Whole30 Update
Friday, August 05, 2011      1 comments

Well, I suppose I should comment on the Whole30 project that I started with Jenna at The Paleo Project* and a bunch of other ladies. We actually have a long email chain going, full of questions and answers and everyone encouraging each other, wh... Read more

Based on my super scientific Googling of "shoulder blade pain swimming", I think I might have swimmer's shoulder. The truth is, my right shoulder sort of hurts most of the time. I carry all of my tension in my right shoulder, which is exacerba... Read more

My firm just donated $500 to Swim Across America! I sent out an email to all the attorneys last night, letting them knowing I will be swimming to raise money for cancer research. The firm doesn't have a problem with us letting people know when w... Read more
Mean Girl - Not So Mean Actually
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      4 comments

The mean girl was nice to me today. Maybe it was because her buddy the guy wasn't there today. Maybe it was because we swam side by side the whole time and I kept up with her and so she considers me an equal now. Maybe she was just PMSing 2 w... Read more

This past weekend the weather was absolutely perfect! Sunny, clear, not too hot. Amazing! Unfortunately, I had to work on Saturday, so I had to cancel our weekend camping/hiking trip. But it wasn't so bad. I brought everything I neede... Read more

Fitnessista ( fitnessista.com/2011/07/

Swim Challenge Update
Monday, July 25, 2011      1 comments

Just in case you were wondering, the Swim Challenge is going great! I'm counting Week 3 as a success because even though I only swam 3 times that week, I showed up at the gym for the 4th swim, and it's not my fault the pool was closed. I don't g... Read more
Fitbit Results Lately: Am Slug
Monday, July 25, 2011      4 comments

I love my Fitbit, but the bummer part is that in the same way that your body adapts to exercise, the Fitbit adapts too. So my one hour of swimming in the morning 4 times a week is not giving me as big a bang for my buck as it was a few weeks ag... Read more

Joining Masters swimming has been awesome. I have 2 coach-planned workouts per week and generally get nothing but encouragement from the other swimmers. Only...I got moved up a lane, right? There's another woman in my lane who is kind of ... Read more

(Only 5 months since we all learned how crazy Charlie Sheen really is, and that subject line already feels dated) I feel awesome!! That's pretty much all there is to it. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed for the first time in M... Read more
Reason #427 Why It's Best To Just Stay Away From the Carbs & Caffeine
Monday, July 18, 2011      3 comments

Detox sucks. I suppose I could just leave it at that, but maybe if I give more details, I will remember this the next time I decide drinking 3-4 Diet Cokes a day is an AWESOME idea. Basically, I've had a headache since Saturday afterno... Read more
Whole30 Fail
Friday, July 15, 2011      2 comments

So remember that whole food discussion I had not so long ago and how I was going to do a WHOLE30 and get on the Paleo train? Well, it didn't work out like I hoped it would. First of all, there is food in the fridge that I just didn't want to was... Read more
I Need A Ruling Here...
Friday, July 15, 2011      4 comments

I'm not going to meet my challenge of swimming 4 times a week for Week 3. I know this because after a Herculean effort this morning to pull myself out of bed after not getting a lot of sleep on Wednesday night, giving a 2-hour presentation yeste... Read more
Let's Talk Food
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      4 comments

I've decided to take on a food challenge in addition to my swimming challenge. I think I've got the swimming pretty well under control, and I've succeeded with fitness challenges before so I know I can push myself to get this one done too. ... Read more
