Yesterday I came home from work, took an epsom salt bath and drank some magnesium water (this one) to nurture my tired legs. The bath and the drink are good for sore muscles. Find out why here and here. No pizza. No cookie. And lo & behold this was my weight this morning:
Down 1.2 lbs from yesterday. That’s what’s up.
Woke up this morning super stiff from the running though, so I’ve decided to put off the weight training until Thursday. The running yesterday was a bit of a shock to this fat guy’s system, and I don’t want to burn out. I want to give my body enough time to do some repair before I start exerting it again. I really want to focus on this new running regime and I’m afraid if I do a full weight routine today, I will be too spent to go back to running tomorrow.
So today I will be focusing on my caloric intake and drinking plenty of water. Also gonna have a banana and some nuts for a snack–both of those are good for muscles. And I’m going to make sure to do plenty of gentle stretching today at work. I’m fortunate that my job requires lots of walking because that should help work out the soreness, too.
Overall I’m really pleased with yesterday, despite the aches and pains I’ve got today.
