Sunday Funday

Well, this will be a short post unfortunately.  I had high hopes for this week, and was hoping that I would be able to get back to the gym in full force.  But then I got hurt!

Basically after my first weight session this week, I felt pretty sore which was expected since I only got in 2 sessions last week and 1 the week before.  My plan was to rest a day and then get back into it.  But on day 2 when I was walking to work, my left hamstring started cramping up all of a sudden (I was crossing an intersection!).  It hurt so bad that I basically limped the rest of the way to work!  Then it kept happing like twice more the same day and 3 more times the day after.  I'm sure you all have experience muscles cramps at one point or another, and know how painful it is.  Even after the cramp is over, the muscle is left torn and tender.  I was literally crying from the pain.  This almost never happens to me, and for it to happen 2 days after my workout is very strange!  I could barely walk after it happened, so forget about the gym.  I was googling about causes of muscle cramps, and apparently nobody really knows.  There are theories, but no real scientific evidence supporting any.  None of the theories fit me (working out without stretching, dehydration, etc.) so I guess I'll never really know.

Today I finally felt like I was getting back to normal so I went back to the gym.  I took it easy, but for some reason the workout still killed me.  So, that makes it only 2 workouts total this week.  =(  I think that barring any weird circumstances, I should be able to get back into it next week and start month 9 of my Get Glutes program!

By the way, did you watch the finale of Game of Thrones tonight??  I don't want to put any spoilers in here, but woah!  Didn't see that coming.  So many cliff hangers!  I'm sad that I have to wait a whole year for the next season to air!  I did start reading the books though.  I'm on book 2 now.  The dude needs to hurry up and finish the last 2 books because I'm impatient lol.

Tuesday 6/9
What I did:  Since I only did workouts 1 and 2 (out of 4) last week, I decided to start this week at workout 3.  Then I did about 20 minutes of cardio on the treadmill (15% incline) afterwards.

What I wore:  Under Armour Achieve tank with Lorna Jane Beyonce bra under.   Lululemon Inspire Crop in savasana camo fatigue green, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in ash.

Titika Flower jacket as to and from:

Wednesday 6/10 - Saturday 6/13:  Rest/injured

Sunday 6/14
What I did:  Strength #4.  At least I finished the 4 workouts in the last 2 weeks!  Haha.

I worked out in my building gym today, so no need for a "to and from".

Ok, here's to hoping that next week will be the week to get back on track!  I'll need to remember to take it easy as well, just in case.  Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Be careful, you're still abducting that left leg and not putting weight on it properly. Even the pictures taken from the back where your left leg is under you it looks like your pelvis is slightly shifted to the right. Hamstring cramps can be brutal!

    1. Yeah, I was still treating it with care yesterday. It does feel a lot better today. I just hope it doesn't come back!

  2. I suffer from muscle cramps in my calf, even with proper hydration, etc. Taking a Magnesium supplement has helped.

    1. I take magnesium everyday, in addition to other supplements like multi vitamin and such. I read that potassium is supposed to help, and I'm pretty sure I get enough from both diet and the multi...

  3. Go see a qualified massage therapist! I had a cramp in my calf for months, and a great masseuse got rid of it in 3 or 4 visits.

  4. geez, sorry that happened.when im in a bit of workout pain, I swim. it only takes about 20 min and usually I feel better after.. you'll definitely come back stronger after this bit of rest. I love the camo inspires, the black and fatigue are probably my favorite ever, I wear them for everything.
