legcramps - Friday Aug 31, 2012

Weight: 166.0

Well CRAP. CRAPPITY CRAP. CRAP. At least it's Friday!

I went to Grandma's yesterday for dinner - she fed me stuffed squash, grilled chicken and cucumber salad. What a smart and healthy gramma! And then we had lemon cupcakes for dessert

I brought squash leftovers home so that's what i'll be having today for lunch. She also gave me a giant squash to cook however I want, and a big bag of cucumbers that i'm going to slice into cucumber salad after work today. My backpack was pretty heavy during the walk home!

After reading for about 5 seconds, I fell asleep on the couch.

This morning has been rough ever since opening my eyes and realizing that I was still on the couch.

I had some trouble getting up. I squished myself into such a wierd position when I was sleeping that it was literally difficult to unwind myself in order to get up off the couch. Finally, I managed to, then proceeded to limp and drag my way to the bathroom to change for Insanity. In half an hour I was able to slowly get my workout clothes on, prep my Glutamine drink, and tie the shoelaces on my runners before "pressing play" on the workout.

I got through the warmup. Today was Cardio Power & Resistance and the warmup was awesome. I was loving it! I was pumped up! Life was good!

Then we stretched - all good. I had some water and nearly threw up. Uh-oh, what's going on?

We started power jumping. Okay, THEY started power jumping and I watched. The remainder of the workout was spent like this: try, try, stop, watch, drink water, feel sick, try, try, etc.

Also? My SHINS were so sore! I want to try another run tomorrow morning, but I don't know how i'm going to accomplish that if my shins won't play along.

I still walked to work because i'm stubborn like that. I feel okay right now, but we'll see how the day plays out. Maybe I caught a bug or something. That would explain why i've not gotten over my jetlag yet.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

liza36 on 08/31/2012:
Hopefully you'll feel better and it's not a bug. So, how are you going to cook the squash? Have a great weekend.

grannyannie on 08/31/2012:
Hope you feel better and get some energy. Have a good weekend.

V on 08/31/2012:
I wish I could accompany you to your Nana's you think she would fill my backpack with goodies too?? That would be RAD (yep I just said that) I hope your shins are good to go for your run tomorrow. <3 Have a great weekend!

Bikiniwax85 on 08/31/2012:
Lol.. love your post very humorous at least to me it is! :D Always feel good after a work out as well. I always feel like i'm "all that" lol.. I hope the jetlag will go off soon!

legcramps - Thursday Aug 30, 2012

I should have brought some advil to work with me this morning...

After work yesterday I made myself a snack size cheese and crackers (score for portion control!) using triscuits and mozza cheese, the gentlest cheese on my stomach. Then I alllllllmooooost fell asleep. I did not insert toothpicks because I didn't want to go blind, so instead I drove downtown and got a couple packs of my current favorite beer, NewCastle Brown Ale. I plopped four into a cooler, and headed over to the BBQ.

They made chicken and beef burgers, so I had chicken and some pasta salad that was so delicious I could have eaten the entire bowl. Thankfully, I stopped after a 1/4 cup because I knew I had some beer to drink LOL.

I didn't think i'd finish four beer, but I did. As well as half a bottle of Motts Ceasar. I didn't particularly like the way it tasted, so i'm not sure why I drank half the bottle. Probably because i'd already had four beer?

Anyways, I flew into bed when I got home late last night, and this morning was here in the blink of a very bloodshot eye.

You'll be about as surprised as I was to learn that I still got up and did a yoga workout that V sent me. With bloodshot eyes. In the dark because there was a power outage in town this morning. And then I walked to work. I know, I know, I don't even recognize myself LOL.

Tonight I have dinner with Grandma and then i'm going home and avoiding the rest of the beer that's in the fridge.

If I walk into a desk at work today, it will be for a whole other reason than simply because i'm clumsy. My brain is trying very hard to focus, but it's not going well.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 08/30/2012:
hehe sounds like u had a good day :).. great job! i might have to try this beer, dont think ive seen it before. hope u have a great day!

grannyannie on 08/30/2012:
OMG! I find that after 4 beers almost anything tastes good! Well done for getting up anyway and doing the yoga!

RYC thanks, that makes sense. But I have to have set limits. I know I can't trust my own judgement as far as food goes. I can raise the limits but I have to count the calories or I'm in trouble.

liza36 on 08/30/2012:
Impressive you did a workout!

V on 08/30/2012:
Hahahahahahaha :) I love your recap from last night :) I am assuming that Motts Cesar is Cider and Clamato Juice?? Or is Motts a vodka? If it was indeed Cider, yes you were prolly buzzed...LOL No worries my friend, your flexibility will improve with each class.. Skip is hilarious BTW, he is the only one that bitches to Chalene in the videos..My fave line of his "This is EXtreme Chalene" Hahahaha..Hope you have a good evening and this is a preview of Overtime

Boy, my calves are killing me.

This morning I had some trouble getting down the stairs to the bathroom, so I decided to swap insanity classes and I did the cardio recovery class today. I know it wasn't much and didn't make me sweat the way I was hoping to sweat today, but I think I needed the extra stretching. I also have stretching on the calendar for tomorrow morning; two straight days of stretching and i'm hoping my calves will feel a bit better afterwards. We'll see!

I'm pretty sure i'm doing everything else I need to for recovery - drinking lots of water, getting my protein levels in for each day. It really doesn't help that I sit all day long at work in front of a computer, but I try to get up every two hours and move around a bit.

In the end, it's possible that my glutes just aren't strong enough to put up with all the pounding i'm putting them through. I remember during my first phase of insanity that I felt like this for the first couple of weeks and then the soreness wasn't quite so bad, so maybe I just need to pull through for a while and suck it up.

I walked to work again this morning. Last night I managed to fall asleep on the couch right before having to leave for the dinner I had planned, so I missed it! I don't know if it's jetlag or what, but GEEZ I just yearn for sleep these days LOL. No problems getting back into THAT routine haha!

Tonight I have a friend's BBQ to attend. I am going to insert toothpicks into my eyes when I get home after work.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 08/29/2012:
Hope your calves feel better. I stretch any time I've done cardio, especially the bike. You're doing great.

V on 08/29/2012:
I sent you the yoga class :) Please don't insert toothpicks in your eyes, you could go blind ;) LOL Have a good one crazy girl!

My calves are sore from the insanity class yesterday, but it still felt good to walk it out on the way to work this morning. My exercise today is walking to work and home. A down day!

I'm still trying to get back into some kind of a routine; yesterday I was so tired by 6:30 pm that I went upstairs to bed! Aside from some thrashing and clawing at pillows, I managed to sleep until morning.

I already feel tired so I think it's probably from getting a little too much sleep through the night. If I can manage to, i'd like to get the grass cut today after work. Then I have a retirement supper to attend at 6pm, so here's hoping I don't fall asleep before I get there!

Putting in some effort today at work to get some files off my desk. Coming back after three weeks off is terribly difficult!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 08/28/2012:
Well done on the workout! Don't know if you stretch afterwards but it will cut down on the soreness. You must have been exhausted to sleep for so long! Guess you needed it. Hope you have enough energy for the party tonight.

V on 08/28/2012:
I am sure you might still have a bit of jet lag from your trip.. yeah def add an extended stretch after your classes..Too bad that you don't have relief class(Asylum) This one really is a true stretch class 25 minutes(no pushups, no jumping, no squats) It is like a body snatcher took over..At first I was like WTF? this isn't Shaun..LOL Anyhoo I don't know how you feel about yoga but I have a 20 minute You Tube class I could send your way via fb that might help :)

Hopefully you put a huge dent in your files today <3 Have a good one!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/29/2012:
I hope you put a dent in your files too! welcome back! :-)

Good Monday Morning Peeps!

I was up at 4:45 am this morning, so I managed to get quite a bit accomplished. I did the Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit class, showered, ate a very filling breakfast and drank my Glutamine, got ready for work, and WALKED to work! Sounds like a full day already LOL.

I got to work early as well, so I was able to plow through my growing pile of e-mails and just got finished with them now. Thought i'd take a break to log on here and see how you're all doing to start off the week!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

V on 08/27/2012:
Nice going with the early wake time! Even betta, i like that you chose Plyo as your first class(or are you following the schedule?) I can't wait to do round 2, i have 15 more days in the Asylum and then it's on! (well after a 2 week break as suggested by Shaun T) Asylum def lives up to it's name, it takes a mad man to do this...LOL

grannyannie on 08/27/2012:
Wow. You woke up with fully charged batteries! You go girl!

hollybelle on 08/27/2012:
Wow - early riser you are! Good start to the week for you!

V on 08/27/2012:
RYC, your plan sound like a good one to me :) I am sure you will rock it out again!! Hurrah

Out for an almost two hour walk this morning; it is so windy and cold here! I hate it, it means winter is approaching :(

I should probably do some yardwork today, but i'd rather watch 5 hours of Big Brother that I missed while I was away on holidays ;) so we'll see which one wins out! I also have a brand new Janet Evanovich book to read. Last day of holidays and back to work tomorrow so i'd better make the best of it.

Have a great day all! And congrats to V for graduating the Insanity Program! We rock! I'm starting back on it tomorrow morning!

Back from my trip and happy to report that I did not gain weight! It was from all the walking we did i'm sure.

Went for a run this morning and now just putzing around the house until I meet with friends later to catch up.

Max Plyo Interval class has been accomplished! I have one more class - Core Cardio and Balance - to fit in tonight and then i'm done Insanity!

After work yesterday I did Cardio Abs class and then was feeling a little ill so I took a break on the couch. Once I started feeling better, I got all the waxing supplies ready and started cutting up some cheese for snacks. My friends arrived and we got started; I don't think we were done until close to 10pm.

After everyone left, I cleaned up so that I wouldn't have to do it today, then read a book for an hour or so.

I woke up with bloodshot eyes once again. I just need to leave on this trip already, the anticipation is driving me nuts

I came in early to work this morning so hopefully i'll be able to leave a little earlier so that I can get my insanity class done, do a final prep for the trip, plus read and take a hot bath before bed. I want to be as relaxed as possible tonight so that I can get some sleep!

Breakfast this morning is coffee and gingerale.

Lunch will be salad and chicken wrap.

Snack is chocolate pudding.

Dinner will be chicken wrap and whatever else I still need to empty out of my fridge.

I did Max Cardio class this morning instead of Core Cardio and Balance. After work I will try to get Cardio Abs class in, and then maybe tomorrow I can fit in the Cardio and Balance class in the evening. I thought I should make sure I get the tougher one done

I didn't go to sleep any earlier than usual last night, but I was up 15 minutes before my alarm this morning. That hardly ever happens... I think the whole 'Two More Sleeps Until My Trip' thing is keeping me from sleeping well. I had to squirt some Visine into my eyes this morning because they were looking pretty bloodshot. Yikes. I also hope i'm not getting a cold, i've been feeling one coming on lately; that would be hell to deal with on the plane.

We won our ball game last night, but I really played horribly. Oh well, I don't have to worry about my game anymore because i'm done for the season! Normally that would make me sad, but not today. I pulled a muscle in my thigh and threw my arm out last night, so i'm pretty glad to be done. I sat at home after the game, icing different areas of my body. It was so much fun.

So that means I skipped the BBQ to lay on the couch and feel sorry for myself.

Tonight I am finally getting my hairy legs waxed. I haven't been able to wear shorts or capris for two weeks now LOL, and it's HOT outside!

I checked the garden the other day and even though the weeds are higher than the plants, I see things growing! I see pea pods and string beans, and the potato plants are in bloom. I don't think I got any cucumbers this year, and I can't tell if there are carrots or not, but i'm sure i'll have plenty of onions. There's a crapload of dill growing all over the place as well.

Question: I was going to lay sod on the garden this fall, but I wonder if I should first round-up the garden, leave it for a year, and THEN sod? What do you think? That would get rid of the weeds and the dill, right?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

glycrina on 08/02/2012:
Hey Legs! Have you felt better since you started the workouts? I am jealous (in a good way) that you have been sticking to your workouts!! That is sooo awesome!

grannyannie on 08/02/2012:
Good job on the workouts! Hope your thigh muscle feels better soon.

V on 08/02/2012:
Yayyy for two more sleeps before your vacay! I will def connect with your travel blog, that way I can live vicariously through YOU <3 P.S. we are almost Insanity grads :) Yipeee

It was really hard to wake up for Max Interval class this morning. I thought I went to sleep at a reasonable hour, so I don't know why I am soooooo tired this morning. Coffee for the win!

My breakfast is orange juice and purple grapes that I left at work yesterday. Oh, and I have a few almonds in my desk drawer somewhere. How does a week start out so well and then crash so hard on hump day?

Yesterday my schedule got messed up. I had planned on finishing the yardwork and the laundry. But Grandma phoned and wanted to go out for dinner. I am not one to pass these things up, you know  so we went to a newly opened restaurant where I ordered buffalo chicken and got something entirely different. It was still good, but I was really pining for some spicy buffalo chicken breast. I would have sent it back, but i'd already eaten everything else on the plate - salad, rice and veggies. Apparently i'm a 'eat-one-thing-at-a-time' kind of person. Hmmn. Took half the chicken home.

That took up a good chunk of time and when I got home I just didn't want to do anything. So I did the laundry, tidied in the kitchen and even painted my toenails in order to avoid having to go back outside to the yardwork. Some things never change, you know?

I've got a ball game tonight, and an invite to a BBQ out of town. I'd rather not go, but maybe I won't feel so tired after playing ball. Then again, it's so humid out there I wouldn't be surprised if I come home soaked to the bone again!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

glycrina on 08/01/2012:
Hey Legs! You seem to be in a much better place. I hope everything is going well for you.

V on 08/01/2012:
LOL!! I am def a one item at a time eater most of the time, exception breakfast foods :) You will be getting alot of rest on the plane Saturday I'm sure, that is unless you are like me and chat with the flight attendants and have cocktails...hahahaha How long is the flight? How long will you be away? Sorry if i am being too nosey ;) Have fun tonight

Umpqua on 08/02/2012:
Good for you for keeping up with Insanity even if you're tired! I need to find that kind of motivation again. Hope you have a good one :)
