If you are what you eat....

......then I need to eat a skinny person. Stat.

Have I used that one before?

So I guess you\'re wondering who I am. I deserve that. I\'ve been gone for some time now....I think Jen has single handedly doubled our blog posts since late august when I think I last posted.

Let\'s face the facts. I\'ve been avoiding the blog like it was a bill collector.

I have had a busy last few months....I was going to say difficult but that's not true, it's just been busy. I've gained a considerable chunk of what I lost back. There. I admitted it. My reasons/excuses are as follows:


Mainly my heel/foot. Beginning in April I started having severe, and I mean severe, pains in my left heel. After months of writing it off as being associated with working on my feet I went to the doc. I had xrays done and an exam (which consisted of the dr feeling up my foot) he said I had plantar fasciitis, basically the muscle connecting the ball of my foot to my heel was improperly stretched. He referred me to a specialist and gave me a verdict of limited duty...stay off the foot unless necessary or surgery would be needed. So besides work I couldn't really do anything...not that I wanted to because the pain had gotten so bad. So one month later, in October, I saw the podiatrist...she had the same diagnosis, exercise induced plantar fasciitis. Same verdict but now I had a pretty back and blue foot brace which I was supposed to wear whenever I was home or asleep and shoe inserts and the directive to follow up in 6 weeks. I made the was supposed to be the 15th of this month...central booking screwed up and put me down for the 1st. So I wait for another appt. The pain has lessened but not enough to feel good walking on it. Other things wrong with me are back spasms and lower back pain..this could be brought on by the way I was favoring my foot and walking a different way, I wanted to ask the podiatrist before I saw my regular doctor again.

Over the last couple of months I've worked, on average 50 hours a week, with some weeks being much more. This is me, on my feet, walking between the camera and a kid for 12 hours each day. I get up at 3 in the morning, I get home at 4. Sometimes earlier but either way, I'm beat. I go to bed at 8:30 or 9 in the evening...I have very no time to cook breakfast, I'm gone for lunch and by the time I get home I have no desire to stand in the kitchen, we've resorted to eating out. A lot.

What do you get when you eat out and can't exercise? FAT.

So her I am, about to face the very real fact that the holiday ar coming and I could very well put on every last pound I lost this year by the time 2012 rolls around. (mmm....rolls)

So with that, I have a pre-new years eve resolution: maintain.

I'm deliberately not stating my weight...why ruin the holidays?! I'll let ya in on it, maybe, in the future.

So I'm back.
