How would you like to live next door to this house? You would have to wear a welders mask in order to get any sleep at night. The house down the road was even worse.
We drove around looking at Christmas lights this past weekend; you could see these houses a mile away. I even busted out my Victoria Secret Christmas CD for the special event. We had a blast.
Training has been good. Saturday I did my longest run that I have done since the 20 miler two months ago (before I had the PE). I think that it hurt just as bad too. I eeked out a little over 5 miles and then went home and collapsed on the couch. It's going to be a long, slow road to where I once was, but I'll get there! Next weekend, I hope to be back up to 6 miles.
Sunday, I rode the bike trainer for about 35 minutes, keeping my cadence above 85 RPM at all times. I then did some stability ball exercises. I hate that damn ball, but my core is starting to see some definition again, so it must be working.
I just realized that I haven't done a gratitude list in quite awhile, so here it is:
1.) I am thankful for my job. Yes, I do complain about it and I sometimes hate it, but there are so many out there without jobs, so I have to be appreciative.
2.) I am thankful for Starbucks Gingerbread Lattes and Diet Mountain Dew. Without them, I would be a grumpy bitch in the mornings.
3.) I am thankful for my health insurance. I am starting to receive all of the bills from my October hospital stay and my subsequent treatment and they are in excess of $40,000 and they STILL keep coming. Not to go all political on you, but I would hate to be someone without insurance right now. You never know what will happen and I feel for people who are losing their homes, etc in order to pay for health care. My yearly cap on my insurance is $3K.
4.) I am thankful that I do not live next door to someone who has lights all over their house like in the above picture. Homeowners Associations are worth something after all.
5.) I am thankful to all of you who take time out of your day to come and read my blog! I will be reading all of your posts very soon!
