Back At It

Before Christmas I was doing the Couch to 5K program. I was pretty pleased with how it was going even though I had to modify it quite a bit to keep my ankle from blowing up five times its normal size. (It hasn't been the same since I walked off a porch and tore it all to hell back in March. The doctors don't seem interested in doing anything outside of telling me to be patient though. I think it's probably about as good as it's going to get now. That's another story for another day...) I felt I was making good progress.

Of course then I got sick. The kind of sick where you consider just moving into the bathroom, are fairly convinced that you are dying, and you aren't entirely sure you'd mind. It lasted well over a week, and left me completely drained. It wasn't a great way to find myself right before Christmas. 

Then the holidays came and went. I got through them without gaining anything, but I wasn't losing anything either, so it was time to get back to it. 

Getting back to it kinda sucks, but I didn't do too badly if I do say so myself. I looked pretty rough, but I felt good! That's worth something.

Adam Levine is my work out buddy, because it's impossible to go slow listening to Maroon 5. It's also impossible not to blush listening to some of those lyrics, but I'm getting better at that too.

Way to go Holly! I, unfortunately, did gain during the holidays, still working to get back to what I was before. Having candy at my work table was no help this past month!
