Hello all my Sparkly friends and fiends!!
I did get a better night sleep thankfully. Up a little around 2, but was able to fall back asleep.
It was 65 degrees, there was some humidity but it was not bad. Got in Week 6 Day 2 (two 10 minute runs). I was so impressed w/ this sight, that I stopped for 2 seconds to grab this pic for you all. This is what I ran towards for the first 1/2 of my run
My BF really does not like the route I take, but it is the best route available right now unless I drive someplace, which is highly doubtful! Personally, I am SHOCKED that I am actually getting up 1/2 hour earlier to run. I have SO NEVER been the morning person! This is the blind curve and why he hates this road. Speed limit is 55, so that translates to 65-70. Thankfully, there is a small shoulder!
For my zucchini bread, I think I got 4 slices off it. I am going to try to re bake it ... couldn't hurt right?
Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!!!

So last night, got to bed an hour early and woke up around 2 a.m. and just couldn't fall back asleep. It's been a while since I've had insomnia this bad. augh. I am sure I drift in an out of sleep but every time I drifted out, I was wide awake.
I'd check the clock. 2:45, 3:02, 3:45 then my BF's alarm goes of some time around 4. Then I finally fall asleep somewhat. My alarm goes off early for a run. I debate about it and figured that I am better off with sleep, so reset the alarm and needless to say, did NOT get in my run today.
I now wish I had. It is 85 feels like 95 heat index and very humid. Doesn't look much like I'll get a power walk in today either, otherwise I will be slimey! Hopefully my BF will be home before me so I can go to Curves instead of waiting for the cable company!
I have friends telling me I am becoming obsessed w/ exercise. hmm I think they are jealous that I ripped out 217 crunches yesterday.
Anyone have experience w/ bread machines? I attempted to make a zucchini bread last night. I think it was too heavy in the wet ingredients. It did not bakc all the way thru so resembles one of those bundt cakes w/ the tunnel of fudge in it. I was running late this morning, so I didn't slice it, but what I did eat off of it was really yummy.

I changed the title of my page yesterday and did some updates, what do you think?
OMG working out at Curves last night after a C25K run in the morning... my legs were not happy campers! So my abs got it as I skipped some of the leg machines and did the ab ones instead.
Hope everyone has a GREAT day...

Talked with the vet last night and I can still ride Biff, but just at a walk. The shoer commented to her that there were still irregularities in the lamanie on the right front. So we are still looking okay.. just going a little slower.. need to be patient.
Got my run in today... wonder how I'll do at curves later! Last time I ran and did curves an hour later I was really weak. But it will be 12 hours, so hopefully not bad. My running and curves work outs will be combined this week because of the dumb rain yesterday. Eh, at least I didn't have to water my tomatoes!
I am really digging having fresh basil! And I just got a great recipe for Baked Grape Tomatoes w/ basil and cornbread, gluten free of course, you MUST look at this.. you can make yours w/ gluten, go for it!
Hope everyone has a GREAT day!!!

It was not a good day Saturday. I was all excited to ride my boy. I went hunt seat to keep as much weight off as possible.
He was a saint Calmly walked off and I had medium contact on the reins the whole time.
The arena was freshly dragged, so great footing. Walked around twice and then asked him to trot. He trotted off calmly and it felt so nice and smooth. I kept telling him what a great boy he was etc, then went to change the rein after trotting around twice and he started to limp slightly.
Not much, but slightly, definitely limping. . So, while he's sound, he cannot handle my weight yet. So I have a call to the vet to see if I should work him any or not. I did hand walk him in the ring Sunday.
I was SO disappointed...I really wanted my baby sound and no longer hurting. I couldn't get over how it made me feel the rest of the day too. I sulked thru cleaning and grocery shopping and tried not to be a downer. But I'm hanging in there. He'll be sound soon enough, just not now.
I also should have been finishing up my period for the second monthly cycle if I was not on Seasonique. so I believe this is also playing into how I was feeling. For the most part, Seasonique is going great. I did have a little bit of cramping Saturday and a little breast sensitivity, but that's it. No break thru bleeding.
On a good note, I have a friend interesting in starting the C25K program and the 200 crunches program. Will be fun to cheer her along. Maybe when she hits week 4 or so we'll do some joint runs together.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and lets have a GREAT week!
