Back to Life

Well my biking plans were foiled by the realization that it is hunting season. I was kind of looking forward to trying out some trail riding, but it is probably better that I didn't trash my mom's bike. Instead I did some strength training and played some Wii on Friday :) Not aerobic but I didn't want to run two days in a row yet.

Yesterday we spent most of the day at the hospital but I broke out for a 30 minute run. I'm not ready for winter that is sure, the cold wind was not fun! My legs feel good. I climbed the stairs several times yesterday and other than some quad pain I think I'm pretty much back to normal. Hopefully my whole system will be feeling fine in another week or so. I want to keep effort light just in case my immune system is still catching up.

Despite eating like a horse the past three days my weight has stayed steady. I guess going into JFK and Thanksgiving light was a good thing as now I am right where I want to be. Now I just have to work on some toning during the winter!

I'll break out the trainer tonight to get some points in for VTC. We'll see how the kitties react to the noise. I'm ready to get over to my gals JT's for some trainer action followed by a light run soon.

KT should be heading home from the hospital today. She managed to get off the IV yesterday and is taking all medications orally. The steroids are definitely not helping her mood but thankfully she won't be on them long.

Dad and I are heading back to Ohio in a little bit. I'm looking forward to snuggling up with my kitties and my hubby. Even when he's gone two days I miss him. It's nice to be in love :) First I have to go pick up a maize and blue outfit for Trisaratop's little one as I could not bring myself to go shopping on Friday. I hate shopping to begin with, I don't know how anyone can deal with those mobs! So it is off to the stores and then we are loading up the awesome cabinet my Grandparents are passing down to us and heading home. Pictures later!

Careful out there during hunting season... that's something that I would overlook. But good thing for me I'm too big a wimp to ride past September.

I wish all the best to you and your sister. I hope that you had time to spend with your family and rest up.

Just catching up. Sorry to hear about sis. I am sure having such a supportive family is helpful!!

Glad to hear your sister is progressing, and that your legs are feeling good after PR race!

I have the solution to your hatred of shopping... don't buy "maize & blue"... that would depress anyone. I suggest you try winning colors like scarlet & grey!! It will be GREAT to have you back in
O - H - I - O !!!!!!!!!!!

I hope your sister continues a speedy recovery!!! Glad to hear she will be returning home soon!

It's amazing how good of an upper-body workout you can get with a Wii -- I'm not kidding!

Vickie said...

Glad to hear your sister is doing okay. And something like this helps the rest of us put things in perspective about our own health, good or otherwise. Maize and Blue, like in U of M? There is the website (or something like that). I've done whatever shopping in the stores I am going to do. The rest will be online shopping!
