Day 15

For Breakfast: Half a grapefruit.

Today was the first day of school for Cassi. She is very excited about her classes is ready to go. For me, my first day riding a real bike since before my injury at the end of April. I rode my bike on the Burke Gilman trail, down to the U Village where I needed to pick up a couple of things for my computer. Then straight to the gym. I worked out for about an hour. The cardio portion of my workout was noticeably easier, which makes me feel awesome. I hopped back on my bike and rode home. My knee is feeling stronger everyday. I can't even express how good it feels to be able to do normal things and not notice anything off about my knee.

For Lunch: A salad of romaine, red bell pepper, garbanzo beans, red onion, cucumber, purple cabbage and lemon and olive oil, with blackened, seared Ahi tuna.

I went to work, it was painfully slow, but that was okay with me, because I am tired and I got out early.

For Dinner: My appetite has not been super huge, A had a cup Cannellini bean soup from our work. It is vegan, and very filling, I also had an olive, yes just one, Have to write it down, don't want to be a cheater.

Now I am home, and getting ready for school tomorrow, also tomorrow morning the cable guy is coming and we will finally have our own internet. We have been "borrowing" wireless from one of our neighbors, unbeknownst to them. I am excited! For the past five months I have been sitting in the very small corner of our living room to check my mail and blog, as this is the only place we get a signal. So tomorrow, we will have freedom to surf the net wherever we want.
Fifteen days down, a lot more to go. The belt I use with my work uniform has officially been tightened two holes! Goodnight wonderful people, thanks for all your support!


  1. Yay for bike riding!! Have I told you I'm taking a spin class right now? It's awesome - you would LOVE it. Check it out at the IMA...maybe next quarter?

    Your salads always sound phenomonal, by the way.

    Two holes, whaaa?!?


  2. A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her girlfriends when a tall, exceptionally handsome, extremely sexy, middle-aged man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take her eyes off him.

    The young-at-heart man noticed her overly attentive stare and walked directly toward her (as all men will). Before she could offer her apologies for staring so rudely, he leaned over and whispered to her, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $20.00
    on one condition".

    Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was. The man replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."

    The woman considered his proposition for a moment, and then slowly removed a $20 bill from her purse, which she pressed into the man's hand along with her address. She looked deeply into his eyes, and slowly and meaningfully said. . . .

    "Clean my house."
    Oh yeah. (:
