Before I launch into my own hundrum life, I just wanted to give a HUGE HUGE scream of support to Momo, who received some fantastic news today. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!
As for me, the grapefruit is still hanging on for dear life on the front of my lower torso, so, uh, that's been pretty rad.
And frankly, disgusting.
I have managed to ride my bike (on the trainer) several times. The first couple rides were sort of difficult, mostly becuase my knees/thighs would hit the grapefriut (yes, that is how HUGE it is). But I have worked myself up to a full hour as of last night. I felt fantastic, strong. I noticed though, that was WIPED OUT by about 10pm, so clearly the body is still recovering.
And before I get any (loving) lectures on doing too much too fast, I have been VERY careful not to overdo it. On the days I feel like doo-doo, I simply lay in bed and give myself toof cavitites by binging on Coco Puffs and ice cream. On the days I feel semi-human, I ride for 30-45 minutes, but the second I start to feel tired or winded, I hop off the bike.
No shame in my game. I know my limits.
Tomorrow is my first non-crisis-related post-surgery appointment, and I fully expect to get the green light on the running.
Which will be coming at a very good time because......
Well, I guess you'll have to tune in tomorrow for the big comeback announcement.....
