I didn’t eat very well at the chuch thematic potluck today. 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. I am not going to feel guilty though. 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. Yesterday I read about The Kind Diet, which some of you may know better as the Alicia Silverstone diet. 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. I was doing reasonable well with it. 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). So Saturday I decided I had to get back to the routine — but I very quickly developed shin splints. I had to stop at half-a mile because I could not stand the pain.
Does anybody know what’s up with that? My sister, Caryl, wondered if I was walking on my toes. I don’t think I was, but I can’t swear to it. Funny thing is, but Amoeba and I are suffering Charley horses as well. What is causing this?
