Still leashed...

So I will be leashed for another 6 weeks.

Still not allowed to run, bike more than 20 min., lunges, squats, etc.

I have however been cleared for Wii Fit...but only the balance part, no strength training.

Back In Colorado

Totally missed a good friends retirement Happy Hour on Friday...since I was trying to recover from the Sales meeting, flights, and PT.

Did get a great beer dinner in last night. Four course meal that included spinach artichoke dip, prime rib, potatoes, asparagus, caramel apple pie...and of course beers from the Leinenkugel brewery. Mummmm.....can't wait for the next one in April.

Survived the Holidays...barely

Well I am finally back in CO after the holidays. What a trip!!! My sister-in-law keeps trying to have a baby way to early, my knee swelled up, rock band has now entered our house, and my grandmother gave us the use of her condo in Hawaii!!!!

I am now officially behind in's time to pick up the pace. I guess not going for 2 weeks tends to do that to one after surgery. I am now 6 weeks out of surgery...less than 9 more until running my first steps.

Heather (sister-in-law) is bound and determined to have "cletus the fetus" early. She is now on permement bed rest...lets get those lungs developed before popping out of the womb.

I am totally excited about the prospect of spending my 35th birthday in Hawaii!!! Bring on the warm waters and sandy beaches.

We now have Rock Band and Guitar Hero in our if we needed anything else!!!
