Novemburrrrr

Went to the Dr for visit #2 yesterday -- went well. More popping and cracking and not-so-subtle jabs at my lack of butt muscles. Whatever he's been doing seems to work, my back is slowly getting better and I'm not in constant pain like before. I asked him if riding my bike would further injure my back... and as soon as he said no, I got excited to get back to being slightly active. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE laying around on the couch doing nothing just as much as the next girl, but when you HAVE to do it, it sucks. So...

Tonight I hopped on the road bike that's been taunting me on the trainer for the last two weeks and rode for an hour. We watched "Super Size Me" which quickly motivated me to ride an hour instead of my previously scheduled 20 minutes. I'm not a fan of McDonalds (it must be 10 years since my last McDonalds) but I enjoy the occasional Wendys. The movie was great, finally a movie that lived up to the hype. Very entertaining and enjoyable. Especially as I rode the trainer next to Chris on the rollers. Makes you feel like a very fit and skinny person. Score. No back pain during or after the ride -- I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Except...

It's freaking cold outside and currently snowing fairly hard (even though Chris scoffs at calling this a "storm"). I'm secretly doing my snow dance, but am not getting my hopes up. Some people hope for snow for the skiing. Others hope for snow for the beauty. I hope for snow for a snowday just as I have done for the past 19 years. Unfortunately, living in Colorado makes the "big wigs" resist EVER giving a snow day, as I've only had maybe 2 in my entire life. In conclusion...

I am not looking forward to scraping off the car in the morning (Scott -- that jab is intended for you, not because I really care, but mostly because I'm jealous that I'm not heading off to Hawaii). So cold in the mornings :( Especially with no mittens because Turbo ate one :( Want to send me to Hawaii yet? Damn. Can't say I didn't try...

[anyone notice that we were talking about transitions in writing today? Yes, I'm that cool]
