Tonight I am taking my niece Olivia to see Jack Hanna’s live animal show for her Birthday. :D
So last night? Of course I had to have an anxiety dream about it!! :P We were at the show, having a grand ol’ time and then I dozed off during a speech about lizards. Then I woke up in my own bed. (In the dream…still dreaming here.) So I was like “OH MY GOSH! What happened to Liv? Did I take her home? Did I leave her there? How did I get home?” And I was scared to call my sister to see if Olivia was there…for obvious reasons. ;)
Then I woke up, quite relieved that today was Friday and I hadn’t misplaced my 9 year old niece in downtown Wichita.
Can’t wait for tonight and not losing her! haha
I didn’t end up going to Muscle Pump tonight because during Turbo Kick I developed a spasm in my lower back/left side that had me gritting my teeth. I could hardly lift my left leg by the end of the class.
Soooo I decided to call it a night! I know my joints and muscles are just tender and sensitive from the adjustment yesterday. I came home from the gym, popped some ibuprofen, took the dogs for a long enough walk to bring them a little joy and now I’m icing it up on the couch watching Gilmore Girls.
That seems a little rude to me….not much of a “gift card” if it expires after a week, right?
But, I did the obvious thing and hurried over to the website to order these capris -
Got em for 10 bucks after my ZIN discount and “gift card!” :D
marathonmelissa said: I had a dream last night that had you and Jeremy in it. I just remember that I was at your house (or what I dreamt was your house?) and we were hanging out. The dogs were all there. And you were going to take me to a Zumba class (of which I was deeply afraid of). Some guy I was with (I have no idea who he was!) went with Jeremy to go to "man stuff". And then I woke up. So random! But maybe that's why the dogs were restless? They were in my dreams! :) Have a good Thursday!
hahaha! Yesssss I love this. That has to be why Cubby was staring at me. He wanted to know - who was that guy you brought with you!?
Don’t be afraid of Zumba, Melissa! Come to the dancey side. ;)
Self-sabotage is knowing exactly what you need to do to improve but not doing it. It’s procrastinating doing the very things that you know will make you happier. It’s waiting till things are 100% perfect till you do them, but that of course never happens. It’s remaining in the comfort zone because of the fear of failure or uneasiness of change. It’s a mindset that you may be completely unaware of until you really think about it. So think about it. Are you a prisoner of your own thoughts? If you are, take responsibility and acknowledge you put yourself into that prison. But know that you have the power to free yourself.

Yes. Now you know my secret pain. LOL
MoJo pics always get a better response than other things I post…but THIS DARN PICTURE
has taken over my notes. I can never see anything anyone has said to me unless I go directly to my most recent posts and check for comments. I love my dog, but it’s really quite annoying!
The funniest thing is, I didn’t even take the picture! Jeremy took it and sent it in a text one afternoon while I was at work. So I’m constantly updating him on the popularity of his photo. It died down for a week or two, but now it’s blown up again and got over 1000 notes in one day. CRAZY TUMBLR PEOPLE! :)
Why did I wait so long to go see my chiropractor???? Good grief! I felt INSTANT relief in my left hip when he did the adjustment. Turns out, my hips were completely out of alignment, causing my left leg to actually be longer than my right! :-0 He thinks this was the “aggravator,” not a disc problem. Thank goodness.
Anyway, it’s probably too soon to tell much and I don’t want to jinx myself, but I can’t find any sciatic pain in my left leg anymore!!! I have DOMS that are making it a little hard to tell and I’m naturally sore from the adjustment, but the deep deep deep never ending burning tushy pain isn’t there!
He suggested icing my lower back & hip flexor after workouts and to keep stretching. (He was surprised at my flexibility. And while wearing jeans, might I add! Hehe) He said I’d only need to come back if the discomfort returns. I like him a lot, he doesn’t try to talk you into extra appointments unless you need them.
Anyway, fingers crossed that THIS IS THE FIX!!!!!
