Catching Up!

" I'm glad to be here right now, poking at my threshold. I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don't want to shrink back just because something isn't easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can't and I can. Maybe that spot is called I will." Kristin Armstrong, Cyclist

 Kristen and her son after winning Olympic gold medal in the time trial.

Getting more comfortable with being uncomfortable......This is right where I am now!  A few weeks ago I threw out a rib...the floating rib#12  and it is still very sore , but recovering.  I am just back on the bike and in a stage of active rest.  My trainer told me Thursday, "I am going to work on all  your weaknesses for the next 3-6 this will not be pleasant. You will have to ice and aleve."   So far, she is right!

Been in the gym doing everything lighter than light.  Moving, but not too much.  Am trying to heal this rib that then affected my lower back and hip.

Watched the Olympics.  Read an article that disabled my chicken eating.  Have not eaten any...cannot since reading that article...and cannot write about it either.  Looking at my menu and working other protein sources into meal planning.  Have lost 20 pounds since the May 12th time trial.  Working on some more.
