2 WEEKS OF NO SUGAR, KNEE PAIN UPDATE

BEEN over two weeks out of sugar, but fully satiated with the fatty foods that I’m eating. Cheese is not really big but I am just so glad that for the most part of this new habit, I have taught myself to simply eat a very filling set of foods that I would not have otherwise be able to enjoy. freakin amazing.

the best fuckin part of it all? I lost  a substantial amount– quite alarmingly quick but I know it’s the water retention. 10 lbs of weight loss is a total feat that I have never experienced before and I am super glad I did.


as for the knee pain, it’s been really a literal pain, and I totally attribute it to the speedwalking that I did a couple days back, when I haven’t mastered my form.  little by little though, I’m totally getting healed. it sucks that I can’t bend my right knee, and for the most part my sex life has been a little rough because of it.  But I’m getting well. Whoohoo

Literally DONE with therapy! (after 3+ months)

It is the day  I am so waiting to come and I didn’t expect it to be brought up today.

I’m just trying to make it really dramatic than it already is, but hell to the fuckin yea we are done!

Right before my chiropractor started with the regular spine  alignment stuff— he asked me how am I doing as always, replied positively with a doing good.

To be honest,  at the latter part of therapy I can’t wait to be done because in my head, I am done, this is just throwing away money, throwing my time just for the benefit of a the medical practitioner who is pretty ok but of course understandably so is just after quantity. of patients coming in.

 

Stuck in a workout rut

Im typingthis during the time I still should be working out. I was determined 30 mins ago to run and work my heart rate and everything but rain started to pour as soon as i literally stepped on the tracks. God not even a kilometer finished and i had to walk back home and instead of working out i just walked around and wasted precious minutes. Its been tough with this stupid lower back but I know I couldve done things even in my condition. I will have a good plan tomorrow. And keep eating clean today.

If I am writing in the pessimist tone, I would be frowning upon right now and forlorn. Monday beckoned, awoke us with the sordid fact that there is a week-long barrage of rains,   getting up and busting my ass to workout this morning was an insane struggle,  and now I felt this all too- familiar pain in my lower back. And my coworker who is a model for professionalism didn’t even had the decency to mention that she’s taking the week off making me guess about her whereabouts, facing her client and everything that just is not working on a Monday.

I’m just venting.

I’m in a moderate amount of pain. Pains that typically I get when i had 1. too much sex (I have not, mind you) 2. or did strong kickboxing punches or crazy burpees without tightening my core or 3. Just the imminent reminder that I am adding another year old in two weeks.

other than this whining, Monday is still lovely, no boss, the peace and complete control of what I want to do today, and stalk my crush—aka my hubby who happens to be my coworker as well. Yes, this first Monday of February is really adorably sweet.

One ugly bent was all it took

And now I’m walking sideways again like a goddamm zombie. It happened last night as I was cleaning the plate cabinet.

I’m trying my best to work my way around it today. On a happier note, we are celebrating our first anniversary and a 5 day weekend. Yes!!! 5 day of amazing trips, relaxation and staycation! Couldnt be happier! 

First impressions on JM’s Body Shred

Mind you I did this on a Sunday while still nursing my nasty injury on my left wrist; I don’t know if its carpal tunnel but 2 days ago it hurted I cant even clench my wrist…
So anyway..

This Cardio 1 is actually okay, I love JM, I’m a subscriber of her podcast sure, but workout dvd-wise I honestly look for Beachbody™ quality stuff that I’m used to.

A. Workout music was ho-hum
B. No graphics or text to clearly illustrate what workout it is..
C. Lack of “normal people”- I know how she said in her podcast that one of the qualities she looks for her casting is diversity, hence the entire race is present; however, the normalcy and relatability to people like me are well, set aside.
D. Doable exercise. My gauge of an intense workout is when my husband naps and wakes up mid sleep while I bust my ass on a workout, thats a good cardio.
E. Set was sooo dim. I dont mean to be as white as Turbo fire set but a nicely lit workout is seriously motivating.

Anyway all these aforementioned aside, I still adore JM.

Pushing while hurtin

While I know that whole old premise of no pain no gain is an age old bullshit…

I jus feel the need to really make this February 29 2016 count.
Im still insanely sore from my saturday exercise excess but after eating tonight which is relatively healthy…
Still I believe I am driven to exercise on a Monday.
I was successful with my attempt with my intermittent fasting, successfully killing my sugar craving.
As I type this im still walking on incline at the treadmill. I just tried for 10 mins to run, but I felt my chest was literally bouncing off where the boobies are.
The struggle was real, the leg was screaming, i was cramping.

But the feeling is jus incomparable.
Fuck yea.
