Pain in the neck

So this morning, I decided that I would rollerblade to the gym. It is about 5.5 miles from my apartment so a perfect distance. It was nice out when I left at about 6:30 and I enjoyed myself. My only gripes are that the sidewalk I was on happen to be the same one that the landscapers were on and there were quite a few patches that I literally had to walk through leaves because they had blown them on the sidewalk. Then the sidewalk was closed at one of the intersections so I got to play a little bit of Frogger. Good times haha. I got to the gym and I had some extra time before I was going to train with Dae so I hopped on the treadmill and ran for 20 minutes(8 min. at 6.0mph; 11 min. at 6.5 mph and 1 min. at 7.0 mph) It was a good little run and then I made my way over to the weight room. Bi’s and Tri’s today. I got through about 75% of my workout and then I realized that my neck was REALLY hurting bad(from the whiplash at the lake the other day ha) so Dae massaged it a little bit and stretched it a little bit and then told me to go home and sit in the Jacuzzi. So no cardio for me, other than rollerblading back home. I feel good about it though, but I wish my neck wasn’t hurting! I sat in the Jacuzzi for 15 minutes and it helped. I did some more stretches and I’m going to continue to stretch it throughout the day. I might take some ibuprofen if its still bothering me before work. Anywaysssss

I decided that today is going to be about intuitive eating. Although I had a ginormous breakfast(didn’t even make me that full haha im telling you im a tank!) I just want to take today to REALLY focus on eating when I am hungry, not stuffing myself, and doing what my body says. I try to do that everyday but sometimes im like hmmm I want more strawberries..or I want another apple…even when im not hungry. Although I will never beat myself up over having extra fruit or vegetables, I know that I need to be more intuitive because once I start my leandown diet…there won’t be any extra ANYTHINGS…might as well start my habit now right? Well I told myself that its JUST for today that I am doing this, so we’ll see how it goes.


That being said, I am losing weight lately. Before you start congratulating me, I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. I eat plenty as you all have been able to see over the last few days with my charts, but I am scared that I could be losing muscle?? My strength is there…im stronger than I have ever been. The last time I could do 3 chinups I weighed 139 lbs……today I did 3 chinups…and I weighed myself….128. That is pretty low for me(that was my weight last year at this time, however I wasn’t nearly as strong or toned). I feel like my muscles look strong though and I have lost body fat percentage, so if its fat that im losing then hooray!! If its muscle…then F*&&…..I am getting enough protein though, so I am doing what I can. I think im just being paranoid.

    I have a pampered chef strawberry slicer. I slice 1 strawberry and it last longer. Of course as you saw my strawberries are as big as tangerines LOL! You are right though…no need to beat yourself up over eating fruit!

    Hope the neck gets better!
