I am back into the swing of things and working out in the mornings. I need to really focus on the dieting though as that is killing me. I just want to eat all the carbs and no protein. That is something I really need to take a focus on the rest of this week. I think that if I am very diligent about logging that would help me out a ton!  Wanna chat about diet or exercise? Tweet me @Sarindre or follow me on MyFitnessPal as korngirl723. Have a great week!

I’m taking an unplanned rest day today after a visit to the chiropractor yesterday.My hips are all kinds of messed up, so I’m going to let those adjustments sit. I did manage a treadmill half marathon yesterday, mainly since I knew I wouldn’t be running today. It felt pretty good, and it’s the first one I’ve gotten in since recovering from that leg thing that was plaguing me.
Food. Yeah. I don’t wanna talk about it.

I limited my lifting this week as my shoulder is still bothering me from whatever the heck I did to it two weeks ago. Well, except Monday, when I tried to lift and found that it still hurt so I worked around it. I’ll probably repeat this this week. Now that I’m not in my 20s anymore, I feel slightly less immortal. I’ve learned its best not to try to power through certain injuries. A little patience can save you a lot of trouble here. On Monday, I lifted, focusing mostly on core and legs with a little bit of upper body as tolerated. On Wednesday, I ran 5 miles outside. On Thursday, I did hanging leg raises, then ran 2.3 miles on the treadmill, and did 2.2 more on the stationary bike. Soccer game on Sunday morning. After falling into an 0-2 hole, we came back to win 3-2, so that was nice. That’s all this week!

Dear Diary, Working on my mental health and trying desperately not to slide into a depression. I’m so glad I have a healthy therapist. I’ll try more sit-ups this week. Maybe I’ll get to “1”. Pixie (who is still eating properly for the most part at least.)
