Second Period: Training Room (21.38)
Fitness: Another 10+ mile week featuring lots of bike time and ice skating with the Charlotte Checkers :)
I'm not sure about this tracking and rewards thing.
Self-Care: A little off-topic. My reaction to Splenda and my encouragement that you don't have to eat diet foods to lose weight. Little bit of a soap box here.
Second Intermission: Around the League (31.26)
Check out the Backhand Shelf Podcast and Blog! WARNING: they curse a LOT.
Third Period: Hockey Talk (34.26)
This is where I go long, folks.
I went to a Checkers game and got to skate with the team after. It was awesome and I wanted to tell you all about it! :)

I took on extra data entry work this week. =P
Been feeling overwhelmed and a soap box about depression.
PLEASE understand that when I say there are certain things I have to be vigilant about to keep my depression at bay, sometimes it doesn't work and the depression gets me anyway. Depression is NOT a character flaw any more than cancer is. It's a terrible, awful disease that kills people every day. :( I didn't want anyone to take what I said the wrong way.
