Pain challenged

Friday, August 24, 2012

Not the best week - Tuesday I did record food but did not exercise. Wednesday I got a lot of exercise walking around Belle Meade plantation in Nashville and walking at Edgar Evens State park but I blew my diet all to pieces. We were celebrating our anniversary and I had a wonderful chicken pot pie at the plantation restaurant and later a hot dog and small ice cream cone. We gone home and snacked on wine, cheese and crackers.
Needless to say I am back up a pound. I did better yesterday - did get some exercise in and stayed under (barely) my calories for the day.
Anyone in this group have challenges with pain? After the walking on Wednesday, I ached all over on Thursday and had a hard time finding motivation to exercise - I did a chair core exercise video and got through that but the thought of doing any cardio was scary. I felt better after a hot bath in the evening and have less pain today. I feel really out of shape but every time I work at exercise, I pay for it the next day. Not stiff or sore joints but an all over achy. Tylenol takes the edge off but I do not like to take it too often so I generally take it only a couple times a week. Suggestions welcome!

    I find I hurt more when I sit or lie down for longer periods. I think my joints rust, but it is hard to get going when you hurt.

    Hey, I understand what you mean about the pain after exercising. I'm 29 but suffer with a bad back and joint hypermobility syndrome which causes a lot of pain. After exercise I get the achy feeling you describe and sometimes even nerve pain. It's tough to get exercise in when it can make you feel this way!

    Hot baths work for me and if I'm really bad I just rest. Listen to your body and take it slowly. Pushing yourself will only make the problem worse and take you out of action altogether. Best of luck with your journey.
