When too much is too much

Well, to respond to RobFitness, I overdid it.  That 3 mile run has been hurting me the last 2 days.  Yesterday my thighs were tight and it was hard to walk.  This morning I woke up at 5, not by the alarm clock, but by my calves cramping up.  That cramp stayed with me for the first half of the day and I can still feel it.  It’s really strange.  I have muscle.  I can feel it.  When I was running I knew I had the strength to keep running.  Apparently it was too much to start out with.  I do not like this at all.  It’s hard to take it easy when I know what I can do.  I can’t even get on the exercise bike without trying to push harder and harder.  Tonight I drove my dad’s pickup that I borrowed back to his farm and walked the 3/4 mile way home.  It felt good just to stretch it out and hopefully I can do more tomorrow.

Eating is still a struggle and I have no reason why it is.  I’m not binging and not going out to eat.  It’s snacking that’s my problem.  I’m going to not buy some of the little treats that I usually do to avoid going over what is a good portion size.

Everything else is going pretty good but my writing sucks.  I don’t want to classify this as a funk but I will attribute a lack of excitement in looking at anything right now.  The most exciting thing is playing with the Zune software.  It’s like ITunes but better.  I may need to get out from listening to podcasts and go back to some music for a while to bring me back.



Could be the weather or some other personal stuff but I’m in a mood.   Pretty close to a depression and my appetite is reflecting it.  I now understand the appetite and cravings and able to stay away from them.  I skipped out on the ice cream tonight and away from the open bag of chips.  Tonight I’ll have the Reese’s Puffs cereal for my 8pm snack and go to bed early again.  I hope this weather warms up soon so I can enjoy being outside rather than having my face numb up a little bit from being outside for an hour coaching soccer.  Where is this global warming they keep talking about?

Exercise was good this morning.  I love working hard on the exercise bike and getting a good sweat.  I had to keep in mind not to grab the handles too much because it was making me tense up and I should be trying to relax more.  Tomorrow will be day 2 of doing the new cardio and I can’t wait to see how that goes.  Have to remind myself to only do 8 reps instead of the 10 that killed me yesterday.
