5 /150
I've entered a partnership with thunderslug in which we share a goal of 150 workouts in 2008. Today was 5. Yesterday, my normal workout day with my dad, Allie had an emergent dentist visit which, fortunately, turned out to be something like a "bruised ligament" around a tooth. Coulda been a lot worse! She has been fortunate to be able to handle the discomfort with Advil, mostly. So, didn't go with dad and didn't want to make a habit out of skipping whenever he and I can't meet for some reason, so I went this morning after work. Some might call that suboptimal, but I managed to have a good workout anyway.

I tried out the elliptical machine for the first time this morning. That thing is of the devil. It worked me, though, and that's arguably the purpose of going.

The FitLinxx site is almost - finally - caught back up from the downtime caused by a loss of their link with the Y. They still owe me some iron from December and most of January's workouts. I've lifted a lot more than two measly elephants! I'm currently running about 12,800 pounds per workout, maybe a bit more. It feels good, but the progress is... meh. Still, I'm doing a good thing here.

Beddy bye 'cause I got two more.

Yes, Martha, this is a good thing!

Seriously, I am so proud of your commitment to getting healthier. I know I have put it off for way too long, but I'm fi'n to hop on board also! I will need all the "extra energy" I can muster for my new schedule! Unless I am sick, I will be with you next Saturday...

Dare I ask? How do you bruise a ligament around a tooth?

I didn't even know you had ligaments around your teeth! I bit down on a piece of chicken that had a sneaky hidden bone, and thought my jaw would explode! Then, nothing except a little aching for a few hours. By the time Bruce picked me up at work though, it was starting to get pretty uncomfortable. Within about an hour, it was totally distracting! I raided our medicine cabinet and took anything I thought would either relieve the pain OR make me sleep through it! Don't ask! The x-rays showed nothing, so she told me just to avoid eating on that side for a few days and take Ibuprofen as I needed it. Now, I am much better! Weird, to say the least!

How strange! I've never heard of that before. I am glad you are feeling a lot better.

(It's as odd as breaking a tooth eating a potato chip.)<--me, last summer!

The dentist said she had a similar experience a few months ago. Her exam and x-rays were negative, but she had pain and sensitivity for about a week after the incident.

Man, that was one MEAN potato chip!

December may suck, but we're going to get there....(my goal to Finish is 12/1, so that I don't have 25 December workouts over the break...but we'll get there, dammit)

Yeah, I haven't plotted it out, but I don't think it will be any problem given my current pace. Also, I am seriously considering a couple of extra days of cardio per week to get the weight off. That'll make 150 a cinch!

I have laughed and laughed at the mental image this comment brings. That is precisely what it feels like! A roomful of people engaged in synchronous, stationery, barging. Hahahahahaha!
