Some random thoughts...loftmama, we need to dish about writing. For real. Because I MUST. COMPLETE. MY BOOK. I have to. It is about killing me not to. On the bright side, I have recognized a necessary shift in emphasis that would require rewriting anyway, but still.
I am going to fire up Word right after I'm done here, I swear.
ashcav, I have to tell you that your FB profile pic is so adorable it always makes me smile.
mommajb, what lofty said. You totally rock.
Callie! I think about you often...as I often type "marathon" with a "g" on the end. Weird, I know.
I joined the Y today and did an hour on an elliptical. Because I could. I need to get myself together now and have a Y strategy. As in, remember to pack my ear buds, if not the whole iPod, bring a swimsuit because one day I might get the itch to try a lap, etc. I did a couple of machines after the cardio, but I was out of time. I hope I can leave early tomorrow and get it done before dh can even notice the time went anywhere. Anyway, I am
about my membership, and really looking forward to being one of the lucky ones there at 10AM along with a lot of really fit older folks.
Dh sawed the tips of two fingers. Not off, just kind of chewed up. Nothing really to stitch, I don't think, but it looks really painful. He can't do anything with that hand, and annoyingly tucks it into his pocket, which bothers me because I want to look at it. But it also makes me want to
to the bone. Took the kids sledding, and I am one of those people who feels really cold after a long cardio workout. So I stood at the top of a hill in 14F weather watching kids sled down a crazy hill for an hour and a half. Smart, I know. I am on my third cup of tea since.
So, the hope is to dig in and re-lose the weight I have packed on. I'm really, really bummed about gaining so much back, and I am up to the point where I am noticing it in photos of myself. I realized in reading here that, yeah, I did actually start running pushing a double jog stroller. I did that.
I feel like duh, no wonder it's creeping back on. I am
eating more and working less hard. Perfect moment for a new year. I'll keep you posted.
