JiggleFreeJuly: Part 1: DAY 10

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I just make up random things that make me happy - and then I name my challenges after it. haha

WEll, just a quick update. I now walk to work. I pulled a muscle in my back 2 weeks ago and it has been a slow go of healing. Note to self... do NOT lift heavy boxes when your balance is already off because of your recently broken and finally healing ankles.


Lesson learned.

BUT, it has now been 9 weeks post breaking of ankles. Doc says I should wear boot 3 more weeks but now I can start back exercising! yay!

You guys just don't know how lazy I've felt. and the less I exercise the worst my mood gets AND the older I feel haha. So, it's better for EVERYONE that I've started back on my endorphin rush. I'm on Day... 10? Of my (6 month) challenge. I will plan 2 different 3 month challenges to break up the monotony. Also, each month will have some different silly name... just to keep it interesting.

This is my Jiggle Free July. I still jiggle though. Let's be honest... my hips and thighs will ALWAYS jiggle... I hope. At least a little. but not so much that there will be an earthquake/tsunami wave in my skirt 3 seconds after I've stopped moving. That makes for an awkwardly broken silence when you're in a crowd. hahahaha! Also, I am hoping to keep some curves but finally get rid of the "musical thighs" as I've coined them. My jeans probably would like a break as well. My left and right thigh are getting WAAAY too friendly. emoticon emoticon emoticon

This week so far, I think I've gotten more than 10,000 steps each day. Up to 16,000 on Tuesday. I did bedtime strength routines to slowly increase strength in my lower back... trying to fool it into leading me alone and taking the pain with it! So each day... I do a few crunches, some modified leg lifts, yoga for back pain... and ibuprofen/ muscle relaxer and prayer.

I can't take much more pain. Luckily I feel that all of these ailments caused me to sloe down a bit but ultimately they taught me not to take my usual GOOD HEALTH for granted.

I am claiming VICTORY and healing over my body. I deserve to be pain-free or darn near close to it! I deserve strong toned muscles that help my body function as it should. And so, I am going to WORK for those things.

I've never been afraid of a little hard work... and now I MUST go to bed. Getting up early tomorrow for an am walk with my pups and then walking to work. I WILL reach my goal in the next 6 months and I can't WAIT to share my progress!

This "lose weight" thing is getting old and I'm tired of walking around the same mountain. 2015 shall be MAINTENANCE! [ If I don't claim it... who will!?]

I've missed you Sparkies... hope you still remember me and don't mind my frequent bloggies

    I loved your post - you are so funny and have a great attitude. I also have/had heavy thunder thighs. I have slowly (like over a year) gotten my hips down from 45in to below 40 in. I haven't measured my thighs but I know I can fit into pants that I couldn't fit into before. So I know I've made progress - I still have some work to do...the rest of my body has responded nicely to all the strength training. Hey, I just started eating Paleo/Primal and from what I'm reading/seeing on the internet/youtube, this might be what I need to do to get the last few inches off my hips and legs. You might want to check it out. But you have to like meat - which I do so it is not a problem for me. Keep up the great work and great attitude! You will get there.
