bad news ... today I got shin splints, bad. I have been getting them for the last couple of weeks, but nothing too terrible. I was always able to push through. it only comes to my right leg, and only as I walk downhill, not up. my walk is 2.5 miles total, so only about 1 mile is downhill. I couldn't even get 1/2 way and I had to turn around. big bummer to my morning.
good news ... so I decided to do some Wii Fit. I can now do the super-hoola for 10 minutes! yay me! I was getting a good sweat and then ...
bad news ... the batteries died in the remote. so I locate new ones, only to find they are not charged. another bummer. note: if you use rechargeable batteries, don't just throw them in the drawer when they die, CHARGE THEM! a certain someone needs this reminder .. its on the frustrating side to get going with something, like a work out, and have to stop as you're just starting to get into it.
good news, sort of ... I did a pilates video. I found it at the thrift store the other day for $2. its pilates for weight loss with Anna-somebody. I did it yesterday and am a bit sore today, which is why I wanted to walk instead. needless to say, the video was a bit more difficult!
good or bad, I still got me time. thank you God for keeping my kids asleep while I dealt with it all. today can still be a good day. :)
