I was reminded today that I never updated everyone on whether or not I achieved my goals for January.
No trips to the emergency room for me--still don't walk like a supermodel but I'm getting better.... I didn't sign up for a yoga class but I did start back on the treadmill. I would like to run a 10K this summer and running increases my appetite so maybe I'll also gain weight. I didn't finish my paper but it's interesting how you can spend months looking at data and think it's all junk until you start writing what you think will be a negative paper. We now realize that if you interfere with the pain receptor we work with it is harmful if you look at survival during sepsis. The main reason this is so interesting is one of the drugs that we are using to interfere with the receptor is going to be used in the clinic (yippee, this is the goal of everyone at NIH) and we now know that special care needs to be taken to avoid sepsis in these patients. Unfortunately, I'm not sure why yet. I guess that's the next paper.
So, my goals for February (even though it's half over) is to be able to run a 10 minute mile, finish my paper and take a Zumba class.
