Writing, Wall-E Tails and My Weighty Story: When Life shows you the break peddle.

Writing, Wall-E Tails and My Weighty Story: When Life shows you the break peddle.

Hello everyone. I know I’ve been MAJORLY MIA lately. I want to apologize.

My back blew in massive proportions and I have been OUT since. I’ve returned to work this week, but by the time I get home, I am hurting, so I take the heavier medications they gave me for my back, and well then I’m unable to really do much else. I went to the doctor and they are referring me to a pain specialist. The good news is that they do NOT believe that its spinal and that it’s muscular. They have a couple of ideas of what is the cause, but they want the specialist to take a look at it to determine for sure.

The only bit of good news is that I have lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING IT THE WAY I DID HOWEVER. DO NOT DO IT THE SAME WAY! ABORT! ABORT! To feel the instant difference in my clothes though was kind of amazing. However, since I’m having to be easy on the stomach in this process, I’m just going to keep with the easy foods and the healthy run.

Run… /lesigh. I did get signed up for Wharf to Wharf this year with my family, but depending on what happens with the specialist with my back, I may not be able to train or walk the event this year. I’m really worried about it. Now I do have until the end of July to get ready, but so much of it will depend on what happens. I’ll keep you updated as I find out.

MAN I really miss this community, and I hope to fully return once I know more.

With much love.

The Five Angels Update

The Five Angels Update

I’m doing a bit of a happy dance right now.

This is what I saw on Monday night.

That means that I finished the edits of the first book!

WHOO WOO!!!

Now to get them all in the computer.

That will take me a little bit though, due to the addition of studying to my schedule.  Mom is also having back surgery on Wednesday (the day this is scheduled to post) so that will put a little extra crunch in the time frame.

Hope everyone is having a great time and I hope to catch up with everyone soon!

I’m reading too. One book that I highly recommend is:

again, I need to get ready. I want to best my time from last year, and hopefully I’ll be able to smash it into a bunch of little pieces. I’m doing alright, but I have a long way to go. The program he gave me is intense, and aggressive, but I’m doing it, and since I have a few extra weeks, I can stretch it out a little bit. I’m still concerned about overheating as I don’t “cool down” (read sweat like a pig ) like normal people do, so I’m open to ideas on how I can help combat that. Oh! and I just got some new amazing shoes.

( Newton – Aha )

 

These are amazing! They are so comfortable, and I can feel a difference in my form already! Totally worth the money. Every single penny. If you are a runner, or want to get into running, try these shoes out. (No Newton isn’t paying me for my opinion.)

oh… and I’ve started the process for obtaining my Salespersons license. It’s related to my new job, and basically it entails taking 3 classes and a state mandated exam. I want to finish the classes within 3 months and get scheduled for the exam in July. Basically that means I’m having to do lots of studying and obviously that takes a lot of time.

So yes. Time is an issue.

So down to it… blog changes

I will have to cut my blog down to just one post a week, instead of my historic three (well that is until recently). If I can do more, of course, I will, but at this time I can only commit to one post a week for now.

There will still be Wall-E Tails, Author updates, and My Weighty Story. They just won’t be a every week occurrence … for now. Maybe once my classes are done, I will be able to return to my original programing. I just can’t right now.

My love to everyone, and I will see you next week!

My Weighty Story: FINALLY AN UPDATE!

My Weighty Story: FINALLY AN UPDATE!

Hello everyone.

This is going to be a really quick update.

I am LOVING my new job. I’m challenged, the people are amazing and get this … they are doing a “Biggest Loser” competition in the office! What an awesome way to stay motivated!

Well I’ve been here three weeks now … and guess what…

I’VE LOST A TOTAL OF 8 POUNDS!!!!

/ happy dance!

I’m walking during some of my lunches, and want to get to the point where I’m walking every lunch. Plus, this weekend I’ll be registering myself and the family for the Wharf to Wharf again this year. Very excited about that.

I have a goal of losing 20 pounds by my birthday, which is about the time the office biggest loser challenge finishes. I’m hoping for more, but 20 pounds I think is more than reasonable.

What are your current plans for getting the weight off for the summer?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
