Who's that lounging in my chair

Updates and Random Stuff:

Koz is doing a lot better. He seems to be getting his spark back. Still no biopsy results. I hope that we will know something early next week.

I have a plan for my knee. I am going to be really busy between now and November. So, what I plan to do is stick to the elliptical, bike and swimming through November and then try running again. If the knee pain returns once I start running again I'll go get a second opinion and see if I can find a Doc who will tell me what I should do. I am getting increasingly frustrated with the way the first doc left things...I feel like I paid $300 for an MRI and no answers!

On the same front it is time that I get moving. And to once again keep myself accountable I am going to post my workouts on a regular basis. I won't have any exciting charts or stats...but, the goal is to keep my aerobic level high so when I get back to running I won't have that hurdle to overcome.

I need to get some new tops for the new responsibilities that I am taking on with my job.I am a huge banana republic girl and I have found three tops from there that I really like. But, I want to step outside the Banana Republic box a little. Any of you ladies have any ideas for dressy, but a little different, work shirts?

I have a new favorite "cheap" wine. It is an R.H. Phillips Chardonnay. It is so nice and light but good (don't know ant fancy wine words for it). I would recommend giving it a try!

I am having family at the house tomorrow night. This is the first time this group has been together in a while so, my friend Matt is coming over to take some pictures. The work is done on the front of the house and it looks a lot better. In addition to trimming the trees we added three hostas, a knockout rose, a hydrangea and a bunch of black eyed susan's and purple cone flowers! I am going to get some hanging baskets in the morning to put the icing on the cake!
Thanks again for all of your thoughts about Koz and my knee situation.

Take Care

Good luck with the knee. I have to agree from what I read of your posts, that first doctor seemed to leave alot on the table without providing much in the way of answers for you....that has to be very disappointing.

Sounds like you've done alot of work on the house, I'm sure it looks great.

Glad that Koz is feeling better too...

I'm glad to hear that you're remaining committed to staying active. I know it's easy to throw in the towel at a time like this, but switching gears is the better way to go.

So get out there and splash around!

Good plan for the knee. I don't blame you for being frustrated with the doctor.

Work shirts...I find some of my shirts at the Limited. I must really be getting old though, most of their stuff looks too trendy to me.

Glad you're "back"...and again, good luck with your knee. I have faith you'll be running again eventually! Also glad your puppy is doing better. :-)

I love to find work shirts at Express. Its been going downhill for me lately, but its usually the first place I go to for new business clothes.

good luck with the knee. There are plenty of other exercises out there for you to choose from besides running...biking, swimming, cardio weight lifting...

You may want to look into doing sprint triathlons. That way you will not be running that much and you could incorporate swimming and biking into your routine.

Good Luck!
