So, I apologize for not posting in a while. Things have been CRAZY…extremely busy. I’ve been continuously working out in the mornings followed by reiki, acupuncture, and massages at night. Other nights I’ve been doing maintenance type workouts and some cardio. I’ve also been completely rearranging my condo, so that’s been a task of its own, but I’m happy with how things are going. I can’t wait to do up my balcony so it’s ready for the summer!
Unfortunately I’ve hit a snag… luckily it’s not the snag I thought it was.
On Sunday I went and did “the stairs” work out (128 ridiculous stone steps that are on an insane incline and all the steps are sized differently). On my way home I got an excruciating pain in my mid back, to the right side. I was also have an increasing horrible pain in my lower right stomach. I thought for sure I had jacked up my back but the more I talked to people they felt it was my appendix. I drove myself to the emergency room and after a few hours of being there, flirting with the CT Techs, and hangin out watching Old School, turns out I only have a kidney stone. The next day I followed up with a specialist b/c they saw some abnormalities in my appendix, but all was good. The stone is pushing up against my appendix which is causing some issues, but it’s getting better each day. Unfortunately I found out that I have a 2nd kidney stone just chillin in my kidney! I’m going to do some herbal treatments that should break it up.
It’s a small set back, but I can’t wait to get back to working out and as I stated before, this is about the long haul. So I’ll get back on it and keep going without ever looking back.
Other than that, everything else is going fabulous. A lot of the reason I started this blog was to get things out in the open, a way to deal with things and figure everything out. Unexpectedly someone has come in to my life who I feel I can open up to. I’m being smart this time around, but it’s nice to have someone around that I can confide in as well as someone who can give me shit if I start to waver in my thoughts. I’ve been pretty open about the reason I started this whole journey, so it’s nice to have someone in my life who supports me and genuinely wants me to succeed and who respects what it is I’m doing. There’s been a lot of people supporting me on all of this and I love them all for that. I can’t wait to get back on track and keep going.
No matter what life throws at you, I promise it can get worse. Take things in stride, deal with them properly, and then get back to work. There’s nothing you can’t deal with if you put your heart and soul in to it.
I hope everyone has been having beautiful and peaceful days, we all deserve it. If you’re not, step back, evaluate and make the changes you need to get there.
