How many points in 2 bottles of barium?

Yes, I went MIA for way too long.

Things have been wacky in my world the past couple weeks. I bought a new vehicle, my best friend's mother died, I got a raise, I had severe abdominal pains and today I had my very first CT scan! Let me just say, the barium isn't sitting so well for me this evening. I am not so much HappyBlogChick as GassyBlogChick at the moment. I haven't a clue what the abdominal pain is all about - it is fine this week but last week was a nightmare. I'll keep you all posted and you'll know soon after I know.

So anyway, I apologize for being out of touch. Everything got a bit overwhelming and I had to take blogging off the list for a while.

I hope all of you are doing fabulously on your weight loss and fitness journeys.

As far as my exercise and weight goes, I stalled on the running last week completely, and maybe part of the week before that ... it's all running together (so to speak. Or should I say all NOT running together? Anyway...). But I'm back at it this week - I ran Monday, I ran Wednesday, and I will run Saturday. My couch to 5k schedule is all whacked, but I'm up to running 28 minutes. Unless something gets in the way, I'm still doing the 5k on April 19th.

Weight-wise I'm maintaining. I've had a day or two when my weight bobbed up into the above 134 danger zone, but only a couple times. I'll update my weight tracker soon and you can see for yourself.

Chances are in the next couple days I'm going to hit everyone's most recent posts and get caught up at least a little. And I will try to post again before too much time passes - really! I will!

Hello!

I'm sorry to hear you've had sort of a roller-coaster few weeks, but I'm glad you're back! My RL too has been encroaching on my bloglife, although thankfully not my healthy lifestyle efforts. You're awesome for getting through all of that unscathed, and I hope the pain stays away for good!

7 days until the 5k, huh? YOU CAN DO IT! I'll be thinking of you.

Take care!

No matter what's going on in your busy life, you still write with a twist of humor. I love it! And here's another (((big hug))) in the mean time.

P.S. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you on the 5K run.

Hope things turn out ok with the scan and stay strong with the workouts they can help with some of the stress of life.

Ooh, so glad you're back! I missed you tons...

Sounds like things were very crazy. I'm glad you've gotten a bit more settled and I hope your CT scan shows everything right where it should be and no problems at all.

Welcome back!

Glad you're back but sorry that the absence has been due to feeling yucky.

Hope you're feeling better. We need you running ahead us of so that we can catch up!

Welcome back to the blog world. It sounds like you have had a stressful time lately. I hope things get better soon! The CT scan does not sounds like fun. Feel better soon!
