Happy Hump Day!
Yesterday was an ok day. Food was pretty good I suppose but definetly not excellent. I had an amazing salad for lunch from the local grocery store near my work. They have a salad bar and it's like $4.50 per pound so my salad cost around $3.50 which wasn’t too bad at all. I put in tonssss of veggies and a few chicken strips for some protein. Overall, I drank a little less than 3L of water yesterday. I did really well at work but when I got home I got distracted and forgot to drink more..oops.
Exercise actually wasn't too bad, my step-mom and I did a 4mile walk around our neighborhood. She walks very fast and it was hard to keep up, I was actually about a step or two behind her the whole walk haha and I was huffing and puffing it was kind of embarassing. But I finished without stopping so that was a great accomplishment. I know once I get into the swing of things again with exercise I'll be able to keep up with her and maybe push her a bit as well. Something really weird happened though and I'm not sure why, maybe you guys can give me some insight. Right away my calves were BURNING and really tight. I think this happened for a couple reasons. 1) I was kind of surprised at how fast she was scooting, so I think for the first 5-10 minutes I wasn't really walking properly. 2) My shoes aren't the best for walking so I definetly need to get shoes that are better suited for activity. 3) I forgot to stretch before the walk which I know is ESSENTIAL! Also, about 35 minutes into the walk my right foot went numb. It stayed numb for about 15 minutes and then was fine again. It was really weird. Again I'm not sure if it was my shoes or the fact that I'm an overweight person walking 4 miles?
Hmm I don't know…any thoughts?
Have a wonderful day and night!!
