VARIOUS CRUNCHES

NO LIMITS Crunches: (Abdominal, that is....) This is new. I haven't been a "cruncher." And I have lousy core strength. So yesterday I did 10. (Forgot to include that in yesterday's blog.) Today, 30: 10 straight, 10 left, 10 right. Oh, and 20 pushups, too.

TIME Crunches: I'm working on getting all my blog friends "fed" into Bloglines. I'm combining my Across the Nation and Run to Florida blogs into this one. I've got my G-Maps route figured out again, at least temporarily... it will accomodate a longer route if I map it in a smaller zoom that doesn't include every twist and turn in the road at small scale. How long it will let me keep that up remains to be seen. Anyway, it's back in my sidebar.

It's a really fun idea to look up all the places I "travel through" and tell about them and post pictures but.... it takes SO MUCH time. Even with satellite internet, my old decrepit laptop is slow to load and I can spend an hour on one post if I include locale research too. So after a couple more days I'm going to take them down and just map the mileage "as if" with the link in my sidebar, keeping an eyeball on the atlas with occasional posts here in my main blog about interesting stuff.

WIND crunch: When I opened the door this morning the wind yanked it out of my hand, banged it against the front wall, and practically knocked the trailer over. Santa Ana's are blowing hard in Southern Cal, and the cirular animation on the Weather Channel shows that's what we're getting, here, too. And I biked in it yesterday! PTL!!!

It's actually supposed to RAIN tomorrow. I was thinking, I'd better go run today. But then I thought, it's so long since I've seen, heard, felt, and smelled rain, I might just thoroughly enjoy running in it.

NESTLE'S crunches: Not. I'm planning today's food. I may even put what I intend to eat all together in one place in the fridge. Like one of those mail-order diet systems. All laid out. Again, Commodore's post today helped with my conviction/conversion.

Is that your dog??? What a cutie!!! What a great running partner. Good job on the crunches and push-ups. Crunches is what I'm all about for the next 39 days too...

OMG, you have the cutest dog ev-ah!!!

Do you do your crunches to music? I've found that it helps. Cruel of you to post pictures of chocolate, though. And all this time you seemed like such a nice person!

Nestle's CRUNCHES. WOW. Completely new meaning to the idea of A Daily Crunches Quota.

"DANGER, Will Robinson, DANGER!"

lol I think I'd enjoy the chocolate crunches more, but I like the way physical crunches can reshape me.
