Happy Vernal Equinox!

Weight is hovering around 111ish; body fat is down to 13%.

I'm just checking in...I haven't been here in about a week. My last post was the beginning of my almost-two-weeks off from the hospital. :D I had / have lots planned before I have to go back to work...I don't plan on posting anything here until then...Have a great week, everyone!

Thanks, Karen! It's been fantastic!!! I soooooo needed this break from work! :D
I got some very nice relaxation in, as well as a couple of fun trips. I was also able to catch up on some things that I haven't had time for.

And for all of you wondering out there, I worked out regularly and kept my macros within range. Just because I haven't logged anything here, doesn't mean that I took the last few weeks off from working out and good nutrition. My workouts consisted of more strength-style yoga, plyometrics, and core work than ususual; I didn't have access to a gym, as I typically do when I travel. But you don't always need gym equipment to get a kick-@%% workout! :P

My weight this morning was 111.8 lbs. My progress photos and measurements seem to have me on track for where I want to be right now.

Have a wonderful day, everyone! I'll be back to posting my workouts/nutrition tomorrow (for today).
