things and updates and thoughts and feelings...

it's been a while since i blogged about anything.  life has been interesting, so may as well jabber about it.

rachel & i went on a little road trip to columbus.  it was so much fun just driving and talking.  we saw stacy & mark, had a great meal, and i discovered the manhattan.  we spent an hour driving down high street, reminiscing about the places and people we knew back in 1988- 1998.  it was a nice nostalgic drive.  see pics here.

i'm mostly recovered from surgery.  it's been a little over 2 months.  i still get tired sometimes and my stomach swells.  i haven't been able to wear jeans in ages.  annoying, but so glad i had the hysterectomy.  because now i can go to the gym any day!

so yeah, i've been back to the gym.  swimming 3-4 days a week.  i'm back up to my full 45 minute water workout.  next week i'd like to try to get back to spinning.  then weights.  i won't meet my goal to be under 200 by the end of the year (thanks to major surgery) but that's ok.  i'm proud of my accomplishments this year and i know i'll lose a few more pounds by the end of the year.

i let bad eating habits (like fast food and chewing cough drops) sneak back in after surgery.  not as bad as before, but it needs to stop.  i'm working on getting back to good eating habits.  eating tons of vegetables, lean meats, fruit, tofu, nuts, and a small amount of cheese & grains.  in that order.

i start my fancy new job on monday.  i'm super excited and a bit nervous.  it's like the first day at a new school.  wondering who will eat lunch with me.  where i'll sit.  what to wear.

ok, enough jabber.  i need to go run errands and start worrying about monday.  also need to go enjoy the last of the warm weather before the cold & wind return.

here's a funny for ya:
