Just checking in. . .

Sorry for such an absence of posts. .. . although I am not sure many even follow this blog~ it's mostly for myself to answer to me :) I want to start with confessing. .. . .I have not ran, biked or swam the last almost 3 weeks, Please Forgive me? I have however been getting quite a full body work out riding my 2 year old Palomino ~ Pixydust. We were even featured in a story on the local news in Eastern Idaho :) I have been home in Idaho for about 17 days now and I have rode my horse 13-14 of those days. It is a tough workout believe me! Here is the link to my news story: I believe I can change the world by inspiring one person at a time to become an organ donor. My Donor has given me back more life than I had before, more ability to do the things I love, to be able to challenge myself and to look towards a future. Through me, she lives on!

Taken a Break.. .


I have been in Idaho for the last week visiting family. Don't worry though I am still getting plenty of exercise, just of a different kind. I have been riding my horse every day for about 2-3 hours and believe me every muscle in my body is sore! I use muscles I didn't even know I had let alone get sore :) I am hoping within a few more days of riding my body will be in good enough shape I will have the energy and stamina to add a little jogging at night on the treadmill. Now don't go and get too jealous :)

Ahhhh. .. the difference new shoes can make


Bryan felt bad for me cause my legs were hurting so much when I ran that he forced me to buy a new pair of running shoes. Mine were so old I couldn't remember if I got them 8 or 9 years. . either way it was way to long ago. I wore them tonight for the first time. They need broke in! Besides getting a little rub/blister on my right heal, they were a ton better! My legs still hurt a little but not more than what is expected. I am going to feel that until I have built up my endurance and strength in my legs & calves. I doubled my running time meaning I ran more and walked less. I completed at least a mile in less than 14 minutes. I lost track a little. Well, tomorrow I will bike with Bryan and run again on Friday. I hope I start to see some improvement soon. . . push through the pain!

Biking. . .

Hey, I am so excited. Bryan got his bike all fixed up and said he would start riding with me. He also said he would go to the gym with me too . . . we have yet to make it there together yet. But today we biked about 2 miles or so. It's hard with all the traffic. Tomorrow I will do some running/walking and lift some weights. I have noticed several improvements in myself since I began working out regularly. First is of course my physical shape. . I have muscle tone again! Second, is my blood sugar levels. I was starting to get really high blood sugar and was concerned I would be put on insulin shots daily (which I have never had to do). However, within the last month or so they have been dramatically lower. I am almost within normal range. They will probably always be a little high due to my medication. I am just excited to have that help me with staying motivated. . . no insulin shot~
