We are back!!


We had the most wonderful, romantic anniversary!! I have many photos to share and I will try and post them in the next few days. As for now, we are busy trying to get ready for the movers to come and pack up everything as we are FINALLY moving back home to Texas! We are hoping to have our stuff shipped around the 12th of January and then we are leaving for the US the same week for a house hunting trip and for my husband to have some meetings in regards to his new position. We are also shipping our dog back with us on the same flight so we are trying to finalize all the necessary documents for him to leave Russia and to re-enter the US.

In terms of my program, I am doing well. I went to see a doctor on our visit and he confirmed what I had excepted, I have runners knee and in addition to that, behind my knee I have a baker's cyst. This was wonderful news because both are common not serious. I also have a strained ligament, in my right knee but again, it is nothing that ice and a few days of rest will not fix. I am taking some anti-inflammatories that he gave me and resting for a few more days before starting back slowly on the treadmill.

I will not be posting as much over the next few weeks because of all that we have going on, but I will try and post at least once a week my workouts and updates as to how I am doing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Blessings this new year to each of you!

Work hard, reach high!

Jen, so glad you had a fabulous time!! That is great news you are moving back to the US next month..didn't you think it was going to be March or something like that? Good news on your knee too. Take care through all the stress of moving! Glad to see you back! :) Happy New Year!

Thanks! Liz - I am looking forward to Cathes new release of STS soon, just in time for 2009!! Wish I was there to enjoy that Aussie heat over this Siberian cold!!!

Sandrelle - we did think that it would be more towards March! He will not start work officially until then but we are going to start moving our stuff now so that when he gets settled in at work we can already be in our new home!! I cannot wait - I want to GO NOW!!! :)

Looking forward to an eventful New Year leading up to a more healthy me! I look forward to sharing that journey with you as well. You are amazing JEN - Thank you for inspiring us all.

Stop by my garden to see what has been going on. I posted some fun photos from the garden this time of year.

Merry Christmas from my garden and soon I can say 'to yours'!

What a beautiful picture!

Congrats on your move back to the US! We'll be neighbors again. At least state wise that is. lol

I'm sure house hunting will be fun. Or, maybe it's just me who enjoys that. House Hunters on HGTV is my favorite show! lol

I'm glad to hear that your knee problems weren't too serious. Good luck getting back to your exercise routine.

Have a great New Year!

If you are an avid fitness walker or have been looking for [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]discount mbt shoes[/URL][/B] different weight loss methods, than I am sure you have heard of MBT shoes. Also known [B]MBT shoes[/B] as the anti-shoe, it is a range of footwear that helps improve posture, work [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] a lot of different muscle groups, and aids in burning more calories. But the biggest stumbling block [B]MBT shoes[/B] for most people when deciding to buy these shoes has [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] been its price tag of $255. Until recently, only the [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] affluent and wealthy could afford these sneakers. Now days though, you [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] can get the same quality styles for more than 40% of what people paid for [U]mbt sandals[/U] them just a year ago.

Buying MBT shoes on clearance is a great way [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] to save a bunch of money. Just because they are sold at [B]MBT shoes[/B] a discount does not mean it is an imitation or a damaged style. Most of the [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] models available at clearance prices are [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] just discontinued types that retailers have an abundance of, and are reasonably priced.

Receiving the anti-shoe at discounted prices is not something that takes very [B]discount mbt shoes[/B] long. However, one must implement some simple steps that will help you pinpoint your [B]MBT shoes[/B] selections. One thing you should do first and foremost is [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] to know your foot size. Go to any retailer and they will properly measure your width and length for [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] you or just use the chart yourself.

After you know your size, start looking on [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] line for some of the best places to buy MBT shoes on the Internet. On the first [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes cheap[/URL][/B] couple pages of Google, you'll find the best on line retailers that sell the anti-shoe, but try adding the words [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] clearance, discount, on sale to your normal search of "MBT shoes."


Retailers know that [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] they have to do what they can to stay in business during this economic meltdown. Some [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] people may shy away from MBT shoes clearance items, but most [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] will find these styles more than satisfying to meet their [B]discount mbt shoes[/B] fitness requirements as well as saving a substantial amount of money.
