Today marks 2 weeks since I started going to Planet Fitness. I've already noticed a significant improvement in heart rate (I have to work harder to get it in the target range), the time it takes my heart rate to recover, and I've lost 9 pounds. IN JUST 2 WEEKS. I also feel fantastic every night after my workout

I just wish my ankles would cooperate and let me do C25k properly, instead of crapping out on me after 2 weeks every. single. time.

It's Friday. Oh I'm so happy. <3

Also...big announcement... I got off work last night, got in the car, and my sister had a baby bunny on her lap! My dad was at the co-op getting some hardware and they had baby bunnies. He wanted to surprise us and we were DEFINITELY surprised!

We have her cage way up off the ground on top of our tall dresser in our bedroom, and are going to eventually build a shelf way up high where she will be safe. (I may also install a chain on the outside of our door.) I wasn't planning to have another rabbit with Violet in the house, but she is here, and we are going to take whatever steps needed to keep her safe. (Any ideas?)

She is lop eared, but I don't know if she's a holland lop, mini lop, some kind of mix? I don't know. But she is precious.

Do you have a good running shoe store near you? I would go in there and see if they can work with you to figure out what's going on. It sounds like you're not in the right shoe or you need some additional support somewhere. If they don't have ideas, go see a physical therapist. Something is going on if you reliably have problems with your ankles after a couple of weeks...

I'm pretty sure it's from when I sprained my ankle a few years back. The doctor I went to was pretty crappy and didin't give me any exercises to rebuild strength or anything. I'm wearing my ankle support thing (not a brace really, still allows movement) to see if it helps, then go from there.

So being able to do basically whatever I want for myself, and buying things for myself, and making decisions for myself is pretty awesome. Maybe this single thing isn't so bad.
