In Pain

Denise Austin is no longer my best friend. We did a bum and thigh workout on Monday night and I haven't been able to work out since. I am so incredibly sore! Yesterday was bad, but today is worse. I forget how the second day is always worse. I can barely walk, and going up stairs is just tortuous. One of my co-workers suggested a banana and said I need potassium so I just ate one. And popped some ibuprofen.

Last night I did do some arm and back exercises with the weights so I didn't feel like a total lump. I also worked 10 1/2 hours and was pretty tired anyway. I hope that I can do a real workout tonight, but I don't know if my legs will be up to it. Owie!

I did free weights last night for the first time in a while (I'd been using the nautilis machines). I'm a little sore today, but I know that tomorrow, I'm going to have to ask The Mister to fasten my bra for me because I won't be able to move!

I felt better today after taking a 20-minute walk. Maybe if you make a point to stretch your arms once an hour or so today, that might help. Just a thought.

Wow! I think you could be my idol here :) Read my blog, but the short version is that I'm just heading off to college and considering law school someday. I'm glad to see that you're working at getting healthy, just like everyone else here, and its always great to see someone fall off the wagon and get back on.

Well, bb, you and I should chat. Partly because I'm telling most people I know who are thinking about law school to not do it. There are too many lawyers and not enough jobs for all of us. But you've got awhile before you get to that point.

For now, I'll say if your school offers some sort of pre-law major, don't do that. I know you want to do law school right now, but I knew some people who did "pre-law" and once they got to law school were kind of mad about the decision because it really meant they could only do one thing after undergrad. If you have any inclination toward science, major in that. For one thing there are lots of options for people with a science/tech background. Second, if you do go to law school, firms will LOVE you. IP (intellectual property) attorneys are in high demand.

And keep up the weight loss the healthy way! You can do it!
