Day One: rested after pulling a muscle in my hip the day before.
Day Two: On the advice of my husband, I took it slow and just spent an hour walking on the treadmill. 40 minutes, 10 minute break, 20 minute finish.
Challenges: Obviously, my hip. I wasn't in pain while walking, more like uncomfortable. It just felt like it could cramp up at any moment, ya know?
Improvements: Doing any exercise on Day Two was an improvement from Day One.
How I feel: Discouraged that I'm not doing my normal circuit and that I didn't lose any weight this week. Thankfully, I didn't gain but I really hoped for more improvement. I guess I overdid it on the Valentine's sweets and when coupled with the leg problem... :( But I'm not giving up! I knew when I started that this would be a long process with potential setbacks. This is just one week amongst many and this coming week there will be much more improvement! Until my hip is better, I will have to start paying very close attention to what I consume.
- I'm a mother of 3 who started blogging as a way to share our many adventures and to expand beyond the everyday "mommy world". While there IS so much more to us mommies than the title, there is very little that doesn't in some way or another lead us back to or influence our children...if anything. So, I hope you enjoy following our family's randomness, because as all moms know- you can never anticipate what tomorrow will bring! Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day! :)
