Diet and Exercise Recap: May 1, 2009

– walked about 30 minutes before work (no muscle spasms)

– before going out to lunch, I walked around the plaza, but this time I did get a muscle cramp (right hamstring).  I’m seeing the doctor next week for a 2nd follow-up after my hospitalization, so if these series of muscle spasms continue I hope he can prescribe some treatment to elliviate this pain.  I thought it was dehydration so I almost doubled my water consumption since Wednesday.  Unfortunately when all is said and done, Icy Hot to the rescue!

– It was Friday and when I left I called up my brother to see if he wanted to stay in and we’ll cook something or go out.  He opted to go out:  I opted to drive just over an hour north to Albany and hit The Golden Corral.  Good for the meal:  Bad for me!

– We got back around 11PM and there were still people @ the gym.  I went in, put on my sweats, and headed on over.  After stretching out my legs for a good 15 minutes, I hit the treadmill for 30 minutes going around 3.0 miles to start, then half-way through I moved it up to 3.4.  After that, I grabbed the smallest set of dumbbells I saw (15lbs) and did the following:

  1. Dumbbell Flat-Chest Presses:  2 sets of 10 reps
  2. Shoulders:  2 sets of 5 reps
  3. Reverse Flies – 2 sets of 5 reps
  4. Shrugs:  2 sets of 10 reps
  5. Bicep curls:  2 sets of 10 reps
  6. Triceps curls:  2 sets of 5 reps

After I got back, I showered, put on PJs, and went to bed only to be woken up with muscle spasms on my left calf/shin.  On a bright note:  At least I’m trying…

…but still I’m aching all over the place…and in pain on my calf.  Damn leg! 😦
