Just keep swimmin'
Friday, July 19, 2013      0 comments

For various reasons I have fallen off swimming m-w-f, but I am getting better about dragging the family to the swim club to make up workouts. I am on my 2nd card with the lunch pool, and I kinda thought I would never use a card up! I am hav... Read more

I have been swimming at lunch for 3 days a week (MWF) and its been a huge stress reliever. I have gone from swimming 8 laps of freestyle, barely.. To 11 laps and it doesn't bother me too much I am just edgy about jumping up my mileage and overlo... Read more

I'm back!

It's not because I have had a job for 100 days (since the end of January) that with a 50 hour week it's hard to find time to work out (12 hours out of the house!). It's not because I now have 2 pairs of pants that don't fit because my weakn... Read more
Torn tendon
Friday, October 28, 2011      0 comments

What's worse than a sprained ankle? going past that and tearing the tendon. I went for the brace and crutches as I didn't want to have the muscle and tendon atrophy in a cast. Sure... I could stay off it! ha. I have not followed the ... Read more

Remember the old "I am hoping this will be a place to "get back in the routine" for when I get bumped off track. I find I get in a groove with working out and eating right but after a while, something happens (bad cold, schedule change) and I do... Read more

Why yes! That does explain a lot. (in figuring out the title) If you suffer along with me, we get to my new plan for food. This guy hit my husband's car and totaled it. I am happy my husband is fine, but it feels like it's been a VERY slo... Read more
got my swim on, go me!

Swimming today was a big milestone for a couple of reasons. 1) It could look a lot like the beginning of a swim program. When people ask me about a TRI, I explain I have 2 monster issues; no swim program and a 44lb bike. Getting that 3rd... Read more
So pounded.

My bike ride was a hard push yesterday (try and find a group I missed the ride start for) and then in the evening I decided to use my 30 minutes or so to see how fast I could run a mile. Hard. Like race hard. (okay honestly if it was a race I wo... Read more
Scientist of me

I ran out the door this morning w/o any breakfast. Okay this workout bar that is mostly protein and has a low GI index. Few of the 100 or so calories are from sugars my body can get to after fasting 14 hours. You know how my cardiologist ... Read more
Wow... kinda harsh & disappointing
Friday, January 07, 2011      2 comments

Over the past year I had started to figure out that working out is fantastic for my sanity, my mental stability, my health, and feeling strong in my body. That said, I can ride my bike 10 hours, burn 7,000 calories, but no, that will not result... Read more
One day at at time....

I had a REAL struggle with not eating after dinner last night. I ate a couple of cuties in the hopes they were sweet, healthy, and were at least a healthy carb. Finally had to resort to gum (the strawberry shortcake stuff) This is the par... Read more

I have gained about 7 pounds since the beginning of November... and funny, I notice a number of blogs and status updates grumbling about the same phenomena! I went to track my food today... and my items are disappearing. I wonder if I should... Read more
Quirky running thing with pace.
Saturday, December 04, 2010      0 comments

Did a great run on a paved trail Friday, and noticed a funny thing... my pace has improved. I have 2 ideas about this. It could be all the rest.... yeah with a sick kid it's far more than "running every other day" and I could just be super... Read more
cycling short fustration and sizing quirks.
Saturday, December 04, 2010      1 comments

so here I am, looking and looking at REI.com at the tiny sizes of cycling shorts for women. I was so grateful when I tracked down the "Moving Comfort Cadence Capri" that I snatched up the last pair I could find on the internet. I had thought th... Read more
