Time out for Tuesday

Bleah, I'm so wiped out from teaching my classes on Monday. I honestly dread going to teach them but once I get going, I really have fun and enjoy it. I need to remind myself that beforehand. As I've said, teaching these three classes is exhausting.

Jean, I have to laugh about the hypochondria because I'm the same way.

The sad thing is I wake up in the middle of the night, if someone around me has been sick, and think if I have any of the symptoms.

Hi guys!

Kel, I am right there with you on the weight front. I don't know what it is. I have been working my butt off this month, at the gym 5 days a week. Intense cardio, regular resistance training, eating well, etc. I didn't lose a single pound this month! So frustrating!

I really want to be a regular here but I rarely have time to sit down in front of the computer. I do today because my middle child is home sick from school with a 103-degree fever. I had a message from her school that a nasty stomach virus is going around. Sure hope she doesn't have it.

Jean, of course you're exhausted from your classes! Are you still an insomniac too? That combination could make anyone feel exhausted.

B - coffee (no appetite)
S - I really should eat something, but I just don't feel like it. I had planned on making a green drink, but the thought of messing up and having to wash dishes...
L - salad with steak strips, cilantro dressing
S - sushi
D - I have chicken in the fridge. Maybe a chicken stir-fry.

Been doing better on the water front. Drinking lots of water lately.

Since my kid is sick, I couldn't make it to the gym but I dusted off an old cassette from my extreme step days. O - M - G! I was ready to quit after the first 15 minutes. How did I ever do that? I remember most of the cues but I got stuck on a few. Can't remember what a crazy jack is! Man, I loved that class. I didn't finish the tape, but it was a good start.

Hey, I was wondering how you were doing but didn't want to be stalkerish and ask on your wall.

I've also done that w/ injuries. "Is my ankle still hurting? I think it's better...no, it still hurts."

I know it mind sound silly to some people, but I have really been down and in a funk since my dog died. I haven't been on fb at all and I was finding myself feeling somewhat depressed. Since I've been in that scary place of depression before, I started making an effort to get out and be social, even though I don't feel like it. We miss our dog terribly but we're managing. The other day, my dh dropped a sandwich on the floor and called the dog to come and get it. I know our hearts will heal with time and it won't always be this painful. Thanks for thinking about me.

I live near a National Whitewater Center where many Olympic hopefuls come to train and qualify for the Olympics. Sometimes I wonder if former gymrat, doubleblade, comes here. Michael Phelps competes there sometimes too. They have zip lines, whitewater rafting, swimming, hiking, etc. Anyway, I was watching the news and they had a Spartan competition last weekend. It's an obstacle course with at least 10 stations. I want to do it next year. Do any of you remember how much I love the movie, "An Officer and a Gentleman," and how I dream of climbing that wall in their obstacle course? They have the wall! They also have a mud pit with ropes to climb. I hear that was the toughest challenge because they had to hoist themselves out of the mud that was sucking them back down and then climb up a rope and ring a bell. It was very Survivor-ish crossed with military basic training. There were people yelling at them not to quit and calling them Spartans. The whole thing is only 4 miles but it looks killer. Jean, I could imagine you doing something like that. I want to do it, but don't know if I'll be ready for it by next spring. It would be a great goal though!

It doesn't seem silly at all.

I've always wanted to do something like this but can't find someone to do it with. And,it seems like something you'd want to do w/ others, for the fun of it. Getting muddy by yourself just isn't the same. Boy, some of those things would torque the shoulder!
