I had said I was going to keep updates on my blog as I worked through my running class but apparently I didn’t mean I was going to do that often. I’ve been to all the classes so far and I’ve been trying to keep up with the workouts. Because I am me the process is going slow because I don’t want to hurt myself. At first I ended up with some minor knee pain but that went away after switching to walking for a bit. Now I’m having on-going hip issues to the point that I’m going to see the doctor tomorrow and just make sure it’s nothing too serious. It’s possible it’s related to my sciatic nerve or it’s a muscular issue, I really don’t know.
I’ve also been doing my 3x a week work outs with my personal trainer and I’ve been able to make good progress there. After what seems like about a month long of not seeing any weight loss I finally saw a loss this morning. I had become a bit to lax in my food tracking and that had to have effected my losses. Now I am back on track 100% and will work to keep it that way.
On July 4th my friend and I went on a nature hike/scavenger hunt at Pioneers Park Nature Center which was a lot of fun but I ended up coming home with 6 ticks, which was less than fun. Then Saturday night I met friends in Firth, NE to watch the fireworks show there and it was really fun.
I’ve been reading a lot too and making good use of my public library. I just need to be careful I don’t check out more books than I can read! Also last month I had the first meeting of the book club I helped start and it was a lot of fun. The next couple months will be interesting as I am doing a 6 week work rotation at the Apple Retail Store in Omaha. That’s going to be a lot of driving but it will be worth it for the training and experience.
Hopefully everyone else is doing well!
