First, ‘cause I know you have been waiting to hear, I am still cutting the sugar and I still feel much less insane. I have fallen off the wagon a couple times and whoo it is hard to get back on. I felt really good for the first month and it was easy cutting out extra sugar. Then I had a stressful day and my tummy was upset so I got myself some digestive cookies. Then I had some more. Then I ate an entire box of digestive cookies.
This is an open letter to a certain trainer. How many times do I have to tell you to take it easy on the legs? I need to use them every day, all day! I can function just fine (OK maybe with a lot of grumbling) with sore chest, or arms, or abs, even a sore butt. As long as my hands work and my legs work, I’m good. OK if I’m super tired I’m useless and basically dangerous as well, that’s a given.
I have had Achilles tendonitis for 4 years in my right heel. 4 years ago I had a fall and it didn’t seem too bad but when I drove the car my heel would ache after 20 minutes and after about an hour my leg would start to swell up. Eventually I took it in to be checked out and it turned out I had some small tears in my Achilles. I went to rehab from hell one time and never returned. They gave me deep tissue massage and it was agony. The worst part was that the rehab expert masseuse sadistic @#$%^&* hanging on to my foot refused to stop when I asked him to give me a break for a minute. Well that was a disaster as I have issues with being controlled so I became hysterical and he still didn’t let go. JERK!
