OT: Hot as a mutha!!!

Okay, I'm sick of the heat. What I wouldn't give for a crisp autumn day, warm socks, a hot mug of tea and a slice of pumpkin pie, right now.

But nooooooooo - the whole country, it seems, is roasting. Please enjoy the following rant that closely reflects how I'm feeling right now:

The difference a year makes

A year ago, yesterday, I spent the entire day bed-ridden, in pain, and alone in my new house. My DS23 spent the day with his dad. I had just re-herniated my disc 8 days prior. I was separated from XH2, anxious, tired and broken hearted, but still happy to be out of the home we shared, and our house sold.

This year, I am not married. I'm not in pain, nor am I anxious. Instead, got up yesterday and went for a long bike ride (dang it was hot).

OT - Happy Spring

Spring begins at exactly 5:58 pm, today. Happy spring, biotches!!

In celebration, my cycling group is doing a 12 mile after work ride around some small lakes. The first ride was me and another guy who lives in my neighborhood. Today will be myself, a couple people from my kayaking group and 2 guys from the neighborhood. We have another ride planned for Sunday afternoon!

OT: Better and better

Life is good, my friends.

I've been in the gym, dieting and I AM KILLING it. I've dropped some pounds and will soon have to drop a jean size. My diet is pretty low carb, so the cellulite is almost eradicated. I'm doing cardio, swimming, strength training, and hiking. I feel great.

In my class the other day, the instructor did have us try some jumping jacks and I could feel a tiny twinge on my sciatic nerve. No bueno. I did the modified move. Wink
