1. On Monday I went to the doctor for a physical exam. All went well. I mentioned a little bump in my face (close to the cheek) and some minor pain in my knees. She recommended a sports medicine doctor for the knee pain. She mentioned that I am down 11 lbs. from last year. What? I remember last year my mom asked if I was pregnant so I guess I was on the heavy side. Still no word on my blood results to check for diabetes and cholesterol results.
2. Last week at the RnR Chicago Half Marathon expo I purchased the Fitbit Zip. It is a small gadgets that tracks steps, distance and calories and syncs them to my phone. The goal is to walk 10,000 steps each day and yesterday I walked 4,410 steps or 1.92 miles. I am not sure if I should wear it while I run because I also track those miles and I feel like I am double counting. Right? I can’t wait to use it when I am back at school. For sure it will be more than 10,000 steps.
3. I love chocolate and enjoy a protein shake after my workout. After reading Katie’s blog at Live Half Full and mentioning About Time, I just had to try it. I ordered the trial pack (chocolate and chocolate mint) and loved it. I then purchased a container from Amazon. What I love even more are the ingredients. Try it.
Just Keep Running!
