Exercise: None as of today yet.
I haven’t been able to blog for a while. I have been to Jerome, AZ for Valentines Day for 3 days. Las Vegas with 6 of my girlfriends for 3 days, then few off to Capitola, CA where I met my Husband and 4 Boys for the week. Wonderful vacation time, but no access to the internet for a while. So here I am, back again. Any thinner? No! Ug… a few pounds heavier in fact. A lot of drinking over the past few weeks. I was still good about my eating habits, but the alcohol and exercise have been lacking.
I have been back on track since Monday though… Monday I did 2.27 miles on the treadmill. Wednesday I did 5 miles on the treadmill and 150 crunches. Friday we rode 3 miles (I am guessing, maybe a little more) on our bikes. Today I have just been taking it easy.
My shoes have been wonderful, so I have two pairs of those now.
I got my first shin-splint on Wednesday in my right leg. It was at the beginning my my walk, so I just slowed down until it went away and kept going. The funny thing was that later that day that leg didn’t hurt it was the other leg. I must have been favoring my right leg during that time. I am great today though.
I am going to get this weight off it it kills me. I have been thinking about the B12 shots, but am just so scared to have my mood changed in any way. I make that decision if things don’t change over the next 4 weeks.
Alcohol has to slow way down though, that is extra calories that I am assuming that my body doesn’t need. It is worth a try. I am going to do more bike riding and waking outside too and try and get my Husband to join me. We ordered an attachment tandem bike for my 4 year old today, so that will help in being able to go a bit faster on family rides. All good positive things.
Ok, reading your workout plan, I need to do one too lol
LOL! I know having one and actually sticking to it is the whole thing for me. So many distractions… so many cosmos to drink. 🙂
Shin splints can be difficult to heal as long as you are walkingon streets/sidewalks. Is there a highschool/college track nearby. The mall is just as bad as the street too.
I have been walking on the treadmill only so far. I only had pain the day of and a little the next day. I haven’t walked since Thursday, but will get back in there tomorrow. I will be walking outside too. I don’t usually stretch before I walk, apparently that is BAD. I will do that from now on too. Thank you for your advice. 🙂
