My Momentum Took A Vacation...

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

I really planned on being in "beast" mode as of Friday of last week, but had to put the beast back in the cage for a few. I started a new position at work (well, training) and it seems I just don't have the energy. I think the only thing that's saving me is the fact that I'm still counting calories and watching my food intake.

Plus.. I hit the treadmill Sunday, but that's the last time I've done anything. Of course, I didn't heed my own advice ( and that of my fellow Spark fam) and may have tried to go too fast, so my leg started hurting again.

Now.. a funny thing happened after that. I went home took an Aleve then my son, my sister, my niece and I went over to the trampoline park. I just knew I was going to be in pain after jumping on the trampolines (there's that hard head of mine again)..but no. As a matter of fact, I haven't felt any pain since. It's been two days..and nothing. I know Aleve doesn't last that long.

Before I jump the gun and just assume it's all good in the leg pain department. I'm going to ease up for a bit, and stick to the dumbbells and Total Gym until I'm certain the "storm" has passed and hopefully that momentum I had a couple of weeks ago will have returned.

**I'm done rambling now**

    Ohhhh, I love my trampoline. It's wonderful when my leg is acting up. It also doubles as a great alternative to my stability ball when it comes to making sure my core is engaged. Glad to hear you found a new friend!

    I just had a thought like that when my back hurts on the treadmill but the symptoms disappear on the elliptical. Perhaps that trampoline is your beastie friend for now. Take care of yourself

    Glad to hear your airing on the side of caution, soon the Beast will be Back in Action. Your making great choices by continuing to focus on your eating...

    When I started my new job it took me about 2 weeks before I got my energy right to have enough to hit the gym after work. Hopefully it doesn't take that long for you! Waiting to hear from the beast!!!
