Ceradad, I was wondering where you have been. What a great son you are. You could teach my teenage son a thing or two about being a good kid to his mom.

Glad your back!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. TQUAD, I wouldn't be too rough on your son. When I was a teen, I wouldn't haven't been too keen on the idea of hanging around my mom if she had done this then. I'm 38 now and can appreciate the fact she was there for all my injuries/surgeries.

Plus, the fact that I have been through so many injuries, I was able to tell let her know what she was going through for pain and how to deal with it was normal. Seemed to make a difference.

Of course, I'm paying for it now trying to get caught up at work.:rolleyes:

Off to the gym again for some self torture.

45 min spin class

Wii sounds so fun i just NEED to talk my wife into it.

Whosya~ My DH was really skeptical about getting the Wii, now I have to kick him off it so the kids and I can use it! He has been doing yoga since we got it at Christmas time and he is now kicking my butt on the poses!

Wii is really fun for the whole family!

Didnt exercise yesterday - had done 4 days in a row and was VERY sore from my sandbag workout (oh, how I love muscle soreness, lol).

Today we allowed ourselves the luxury of a sleep in. Its still boiling here, so indoors again, I'm going to do Cardio Coach 6 on my treadmill.

Tomorrow, my plan is a circuit. The kids go back to school monday (none too soon either), and this coming week is going to be hot, so on top of my normal routine, I thought I'd go to the outdoor pool and do some lap swimming (followed by lazing in the sun getting a tan and reading a book or two) a couple of days.

Cant stand swimming in indoor pools - I always get sick, always and all the hair and bandaids is revolting.

No exercise today for me - will try the Wii Yoga and step aerobics later tonight.

Did do something good for me today, though. . . . Today I bought a bike!

I am really excited about it. A lady from work has a relative who sells beach cruisers and he gave me an incredible deal on a 3-speed Phat bike.

I was figuring it out today - I haven't been on a bike since my daughter was 2. She's 11 now.

Praying for an early spring!

Today: 60 minutes treadmill 3.4 miles cross between jogging and power walking and 4% to 5% to mix it up a bit.:thumbup:

OMG: I just realized that today is the last day of January. I did 3.4 miles in 60 minutes and on January 1, I did 2.1 miles at 50 minutes. Wow, you really can build up your rate of speed if you just keep at it. Yahoo Team Tquad!!!!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

        That photo looks like one of my phlebotomy jobs. lol

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
