Okay, I've thought them over and I just want to continue on what I did last month. Since I'm still working on 5K training, I don't want to add in something horribly new and mess that up just yet. So, here we go.

Start of the month measurements!
Just a quick post because I need to get to the gym early before plans for the day [I rearranged my gym schedule this week so I wouldn't have to get up early on Saturday, and instead now I'm up early on Wednesday!]. Since it's the beginning of th... Read more
In an effort to put a little more whimsy in my life, I put streamers on my bike today.
I've had these streamers for almost as long as I've had this bike [almost two ye... Read more
I am overweight!
Official weigh in yesterday. I was down 3.5 pounds which is really good. I'm not expecting to lose anything this week since that seems to be my pattern, but maybe that'll change now that I seem to have figured out the calorie situation [weeks I ... Read more
ankle and running musings
I've come to the conclusion that I might be babying my ankle. I don't have any pain on it [aside from when I walk on it wrong, which is a side effect of trying to walk on the inside of it to avoid pain for the last five months] but still, I'm re... Read more
got some bad news today
I had my whole blog post planned out in my head while I was at the gym [does anyone else do that while they're working out? Just me? Okay then...] and now I have a completely different subject to talk about. When I got home from the gym, there w... Read more
Yesterday, I had a rough workout at the gym but I chalked it up to it being early in the morning [9am, and I've said previously that I am NOT a morning workout person] and doing tae bo for the first time in a month and a half the previous night.... Read more
I finally set up my exercise room in my house!
It was long and exhausting and I didn't get to the gym because of it [although I'm going to do some tae bo after I finis... Read more
Okay, I said that I wouldn't start doing official 5k training until August because I'm working on adding minutes slowly to make sure my ankle handles it. But it turns out that sparkpeople's "5K Your Way" training actually starts out with four mi... Read more
the good and the bad of the day
Well, I had to go to the bike shop today. I'd known for a while that my rear wheel was messed up, but it was manageable. But on Sunday's bike ride, two spokes broke and it got incredibly mis-aligned and was out of true. I had to ride the last ha... Read more
I just want to swim!
Today's bike ride was SO MUCH FUN! Well, aside from the part where a bee flew into my eye and stung me. Yeah, that wasn't really fun [although I found it extremely funny and couldn't stop laughing]. But everything else was. I'm so glad I went, a... Read more
Today is my half-birthday and it's such an amazing change from where I was six months ago in January. I was steadily gaining on the scale, depressed, spending every day in my bed. I was a shut-in and hated what I'd become but had no motivation t... Read more
Rough day at the gym
You know those days where you just can't get your body to cooperate? That was today for me. Maybe because I got less sleep/rest than usual today [I was up at 7:30 and out of bed by 9, whereas I usually sleep past 8 and laze about in bed until 10... Read more
What makes an athlete?
A friend of mine called me an athlete this morning. I was shocked. I don't consider myself an athlete at all, just maybe in the beginning stages of possibly becoming one. Especially since this friend regularly runs half marathons and is running ... Read more

if it's not broken, don't fix it.
I guess this was one of those weeks where you can do everything perfectly and it just doesn't show. I know these weeks happen. But it doesn't mean that I'm still not frustrated.
I was at the gym three times this week, and went for long bike... Read more
