Ouchie my legs are so sore! Got out of bed on Tuesday morning and could barely move. Made for an interesting cardio session! lol! Nah it was all good once I warmed up, got 30 minutes done on the treadmill at an incline of 12, followed by 20 minutes on the cross trainer, where my feet went numb. This always happen to me on the elliptical/cross trainer - usually about 15 minutes into it the toes start to tingle, and no matter how much I wiggle them or shift my foot position, they always end up going numb. Very annoying!!
Sore quads and hammies made for some interesting facial expressions when I was stretching. I kept thinking, if anyone looks at me now when I'm stretching they're gonna laugh at me - gawd it hurt, I was grimmacing. I havent had such sore legs for months - I'm now using my arms to lower myself onto chairs. Even rolling over in bed makes my legs hurt!! LMAO! Its always the first few steps that hurt the worst though, but it does make you walk funny!
Hobbled to gym this morning, and it took me about 5 minutes to climb up the 4 flights of stairs to the gym. It crossed my mind to take the lift, but I just cant bring myself to do it. I feel lazy if I take the lift. I did back and chest today, so I'm gearing up for a sore upper body to go along with my sore lower body. I always know when I've had a good back session, because I always get a corker of a headache the next day (from muscle tension in my back).
Eats are going great - I've been enjoying my chicken and veg soup for meal 2. Warms me up, and nice to have on a rainy winter day. Lunches are stir fried chicken and veges with rice. Feel sooo much better than I did last week, amazing how simple things like eating sandwiches can make you feel so terrible. I'm much happier without it.
Got home yesterday to find that BF had turned the power off as he was installing a heat lamp in the bathroom. We were in the dark for about an hour and a half, during which time I couldnt do ANYTHING. Its hard to cook in the dark with no power! But I was hungry, and I wanted to nibble. Happy to say that although it was extra food, I chose sugar snap peas and cherry tomatoes to snack on. At least I'm making some better food choices.
Anyway, I'm tired now so off to bed early for this little chicken!! Nighty-night!
