This morning my lovely helper came in with an adorable treat for me…

So, two things…

1.  You KNOW I LOVE personalized stuff…

Exhibit A: personalized key-chain- love it!

2.  I love what this says about ME (Jessica)!

So true I feel; Sets high goasl, loves a challenge, speaks openly and honestly.  What do you think/hear your name means?  Do share!

Catching My Breath and Catching You UP!

GOOOOOOD Friday everyone!  Wootwoot!  It has finally come (the weekend, that is)!  As you can assume (due to my blog-world absence), I have had a CRAZY week!  So, without further ado, let’s get started with a recap!

Sooo….Monday and Tuesday were pretty uneventful, but Wednesday was where the fun was to be had! 

First, I took a nice 8-mile river run.  I did it untimed becuase I was not really feeling it and I would say I walked about one of those miles along the way.  My belly was bothering me and I was just feelin tired, but becuase it was an out-and-back run, I had not choise but to complete.  So, I did, but boy was I spent!  Then, I headed over to the Rothman Institute to get my shoulder (and shin) checked out.  As you might remember, back in January, I went to have my shoulder and shin checked out.  Well, being the awful patient that I am, I did not exactly follow-up the way I should have.  Regarding my shin which we were worried might be stress-fractured, I did get off of it for a month. During that month, I did a lot of Cybex, Torture machine and swimming.

I eventually returned to running SLOWWWLY…

ANYWHOOOO with all of this running I have been doing, with Broad Street and whatnot, I seem to have aggravated both my shoulder and shin again.  So, Rothman Institute is where I found myself Wednesday.  Dr. Harwood is AWESOME and it is SOOO cool being inside the Eagles Prive Practive Nova Care Complex!  Here are some pictures I snuck (they ask for privacy, but clearly they did NOT mean bloggers, right?) LOL

Awesome view from my exam room

So, what’s the problem/prognosis you ask?  As for my shoulder, it is muscular but needs Physical Therapy twice weekly for 4-6 weeks.  As for my darn shin, I need to get a bone scan to rule out a bad stress fracture.  Bummer.  Will update you on that as soon as I can.  Anyway, it was a pretty cool experience and those people SURELY know what they are talking about!

Moving on to Thursday…the only news I have for you is this piece of deliciousness…

I just LOOOVE homemade pizza.  Sabrina talks about hers and certainly does it right!  My homemade pizza consists more of a store-bought crust (Boboli rocks) and my added toppings.  Hey, whatever works, right?  What is your favorite pizza type?  Delivery?  Homemade?  Do tell!  Happy Friday!  Toodles!
