So after trying to find "the best" workout to get a great body in time for our sailing trip, I decided that really it comes down to the simple process of eating well, and exercise...any exercise. And since last year I was training for a triathlon and it kicked my butt into shape, I decided that I would go back to that plan. I find that I do best when I have everything laid out for me; how much/when I should bike, swim, run, and do weight training. It makes it easy to wake up in the morning and just do what my training plan is telling me. Although, I have to actually get up and go to the gym; that's the hard part. But I always feel so good when I workout in the morning that it is motivating to do it again tomorrow. The other hard part is doing the plan...the one I picked is pretty ambitious so I have a lot of work to do to keep up with it. I can do it though, it just requires effort (which is really the point of exercise, right?)

Sick Day

Why is it that the best way to get better when you have a cold is to sleep...but because you have a cold and can't breathe, and ache all over... you can't sleep. Argg... At least it's better to be miserable at home, rather than at work, where I can have the kleenex box close and my coughing won't disturb anyone but the dog. (Who really prefers me at home with him in any condition, so he doesn't mind.)

Things to do today:

Happy New Year!

We spent New Years in Grand Lake at a cabin with some friends, Luke & Jamie. It was nice and relaxing. It snowed a ton while we were there and yesterday the interstate closed, but we were content to stay by the fire and watch the winter wonderland (it helped that Danny brought 5 cases of beer). But today it cleared up and made for a beautiful drive home.
