This picture tells a story. The story of a girl who has to start over. Who has to rebuild what was lost. It’s crazy how only two weeks away changes you.
I had to stop a few times. I didn’t have control of my breathing once throughout the workout. I got a little sick to my stomach if I’m telling the truth.
But I know it can only get better. I’m determined to get it all back. The journey is not over.
A quiet breakfast while watching Nashville. Bagel and grapes and of course water
Confession: I am beyond frustrated with my body on any given day
However, as frustrated as I am with it, I will always be thankful for it. It’s the body that’s carried me through a lot of stuff.
It’s in this body that I had my kids. It’s in this body I almost died but didn’t. It’s in this body I ran a 5k. I’m this body I walked a 10k. In this body I started going to Zumba and Body Combat.
It’s this body that became a Zumba Instructor.
My gym ban is over. Two very long weeks has come and gone and I’m ready to step back in the gym and take classes.
In the picture below are just some of the people I am thankful for and who came into my life because of the gym.
I may feel like I’m starting back at step one and modifiers will be my unwelcome friend. However, I’m just thankful I get to go back and do what I truly love to do.
One last Saturday banned from the gym but at least it’s glorious outside
Had breakfast with some amazing friends who I love dearly
Then it was off to an early Thanksgiving dinner
Love my family
Now I’m home relaxing and enjoying some quiet time
😳 I thought today was Thursday…..thus the last post.
I think time for me right now is a little wibbly wobbly timey wimey

So I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for a bit, I’ve really been struggling with my journey right now. The gym ban has affected my mood and my psyche and my attitude.
I’m allowed back come Tuesday and I can’t wait. I just have to make it til then.
A little throwback fun to my super model days 😉
Lunchtime. I love my lunch bag it keeps it all fresh 😉
Of course so does the fridge I put it in lol 😂
Confession: I barely made it but one week of rest has been done
I spent the last week miserable and grumpy and feeling like a sloth.
But today starts my favorite month of fall; October. Not too hot, some crisp morning weather. Sweaters. Hot Chocolate. Hot tea. Amazing time of the year
It’s the tail end of the year and soon it will be time to reflect and reminiscence about the year gone by.
However, it’s not time for that yet. I’m working my way out of this dark mood I’ve been in since the injury and I decided I needed a distraction; so I’m going to take this on
Keep an eye on my Instagram account for the pics to follow all month long.
My focus this month is to find more focus.
Still no gym for another week.
So this guy and I spent the day together
He bought me lunch with our lotto winnings
We couldn’t decide what was cooler…
The giant pumpkin
Or the giant LEGO guy
Saw some cuteness
Had some supper
Picked up a kid
Now I’m watching Nashville
For the first time in my life I let a total stranger touch me (besides doctors)
I had my very first massage therapy appointment today to help me with my hip injury.
I was super nervous about it but the room was small and quiet and dimly lit with soft instrumental music playing. More spa like than physio.
Jessica was RMT today and she was lovely we had a 20 mom chat about how active I am and about how the pain started.
Then it was time to drop my pants lol and get on the table laying on my stomach. The bedding was super soft and the table was heated. It was cozy and I put my head in that headrest thing until I realized it would ruin my hair lol. I think I’ll use a pillow next time.
As far as the massage went it was great and painful and relaxing all at once. I felt relief in my hip as she manipulated around the area. Jessica was sweet, keep up conversation with me when I talked and just went about her business.
I have a follow up next week. A girl could get used to this 😁
