Tanya brought us dinner tonight-it was so good! I have learned that my friends are really good cooks! She made a "spaghetti-meatball bake", garlic bread, Cesar salad and also brought us ice cream for dessert. It was a big hit with the family tonight!

"Biggest Loser" starts a new season tonight-I am excited about that! Brett and I always make a "date" out of watching it each week and it is very motivating to see the transformations of the contestants. Of course, Working out for 6 hours a day is not practical-(or safe!) but it does motivate me to do what I CAN do! I do not know how the people on that show can just show up, so overweight and out of shape, and then be thrown into such a rigorous exercise program. I would be half dead by the first day and I am in decent shape! Anyhoo-I am looking forward to watching the new season with my sweetie.

Today.....was a milestone for me. I got up, took the kids to school and then I went to Publix and bought some groceries! It was SOOOO nice to be able to do that! About half way through the shopping I began to get really tired-so I listened to my body and I went home and rested. After I rested for a while, I went to Wal Mart to finish up the rest of the shopping. Brett and I made a trip to Sam's Club tonight-(I was in a hurry Carrie or I would have stopped in to see if you were working :). We picked up a few things there and then we went to the school to pick up Brooke-she had an "away" volleyball game. Now-I am tired, tired,tired!! Brett got on to me and Tanya called me "stubborn" (who ME? Stubborn? ) but I just feel like I want so badly to get back to doing all that I did before. I realize that I may be "pushing it"-a little. I talked to someone today who messed up her surgery (12 weeks post op) by Vacuuming! I am afraid of messing everything up but I want to be well so badly! I think I will feel better once I see the doc next week-I feel like a expectant mother who is waiting for the ultrasound to tell her that her baby is healthy and his heart is beating! I just can not wait to see my x rays and see that the bones are growing together. They say 9 months to 1 year before they are fused completely but I pray I can see some progress next week.
Ok-I feel like I am rambling on now. I am going to go take a shower, take off this brace!, and get comfy in my bed!
