I have to do what??

The day has finally arrived for my checkup! I went to my GP and talked her up about my foot and my stomach. She promptly gave me lots of papers and lots of different doctors numbers and places to go. My list that I'm hoping to complete in the next month:
  • Get my bloodwork done checking my liver, kidneys, sugar, cholesterol and thyroid.
  • Get both of my feet and akles x-rayed.  Based on these I might be going to a specilist afterwards
  • And lastly...go to a GI specialist to figure out what is with my stomach.  We're guessing that my issues are mostly stress related, but just want to make sure it's nothing more serious.
Needless to say I was a little down when I got home, but then I saw this face and it cheered me up.

For dinner we had a pasta and turkey sausage bake. This is one of my favorite things to have for dinner. I mean I am 50% Italian. 

The recipe was pretty simple. First I cooked some whole wheat pasta according to the box instructions. I made enough for 4 servings so we could have leftovers.  I then chopped up 1/2 an onion and 2 cloves of garlic and threw them in a skillet with 3 links of italian turkey sausage (casings removed and cut into bite sized peices).  When the sausage had cooked through I added 1 15oz can of chopped tomatoes along with a sprinkle of dried oregano and basil.  I then put the cover on the skillet and simmered the dish for 15 minutes.  Then I added the pasta to the skiller, mixed, poured in a serving dish and sprinkled mozzerella cheese on top.  Delish!

After I finished dinner I had one of these bad boys for dessert:

It was nice having a day of rest from woking out. I think my body needed it! I just went on a quick walk around the neighborhood with Champ and two best guys. Here's to hoping this week flies by!!
