A short post....yeah right

I would probably post more often to this blog if I could keep my posts a little shorter, but I nearly always seem to have a ton of things to say.

So, I'll get right to it. My Body for Life Challenge was derailed about five weeks ago when I started feeling tired all the time and nauseous most of the time. My digestion was all messed up (I won't go into details on that). About two weeks ago, I started to feel better and got in a few workouts. I had one day when I went back to feeling lousy. Of course, it was our wedding anniversary, and we went out to dinner. I spent most of it trying to eat some token amount of food, the very sight of which made me feel ill. Thankfully, I started feeling normal again the next day.

So, where does that leave me? I have no idea. I've been working out, just not on any schedule. My diet is chaotic right now. My weight is down, but I don't feel like my lean weight is staying positive. Plus, I have a ton of commitments this summer, including a band, a play, a short story book to edit, a novel to write, and maybe even some leisure time. Some sleep might be nice too...

Cheryl is still nearly running circles around me on the bike. She jumped in our newly-opened pool yesterday and swam a mile. I did half a mile the day before and I could barely move my neck yesterday.

I definitely haven't met all my goals so far this year. I guess I'll just keep going, moving forward when and where I can, and try to be patient. Or maybe I should look into those prosthetic washboard abs...

Um....., no.
