Facebook and too much exercise!
Well as my day went on I got this huge muscle cramp I got while at the swimming pool. I think I overworked my legs today. I started doing TBX classes at the gym again, these are Total Body Extreme workouts 60 min cardio on Mon-Wed. Before I go I hit the treadmill for a 1-3 mile run then after the class I do another 1-3 miles on the treadmill. I followed this workout today with a swim at the pool and about an hour into my laps my leg just twitched and cramped up. I was in so much pain. I kinda felt it coming on and should have gotten out of the pool but I pushed through it and kept doing my laps. Next time I will listen to my body. Taking a break tomorrow from running and doing weights. I think my leg muscle needs a mini break. Plus I have an upcoming 5K this weekend I want to run in. Guess tomorrow will be a craft happy day for me, and believe me I don't mind that at all. I've been trying to lose this last 5 pounds so I can start working on my next weight loss goal. And by no means have I limited food intake or cut my calories down to starvation mode. That is a ridiculous unhealthy way to diet and would never starve myself to be thin, I think I'm doing to many strenuous workouts and need to look at doing lighter simpler ones. Maybe stick to running 3 times a week and doing the TBX and not adding anything else. We will see how that goes and how my body reacts to it.
At least my night ended with a fantastic chat with my husband[I love this man so much]. I found out a lifelong dream may be coming true for me in about 3 years. Lots and I mean lots of planning over the next 3 years to make this a reality for me. I will know more and blog more about this as I find out all the in's and out's but let's just say it has something to do with muffins, coffee and of course crafts!
