Yesterday I went on a nice little ride up and down the hills around my neighborhood. It was a nice ride, but I'm still so unused to working up hills that I nearly threw up. Still, I finished all 8.4 miles. Before I left, I was concerned about the temp, and Husband offered to let me use his cycling tights. Husband, himself, has lost 50 pounds this past year. In the history of our marriage never, ever, was I able to "swap" any type of clothing with him. Not socks, pants - nothing. Maybe a hat. In any case, the tights were comfortable. Not exactly tight-like, but very comfortable. I loved wearing these things. So maybe if he stays at his current weight and I stay at mine we can save money on winter workout clothing.

I'm very nervous about tomorrow's procedure. It's made me kind of bitchy all week. I'm not sure why. At first, I thought it might have been because of the child thing. Ater tomorrow I can never, ever again have a child. Of course, I already have three of them, the youngest being 15 and oldest being 22, and let's face it--even being home with 4 needy cats is taxing these days, but, I don't think that's it. I'm not worried about dying, because the worst potential complication could be burns on my thighs. I think that mostly I'm worried about potential pain and being sick. Before the procedure, I had something called an endometrial biopsy which, if you have the choice, I suggest skipping. It was fairly unpleasant. Ever since then, I've been nervous about this procedure. Then there's the MVTC sprint this weekend, which I need to attend to keep up my point in the SWCS, but if the signs aren't right by Saturday, I can't compete in, because the swim could be dangerous.
I'm going to go try to work off some of my nervousness with a hill run and then some coffee, and then go down for a swim. Maybe later I'll do another bike ride.

For the rest of today, I'll be drinking miso soup and fruit juices, and then fasting after midnight, so here's my calorie consumption so far this week.


  1. GOOD LUCK!!!!! Take good care of yourself!

  2. I will be thinking of you and am hoping you will have a super-duper quick recovery! Then back to the workouts as normal as possible next week, hopefully, right? They will speed recovery time if you are allowed to work out!

  3. i know what you mean about being able to switch with your hubby's wardrobe. mine has lost 70 pounds this year. 70 POUNDS. have i lost one? um.. no. do i keep training? yes. is it the cadbury easter eggs that i eat all day? possibly.

  4. Goodluck girl. Everything will be fine. As for the miso soup, yummy. And dang, I think I'd fall over if all I ate was 1842 calories. You and Nancy are on the same plan.

  5. Good Luck Tomorrow! I'm sure everything will be fine!!!

  6. Well, I can't wish you luck, as it's too late for that. So, I'll pray for you now. God bless you.

I'm sitting here, looking out the window.  I did 3 miles this morning.  Big whoop.  After recovering from CDiff last month, I got a cold...
