mid week recap...

I'm not going to lie...I've had a pretty outstanding week thus far (despite being crabby as all get out!!). I am down four pounds and have done some form of exercise each day. Today instead of staying inside at the gym, my pal and I are going to walk around St. Louis again-between 3 and 4 miles (haven't decided).

Tomorrow is scheduled as my day of rest...which I'm kind of looking forward to...but I'm sure I will do something (walking?cleaning house?) to burn some calories! More calories out than in right!!?

Another reason for an outstanding week is because my friend, who has been in the hospital for 21 days, is doing sooo sooo much better. He went to the hospital on Feb 28 because he was still running a fever, severely dehydrated, etc. Thought he just had a "lil bug"...turns out he had H1N1, which turned into severe pnemonia. He has been heavily sedated for much of the time..until which time they took out all his tubes (cuz he no longer needed them-yeay) and took him off the certain sedations. He is awake and smiling, hugging his dad, and trying to crack jokes!! He's got a long way to go but I'm so excited for him, his wife, and family.

  1. Wow, glad to hear your friend is feeling better! That sounds terrible.
    I would love if you want to send me your old webcam, but if you ever think you might want to do videos you'd better keep it! You'll kick yourself, LOL.
