So what’s up?

The last week or so has been brutal for a number of reasons. However, part of the agony was self-inflicted. I started a new exercise routine and did it 2 days in a row. I was so sore that I could barely walk. :bored:

One of the thought distortions common in eating disorders is “perfectionism”. I’ve talked about this wrt exercise before. So, in an attempt to reorder my thinking about “exercise”, I decided that I would try stepping up and down on a step aerobic step while watching Heroes on my computer. I had 8 episodes of Heroes languishing on Tivo, so it made sense to me that I could use this as an opportunity to do something that I like, i.e. watch Heroes, that is something that I consider to be a pleasure. And while I’m watching Heroes, I can step, too.

So, I did the stepping thing last Wednesday and last Thursday. I was so sore Friday in the muscles in my calves that I could barely walk.

I was still very sore on Saturday which I spent 10 hours on my feet, hawking Decades of Style patterns at Maker Faire.

Good news: I stepped again this morning and have no soreness (yet?).
