I know, I's been a while.....

Not even sure how long it's been since I last wrote - weeks?  Not much has been going on.  Dealing with crushing fatigue at times, I think some is the after effects of the surgery anesthesia, the rest?  I don't know.  I'm dealing with it by trying to push myself to go to the gym and walking the dogs on longer and longer walks.

I didn't keep up with the walking 1.5miles every day - I was so out of shape again after not doing a lot from surgery, it's taking me a while to build the endurance back up.  I do the long walks on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and manage to go about .75miles most mornings with the boys, provided they don't lolly-gag too much. 

I tried the new Turbo class last Wednesday night, also called 3G - Glutes, Guns & Guts.  I did interval on Thursday, and the new Power class on Friday.  Wed's Turbo really wore my glutes out, and my guns were shot by Friday.  Next week the interval class will be back on Tuesdays, so if I go to each of the classes I like, I will be at the gym Tuesday through Saturday most weeks, and still be walking 1.5miles a day on Saturday & Sunday, and .75miles Monday through Friday. 

We hit the farmers market Saturday - got some more butterbeans, crowder peas, and picked up 40lbs of sweet potatoes for $10.  Got the beans and peas canned, and Momma Clydie will be working on the sweet potatoes a little at a time during the week.    And I don't know if I mentioned this before, but the food saver that I bought back in the late spring - that was the best $50 I think I have ever spent.  We have a small chest freezer that is chock full of veggies and sliced peaches, sealed up courtesy of the food saver.  It comes in handy when we buy bulk meat and separate it into normal meal-sized portions.  So much better to buy in bulk for that stuff!

I am starting to get really excited - my hubby will be home soon!!!  I cannot wait until he gets home!!!
