First off, what do you think of the new design?!  It's totally different that the last one... and my first real redo since settling on a design months back.  I wanted something a little fresher, springier.  Any suggestions for improvement?  I'm sure it will get tweaked a bit in the next few days...

So onto the diet.  No, I'm not really remaking my diet.  But I was thinking today about how I should start paying attention now to what I am eating throughout the day, so that in three weeks when I'm laid up after my surgery, I won't gain like a billion pounds and become a lazy blob who will break my nice clean bikes.  Clearly that is an exaggeration.  But when I had this ankle whacked on years back, I had a hard time not eating crap.  When I can't do stuff, I get grumpy, and when I'm grumpy I eat.  You can see the road that would go down...   Anywho, I started to thinking about trying to eat more veggies than ice cream and more fruit than cookies.  So for dinner, I made a lovely salad to eat with my leftover Thai food from mango sticky rice night.  I do realize there are many croutons, and they don't count as health food... but they were getting stale so I had to use them.  Anyway, we've got arugula, tomatos, red onion, carrots, a bit of feta, and some greek dressing.  It was delish. 

And then I had some ice cream. But not too much. I love ice cream.



I've also been thinking of ways to keep in shape with one leg.  I did the same thing back in January when I hurt the ankle to begin with, and really it was an unsuccessful effort.  I jumped on one foot... did some situps... tried to ride a bike with one leg (that's a fail... they should invent one you can power with your knee...)  So I am thinking there will be lots of upper body working, and swimming a LOT when I am allowed.  In my mind, I should be allowed to swim right away.  I am the reason they invented gortex cast padding.  But they tell me it was for 8 years olds who broke their arms and can't keep it dry in the bathtub.  Bummer.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the new look!

Cheers,
Kari

I was thinking about my eating habits last night.

As I was eating poptarts in bed.
