legcramps - Thursday Apr 23, 2009

Wednesday after work I was supposed to run with BF's sister, but she bailed on me and opted to spend time with her BF instead.  So instead of run/walking, BF and I took the dogs for a half hour walk.  It was really nice outside, minus the stupid wind of course.  Our cockapoo had just gotten shaved and I think she was really feeling the heat as she kept looking for mud holes to hide in.  Yuck.  I'm glad it was BF's turn to give her a bath!

I had a meeting Wednesday night, so we didn't do a whole lot of anything else besides the walk and the meeting.  I was so tired, but still managed to stay up reading until about 10:30pm or so.

Went for a half hour walk again this morning with a friend.  My shins hurt.  I think I should try putting extra support inside my runners, i'm sure i'm overpronating when I walk and that's why i'm getting shin splints.  Anyways, another day of exercise - CHECK!!

I think badminton is supposed to be tonight at 7:30pm.

April exercise - 13.5 hours

Monday I went run/walking - half an hour.  Tuesday morning a friend and I went for a walk before work, that was also half an hour.  I like to do things in half-hour spurts, apparently!

Tuesday after work I went over to BF's sister's place and we ran for half an hour.  No, we ran/walked for half an hour.  I couldn't imagine running for half an hour.  I would have passed out.  It was fun though, we went to a small hill in the park and ran up and down it, over and over, until I was ready to throw up.  That didn't feel great, but all in all it was a good workout!

This morning my friend and I walked for half an hour again before work.  I'm tired though, the early mornings are starting to catch up with me and i've only been doing it for two days!  Although, I was up quite late last night so that might be why.

Sorry I haven't been commenting or writing a whole lot in my entries.  It's been busy here lately.  I'm finding myself with less and less time to devote to the computer, but I will try harder!

April exercise - 12.5 hours

Friday we took the dogs for a half hour walk, and then just hung out at home and watched a movie.  Saturday BF and I went out.  First I went to a friend's house and played cards for a few hours.  Then BF showed up and wanted to go out, so we did.  Then we walked home.  I'm counting that as half an hour exercise for Saturday.

Sunday morning I walked back uptown - there's another half an hour!

Today I am supposed to be running.

April exercise - 10.5 hours 

nimony on 04/20/2009:
Great job on the exercise so far this month! I'm trying to get in 60 minutes a day, but seems like there aren't always enough hours in the day. You're doing great.

thinnside40 on 04/20/2009:
You have been busy getting in some calorie burn.... Everything counts and is better than just sitting!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/21/2009:
not bad. sounds like some fun social time too! :)

It was not pretty outside last night.  I had a family function to go to as well, so I didn't get a lot of exercise.  When I finally made it home, I walked around a bit, did laundry, the dishes, picked up in the living room, ran up and down the stairs.  It took me half an hour to do everything, so i'm going to count it as a half hour of exercise for the night, simply because I want to.  Besides, I hardly ever clean the house so this was definitely not part of my normal routine... not that my house is in constant disarray.  We just have other priorities.

At least today it isn't raining outside - yet - so there is a possibility of doing some exercise outside.

April exercise - 9 hours

Went for a walk last night with BF and the dogs.

I don't know what kind of exercise i'm going to get today.  It's cold and windy and rainy outside and i'm not too hell-bent on being out there.

What to do, what to do...

April exercise - 8.5 hours.

It was Easter weekend, so we were incredibly busy during the four days off of work.  I was wishing I didn't have to come back to work today, but alas, you cannot win the lottery without buying a ticket...

Thursday night I went to badminton - 1.5 hours.  It was okay.  This week it will be cancelled because of the easter holidays, so I may have to find something else to do.  I am thinking of challenging BF to a game of basketball at the park.  I betcha I would win...

Friday did my run/walk combo for half an hour.  It was so muddy outside I had to leave my runners on the front step at home because they were absolutely covered in mud.  And I jarred my left foot while trying to run through the mud, so it hurt almost the whole rest of the day.

Saturday I think we took the dogs for a walk.  I can't remember, but I know I did half an hour of exercise because I gave myself a sticker for that day!!  Anyways, we also went to church and then I went to the Easter dance that is held annually in our town.  Maybe I counted the exercise as dancing...

Sunday I did another half hour walk, then spent the rest of the day driving from house to house eating.  Oh boy, did I eat.  I, um... well, I don't even know what to say.

Yesterday we took the dogs for a walk (I counted half an hour of exercise but I think it was more) and went to visit my Dad.  He is doing much better and is now watching more closely what he eats.  In the next few days he will begin walking again on the treadmill at the gym, where he can monitor his heart rate.  I am throwing information to both him and my brother regarding hypertension and heart disease.  The more we know, the better prepared we will be in the future.  I'm sure they're getting sick of my e-mails!

I am hoping to do a run/walk tonight after work.

April exericse - 7.5 hours.

Umpqua on 04/14/2009:
Yay for getting exercise in over the busy weekend. And I'm sending warm sunshine vibes your way!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/14/2009:

I walked home on Tuesday after work, then went for another half an hour around the neighborhood on a run/walk combo with a friend.  Tuesday night I learned that my Dad had gone into the hospital, so yesterday I drove up to visit him and didn't get home until around 9pm.  Then I went to a friend's place to help her make cabbage rolls and got home around 11pm.  So, no exercise yesterday.

Today I am planning another half an hour after work run/walk combo outside.

I was quite worked up after hearing about my Dad being in the hospital.  He had gone in early Monday morning.  By the time I received the call and drove up there, he was already being released from the hospital with strict instructions to start living a healthier lifestyle.  So, we both have some work to do and we may as well do it together (or at least as much as possible!).  So i've planned some walks that we can do together and I told him that he'd better start training!  I also instructed him to make an appointment with a nutritionist to prepare meal plans.  I sure hope it helps - this was quite a scare for everyone involved and we certainly don't want it to happen again.  It's very unfortunate that it isn't in our human nature to be proactive, but at least we can say that he will be okay and that there are steps we can take to prevent this from happening in the future.

I also have badminton scheduled for tonight.

April exercise - 4 hours

Have a great weekend!

gigi43 on 04/09/2009:
God luck to you and your dad! You both can do it, especially together.

thinnside40 on 04/09/2009:
crampy legs ~ My dad had a scare too, not hospitalized for the sugar levels, but got his results back form bloodwork... He startes walking a year ago after he saw how dedicated I was to my new way of living..He now has went down about 25-30 pounds and takes my mom with him on 4 miles walks every day... With her memory troubles, he isn't comfy leaving her home alone...She has enjoyed it and the time they spend together just walking has got to be some of the most precious time my dad will be able to refelct upon when the worse days come to fruition in her dementia/alheimers diesase.....

It is awful that most people (me included) decide to take care of the body due to a "scare", but sometimes that is necessary and God has given the opportunity to change the ways.... Very gracious!

Have a good evening...Happy badmintoning.....

biscottibody59 on 04/09/2009:
Thanks always for your well wishes! I appreciate it!

You're doing great with your exercise there--also sounds like a nice plan for you and your dad!

WI_HashiHypo on 04/09/2009:
I am happy that you and your dad will be able to work on things together! YAY!

Umpqua on 04/10/2009:
Sorry to hear about your Dad, but that's great that you have a health and fitness buddy now. I wish I had one!

I walked for half an hour last night, and walked to work this morning (another half an hour).  I am staying for lunch, then will walk home after work for a total of 60 minutes of exercise today at the very least.

It was really cold today...

April exercise - 3 hours

thinnside40 on 04/07/2009:
Good for you!.... Cold weather walks are sometimes enjoyable..Aren't they? ; - )

loveray on 04/07/2009:
thats awesome! the more you walk the better, right?! xoxo

Umpqua on 04/07/2009:
Congrats on the walking :) I know you said you were exaggerating in your last post, but it's been butt cold where I live for months too, and it doesn't make walking much fun. And walking with 2 babies? Forget it. So I commend you!

nimony on 04/07/2009:
Excellent job on all the walking, leg! You're truly an inspiration to us all. Keep up the pace and you'll be sooooo very proud of yourself! Good job!

Oh for goodness' sake, if my head wasn't screwed onto my neck... I wonder sometimes if there's even one brain cell left in it.  Okay, enough ragging on myself...

I, uh, cleaned over the weekend.  Yeah.  Oh, and I, uh, did some laundry.  Yup.  I remember one cup of coffee, but it wasn't warm when I drank it, it was already cold.  Well, luke warm.  I took a nap on Saturday afternoon... danced a little in the evening.  Got my hair cut on Sunday.  That's about it.

Whatever.  I'm telling everyone what I did, but that's it.  The weekend is over and there are no re-do's.  And I won't make myself feel bad about it, I do enough of that already!  I cleaned, and that was exercise.  I danced, and that was exercise.  I didn't over-eat, and that's very positive for me since the weekends are my bingeing days.  I'm back at work today and back in the groove and that is what matters to me.

Gotta run today though.  I don't care if I do it on the icy streets outside in the chilly -8 celsius wind.  I gotta run, so if i'm too scared to go to the gym by myself, I gotta do it on the streets, in the rain and sleet and through the dangerous and dark neighbourhood.  Under the overpass.  Weaving around to avoid the nasty traffic congestion.  Through the mice-infested junkyard in the middle of town.

Ok, so i'm kidding.  It isn't raining and there's no sleet.  The neighbourhoods are pretty decent, without any overpasses or traffic.  Our junkyard is on the outskirts of town.  But you WERE feeling pretty bad for me, weren't you?!!
