Holy Camolie Batman!!

I didn't realize it had been so long since last I posted!! An update on my condition is required I do believe.

I'm doing good. If anything I'm almost doing to good as I figure I'm stronger than I am and then overdue it. For example I was at the gym last week and did 15 minutes on the treadmill at a faster pace than I should have and at a much higher incline than should have. Then I did the machines, more time on the treadmill and then 10 minutes on the bike. And promptly did myself in for the next few days. That's just an example of the stuff I've managed to OVERdo.

I'm back at work. This past week I worked 3 days a week for only 4 hours each day I worked and next week and the week after I'm in all 5 days, but still for only 4 hours a day and then (hopefully) the week after that I plan to be back full time.

I've been working out at the gym - as a matter of fact I plan on heading over there shortly. I'm trying to hold back but - I'm not always good at it :-) I'm still going to physio though I'm down to once a week and after next week that should be once every other week. I'm not even using a cane now, though I'm carrying it 'just in case'.

I had an MRI yesterday for what they think is a pinched nerve. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be though it was annoying. I wasn't nearly as claustrophobic as I thought I would be, but it was real loud and it took a lot longer than I thought it would.

I'm still not smoking - and that's a good thing. I've been eating a bit more bad stuff the past few days so I'll have to nip that in the bud!

And I've been reading quite a bit too. Hopefully I'll have some reviews shortly.

So - sorry for disappearing like that again. Hopefully I won't do it again :-(

Kristie!! Not smoking?!?!?! I'm so proud of you!! The patch seems to work for me. Well, at least better than anything else I've tried.

Keep up good work ;)

Woohoo, Kristie :) It's good to hear from you! Seems like you've made some good changes lately :) Although my first reaction was: Oh no, Kristie got the gym bug as well! LOL. Keep it going about the not smoking :) and I'm glad you're back to work!!

Missed you Kristie! I am the most horrible of bloggers, yet I do try to swing by every once in a (great) while. Glad you're doing well, and not smoking. I can't imagine how difficult that is.

Hoping you have some great books to pimp out :)

Glad to have you back again - I'm working on that AAR poll and I'm aching all over - but I don't have anything to complain about if you are all serious on those exercises! Wow. And congrats on not smoking - that's a huge hurdle!
