My thyroid test came out normal. My regular doc and nurse have not confirmed this in detail yet, but essentially, a nurse at the office looked at the report and unofficially said it looked normal.
What does that mean to me?

That means that I am on this journey. My life, my body, my mind, and my heart are being transformed. There is not a moment wasted. I press on. If my body is functioning within normal limits then I am to just keep doing what God has called me to do.

Tomorrow I get on my bike for another 15mile ride. I am not sure where I am going to ride yet because during the week, all the traffic is a little heavier, even if I am riding on a bike path. But one of the things I get to practice tomorrow is something I struggle with... getting on and off the bike.

My friend Jim who owns Cycle Metrix adjusted my bike to better fit me today and he gave me some pointers on my "mount and dismount" techniques. But, just like anything else, I won't get better if I don't practice.

The bummer of it is, if I have to get off the bike, it is because there are people there... watching. Then, I have to get back on the bike. OK, so you get the picture. I guess I could have posted the picture of the hash marks on the back of my leg too... then you would really have the PICTURE. They are healing nicely now. I have no desire to pester them with another unfortunate dismount.

I will get in the lake on Thursday. For the first time to have a real lake swim. I am freaked out about that too. But that is a whole 36or so hours away... we'll talk about that tomorrow... ;)

  1. I am praying for you in all this, Jennifer! Keep going, you awesome gal! You inspire me so much! But...I don't think anything could get me in that lake :) Teasing. I know you'll do great.
