Well, I hope Mel is right and that absence does make the heart grow fonder. Jo had agreed to post my blogs if I would email them to her...never happened. Sadly my computer did not make it. We will be having a small ceremony later in the month! My new computer that really isn't all that new had been giving my fits with internet. Finally my nice sweet hubby and equally nice brother in law sat down and figured out the problem. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Anyway a quick update...I had knee surgery after the skateboard accident for a torn ACL and meniscus. I stayed home three weeks to recover. Back to work finally but that only meant off to several conferences. We went to Vegas for the National Youth Football tournament for my 9 year old to play in. They ended up 2nd. We are in Dallas right now for the State High School Football. Our school won in their first state appearance in school history. Can't think of much else to update so on to current life.

I am still cracking. It was hard post surgery cause lots of people sent food and I had to rely on someone else to get up and get my food for me. I still lost according to the doctor. I was glad it was pounds and not muscle cause my leg has really shriveled. I am still going to physical therapy. I was cleared to run last week but have been scared to give it a go. So far, I have stuck to the bike. I know the cut off for realistic training for OKC was like last week so I will need to get started to finish alive. I was measured for my real knee brace last week and will feel better with it on. My current brace doesn't stay up well so I would rather wait.

I have tried carb deplete a few times but haven't been very committed. I have to finish my weight loss journey so I can get on with living a healthy life. I asked my hubby if we could do a race in Hawaii in September if I was down to my goal weight and fitness level. He said to start planning it. I have really looked at the cost but would like something big to look forward to. I guess the threat of you will die if you don't loose this weight didn't work. (Is that the right loose/lose?)

Everyone is starting to wake up so I better sign off for now. I am so excited to be back among my blogging friends. I can't wait to see what has happened to you all while I have been gone.

Glad you are back and that the knee is on the mend. Super proud of you for stickin' with the crackin'. My diet hasn't been all that great recently. I have tried all kinds of forms of motivation and so far I just haven't found the right one. I am going to keep trying though. That trip sounds like a good one though! Might have to put a bug in my hubby's ear too. You never know what will work.
