I have some good news and some bad news.  I normally prefer bad news first, but I think I’m going to make a little good news/bad news sandwich for you instead.  Seriously, who can turn down a sandwich?

Good: My mommy flew into town yesterday.  Yay!  She went with me to the sports doc and the grocery store (just what she wanted to do on her spring break…), and then we had Mexican dinner.  Yay Again!


Carne Asada & Caramelized Onion Quesadilla

Bad: This has been an off week for me.  I felt crappy Sun + Mon, which means I didn’t stick to the LiveFit diet plan.  I also had to skip a workout yesterday.  Since I left work early to pick up mom, I had to get to work early too.  Sometimes life happens, and sometimes diet/workout plans don’t.  (Oh, and I also gained the weight I had just recently lost.  Whoops!)

Mom, Tiff, and Dos Equis

Good: I plan to resume normal workouts today and tomorrow, but more importantly, I pick up where I left off next week.  I’m enjoying this plan, so I’m not throwing in the towel.  I’ll just repeat week 3.  Oh – and this is worth noting – I almost did my first real pullup on Tuesday.  I had some momentum getting up with a little hop, but this was the closest I’ve ever come, and it made me happy.  The other thing that made me happy – the doc said I don’t have a stress fracture or anything, so when inflammation goes down, I can run again.  Woohoo!

Know what else would make me happy?  If you guys voted for me.  Thanks!

    Oh good-I’m glad you went to the doc and found out it’s just inflammation! And tell your Mom “HI” from me. I’m sure the two of you are having fun.

  2. A real pull-up? Nice! I just sorta dangle there…

    Good luck getting back into the workouts!

  3. Sometimes it is better to just let life go with the flow and take over. That’s how I’ve been living the past week or so. No strict plans or routines for eating and working out – just doing what I feel and letting it happen.
    Congrats on the pull up! That is really awesome.

    Sandwiches are the best place for bad news, ’cause then you know it was good before and it’ll be good again, so no big deal. And I love that yellow necklace you have on in the last pic! Early morning baked goods are making me happy this week. As is this amazing 80-degrees-in-March weather!

  5. Hey man, life happens I love that 🙂 It is soo true.

    The only thing on my mind this week is my run on sat!

  6. It’s been a hard week. I blame the time change for sure!
    Seriously though, you look tiny! I doubt the little amount of weight you gained was anything!

    Enjoy your time with your mom and yes let life happen! You’re a healrthy eater and a few indulgent days here and there (especially with ur mom!) are totally normal! Happy about your hip!

  8. Good stuff about the pull up, and about the running too 🙂

  9. I would LOVE to work up to a pull-up, we’re thinking of installing a bar in the backyard later this year. Congrats on your progress and don’t worry about this little set-back.

  10. I am so jealous, I am not even close to a pull up haha That’s so great about the running!
    and that quesadilla looks so delicious! I hope you have so much fun with your moms visit!

  11. That quesadilla looks sooooo good. I’m craving one like mad this week.

    Congrats on the pull up! that’s no easy feat!

  12. The great thing about the livefit is that you can take however long you need to finish! It’s more of a journey, not a destination 🙂

  13. On the plus side, that food looks amazing!
