The cutest thing ever! (and no, I don't mean me)

Pretty high on my list of obsessions is the panda bear. Ever since I first saw some at the Toledo Zoo in the late 80's, I FELL IN LOVE with these adoreable creatures. In college, there were some in the U.S. on loan and they were all over the papers. That year, my roommate got me a baby stuffed panda for my birthday and my floor (I was an RA) got me this huge stuffed panda that is nearly half my size. Well... I have recently fallen in love with the newest little girl at the Atlanta Zoo. I watch her nearly everday, thanks to modern technology. Take a look at her!

She doesn't have a name yet. Due to Chinese tradition, it's good luck to wait until she is 100 days old. The zoo is having a naming ceremony on December 15, and you can watch online. I am SO excited!!!! Yes, I am obsessed and a little crazy.

Truck training is officially over with and I celebrated by going to the gym. Jumped on the elipitical for an hour and did some arms. My "I'm-in-training-so-my-body-is-super-toned-and-buffed" look is, sadly, going away. Lately, I haven't been very regimented about going to the gym. Better get my butt back into gear!!

gosh, this weather can make anyone crazy and is especially good for curling up on the couch and catching up on TIVO!

it's really been helping me now training for the turkey trot and then i may do the Jingle Bell Run in Birmingham on the 9th of December. I'll at least be working out up until then!

glad to hear your feeling well enough to jump on the elliptical!
