Sweat hard, and prosper

I walked this morning, tuned in to the rest of "Hail to the Thief" on my iPod.  Something I feel like gregorian chants or japanese flute music.  Sometimes I have to have poetic lyrics to a syncopated beat.  With distortion.  And volume.

I'm sore, but it's a good sore.  I think I pushed myself just enough in the gym yesterday.  My arms, upper body and glutes are humming, but nothing is screaming.  A little yoga in front of the TV last night stretched the muscles out nicely, and this morning's walk warmed them up and opened them up.  Aaaah.

This afternoon, my team and I went to lunch together, then went to see Star Trek.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  I'm sure many of you haven't seen it.  I really can't say much at all that wouldn't spoil SOMETHING for you.  So, I'll just say "Wow!"  No, really, "WOW!"  I enjoyed it very, very much.  I can't wait to see it again!  It's hard for me to know for sure...'cause, see, I'm a Trekkie...but I think it's a movie non-Trekkies would enjoy too.  Very action packed, great characters, and the story is clear and interesting.  I drove home wanting more.  What a nice afternoon.

Food log:

Breakfast: big bowl of "Waldorf salad" - apples, bananas and strawberries, a little yogurt, some granola, and some ground flax seeds.

Lunch: pizza out with the team, before we headed for the movie theater.

Dinner: salmon cakes, a big salad, and a glass of milk.

Snacks:  one Thin Mint cookie


  1. Sore is good. I know that feeling. Better sore than not I aways say. At least you know you have been using your body that way. :)

  2. Yes indeed. I really like the feeling, actually. It feels like progress, and it feels the way I expect my body will feel after I'm really fit. Not the aches, but the muscle awareness.
