... but only one. Yesterday afternoon was the first time I was actually able to taste something. That was very exciting, and if I concentrated hard, I could sort-of taste my stir-fry last night - woohoo!. I'm coming good s-l-o-w-l-y, but its still all settled on my chest, and I'm still snotty - GERMS BE-GONE!
The great news is that we took Shavez to the vet yesterday afternoon, and his lump has turned out to be a Lipoma, which is a non-cancerous "fatty" tumour. Apparently they are quite common in older dogs, and not anything to worry about. There is no need to remove it either - so that is a huge relief!!
This morning my alarm went off at its "old" usual time of 4.50am - and I was like "Oh no - its not time already, is it?" Ha! Doesn't take long to get used to sleeping in! Anyway, I dragged myself out of bed, got ready in record time, and off to the gym - for the first time in about 6 weeks! The first 10 minutes were spent saying hello to everyone, and telling the ladies my engagement news. Its amazing the changes that happen in the gym in just a few weeks - lots of new posters on the wall, and lots of new faces in the gym too!
And man-oh-man, did I feel out of shape!!!! I got on the treadmill and set the incline on 10, and powerwalked for 30 minutes... and wow did my legs feel it! I even jogged for 5 minutes at the end, until I had to stop to blow my nose. Then I finished up with a good 10 minutes on a bike, followed by abs and stretching. Ouch that stretching hurt!
Anyway, it felt great to be finally doing something.... even though I certainly broke no records today. And the best thing is that I am HUNGRY today for the first time in ages... I cant wait to have lunch!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
