Speedy post!

Sorry I've been negligent in my posting. Life's getting all crazy and such. I should be back to my normal schedule now that my oldest is back in school. She's in a year-round charter right now and they had a 2 week fall break, plus Columbus Day, which threw everything for a loop as far as my school schedule went. The first Monday was wrangled OK as my kids were visiting my parents, but the other two involved some variation of childcare fail. Next semester I'm taking Tuesday/Thursday classes instead of Monday/Wednesday ones in an effort to hopefully avoid some of the Monday-holiday issues we've had this semester.

My unfill has definitely helped in the pain department, but oddly enough, now I think my band is too loose. I guess this thing really does have some serious fine-tuning needs. On my next appointment, I'll be having Dr. Ganta put back in .25cc, as my portions are still kind of out of whack. I get stuck every once in while, but if I chew and take my time, I can now usually down a couple of cups of food at a sitting again. hrm. :

The scale moved the right direction again last week, and I think it will again this week, though I've been trying to stay off the scale. There's definitely a pattern to my weight loss (and gains), it seems. I should graph it at some point. :)

Today was Week 2, Day 1 of C25K for me. I completely kicked its ass today for some reason. Maybe because I wasn't actually at the "couch" setting, physically, to start, but I'm finding it not too hard to do 3-4 minute runs broken up with 60-90 second walks. I think whenever I officially get to the 4th or 5th week, I'm going to try to start doing it on a trail near my house instead of at the gym, at least once or twice a week. Hopefully by then it will be cooler here, and the terrain running will be better training for the Warrior Dash than treadmill running.

I should be working on my Chem lab right now, but I left my syllabus at home, so I have no idea which lab to start working on. So, it's email, FB, and blog catchup time for a few minutes, woohoo! :D

Hope everyone is doing great!


  1. hi there - good to see you back. I'm headed your way Sunday. How's the weather??? Trying to figure out how to pack.... though I'm sure the conference room will be freezing all the time. they usually are. I'm really bummed that this trip is so ridiculously tight so I'm not sure I'll even get to experience the city at all :(

  2. Weather is typical for this time of year... that is to say, in the high 60s/low 70s in the morning, and warming through the day to end in the upper 80s or low 90s.

    Yeah, Austin doesn't let go of summer easily! heheh

    I've been wearing jeans and tops of various styles to school, and I always bring a hoodie or light sweater, as the classrooms (and lab especially) are freezing. I spent yesterday at the zoo with my youngest, and wore jeans and a t-shirt out there, and was only starting to feel a bit toasty around 2pm.
