Okay, enough of that....

I think my hormones were out of control yesterday. Either that or I just did not realize how much I want to go to school and how much I really want to teach. Weird, I know, but true. But enough of that, let's move on. I'm a firm believer in the fact that things work out the way they are supposed to. So I'm confident it will all work out. Besides, I now have a Plan B :)

I got a Strassburg Sock yesterday. My chiro thinks it will help with my heel problem. How annoying do you think that thing is when you're sleeping?? You are right. Also, by midnight my toes are all squished together and hurting. Yea, that sucks. A. Lot..... I ripped it off in the middle of the night and that's not easy to do. But it does appear to help. My heel did not hurt this morning. I will continue to use it until I master this darn thing. Grrr.....

I've also started a stretching program. One of the problems with my heel is that my calf is so tight. The chiro gave me heel and calf stretches but I quickly realized that my whole body is tight. I haven't done consistent stretching in probably 2 years. So Monday night I started a stretching program. It's nothing serious, just some seated stretches for the back, sides, quads, and hamstrings. Monday night I could hardly hold the positions for 30 seconds. Last night I felt much looser and not only held the positions but some I was pushing. It's amazing how quickly stretching works. My next goal is to add some yoga into my workouts.

Since I skipped yesterday, this morning was strength training. I was feeling good and pushed it a little. I didn't go crazy, just a little deeper on the lunges, holding the squats a tad longer, like that. It felt good and really worked my tail off. Yea!!!

I decided this morning that I am riding my bike to WW tomorrow. The chiro told me not to ride a couple of weeks ago, but on Wednesday he said to start adding those forbidden activities in. Last Sunday I went hiking and that worked out well. Tomorrow I bike to WW. No hurry, taking it easy, just there and back. We'll see how it goes. Sunday I'm hiking again and I believe Hubby is coming with. Cool.

And on that note, I believe I'm out of things to say. And Irene, I completely agree. Every month I pray menopause will start. I'm done already, enough!!!!

Time to put my foot down and suck it up

 I have been struggling with working out a lot recently. Much more than I have in a while. So it's time to suck it up and just do it. I&...
