I apologize for being behind on this blog post series, but I accidentally broke my netbook (!) and it is hard to blog otherwise. Typing on my smartphone is a pain, especially when I try to juggle a book under my elbows.
I promise to try and catch up, though I might switch ahead to the time period I am in.
Look for more posts, more focused on food and my exercise plans, and maybe a little wedding talk!
Tags: Racing With Babes, recap, Tonia
I love Tonia from Racing with Babes‘ recaps each month. So I borrowed her idea.
Stats from January 2013:
Miles ran: 20.56 (taking a 4-week break to help my shin splints)
Miles biked: 32.5
Yards swam: 6425 (3.65 miles)
Miles on the elliptical: 8.18
Calories burned: 10,414
Number of workouts: 22
Current book: Finished “The Hunger Games” by Christmas; Now listening to “The Dante Club” by Matthew Pearl on CD in the car. Many, many wedding books.
Current healthy snacks: Planter’s NUT-rition Energy Mix (which seems vegan!) and Primal vegan jerky
Current song: “Everylong” by Foo Fighters
Current splurge: I did go to Roburrito’s once this month. Was it worth it? Always. But I think I need to give myself other splurges, as this was TOO calorie dense for my liking.
Current triumph: Finishing an intense swimming workout at a clinic
Current goal: To get back to running; to finish my indoor tri on Feb. 23

Complete an indoor triathlon — signed up for the Tri To Help in MD on Feb. 23
