legcramps - Thursday Oct 07, 2010

Weight: 163.5

Gosh, i'm tired this morning.  Yesterday it felt like the week was whizzing right by, but today it has slowed down to an almost complete stop and is saying to me "hey... you... yeah, you... you think this'll be easy? nah... it ain't gonna be easy honey... it ain't gonna be Friday just like that just because you want it to be".

I got an e-mail at 4:30 after work yesterday from a friend, telling me that a friend of ours was in the hospital because of an asthma attack of some kind.  I figured she'd be eating dinner around that time, so I changed really quickly and took the dog for a run.  For the running portion, we went 1.5 miles in 20 minutes - 8 of that running.  We did lots of walking before and after, too.  Back at home, I cleaned up and drove to the hospital and was there for a couple of hours.  My friend had a coughing fit, couldn't breathe and so came to the hospital.  By the time she reached the hospital, she was okay again but they admitted her anyways which I think is a good thing.  But she hasn't had any tests yet, they haven't even drawn blood, so she has no idea what's going on.  She doesn't know for sure if it's asthma or if it's some sort of infection - well, I only hope she'll be alright and they'll figure out what's wrong.

Once I got back home, I realized I had to cook dinner for myself.  Blah.  By that time, I was wiped and was debating skipping the meal in favor of a bath and sleep.  But I persevered - I threw some whole wheat spaghetti on the stove, and some marinating salmon into the oven.  I wouldn't mix those two things on any other day, but it seemed like the quickest choice at the time!

I'm still coughing, but at this point they're very weak coughs because my ab muscles hurt so much from the SHRED workout!  And the coughing doesn't seem to be having an effect on my running, so i'm going to continue to take it easy this week and maybe next week kick it up a notch.

Running is on the menu for today - another easy 8 minutes (which really isn't all THAT easy for me) with the dog and the running buddy.  This time i'm going to use my Garmin GPS watch.  I bought a new charger for it, brought it to work with me yesterday to get the settings worked out, then left it there overnight!  Duh!  I should also look for my heartrate strap for my chest and use that as well.  If I find it!

That's it for tonight, but wishing I had a date for the weekend.  Plans for Friday night to play cards with friends, which is fun don't get me wrong - I just wish we could do something that involved meeting single guys!!!

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 10/07/2010:
Running is one of the most effective yet less expensive workouts out there! I'm glad you like it, and you always have a nice, willing company to join in, the dog! :) Wish I had one. But at 214 lbs I cannot afford to run. Maybe later...


KathyBlue on 10/07/2010:
216,7 lbs... I'm cheating, geeeez! :)


liza36 on 10/07/2010:
I originally read your entry as 15 miles in 20 minutes, rather than 1 POINT 5 miles in 20 minutes! Which either way is massively impressive to me!!

Hope your friend is ok. Have a good one, despite being tired. Friday can't come soon enough for me too!


chidogs on 10/07/2010:
Yes running sounds really good, but not yet for me either. That is one of the goals I have. We now have the condo in San Diego, and I want to jog on the beach! Take care! Especially of that cough.


selina on 10/07/2010:
Spagueti and salmon sound perfect! Glad your cough is getting better. Have a great weekend!


Umpqua on 10/07/2010:
I hope your friend is OK, that's a little scary. Great job with the food and running!


moogy on 10/07/2010:
I am glad the you are able to run again and that the cough is easing off. I hope your freind gets diagnosed soon. Good for you for cooking that meal after you were exhausted. That's dedication. Well done:)


Maria7 on 10/07/2010:
Your whole wheat speghetti sounded so good! How do you make it? Hope your friend is feeling better. :-) Glad you are feeling better, too.


nita51 on 10/08/2010:
I thought of you today,,,,because after walking on my new treadmill, I got leg cramps ( LOL ) I guess I have to get use to movement, all over again. Wishing your friend a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself. xoxo


just42day on 10/08/2010:
Great job w/food and exercise. I hope your hospitalized friend is doing better. Sounds like she's in the right place. Can't your friends include males in your card night?



legcramps - Wednesday Oct 06, 2010

Weight: 163.5

When I got home from work yesterday, my mom and her friend were out in my backyard, cleaning up the garden and the flower beds and everything.  It's starting to look like fall in my yard now, all the big vines are cut down, the rose bushes are just little tiny branches sticking out of the ground, and the garden is almost completely void of vegetation.  Gosh, if they wouldn't have done all that work - well, it just wouldn't have been done by me.  Yay!

I was tired yesterday.  It was a full day at work, so by the end of the day all I wanted to do was sleep.  After entertaining my mom and her friend for a few minutes and showing them around my house, I changed into my workout clothes and pushed the coffee table out of the way so I could start my SHRED DVD.  I'd forgotten how difficult this DVD is when you're first starting it.  Suffice to say, I was a big sweaty mess by the end of it.  But it felt great!

A bath, a strawberry-banana smoothie, some reading, and off to bed.

Eats yesterday - coffee, water, almond oatmeal crunch with 2% lactose-free milk, whole wheat spaghetti with baked chicken, smoothie.

Today after work I want to visit my grandpa's grave - one year today he passed, and I miss him and I miss him and I miss him.

Going running at 6 with the dog and the running buddy.  No other plans besides watching Survivor!

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 10/06/2010:
lol study group is an idea! My man does speak French but he's reluctant to help me (he's out of patience)... I have lots of colleagues who know French very well (lived in France/Canada, natives, etc.) and I bug them through emails...


KathyBlue on 10/06/2010:
"A bath, a strawberry-banana smoothie, some reading, and off to bed." Now this is a PERFECT recipe of a good day. :)


skinnygrlwithin on 10/06/2010:
I know how wonderful it is when family does stuff for you...when my mom comes to visit I'll cook and everything and the next thing I know the dishes are done and put away... it's GREAT!!!!


Umpqua on 10/06/2010:
That's awesome that your Mom helped out with your gardens - good deal! Great job with the exercises, sounds like you're finally feeling better.


biscottibody59 on 10/06/2010:
Good to see you're feeling well enough to do some good running--keep up the good work!


moogy on 10/06/2010:
Wouldn't it be great if we could exercise with all the sweating and read faces??? Good for you though, you exercised even though you were tired. Your mom and her friend sound like keepers, that's a good job out of the way. Have a good day legcramps.


just42day on 10/06/2010:
That's great that you got some exercise in! Good for you. So sorry about the loss of your grandfather. I'm sure he was very touched by your visit and is smiling down on you. Keep him close to your heart - as I'm sure you do. :)


chidogs on 10/06/2010:
You have a great Mom and friend! How sweet was that? I don't know that dvd but it sounds rigorous! Good for you. Take care. I know how you feel about your grandpa. Lost my Mom a year ago this month, but she'd had Alzheimers, so I really lost her several years before, when I lost my Dad. Be glad for the time you had with him! Hugs to you.


V on 10/06/2010:
Hey girly :) I bet you are glad to be back feeling like yourself :) Sorry about your grandpa :(



legcramps - Tuesday Oct 05, 2010

Weight: 163.5

I started the running off nice and easy yesterday.  I ran 8 minutes out of a total of 20 minutes, not including warm up and cool down.  I went 1.75 miles in about 27 minutes total.  I took my dog with me which I think went fairly well - I will be doing it again, it's great exercise for her too.

This morning my chest is breaking up and i'm coughing a little more than usual, which is giving me another headache (surprise, surprise).  I guess maybe I pushed it a little too much, but I really felt great yesterday while I was running.  Just don't feel so great today!

Eats for yesterday: coffee, water, whole wheat pasta, baked chicken, cooked carrots.  Oh, and I had some kind of pastry for a late breakfast.  It was wierd, tasted like soft pie crust.

My plan for today is to do Jillian's Shred workout before dinner.  And then get into my pj's, make a cup of hot tea, and continue reading "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime".  Hilarious book, and i'm only on page 20.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

selina on 10/05/2010:
Hi Legcramps, so glad you are enjoying your running. Your dog is probably very happy with the exercise, as well. I see lots of dogs walking with their masters/owners at the park and they all seem to have a smile on their faces, ha!

Take care of that cough and stay well!

PS. Why is your name legcramps, if I may ask? Every time I see your name, it reminds me of my pregnancy because I always had serious leg cramps during the second part of the pregnancy... I never forget that...


selina on 10/05/2010:
I love that book! My daughter had to read it for school last year, so I read it, too!


KathyBlue on 10/05/2010:
ahh have to look up that book...


V on 10/05/2010:
So glad you are feeling better :) I know how tough it is when you are struggling to get well :) Have a good day my friend :)


geevee on 10/05/2010:
Funny comment! Thanks! Hopefully my son in Orlando will treat me to more of his bagels on Thurs. You see how easily I'm led astray? There is no way I could refuse.


chidogs on 10/05/2010:
Book sounds interesting, being a Sherlock Holmes fan and recognizing the title as a play on a quote in one of the books! I will jot it down. I love to cozy up with tea/coffee/cocoa and a good book, especially if it is raining. Enjoy, and I hope you feel better.


sweetpea1977 on 10/05/2010:
Good news that the congestion in your chest is breaking up. Hopefully, you'll see an end to that crud soon!

I read that book a few years ago. Loved it!


Umpqua on 10/05/2010:
I'm glad you got the run in yesterday, and I hope that your finally getting over your illness. HOpe you are having a good one!


hollybelle on 10/05/2010:
Hope the antibiotic works it's wonders. Do you need an expectorant like Mucinex to get the crud out when you cough?


chidogs on 10/05/2010:
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Appreciate the encouragement. :)


moogy on 10/05/2010:
Maybe the running got the congestion in your chest moving, it certainly sounds like it. Take it easy though. Look after yourself. Have a great day.


nita51 on 10/05/2010:
Thanks for the encouragement, and feel better. Hot tea, xoxo


breakaway on 10/06/2010:
Great job on the exercise but hope you don't feel worse tomorrow. Have a great day!


fatgirl101 on 10/06/2010:
will lookup the book:) congrats on good run... still imagining getting to a point of running for 8 mins! i'm up to bursts of four mins at a time. keep it up!



legcramps - Monday Oct 04, 2010

Weight: 163.5

'Mornin.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes.  One more day until my prescription runs out, so we'll see what happens after that.  I can tell my cough is getting a bit better, but I really know nothing about why the antibiotics haven't cleared it up completely yet.  Day by day.

The Dog Jog went really well on Sunday.  I'm glad to say that I didn't overdo it by running the distance, instead I stayed behind and helped with other things.  It was such a beautiful day - i'm so glad I decided to head out and take part.

Other than that, just trying to get better.  I made it to the grocery store and stocked up on good foods - yogurt, fruit, etc. so I have started eating better again.  Now all I need is for the minute amount of energy I had to return to me so that I can get back to running!

Psst - I will be trying to run tonight.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 10/04/2010:
I'm glad to hear you are feeling slightly better. I hope you have a nice and relaxing day and can run again soon!


sweetpea1977 on 10/04/2010:
Im glad you are starting to feel better. Enjoy your run tonight!


jubileecoast on 10/04/2010:
Hey hope you're well - enjoy the run!


moogy on 10/04/2010:
We had a few people here that had to have two prescriptions to clear their lung infections. If you are still coughing I suggest you go back and check out whether you need a second. Your lungs will decide if you will be able to run or not, you will soon run out of puff if your body is not ready. You must be itching to get back out there. I am glad you stocked up on healthy stuff - good for you! I hope that you have a good day and get some of your usual energy back:)


chidogs on 10/04/2010:
Take care, glad you are doing better, but yes, those cough things can rebound back at you if you aren't careful and make sure it is totally gone. Healthy food, rest...repeat. :)


Maria7 on 10/04/2010:
Hope you get some rest and take good care of yourself and feel better. :-)


V on 10/04/2010:
Thank heavens you are feeling better :) I was very concerned about you girl! Try to take it easy with your workouts till you are back to 100%


breakaway on 10/04/2010:
Seems like so many are sick here...I caught it now :( You did great today :D Keep up the good work :D



legcramps - Friday Oct 01, 2010

Weight: 163.5

I need to get my head outta my you-know-what. I'm gaining weight like crazy because i'm spending all my time being sick and eating because i'm bored.  Grr!

Turning into a bit of a hermit - refusing to do things with anyone because a) i'm sick, or b) i'll get them sick.  Last night refused to let a friend visit, tonight refused to go to a friend's to play cards... the list goes on.  However, I will try my damnedest to be at our first annual Dog Jog on Sunday afternoon.  That, I must attend as i'm on the committee.  AND they're taking pics for the paper.  I like making it into the local paper, hee hee.

Still coughing and sniffling away, trying hard not to let this get me down but it's sure taking its toll on me.  And this stupid headache... anyways, i'm glad it's Friday.  Really.  I know I need to stay positive, so the positive thing about today is that after it I don't have to work for two whole days!!!!

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 10/01/2010:
awww... Hope you feel better really soon!!!


just42day on 10/01/2010:
Take care of yourself and feel better soon! Is the Dog Jog what it sounds like?


chidogs on 10/01/2010:
Getting sick is really tough on self control. Wanting comfort food is my cure all too. Be strong, it will pass soon enough. Take care.


KathyBlue on 10/01/2010:
try to drink more, maybe it will help not eating that much and cleaning out the sickness!


skinnygrlwithin on 10/01/2010:
Well you are sick so right now you have an excuse!


moogy on 10/01/2010:
I say time to start eating healthily again. It will help you get better, your body needs fruits and vegies to help it recover. I can understand that you are feeling yuccky and have a headache. Take a tablet and sort yourself out, I am agreeing with you that you need to get your head out. Come on legcramps, you can do it!! Don't undo the hard work you have put in before. Hugs to you. I would send chicken soup if I could.:)


fatgirl101 on 10/01/2010:
Hope you feel better soon:( have a lovely weekend!


Maria7 on 10/01/2010:
Hope you enjoy your weekend off! Hope you feel better! Take care!

legcramps - Wednesday Sep 29, 2010

Weight: 163.5

I went to the doctor yesterday and he put me on antibiotics for a week after simply asking if I smoked and throwing his breathing-checker-thingy quickly onto my back (serious brain fry going on today).  I dislike being so blatantly discarded.  You may be overworked, my friend, but you are not alone.  Show some (insert swear-word of choice) compassion fella!

A co-worker and former nurse here at work thinks maybe it's whooping cough since I can't get myself to stop coughing for more than five minutes at a time and am showing other symptoms as well.  I pray the antibiotic I was prescribed will be enough to get rid of any infection, whatever it may be.  All I know is that it is not pneumonia, thank goodness.

In the meantime, I am eating myself out of house and home.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 09/29/2010:
Nowadays Dr's are like that. They don't touch you if it's not necessary, and even when you think if necessary they don't touch you either... Once my man went to see a dermatologist, in jeans covering his legs and said: "I have a big red area on my lower right leg" and he didn't ask him to show, nothing... he prescribed some fancy French, 40euros/20ml cream and asked 80 euros for the appointment. Seriously... :(


Umpqua on 09/29/2010:
Sorry your doctor is like that - most of them are! I've had to search far and wide to find docs for us and the boys who are more hands on and spend time talking to you. Seems to be a lost art. I hope the antibiotics work and you are feeling better soon!


just42day on 09/29/2010:
Sorry your dr experience wasn't great but hopefully the meds will take care of things for you. I'm not surprised that you've "been eating yourself out of house and home". Eating is comforting (at least for me) so I understand the concept of eating when you're not feeling well. Hopefully you'll be on the mend soon and back on track. I know this set back is just temporary. Keep us posted. :)


sweetpea1977 on 09/29/2010:
lol, are you talking about a stethoscope? :) Man, some doctors just plain suck! I so hope the medicine he prescribed you helps. Feel better soon!!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/29/2010:
lol...his stethoscope on your back!!! lol. :-D I have brain farts everyday.

as well, i have eaten myself out of my house and home twice this week: today and tuesday. tuesday seemed more unstable...today i am looking to end the day better than tuesday and i look foward to some exercise later tonight. i may have slowed down/reversed my progress, but we continue anyways, right?!


moogy on 09/29/2010:
See, I figured a chest infection, too bad I could have written you a prescription and faxed it to you. I hope you are on the mend now and in a couple of days you feel better. Keep up with your healthy eating even if you feel like...........it will help your body mend and your mind straight. Hugs.


chidogs on 09/29/2010:
Could it be allergies. My daughter has a persistent cough now that she gets just about every year for a few months, then it goes away. But she does have allergies, and the Dr. she went to confirmed that.


V on 09/29/2010:
DO NOT get me started on Doctors!!!!! I truly think that the majority of them are ****s( sorry for anyone who finds this offensive) I was almost one (long story) You should read Thin side's entry yesterday with her oh so pleasant experience with one



legcramps - Tuesday Sep 28, 2010

Weight: 163.5

I wish this damn cold would just go away (please excuse my frustrated attempt at swearing).  It feels as if I have come full circle and am back at the beginning with sinus congestion again.  I am still coughing as well.  Gawd, I just feel crappy and I could miss work and just go home, but then nothing will get done and blah blah blah.  When I was taking Buckley's, I felt better, but now that feeling is starting to wear off and the Buckley's is not working so well anymore.  It was so great yesterday too, I could even taste the meals I had prepared for myself.  Maybe I should make a doctor's appointment.

I had a meeting last night, so I decided not to overdo it by running and then having to think afterwards, lol.  The meeting went well I think, so that was a nice change.  when I got home I had a snack of cereal and milk, then read for a bit and went to bed.  That cereal is yummy - Oatmeal Crunch with almonds and honey.  I think i'd better find something a lot less yummy so that I won't start eating it right out of the box!

Yeah.  That's about it.

I just phoned the clinic and made myself a doctor's appointment.  I think I will go home for the afternoon.  Which means I probably won't be commenting much today - so I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  Take care of yourselves!

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

V on 09/28/2010:
It sounds like you should go to the doctor whatever this bug is might need a something a little stronger than over the counter meds...I hope you feel better.


moogy on 09/28/2010:
I wonder if you have a chest infection, sometimes that happens when we have had a cough. I hope you get better soon. Rest up and hopefully our lovely legcramps will be back with us soon.


Maria7 on 09/28/2010:
Hope you feel better...try to get some rest and don't forget chicken noodle soup (especially the broth).



legcramps - Monday Sep 27, 2010

Weight: 163.5

What a week that was.

When I finally get rid of this cold, I betcha i'll feel like a million bucks.  That's such a strange saying, how can you feel like a million bucks?  I'd rather HAVE a million bucks.  So.  anyways.

On Saturday my cold finally started to break.  As of this morning, I am still coughing loudly and embarassingly, but I don't feel exhausted like I did last week.  I hope this means I am slowly recovering.  True Story - I went grocery shopping yesterday and literally made myself sweat with only a slight amount of walking and lifting.  Life.  Sometimes sucks.  I am probably not ready to start running again, but if the offer presents itself today, i'm going.  I've already given up one week, I refuse to let this cold take another one!

My mother came by yesterday and cleaned out some of the garden for me.  She was a great help - I wouldn't have had the energy for it if I would have had to do it myself.  I spent the weekend tidying the house, doing laundry and getting groceries.  I feel like I still accomplished something even though I was feeling under the weather.  I finally gave the dog a bath even - she smells wonderful now.

I ate a regular breakfast today!  Cereal with milk.

Coffee, iced tea.

pasta with cucs, carrots and pasta sauce.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 09/27/2010:
ahh I have been thinking of you! Glad to see you online! :) Ahh you're feeling better already! Me too... it is a stupid cold, caught just everyone! :-(

sweetpea1977 on 09/27/2010:
Glad you are starting to feel better! I too would rather have the million bucks than feel like it, hehe.

Be easy on yourself if you go running today. Dont worry about speed, just focus on form!


selina on 09/27/2010:
I hope you'll feel better soon. That's exactly what I had during my move: my throat got sore around the time I was in Paris and spent the whole time in London in bed, too exhausted to do anything. Half the time of the transatlantic cruise I was in bed exhausted and the other half I forced myself to do something, otherwise I'd miss the whole thing. Except that when I ventured to watch the evening performances, I coughed so much it was embarrassing, so I quit going! All I did was eat and sleep :( I'm finally over the cough, now....

I hope you'll feel better soon. If you can, take lots of rest and let nature take care of it. Time and lots of water and medicine will heal. Doctor said that stress also makes you more prone to colds. Stay cool and don't stress it, then. Stay well!


cristianao on 09/27/2010:
hey! thanx for the comment.. feel better


moogy on 09/27/2010:
I had to smile at the breaking into a sweat while shopping comment. I did that when I was sick. So glad you are starting to feel better, I hope that cough goes sooner rather than later. Please don't start running until you are breathing properly again otherwise you might get sick again. Have a good day legcramps.


just42day on 09/27/2010:

legcramps - Friday Sep 24, 2010

Weight: 163.5

I've threatened Mr. Cold with Mr. Buckley's, but he is still persisting in hanging around.  I didn't think it could be possible for me to put in so many hours of sleep in one week.  One eye keeps watering and is quite annoyingly twitching every so often, I feel feverish and have congestion deep in my chest for which I cannot get rid of no matter what I do, crappy headache won't go away, I caved and ate chips and half a block of cheese for supper last night, and I haven't been running since Sunday!  The only good news in this whole week is that i've been consistently drinking 3 litres of water each day.  Well, iced tea.

I am certainly feeling sorry for myself these days :)

I would love to say so much more, but my mind has gone blank.  Hopefully not permanently.

Hope you feel better. I've been sick myself, and I'm sick and tired of being sick! Hang in there.

You are allowed to feel sorry for yourself. You are one sick lady. Rest up, keep warm and you obviously don't need to be told to keep up the fluids.:) "This to shall pass"

legcramps - Wednesday Sep 22, 2010

Weight: 163.5

So I spent most of Monday feeling good about myself and my accomplishment.  I took the day off from running... geez, I don't think I did anything at all that evening.  I felt utterly exhausted, but figured it was just from over-exerting myself on Sunday.  Tuesday morning I woke up with a sore throat and a whole lotta muscle aches.  Caught myself a cold.

I slept hard Monday night, probably got 10 hours of sleep.  I barely got through the morning on Tuesday - I had to orientate a new employee and I just bumbled my way through as best I could.  I decided to take the afternoon off so that I could catch up on some things I haven't been doing at home, but as soon as my butt hit the couch I was asleep.  I slept from 1pm until 5pm; went to a friend's for supper and to watch some tv; then was back in bed by 11pm and woke up at 7am this morning, still exhausted and hurting!

So you can imagine what my day's been like.  I had to sit through a morning meeting, then come back to my desk where hell awaited.  My entire desk was covered with work - I am so exhausted and overwhelmed by it all I want to scream and cry and throw a hissy fit.

Apparently all it takes to throw me off course is a fever, congestion, and overall acheyness.

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 8.5 lbs to go!

I hope you feel better soon and give yourself some downtime, you deserve it!

believe me, we ALL feel like this when we are sick!!!!

you are still on a winning streak, according to me, so even though you aren't feeling well, i don't want sickness to depress you! keep a positive outlook, rest a lot and drink fluids, and you'll feel better soon!

Hey, don't be hard on yourself, you are sick. Having a cold isn't some nuisance, it can be quite debilitating. I am not suprised that you are sleeping so much, you must be exhausted. Do you not have sickleave so you can take days of to get better. I wish I could come and look after you.
