Yesterday I was having some pain in my... my... my groin? The inside of my thigh where my leg attaches to my pelvis. It started Monday night and it still was painful yesterday. I was scheduled to cross train yesterday, which means I usually would go to the Y and do my mobile fit workout (strength training and cardio). Well, yesterday morning we were taking the dogs out to potty, and it was super nice outside! I decided to take Elliott to the zoo. I pulled her around in the zoo in the wagon for about 3 hours, so I counted that as my cross training. That's cross training, right?
We have a zoo membership so we go pretty often. Or at least I thought we did when I was at my heaviest. I anticipated obstacles before we left. There is a restaurant in the zoo that sells all kinds of fried foods that we usually go to to have lunch. I usually would've spent around $15 or more on hamburger, fries, soda, and a similar meal for Elliott. Then I would've eaten what she didn't eat because I hate to see food thrown away. Instead we ate lunch before we left and brought snacks and water with us. I remember going before and having to take many breaks to sit down because I would've been so exhausted. This time we took very few breaks. We had a good time. Here are a few of pictures from our day.
