I know it has been a while but trust me, it has been a great ride since the last time we spoke.  ;)

Life is good.  Back at the gym full time in addition to cycling, tennis and skating.  Life has gotten in the way of some of the skating practices but my intentions are always there.  But with my never ending back and groin injuries, the excitement to skate just isn't there.  I wish it were because I do miss the speed, the sound and the people. 

On a new supplement program which I am hoping will help get me balanced.  Vitamins, and oils are now part of my daily routine.  So far no massive change but I am sure I am benefiting from it all even if the effects aren't tangible.  I am looking forward to see how it supplements my workouts. 

On the fitness side of things, I did gain about 4 pounds back from when I had the flu.  I was so happy to drop the sick weight but was sad when I saw it coming back once I got healthy.  You just can't keep it off when your body is ready to eat again.  Damnit.  ;)  Either way, I am still on schedule.  I would say that if I keep focusing on this, I should be able to reach my goal by the end of July.  Yay.  Positive influences are all over the place so it is easy for me to stay motivated.  However, chips, chocolate and yummy stuff are also all over the place so that is always a challenge.  As long as I can stay away from breads and bad carbs, I should be just fine. 

Pics to come.

Set Backs Suck

I was doing so well...until I got back from Mexico.  Grrr

I was so good during my vacation and hit the gym almost everyday.  Was getting back into the swing of things and it felt so good.  Then I came home.  Day one of being back to Ottawa and Montezuma came to my front door.  Yup, a lovely Mexico reminder that stayed with me for about 5 days.  THEN, to top it all off, it transformed into the flu which has taken over my body for the past 5 days.  OMG.  I have only hit the gym once in the past 5 days and I feel like a lazy ass.

The ONLY good thing about the "touch of mexico" and the Flu afterwards is that I am down at least 5 pounds.  At least.  On top of my recent success, this is kind of an ironic cherry on top.  Silver lining of sorts. However on the down side, the gains I have made are also gone.  Looks like I have to begin again once I get back to the gym.  And that won't be for another few days.  Still too weak to considering heading to the gym.

Oh well, such is life.  I really can't complain as I've never been happier.
