Managed A Run

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I spent most of the day today at the hospital with my daughter and waited while she had her knee operation, it was successful, the good news is that her cartledge is intact and didn't need to be removed, the surgeon just removed the cyst.

When I finally got home, I got changed and managed to go for a run along the canal, it was lovely and peaceful even though it was raining.

I've managed to stay within calorie range on my tracker despite having a baked potato for lunch at the hospital but I did have cottage cheese and coleslaw with it and no butter.

Just trying to warm up now after my wet run emoticon

    I, too, had a cyst on my knee that required surgery. Glad your daughter's surgery went well! Hopefully, she will recover quickly. Way to go on the run!

What A Pain

Monday, October 01, 2012

Wasn't really in the mood today to go to the gym this morning, mainly because I kept having a pain in my right side close to my hip, at first I thought it might be appendicitis but realised that it was probably something to do with my bowel.

I did drag myself to the gym, I did manage my 2hr workout as usual and I felt so much better afterwards, I actually felt like I'd achieved something and the pain stayed away until half way through my powerbike workout, (I think it was because I was hunched over) luckily it was the last one but I kept going until the end.

I'm still getting it but it's not as often or quite as painful, hopefully it'll have gone by tomorrow, no workout planned for tomorrow as I'm at the hospital with my daughter while she has a knee operation, thankfully it's early in the morning so we shouldn't be in too late, I'm going to need lot's of inspirational reading material I think.

    Sorry to hear about the pain. Hopefully, it'll heal soon. If not, might be a good idea to check with a doctor. Hope your daughter's knee surgery goes well, and she heals quickly! Been there, done that.

Scheduled Rest Day

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Today I had scheduled a rest day as hubby had the car and was in Nottingham all morning on business.
I didn't get up until 9.30am, had a healthy breakfast, run a nice bubble bath for a soak and a read, it was lovely.

When hubby got back we went shopping it was absolutely chaotic in the store but managed to fight our way through the throngs of avid shoppers without losing it, took it home unpacked it and then decided to go out for Sunday lunch to the Toby Carvery, it was really busy there too. However I was a good girl loaded my plate with mainly veg and a couple of slices of turkey breast, I really enjoyed it and I also tracked it and it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Afterwards we decided to go for a leisurely walk around Bakewell to work off some of the lunch we had just consumed, it wasn't as busy there as it was getting on in the afternoon, we did however stop for an ice-cream but I only had a small one, I totally enjoyed it and savoured every lick as I know I won't be having another one for quite some time, I also tracked that and it was still within my range. emoticon

We walked hand in hand along the river, watching the ducks, geese and swans...it was quite romantic, I bought a small back pack for when I only want to take some water and sweat towel for my pilates and yoga classes.

We had a steady drive home and cuddled up on the sofa to watch a dvd, it's been such a lovely rest day emoticon

Out Of My Tree

Saturday, September 29, 2012

OMG!! My legs and buttock sides are killing me much to the point of I'm finding it difficult to walk.
So why, oh why did I do a 2 hr mountain biking session this afternoon? All I can say is I must be out of my tree, that or I'm addicted. Not satisfied with killing myself on the bike, when I got back I did 150 crunches and 40 push ups.

I think I'm going to go for a sauna tomorrow the only problem is I'll have to walk 2.5 mile to get there and 2.5 mile back (if I can walk) as hubby has the car for business in Nottingham.
After sauna just going to laze around tomorrow watching dvd's all day emoticon

All this exercising is working though as a lot of people have passed comment on how much weight I have lost. emoticon What an ego boost.

Food tracked and stayed in range emoticon

  No pain, no gain right?? A warm bath and lots of stretching might help. Also bananas! I haven't found actual info on it but my boyfriend told me to eat bananas after my workouts to help with the soreness and (I'm pretty sure) it helped. But congrats on the weight loss and kudos for a 2 hour mountain bike ride!!

More Exercising

Friday, September 28, 2012

Did 2 hr 20 mins at the gym this morning, tired but elated for doing a bit more of my workout.

Had a lovely healthy lunch before going back to work.

Walked to the gym later for my yoga class and then walked back home almost, hubby met me half way home and gave me a lift back.

Stayed within range on nutrition tracker.

The tops of my legs and side of my buttocks really hurt through all this exercise, so going to have a nice hot bath and early to bed I think.
