Riding at some point on Saturday

Crossing the finish line in Austin.

I am not overly thrilled about the way I look right now, though I do sort of like these pictures. I feel ridiculously out-of-shape, but I think it's nice to have some sort of documentation of what I've done with what I have.

Now that the MS150 is over, I'm contemplating my next move, in terms of exercise, fitness and general health. I have an idea to maybe pick up more swimming, but maybe running too. I'm not sure, but I do know that I need to do something. Part of that stems from how I currently feel (pretty good), and how I think I'd feel if I continued down a "workout a lot" path. I'm trying to be a lot better about my eating habits, and I think, over the last month or two, I have improved them considerably. I make a point to eat breakfast every day (which has NEVER been a consistent part of my diet), and I'm taking Omega 3, digestive enzymes and probotics. I'm also doing a lot of the visualization techniques from a "change your lifestyle" sort of book that I bought in February. It seems to be working, but who knows?

Woo hoo!!!
wow, your hair is so long! and i love seeing pictures of you :) :) :)

I do have to giggle (as someone mostly chairbound), at the idea of someone who has just done the MS150 as "ridiculously out of shape" *g* (yes, i know you mean compared to the shape you'd like to be in!)

You cannot be seriously out of shape after what you just finished :) I think you look smashing and was suprised at how long your braids are as well.

ooh, what book is that?

The Gabriel Method. I picked it up on the recommendation of a friend. I'm not sure if the book is working or just my outlook on life is more positive, but I feel a lot better since starting this, and I think I've lost a bit of weight.

Interesting, thanks for the tip. I started reading it this weekend... the philosophy reminds me a lot of Geneen Roth's books (presented in a more dynamic, new agey way). I haven't tried the visualizations yet but I like the bedtime relaxation/hypnosis cd.
