I realized today after getting a comment from Muddy about an app, I need to stop pouting and figure something out and post more.
About a week ago I had a herp derp moment and forgot to wear my Hernia belt. During a dead lift I felt a tearing sensation about half way up, of course this made me stand up very quick…while still holding the weight. So my hernia was sticking out like a grape fruit and my back just did a 180 with 40 pounds.
So no running or weights just seat bound for at least another week. It has been a very depressing time, I don’t do sitting still well as I tend to want to snack. Thankfully my wife keeps lots of veggies and hummus available to snack on.
I have been very happy with my choice of foods. No pop, chips, cookies and cakes. Cake I will eat on special occasions, I have a birthday coming up and telling your 10 year old no cake would be a travesty for her :). My Wife says she will pick up something small so I can have a small piece, between the 3 of us it will not last long in the house and kills temptations. Today I did a small 20 minute walk to get to work and will do again tonight to start the healing process of getting out and running.
I picked up a Gaiam Se331 Heart Rate Monitor Watch W/Strap for $30. It is for a women but, meh if it can do the job of calculating my Heart Rate while running then who cares. I plan on buying the polar for my Nike +, think my Wife is waiting also as she has been eyeing the watch hehe.
Now I need to down load an app suggested by MuddyJ.com called Zombies, Run. The apocalypse is coming my friends, prepare while you can!!
