What day is it???

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Oh this week so needs to be over. I need to go do my C25K tonight but my shins are still barking from Monday. Im sure I will be fine, any suggestions to ease the discomfort?

Anyhoo, working on actually participating in a challenge, Im starting to really like my Done Girls (shout out to missred emoticon ). Now sleep, thats another question, I need need need to go to bed earlier, but I just dont want to. But getting up tired is a drag. Just have to make myself behave thats all.

My husband finally got his juicer (almost 2 weeks in) from the guy at work so will give the bullet a break. Its really nice, Im pretty glad he got it, I love me some fresh carrot juice, yuuum emoticon

Been kinda screwing up at work too, which is so not me, so just a bit out of kilter. However, I have been watching my eating and staying in range which is awesome. My 'trigger' is sweets, I cant have just one it set up the phenomenon of craving. I didnt go to the bosses' candy jar at all today and had 1 Hershey Nugget cuz I wanted a sweet. And I was able to stop there. But I have to really watch it is all, or before I know it Im poppin chocolates all day. emoticon

Ok, the track is calling my name must go out. Im 'this close' to signing up for the Run From the Cops on 12/7, I just need to make sure there wont be any conflicts with my daughters cheer competition the same day. The run is in the morning and competition is in the afternoon, but I will see what coach has to say after tonight's practice. This one is important, if they do well they go on to Nationals.

    One thing that helps me (and I have shin splint problems too) is to take smaller steps.

    Careful of the shin splints! Do calf strengthening exercises, make sure you stretch, and wear a compression sleeve (or an ace bandage will do) around the area while you run. If you hurt after running, wear a cold pack on the area while you rest.

These are the things I've learned over the summer :)

Congrats on demonstrating will power over the chocolates! I know I eat sugar and *boom* I become cookie monster and want to eat all sweets in sight!

    Keep up the good work! Sweets are my trigger to, but we want to change our life styles but still live them, so getting to the place where you can just have one piece and be done is the goal! You can do it!

    it is great that life is looking so much better for you, and that your hubby now has his own juicer.

I hope you can do the planned 5k

Take care

    Sore shins? Sounds like shin splints. There are a number of things you can do to prevent them. Calf raises, how to prevent shin splints

Sounds like a fun race!

Keep up the good work!!

    WTG on eating in range! WOOT! Mojo!
Oh, and I suggest a foam roller for the shins.

    W00t w00t! Done Girls are the best!

Man, I struggle with going to bed on time, too- I dunno what it is, but I just do NOT want to get to sleep at a decent hour.

Congrats on staying in your ranges, though, and for exercising! That's awesome! You're rocking it, whether you realize it or not.

Sorry to hear about work, though. Maybe getting more sleep will help with that? How long has it been since you took a vacation from work? Sometimes stepping away and getting a little refresher can do wonders too.

I hope you get to make that run, it sounds fun. Keep us posted so we can cheer you on!
