Today I went to a funeral for a 20 year old. I am having trouble with his death, not because we were particularly close, or because his sister is one of my best friends, but because of his youth and knowing that there could have been so much mor... Read more
Tomorrow I am having some friends over to hang out and watch movies in celebration of my 31st birthday, which is on Monday. I am looking forward to being social for a change. It is also forcing us to clean up and sort through the boxes that were... Read more
Having a slighlty better day...
So I was feeling pretty sore and exhausted with my last blog post. I had a really bad night that night, little sleep, lots of tossing and turning because I hurt so much even with Celebrex in my system that I couldn't find a position that was com... Read more
Today has not been the greatest, pain-wise. My energy levels are crap, but I really didn't get a huge amount of sleep last night so that is not surprising. I just hate these days where I am tired because it makes it so much harder to ignore the... Read more
Wow, it has been awhile...
I loose track of time and then start forgetting about what my goals are. My journal is like this too, a few entries, then a long period of nothing and then a few more entries. I think that whenever I do something that I feel I shouldn't or miss ... Read more
Just a short note for today
I am back. I am committed. I know I have been absent for quite awhile, but there has been a lot of crazy stuff going on, and a lot of it had to do with my health. I will post more about it later, but probably not until next week.
We are mov... Read more
I walked 4 km today!
This morning I got up and I did 2 km, in the rainy, cold, darkness. It was pretty miserable, but definitely worth it. This afternoon, though, I had an internal debate about whether to take a nap or to explore a trail with Webster. Luckily I pick... Read more
It's getting colder here
This morning I got up to go for my walk, and luckily checked the temperature before leaving the house. It was almost freezing! Long johns were quickly added to my walking attire, along with mittens. I love mittens! The crisp fall air felt wonder... Read more
I am so sore...
But it is a good sore. Yesterday I did the butt blasting workout video (which is EVIL) and the 20 minute core video. Then I decided that I should go and ride. I rode for over an hour and did a lot of 2-point and sitting trot, as well as riding w... Read more
What a fantastic morning!
I finally made it out to the farm. I guess I wasn't as over the recent depression episode as I thought because I just couldn't face the 30 minute both ways drive out to see my beast until today. That's ok though, because I know she is super well... Read more
The last week has been pretty messed up for me. My depression really flared up and I just wasn't functioning very well. I ended up avoiding most people, and the barn. I haven't seen my horse since Friday. I think I might go out today, even thoug... Read more
More random rambles
I got in a quick ride yesterday before the sun started setting. I had to ride on the trails again because the ring was too wet so I wanted to get back to the barn before the coyotes started to come out of hiding. Ellie and I trotted most of the ... Read more
So this is 30...
My birthday was yesterday. I decided that I was going to eat what I wanted to, but be more mindful of how much I was putting in my mouth. I still ended up stuffed, but I ate a lot less than I normally would have. It was a pretty good day, went o... Read more
Things are getting easier
I noticed a difference today when I did yoga. It was my third time doing that video that I found on YouTube and I was able to be a bit more flexible. The movements are getting easier to do. I also did some Zumba and that was easier too. It feels... Read more
Kinda a ramble, just fits with my day
I couldn't sleep at all last night. I was up for about 22 hours straight. I finally got to sleep around 7 am and slept until 3-ish. I get so frustrated when that happens. I was tired too, just couldn't turn my brain off. All that put me in a pre... Read more
