Intense desire to be a runner + 2 knees genetically predisposed to injury =

I've been really good about eating and working out, and today my knee decided it wanted some more time off (translation: I think I have torn some cartilage) so I snapped and defrosted a pumpkin cake I had in the freezer. Fortunately, it had freezer burn so I ate a piece and threw it away.I also got an amazing deal on this rug today. It is really beautiful, the only problem being that it is pink. I don't really decorate with pink, but I might get away with putting it in my garden room. If I can't stand it, I guess I'll roll it up and save it until I figure out how to use it.

I think your rug is beautiful! It looks great in your garden room and it's a dark enough pink that I don't think it screams pink!

Hi, It's Amy, Martha's friend. Absolutely love the rug, it looks great in your room. Awhile ago you blogged about the Body for life plan...are you still doing it? I just picked up that book from the library and decided to try it out.

The rug is really beautiful and it isn't super *pink*, at least not on my screen.
