I know that I’ve been slacking on the site. I have the colophon page’s content 95% done. I have the about page 25% done. I have the basic color scheme and background idea ready to go in photoshop so that once all the content is up, I can get the site looking the way I want it to… I just don’t have TIME!
Ben is doing well. He’s getting around on crutches. Over the next two weeks he can start putting more and more weight on his leg and should be off them alltogether at his next appointment. Then he has to do some physical therapy. And THEN(!!) he will not have to worry about his knee bothering him anymore. And he can drive his happy little heart out.
In the first two weeks of the new year with the help of a pretty strict diet and lots ‘o exercise I lost 5 pounds. FIVE POUNDS! Last weekend though I kinda ‘fell off the wagon’ while taking care of The Benjamin and ate like crap for two straight days. Tonight I was up two pounds netting me a 3 pound loss total. DAMMIT! I’m back on track though. That 5 pounds was a total morale booster and I’m more determined than I’ve been in a long time. And really, I figured that I’d have gaind all five back… heh The best part is that after two weeks tonight on the eliptical machine I was able to up my intensity from an eight to a nine and went half a mile farther than two weeks ago.
The best news though is that the demon in my belly is responding well to the new diet. I’ve cut out all red meat and am down to VERY lean chicken and turkey or no meat at all for all my meals. I’ve also cut 95% of the dairy out and I’ve discovered that Special K w/ Red Berries + Vanilla Soy Milk is SO. Damn. Yummy. I went four whole days without an “attack”. Saturday I got a burger from Carls Jr on the way home from the taking Ben to the doctor and I was sick for a good 24 hours after that.
Anyway, I just wanted to make sure that ya’ll know I’m alive and hope *crosses fingers* to have the site back to normal and running smoothly and more regularly in the next two or so weeks.
