Two weeks in…

Two weeks in and I feel like I’m making some progress.

The diet part is easy and yet not.  I just got back from a weekend in Vegas.  Even though I packed healthy snacks and brought my Ultrameal and Blender Bottle, my intentions and what I really ate fell short.  Even though I can order something healthier off the menu, making food in the hotel room was a hassle.

I have made myself work a bit harder with planning meals and making sure I have a good variety of healthy food in my fridge.  I am not a huge fan of breakfast, so it isn’t easy to plan the protein, fat and carbohydrate…

The workouts have been fun and make me feel like I’m working hard for the scheduled hour.

I haven’t been as good with pulling out the meditation CD.  I have taken a couple minutes here and there while waiting for something to sit back close my eyes and take a few deep breaths.  I have been making an effort to give myself a little bit of R&R time that I haven’t been able to get around to in months… reading before bed.  Even though work is getting busier and busier I feel that along with some good food, more exercise, I’m feeling more motivated.

The chiropractic adjustments have helped my right leg that I’ve favored for three years now since running and hiking injuries summer of 2009.  Dr Jim has shown me how my range of motion is improving.  I also noticed, that it seems my circulation in my toes has improved…

The improvements with that bum leg can definitely be attributed to the myo therapy work as well.  I discovered how tight my IT band has become, along with my hip flexor.  While the ‘massage’ isn’t relaxing with ocean sounds playing in the background, I find it becoming less painful and more tolerable over the past two weeks.  I am putting more weight on my right leg without it feeling so off balance, and I think the improvements with that leg will allow me to get the most out of the workouts…
