Positive - Two days of exercise is a great thing in my books.  Also? My muscles hurt.  That's a positive.

Plan for today:

Breakfast - 2 multi-grain toast, pb, 1/2 banana; coffee with sugar - DONE

Lunch - fish salad, cooked vegetables (fish to be determined) - DONE (it was salmon)

Snack - 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup LF yogurt, fibre powder - 1/2 DONE

Dinner - 1 baked chicken breast, cooked vegetable, 1 cup brown rice

Exercise - SHRED

Other - dishes, dentist appt, gift shopping

I have the day off tomorrow.  Neener, neener, neener...

try to drink a hot tea before going to bed, it gives you an additional comfort

Ok. so.

May 2nd. Sunday.

I will run 1 kilometre. Not quite 1/2 mile.  My goal is to do it in 7 minutes.

Gotta start (again) somewhere.

biscottibody59 on 04/29/2010:
I'm just getting back into jogging of late. I feel like I'm starting over each new outing. I feel differing degrees of "when will this end" and "oh this is doing me so much good I'm sure" along the way!

Have a good race! Keep up the good work!

So yesterday after work I was thinking about skipping out on doing whatever it was I had planned to do and just lay on the couch and veg.  I still wanted to watch the last two episodes of Taking the Stage, and the movie Stomp the Yard.  It was the perfect opportunity.  I had nothing else to do, right?

Then I got a phone call from my Mom.  She had some boxes that belonged to me and wanted to bring them over.  While I was waiting for her to show up, the dog and I went outside to do some more raking in the backyard.  Mom came, we went through the boxes, then she helped me rake some of the flower beds.

Some phone calls and paperwork after that, and it was already 8:30pm!  Essentially, I didn't accomplish anything that I had planned (which I had already decided to skip anyways), but I got a lot more raking done and the dog got some much needed exercise!  After doing some laundry and picking up around the house, I decided to try and watch Taking the Stage and managed to get those two episodes in.

Tonight, because I procrastinated and was lazy, I have a lot to do to get ready for the girls trip on the weekend.  But just this morning I was asked by a co-worker to go for a couple drinks after work.  Hmmn.  It's looking like Sloth is going to win the battle again today.  And you know what bothers me the most about this choice?  I don't really care.

I was asked to run as part of a relay team for the 10k run in August.  I was going to run the timed 5k, but I think the relay might be more fun and a bit more of a challenge.  I believe, as per my posts of late, that I'm going to need a bit of a challenge to get me going again.  Yes, I think this may be the kick in the butt I need.

I'm writing off April.  It sucked.  I know it's not over yet, but I think I can confidently tell y'all that the rest of it will probably suck.  Everything except for the trip to the States this weekend with my girls.  That part won't suck.  Ok.  I'm done.

hollybelle on 04/22/2010:
Well, there's always May!


KathyBlue on 04/22/2010:
yeah, don't give up that easily. May's knocking on the door.

So yesterday afternoon at work was horribly boring and long.  So much so that I eventually broke down and bought myself a chocolate bar.  I had to get through the rest of the day somehow.  And it worked.  I had energy for about three hours afterwards, wowzers.  So now I have a question:

What are some good energy boosters for mid-afternoon?  If I had the energy, I could run right after work with the dog, instead of himming and hawwing and eventually opting out of exercise.  I had lots of energy yesterday from the chocolate bar, but eventually I crashed and well, I know that milk chocolate isn't exactly a health benefit - especially if you're eating it every other day.  Just a lot of suggestions would really be helpful - i'd appreciate your input.

Mmmmn.  I'm sitting here munching away on a banana/chocolate chip muffin for breakfast.  Bad choice.  Yes, they sell stuff like this at a HEALTHCARE centre.  I can't believe my luck either!!!!!

Yesterday after work I called up a friend and we took our dogs for a run.  And when I say that, I mean the dogs ran, not us.  We walked, which was nice too.  I think we were gone for about 45 minutes in total.  Not bad.

When I got back home, I made myself something to eat, washed the dishes, then gingerly stretched out the muscles in my body that were screaming at me.  It didn't help.  I was in pain all evening.  To top it all off, I decided that I needed to wax my legs!  OUCH!  Two hours later and i'm ready to either collapse into bed or bawl my eyes out.  I did neither, instead I watched tv for half an hour, and went to bed far later than I wanted to.

A friend suggested that did I possibly crack a rib and is that why i'm in such pain?  I laughed then, but i'm not so sure now.  Another day or two will tell the tale, but today I am still in pain and can't sneeze without also whispering "ouch, ouch, ouch" at the same time.  And I sneeze a lot at work.  I know it's strange, but it's true.  I'm allergic to my job.  Everything else on my body still hurts as well, so i've probably just torn or stretched some muscles that I haven't used for awhile.

I don't know what's going on today.  I'm playing it by ear.

KathyBlue on 04/13/2010:
banana and chocolate, for me, is not a good pair. I don't like the mixture of the tastes of those two.

The dog park fundraiser on Thursday evening was a success, and a wonderful time.  I am continually amazed at the generosity our small community has shown in the past year, not only regarding our fundraiser, but in support of other individuals as well.  If we are rich, it is a richness in our hearts and a compassion unmatched.

ANYhoo,

Friday evening I slacked and slept most of it away.  It felt like I was coming down with a stomach flu so I wanted to take it easy.  I'm glad I did, because by Sunday I was feeling much better.

Saturday morning I had another meeting for the dog park, then went out for coffee with friends.  After that, I went home and did some tidying up.  Not even close to the tidying up I should have been doing, but oh well!  Saturday evening a friend made supper and we spent the evening watching Charmed episodes!  Today I also decided to start earnestly looking for a BBQ.  I haven't found one yet.

Sunday morning I had slo-pitch practice, which brought up the importance of buying myself a new ball glove and new batting gloves.  More money to be spent, sigh.  After that, I took the dog for some exercise, and spent an hour or so in the yard, picking up debris from the horrible winds we had last week and raking up leaves and doggy doo.  Once that was finished, a couple of friends came over for drinks on the deck (how wonderful to sit outside again!).  Then, I drove around town looking for another friend of mine, finally found her at home, chatted, left, went for supper to a friend's place, played some Wii... jeepers, Sunday was filled right up.

This morning when I woke up I thought I had died and gone down below.  Everything hurts.  Slo-pitch, batting, throwing... works a whole new group of muscles.  My left side in particular is kind of bothering me.  I continually forget that i'm 33 and should seriously think about starting to protect my body instead of working it into the ground.  It takes me an extra two days to recover from things these days, LOL.  Too bad it feels great to hurt like this.

Sometimes it's good to forget your age and just keep on going!

Sounds like you're quite busy there:-)

Yesterday was good.  I didn't choose lunch very well (A&W momma burger), but dinner was chicken and rice and I snacked on cheese and crackers later. 

I had an evening meeting for our slo-pitch league which dragged on for so long that it was time for bed when I finally made it home.  I hate meetings like that, but we had a great turnout so i'm not going to complain much about it.  Now I just have some paperwork to do and we'll be able to start our season beginning of May!  I can't wait!

I did manage to take the dog for a walk.  We went to the park and ran around for a bit, until her tongue started hanging out of her mouth, then we walked home.  She drank a good cup of water as soon as we got back into the house.  I think she is out of shape!

Tonight I am attending a supper fundraiser.  I am a member of our community's dog park committee and we're trying to raise funds to build a dog park in town.  This supper will raise at least half the amount we need, so it's a big deal for us.  I took the afternoon off of work so that I could get ready for it, plus do a couple other things I need to do, like make dentist and doctor appointments.

It's busy, but so long as I don't forget what I need to do i'll be ok.  I'm having a BLAST lately!
