I had to beat her into submission.

Yesterday was a rainy, dreary day in Hawaii. My original plan was to go for a long bike ride,veg on the couch and watch some movies, do some cooking for the coming week, and do laundry (god, I HATE laundry). I got the bike trainer out cuz of the rain and was going to watch Madagascar while I rode (I was shooting for a 2 hour ride). About an hour into the ride I started having a major sugar reaction. Apparently something I ate Saturday night had too much sugar and my workout brought on a pretty severe reaction. I had to stop riding, get something to eat, and lay on the couch for like 1/2 an hour till it passed. After it was over I felt like do-do. I got cleaned up, had some breakfast, and layed back down because I still felt like do-do. I ended up staying there for a couple of hours watching my movies and trying to feel normal again. Around 3:00 p.m., feeling much better, I got up and on with the rest of my day.

I signed on for Commodore's No Limits Training till the end of February but I think I have to start it today. Yesterday was a write off due to my hypoglycemia. I'm going to focus on core strengthening and stretching as these are my weakest areas. I am also planning my down time, because everyone needs down time, and so it doesn't get out of hand.

This morning was swimming. The alarm went off and I generally let my hubby get up first so we don't get in each others way. Well, he was taking a long time getting up (3 snoozes). When he finally got up I rolled over and said I'd get up as soon as he was in the shower. Then my inner whiner piped up, "it's late, just stay in bed, you can swim tomorrow, you could do something easy today, it's nice and warm here and the dogs are all snuggling with you....." Wow, did I get out of bed like I'd been fired from a cannon. I proceeded to beat her into submission, stuff a sock in her mouth and throw her into a corner. I got moving and was at the pool by 6:15a.m. Did 900 m and am really getting better at moving continously. So overall, an incredibly successful morning......

Woo hoo! You kicked the Inner Whiner's BUTT! Way to go!!

It does take a while to bounce back from those hypoglycemic crashes. No fun.

I thought Madagascar was very cute! Saw it last weekend.

Gee...dreary days in Hawaii.

Some of our fantasies have just rolled over and died.

But seriously, thanks for dropping by to say, "Hi!"

And way to go getting up out of warm doggie-snuggled slumbers and going to swim!

"stuffed a sock in her mouth..." I like that imagery-my admiration for being able to get up and swim so early.

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
