Unable to train yesterday due to a company project all day Kick-Off Meeting then by the time I got home late at night, I was too tired.
 
I will go to OC this weekend and just decided to do long runs (easy pace) to make up for these past 2 days.  Also will swim in the ocean and try to guesstimate 1 mile....

Silly guy got the giggles when it was time for his picture :).
Turned cool here again - 55 degrees here this morning! Feels like Fall instead of Summer. Some friends stopped by last night so we didn't get the kids to bed until 10:00. They won't be up and ready to go so I can get in a swim at the Y before I teach my class. DH is out of town for meetings so I will probably be on the trainer for a workout  I guess.

6:22am:  I'm ready for the weekend.  Just sayin'.
Another gorgeous day!  I have a trainer beatdown after work, but hope to get outside for a nice walk/jog afterwards.  Gotta take advantage of these perfect days.
I leave for Canada next weekend!  Aack!  I have a lot to do between now and then, that's for sure.
I listened to an awesome podcast last night on my walk ... The TED Radio Hour show from last week called Champions is definitely worth a listen to.  There are 4 segments in all, but the interviews with Diana Nyad and Amy Purdy were outstanding. Incredibly inspiring.

A little fun in the pool.  I was up and moving faster than the sun so I went to the pool instead of the lake.  I have another swim tomorrow so that will be in the lake.

I took some tylenol pm last night cause that sting hurt so bad.  Slept through my alarm clock this morning.  Sucker still hurts.  If the storms clear out I'll go to the gym to swim this evening.

"GET TO MILE 18 on the run!"

July 23, 2014
Inspires : 2

Mostly just a few notes to myself:

- Getting hopefully a better bike fit on Friday after work (taking off a bit early) which I didn't note in yesterday's log.

- Can't drink Diet Coke (or have caffeine for that matter) during the evening. Went to dinner last evening after the swim with friends Jenn and Mike S. Not sure if it was the different food but probably was the few Diet Cokes I drank that kept me up last evening though I was tired. Paying for that today and hopefully I'm okay to exercise later. If not, I will take a down or lighter day and just ensure I get to bed to sleep.

Stats taken after run and before dinner, %water 70.6, muscle 39.4, bone 4.1. It started to storm shortly after I got home and it was starting to get late. So, decided to just get the run done on the treadmill at the gym. This worked out fairly well and did me some good because I was seriously thinking about bagging the workout since I was feeling a bit tired. But, I felt pretty good during and[...]

Day #40--326 days until the Utah Valley Marathon

So I am officially morbidly obese now. That came on the same day that I was told that I should probably be on blood pressure medicine, followed by splitting my only pair of shorts in front of my in-laws.

I need to get my stuff together.

Back Day.

Put on my cycling clothes the other day and I felt like a stuffed  sausage. Tried to find something to wear for family pics and every skirt or pair of pants I put on was uncomfortably tight. Lately every month with my cycle I feel terribly bloated but it does not go away. I feel like I gain extra weight every month. So I decided yesterday I would try to clean up my eating and get on the scale (I rarely weigh myself). Then I made chocolate chip cookies - brilliant :).
Developed a headache yesterday afternoon, still lingering a little this morning.
Went over to Tiff's MIL's house today to pick green beans. She said she had 2 rows that needed to be picked and they have all they need. Picked for 2.5 hours thankfully my MIL will can all these for me. Maybe I better learn how to do that myself sometime.
The pool project continues. It is nothing but a giant mess right now! Today they brought another load of water, back filled some more and did some stuff with pipes.
