My trip part 2 lots of pics!

Before I get to my trip...I want to thank my GENIUS friend Emz for helping me solve the mystery of why people could not comment on my blog. 

Also I got a few questions about my diet and the restriction I have I did talk about it on a post a while ago it is right here
http://journeytoahalfmaraton.blogspot.com/2010/11/could-you-eat-same-thing-every-day.html

The short story is...my gallbladder was not working, I had surgery to have it removed.  It had been misdiagnosed for a while and I developed GERD because of it.  Some people are lucky and go back to a normal diet after surgery, some like me not so much.  I cannot eat FAT and anything spicy or acidic.  No alcohol either.  So a lot of good stuff is a big no no for me.  If I eat it, I get sick.  For several days.  No food is worth it so far.  I tried.  So I eat pretty much the same thing every single day.  It sucks but some people have it a lot worst then me and have to eat ensure all the time.  That diet made me loose a lot of weight,  I did need to loose weight but not 70 lbs!

I went running yesterday, 6 miles outside.  It felt a lot better then running inside and my sore throat is gone, I just cough now.  Today I had to rest, the kids gym is closed on Sunday and Bill left for the week this morning.  I called these trips vacation and he insist on calling them work trip.  Whatever.

GO MAVERICKS!!!!!!
Now only need the Canucks to win the Stanley Cup! (That is HOCKEY Chris)

Tomororw I officially start training for my next Half Marathon: The Disneyland Half Marathon!

I thought I would show my family.  They don't read my blog but I am sure they are OK with this!!!

Bill is my Mom's favorite...don't tell the others!!

The whole family on my side,

I love the family pictures! And such beautiful buildings. I'm sure you're treasuring every moment from your trip in your heart.

My husband is leaving for CA for a volleyball tournament with my 16 yr old. He's trying to make like his trip won't rock, but I'm not having any of it.

Your boys are a great age for you to do the Disney half :)
J'aime beaucoup tes photos de Québec! Pour les commentaires, si tu as de la difficulté à en laisser parfois, tu peux "downloader" Google Chrome...c'est un nouvel outil de recherche et Blogger fonctionne mieux lorsqu'on l'utilise. Moi je m'en sert juste lorsque je vais sur mon Blogue.

Bonne semaine!! :)

XLMIC said...

So fun to see your whole family :)

Your pictures have made me very curious about Quebec…now I want to go check it out!

I hear you on 'no food is worth it'…my diet isn't nearly as restrictive as yours, but there are some things many people consider staples that I cannot eat :(

Looking forward to running w/ you in LB…i just need to make sure I am fast enough to keep up :P

Very cute! And thanks for sharing the link about your diet. It must be very tough! I had to be on a very restricted diet a two times when nursing my last two kids. I did it for them but it was so hard but out of love for them.
