Oh Boy


Okay, I confess. This week could've been better.
Last Monday I did some kickboxing for 30 minutes.
I know it has been a while since I've done that kind of workout,
but my legs and buns were killing me the very next day.
I think it was the million squats and kicks I did.
Anyway, I was super sore, and took a couple of days off.
How bad was that?
This leg injury has gotten me lazy.
You may be asking, "How is she able to do kickboxing with this leg injury?"
Well... I've actually be with little to no pain in my leg if I don't jump on it. Hence the no running/hard impact on it.
It stinks.
Did I mention that Twin Boy has had a tummy virus for a week now? I called the pediatrician, and his nurse said I just have to let it run its course. Fun. NOT!
I feel awful for the little guy.
I also feel like all I ever do is change diapers.
Anyway, I woke up this morning with a little more energy than usual.
I've been up at 3 a.m. for 3 days straight from Twin Boy walking up cranky.
I told my hubby last night that it's his turn. Hehe.
I woke up this morning, and pumped the tires up on my bike!
I couldn't believe it. My tires were in good shape.
I dusted the seat off, put on the gel padded seat, and got on.
It felt great to feel the wind brush against my hair and face.
Suddenly I didn't feel like a total lazy bum.
Let's talk about my bum. Oh my goodness. I quickly remembered why riding this bike wasn't a fave.
My bum started hurting right away. Maybe I'll get used to it? What do you think?
Anyway... I had fun, and I only went for 30 minutes- up hill most of the way. Ouch.
I know I'll be feeling it tomorrow.
I'm planning on going out for an hour tomorrow. I think it'll do me some good.

Have a super scary and fun Halloween!

Biking is so much fun! I amhappyto hear that you are still active. I hope your son feels better. Have a great weekend.bagl

I think that finding exercises that dont irritate your leg AND that you enjoy is a great idea! You are doing great.

Hope your son is feeling better soon. Having a sick child is heartbreaking. My daughter has pneumonia and it has been a very stressful week! I worried all week long.

Congrats!!!! I haven't been around in a while and I just checked in to see that you did run your 5K and you are almost to your goal!! You are such an inspiration. I'm gonna go back and read what I've missed out on these last few months. Congrats!!!!

Here's to hoping your leg problem will be gone soon. Good for you, for active busy, despite it! Ever since a couple months ago, I've enjoyed reading your blog. Very inspirational, if that doesn't sound too creepy. ;)

I too suffer with PCOS and despite an active healthy lifestyle, I was dx with type 2 diabetes earlier this year. Fortunatley Metformin has helped keep this under control, and has helped me lose weight. I've recently taken up running too, and though I never thought I'd say this -- I am hooked! I'm currently on week 3 of the Couch-to-5k program and it's going great. I cross train on my off days with speed walking and stationary biking (getting a *real* bike soon). I suffer the same 'seat pain' on a bike, too... but hubby assures me that goes away after a while.

Looking forward to your future posts!
