Catching Up

by Brittany on December 28, 2013

Wow….it’s been a while! This is the longest break I’ve taken from the blog since I started it over a year ago. We have some catching up to do.

Gallbladder Surgery

Last week I had my gallbladder removed. I must admit I totally underestimated the recovery. Everyone told me it would be so easy and it was such a simple procedure. Everyone was wrong. The five days succeeding my operation were the most painful and uncomfortable I’ve ever experienced. That being said, it was a quick recovery because on the sixth day I woke up feeling like a new person. Fast and furious for sure.


Lucky for me that sixth day just so happened to be Christmas Eve. I was able to shower, get dressed, visit with family and even eat real food.

{I took it easy on the cookies to save room for the Date Nut Roll – another Christmas favorite}



{How cute?  It tasted good too!}




One of my December goals was to land a personal training job. I reached out to just about every gym in the area and even offered to work for free to gain experience. I went on one interview already, turned down one, and have two lined up. One of them is even with my top choice. Fingers crossed!!!!!

As far as my training goes, I have 3 more weeks of lifting restrictions ahead of me. I intend to do a lot of walking and maybe some yoga when it feels comfortable again to stretch. Other than that I will be taking it easy and enjoying my down time.

So, that’s what’s been going on with me!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I can’t wait to catch up on my favorite blogs. Off to do that now!
