and encountered a very large rattle snake. Luckily I didn't get bit, but I had to jump down a hill to get out of the way, and I sprained my ankle pretty bad. A friend of mine carried me down the mountain about 3 miles on his back. My ankle is huge and I probably won't be able to walk for at least a few more days. I attached a pic.

    I took some time off cause I train alone for the most part and I couldn't walk. That injury turned out to be much worse than my doctors thought at first. Once I could limp a little I did some upper body. I have been training for the last month or so, I have just been neglecting my journal.
