I am sorry that I've been MIA but I just needed to take some time off from blogging to rest and deal with a busy family unit.  You understand, right?

Sunday was a total rest day

  • AMT 31 minutes
  • Weights 15 minutes

  • Ran 58 minutes in the cold, rain and wind, good times...good times

  • AMT 40 minutes
Still a

I am still losing the lb's (1.8 this past week), eating healthy-ish (love those jalapeno Cheetos), and exercising 4-5 days a it's all good.  I am still healing from surgery, although the stitches and pain are gums are still reshaping so my partial is not real tight.  I have to take the partial out to eat some foods...ermergerd!  Needless to say I cannot eat some foods at all, and some foods just take a lot more work than others.  I normally eat mainly vegan but I have been eating yogurt since I had my surgery just to get the calories and nutrition in my body. 'Nuff said!

Blessings and hugs to y'all, may your days be filled with sunshine and joy! Have a great weekend, cherish the time with your families and loved ones and hug yer dog/cat/bird/pig/alligator...etc!

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
