Last night was the Alicia Keyes concert, which was seriously amazing, so I'm going to just jump in on this blog post! If your a fan of her music, it is a lovely concert and you can't resist the urge to get up and dance along with the crowd! She sang all the favorites as well as some cover songs that was so much fun! She was full of energy and did two encores!! Definitely a treat to start off the week!
Now...Onto Numb Feet! The Battle to be swimsuit ready this Spring has thrown me a few curve balls where I'm debating just how much is normal and what is not? I've been walking at lunch time and hitting the gym hard during the week, which I'm super proud of. *patting myself on the back* I've been trying to time my gym time with my favorite TV Shows so I'm occupied sort of speak while on the treadmill or bike. I will increase my incline or intensity at the commercials! Hey it sounds silly but it's working kind of...
However when I wake up in the morning something odd is happening. When I step onto my carpet to take my first steps to the bathroom, my feet are numb. I step a few more steps and then the pins & needles sensation start to kick in. But after I say 10 steps my feet are back to feeling normal. My feet are not cold so I don't think it's a circulation issue...but it's odd. This has been going on for about a month.
Has that happened to anyone before?
I recently bought some massaging gel inserts to put in my sneakers that is supposed to absorb "shock" so I'm going to see if it makes a difference. If the numbing didn't fade way so soon I would be marching myself to the doctor but it's still pecuilar...
Here are some other things I've noticed happening that are driving me a little bonkers...
1.) I don't like the taste of just plain water...I think Crystal Light's stocks just went up by how much of it I'm drinking. They now have a liquid water enhancer which makes it so much easier than the powder. My favorite is strawberry lemonade.
2.) As I'm walking and exercising certain places on my body are getting cinched in but honestly in the wrong places. My face is the first place to look drawn and this odd place in my hips is disappearing but it's making other parts look bigger...All I can say to this is Grr...I think I may need a lil more of an all over body workout that does not just hit this odd area on my hips.
3.) I've noticed with the warming of temperatures I just have a desire to eat lighter and less. It's more refreshing at lunch to eat a nice salad full of snow peas and spinach then a burger or something heavy. I'm loving this new attitude.
On your weight loss journey, have you encountered any ODD things about your body?
I'd love to hear!
