My knee is still sore after dance rehearsals, but the brace with metal is really helping. However I probably won't try fencing again until next year.
I have a new fitness book called The 4-Hour Body, and I really love it. It's got a great diet plan that I can follow fairly easily. It was written by a guy who lives and works in silicon valley(read: geek like me). And his research is fascinating because he is able to be a third party observer to multiple industries: pharma, bodybuilding/fitness training, and medical. This means he only recommends things that work, that he has tested based on the combined research of these industries. This book should have been called "hack your body". The diet recommends one cheat day to reset leptin levels every 5 days. So I'm starting it now and my cheat day will be on Christmas.
I will turn 30 on Christmas day. Looking back part of me thinks that I will miss being "young", but a bigger part of me looks back and goes "wow, I fucking made it to 30!".
I am driving home for Christmas on Thursday night. It had better not snow until after I arrive. And then it had better be all melted by Monday morning.
I have just two more gifts to buy in order to finish my shopping. I also have to send off a card to my sister. But that's it, it was fairly easy this year. The wrapping however.....yeah not looking forward to that.
I'm thinking about having a birthday party sometime in early Feburary. Possibly in conjunction with Troy and Sarah. I can't remember the last time I had a birthday party.
