No 10k For Me

It’s a bit of a bummer. Mostly because I psyched myself up so much for the Oak Apple Run 10k the beginning of June. However, my knees couldn’t handle the impact when I tried to run (emphasis on try). I was miserable even after the cortisone injections. So my options were to either continue with the running and kick myself out of the gym for a week (or longer) to recoup, or stick to the no/low impact workouts – I opted to stick to the no/low impact workouts.

I don’t think I failed. I have accomplished so much! I’m doing things I wasn’t able to do as a super morbidly obese person. Speaking of which, you may have notice my post on my Facebook wall: according to the BMI chart I’m considered “moderatly overweight”. Nikki told me a couple of weeks ago to not put any stock into the BMI chart, “The Rock is considered obese by that chart!”. Point taken. But…it’s sure nice to be out of that bucket.

Now what?

A week ago this past Friday I was promoted to Staff Accountant. Doug’s all excited. Every time we talk about my taking on more tasks his eyes get this funny look, like he just won the lottery. I will get to work on financials, which is totally cool (and a tad bit intimidating). Since this is considered a middle-management position (at least with our company) I am now a salaried employee, which means a new budget because salaried employees are paid every other week. BUT-no more time clock (SCORE!). I also get an assistant (OMGOMGOMGOMG!). The owner is placing an ad in the paper this weekend. Lord willing we’ll have someone decent hired and I’ll have them trained by the time my vacation comes.

Speaking of which…I’m DYING counting the days. I can’t wait to hug my friends. They’re all going to flip out!!

I picked up a devotional at Family Christian Stores. I really like it.

The Kensington women’s retreat is next month, the weekend of the 18th, at Spring Hill. I’m totally excited. Lisa and I are going to pal up and do the zip line. Knowing my luck I’ll get stuck halfway across because I’ll burst into a fit of laughter. I had such a wonderful time at last years retreat, God did some amazing stuff and I met some great women.

My pillows calleth.
