1. OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!
My shoulders have hit the breaking point with these Jillian workouts. Last night I woke up at 2AM in really bad pain. So much pain that I had to pop a few Advil. I avoid taking Advil at all costs because it hurts my stomach. I do think it was a really bad idea to do Shred after Pilates. I am thinking it might be time for a day of rest.
2. I have been doing double tracking of calories. While this might seem a bit OCD, it is really keeping me honest. I feel like I am in control when I actually have to write something down. I have also been tracking my food and exercise online with Spark People. I like the online tracking because I like all the graphs and reports they produce. I was using Fit Day and liked that site too but found it to be too much. I am still not 100% happy either of online trackers but will continue to use Spark People until I find one I like. Any suggestions?
3. I am very excited because we have a whole team of people from my office running the Get in Gear 5K on April 24. Eleven people are running to be exact. We have a wide spectrum of runners/walker that will be doing this race. Some are first time runners, and some are seasoned runners. We all have made some sort of a commitment to better health and this seemed like a great goal for all of us to pursue. Some were excited right away at the idea of running a race, others needed a bit more convincing (alcohol). It will be fun to train and see us all progress to tackle the 5K.
