Surgery and new phones

How in the heck is today Wednesday?? Short weeks always throw me off, why can't all holidays be on Fridays? That would work out better for me.
I spent Labor Day sweating, I talked my BFF into doing a 10k with me {her first one!} and it soooo HOT and HILLY.

She did great even though I'm sure she was cussing me when we were trekking up those damn mountains they call hills. Hey, we are Texas girls, we like our flat roads thankyouverymuch.

Yesterday I went for my appt with the general surgeon, if you follow me on Instagram you probably already know this, but I have to have surgery next Friday. Apparently I have a huge cyst that goes from my ribs to my hip bone, ewwww. They are going to try to remove it laparoscopicly, but if they find evidence of a tumor or can't get it out they will have to cut me open.
Surgery to me means two things= $$$ and no working out.
As long as they don't cut me open I should be good to go in a few days. {Praying} I don't do well 'resting'. Even after my csection I asked for them to take out my tubes and I was up cleaning the hospital room, I know I'm crazy.
When I'm stressed I clean.

The Dr I met was awesome, seriously like the nicest guy ever. He asked me about my weight loss and was amazed when I told him how I lost it, running and eating right. He shook my hand like I was  some celebrity and told me it was nice to see someone doing it the right way. 
We spent a good 20 minutes talking about running :)

I start getting the fall itch when Labor Day rolls around, but it was freaking 102 yesterday. Killmenow.
So, I guess I'll be sporting my summer clothes for a little while longer.

Like this cute top I got for 5 bucks at Target.

I'm also ready for Apple to bring out their new phone already. Usually I'm not one to get all giddy about a new phone, but the microphone on mine has been broken for months.  I can only talk on speaker phone, which makes it really hard to fight with your husband while in a store :)

This was my Dad's solution, they seriously sell this at Wal Mart. Who would really walk around talking on a giant blue phone? Well, besides Miss M.
I decided to make the switch from Droid to the iPhone so I can sync my computer to it and I've heard they are enlarging the screen which was my major compliant about the old ones. 
Hopefully they stick to the Sept 21st plan!

That's all my randomness for today, I need to get a move on a make Miss M's lunch {my first time!} for her first day of Preschool! 
I need to have her picture ready before I leave because I have to been in class before she starts and I can't trust my husband to get decent shots. Men take 1 maybe 2 and call it a day :)

Happy Hump Day!


  1. I hope your surgery goes well, I'll be thinking about you!!

  2. We'll all be praying for you! :)

    You look absolutely fantastic! I LOVE shopping Target's clearance rack. They seem to have pretty high quality stuff for cheap!

  3. Good Luck with your surgery Megan! You are a celebrity too, seriously you should never forget how much you have accomplished even during the times when you feel stuck in your weight loss! You are awesome!!! Not many people can say they have done what you did!

  4. Love the top - why can't I ever find things like that on sale?
    Hopefully the surgery will be a quick and smooth one. When I got the laparoscopy I think I felt better after a few days.

  5. You are too precious. Your hair looks fantastic! Will be thinking about you this week and hope that your surgery goes well. And in the post work out pic - your clothes are falling off! You are looking tiny.

  6. Poor baby! Surgery is the last thing a super energy, move 'em kinda Texas gal needs. Just wrap your brain around healing and know that you will be moving sooner if you follow docs orders to take it easy.

    Love your running outfit. My curse is my love of workout clothes. I even coordinate my sweat towel with my outfit. Living in the land of Nike - Oregon - cute workout clothes are everywhere. Expensive - but they last forever.

    Keep us posted!

  7. so my laceration and staples don't compare to a big ol cyst, BUT i know how you feel about the forced rest- i am so sad right now and miss walking and biking and hate sitting on my duff. it's no fun. :( BUT if i want to heal properly and be back at it with no repercussions, it's necessary, and i know that, even though right now it blows.
    and i am glad your dr was proud of you- what you have accomplished is hugely inspiring-- in a world where people pop pills and go under the knife to lose weight, it's awesome when someone does it the NATURAL and right way. :)

  8. Well we beat you...105 here yesterday. Gross! And yes, that top is adorable! Must see if we still have any. Praying that your surgery will be successful and as un-invasive as possible!

  9. Good luck with the surgery. I hope everything goes well and they can take care of it laproscopically - then you can bounce back quick. And switching from a Droid to an iPhone - you wont regret it! (Since a Drioid is a wanna-be-iPhone anyway!) I am so ready for Fall weather too - I want to wear sweaters already but it's still 80s-90s here!

  10. Oh dang Megan! That doesn't sound like fun. It is good you like your doctor, nothing like a personable doctor, they are hard to come by these days. You sure do rock the running, I HATE hills, thank God I am not your best friend. I can't believe Miss M is going to preschool, how fun for her. I am sure she will have a blast. My daughter Tiffany is waiting for the new phone too, so she is using my old iPhone since hers broke and says it is the worst. But hey, I am not the one who bought a waterproof iPhone case and went underwater in Hawaii...yeah evidently they don't work.

  11. Wishing you a speedy recovery from your surgery, and hope it goes well.
    I too am excited about the IPhone...can't wait!!!

  12. Bummer about the surgery! I'll cross my fingers that they can doing it without the big cut. Good luck friend :)

  13. I hope your surgery goes well without having to open you up. Hopefully this will solve your problem being about to have babies.

  14. Was that run in McKinney? If so, I was there - and it was super hot and super hilly! Doing the Halloween hustle 15k there in October. I'm going to run the course a couple of times just to make it through all of those crazy hills!!

  15. Best of luck on your surgery! Sorry you have to go through this though. :(
    I love your top for Target! Hello cuteness!

  16. Just found your blog and read back a few pages... just wanted to say you are one of the cutest and handiest people I've read blogs of!!! I hope everything goes well with your health, good vibes your way!


Make my day and leave me a love note!
