It has been 5 weeks since I developed the stress fracture in my right foot. This week - I can finally say that my foot is feeling much better . . . so much so, that I have thrown a little running into my morning walks. On Monday and again this morning I walked a block and then ran a block. Foot feels pretty good. I plan on continuing that combination for the rest of the week and then will do a little longer run this weekend. It just feels so good to actually be running and walking without any pain. Although I wasn't in a lot of pain - it hurt to walk and especially hurt to walk down stairs . . . which all worked to make sure that I didnt' run . . .
Exercise has been coming from walking and the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred DVD. Didn't fit it in this morning . . . running late but will be back at it tomorrow morning.
My weight has been staying pretty constant. I think I can honestly say that I have lost 1 pound. Most mornings when I jump on the scale - I am 134 - But I really have been watching what I eat and would have thought/hoped that a couple of pounds would be gone by now. Oh well - I am clearly still eating too much . . . I need to constantly re-commit to eliminating some of my sneeky calories. That extra glass of wine - 3 fun size candy bars - Luna bars . . .
I am so ready for our weather to improve. We were so spoiled earlier in the spring with beautiful temp's - well we are now getting the weather that we "normally" get in April . . . rain - rain - rain and cool temp's. Bring back the 70's. Looks like this weekend - should bring us back to the mid to upper 60's . . . oh so close to 70. I would love to be biking to work . . . at least a couple of days . . . but with the rain and cool temp's - it isn't going to happen.
Heading to bed early tonight - need some extra sleep.
Hope everyone has a GREAT Thursday.
