Poor sore muscles!posted @5:18pm ET on May 19, 2012
I can't definitely tell that my body has gotten way out of shape over the past few months of not working out as much. I am SO insanely sore. After my 2.5 mile walk yesterday along with the first day of Jillian Micheals 30 Day Shred, my arms, thighs, calves, and shoulders are all killing me. My feet hurt too, but that's mostly because I was at work today for 6 hours, then pretty much came home, changed and went straight back out to walk my 2.5 mile loop.
I can tell my potassium levels are probably getting low, but I don't have any bananas. I went online to see what other foods are packed with potassium so that I will HOPEFULLY not cramp up later tonight in my sleep or something. Turns out, raisins have a decent amount in them, and I just happened to have some in my apartment. So after eating my dinner of whole wheat spaghetti and sauce, I then ate about half a cup of raisins. Hopefully that helps. I've also heard from a friend who used to play soccer hardcore in high school that drinking pickle juice can also help with muscle soreness and cramping. Anyone else ever heard of this?
I'm currently taking a little breather. I just finished dinner and I'm relaxing to a movie for the time being, but once the movie is finished I plan on doing day two of Jillian's workout, then grabbing a shower. After that I plan on playing some video games and just unwinding for the most part.
Anywho, I'm gonna get going. Just wanted to check in with everyone. Hope everyone's having a great weekend so far!
