weekend wrap up

At long last, things seem to be falling into place I have a semblance of normalcy. For the first time since my return from Vancouver, Ifeel like I have not been at the mercy of back pain. That being said, work has become exponentially busier and more physically demanding. Which means I made it to the gym exactly once this week. Bummer.

This week, we celebrated earth day (well, we observed earth day. I don't know about you, but I wasn't able to fit any celebrating into April 22. I'm going to have to do some good, old fashioned celebratory rolling in the grass at another time for earth day. Any day can be earth day, I guess!) Despite my lack of celebration, I'm still going strong in the year long attempt at cutting down on the trash, no plastic bags, no disposable plates at work. Yay everybody!

This week's book: Finished "The Audacity of Hope". Thought provoking.

This week's project: Digital picture organizing! I finally got all the pics off the camera and loaded onto the computer. Went through all the picture files and deleted pics that are useless and organized the remaining pictures into files that make more sense. Finally, got them all loaded onto an online photo sharing site and onto a flash drive for backup.

And as an added bonus: repotted the plants. I've been needing to do that for a while!

Tomorrow, I'm going to try riding the road bike!

I've been seeing lots of people out running and riding bikes and feeling sooo jealous! I just want to be in a place where I can resume training without putting myself back. I'm trying to embrace the idea of only sprint tri's for the season, but it's tough when I so wanted to do a half ironman this year.....First things first, though. Try the road bike tomorrow and do my spinal stabilization exercises tonite!

Have a good nite, everyone!

I'm always jealous, especially on the nice weather days, seeing other people out and about, on weekdays at least. I took a day off last summer and rode my bike along the beach trail, seeing the volleyball players out there with their perfect tans, and wondering "what the hell do you people do for a living?" LOL
