First long(ish) ride of the season

Friday, April 06, 2012      3 comments

Today's bike ride: 19 miles. Ended up very rubber-legged at the end, but that was at least partially hydration issues. When I finally stopped to drink because I couldn't climb the hill out of the valley, I basically emptied my entire quart bottl... Read more

I am more than my dress size, more than the sum of my scale

Wednesday, April 04, 2012      17 comments

There is nothing sadder to me than hearing someone say, "I can't do _____ until I lose weight." Well, maybe the one sadder thing is when I realize that I've been saying it to myself. Now, there are some hard limitations. I'm not going to be... Read more

Biking, day 2

Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

I had a doctor's appointment, and then an appointment for a haircut. Neither are very far away, and I'd planned on biking. Then it wasn't as warm as I thought it was going to be. I said to hubby that maybe I should reconsider. "Go," h... Read more

30 days of biking

Monday, April 02, 2012      7 comments

I've signed up for the 30 days of biking challenge, and yesterday I rode 11. The challenge is to bike every single day of April, even if it's just around the block. I wouldn't have gone yesterday, I don't think, but for the challenge calling to ... Read more

How to get my groove back?

Saturday, March 31, 2012      4 comments

My brain keeps telling me that there is no reason for me to still be so weak. I should be recovered. My body keeps falling over in a heap. I am not going to let this discourage me. I am getting more done before collapse time every day... Read more

Good enough to eat!

Thursday, March 29, 2012      2 comments

My mouth is finally to the point where I can eat without excruciating pain! Which meant that last night I enjoyed rather a bit more than I should have of the good dinner I made. The feeling of fullness disrupted me sleep, and reminded me that I ... Read more

What a day!

6 month Sparkversary award 9,000 fitness minutes 20,ooo Spark Points Talk about a confluence of things coming together. I got in a workout, but that's about all I was good for. It's good that I'm getting back into it, and stronger ... Read more

Making peace with myself

Saturday, March 24, 2012      18 comments

I sat in the movie theater surrounded by the delicious smell of popcorn, but didn't want any. A friend brought over home-baked cookies, and I ate only one. We bought my favorite Girl Scout cookies, and they are still in the snack drawer, leaving... Read more

I went for a walk!

Friday, March 23, 2012      4 comments

It was slow, and I am worn out. But I got in a little exercise! Yay for recovery mode! Now I just have to be careful not to measure my progress against my previous workouts. I have to be patient and work back up to that!... Read more

I left the house!

Thursday, March 22, 2012      6 comments

And not just for another trip to the doctor! I had to make a court appearance, so had to get up on time and dress like a grownup and drive into town. I can unequivocally say that, yes, I needed a nap afterward, but I was able to get through... Read more

Not mono!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012      8 comments

Hooray, it's not mono. Doc thinks it's a viral infection called herpangina, and that it will resolve itself in a few more days. I still feel middling crappy and find it next to impossible to eat, but I feel a bit better than I did yesterday. By ... Read more

The doctor now thinks I have mono. I just kind of don't have words.... Read more

Have to think about the summer schedule

Monday, March 19, 2012      6 comments

I'm still recovering from this strep/viral combination--the most prominent remaining symptom being that my mouth is so sensitive that eating is painful. But I have faith that this will be gone in a day or two. So I am turning my eye on the comin... Read more

But, Sparky, you need to understand!!

Sunday, March 18, 2012      10 comments

Being as sick as I've been, eating has been next to impossible. First, it's phenomenally painful to swallow anything other than tepid water--and even that hurts some. Second, my appetite has been pretty much zero, so what I've eaten has been the... Read more

Frustration is...

Saturday, March 17, 2012      7 comments

Waking up thinking you might be feeling a little bit better--then swallowing water and being brought almost to your knees from the pain. I really want this to stop.... Read more
