D is for Doctor

O


So last week was a bust.  About 2 weeks ago I slipped and fell down the steps at my apartment. I was feeling better until a few days ago when the pain came back. I'm not sure if it's the weather where it's so cold or if I somehow aggravated it again. Needless to say I ended up at urgent care the pain got so bad. They really didn't do anything except give me some medication for pain and inflammation. It was worse the next day so I decided it was time for a visit to the chiropractor. So much for getting back into my workout routine this week. 

I used to go to the chiropractor regularly but havent been in years. Between my new injury and the places that were already messed up from a car accident years ago this is not going to be a quick fix. I have to go in to have adjustments 3 times a week for the next three weeks. Hopefully ill be cleared to do a light workout this week though. 

Despite not working out I can tell my clothes are fitting better. Even my underwear is loose, guess its time to go shopping. 

I'm so ready for this pain to go away. I want to work out. Hopefully ill get cleared for at least some lite activity when I go back today! 

Peace, Love and Happy Blogging

In Other "D" News....Dating




So I've been back in the dating world on and off for a year or so now. On again right much here lately and let me tell you it's CRAZY out there. I've had a lot of first dates that seemed great but led no where, a few bad dates, a few crazies and been stood up twice. Yep you guessed it I'm online dating.

Currently though there seems to have been a shift in the winds. Most recently I have gone out several times with the sweetest, most genuine guy. I'll call him tattoo guy. He is nothing like my usual type. He has a beard, is COVERED in tattoos and has that hipster kinda style for lack of a better description. He is also 9 years older than me. 

To be honest he is so far from my "type" I'm not even sure why I even responded in the first place. LOL. It's still super early but every moment has been a shocking surprise. It really seems like it might go somewhere past just a few dates. He defiantly isn't boring and is super intelligent which is nice and keeps me on my toes. 

It's still kinda weird though because he is so far from my typical type. I'm thinking this might just be a good thing though. I mean really where has my "type" gotten me this far....no wear but heartache. 

So here I am slightly confused and a little scared of being hurt... But along for the ride. The best part is he likes me for me. Who I am now, no act, just me. While he supports my journey he likes me for who I am now. This just makes me like him even more! 

Between my awesome job, awesome kid and now an awesome new guy in my life 2014 is going to be my year. Even if tattoo guy doesn't work out he shows me that there really are good guys left out there. 

Just some random thoughts and my two cents. :-)

Where to begin....

Warning I'm typing this on my phone... Lol




I'm so ready to get back on track but after taking pretty much almost two years off it's hard. I have realized that when I quit blogging I lost not only my accountability but also some motivation. The excuses have piled so high I can't count them. 

Going back into the work force 2 years ago was a huge struggle with my healthiness routines I had in place. Other people make it work while working though so yet again I was falling into the excuses trap. 2014 is my year to get back on track and make it happen! While I haven't gained all my weight back, I have put back on about 20lbs. Since I currently don't have a scale I'm going by my last weigh-in at the doctor a couple weeks ago. I sit somewhere around 192lbs and am wearing 14's mostly. Not my best but considering the lack of activity and most certainly a lack of good eating habits I wont complain. It's time to get back to taking care of ME though!

Other than taking care of my health (as far as food and activity) everything else for the most part in life is good. I have a job I LOVE in advertising sales, a new apartment back where I want to live and I am still blessed with awesome friends and family. Did I mention my job is awesome? I did...oh ok, yea I did, just checking. The good thing about my job is while I'm not technically exercising I'm getting in lots of activity. I have been wearing my fitbit almost all the time and most days I hit 10,000 steps. Most of my steps come  from walking back and forth to the copier on the other side of the office and walking outside on breaks( holding head down in shame...to smoke...still working on quitting I swear). It's a huge office and I work with some great people who are also trying to get healthier. I love working in such a positive environment.

Imagine if I actually constantly ate healthy and actually worked out!!!!

Honestly it's just a matter of getting out of the lazy zone and quit making excuses. No I'm not saying that negatively or to beat myself up, it's just reality. I KNOW I feel better when I eat healthy and work out, mentally and physically. :-)

Now for other "D" news....Stay tuned for another post.
