It's always something.
I had planned to start over with the 5k training on Monday, but somewhere along the way on Sunday I had a reaction to something I ate that backed me up so bad it hurt to even walk. Then on Monday I did something to my ankle, causing me to be unable to put any amount of weight on it (I can't for the life of me figure out what I did). I'm just dumbfounded at how many times I can be knocked off course. But I guess it still counts, right? As long as I keep getting back on track, it still counts.
The digestive issues are calming down thanks to vitamin c, raw apple cider vinegar, and virgin coconut oil. Still feeling a bit of pain, but it's moving along now and I'm hoping that by Monday (our new new new start date, lol), it will just be a memory. I haven't been this backed up in 19 years.
I'm looking for some good picture or video instructions for doing exercises with hand weights. If anyone knows of any good ones, online or on Hulu, let me know. I'm also looking for a bar bell to use. We have weights, just no bar to use them with. So until then, the boys and I will use the hand weights. This way we have something other than cardio to do on the cross-training days (other than nothing, which is what we *have been* doing). I may even incorporate some yoga into our routine.
Right now, I need to get rid of the problems causing the pain. Better go take some more acv, v-c, and coconut oil. And go to bed. Sleep would really be nice, but I doubt my 18 month old nursling will allow too much of that. After all, we can't make Mommy's life TOO easy, now can we.
