I am bummed! I went to the docs today for one of my three weekly visits (due to the car accident) and I told him about how I ran about a week ago and I hurt bad from it. Well, I still hurt and today he said that I have to wait at least another 4 weeks before I can start up again. He said my back is not ready for it yet. I had a terrbilbe weekend pain wise.

I need to do something. I have gained a good 15 pounds since the accident and I can't be gaining. I need to watch what I eat super close now and I have to find something I CAN do for exercise. I know I can walk (booooorrrring!) so I will do that with the kids and I will see what I can do for leg stuff like squats and lunges. Those are always good for getting my heartrate up.

Have a great week everyone!! Run if you can!!

Since the car accident (April 9) I have not been able to do anything at all in the form of exercise. I try to do housework and the pain just gets so bad i have to stop. I hate it and I am just itching to get going and move.

Yesterday I decided to try and do an easy day one week one of the c25k program. It is a 5 minute warm up walk and then one minute of running (I did a 5.0 mph) and then 90 seconds of walking. You repeat this for 20 minutes. Then do a 5 minute cool down walk. It was easy but I was feeling the pain in my neck and upper back for the rest of the day. the migraine started to set in later that night. I slept on an ice pack all night. I am going to start walking again in the neighborhood but I will take it easy. I need to get moving. My legs felt like lead yesterday. I was surprised. i have only been sedentary since April 9. Amazing how out of shape you can get form only 3 months of nothing.

I went shopping on Monday. I got $135 worth of grocery for $51.33. Not bad. I am sorry that I do not have a picture  but I was in a hurry to get all the groceries put away and run out the door for more errands.

The kids and I may take a trip to the Imaginarium Museum in Ft. Meyer's soon. I have a super cool new camera and I will take some pics and post them. They have a neat chemistry thing going on for the kids this month.

Just saw some great Target deals that I need to run out and get with coupons. :D I can get $15 worth of stuff (some of it school supplies and some of it Gerber graduates meals!!) for only $2 after tax! So, I am off to Target!!
