In a meantime, back to my machines. Saturday was filled with an hour of Stairmaster, hour of spin class, and then 30 minutes of Jane Fonda butt kicks, side kicks and so on. I was actually pretty tired and sore! So, not all is lost. This development also made me to focus on my eating plan much more seriously. Since I was running, and pretty high miles, I could easily justify an extra egg here, an apple there (nothing threatening, just a touch). Now, I had gone through the weekend with the family, and survived just fine on strict adherence. It's possible. It's getting better and easier. It's becoming a life style, which is a fascinating thing in its own right.
The Show was moved one week out - to October 8th - and October 9th is my birthday, as well as a day I am supposed to run a women-only half-marathon (for fun and chocolate). This is also a weekend we have to move out from our apartment to a new place. This is a real birthday Olga's style - never a dull moment. I am excited, anxious and looking forward to all the challenges life keeps throwing at me!
