Well, my back is still feeling great since the surgery about 4 years ago, but my hip is now starting to bother me:-( I went to the doc the other day and we are going to start over with a new bone density scan and go from there. She seems concerned that I have osteoporosis at such a young age and is determined to figure out what's going on!
Once again, it's an eye opener that I need to work on my health. Ugh.....a battle I seem to face often! I have put on about 30 pounds since my surgery and have NO reason other than my own laziness. I make excuses each week as to why I don't have time to work out.....school....Thomas....I am too tired....I deserve a break...etc.... My sister said something to me today that made a lot of sense. I need to put my health 1st on my priority list....and all of my other "to-do's" will still get done. That's so true.
Starting today, I am going to make an effort to get back on track.
Blogging helps me with my reliability. I can look back and see how I have done, etc...
I hope that the doctor comes back with good news....and that nothing is terribly wrong with me. I would hate for it to be too late:-(
I will get back into blogging and post my progress:-)
I put in my notice at my job that I have been at for over 7 years. I have so many feelings running through my head....but the strongest feeling is excitement!!! I am leaving work to go to school full time. Focusing on school to pursue my career is what's most important right now!! The schedule that I was going to have working full time, going to school and still trying to be around for Thomas....just wasn't going to cut it...and Thomas and my school work would suffer.
I am so excited to take this new journey in life! I haven't "not" had a job in a really long time...and that what scares me the most....but once I get use to it I will love being a full-time student and Mama:-)
Lots of changes in the horizon.....and I am going for it!!!! Can't wait!!!!
I have slipped back into my old habits once again:-( I must pick my feet up and keep on trucking!! I can't let it get me down....we all fall and must get back up again more than once in life right?
I am going to attempt to start making changes next week! I think Spring Break is a perfect time to get going:-) The weather is getting nicer....so I can get out in the yard and do something things....clean out closets....put up winter clothes....etc:-)
Sat evening after school I am going to sit down and plan a week of healthy breakfast/lunch/suppers and go shopping.....then prepare what I can for the week. Since I have been in school Thomas and I have been eating out WAY too much. I enjoy sitting down and having supper with my family every night. It's very important to me....and just because I am busy with school doesn't mean I can't still make it happen...and have something healthy:-)
I must start working out again! I do good for a while...then I don't work out at all....UGH! I have to find the determination to keep going...every week...and just make it part of my regular routine...no matter how busy I am...I have 30 minutes a day to work out....I mean come on now....really?? I am good at making excuses though!!
Those are the main things that I want to start focusing on next week......Will post more about it as I do it!!! MOTIVATION is needed....where can I find it? lol
