I didn’t eat very well at the chuch thematic potluck today.Â I took very small samples of food, and I didn’t have seconds, but you should have seen the load on my plate for firsts, and that doesn’t count the homemade Pecan Sandie I started the meal with, or the bowl of soup I had for dessert.Â I am not going to feel guilty though.Â I will just return to eating healthy tomorrow when I am not at a Mexican food smorgasboard.
I have been doing a lot of diet research lately.Â Yesterday I read about The Kind Diet, which some of you may know better as the Alicia Silverstone diet.Â I have incorporated a lot more whole grains and veggies into our diet, but I don’t think I am ready to go 100% vegan yet. I am very definitely a carnivore.
A few days after we arrived here in Friday Harbor, I began walking a mile a day.Â I was doing reasonable well with it.Â Then I took three days off — the day I went to Seattle to get Amoeba, the day after because my thighs were incredibly sore so I just took a short walk to warm up and I stretched. Then Thom arrived and I didn’t formally exercise on that day, either, but I did get some walking in (just not deliberate aeobic walking).Â So Saturday I decided I had to get back to the routine — but I very quickly developed shin splints.Â I had to stop at half-a mile because I could not stand the pain.
Does anybody know what’s up with that?Â My sister, Caryl, wondered if I was walking on my toes. I don’t think I was, but I can’t swear to it.Â Funny thing is, but Amoeba and I are suffering Charley horses as well.Â What is causing this?
