Yup - you heard it right. I am a size L. Not an XL, not an XXL or XXXL, but a just plain L.

I was at Old Navy on Saturday, and I tried on a pair of sweatpants. They were L. I actually ended up buying the XL because I figured they would shrink, but the point is I got into a size L and they fit just fine. The compression pants I bought were a L.

I am feeling pretty good today. I am wearing a size 14 jeans (misses size not women's) a Junior XL shirt, and a 38D bra. I don't think I have worn those sizes for 10 or more years. In fact, I know it has been longer than that. More like 12 years.

I got on the scales today and lost a little over 3 pounds. I was also very pleased with that. I have been working very hard.

I think I may go later this week and book a personal trainer at the gym. I think it is time.

Well, that is all for now

    Congratulations!!! Great job on the weight loss and especially getting down into a smaller size. I don't think there's a better feeling in this journey than to go down in sizes!! Keep up the good work Cortney!!!

    emoticon So happy to hear that you are ready to push harder with a personal trainer. You are going to do great!

Nothing gets you during weight loss like clothes shopping. I actually have one or two items that are a Large, but I'm still mostly in XL. It's going to happen though :)

... and a choir of angels began to sing...

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Seriously... that is how I felt after the Chiropractor today. I am pretty sure the heavens and earth were in perfect harmony. My ribs are back where they should be, and everything is right with the world. I would venture to say that it was the best thing I have felt in a long time (no offense to my boyfriend)

I decided to go workout before I went, which was a good idea, but when I got there I was sweaty and nasty. I did apologize to the Doc and told him where I had been. He understood, or so he said.

Saturday, my co-worker is getting married, so, I have to go to that. I am not a real big fan of weddings, but you know how that goes. Then I am working extra. I am hoping on Sunday to get a bike ride in and get laundry done. I hate to say this, but the laundry is the most important thing. I won't have clean undies otherwise.

I think that is all

    I'm glad to hear you've recovered and feel even better after the chiropractor visit. It sounds like you are back on track. I have thought about visiting a chiropractor myself, but financially it's not an option right now. Heck, even a back massage would do!

Crappy Park Trip

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Well... Hershey Park was a disaster. I loved riding the rides, and it was an awesome day weather wise... but I got really sick. It wasn't motion sickness either. I was drenched in sweat, my stomach felt on fire, I was light headed and shaky... I don't know what could have caused it.

I felt so horrible I let my boyfriend drive my Jeep home. I told my mom that and she said "you must have been sick!"

I went home and slept for 15 hours. Our park trip was cut very short and I felt horrible about it. I ruined my Boyfriend's day. He tired to tell me it was ok, but I still feel really awful about it.

I sitll didn't feel right today either. My workout was cut short because my body felt strange. I am hoping that a day or regular food and drink will set me right again.

I think that is all for now

    That is really strange! Except for the stomach thing, that sounds almost like really bad hot flashes. I had some hormonal problems and started getting hot flashes at age 28.

I also had a similar problem when I started taking a new medication. Or low blood sugar? Gee, what a weird thing.

Sorry you had a crappy trip to the park.

just me..... blah blah blah as usual


It's my back... OMG it's my back...(photos totally unrelated)

Thursday, August 23, 2012

I called the Chiropractor today only to find out the office is closed until the 28th. He must be on vacation. *SIGH*

My back is really hurting. As much as I hated to do it, I took the day off from riding because of how much it hurt. I took the day off from pretty much everything because of how much it hurts. I hate to do it. I am really bummed out I didn't get to ride today. I am bummed out I didn't really get to do anything today. I figure it is better taking a few days off then to really hurt it and have to take an extended period off.

The pain is running on my right side from about my mid-back up my spine to my shoulder blade, and across the front into my rib cage. The muscles are sensitive to the touch. They almost feel bruised when I touch them. The pain seems worst ... well it hurts all of the time unless I am laying flat out. Sitting hurts, standing hurts... it all freaking hurts.

I guess the good part is, we are going to Hershey Park on Tuesday. At least I won't have to go again to get popped back into place after all of those wicked rides.

Here are some Snap shots of my fave rides

The Newest and Baddest Coaster - Skyrush - boasts 200 foot drop and 75 mph - I haven't ridden this one yet, but I can't wait!

My Fave coaster of all - Fahrenheit -

My Boyfriend's fave, my second fave - Storm Runner

and of course.... the Sidewinder -- how could you not love this oldie but goodie?

I think that is all for now!

    my son is a coaster lover, he would love to visit that park, as for your back, sounds like and remember im not a doctor, a pinched nerve maybe
but could be a pulled muscle
i sound like my own doctor trying to determine what is up with my foot....
told me today its a spur, but im not buying that being my problem til i see the podiatrist and just as u said, its gonna be at least 2 weeks or longer for an appt.
good luck, hope we can both do some forms of exercise and work with and thru the pain
