First the not so good news. My hip has been bothering me since my run on Saturday. It actually began to ache during the beginning of the run, but I pressed on. I don’t remember it aching again until Sunday sometime. I was on my feet all day Saturday afternoon/evening cooking for Easter and then a lot of Sunday setting out Easter dinner and having guests over. I’ve never had this kind pain before.
So, Monday I didn’t exercise to give my hip a break. Then yesterday I did the elliptical instead of jogging to keep the pressure off of it (I know this helps my knees if they get sore). However, it’s still achy. *sigh* So, today I simply went for a brisk 30-minute walk and then did weights for upper body.
I have no intention of hurting myself just to be a runner or very fit. So, I’m taking it a little lighter on the workouts until I am not achy in my hip. I can almost feel it aching direction where the joint sits in the socket. Hhmm..
On a happier, and more encouraging note…if you don’t follow Diane over at Fit to the Finish you should go check out her post from today called “When the Fun Fades“. It’s a very good insight into how to keep going on a weight loss journey even when the “honeymoon” period passes. I found her post so true, because I’ve quit diets many times in the past because it was no longer “fun” to eat right and exercise.
I hope you’re all having a very nice week!
