Well it turns out I don't have laryngitis but need to have throat surgery again.

With the miracle of in office laser surgery I've held it off going into full surgery for 2 years so I guess I cannot complain (too much).

Still annoying, though.

On other news:

I joined a gym in September and have been faithfully working out. I took advantage of hiring a trainer when I first joined as it's half the original training cost when you first join.

Best. Decision. Ever.

Twice a week she runs me through a gambit of exercises while she keeps an eagle eye on my form as I'm sweating my way through the routines. I have learned so much from her. It's not just added motivation to work harder while someone is watching you--it's doing the exercises correctly so your muscles get the most benefit.

Working out with her makes the time go by quickly. Sometimes I think, "Did I do enough to make a difference? Did I get a good enough work out?" My answer is in the wobble in my legs as I make my way back to my car and the aches and pains the next day from the millions of muscles she made come alive.

It's also in the inches I've lost since joining.

Best investment ever, Peeps.

An investment in my health, worth every sweaty penny.
