Sleep... Finally

I have been absent a lot lately. I have been fighting with myself. I have been and told E that I was thinking about selling my spot in the half. I have been very worried with this hand. It has got me down.

E and I talked it out yesterday.He was actually upset with me even thinking that.Let alone saying it. I guess I needed to say it,since then even E has pushed us back into the gym. Yes I made it in the gym. After 5 weeks, I did 30 minutes on the proctor.I did 2.15 miles in that 30 minutes. It was the longest 30 I have done in a long time. I didn't have my i pod,gee I haven't even updated it or listen to any pod cast lately. I have just been absent.

I had a good nights sleep last night. First time in a long time.I even woke up like I was going to work time.I feel good today. FJ was up to so went went for a brisk walk this morning. 33 minutes and did 1.80 miles. We had breakfast this morning. A First time in a long time Fj and I got along.

So far the hand is not so painful.Weak but not painful. The pain starts in the early afternoon.We shall see how today goes.

Points yesterday 26.

I'm glad to hear from you. I've been absent too. Good to hear that your arm isn't hurting as much, hopefully it won't give you any problems.

DON'T SELL!!! If you sell, I might have to sell (I didn't know you could do that. Hmmmm.....).

Good to see you are back on the horse. Sometimes we all need a little kick in the butt.

Don't give up Rae! We all have had blips in the road this year and you were the one encouraging us. So now it's our turn! Try to keep training, even if it's lighter than it was. My motto is any workout is better than no workout!

There's a lot of time left, and carpal tunnel definitely eases up for most people. I believe there are good days in front of you!

When all is said and done, when January comes, what will have mattered was our efforts, our work, our attempts to meet our goal, despite road blocks along the way. But for me, and probably others, it will be the journey that will be the huge accomplishment!

Don't worry Rae, I'm only kidding about selling my number.

Rae, you can't sell!! I had a difficult month, sounds like your's was tougher, but I got back on my horse and I'm getting after it. Look around at what others are doing!! It's been amazing and many of us have been able to do it because of your encouragement. I've thought about throwing in the towel a couple of times, and then I read peoples' blogs and check the AATM forum and it gives me the kick in the butt that I need. Come on Rae...we need our fearless leader!!!

First, my dear friend, I am glad that you had such a nice day.

Happy that you talked out your concerns with E. Swell guy you've got there.

Please do not even consider selling your spot.

Running or walking you will cross that finish line. Yes you will.

We are all in this together.

Many Goals / One Voice

Pride on three. 1 2 3 PRIDE!!!

It's good to hear that you had a good day and a good night's sleep. I'm also glad to hear that you are not giving up. You have come this far, we all know that you can stick it out and finish up. I hope you hand continues to feel better. Have to tried exercising it with like a stress ball or those chinese exercise balls? That's what I hear helps to relieve hand pain. I'm on a computer all day too and I try and do that to keep my hands from getting too bad. Hope the days get better from here. Go Rae!
