did someone get the number of that truck?

I lifted weights for the first time in several days and it feels like someone beat me all over with a baseball bat and left me to die in a ditch. I'm sleepy and sore. I'm sitting in Panera but I don't think all the coffee in the world will wake me up right now. I fell asleep last night around 11 with my contact lenses in, so my eyelids are feeling scratchy and sticky today.

I've gotten in some really high-quality workouts in the last few days so I feel totally justified in taking an easy day today and just going for a walk in the park instead of a hard-hitting workout. Yesterday I ran after the weight workout and that may also be part of why I'm so sore.

I am stuck waiting here for a while so I'm going around and reading all the Angry Fat Girlz blogs and it's really fun to see how well everyone is doing. I really think the power of this kind of support group, where people are semi-anonymous but know each other's stories, is amazing. I know it's carried me through my workouts on a lot of days when I felt like saying, "Screw it!" and going back to sleep.


  1. I started to post and it got so long that it turned into tomorrow's topic . . . you inspired me - off on another topic.

  2. Jen, I did adduction weight machines yesterday and this morning, ooooh. But I considered it a good ooooh (as opposed the bad oooh on my knee that I got yesterday). You did good, okay?

    Funny, I went to Panera's for lunch today.
