Hiiii guys!! I feel like I’ve been MIA recently … but I’m back 🙂
I have been trying to exercise a bit more recently. I used to run and workout 4 days a week before I got sick, I definitely cannot do what I was used to do it, but I want to start somewhere again, ya know? I had a good week a few weeks ago where my legs felt almost back to normal, I cannot tell you how amazing it felt!!! It didn’t feel like I had 50 pounds on each leg, it felt so good! I decided one day to go for a quick run with my husband just to see how I would do … well … I think it was way too much on my body because I felt really sick afterwards! I had these weird internal vibrations (It’s hard to explain what these exactly feels like, but I hate them) that lasted 4 days and my neuro symptoms started to act up. I believe Lyme and Co’s messed up my adrenals, so I am getting them checked out this Friday!!
Anyways, I decided that running is probably not the best thing for me at the moment, so I figured walking and light weights is probably what I will stick with for now!
I walked 4 days and about 15-20 minutes each walk last week, followed by a 15-20 minute very light weight workout then sat in the sauna for about an hour! I ran errands for about 7 hours last Saturday ( I was absolutely exhausted) .. it was our first weekend home in a very long time, so I had a lot to catch up on. Anyways, then Sunday I cleaned the house for about 3 hours … I was just beat by the end of the day. Monday, I was at work and all of a sudden my right leg felt really weird …. I lifted my skirt up and noticed my right shin and calf were super swollen!! I think I’ve been over doing it with all the walking and everything! I currently have my legs elevated with an ice pack on my shin …. and I feel like I am 90!! Where is my young and spry body?!?! I need to figure out a good balance without exhausting myself like this … it’s not good for my body!
Hopefully you won’t be able to see the swelling in these pics, although I think you can kinda see it in my calf .. oh well!
I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had yesterday and busted out my fall boyfriend shorts outfit. I am a huge fan of boyfriend jeans and shorts, but I am very picky when I shop for them. Some fit really awkwardly, but both my boyfriend jeans and shorts fit just right! I bought these shorts about a month ago from Target (clearance rack) but I haven’t worn them until yesterday, for some reason!!
I love wearing them with a casual off the shoulder white t., converse, a hat, and a plaid button down in case it gets a little chilly 😉
