Drank my first green smoothie today. It wasn’t terrible. 
Ran in over 30 degree heat (that’s super hot American friends). It was terrible. 
Ate a delicious salad and fruit for supper. It was refreshing.

Welcome back foam roller

I dug my foam roller and tiger tail massager out of the closet today. Like, literally dug it out from under clothes, sheets, and blankets. They were buried at the very bottom.

Truths. 
I stopped running. 
I stopped caring about what I was eating. 
I gained weight. 
I joined a learn to run clinic 2 weeks ago. 
I joined WW Online. 
I joined a Dietbet. 
I will lose weight. 

The happy faces above include myself, my BF, lady from LTR clinic, and clinic instructor/bestie eating bagels and cream cheese after Sunday mornings run.

First world problems

- it was really cold outside when I got up to go to the pool this morning and I didn’t want to get out of bed
- I dropped my phone in the snow
- the pool was really busy
- Em slept in and didn’t swim
- I forgot deodorant
- swimming makes me really hungry

Mother Nature had a wonderful surprise to welcome me back to 6am swimming…snow! And slush! And unplowed roads! Yay! 

I made it to the pool in one piece. The drive through the snow was the easy part. It had been months since I swam. I felt it. 

40 laps alone + 10 laps with Em = 50 laps, 1250 meters.

Don’t make Jillian get in there!

On tonight’s Biggest Loser, Rachael got back in the pool. It’s 9:30pm. I’m going to bed. Tomorrow morning I start back at the pool. I’ll PVR Biggest Loser and watch the rest tomorrow night.

Howdy folks! 

Long story short…Buddy was not the dog for me. He’s gone to a better place (literally, not a better place in the sky…a lab rehab/rescue that will be his forever home). 

Therefore, I do not have a dog to walk anymore and must find another mode of exercise. 

Since I can’t run and walking alone just doesn’t happen, I’m going to start swimming again. At least twice a week. 

Ready. Set. Swim.
