Running again ... and attack of Flyzilla!
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      1 comments

So, did my first run after the injury on Monday (in my shiny new, half size bigger NB 769s!). Aaron and I went up to Summit and ran on the grass/dirt paths in the median of the road. It's not a hilly route and the grass/dirt is supposed to help ... Read more
Foot is healing. YAY.
Thursday, July 23, 2009      5 comments

So, I did Tae Bo last night. 40 minutes of serious bouncing around on my feet, jumping jacks, you name it. No pain! OMG YAY. I was told by the doc that I can start running again when I walk pain free (check!), do stairs pain free (check!) and ca... Read more
FUN Day Yesterday :) (plus over 1000 calories burned!)
Friday, July 17, 2009      3 comments

Had an awesome day off yesterday. Did my first physical therapy session and like my therapists a lot. He's a very nice guy and was impressed with all my research/work I've been doing with running and eating healthy. So, that was nice to hea... Read more

Going to take the bike out for a quick spin tonight. I found out recently that I'm REALLY close to Como Park where there are running/walking/biking paths around a big lake by the zoo/Japanese Gardens. I'm going to head over and see how easy it i... Read more
Sigh - Feeling off.
Tuesday, July 14, 2009      3 comments

I feel off. I know I've been eating more calories and that's got me a bit worried. I'm still within range but, while I'm usually low-end to middling, I've had a few times in the last week and a half where I'm up near the top. Once I've gone... Read more

I figured I'd introduce Teal'c's brother, who is also coming home to me along with their mum. Meet Daniel! For those familiar with SG1 and the character he's named afte... Read more
Adventures in Injury
Monday, July 06, 2009      1 comments

Sigh. So, had my appt. with the sport doc today for my foot. Looks like it's a mild stress fracture right where I thought. She said that I'm on the lower end of severity, not near a fracture (yet) so I need to avoid all impact-y exercises u... Read more

Size 6 pants? Really?

Soooooo.... Today (* looks at time * erm, yesterday...) I went into Old Navy while Norman was at the vet making urine (lol, he needed a urinalysis and came up empty) and decided to look at pants and such. I really like a pair of pants... Read more
Skinny Pants = Fat Pants, NSV
Friday, June 19, 2009      2 comments

So, the pants I couldn't fit into without feeling pinched only a month ago are now falling off me. I JUST washed and dried my cotton pants and they were loose from minute one. I have to hitch them up on my hips pretty constantly when I move. Um.... Read more
5k and a great weigh in!
Sunday, June 14, 2009      4 comments

Woo hoo. I made it through my race without blowing out my calf. YAY. It was a nice day to run, really sunny and gorgeous. The 5K was a road race, so the heat got to me a bit when we were in full sun on the black black road but I'm very ... Read more
TOM puffiness and thank goodness for kbells!
Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

Okay... it's been like 5 days of my TOM and, while I am not as bad as I've been, I still feel PUFFY and bloated. I apparently don't pay attention to this sort of thing but I could swear I debloated earlier last TOM. Or maybe not. It's depressing... Read more
This injury is annoying ... frustrated!
Tuesday, June 09, 2009      5 comments

So, I decided to try and get my cardio in last night. Since I can't run with my bum leg I decided to try my Tae Bo video. It's a good workout and I always sweat like crazy. Yeah, had to stop about 11 minutes in when it became apparent that bounc... Read more
Slightly injured...
Monday, June 08, 2009      2 comments

Looks like I've got a bum calf. Stupid left leg! It's my own fault, I moved my runs from the largely flat (only a few mild inclines) path around my old neighborhood to the much hillier park in my new one. I also was stupid and increased fro... Read more
Measurement Update

So, I've never really posted this sort of comparison yet and figured what the hey! It's been about 2 months (a week shy) since I've been on SparkPeople in earnest. I'll use those numbers as my "befores". WEIGHT before: 167.5 WEIGHT now:... Read more
