Scattered Thoughts

I woke up this morning and my calves were killing me! I think that the couple of sets of running on the spot that I have done this week are what has caused the pain. That probably means that it’s working, but I will definitely be taking a break from that particular exercise for at least another night or two.

I would like to send out a hearty welcome to Tammy and Billie who have also decided to take part in my Christmas Challenge! So far the odds are pretty good for each of the participants to win the prize since there are currently four people signed up, so if you would like to join and try your luck let me know. The official starting day is this Saturday!

The weather here is pretty grim and wet so I doubt that there will be any outdoor activity planned for today. I am thinking that my workout DVD is a good option, but I will likely raise the level of my step as I have the routine down and am finding it rather easy as of late. With my sore calves though I will have to make sure that I stretch properly since I am not usually great for following through on that front.

I saw a friend yesterday who commented on my shrinking waistline. He said that I am looking skinnier than I ever have (which isn’t actually the case, although it has been years since I have been at this weight), and that my efforts are really noticeable. I’m so pleased to know that my hard work is paying off!

  1. How nice to be noticed! I did some running in place stuff with the Jillian Michaels shred DVD and it seemed like a fairly direct road to shin splints for me.

  9. How wonderful - I can notice it but only in places that are sort of hidden from the world (the pouchy area between the shoulder and arm). You must have just been walking on air after that. Congrats!!
