Madonna-thon 2006

I’ve decided it is time to quit stewing in envy and start doing something about it so I’m about to embark on a ‘Madonna ain’t got nothin’ up on me’ campaign. We will not count her singing voice or her millions as part of this contest.

I am already training for a 65 mile bike ride at the end of March and I’m registered to run the San Francisco Marathon at the end of July and I like to swim so there’s no question that I’ll be getting lots of exercise over the next 6 months. I eat pretty well but I am going to impose a white-out on my diet which means no white food. No white rice (I prefer brown so no problem), no white pasta (I love whole wheat and soba so no problem), no white bread (I always eat whole wheat anyhow so no problem), and no white sugar. It takes me about 6 months to consume a 5 lb bag around here so all I have to do is swear off ice cream and cookies. Ouch.

Anyhow, what I really want to know is how do people insert those tidy data tables in the side bar of their blogs? You know, the ones that record exercise and diet. I am horrible with HTML tables so I hope there is a blog widget for doing that. At the very least do people use Front Page or Word to generate the table and then cut and paste the results into the template? Please do tell. I will need to make daily confessions to stay on track.

ps – Anyone care to join me? Misery reall does love company, you know.

    I was going to post the same question about the data tables. When you receive the answer please let me know. By the way I like your diet and by monday I will join you in the no-white rule.

    But the reason we exercise is so…we can eat, right??sigh. I love whole wheat pasta and all the stuff too. but once a week, I gotta have a donut.p.s. oh you could so be doing a tri!

    Yes we do run so we can eat and I intend to continue eating. I’m just trying to focus on the good stuff so that when I run I’m hauling around less junk in the trunk.I developed a healthy case of donut disgust years ago what was broken only briefly by the widespread distribution of Krispy Cremes. I’m over that now – and on to Chipotle.I did a tri once and hated it. I may do one next fall but then again – I might skip it. For now it’s all about Madonna-thon 2006 – woo-hoo!
