Weight I have lost

WTF is Jim Cantore?

So with the new year comes new goals. I'm going to floss my teeth more often (4 times a week).
There, that is my goal.

And once again, a rambling all over the place post.

In running news, I have run a 5K (on the TM) and 1 mile sprint (on the TM). The 5K was ok. I put a few hills in it. I ran it all. I was slow, but I know I can Run with the Dogs on Saturday. D and I decided that in order for my hip to stay healthy and my butt to hurt less (insert sarcasm), to do some strength training. So off to the gym yesterday at 730. We were in viewing distance when I reminded D that I would be happy when February came so all the gym newbs had left.

It wasn't that crowded and we each scored a treadmill. I started at 4.5 and increased every 2 minutes. I got my sprint run in 12:33. I need to remind myself this is good considering I could barely walk in September. Stop comparing pre-injury when you aren't at the level you were.
I could have sat on the abductor machine all night. It was a nice piriformis stretch.

In other news, we had a nice New Year's. This year we decided to forgo the Rib Eyes or the Veal Chops (damn you WeWa) and had Shrimp Stuffed Poblanos. Very tasty. And beer. Moohoo and Guinness. Saturday prior to the Winter Classic we had Avocado Buttermilk Soup. Both were hits. And the Caps won. We re-watched the game on Sunday. Can I just say how much better the Canadian Broadcast was over NBC's. They actually talked hockey and interviewed players and didn't slob all over Sidney Crosby's knob. Seriously, NBC...I don't know who Jim Cantore is (I had to google), and like every other weather man in America, he can't call the weather. So get him off the air. And there was more than SC out on the ice. (Can you tell what team I was rooting for?)

D asked to go to the last Thrashers/Caps game. I scored some good tickets on the "Caps Shoot Twice" side. So we will go to that.

I hope everyone had a good New Year's Day. Now let's all not get injured and stay healthy!

Yay for running injury free!

Good for you for making a healthy NYE dinner. I'm pretty sure my dinner did not follow suit - I'm always wary of cooking for other people and trying to be healthy - sometimes it doesn't turn out...
