It was really tough week. I’m gonna leave it at that. I am thankful it is now the weekend and I have the chance to take a big breather.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. First day back since teaching. It was tough at times, but I was able to push through.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill, recumbent bike, light weights, floor strengthening, and the foam roller. You know the drill…
  • I saw my shrink on Wednesday. Much needed. Mental health is JUST as important as physical health. Always.

I feel like I just typed one of these! Please slow down, last bit of summer. PLEASE.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Two days after vacation. I felt EVERY bite of ice cream.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. A lot of treadmill, recumbent bike, and strengthening.
  • I saw Larry on Tuesday for OMM. Back, ribs, neck, jaw. You know the drill.
  • I was back in Indiana on Wednesday for another TMJ therapy appointment. My mouth appliance was adjusted, and I received my sleep study results. NO apnea so I do not have to do any more sleep stuff! Woohoo! It said I had, “very mild snoring at times.” The recommendation? “Patient appears to be obese. Encourage weight loss.” Wellllll, I do want to lose 5 pounds ; ) The next step is an ENT appointment to talk surgery to fix my deviated septum.

Happy August, friends! I have to admit, my reaction to August is always mixed; I know there is still more fun and relaxation to be had, but I also know that life will soon go back to the “fast” pace that is often hard for me as a zebra at the end of the month…Sooooo, I am working hard on living in the moment, and not projecting.  Easier said than done, but I am trying!

For the foundation, Gympalooza is coming up on August 23rd! You can check out the FREE event here:

Anyways,

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. The usual drill. Lots of cardio and strengthening and I ended with cranial OMM.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • Had my six month cleaning at the dentist. Still no cavities at 32. Trying to keep the streak going!
