I had a re-exam at the chiropractor today, basically checking on how my body has been doing lately. I will get the results on Friday.
But I was led to make a huge decision today.
I would have had to pay almost $200 with no insurance for today's visit with the re-exam, adjustment, and muscle stimulation therapy. I was paying $36 but no thanks to Obama they had to change their cash policy. Second option was to pay $40 for the adjustment, and then $10 for the therapy part, so a $50 max per visit but then the re-exam and x-rays would be extra. Third one was a 52 adjustment contract for $36 a visit which includes adjustments, therapy, 4 re-exams and an x-ray.
I decided after talking with them to do the $36 option. Money is definitely going to be tight but my mom said that she would help me cover the cost so that will be helpful.
Now that I have made this commitment, I feel like I owe it to myself to really focus on weight loss. If I am spending the money to help myself feel better, than I should be making the effort to take care of myself as well.
I will be signing up for a half marathon in June, being able to do that I believe is a great goal for myself.
I just need to stand up for myself and eat healthy instead of cheating so much on stupid things I don't really have a taste for at all.
Definitely lots of things to think about in my life. Will be finalizing this commitment soon and writing out my goals, challenging ones too!
Now with chiropractic and mental health therapy [individual and 2 groups] I feel like I have some good 'tools' in my 'tool belt' to get back on track here. I'm still struggling with depression, anxiety, and self injury but in time that will get better. I've seen it happen before when I do good with my weight I start to feel better mentally too.
So here's to putting an end to all the excuses and making a commitment!
