Zuul has also been working out hard…
I figured it out. At the doctor’s request, I have been really easy on my hips. I have spent days out walking with no problem, but yesterday I attempted the treadmill. Barely walked a mile before I started to feel the twinge again. So, it looks like my problem is the treadmill. I’m going to have to drastically switch up my routine until we move and I can be outside. Lucky for me, my husband just got a weight bench. Any lifting routines you guys recommend?
For that time I was required to be sedentary, it was really rough. I felt like Bernard Black.
I didn’t want to spread that negativity on my tumblr, so I kinda just stayed away. I’m trying to get back on the right track. These next couple months will be busy with our move coming up, but I’ll be around. :)
I still exist folks, and I am checking Tumblr. I’ve been walking a lot, and it’s been awesome. It’s also been really busy. Hopefully I’ll be back up here this week. I miss you all!
I mowed the lawn yesterday with no outcries from my hip. My doctor seems to think it’s a muscle problem, so we’re taking measures to not aggravate it and hopefully prevent it in the future. I’ll keep you updated as I try to get back into running, but we’re starting with walking first. :)
Alrighty folks, I haven’t abandoned you. Apparently I wasn’t too hip for my hip. It got worse. So, this last week I have been taking it easy. Which has, in fact, been very difficult. The pain was such that I was able to walk, but when I did walk, I wasn’t helping my hip heal and so it wasn’t getting better. I couldn’t carry anything over 10lbs without straining that one annoying muscle in my hip. Walking to the mailbox was enough to set my hip off. I have a doctor’s appointment next week and hopefully I can get some answers. My activity level has been really low and it is extremely frustrating. Hopefully I’ll be up and about again with no problem. :)
I ran yesterday, lungs gave up before the legs this time. Didn’t make it as far as I would have liked. It happens.
I’m in this weird clothing phase where none of my clothes fit. Everything is either too big or too small. Jeans are annoying. I have never had a pair of jeans that fits me properly. The problem is that when the waist fits, the thighs don’t. So I have to get jeans that will fit my thighs and then suffer through a too large waist which means ill fitting belts. One day I’m going to try to get a pair of jeans tailored. :)
Like our lives right now, my clothes are in limbo. Soon, things will start happening and it will be exciting! WOO!!
The doctor prescribed a sleep aid for TC for his insomnia. Ever since he started taking it, I can’t sleep. It’s weird, I used to fall asleep no problem and then sleep like a rock for the rest of the night. Now it’s 6 am, and I’ve been trying to sleep for the last 8 hours. Man oh man, tomorrow… Today is going to be a long day.
Today I attempted a run. Hip showed signs of getting angry, but it never actually did. So, I ran 2 miles! Yay! I guess I have to work back up to my distance record. I’m okay with it. Feels good to be running again! Can’t wait to get new shoes!
