My Stupid Hip.. ugh!! Frustrated!!!

Monday, February 04, 2013

My hip needs to knock it off!!

It is really beginning to interfere with my training! Every time I try to run, I make it a few minuets, then the dang thing starts hurting again, and feels like it is going to pop out. So, I have to slow down to a walk then run again... I know I can make it 1/4 to 1/2 a mile if it would just stop acting up!!

I went to the chiropractor, and he put it back in place twice. Then as soon as I started working out again, it started hurting! It seems like going to the chiropractor is useless. I am thinking about trying out the local "Witch doctor" and see if she can help. Maybe some kind of reflexology might help?

I had a great session with my trainer today. We worked on a lot of core exercises and leg ones. She is working with me to strengthen my hip. She is hoping that if I can make it stronger it won't give me so many problems.

I made meatloaf for dinner, and it turned out quite well. I was pleased with it. Later on this week, I am going to make a whole chicken in the crocpot.

As a special treat, I also got some sugar free angel food cake, and am enjoying a 1oz slice (yes, I weighed it) with sliced strawberries and cool whip free. It is a great treat!

I think that is all for now~!

    I feel for you on the hip pain! I deal with the same issue, and it always seems like the treadmill makes it way worse. Hope you feel better!

    One thing that helped my college athlete dd's is to ice after every practice, workout, game. Ice in a zip loc bag works great. Wrap in a towel, put on for 20 min. It reduces inflammation.

    I could never eat just 1oz of angel food cake. It is for that reason that I avoid it.

    Have you found out why it keeps popping out? Have you had it checked by an orthopedic doctor? Hoping all works out well for you.
