Am I Dedicated or Insane?

I took 10104 steps (2.7 mi) on Walk It Out. I was sitting here thinking of how proud I am of myself and then I realized that I guess I am more insane than anything. I am really not feeling great, but I am going to try to avoid the narcotics tonight and just go for the good old ibuprofen. I will also take my normal Benedryl and melatonin and then head to dreamland. Maybe I will be more able to get out of bed before 10am. I think the vicodin is making me constipated, too. Ugh! I know, TMI!

I am really tired of starting a challenge and then getting hurt. This happened in September when I fell down the stairs in the middle of the night, and it happened again in October when Dimples sprayed Pledge all over the floors. At least this time, I can still walk. Push ups are out for a while, and maybe running, but I can still walk! And walk I will.


  1. It's probably difficult to peel fruit too. Drown the enemy!

  2. Just keep the Pledge away from Dimples and all will be good!
    I will join you in walking :)

  3. Awww, truly feel for you, Mandy. I was kind of chuckling about the starting a challenge and getting hurt (not at you, with you). I have done that so many times - get hurt just after I've started a fitness regime - tripping, falling, twisting, smashing. If I didn't know better I'd think I was doing it on purpose ;-)

    Take care of yourself.

  4. This post speaks to me on so many levels Mandy. I did three more miles on the treadmill tonight, upped the speed to 3.2. I felt great the entire time I was walking and then I sat down to dinner for about an hour. When I stood something tore or popped or...something weird happened in my right thigh. I described it to "Temptation" and he said it sounds like what he felt when he pulled his hammy last year during softball. I thinks I might be trouble ... which puts me firmly in the realm of insane and waaaaay beyond dedicated.

    I'll take one of those narcotics if you're sharing. ;)
