Change Of Plans

I know I said that I would begin a new round of BFL this week. Well... Uh.... It never happened. There's just too much going on right now. I've been eating clean, BUT life has been a little hectic, between painting the interiors of the house and getting ready for Erik's high school graduation. It feels as if I've had a killer upper body workout, though, with all the prep work and painting, but I know it's not quite the same thing. I've been taking short breaks between spackling, painting, rehanging art work, and moving furniture, just to check e-mail. I did get an invite from Jen to join muscletank.net. (Thanks Jen!) It figures that I would get some sort of glitch that is preventing me from fixing my stats, or even logging in. (My stats are off and it says I'm doing a Men's Health Abs Workout...) I've checked my internet settings so I don't know what the problem is. I hope it's resolved soon. Since I didn't even have the mind set to do weights this week I am going to attempt a 30 minute run in the neighborhood. The funny thing is that my extra weight from the carb load is slowly dropping off on it's own. I'm only 3 pound up from where I was at the start of my carb load, Wednesday pre-marathon, and 6 pounds off my goal weight. Graduation is this Friday, parties on Friday and Saturday (we know a lot of graduates) and the festivities end on Sunday with Father's Day. June 20th is my new target BFL start day now... Really...

Hi Irene
I had some similar glitches when I first used muscle tank. It looks like the mighty webmaster has fixed your issues so you should be able to go in and edit away.
Looking forward to seeing your profile.

I noticed someone else had the same problem yesterday as well... It sounds like I need to save any entries right away... Now I have to take before pictures...

Hey there...sorry I've been behind in commenting! First off, great race report! Sounds like you really enjoyed the whole experience of a marathon :-) Glad to hear that recovery process has been going smoothly.

Enjoy the festivities of the upcoming weekend, too!

Sarah,
Recovery... It's going okay but a little slow. My knees are a little stiff but that's it. I think following the advice of all books and people that have gone before me has helped in a big way. Next time I'm going to schedule a massage for the day after :)

I think we're ready for the week-end... It's time to celebrate!

Stay cool!
