Just wanted to give a little update on my body and life - I know I go sometimes weeks and months without posting and I don't want that to happen...so I'm going to try and post more often, so sorry if these get kind of boring. I need someplace to blog before my NEW blog opens up. Still needing a name for it though...
I'm totally getting back in gear this week. I was ready to work out yesterday, then I changed (at work) and reeeally lost interest to go to the gym. Plus, Kevin got home early and all I wanted to do was go home and chill. I didn't. I figured even if I do 30 minutes of something I'll be so much better. So I did. I did 30 minutes of cardio - pushed myself. Elliptical: 10 minutes of a basic warm up (steady walking speed on a treadmill), then 10 minutes of a fast pace (like a jog), then 10 minutes of a super incline with a 2 minute cool down. I was pretty sweaty after this. Then, I quickly moved to some bicycle crunches, some planks, side planks and toe touches. It was just under an hour and just enough to feel like I didn't let myself down and got a good workout in. I can't go tonight since I have to take my kitten to the vet for a checkup - so at least I started the week out strong. Monday's are the toughest!
In hip news. Kevin went to the store last night and got me my Tums. They are actually quite delicious! After dinner I took two Tums and my Vitamin. Maybe my bone will finish healing NOW! I've tried just about everything except the bone stimulator which at this point I don't think is necessary. It's feeling pretty good. Sometimes I feel some aches and pains and things like that, but until my screws come out (in one month) I really can't determine if it's the hip, the screws or just the scar tissue wreaking havoc. Which brings me to my next point, last week my hip bone, where the screws are, was SO sensitive to the touch. It was really sore on my pants/belt area and even to the touch it was really painful. It's not really doing that lately so I'm not sure what that was all about - pretty sure it was the screws.
Anyway...that's about all I have going on. Can't wait for 2014 to be here and
officially have this stupid hip stuff behind US!
