Roadtrip and Name Change

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

The shorter than expected roadtrip with my mom and sister was fun, though shorter than initially anticipated. We got back late Saturday to my mom's. The mountains were really nice even if it was foggy and it hailed on us. Still I do love the mountains. =

Sunday my sister and I went to First Monday Trade Days which is only about 14 miles from my sister's place. We were only there a couple of hours, still I had not been in years and it was a lot of walking.

I made the 3.5 hour drive back to Austin Monday afternoon and was really tired so only did some crunches and then laundry.

A few people have asked about my name change. I've actually used this name online for years. Since I bought a little Arabian mare back in 1993, she died in 2003 or so I'd had her for 10 years. I was feeling nostalgic and felt I needed to use my standard online name so here I am as the more usual name I use online.

Well the last week has been a bit crazy at least on the allergies scene, which means I've not had as much cardio as I would like. Sometimes I get a bit short of breath when my allergies are flaring up.

This weekend though it's annual girl's roadtrip with my mom and sister. This year we're headed to Oklahoma. Not sure exactly what we'll be doing except likely driving a lot. We really don't completely know what route we're taking til we start, and things are always somewhat variable. I guess I just have to wait and see what exactly they have planned this year. I know better than to try keeping too careful a watch on my calories this weekend, though I do always log what I eat and enter it when I return.

Well see you guys on the other side of the weekend. I may be on in the AM if I exercise at all, otherwise I'll be back Monday evening.

Bleh, somehow I managed to get more exercise in this week regardless of my ankle acting up. I guess I should be glad it's been just really sore instead of swelling, but still it definitely doesn't improve my motivation to exercise.

I'm really beginning to wonder if I shouldn't go take the ankle to the doctor. However it actually swells less now than it used to so perhaps I really just need to do more stress and balancing on it. We'll see if it improves now that I'm doing cardio again.

    No there hasn't been any swelling. I'm thinking maybe either a deep muscle that is sore or perhaps circulation issues. It's felt better the past couple of days at least.

    Yikes, there doesnt have to be swelling to be hurt. Like a shoulder injury, or torn muscle, there isnt always swelling. If you are in a constant pain or constant throbbing, or is there sharp pain when you put pressure on it. Is range of motion limited. Things like that you need to be concerned about. Are you requiring something for pain, always a good indicator that might need it checked.

Not saying you need to run to doctor, but might want to pay attention to it, normally a little strain it starts to ease up a little in the pain, but if your pain is rather constant, or not improving after a week.

Hope it does feel better, we are allowed to push ourselves and work our bodies, but have to take care of them too!

    OUCH!! I hope your ankle feels better soon. I wonder if you bruised something or if you have a little strain. Interesting there is not swelling?! I would watch it and if it really bothers you, go tothe cocore and get it checked out.

    If there's no swelling...I'd say wait and see.
THANK you for the yummy yogurt! =) It hit the spot! It was nice to have you stop by ~ made me smile!
I hope your ankle feels better soon!!

Lazy do nothing weekend

Saturday, September 13, 2008

So I'm being incredibly lazy this weekend. I stocked up just in case the hurricane weather veered here, but it didn't even sprinkle as far as I know. I've been watching tv or cleaning and not much else. Sitting here trying to motivate myself to do some crunches. I've been fairly decent about doing those, even though I'm having trouble getting motivated to do much else. For some reason I'm really tired, probably my allergies but it's annoying none the less.

    Isn't it nice to not have a hurricane whipping through?? Do you like doing sit-ups? Maybe there's a variation you could do that would be more fun. I can't even DO a full sit up yet! LOL! Someday!! I'm thankful your safe and sound...we should be doing a HAPPY dance! That counts as cardio! =)

Cheat night

Thursday, September 04, 2008

I had tonight as a cheat night. Cajun food, and though I have to guesstimate at some of the calories it appears I stayed within calories, and have plenty of wiggle room before going over even. Then came home relaxed few then did crunches at 11:15PM. Sheesh, I can't believe I did those so late at night but I have to do what I can when I can.

Go Limes!
