When I used to compete in high school. My events were the 100m Butterfly and the 200m IM.
I've increased by swimming routine to 3200m last week. To say that I was pooped is a total understatement!
My sister just about died when I told her that I was getting a bike because she seems to be under the impression that I'm a bit clumsy. Well, I can't fault her because I've had my moments in history involving bicycles followed by a few months in casts! Ok, so I'm a little bit of a sketchy cyclist!
I've gone out the GreenBelt a few times and have riden around my side of North Denton. I generally try to head out at night when I'm not able to be seen nor laughed at by passersby! haha I'm still a bit awkward on it but I'm getting better. The only parts of my body that seem to suffer at the moment are my palms from all the pressure of leaning forward and my *ahem * "girlie parts". =)
PS if you just so happen to see me laying on the side of the road please be kind and help me!!! Once I'm in the safety of my home then and only then do you have permission to laugh your @#$ off! ok? =)

I decided to start my weekend off to a good start so my dear friend, Kendra, joined me for a 6 mile walk down Elm Bottom Circle. I made the grave mistake of not stretching properly after working out and it cost it.. big time!!! I was hobbling along all weekend.
In two weeks I'll head back to the doctor's office for an annual report of my medical progress. I wish I had kicked butt these last 2 months but instead I fell off the wagon...well, I was hanging on the wagon with my bare feet while my head got the mess beat out of it!!
I'll have updates and weight loss/gain progress after that appointment on the 2nd.

Me: Hi. I need to speak with Jeff, please.
Receptionist: Ummm. Ok? Welllll, he's like currently in a session right now.
Receptionist: Would you like to leave him a msg?
Me: Yes. Thank you.
Receptionist: Ok. Oh. Hold on. (She puts me on a hold a few seconds and I'm beginning to wonder why she sounds so confused.) Ok. Your name please?
Me: Marcy Infante with Media Source.
Receptionist: Oh, Ok. (she begins to scribble then I hear a pause...) Umm did you say Marcy from Bombay?
AhaHAHahaha!! I guess Bombay and Infante almost sound alike, don't they? Oh, what a great laugh to help kick off this morning.

I'm in the process of putting in my headphone in my right ear while also trying to drop a few almonds in my mouth. In the mix match of my brain pattern guess where each ended up?! =) You guessed it! I got a mouth full of headphone!
Thankfully, I didn't get an ear full of almonds. However, just so you know iPod headphone's don't taste like almonds nor are they chewy! I swear!!! Someone kick me already!

On other news. White Rock is hosting a half and full marathon this December. One of my "to do" items for 2008 was to finish a half! If anyone is interested in doing long and slow walks with me on Saturday mornings please let me know. When I say long I mean about 6 miles. I haven't even walked more than that, that I know of. And, because it's getting so warm out there I'd say we should get started about .....I dunno, like 3 am!!! =)
OH! And Congrats to the Rozell's!!! They're expecting another baby!!!!

I feel yucky! I need to get back on a strict program. Keep reminding me that this is a lifestyle not a diet! I'm headed to the pool today after work. BTW: Thanks for the awesome workout Robin! I love you, chica!

I love watching people riding.
undertow pulls at your body beckoning you further and further away from shore. It reminded me much of sin. Sin has a way of pulling at your heart strings. Sin also has a way of feeling momentarily good and it feels good to go with the flow. What I mean to say is that I noticed that the less I fought to stand my ground on a certain sand bar the easier it was to be pulled further out....much like sin. It wasn't until I got out to the 3rd or 4th sand bar that the waves started crashing down pretty hard. I'm so thankful that I'm incredibly comfortable in water. I could see how most people would begin to freakout in stormy waters. The waves that helped bring me back to shore reminded of God's grace & mercy. When I pushed against the current and fell into the waves that pushed me forward then I started moving back. I just had to fight in between each wave...
She became my snuggle buddy.

This is right before heading out for a late night walk.
Here's my post workout picture. Man it feel good once it's all over with. OH, and check out the cool heart rate monitor on my wrist! Thanks, ADAM B!!

Saturday's weigh in went well. I'm down another 1.6 lbs! I'm between 5-6lbs away from losing the weight that I gained. Dang, it's so much harder taking it off that it was putting it on!!!
Working out is still going well. It's been so hot lately so most of my cardio is done at the pool or late at night but I haven't been strength training. No good excuse - I'll do it.
Speaking of late nights. I didn't get around to hitting my cardio last night until 9:30pm (we were watching So You Think You Can Dance - love it!). I felt like walking to so I decided that I'd walk to my gym and back, which is about 2.9 miles or 6 miles around trip.
I made it all the way to the gym in under an hour and started heading back home. I guess it might've been just a little bit past 10pm and I get a phone call from my sister. "where are you?!?!" She's such a mom sometimes! As I'm talking to her on the phone I notice MY CAR driving slowly past me. It sorta freaked me out. Well, it was her... she came to get me because she was worried about me walking alone so late at night. Oh, and as she's slowly rollin' past me she whistles and says "Heeeey Big Foxy Momma. You need a ride!?!" ..... gotta love sisters, right? =)
I didn't get in the car. =) I wanted to put in another mile or so, so I asked her to wait for me at a destination that would've put me right around 4 miles. So, she went and waited. As I approached the parking lot where she was waiting for me I noticed that the crazy girl, I call my sister, was rocking out to some old 70's rock song. It was pretty funny! She looked up and saw me but never batted an eye but rather just continued doing her thing. She makes me laugh.
We're headed to visit the family in CC this weekend. It was a last minute decision so we're hoping to surprise everyone. I haven't been home for 4th of July in ages! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures! I miss the way Corpus Christians celebrate Independence. Thousands of people migrate to Ocean Drive (long drive that lines the gulf for miles and miles), where you'll find all sorts of cool vendors, radio stations dj's with lots of loud music, maybe a stage for live music and maybe a parade... I can't remember! I just know that it's typically good times. But there's nothing like watching fireworks over the gulf! I can't wait!
I haven't seen a frog on any of my walk for weeks and weeks. Good day!
I met a lady at the pool a few weeks ago. She's a personal trainer out in Aubrey who's also a cyclist! I'm thinking about buying her million dollar Trek Hybrid. She met up with me out at the GreenBelt and had me try it out. I seriously hadn't been on a bike in like 15 years so I was a bit nervous. I'll have to tell you that story later.
So, adding cycling to my exercise routine might be all kinds of danger and fun! She's trying to get an all level cycling group started. Any takers?
It's amazing that I'd even have the guts to try something new like jogging or cycling.It's been an exciting year to say the very least.
