Me and my heating pad

I'm sitting here watching the NCAA Championship game with my trusty heating pad. I'm cheering for UCLA but, sadly, Florida is going to take it.

Tonight we had happy hour after work. Although I would much rather sit at the bar and drink, I only stayed for a little bit and had a coffee and Bailey's. Even though it is April now, it's freezing out and it sounded so good! Having a few beers was tempting, but instead I was a good girl and left to go to the gym. Definitley not a fan of this "training mentality" yet. On one hand you have sitting on your ass, drinking. On the other hand you have sucking air, in a hot gym, feeling everything jiggle that really shouldn't be jiggling. Hmm... that's a hard one. Although I'm sure reducing my alcohol intake will probably help take care of that jiggle thing. Whatever. I did 4 miles on the treadmill (11:30 pace), abs (30-20-10 crunches) and lots of stretching. My calf muscles are so sore that it hurts just to stand.

Both sides had the stabbing pains today (6 on a scale of 1 to 10) and tonight I have that sharp prickling feeling too. My physical therapist was excited that I was working out again and she said there were no limitations. She thinks working out will help the circulation in my abdomen and that it'll help. I'm not sure if it will or not, but I hope she's right. After hearing so many things from so many doctors, I tend to not get overly excited about what they think will help. It sounds so pessimestic, but I just can't handle more disappointments.

Oh, my camera and computer finally decided to place nice. Here's a look at what a fan I am - aren't my lucky undies SO cute!
