Everything is frustrating me, everything! But I will be thankful that I got through my 20 minute walk yesterday even though there was pain. Strange pain. Strange, pulling pain. I may re-evaluate soon if this doesn't let up. Before I actually start running, I might want to do the walking over again, this time doing it three days a week instead of every day. Maybe every day was too ambitious of me.

I took a nap right after eating dinner, then Dad called to talk to me about his treatment schedule. Holy Busy Batman! My Lord, this is scary. Chemo once a week, radiation every day. I will have to pour Ensure down his throat every waking minute. I am so scared for him.

Eats yesterday: coffee, yogurt and granola, chicken and brown rice with red pepper, kitkat, turkey sandwich, lemon slice.

Eats today (plan): coffee, oatmeal, turkey sandwich with brown rice and red pepper, dinner meeting (soup and sandwiches).

I will try to get my 20 minute walk in at work before the meeting - brought my runners with me so it shouldn't be a problem as long as I remember to do it!

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

~WI~ on 11/23/2011:
So many difficult situations to handle, and then having the pain of simple walking on top of it. I know how it feels. I hope you feel better and I am so glad your dad has such a loving daughter to help him through his rough time. God bless.


Kati on 11/23/2011:
Poor girl, you have so many unpleasant things going on in your life right now. It's overwhelming! I wish you to be strong and firm, keep up with the expectations, and I wish everything to go as planned!


Maria7 on 11/23/2011:
Good on the 20 min walk. :-)


V on 11/23/2011:
I am so sorry that you are going through such a difficult time :( I am so saying prayers for strength for you Legcramps!! Love you so much girl!!

Eats for Monday: coffee, yogurt and granola, chicken and brown rice, biscuits, chicken and brown rice, lemon slice.

I did my 20 minute walk last night, but it wasn't much fun. My left shin was feeling it pretty heavily and by the time I left I was limping slightly, favoring my right leg in order to get down the stairs. But I got it done and i'm still alive. Cool.

I went to bed early last night because i've been feeling tired since the weekend. Apparently I slept through my alarm this morning and woke up when I should have already been at work! I hate it when that happens; now I will be anxious for the rest of the day, thinking i'm forgetting to do things etc. I'm sure the alarm went off, I must have shut it off without realizing and gone back to sleep. There are all these things running through my brain lately; I imagine my brain and my body were both telling me that they needed an extra hour of sleep ;)

Today's eats will be: coffee, yogurt and granola, chicken and brown rice with red pepper, lemon slice. A friend gave me the lemon slice and since you can't freeze it, guess i'll just have to measure it out and have a little each day until it's gone. Poor me. I'm sure i'll also fit in an afternoon snack, but I didn't bring anything so i'm unsure as to what that will be.

Another 20 minute walk on the schedule for today!

PAIN - 3; NO PAIN - 4

Kati on 11/22/2011:
Sometimes the weather can play a bitter role in chronic pains. I bet today's walk will be better! Progress is progress, even if it's small, RIGHT???! Keep your chin up! :)


Kati on 11/22/2011:
BTW I'm taking Magnesona against the cramps and well, I don't know yet but yesterday was it's first day and I haven't experienced any cramps in the pool - so far so good, but it's too early to announce a verdict.


Kati on 11/22/2011:
LOL I eat tomatoes because they're rich in potassium (and no extra carbs like in the bananas)

grannyannie on 11/22/2011:
Thanks for the photos comments! Yes, they are mine - I often put a signature in the corner. There are so many great photographers that it's highly competitive. I just do it for my own pleasure - as a retiree. :-)


grannyannie on 11/22/2011:
Oh dear! Hope your shin feels better. The day doesn't start well at all by being late for work. Hope your day goes well anyway. :-)


biscottibody59 on 11/22/2011:
I know I've mentioned this before, but for me any kind of leg/joint pain means I need new shoes. I remember you and I had the same Mizuno model awhile back. They really turned out to be a dud for me. They fit my gait (fairly neutral/supinator), but they just didn't stand up in the end. I did end up getting one more pair because they were about 20 dollars off the original price. Each pair lasted me only about 2-3 months for walking on asphalt nearly daily.

Ignore me if I'm repeating myself on the shoes:-) I hope you get your shin issue solved--no fun when you expect exercise to make you feel good!


Umpqua on 11/22/2011:
Great job with the walking, I hope you are completely pain free very soon!


V on 11/22/2011:
I made it myself :) recipe came from Muscle and Fitness as did the rest of yesterday's dinner :) well not the wine ;) Have a good one!!


sweetpea1977 on 11/22/2011:
Good job on all the walking. I hope that your pain disappears soon!


liza36 on 11/22/2011:
You must have needed the extra sleep, but I know what you mean, I hate when that happens too. Hope you feel well rested.


biscottibody59 on 11/22/2011:
I hope it's not a stress fracture. Hang in there!

I didn't get this thing diagnosed, but I had started up jogging (after a little break--a month or something) a few years ago and I think I did too much too quickly. My shins weren't hurting at all, but one night I got into the car for a quick trip (I have a standard shift, thus a clutch) and on that leg, after I got out of the car, it felt like my shin was going to explode--but just in one small spot. I started icing it right after. I definitely quit jogging and maybe even walking (for exercise anyway). I think it was pretty inflamed for even walking any distance for about a week or two afterward. At any rate, I have luckily not felt that since.

I just wanted to relate my experience.

As for me and caffeine, as the years have passed the pros of quitting it (on a regular basis, if that's possible for me even--so far not so good) outweigh the cons.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/22/2011:
you are funnny :-) - I am just like Mikey too, I eat everything :-D

Up next are the 20 and 30 minute walks. So far, I am at 4 NO PAIN walks!

Friday I used up my 15 minutes shovelling in the backyard. I had to shovel once in the morning before work, and once again after work. I was tired after that and had no time to walk, and I figured the shovelling would make up for it. I went to a dinner theatre that evening and it was hilarious! Loved the show, and the food was good too: roast beef, perogies, tossed salad and a broccoli salad that was so good I raved about it almost the entire night.

Saturday morning I was up early and headed to church for breakfast: coffee, 2 saskatoon berry pancakes, real canadian bacon, 1 slice rye toast and some fruit. Not much selection, but it sure was good! Then I went into the city with some friends to do some shopping. I count my 15 minute walk during this time. I found all my christmas gifts except for my brother and my grandma. Wow! So early this year! I also found some things for myself: socks, cardigan, sweaters and a new pair of boots to trudge through all the snow on my way to work. Eats for the rest of the day: beef burger with sweet potato fries, popcorn, a handful of mixed snacks and a few too many whiskeys ;)

Sunday was rough. I was tired, I had an argument with Mom on Saturday evening and it rolled through my mind all night. I started the day with coffee and a toasted bagel with cream cheese.  After some more shopping (and my 20 minute walk), we went for lunch: grilled chicken, mozza cheese, regular fries. I should have gotten something other than fries but by this point I wasn't feeling good emotionally and only wanted to eat my way into a better mood. Finally made it back home, sifted through my purchases, made myself a dinner of chicken and brown rice, called Mom back and rectified that situation (for now). Then I called Dad, heard about his upcoming doctor's appointments for chemo and radiation treatments and discussed what I could do to help him out when he goes for treatments. Two more phone calls and then I collapsed on the couch with a book.

I'm tired this morning, but it's manageable. I think I will take a nap after work and then decide what to have for dinner and go for my 20 minute walk.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

Kati on 11/21/2011:
it's so good to see "COMPLETED" all the way down. You're doing great! :) Looks like you had a complete and tiring weekend. Have a nice week and pack yourself up w/ energy! Thanksgiving's coming! :)


liza36 on 11/21/2011:
Wonderful job on the walks, especially when they are pain free! Have a great day.


hollybelle on 11/21/2011:
Great job walking - yay for no pain! I am envious that you have all that christmas shopping done. I never do....


grannyannie on 11/21/2011:
Well done on your walks! Good to hear no pain! Enjoy your week.


V on 11/21/2011:
Love you girl!! Keep your head up and your wits about you!!


~WI~ on 11/21/2011:
Doing great :) glad you talked with your dad, keeping him in my prayers. Keep up the progress YAY for pain free!


Supercheese on 11/21/2011:
Geez you had a full weekend!! BUT You completed your walks which is always great!!!


hollybelle on 11/22/2011:
Well, sounded (as of last night) parents may make it - but it's 48 + hours away so anything can happen. If they cannot make it I will definitely take them some food over so they can have it whenever they want.

Ah, that massage yesterday was the cat's meow. My shoulder was very tender, but she managed to work out a lot of the strain and I feel much better today.

Went for my walk yesterday and completed 15 minutes with absolutely NO shin or calf pain!

PAIN - 2               NO PAIN - 1

I walked incredibly slowly. It was more of a stroll, really. Now I just have to work on slowly getting my speed back to where it was, which really wasn't all that fast to begin with. I have 12 more walks to work on that before I start running again. 12 more days!

It's snowing here; started yesterday afternoon and kept going into the night and this morning. I shovelled when I got home last night and got some of the snow off the roof. This morning I was back out there clearing my paths once again. I imagine after work today i'll be doing more shovelling and roof raking. Winter is going to be painfully slow :(

My eating wasn't good yesterday. A co-worker bought me poppyseed cake with cream cheese icing for dessert after lunch. I don't know how to say no once it's already been gifted. Then in the afternoon I swapped my biscuits with cheesies. But my lunch was wonderful - cream of potato soup! Warmed me right up. And dinner was good as well, turkey sandwich loaded with spinach and red pepper, with some spicy fries (the last of them) and NO SNACKING! That's two days in a row, give me a medal!

Today i'm having yogurt with granola for breakfast, spinach salad and a bean burrito for lunch, snack of biscuits and dinner will be out with friends at a dinner theatre. I imagine they'll serve things like roast beef, salad, maybe perogies or potatoes of some kind. I'll go heavy on the salad ;)

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

Kati on 11/18/2011:
Poppyseed is healthy! :) It's good to eat that from time to time. The cream soup must have been delicious indeed :). Snow, and cold weather scream for hot teas (GOOD!), hot soups (YUMMY!) and mulled wine (humm humm... :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulled_wine )! Great progress on no pain while walking. You're going to get there... we have to take our baby steps, extra patience, preservance. I do the same with my back. It has better days, such as worse ones but... one day I'll be 100% again. Or at least 99,9%.


Kati on 11/18/2011:
I just read an interesting article on wikipedia about restrictive diets. It says: "food restrictions in general may lead to hunger, cravings, food obsessions, social disruptions and social isolation" This is very true! I had/have all these synthoms and you know I've lost 130+ pounds since January 2010. One has to be careful.


~WI~ on 11/18/2011:
CONGRATULATIONS ON NO SNACKING!! And so happy to read no pain! Sorry about the snow, I am NOT looking forward to it here! Have a beautiful weekend!


Umpqua on 11/18/2011:
All your foods sound wonderful, and congrats on no snacking! That is awesome news that you aren't having pain, not so great on the snow - I know you have an even longer snowy season than we do here. I hope you have a nice weekend!


hollybelle on 11/18/2011:
I need a massage, too! YAY for no shin pain. That is so tough - you are SMART to take it slow and let those shins heal.


V on 11/18/2011:
LOL to you swapping lunches!! I used to do that all the time at school! Hey and BTW if you want to leave the snow for a few days you can always come for a visit with V :) Love ya!!


biscottibody59 on 11/19/2011:

I didn't actually complete the whole 15 minutes of walking yesterday. My legs started hurting about 7 minutes into it, and I ended up quitting at 10 minutes and 0.5 miles in. Doesn't seem like it's getting better, does it?

I even walked inside, on a nice, spongy track. Stretched beforehand but was so discouraged afterwards that I forgot to stretch after I was done walking.

When I got home I lay on the couch reading and pulled a muscle in my shoulder. God Loves Me.

I dreamt about a whole slew of people last night; they were all in the same dream together which was seriously wierd. My Grandpa was one of them, and he sat beside me at a fancy supper and told people off LOL. Perhaps that mirrors exactly what I feel like doing these days ;)

I didn't even snack last night, just had a glass of diet coke with lots of crushed ice.

Today's plan: coffee, biscuits, spicy fries, possible bowl of soup from cafeteria, apple crumble, chicken and rice. A lot of this is leftovers that I need to finish up before the weekend.

I have a massage after work and then I will do my walking. This time, i'm going to slow down and see if that helps.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

Kati on 11/17/2011:
ahh, bad luck with legs and shoulder! Well, life has it ups and downs. You'll get better! :) xoxo


Hantty on 11/17/2011:
Sorry, I din't make it myself I bought it from the canteen but it looks pretty simple to me :) I reckon if you get some chicken breast, sweet chili sauce (which you can buy in a squeezey bottle thing like ketchup comes in), and a tortilla wrap (it was a flour wrap not a corn one though it probably doesn't matter) and then mix the chicken with the sauce, place it in the wrap and fold it like you would a normal tortilla or fajita. If you don't know how to fold it then just ask but I wont put that here 'cos this is already a very long message. Sorry if this doesn't help at all but I hope it does :)


biscottibody59 on 11/17/2011:
Hope you have a good day there!


~WI~ on 11/17/2011:
Massages are proof that God DOES love you :) I hope they figure out what is going on very soon and get you some relief..poor lady!


liza36 on 11/17/2011:
I'm sure the massage will help tremendously with your sore and pulled muscles. Enjoy it!

Enjoy your well deserved massage <3

When I got home from work, I changed quickly and did about 10 minutes of stretching. Then I went for my walk outside and boy was it cold out! Urgh, I hate winter! Beyond that misery, I also had some shin pain. Some? Well, almost the entire walk. But I persevered and made it 0.8 miles in 15 minutes. Another 10 minutes of stretching after that didn't help me one bit.

Then I made myself chicken and potatoes for supper and had a snack of cheese and crackers later on while reading yet another V.C. Andrews book. Boy, those books sure are strange. Anyways.

I guess i'll bring out my compression socks at some point and see if that helps the shin pain. Today i'll head to the multiplex to walk inside; maybe that will help as well. I know I know i'm being a negative old coot right now!

Yesterday I had plain coffee, tea biscuits, salad and potato casserole, chicken and potatoes, cheese and crackers. Go CARBS!

Today plan is plain coffee, tea biscuits (I still have many left!), 1/2 turkey wrap and butternut squash soup, big tossed salad for dinner. No cheese left in the house, so my snack is undetermined but you can bet i'll find something to eat ;)

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 11/16/2011:
Thanks for comment! There are many beautiful places to hike in Scotland. Hope your shin pain goes away soon. Pain can really screw up our workouts!


V on 11/16/2011:
LOL!! You are so not a negative old coot!! Hahaha...Yeah the vC series kinda makes your skin crawl with all the incestuous relationships.. I had lots of fun yesterday but GOD help us all if Nicky ever became the "po po" He makes ya lay with your face to the ground when he cuffs :( hahaha Have a good one girl!!


Maria7 on 11/17/2011:
Hope you feel better. Your chicken and potatoes sounds delicious! (Also the cheese and crackers. :-D) Take good care of yourself and stay warm.



legcramps - Wednesday Nov 16, 2011

Weight: 167.0

New Plan:

I just got back from the doctor's office, who advised me to start a running program again, but slow it up a LOT. So, that's what i'll do. He said if I endure any shin pain to come back and he would have x-rays taken. I don't know why he didn't bother doing that now, but whatever. I will not ask questions. I will determine instead to do this as SLOWLY as I possibly can, so that if there is still pain there will be no way it could be me doing things too fast or too often.

You will have to bear with me; there won't be a lot of exercising to begin with. I set up an 18 week program (that's right! over four months!) to ease my way back into running.

Cross training in-between won't be anything to be amazed at either; I will be choosing activities which won't impact my legs - Zumba is over for me. Bring on pilates and yoga. Weightlifting? I hate weightlifting, but it might have to be an option for me. Which means i'll have to lift with the damn muscleheads at the gym. Yippee.

I will really have to watch my diet as I won't be losing any weight from exercising :(

This week:

Tuesday - 15 minute walk

Wednesday - 15 minute walk

Thursday - 15 minute walk

Friday - 15 minute walk

Saturday - 15 minute walk

Sunday - 20 minute walk

These walks will be brisk ones, no lollygagging unless my shins start to hurt. Maybe i'll take up speedwalking. Apparently there's an olympic event for the sport...

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!


legcramps - Tuesday Nov 15, 2011

Weight: 167.0

Monday:

- 2.5 mile walk

- mocha, biscuits, casserole, chicken, cheese and crackers

Once the crackers are finished and out of my house, no more. I'm sure that's what is contributing to my weight gain. Also, the biscuits aren't helping either. Oh hell, let's just say it's pretty much everything on my menu.

Neither is the stress of course. Got bad news yesterday and right now I just hate everything in life. I'm handling it well. As long as I don't think about it.

Progress as of today: 8 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

biscottibody59 on 11/15/2011:
I hope the stress abates somewhat--take care of yourself!


Umpqua on 11/15/2011:
Take care xoxo


getmebackto150 on 11/15/2011:
Crackers have always been one of my foods that I cannot stay away from and ALWAYS eat too much of... I now keep them out of the house, hopefully that will help you too! Thinking of you!!


V on 11/15/2011:
Sorry about your bad news :( Please take care, love you <3 <3 <3


liza36 on 11/15/2011:
I just went through the same thing with pita chips. They are now gone, never to return to my house!

I'm sorry for your bad news. Take care of yourself.


~WI~ on 11/15/2011:
Anytime I'm stressing or sick, I down carbs like there is no tomorrow. In the form of breads, cake, chocolate, etc. If it is a carb, it isn't safe when Im down. Saying prayers for you.



legcramps - Monday Nov 14, 2011

Weight: 165.5

I haven't heard anything from Dad yet. I hate to push him by constantly asking if he's gotten his results, so I will wait until tomorrow and if I haven't heard from him I'll call. I hate this waiting stuff! I'm not a patient person at all!

This weekend I felt like I had regressed back to my 20's when I partied far too much and got into way too much trouble. I hosted my Christmas Party on Saturday night. Everything was going great - we ate our potluck meal (potatoes, chicken, ribs, beef burgers, salad), exchanged gifts (I got some CFL winter gear), exchanged our baking and chatted away comfortably as old friends normally do. We chose our songs to go carolling with, had our designated driver, and off we went. We managed to get to two houses and were driving to the third when we got pulled over! Unfortunately, everything would have been fine if the vehicle we were driving wouldn't have been flagged for expired insurance!

What a bizarre situation - the insurance is paid monthly and went through in the middle of October, then it was suddenly cancelled at the end of October. No letter, no phone call, nothing! So the driver was ticketed ($580!) but the officer thought she could fight it and get it thrown out. Oh, we all felt so bad for her as it will go on her license (point system).

I ate fairly well over the weekend but didn't get too much exercise in. On Friday I cleaned the house and did some laundry, Saturday I went for lunch with a friend visiting from another province, then had the party. Sunday I spent reading and watching episodes of Merlin and just hanging out on the couch.

Tonight i'll be walking again with a friend, hopefully a few miles. Then tomorrow I have my doc appt to hopefully get tests to see if I have any injuries with my shins. Then Wednesday is Zumba, Thursday I have a massage scheduled, then it will be Friday! Hopefully a full week means it will go by quickly, and hopefully there will be news from Dad by the end of the week.

Progress as of today: 9.5 lbs lost so far, only 10.5 lbs to go!

Kati on 11/14/2011:
Christmas party already??


grannyannie on 11/14/2011:
Hope all is well with your dad and that your week goes well.


sweetpea1977 on 11/14/2011:
Man, sounds like you had a blast this weekend. Im glad, you deserve it!!

You got a lot planned for this week. Enjoy your class and massage!

I hope you get good news on your shins and dad. Keeping you in my thoughts!


Umpqua on 11/14/2011:
Sounds like a fun weekend except for the ticket part. I hope your friend can get it excused, sounds like it's the insurance company's fault and maybe they can back her up? I'm thinking of you and your Dad.


V on 11/14/2011:
You know i thought of you today as i did laundry..The radio station that was on at the Mat was all about Christmas carols..I mean non stop back to back like it was Xmas eve...hahaha :) Hey thanks for joining my site, not sure if you know this or not but make sure you log in your workouts in the "Super Gym" they give away 500 bucks a day for just logging in workouts..Oh and did i mention it doesn't have to be a beachbody workout?? Anyhoo have a good one girl :)

legcramps - Thursday Nov 10, 2011

Weight: 165.5

I'm doing good today. Knock on wood! Remembrance Day holiday is tomorrow so a short work-week! My eats so far today: bagel, mocha, stuffed pita, carrot cake (oops). I should be full until dinner now and have chicken and brown rice planned for that.

Later tonight i'm heading to a friend's for our Dog Park Celebration Party :) we finally got the fence built and the park has been in use since Monday! Other than a few alterations required in the spring and a few necessities for the park (garbage cans, poop bags) we are finished! I am glad, not only with having a functioning off-leash area but also that it was a weight on my shoulders that I was having a hard time balancing with everything else.

I am waiting impatiently for a call from Dad as they've found a tumor in his esophagus. Biopsy results are still pending. Please, once again, send your prayers my way that this comes to a postive outcome. There is no way on God's green earth i'll be able to handle another diagnosis of cancer.

Progress as of today: 9.5 lbs lost so far, only 10.5 lbs to go!

Congrats on getting the park finished! I am thinking of you and your father xoxo

Sorry you dad has a tumor. I hope the report is as good and they can fix him up in a short while. My dad is very ill with colon cancer, as I have mentioned several times here. It's hard to see parents decline in their older years. Praying for the best for you dad.
