I quit exercising and lost 2 pounds.......WHAT???

Sunday, August 21, 2011

As many of you know I have been experiencing severe pain from bilateral trochanteric bursitis. I was in week 3 of my 5K Training Program when the pain got so bad I was not sleeping and could sit only for a short time. I went to the doctor & got a steroid shot in each hip which helped some but it is slow in getting better so I quit the walking program for now. I think the trigger was the fact that I was walking faster for short times on the treadmill and then "normal" speed to try and get off this plateau that I have been on for so long. Anyway, I have had this pain for years & most of the time it is bearable, but occasionally rears it's ugly head and really sets me for a twist!

Yesterday I weighed & had lost 2 lbs. I told myself it was just a fluke & waited until today to see. Today I am down 2 lbs. emoticon so I put it down on my tracker. I need to lose 1 more lb. & I will put 30 lbs. lost on my Spark Page!!

I miss walking & hope to gradually get back to it soon. I have a 5K next month to do with my daughter for the Susan Komen Cancer Walk.

Hope everyone is having a great Spark weekend!

    Time to take a liquid form of glucosamine/chrondrotin, with MSM. ALSO make sure you get in as much antioxidants as possible, as they are what is needed to keep this kind of thing from happening. Steroids are good for a one time thing, BUT they actually cause problems in the long run!

    Congratulations on your weight loss. Your work is paying off. Even though you had a break from exercise, you are reaping the benefits.

    Best wishes on your healing. Cheryl
