I am not diabetic and don't have blood sugar issues generally but I have noticed a couple of times in yoga, following a long workout, that when I bend forward and my head gets lower than my heart that I got dizzy. Once I even had to leave yoga early and I luv yoga. I am at the Y most days long enough that I need to take a full lunch. On very long days, usually Tuesdays, which I burn over 4000 calories I sometimes have to pack 2 lunches. My coach is always checking my lunch because she wants to make sure I'm eating ok. Today I burned 4057 calories. I had a sandwich before I went to workout. At the Y I had: a pb jamwich, half dozen or so baby carrots, a banana, a lowfat string cheese, and I took a baggie of pretzels I didn't eat. Don't be afraid to take plenty of food with you. I get some strange looks now and then but they're prolly from people who only go to exercise for an hour. I doubt they realize I'm there half the day. Please take care of yourself Thistleberry! We luv u!

Thanks for the advice, ladies. I've been trying to not let quite so much time pass between eating and have endeavored to take my pre and post cardio nutrition more seriously. I'm always careful about it when I lift but I tend to downplay my cardio. It's a mental thing, I suspect. I feel like any cardio I do simply can't be all that strenuous to the body by the simple fact that I am the one doing it and I've never been able to handle much. It's wrapped up in identity. Sometimes I forget that I'm now-Thistle instead of old-Thistle.

I didn't wind up going to the classes on Saturday because I overslept. Oops. I ran 3 miles instead. On Monday I did go to both Zumba and Flow but since they were both at night I didn't have any pressing food issues. I made sure to save room in my calorie budget for something to eat after.

Oh, man, though, Zumba? Yeah, I forgot how awful I am at it! I'm tromping around in the back like an elephant all the while with a gormless sort of half smile on my face. And that wouldn't be so bad except that I can't process the moves. I can watch and understand intellectually what is happening and what I'm supposed to do, but my brain just cannot translate it to my body. I try not to mind. I mean, as long as I keep moving and don't knock anyone down then everything is okay.
I also forgot how much you're on the balls of your feet and toes when doing Zumba. I have blisters on both my big toes. (And in my brillance wore heels to work today. Silly, silly me.)

Flow was lovely and I'm glad to be back to it though I'm not big on this release. The sun sals are terrible, though possibly I feel that way because the instructer didn't take much time. I like to stay in down dog for more than 1 second. I was disappointed in the hip openers too. Wednesday classes have my favorite instructor so I'll see then if it's just an instructor style thing. Or maybe she'll have switched out tracks. She likes to do that to keep things from getting stale.

oh thistleberry, you make me laugh! Your description of yourself in zumba sounds like me. I tried it a few times and I was zigging when they were zagging if you know what I mean. My coordination isn't great, and my rhythm is worse if you can believe that. I felt about as graceful as a hippo doing ballet. It's not for me. But I do wanna try it again when I lose a little more weight because I think half of my problem is speed and just not being able to keep up.

had a great workout today. 4 hrs. burned 3117 calories and I feel really good today.

yay! is everyone glad the election is over? I was getting sick to death of those ads. Nite all!

Happy to make you smile.
Yes, so very glad the political commercials are over! Some of them were just so obnoxious.

Decided to go for a run yesterday instead of attending Bodyflow. I only had time for one or the other and it was such a beautiful night. And it's rare that we have so little wind.

I had a great workout. I did my all-time best on the stair machine. It's so hard and I have been building up for a long time. At first I could only do a few minutes, maybe 5. Today I did 40 mins on it! At my weight that burns 766 calories! Also, tonight was RIPPED class. It was tough. My total workout burned 4153 calories in 4 hours. Tomorrow I won't be working out so I'll hit it again on Sat.

Wow, Chubbygirl, you burn so many calories! Congrats on besting the stair machine. That's some crazy good progress.

You are keeping yourself awfully busy, Alaskanlaughter. I hope you're enjoying it.

I wanted to do Zumba this last Saturday but they cancelled the class, so I just did Flow. Went for a run when I got home and, well, that didn't turn out so hot. I tripped and fell. I fell hard. Let me tell you, I fell like I meant it. I managed to roll to the right because I didn't want to jar my knees and that's great and all but my right arm and right hip are a mess of bruises. I have abrasions along my forearms and on the heels of my hands and took a big chunk of skin off my right ankle.

The day didn't improve. I managed to burn my hand, roll my left ankle, and had to pick some glass out of the right (the already hurt one!) when I shattered a glass baking dish. Accident-prone doesn't begin to cover it.

I took yesterday off and I'm thinking I'm going to skip Zumba and Flow tonight. I hate to do it, but I'm so sore. Probably the healthiest thing for me to do is just let my body heal.

I'm healing decently. Still quite sore, but I think I'll be able to handle Flow tonight. I'll just have to be a bit more careful when we're doing things on the right.

i ran HIIT on the treadmill monday and tuesday...i still have a muscle in my upper front leg that's bothering me...today i ran a mile in intervals at a slower speed and my leg still bothered me considerably but i got it done and then i walked on an incline at my fastest pace for the rest of the time...tomorrow i will try HIIT again and see how my leg is doing

i typically do HIIT on fridays also (work out 5 days a week) but i am having a series of allergy tests done friday morning and i'm a little leery of running after having things like that in contact with my skin...because ALL of my reactions occur while running...im having the testing done because i dont know what i'm allergic to...i knew Bayer and Sudafed cause reactions during a run but apparently so does mac n cheese(????) which i ate a bit prior to tuesday's run and had a huge reaction during the run...weirddd

If you can workout Saturday, just give your body the Rest it Needs on Friday for your test. I like a set rotuine, so I know its a kinda errr to go off plan, but Dr. visits are part of our health journey too

Yeah, given your reactions I think I'd recommend that you take Friday off too. That wouldn't be slacking by any means. It's just avoiding making yourself miserable because you know how your body is likely to react.

Gah! I missed Flow yesterday because I wound up having to work far too late. I am bound and determined to go for a run tonight!
