Last Health Update (I hope!)

Friday, September 09, 2011

Okay, I hope this is my final health update about what has been going on for me in the last few weeks.

Basically, the doctors say there is nothing wrong with me. The tests came back normal. On Wednesday and Thursday, I had no symptoms (nausea/dizziness/muscle weakness). I was supposed to have a "real" doctor's appointment on Thursday but I cancelled it. I am better. As long as I keep up with the multivitamins, I will be fine.

Today I went for a 2 mile run. It was tough but I think it was because my quads and calves were sore. I did some lunges on Wednesday. My quads and my glutes should be sore, but my glutes are not. I am thinking I did them wrong. I looked at SP's demonstration of them and it is the same form. Lunges and I might be breaking up. I can use other exercises to work those muscles.

On the positive side, I lifted with a friend and we did some free weight stuff. I made her sore, tehehe! She wants to do it again ASAP! We already had a standing lifting date for every Wednesday but now I think it will be Monday and Wednesday, hehe! I think I made a lifting addict, lol! WIN!

I am super anxious today. I tend to work off my stress but with not being able to actually work out until Wednesday, I haven't really been able to do that. I can feel the stress hormones coursing through me. Maybe I will work out hard by myself tomorrow. I haven't worked out hard because I wanted to see if I am truly better. I think I am.

It is not only the stress hormones, but I am feeling pretty bummed out that I don't think my friend and I are gonna go bowling. She forgot she promised her parents that'd she help them. In addition to that, I guess I am feeling lonely. The friends I have on campus are not exactly high quality, I hate to say. Maybe that is why I am looking forward to working at the Y tonight... and on a Friday night, lol! Sometimes when I am gone for a while, it is like Cheers when you come back!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I didn't know about the deal with vitamin C. I should start tracking mine to make sure I'm getting what I need. Thanks for the tip!

    It's good that you listen to your body carefully. You're definitely in the right field of study for this.
