oooo, it hurts when I do that....

I over did it yesterday and today my legs are sore. Hurts to sit, stand or move. I'm really hoping that my swim class works out the kinks. That is all I have planned for today. Except to walk the dog to the vets to purchase some adult dog food. He is ready for the switch. My baby is all growed up.

Didn't win any money at bowling yesterday. Shitters. Had fun though - cause the other team only had 2 out of 5 players - so the games went really fast. It was cardio-bowling!!

Went to WW yesterday - 2lbs down - thank you very much! Friend that I was suppose to run with ended up going for coffee with other friend instead (the gal that doesn't think I should be running "so" much). It was raining outside and she didn't want to run on the treadmill. I can understand that, so I went alone. I prefer to run alone on treadmill anyhow so that I can listen to my audio book - which is getting really good. They were clearly talking about my running schedule over coffee though, because running friend said later at lunch "no wonder I can't keep up with you if you're running every day!". I gave her my best shocked look and said "but I'm not running every day". She said, "well, 4 days!". I have never come across this kind of resistance before. Very strange.

Of course, this makes me even more committed. So, for the last 5 minutes of my run, I ran 1/2 mile per hour faster than I normally do. It was a great run. I felt REALLY good after. Which is why:

I said yes to walking last night with the walking ladies (running friend is part of this group). Well, 7k later, my legs are sore!! They sure walk at a good clip.

In other news....well, I have none. Today is picture day for the picture blog. Missed last week because husband took the camera with him on his golf trip. Bastard!

Well bloggers. Have a healthy day.

PS: Would you believe they are forecasting snow for tomorrow??? Seriously??? Why do I live here?????


  1. I wish we had bowling here, but they tore down the only place last month. I was in Calgary over Easter Weekend and I made the people I was with go bowling not once, but twice.

    I love following my gym days with walks, but yes it can make you super sore, especially if you push yourself. Good luck with swimming tonight.

  2. Snow? Wow, that sucks!

    Great job with WI! the hard work is paying off!

  3. Isn't it funny when friends discourage us like that it just makes us more determined to do what we want? And we're usually the right ones since it is our bodies and not theirs. As they say "no pain, no gain" but the pain is no fun.

    2 lbs. is wonderful! Yea, you!

  4. Hah! Fatinah, you are one funny chic! Where the hell is this picture blog? Am I not looking hard enough?

    As far as the pain, DAMN! You are a machine! And that's a good thing! I'm proud of you! Keep up the good work!

  5. I need to live there. I could totally do with snow in the forecast!
    Congrats on the weight loss this week and the great run. Keep up the good work chicky!

  6. Nice weigh in! I bet you do feel better after swimming, but if you don't some advil might help with that soreness.

  7. congrats on your loss! nice job! and i won't mention that it's sunny and in the low 80s today... ;o)

  8. 2 pounds? Wow!!!!!!!!!! Stupid snow. Good job on the running. Running fast for a few minutes is a great idea.
