Hello Everyone!

Yes, I'm still alive. Thanks to those who have checked in on me because I haven't been posting in awhile. I've been busy getting back into my running groove. Gotta make use of those new runners. I am having problems though, just like I was before. It seems like once I get up to the point of doing 20-25k a week (besides my other activities) I start to have problems with energy. I feel weak, dizzy, tired, sore, and headachey. It's almost like the flu. I know what it is, it's because I'm anemic. My doctor did blood tests on me to confirm this, and I am on an iron supplement. It seems that the running is what is effecting this though. Does anyone else out there have this problem? Some of my research has shown me that it can be related to running. I'm wondering what I can do to fix this because I can't keep making myself sick like this from running, and I don't want to stop because it's my most favourite activity. I'm bored with using exercise machines, and I need that high intensity activity, so I'm not willing to just go for a walk or swim.

As far as the tummy tuck thing (someone asked for an update on that). It's kind of funny because I went into the plastic surgeon asking about coverage for my tummy tuck, and the doctor said that he could get a portion of costs covered (basically only hospital costs) but that he could fix my breasts for free. Excuse me? LOL! I wasn't even asking about my breasts, and I didn't know there was a problem there HAHAHAHHAH! Anyways, I updated my doctor on all of that the other day, and she was FURIOUS. I have never seen her so angry. She said "forget that, we will try someone else then...there is a medical reason for this". So, I guess my quest for a tummy tuck isn't over yet. I will leave it in my doctor's hands.

Today is haircut day! I haven't gone for one in 5 months. I will try to get hubby to take some pictures to share with you all :O)

As always, I will finish my post with a pictures of my beautiful little Missy. She is nekkid, so don't be shocked ;o) She is growing up to be such a pretty girl. Her fur is growing. I can't wait until it reaches the floor. She is now 8 months and 1 week old, and she had a growth spurt, she is now 3 lbs 6 ozs. I'm still hoping that she may reach 4 lbs, we will see! My little girl has healed up perfectly after her leg surgery and spay. The money we spent to fix her broken leg was definitely well worth it. She has healed 100% and can use it just like normal.

And one of her in her new Burberry overalls :O)

And showing off her new "Epik" dog boots. These are THE best dog boots I've seen. She is so comfortable in them.
