So, on my new bike (which has been quite a disappointment), I made a quick left turn and hit my brakes, as I felt my body going over the bike, I thought - - - so, this how it feels when brakes work. YOU STOP Quickly! My old bike's brakes never q... Read more

Tonight we rode from John Ball to Millenium to Johnson and back and it was a great ride! I felt a little sluggish because I only had 4 hours of sleep last night, but I kept up until my chain fell off 6 times. A bummer for sure, but I was delight... Read more

This week I joined a group of bicyclers who allow me to experience new trails at last! I suppose the trails were always available, but I have been intimidated by unknown areas that lead you to isolated little spots near downtown GR or under a vi... Read more

This past week, I had the opportunity to go to a gym every day. In addition, we took walks and rode our bikes. The beautiful thing is that I feel so much stronger on my elliptical at home! It is as though I've increased my momentum a bit, perhap... Read more

Is This Rice-a-Roni???
Sunday, July 11, 2010      3 comments

In my quest to find the perfect rice (fiber filled but tasty enough that my daughter will eat it!), I purchased a rice medley comprised of 4 types of rice. It is organically grown, and has 4 grams of fiber. But... to no avail - it is a little ch... Read more

I am so glad I went to bed at 11ish last night! I awoke early in the morning before my husband had to rush off to work at around 4:45am. So, my boy (dog- Toby) and I have already had a 45 minute walk and now I am off to the farmers' market. I fi... Read more

This week the dog knocked my iPhone into the pool! I ran into the garage to get a glasses repair kit to remove the battery because it kept restarting itself... and fell on the cement - on my bad knee, with an already torn ACL. I bruised up my ar... Read more

This morning I decided to change my fitness goals (again) to focus more on strength training by taking 2 miles off my mileage each day. (Because time is limited.) I also entered my new weight and was reminded to update my calories. Surprise!!! M... Read more

Time... it goes so quickly. I am concerned that tomorrow is upon us ... Let's face it... I need to get back to Zumba and wearing heals. The irony is that with plantar fasciitis you feel great as long as you keep walking. WTH!? No one wants... Read more

I've read the book and will be lending it to at least one sister soon! I know it will help kick start her in the right direction again, as it did me. I am starting a journal as well, and will be making the occasional entry again on this blog. ... Read more

I am determined to accomplish the bootcamp exercises prior to attacking my day! It energizes me no matter what the focus for the day. I love that! I saved all of the links to my favorites - so after the bootcamp, I will continue on. I enjoy that... Read more
Sparkpeople ... Bootcamp Day2
Monday, May 04, 2009      1 comments

Done! One functioning leg and one not so much... torn ACL and all I completed the video albeit a little slower. I fashioned a band using the longest resistance band I had by tieing a loop at the end. Not such a bad idea, but it did untie itself ... Read more
