Charley Horse   Leave a comment

Talk about painful!!!
It has been years since I have had a Charlie Horse!!
And I do mean years!!!
I have forgotten how painful they are!

I walked last night for over two miles, because I was watching Dr. Oz and he said a person trying to lose weight should walk at least 10,000 steps a day or  some where around 5 miles.
Holy Cow that is a lot of walking.
SO I decided to break it up into two parts.
Walk at least two and a half miles in the morning and two and a half miles in the afternoon.
Well let me tell you I didn’t walk this morning due to this Charley horse.

It hit me around four am
And I had to get out of bed, aching and nearly crying with the intense pain in my right calf.
How horrific!

The internet says to ice it, and drink milk (before bed) and even have a banana before bed and that will be a sure-fire way of not getting Charley horse’s when you sleep
I will have to try it.
I NEVER want to feel like that again.
IT hurts now to put my full weight on the leg.
So no walking for me until later, (hopefully) so that means I won’t get my ten thousand steps in today.
