Insane abs and eyes

So, I haven't posted for a while. I never finished updating our May happenings. If you haven't seen me in a while, I am SURE you will notice 2 differences. First, J and I have been doing the Insanity diet and workouts (well, let's be honest, I have been doing the Insanity workouts. J has been doing the golf workout with occasional treadmill and Insanity workout). So, when you do see us next, I am sure that you will notice our INSANELY fit bodies. Here's a preview:

And, second, you will notice that I am no longer wearing glasses or contacts because I had Lasik at the end of May. It was actually not a pleasant experience and was much different than I thought it would be. I had PRK instead of Lasik because my corneas are too thin. But my doctor did not do a good job explaining the differences or the expectations. (I only found out that my corneas were too thin for traditional Lasik the day before the surgery.) He told me to expect blurriness for 2 weeks, not to drive for 4-5 days after the surgery, and a longer recovery time as far as "foreign object sensation" and scratchiness goes because we were working on the surface of the eye. That was an understatement. I was in so much pain from Wed-Sat morning. On Sat morning, the pain magically went away. I pretty much stayed in my room with the blinds, curtains, and a blanket over the windows and let J fend for the rest of the family (including feeding, clothing, running around, and taking H to urgent care for strep one night), all while he was trying to work from home. J was so great to me that I didn't say a word when we went golfing 3 times the next week. I emerged out of my room Saturday to a mound of dishes and a house that looked so light I thought we'd been transfigured (at least until I saw the mound of dishes).

My follow-up appointment was the next Tuesday, the doctor took the clear adhesive bandages off my corneas, and said they were healing nicely, but it took another 2 weeks before the blurriness went away. I'm still waiting for my "best" vision, which should occur around the 2-month post-surgery mark, at which time I will probably be seeing so well that I expect to be seeing through things, right?

I couldn't post updates without updating you all on the perfect condition of my eyes and muscles :)
