This weekend, I was house/baby/dog sitting for a friend, and we were so incredibly busy. Between the 3 kids (my 1, and my friends 2 boys), their sports (all three of them playing on different teams, and at different fields, and even in different cities), errands and just all around life. We ate bad a lot. BUT. I am happy to report that today is day 5 of no soda. And that really doesn’t seem like a long time, but considering from Friday until today, we’ve only had 3 home cooked meals, that’s pretty amazing. I still want soda, especially on Friday when I made the kids rootbeer floats. But, I am doing okay without it.
In regards to running/walking every day during my break. I’m not having so much luck with that. Last week I got a pretty massive blister on my heel, it didn’t matter what shoes I wore, it killed. About Friday-ish, it was better, and I was able to walk without limping. Sometime on Satruday afternoon, after roughly 6 hours of running around, running errands with the kids, and getting lunch and what not; I felt a pain in my hip. I kind of just shrugged it off, but throughout the day it just kept getting worse and worse. The pain comes and goes, mostly comes when I walk, but sometimes it’s there when I’m sitting, or laying, and I just have to move around until I find a spot that isn’t excrutiating. I have no idea what I did. It’s not like I was wrestling, or running a marathon, or tai kwon do or anything. When I first fielt the pain, I was standing at the stove, and cutting up bacon. Pretty strenuous right? I think this injury stems from my weight. My frame can’t take the extra pounds that I’ve put on over the last few years, and I don’t blame it. Unfortunately, I love this delicious food so much. It’s going to be hard to q uit.
I just want to get back to running, but damn. It just hurts so bad. And to add to the awesomeness, I don’t have insurance. So I just get to suffer. Lucky me.
