I am training to be a cage fighter!

Um....okay.....maybe I am not quite ready for cage fighting yet but I feel good enough to!

THANK THE LORD!!! I want to shout from the roof tops how much better I feel (that is how improved my life is)!

I pray it was a virus because if this comes back continuously (as morning sickness) I will want to impale myself from listening to all my moaning (yes, at one point I literally laid on the floor and moaned - the dogs thought I wanted a tongue bath).

I even didn't mind going to school and dealing with my two button-pushers. By the way....26 days left my friends!!!

So in the glorious fortune that is my good health (seriously you have no idea how good you have it until it is gone), I went to the grocery store and bought all my healthy stuff again. And guess what? I discovered a new kind of m&ms. They are pretzel. They come in a blue bag and they are delicious (they are also a lot lower in calories than say, the peanut m&ms)! The checker took one look at me and handed me the bag directly and said "these must be for your purse." Of course they were. I did not skip a beat, I snatched them right from her hand (I was pretty darn hungry). You may think this is a rude comment, however, I am looking pretty pregnant today. I can tell because #1 - I have a mirror but #2 - many people stopped me today, stared at me and said "oh you look so cute and pregnant today" and one parent (whom I see daily) who said "what? you're pregnant? you were hiding it well (bless her - I wasn't but that was nice to hear)"

I am working my way back up to my high intensity exercise. So far this week - just walking. Hopefully Thursday I will be back to classes.

Hope your Tuesday was as good as mine! Wednesday I have one of my old students and her mom coming over. They are making me tacos. I love tacos! Seriously, someone coming to my house to cook for me. Does it get much better? The weekend is getting closer.....

Yay for you... it sounds like things are going well and that parent's comment about you hiding it well was definitely a keeper!

Yep...me and those pretzel M&M's met last week...I am thrilled that they are lower in fat, but I am a little bit scared of them, they are too good!
Congrats on the comment - that is fantastic!
I am so looking forward to having energy again...only a few more weeks for me, I hope!

So glad to hear you are feeling better!

I am so excited that you are feeling better. You are exactly right about not knowing what you have until it's gone. I wasn't a huge fan of running, but I did it. It was until I was diagnosed with achilles tendinitis that I wanted to run. Go stinkin figure! Anyways...thanks for you great post! I bet you look so great! I can't wait to be pregnant myself :)

and yes.
I grabbed those pretzel m&ms at walmart. put em in cart. and a few aisles put em back (and not even where they belonged :) I feared if I returned to that aisle I might go crazy and grab more :))
