HYC from the Drama Magnet

I'm good. I think. Just stressed...who isn't these days though? I'm just a magnet for drama. Really, if there was a competition for it or an award I'd so win. But, I have my family and most of us are still in good health. It's all I can ask for!

I know y'all are die yard treadmill fans, but my joints, hip and back just ache afterwards. Kind of like walking longer distances. That's why I like eliptical machines - they're awesome! But, it's a moot point now as I don't think we will be able to afford it with recent events (yes, since I posted yesterday). But, good news? I think we may move closer to my school so that I can bike to it instead of the necessary drive. I guess I could bike now, but only if I want to risk life and limb crossing the highway/freeway...no thanks!

I gained over Thanksgiving. Too much grazing, not enough working out. It all passes by so fast, and then I was back here and "bad" tired again! So, while finishing up my classes and grading exams the next 8 days, I am going to make it my mission to be good tired. Spending time with my hubby, playing with the dog or friends. Just enjoying life. I still need to work, but I need to continue working on me as well. It's too easy to get caught in the sorrows that happen, but I'm just figuring out that if I let it get to me every time something happens I'm going to be a wreck in no time!
(btw, lovin' the good/bad tired - makes my HYC list so much shorter :)

No feeding the drama llama! It'll set up in your back yard and you'll never get rid of it.

Not a treadmill fan myself, so good luck with the biking.

Well that's exciting. Being able to rid your bike to school! That would be a great way to start your day!

Being able to bike to school would be awesome! That will be great exercise and good for the environment.

Biking to work would be nice. I hate treadmills myself and live on the elliptical or recumbent bike if I am using cardio machines. As always tomorrow is another opportunity to stay on plan and keep moving. Happy Losing!!!

This might be a reversal of good fortune. Using a bike to get back and forth from school may inspire other rides. Some of the best exercises are those that don't involve complicated gym machines. You may have found your niche and become a great bike racer.

Please to school me too. What does HYC mean?

MR - it's the healthy you challenge that scale junkie puts on. I have a button on the right down a ways. I'll have to move it back up :)

A hard workout helps me when stressed. Have a fantastic weekend!
