Meh

I know this sporadic posting thing isn’t really doing it for me or anyone else.  Sorry, y’all.  Life keeps getting in the way, but at the same time it doesn’t necessarily seem blog-worthy.  My meals lately have been poorly planned and either far too low or too high in calories…probably the reason why I’ve gained about two pounds in the past month or so.  Meh.  Here’s what’s new, though:

  • Stephen and I have joined a kickball league with a bunch of friends, but at our first practice I ran waaaay too hard on cold muscles and felt like my quads got ripped in half.  Ouchies.  I had to sit out the first game, and have been rocking the heating pad under my desk at work this week, but I’m looking forward to playing at our 2nd one.  Even though I’m scared shitless.  Oh and with the weather getting nicer, I’ve got the urge to start running again, but this pulled muscle thing is really putting a damper on those plans.
  • I’ve started going to yoga again.  I’m aiming for once a week to start with, and hopefully Mom will start joining me, too.  Currently my arms, pecs, and lats are screaming at me from the 80 planks we did the other night.  Yay!
  • I’m finally getting tested for gluten intolerance.  My doctor/boss has a passion for diagnosing it and has tried to get me to get tested for over a year.  Lately all my symptoms are really starting to bug me, so I’ll finally know once and for all if I need to give it up.
    And because I used to do these silly things on MySpace all the time and keep seeing people do them on blogs (yes, I still read even though I’m not diligent enough to comment or write myself!), I’m giving it a go here.
