They're Always After Me Lucky Charms

First things first. I turned the blog green for the weekend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. So happy St. Patrick's Day!

I guess it was heartburn yesterday because I'm still here. And heartburn-free at the moment.

I have really felt lately like I wanted to get into exercising again. About a year ago I quit running because of knee pain. I've been walking a lot lately, but it just isn't the same as running. I wanted something that would give that feeling like I had accomplished something again. It would also be good to have something I can do when the weather doesn't want to cooperate. We have a small workout facility at work, but it seems like kind of a hassle to go there. If you work out in the middle or beginning of the day you have to bring clothes to change into and take a shower (or smell most of the day). If you workout at the end of the day the traffic just gets worse and worse the longer you are there.

I thought that a Nordictrack might work well with my knee, but I found out that new Nordictracks are very expensive! So, I looked around on ebay and found a decent one for a much lower price. So I spent some more of my tax refund and bought one. I finally put it together on Thursday and have used it the last 2 days. It's kind of tough to get back into the habit of working out, but I really want to do it. It's good to "feel the burn" again. I'm hoping this thing will work out and I can make exercising a regular part of my life again.

If you see any of these people, wish them a happy birthday!

Happy St.Pat's. I am named after the man himself. (Well Dad expected me to be a boy, so I got the next best thing) It's a music birthday day! Woo hoo-go Ivins. I saw him when he had a fro a long time ago. Yay for you and the nordic. I was going to suggest rower. Are you a March Aries or an April?

Happy St Patrick's Day. I remember having green Miller's in Philly three years ago (which didn't taste so nice but it looked good!). Time flies!

pg - I thought about a rower too, I may get one at some point to change things up. I'm going to keep the birthday info to myself. Must keep it a secret.

l - I can't believe you actually drank Miller! I'm sure you're used to the good stuff back home.

h - Thanks! Hope you had a good weekend!
