It's been a little while!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I haven't actually been logged on to SP in awhile... I downloaded the SP app for my iPod, which is fantastic, but since I do all of my tracking on there, I haven't logged in for awhile! I feel bad that I haven't been helping my Daisies much with the challenges... but I have made sure to record my weigh-ins.

This week has been an interesting week... Sunday my hubby was cleaning the garage. He went to hang my bike up, and it slipped, fell, and completely bent up the front of the bike. :( I was really disappointed because I will start riding to school when the mornings start to get a little warmer! And right now, we don't have money for a new bike! Then on Monday, he was driving our truck to the grocery store, and a guy in a tractor rear-ended us! Bad thing was, the tractor was for personal use and he doesn't have insurance for it. Our insurance told us that we would just have to pay repairs out of pocket until we met our deductable... ugh! But then the guy called us and told us to go get an estimate and he would pay for it to be fixed! He ended up writing us a check for the full amount of repair, plus $200 extra for what he called our pain and suffering. Good thing, because that paid for a new bike, which I now need since our only vehicle is in the shop til tomorrow!

It's spring break, so I've been picking up extra hours at the zoo gift show, so I rode there (about 2 miles) for work yesterday, and I will again today. I didn't realize how badly I needed a new bike until I got this one - the one I had been riding was the same one I got for Christmas my freshman year of high school... Only about 14 years ago!!!

I also started back up on C25K this morning. I took a couple weeks off because my knee had really been bothering me. However, with a knee brace today, I feel NO knee pain!! I went back to week 1 for today, and will probably go to week 2 when I do it next time.

I hope all is well with my spark friends, and I will try to log on more often!

    Glad to see you back. Sorry about the bike and vehicle, but so glad the gentleman agreed to pay for the expenses. It was super he gave the extra so that you could get the bike too! Hope you have a great week.
