The last 2 mornings that the alarm has gone off to go swimming, I have lay in bed dreading getting up. One of the reasons that I have been getting up is to get another workout in for the Healthy Lifestyles Program - I'm towards the end of the 120 that you need to get a reimbursement. Another reason is that I don't get nearly as good a workout when I swim by myself. I lay there and think about the reasons I should go and try to motivate myself not to go back to bed. It's worked - but sometimes it doesn't. For the early risers, what gets you out of bed to workout? For the afternoon/after work workout crew, how do you motivate when the day is coming to a close? I always like to get ideas of what to think about when I'm trying to get out the door or onto the treadmill.
The knee. When I kneel - do it alot more than normal now when getting down and up to play with Nick - I have this shooting pain right below my kneecap of my left (bad) knee. It feels like there is a black and blue mark there and hurts if I touch it. Yesterday I was holding Nick right after his nap and kneeled down to sit down on the ground and OUCH! I just said OW OW OW OW OW OW OW and Nick started scream/crying - I think post-nap I scared him. I was trying to look up some things and came across Runner's Knee or Chondromalacia patella. I can't say it hurts when I'm running though. Anyone have knee things going on or does this sound familar at all?
Do you know what my life has been devoid of? Peanut butter - almond butter- nut butter. Either I overdid it or this baby isn't into it. I ate peanut butter everyday with Nick and he LOVES almond and peanut butter. I'm going to have to start digging in - but I'm not dying for it or even craving it in anyway. Weird huh?
