Friday, May 04, 2012      9 comments

Went to the Doctor yesterday for my ribs. Not broken, just wrenched badly. Ibuprophin for pain and keep up with the cardio. Dont do any major upper body. (What's the name of that website that helped you loose all the weight?) So I went ... Read more

Thursday, May 03, 2012      7 comments

I dont normally read the Happiness Project blog. I should, I like the message, but somehow it frequently gets lost in the shuffle of Sparking and cat videos. Today the universe spoke to me and asked me to share today's post with you: ... Read more
Lentil burgers and a day of rest

1) My ribs still hurt. Logically, this happened when I fell on Friday (Its Tuesday as I type, 5 days later) but I didnt start feeling it until Sunday. It feels exactly like a stitch in my side. But instead of going away in minutes, its still ... Read more

Some days you train, and other days you are just trying to melt the fat. I'm currently sporting some beautiful bruises from Friday's gravity adventure. My hand took the worst of it (no colors there tho) and is still in a bit of pain when I... Read more

I fell off the bike
Friday, April 27, 2012      8 comments

ReaIly freakin' cold and windy today. I finally dragged myself outside with the promise that if it was too much I could come home early. Instead I fell while trying to gear shift on a hill (the chain slipped). No blood, but my hand and eg... Read more
You've Come A Long Way, Baby
Monday, April 23, 2012      15 comments

I havent come far enough and dont call me baby. Cool weather in my section of NY has driven me to the gym for the past few days instead of running outdoors. Revisiting where I started, gave me a stark comparison of how far I've come. ... Read more

Whoo, I am tired. Last night's game really took it out of me. Let me do some computer work. (Type, type, type) Hmm. I need to think about this. Let me walk and make myself a cup of tea. (Slurp) (Tap-tap-tap) Now how am I going to phrase th... Read more

Sunday, April 15, 2012      2 comments

I decided to make a mess of the kitchen one day so I dont have to do it multiple times during the week. I made Turkey Salad, chopped the veggies for Turkey Pot Pie, and then made a vinegar coleslaw. I was going to make another fruit salad,... Read more
Playground Strength Training
Thursday, April 12, 2012      5 comments

I've pretty much conquered most of my food demons. (More accurately, I've learned to live with them.) I've got the Cardio thing down. But I really, really, really hate strength training. Sets and Reps are boring. I know I *should* do it. ... Read more
