Tried to go run at the gym today. Got sixty seconds in and my knee pain came back in the worst way. I felt defeated and pissed but went to the all motion trainer instead. Got thirty minutes on that plus a little upper body free weight action. I left feeling ok, but I'm still upset about the knee. My mom has had both knees replaced already and she's only 50, so I just have that in my mind.

Sigh.

Doing well on this week's mini challenge. Still no ice cream, froyo, or gelato, despite plenty of whining and complaining.

Also approaching the year anniversary of the loss of a dear friend, so a bunch of people are going to get tattoos together that day. I would love to hit 100 and be able to go with.

Only part of my goal 4 that's left is the garage! Yay!

Wait now... what's a musical headstand? Even Google couldn't help me.

And way to push through... my knees hate running.

I created them because headstands are boring and I fixate on the clock. If I'm singing then I forget the time and finish the song! Tada!

Goal update:

1. Handstand w wall 90 seconds. I'm not sure I'm going to get it this time around, mostly because I am SO enjoying my headstands! I'll walk up a couple more walls to see how long I can get, but 15 or so seconds was about it last time.

2. Kitchen is still a clean eating domain.

3. Weight loss goal of losing 8#. I'm still chugging along here. Slowly and surely.

4. Organizational overhaul. 3 of the 4 locations remain clutter free and organized. All that remains is the garage!

More goal updating, since there is only one week left:

1. Handstand is out of the running, but my headstand is great.

2. Kitchen is still awesome!

3. I gained a little after my race, most likely from being injured and not working out, but brought it down a tid bit. We will see...

4. Tackling the garage this weekend!!! Must. Do. It.!

Not so shabby, Hammi! Get after that garage!

And you can relate to this: knees are dumb. I tried to run a couple days ago and it still got unhappy around mile 1.5. Urgh.

It sucks! I hate how slow I have to go right now. If I start going my old pace I feel the pain coming on. Boo hiss.

I’m THRILLED about my organization, in the kitchen as well as all of the other areas I was focusing on. While I didn’t get my handstand where I wanted, I’m super excited about my headstand progress. All headstands were documented with a song. You’re welcome.

Those weight goals are really difficult the closer you get to goal. I've been bouncing around my last 5lb for what feels like AGES. 96lbs is still incredible, and I'm in awe of your 100% paleo kitchen! Here's looking forward to the next challenge :).
