Leg isn't NEARLY as tweaky as it was yesterday. Hooray! Still going to keep it rested until Monday or so, but I feel so much more optimistic about things now.
I'm still a little depressed, but I'm not going to let it get to me.

Son of a...
Well, I've managed to hurt myself already.
I was over halfway into my run yesterday when I had to dodge a car that was careening down a street in my 50% sidewalk-less neighborhood... I ran out of the street and up onto one of the sloped par... Read more
Fitness is hard.
One of the hardest things about finding and sticking to an exercise routine is figuring out what you organically love to do. If you love to do something that happens to also be physically active, it's much more likely that you'll stick to it an... Read more
What a difference a day makes...
...24 little hours....
...brought the sun and the flowers...
...where there used to be rain...
I love that song. :)
Logged 2.5 miles yesterday, and even had a little extra "pop" at the end, so I ran some bonus extra time.

Lots going on...
So, I went for a doctor's appointment yesterday... a follow-up.
My weight hasn't budged, despite eating correctly and exercising. My energy is lower than it's ever been. Oh, and my body temperature is hovering around 96 degrees.
They... Read more
So, we're supposed to get the whopper of the season tomorrow.
And you know... I really don't care. I don't. It's the last one we're going to get for the year, it'll melt quickly, and if I get the day off - so much the better. I'm expecti... Read more
Mind over matter
I ordered a beach towel today.
I ordered a beach towel that will look super cute with my super cute new bathing suit that I plan to rock from Memorial Day clear through the end of September.
I do this for two reasons:
1) I'm now ... Read more
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiny day.
Oh, yes I can make it now, the pain is gone.
All of the bad feeli... Read more
And I'm not real surprised I'm dragging... looking at the calendar, PMS should be starting fairly soon, and that always zaps me. Fweh. Just gotta take really good care of myself and push through! I'm on a good roll right now and I don't want ... Read more
Did GREAT yesterday...
...and even though my workout was a bit of a slog this morning, I did it. I'm part of a challenge group on Facebook, and I have to say that now that I've made the choice to engage with it, it really is helping. They started a 40-Day Lenten Cha... Read more
I don't care WHAT the thermometer says...
...and apparently, neither do the birds!
The other day, I saw a whole gang of robins... they looked fat, cold, and pissed off, but they were THERE. They were all kind of huddled together (not surprising, I'd be too, were I in their positio... Read more
Encouraging news - finally!
Well, I had my follow-up with the doctor today... and I saw my regular doctor's P.A., which suits me just fine. I have a great deal of respect for P.A.s; I once had a very good friend who was an excellent P.A., every bit as thorough as a doctor... Read more
Normally I wouldn't be so excited about allergies, but allergies are a harbinger of SPRING. Bring it! I'll happily deal with sneezing my face off if it means we get warmer weather soon! :)
I don't know why, but I am in a ridiculously goo... Read more
One Week of Shakeology
So, I've been drinking Shakeology for a week...
And I admit, I do feel pretty good. I do like it - I guess we'll see what kind of results I get from it after a month.
One thing I've noticed improvement in, believe it or not, is my SKI... Read more
...IS GROSS. Don't even bother! Bleh!!! I was burping it up all morning.
Then again, I don't do especially well with strawberry-flavored *anything.* So take from that what you will.
Feeling much more sprightly today, even though I'... Read more
