Trying to write a comment on Legcramps' page, but there is no comment area!?

exercise plan: lay off cardio still, but do all leg exercises, upper leg weights exercises & ab work.  yup.  & rest of the day on the couch. I also plan to cook, for the first time in months, just some stir fry veggies.

Happy Sunday! :)  I asked my parents if they wanted to go out to eat - but mom already has plans lol.  Someone gave me a $150 gift certificate to a good seafood restaurant by me & I was hoping to use it with my parents.

7am Big tasty breakfast: fruit 50, 1 egg, 1 egg white around 100, cooked cranberries with stevia 100?, greek yogurt 100, wrap 100 with peanut butter 200: 650, good!

9:30am: almonds and cooked cranberries, around 250, good :)

11am: pre-workout drink 50

during & after abs / upper leg workout: shake, not more than 200 cal.

2:00pm: big, late lunch: lots of cooked broccoli & cabbage 150-200, 2 servings packaged, fried tofu 250, 2 bags of veggie chips 300: around 700-750.  I was full but kept eating, was worth it, I guess, rather than binging completely, I just ate double servings to be satisfied while staying home the rest of the afternoon & night.

total: 1850 approx., good.

ended the day with 2250 calories which I am super proud of.  seems I was more tired than hungry & actually listened to my body.  I slept from 7:30pm-5:30am...I feel refreshed!

 

Progress as of today: -2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

allieoop on 01/27/2014:
Good for you to realize you needed rest instead of food! I have ate many times when I probably should have just went to bed. Thanks for writing that, so I will think next time.

Happy Saturday!  I weighed myself this AM at the gym....and surprisingly it said 127 (I did feel lighter & that's why I even stepped on the scale...happy about this)

I woke up on the early side.  Plan is definitely for early morning upper body weights routine at the gym, I want to get it completed & out of the way - but in a good way....I wanna get it done & done well!

7:30am Breakfast: 2 servings fiber one 120, 1 cup of Kashi lean 150, almond milk 40 310 or so. also a supplement (50 cal) soon to help with the weights workout, no caffeine. total 360

Snack: after gym- protein shake with 2 scoops protein and half banana around 400 cal. 750 or so.

12:30pm: Healthy, but big, lunch: 600 or so.

1350, good.

late dinner around 8pm, around 2250 cal, good day of generally healthy food!

Your food choices look great. Good job with your exercise plan. Just wondering if you've tried or consdered any alternative methods like acupuncture. I have no real experience but thought I'd ask.

I ordered an ebook.  It was $27.- and I found it online last night.  Never saw it before on the internet, actually.

It has about 12 exercises specifically to heal shin splints and claims to do it in 60 days or less. So, I will do as the author suggests, to practice these exercises EVERYDAY diligently for 60 days and see where I am at.  Honestly, I am viewing this as a good, last option.  In the previous 11 months, I was NEVER given any exercises to do, so this seems to be a good starting point right now for me as well as a good solution. 

60 days bring me to mid-march, still few months from June :-)  And to be honest, that's enough time to start preparing for the academy. Slowly start to get into running!

7:30am Breakfast: cinnamon swirl oatmeal, greek yogurt, 300.

9:00am snack: soy nut butter on a small roll: 200, and a pre-workout drink 40 (no caffeine). total around 250. good.

exercise: full weights & I was a little tired at first, but got everything done & felt good afterwards.

total calories: around 2300-2350. a bit high, but healthy.

stayed up late doing lots of NYPD paperwork.  seems that I have everything  - but have to go home again to pick up what I forgot...and one thing, I may not have in time...have to check it out again tomorrow...

Maybe this is exactly what you need! I sure hope it helps.

I'm glad the 2nd test went well yesterday. You never know, your legs may be much stronger in 6 months. In any case, you have a good handle on the challenges you may be facing and now you will just have to see how it goes. I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend!


allieoop on 01/17/2014:
Wishing you a good weekend & good recovery


thinkpositive on 01/18/2014:
A stressful week. And also the stress of your leg pain. A tough position to be in- wanting to get in but knowing that you may not be healed by June. Take care.

Another test today :)

Breakfast: 350.

process went well today. in the end though, I realize that my legs have hurt basically EVERYDAY for 11 months. either they'll get better or not in 6 months.  even if, I can reinjure them completely in the academy.  life is funny sometimes. I don't wanna stop the process, but distressed that my legs are the thing that's holding me up the most.

exercise: none except for a lil more walking than usual because I had to get a lot of errands done....including a half mile at least walk from one building to another in the same vicinity. long day, leaving my apt at 6:15 and coming back basically at 6:15pm.

calories: 1350 up to late errand to bank, 50 fruit, then salads 400?, and pb 200 on wrap 100. total: 2050. more than planned ( was gonna try to keep it extra low) but fine calories.

life is just a bit too up and down for me right now...wishing for my dream of NYPD but seeing the reality that my legs are still in bad shape.  Gonna finish the process, despite the signs pointing otherwise.

Have a good day Horn


Umpqua on 01/15/2014:
I think you are wise to heed your Dad's advice in this case RE your legs. I'm sure you will ace the Thursday test and then just take it slow and work on recovery. You will have difficult decisions to make eventually, but ultimately your body will let you know what the best course of action is. I hope you got some good rest last night!
