Another Week Has Gone By

I really have not been good this past week.....I got the year started off right, but then....well, life...

I did take a walk with the boys around Pflugerville Lake after school on Thursday.  It was a nice day....a little warm, but nice enough and not too windy.  I don't remember doing anything Friday...then Saturday, I packed up the boys and headed into Austin for a walk/run on the Hike & Bike Trail around Ladybird Lake (still will always be Town Lake to me).  It was an absolutely beautiful day & there were soooo many people out enjoying the day. The Zooma race was having a kickoff at Luke's Locker and that was why we had a walk there.  My mentor, Lisa, was there and really helped push me and I ran more than I ever have.  It was awesome....until she realized she lost her phone....she ran back from where we came (she didn't find it on her way back, but someone later found it, turned it into a running shop & they called her....good people still left in Austin) & I headed to the end....I cut a little short because my sciatic nerve started hurting.

The first time I ever had problems with my sciatic nerve was when pregnant with Eddie...I stepped wrong one day in my classroom and this shooting pain went from my butt down my leg and back up.  Last year, when I first started training, I was trying to run and had that same thing happen.  I took the rest of my walk much slower that day and just can't seem to remember how I got over the pain.  Well, it has taken me a couple of days...I came home, stretched, iced it and have taken it easy most of the week.  It finally stopped hurting sometime Monday, but with cold wind, I didn't want to take the boys out yesterday for a walk.  I went to Corefit (boot camp) this morning...Carlos gave me this torture device to use to work on that area & now I think I am bruised.  I need that.... little bag of magic...Lisa showed me that same thing on Saturday (but with her loss of phone, we did not have a chance to do any stretching after).

Anyway, I have a long walk/run on Saturday & am trying to figure out how to fit something in tomorrow & Friday with it not being very good weather.  I am thinking of going to bed now & getting up to try to do something on wii that is supposed to be like running or wait and see what tomorrow afternoon is like...argh!  What to do?  If it were just me, I'd go, but hubby is working, so I can't go out tomorrow morn & he might or might not be home tomorrow afternoon....

On another note....I am going to really be keeping track of the eating over the next few weeks as tomorrow my sis & I will be a team in a contest to lose some weight.  Let's see how that turns out....the influence of sisters!

On yet another note....anyone else addicted to Pinterest....that site has some awesome ideas!  Already done 1 project and 1 recipe.  I've been pretty happy with both.  I have some really great ideas pinned and need to get this house cleaned up and organized and implement some more of those ideas!!!

Happy Wednesday!!
