3 Injuries, taking care of myself, and the La Jolla Half Marathon
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      6 comments

I'm rapidly discovering that I need to stop trying to do more than is reasonable with my workouts. I'm suddenly experiencing injury after injury and it's getting old. I mentioned in my last blog that over the holiday, the fact that I was r... Read more
What I Did Over my Christmas Vacation: Calf issues & House Cleaning
Monday, January 04, 2010      13 comments

Oh boy. What a couple weeks! It had its ups and downs. On the good front - I did an incredible amount of cleaning, organizing, and purging in my house. Since I don't have a lot of time as a mostly-single working/long-commuting mom to 2 l... Read more

On December 18th I asked for questions for a blog where I just answer them. Here's the blog. Thanks for the questions! This was fun! Question (DANCINGPENGUIN): What's the deal with this super hydration measuring scale? Is it like ... Read more

Wednesday, December 23, 2009      3 comments

I had a good weigh-in on Monday. I was back in the 153's. I'm really quite happy here. My pants are fitting better. I've been able to wear one of my new pairs of Size 6 Lee Rider jeans (I include the brand and type since different brands are... Read more
Ask Me A Question, and I found a new Peanut Butter!
Saturday, December 19, 2009      14 comments

I've decided that I'd like to do one blog where I just answer other people's questions; about anything. I figure I do enough brain dumping in here that anyone who reads my blogs on even a semi-regular basis knows just about all there is to know... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Pushups, Pullups, Blue Cards, Wild Animal Park, and Cookies, whew!
Thursday, December 17, 2009      9 comments

Wow! 17 comments and counting on my last blog. I guess posting a photo of myself in leather turned out to be pretty popular! Tee hee! Thank you to everyone who posted a comment on my page, blog, and/or photo. I'll be trying to get to everyo... Read more

I guess I should take a full week off of pushups and pullups more often! I did my arm routines (pushups and the 20 Pullup Challenge workout) last Wednesday and then layed off them before the triathlon. Then on Sunday (after the Tri) and Monda... Read more
Injury Recovery Plan, New Clothes Arrived, and Problems with Steve's Job
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      12 comments

I'm still limping a bit from my calf injury at my Sunday Triathlon. But I'm getting better each day, so that's a good sign. I can tell I didn't do any real damage (like tearing or anything). In fact, you can't even tell I'm limping when I wal... Read more
The Quest for the Final 9.8: Triathlon Report
Monday, December 14, 2009      12 comments

I posted on my feed status the day before the race that my left calf had tightened up and might cause me a problem for my triathlon. Unfortunately, it did. I've experienced this problem before. The way to fix it is to take massive doses of Ib... Read more
Triathlon playlist, triathlon clothes (w/ photos), and my Christmas Party Dress
Thursday, December 10, 2009      11 comments

Well, let's get off the heavy psychological topics and back onto something fun. Right now I'm baking cookies for a Christmas party tomorrow. As soon as the last batch comes out in 8 minutes I'll be hitting the treadmill while they cool. I... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Why do I feel the need to qualify my accomplishments?
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      9 comments

Okay, here it is... blog #2 in a single day. My previous blog was about the significance of the number 155 in my life and why it's not a coincidence that I've stalled for the last few weeks right at 155. This blog will also be on a psychol... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Magic Numbers and Psychological Barriers
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      3 comments

I had a pretty good workout yesterday. Not ideal, but pretty good. I tried again to reach 7 pullups and didn't get it done. Nor did I fully accomplish the 6,5,6,5,6 that makes up the previous workout in the plan. But I did 6,5,4,5,6 with a b... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Rain, annoying scale, and the Awesomeness of Strength Training
Monday, December 07, 2009      6 comments

It has been raining and cold here today. Yes, I know that most of you reading this are living in snow right now, but I'm going to whine anyway. It's my Southern California duty. I don't think I'd care that much (well, AS much) if it weren't f... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Did My Practice Triathlon Today
Saturday, December 05, 2009      7 comments

Today has been a busy day! It started with going to the gym with the kids at 9am (okay, my day started at 6:30am, but I figure that feeding the kids and doing odds and ends around the house is just not that fascinating) Today's plan was to sim... Read more
The Quest for the Final 10: Lousy workout.
Friday, December 04, 2009      7 comments

Ugh, I had a lousy workout last night. It surprised me. I've had uninspired workouts, or ones in which I'd done so much lately that I was tired, but not one where my capability dropped noticeably an unexplainably. I got to my workout last nig... Read more
