We are back!!

Monday, December 29, 2008

We had the most wonderful, romantic anniversary!! I have many photos to share and I will try and post them in the next few days. As for now, we are busy trying to get ready for the movers to come and pack up everything as we are FINALLY moving back home to Texas! We are hoping to have our stuff shipped around the 12th of January and then we are leaving for the US the same week for a house hunting trip and for my husband to have some meetings in regards to his new position. We are also shipping our dog back with us on the same flight so we are trying to finalize all the necessary documents for him to leave Russia and to re-enter the US.

In terms of my program, I am doing well. I went to see a doctor on our visit and he confirmed what I had excepted, I have runners knee and in addition to that, behind my knee I have a baker's cyst. This was wonderful news because both are common not serious. I also have a strained ligament, in my right knee but again, it is nothing that ice and a few days of rest will not fix. I am taking some anti-inflammatories that he gave me and resting for a few more days before starting back slowly on the treadmill.

I will not be posting as much over the next few weeks because of all that we have going on, but I will try and post at least once a week my workouts and updates as to how I am doing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Blessings this new year to each of you!

Work hard, reach high!

    I love the links you posted on the BFFM thread for clean eating recipes! Thanks for doing that.

    Take good care while on the mend... hope all is going smoothly for your return trip, recovery, and house hunting.

    Your Grandma's video made me tear up! What a wonderful relative. Lucky to have her and thanks for sharing her!

    Glad your back! Sounds lovely as usual! My goal in life is to take vacations like Jen!!! lol~ So glad your on the final stage of coming home! How exciting! Texas will love having you back! Take care of your knee and be patient. Rest truly can work miricles when we are patient enough to let it happen. ( I've yet to really learn this one myself, but it sounds good!) I wish you a safe and healthy trip for you guys and pup!! We'll catch up when your all settled in!!

    great news about going home, jen!
    but take good care of that knee of yours. i've heard baker's cysts can be quite obstinate if you don't *really* rest, and with all you've got to do before the move you'll probably running around more than you should!
    oh, and happy and successful house hunting! and of course a happy, healthy and successful new year to the two of you!
