Well, Iím still alive and breathing. It has become so hard to make the time to get on SparkPeople and visit with my friends here.
So I just thought Iíd throw in a quick update on how things are going in this crazy life of mineÖ
New boss = new responsibilitiesÖ who knew!? Things around the office are much more pleasant than they were in the past and I have a whole new level of motivation when it comes to my job. (Itís amazing what a change in atmosphere will do for the soul!) I used to spend quite a bit of time on spark and I rarely was on when I was at home. Well THAT has changed! I have little extra time at work and Iím totally ok with that. But this is the biggest reason for my absence here.
Weight loss is still good. At this point Iím maintaining (my size anyway). Iíve actually put on almost 10 lbs but Iíve gone up roughly 2% in muscle mass. I havenít gotten smaller but havenít gotten bigger eitherÖ and can definitely feel the difference in my strength when Iím lifting the kiddo (unless he lost weight).
I actually just had to invest in a bunch of new jeansÖ 1) the new boss lets us wear jeans to work (this guy is too good to be true!) 2) none of my jeans fit right.
Too small, too bigÖ I had absolutely nothing that looked right. So I had to fix that and thought it would be a good idea to spruce up the accessories and shirt sections as well! I feel pretty cute these days, and thatís a great feeling!
Iím done with races for the year. Running through any form of water past the 15th of October is not and I do mean NOT my idea of a good time. I donít like being cold! The hubs has 2 more OCRs this month and then I think heís taking a break as well. But I do have a 5K coming up in November.
Looks like Iíll be scheduling surgery on my foot. I have a bunion (geeze, that makes me sound old) and that happens to be the same foot I injured during my first OCR. It hasnít been the same since then. Pretty much constant painÖ and my shoes are pretty uncomfortable at this point. So Ė while all that totally sucks, I am looking forward to being able to move forward and to quit using that as an excuse on my running.
We are hoping to get the surgical ball rolling soon, because there is an even bigger challenge ahead. We have decided to try for another kiddo. Iíd like to get the surgery done and gone before I get preggers. (Iím a planner, what can I say!)
I think that's it for now. Hopefully I can still continue to move forward and I just want everyone to know that I do think of my Sparkfriends often - but it just doesn't work out for me to be able to get on here much!
