Leg Pain Sucks...But It's Curable!

Sick of my weather updates? Oh the time we left at 8:30pm it cooled down to a whopping 100*.

So you know I'm dealing with some horrid allergies, but suffering through my runs. Today I got to the point that I couldn't even turn the steering wheel due to the pain between my shoulder blades. I made a pit stop at the chiropractors office this afternoon and he is a life saver! Basically he knocked out my headache and sinus pain, allowed my sinuses to drain more freely (sarcastic yay!) and made it so I can now turn my head to the right and do other activities without my shoulder area being in pain. I LOVE CHIROPRACTIC.

Weigh Me Wednesday

Boy oh boy what a week. Lots of icky feelings, I'm still snot loaded, but you know that's a whole 'nother story. Milestones have been broken and new goals set for a very close friend and well for me...

I Hate Allergies

I have chronic sinusitis...and I really thought I was going to get away without an outbreak this summer. Apparently I was wrong. Two days ago I woke up with a screaming sore throat. Last night we visited my parents and by the time I got out of their house I couldn't dander. :/

We came home and I took a benadryl and that was that...eleven hours of sleep. Although not uninterrupted sleep, it was nice. Apparently it still wasn't enough, all day long I kept having dizzy spells and profuse amounts of mucous leaving my nostrils. So, I really debated if I wanted to go out for a run tonight. The hubby thought it might be a good idea. At first it seemed like pure torture, but after a while it was okay. By the time we made it back I could actually breathe.

Then we took our showers and poof, I'm right back to the "elephant filled headache" and snotty face. it fall yet? How do you all deal? Do you force yourself to get out and walk/run or do you sit at home?

Still, I guess it wasn't too bad considering I managed a 16 minute pace.

What I Do In The Name of Health

I don't know why my determination seems to stick during the nastiest weather we see. I seem to be so determined to jog in the killer heat, but the slightest cold or rain, forget about it.

{ Week 3 } 100 Mile Challenge

Weigh Me Wednesday

It's not nearly as bad as I expected. I'm actually surprised that it is as good as it is...although my joints are terribly sore this morning, but I guess that's to be expected when you're overweight and run 15 minute miles.

Back on the Wagon

So I took several days off from walking. I need to recoup as well as get some major projects around the house accomplished...and uh, yeah I'm still working with the hubby on them. I know that it shouldn't be an excuse for bailing on exercising, but sometimes I just get in that mood. It's not like I'm sitting on my butt veggin'. I'm actually sweating my butt off, but for the sake of the 100 Mile Challenge it doesn't count. So I had to throw some strength training in so I could keep up with my miles. Good compromise I'd say.

Wednesday Funk

Earlier today I posted my weigh in and it really got me into a funk. I was determined to workout none the less. As the evening drug on I sat and sat and I really, really almost didn't get out of the house. That's how bummed I was. However, the kids annoyed me into it. So I got ready, packed our stuff and put the kids in the stroller.

Weigh Me Wednesday

Hum drum, Hum drum...not a happy girl this morning. :(

Holy Bras of Steel

Did that get your attention? Well, you see I've had several "tools" on my wish list since beginning my journey. Seeing that my hubby knows I'm taking this seriously he's been slowly surprising me with the tools I need to assist me on my journey. One of those in the top priority category are good (great) sports bras.

Since you asked...

Okay, okay so it's been a while since I've updated the blog, but I've been busy working it. I've been hitting the pavement consistently and it feels great. My weight is still fluctuating around 248-249, but I attribute most of that to water retention and building muscle. I've been chugging water like there's no tomorrow because while I work out, the heat index is near 100*. Phew.

It's been a whirlwind

I feel like I've been neglecting the blog, yet again. But in truth I've been busy walking, raising the kids, keeping the household going and gardening. I've also been helping the hubby out with yard chores. Bare with me as I have several pictures to share with everyone. As you can see above...numalicious food from our garden. Yummy kale (perfect for baked kale chips), cherry tomatoes (awesome snack food), gypsy bell peppers and a purple beauty bell pepper, and a mix of chile's and jalapenos.
