Good Afternoon Team!

Rick- hope you found those jumper cables to jump start this week!

AFM - my life seems to revolve around exercises, icing, and elevation, we did get out to a MS bike team party,and hoping we will be trained enough to ride with our team on the ride in August. I got on the bicycle at PT this morning, even made it all the way around with one leg, did not do as well this afternoon on our bike, pulled a muscle trying to get off,now I am back to icing and elevation.

Pixie Dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

I need a 'jumpstart'! Anybody got jumper cables?
When you find those jumper cables, can you send them my way next?

On the bright side, my new shoes came today! I took them for a trial spin on the treadmill-o-doom and they're nice so far. I was surprised at how cushy they are.

Good Morning Team!

Kipp - congrats on the new shoes.

AFM - nothing new, just PT, exercises, icing, elevation, pain killers, and walks around the house. It is getting boring, and we both want this to go faster!

Pixie Dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!

245 lbs - same as last 3 weeks!

Exercise
Completing a weekly workout challenge = 0
1 hours of exercise = 1 point

Healthy eating
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day = 3 points
Trying a new healthy food or recipe for the week = 1 (Bananna Chocolate cake... it didn't turn out )
Taking a multivitamin daily = 7 points
Eating five servings of fruits and veggies daily = 0 points
Eating two servings of dairy a daily = 3 points

I managed to "snipe" a deal on a Garmin Forerunner 610 (watch & charger only) on E-bay Monday and it arrived today! I of course charged it up and took it for a spin.. on the treadmill-o-doom. *sigh* We're supposed to get 6-12 inches of SNOW Sunday-Monday ARRRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!

It's supposed to get to 48-50 degrees F tomorrow, so I may bundle up a little and just go out and get some fresh air in a short run outside in the afternoon.

I've been in the new New Balance shoes a couple of times now and I'm still surprised at how cushy they are. I can't wait to see how they feel once I hit t he concrete/pavement with them.

Two guys at work are looking at starting to do the Insanity workout. They want me to do it with them, but I've already told them that I wouldn't be doing it every day due to my training for the Flying Pig. So I may try a modified schedule and try to use it as a cross training tool. The core & balance workout disc really got my interest in looking over the materials.

Good Morning Team!

Kipp - Hope you can get outside to test out your new Garmin.

AFM - Still just doing PT exercises, icing, elevating, and then doing it all again. I guess I am not doing too badly, but it is sure slow. I can only get all the way around on the bicycle about half the time, the rest of the time I just have to rock back and forth own foot at a time. I am pretty much off the pin killers, taking them only before bed and first thing in the morning.

Pixie Dust to all who are in need.

Have a great day Team!

Good Morning Team!

Same old - same old here. I did get outside to walk up and down the driveway to practice my walking (I am learning how to walk again), it should be nicer today outside and will do that again.

Good Morning Team!

We had a follow up appointment with the Doc in Fort Collins for Scott's knee, all is looking good, he was released to ride bike outside, so he has enjoyed taking a bike to the mailbox for mail and newspaper. Weather has been really nice for last 2 days, I have been enjoying outside walks, and I am up to a 30:25 mm!!!! (for almost a mile distance).

Pixie Dust to all who are in need!

Have a great day team!
