Back to the norm

I am itching to get back to it. I feel deflated, bloated, fat and gross. Unfortunately when I get sad/stressed I am not the type that looses my appetite, nope, I am the time that jumps head first into chocolate cake. The few lbs I had lost are back, plus a few. I got in about 15 miles this week, decided just to make it my recovery week, which was due this upcoming week. So, I am on deck for a 14 miler this coming weekend.

My body is aching to do something, run, swim, bike, lift. Tomorrow I am going to hit it hard with weights before work and Excel class after work and I am very much looking forward to it. What I am not looking forward to is the 323 emails in my in box and everyone asking me how I am doing. I hope I don't have to talk about my dad passing over and over again. But I know people just mean well, but I am ready to get back to normalcy.

Today G and I went hiking to Brandywine falls, we got some pretty pictures that I'll post soon. We made an AWESOME dinner of salmon, grilled veggies and just perfectly cooked sweet potatoes. Perfect super bowl dinner. Now I am catching up on my magazines that came this week. But am ready for bed, I have been so stinking tired and I most definately have a sore throat. I tend to get sick when I am under stress. I can't afford to take anymore days off, so I hope this passes quick.

Hey! I'm glad you are back in the swing of things! Good luck catching back up to your routine, I'm sure it'll come back quickly.

Oh! Guess who found me on myspace? Your niece Ashley! I haven't seen her in forever!

Have a good one!
