We have choices with our dreams.   We can dream and do nothing to make the dreams come true.   We can dream and plan to make the dreams come true.  Or we can dream, plan and DO!

If I had a dream to build my own house but just sat on the couch and talked about the dream what would it get me????    Nothing.  

 I would have to take the next step and plan out my the house.....but if I stop there what would it get me?????   Nothing

To build the house I have to plan and get up off the couch and pick up a hammer and build!!!!   

Just do it!!!!    I'm back to the Nike slogan. Which I have talked about on  my blog before.    It makes so much sense to me now on such a deep level!  Weight loss dreams are the same....dreams and plans are not enough....I have to DO!!!!!!!

I made it to the gym yesterday!!!!!    Felt good to do something a little different!!!!   

This morning I went running.    I got back, showered and went to breakfast.   As I stood up from breakfast I groanedZ. For some reason I was sore!!!   I feel a little achy sometimes but my calves are almost never sore!!!!!   

I went to church with a friend...then moved into geocaching.....first few steps on each search was rough but I loosened up each time.    

Not the greatest picture but I HATE these rat caches!  I know they are fake...but they give me the creeps!!!

It wasn't until I got home that I realized that the crampy legs were probably due to dehydration.  I typically drink - good bit of water after a run...but I didn't drink any and headed right out the door.  By 3  when I got home I had still had only consumed MAYBE 8 ounces of water.   NOT enough by a long shot!!!!   Duh!!!!!

I am always crazy thirsty after running, so you are probably right about dehydration causing the soreness. Great job getting that run in!

Glad you figured out the ache and it was an easy fix.

I used to work at a bank and someone there had a fake rat that looked all too real. It was a common prank to put the rat in a chair or drawer in a public part of the branch so that some unsuspecting employee would find it in front of a customer. I learned to watch for chairs that were pushed in a little too close or neatly and drawers that weren't quite shut right.
I'm chuckling now about it.

Ooh, that rat would creep me out as well! Good for you to try something different and go to the gym, you probably used some different muscles there, too, could also cause the achiness? I will never forgot how I got very dehydrated last year over a 24-hour period where I felt super dizzy and was worried that god knows what was wrong with me! Turns out that between the hot weather, exercising and rigorous housecleaning I wasn't drinking enough. Was a little scary because it really spaced me out. So this is a good reminder to keep drinking that water!

"Just do it" is a great slogan! As you know mine is "Do it anyway" and it's making all the difference this time round. Let's do it and build that house! xo
