So. Had the ole’ follow-up doctors appointment today. It went well. She said my incisions were healing nicely and it’s normal for it to still feel tender. My stomach has went from black to blue to purple to brown to yellow. Philco said that is normal and that he would know because he’s been in lots of fights. Lovely. I hope he won…?
After she asked how I was really doing, and I burst into tears, she said it wouldn’t hurt to take another week off – which Boyzzz was trying to get me to do, but I never take time off work like this, so I feel like I’m taking advantage of it like everyone else does…And then I think maybe it would just be better to go back to work and it would help me forget about it all. I thought I was doing ok not thinking about it, but the last few days I’ve been a train wreck all over again. So I dunno…
She said as far as exercising though, it’s ok to start being active, but to start out slooooow…like just walking. Ugh, I hate walking! I’m thinking spinning would be ok though because I can just sit there and I won’t have that pounding/jumping going on. And lets be real, you can make spinning be as easy as you want it to be…
Now, on to the real important things – pumpkin. You didn’t think I would actually have a post without anything pumpkin did you?! Since The Sis was here over the weekend, and she’s just as much a pumpkin lover as I am, we pretty much bought every pumpkin thing at Trader Joe’s we could find, and tried it while she was here. This is what sisters are for.
Ya know, I really think Trader Joe’s should be paying me at this point instead of me paying them! I mean, really. My posts are like billboards for them…If it wasn’t for all my Trader Joe’s advertising, they probably wouldn’t even be in business! 😉
I was reading http://skinnyrunner.com/ the other day (yesterday, actually…) and she mentioned the movie ‘The Spirit of the Marathon’. Since I was having a little running pity party last night, I found it on Netflix and watched it. And bawled. Then I watched ‘Run for your Life’. And bawled. Then I watched ‘My Run’. And bawled. Yes, I was up until the wee hours of the morning. Poor PS2. I think he realizes how much running and working out helps to keep me sane because in the middle of watching one of the movies, and bawling my eyes out, he said he hopes the doctor gives the o-k for me to start running again. Thank the Good Lord for an understanding hubby. Now I have a list of more running movies that I want to watch, but they aren’t on Netflix so I have to go hunt them down!
Have you watched any of these movies?? Or any other running movies?
Are you a pumpkin addict every fall like me?
