    I’m glad you made it through today … isn’t it odd when something affects you to the core, and most people have no idea? I guess it is humbling, if nothing else.

    I think you will really love 30 Day Shred, especially since you watch The Biggest Loser! It sounds kindof like your bootcamp that you do, but with more emphasis on weights. I have been doing it since I got it for xmas and can definitely tell a difference in my legs, abs, and arms … and I think it made me a better runner πŸ™‚ I regret not taking measurements before starting, so if that is something that seems interesting to you … I would recommend it!!

    Here’s to an even better day tomorrow πŸ™‚

    Expect to have to tell the story again..and again. It’s almost 2 years since my car accident, and I’m still having to tell the story to random people. At least your sister is doing well, and on the road to recovery.

    Glad to hear your days are getting back to normal but you must be exhausted from everything that has gone on.
    Funny, I packed almost the exact same sammy in my lunch tomorrow. Veggies on pumpernickle (my fav!)
    Good luck with the Shred challenge. I’ve started it this week to so I am right there with you girl!

    It is hard to realize life is normal after a big event. Its always shocking.
    Your lunch sammie is beautiful tho!

    I love the shred! I only ever do level 1 because level 2 is just insane and I can’t even imagine what level 3 is like.

    I can definitely relate to everything just going on as normal after something life-changing happens. The feeling is really… odd.

    I’ve definitely been sweating up a storm with the Shred and I’ve only done level 1!

    Wow thats a really scary thought. Thanks for reminding us of that.

    Love the blondie!

    That is a great dvd. Sammie looks awesome. I have been meaning to mention a book you might like if you haven’t read it already: Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnanzes. Since you are doing some endurance events, you might find it inspiring. It is the bible of all my guy friends, but I love it too.

    You write so well about how strange it is that the world keeps on turning when it feels to you like it came to a halt. I’m blown away by the fact that you managed to go back into work today – sounds like your spirit is as strong as your body!

    I’m so glad everything’s okay with your sister. Sometimes it takes a really intense experience like this to make you cherish what your body is able to do!

    I’m so glad that Kelly is doing better and that you made it through your first day back!

    I miss Sunshine Bakery. πŸ™ But I had scones this weekend (and each day since) too!

    i need to make some blondies! i see them on all of these blogs and they seriously make me drool everytime!

    it is weird to think that when tragedy strikes, the world goes on around you. i think the only good thing that can come out of it is how much you learn from the hard times in life! glad to hear your sis is doing well.

    I’m glad your sister is doing better, though it’s a bummer she can’t participate in the triathlon. I’m sure you’ll make her proud!

    Good luck with challenge! That blondie looks so good!

    Again, I’m so glad that your sister is ok!

    I obviously have not had such a major thing happen as you during my blog life, but even when little things happen, its like…who cares what I ate today, X happened! But then once things calm down, it is so natural to fall right back into blogging and life. Glad you are back, but gosh, don’t feel bad if you miss a post or take some time to yourself these next few days. You have been through a lot. You are a strong chick, but still give yourself enough time to “get those oogies out” as I always tell my girls.

    Or maybe you just need a blondie or two here or there πŸ˜‰

    i totally agree about the shred! mine came from amazon yesterday too, and i was amazed at how hard it was since i consider myself to be ‘in shape’. i don’t think i’ll be doing it every day, but definitely incorporating it as part of my routine.

    i’m so glad your sister is doing better — it’s times like these we really have a chance to put everything in perspective. family and friends are truly the most important things — without that, nothing really matters.

    Glad to see things are starting to get back to normal, I know it will take time…

    I’m interested to try this shred workout… What kind of weights do you need?

    Since giving up meat for lent I’ve barely craved any meat but like 2 days ago I started craving chicken, and bbq chicken looks amazing! A month from tomorrow I’ll be enjoying chicken again haha.
    I think I’m going to order the 30 day shred as well I’ve heard so many great things about it.

    The pumpernickel sandwich looks divine – especially sitting in the lovely sunshine!

    Sending hugs your way. πŸ™‚

    I love 30 day shred and it is in regular rotation with my workout DVDs. It’s hard, but short, so it’s SO worth it! I definitely can see a difference. I recommend starting easy with the weights (2-3 lb) till you are familiar with the routine and don’t feel exhausted by the reps (I always do!). Case in point, I did level 2 with 8 lbs Monday and I am in PAIN! So today it was back to level 1 with 5s…much better. Sorry for the unsolicited advice, but there ya go anyway! Haha πŸ™‚

    Caitlin inspired me to get that DVD too. I did level 1 Monday and level 2 yesterday & today. I weight train frequently and I am finding these workouts to be a real butt kicker. Good lucj with your workouts.
