Thank God for Don't Walk Symbols

It is my third day of vacation and I still haven't shaken my headache. The problem? I think I'm not getting enough water!!! Today I will definately focus on this. I can be so good at getting my water in while I am at work, I have to get more motivated to change my habits when I am on vacation.

Knowing that I would probably be going a bit over my points while on vacation has motivated me to walk a bigger area. Instead of my regular route I have went further down the hill by three roads and therefore when I am looping around I have to walk further up the hill to get home.

It is still chilly out but I definitely don't feel it. You would think it was July with the amount of sweat dripping off me while I am huffing and puffing up the hill. On a definite plus side, when it really is July I will have some more weight off and probably won't look like such a hot mess coming up the hill.

On another plus side-I think my shin splints are gone. I was having them for months and ppl on the weight watcher forums were saying maybe it was my sneakers. I'm hoping for new sneakers for Christmas so I didn't change them yet. But the splints are gone! Is it possible that I was just carrying too much weight on them? I know I am! haha but I wonder if that was the reason for them?


  1. Hey, sorry you're still not feeling well. I hope the water works - that often works for me. I find I get shin splints whenever I start a new walking program and they go away once my legs are used to it. Stretching helps as well...but less weight on your legs is definitely a big plus!

  2. The water may help and certainly won't hurt. Hope you feel better!

  3. Ugh, I battled the shin splints a few months ago, and it was NOT fun. I'm glad yours are gone.

    Feel better!

  4. Thanks everyone. I'm so glad they are gone, hopefully for good.
