2012 So Far

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

2012 hasn't been going exactly how I planned, but I wouldn't call it a total fail. At the end of January I had LASIK vision correction, pretty awesome. I went from only being able to read up close without wearing glasses/contacts to being able to see 20/15! LASIK came with a catch though (of course, doesn't everything?), I had to wear glasses for 2 weeks prior so my eyes could go back to their normal shape. Since I'm a (or used to be? lol) a contact wearer, the eyes take the shape of the contacts and need time to resume their regular shape before surgery. I mean...I hate wearing glasses. Mine are old so an old prescription, usually give me headaches, how am I supposed to work out?! I pretty much went into hiding, very limited workouts if any at all. I eventually caught a cold as well which I haven't been able to shake a month later! In the meantime, I've really been watching what I eat. Lettuce wraps instead of hoagie buns, vegetarian instead of meat. Small changes have helped me lose around 3lbs, big for me you guys! I had the stomach flu last week which was a doozy but I finally got back to the gym yesterday. I could only do 10 min running intervals but I'm looking forward to getting back at it. Might start C25K training all over, the next 5K I'm signed up for is the beginning of May so I have plenty of time.

Migraines have still been plaguing me. I didn't have any for well over a month, right before/after the LASIK surg. Now I've had a constant migraine for about a week, probably due to the stomach flu and being sick. I'm certainly thankful for the long stretch of time without a migraine but could really do without this constant feeling.

30th birthday is less than 2 weeks away now! Looking forward to it - Betsy and I are going to Tampa to visit a friend for a long weekend. Should be a good time, we're planning on going to the beach, outlet shopping and a trip to Busch Gardens. Other than that, not too much is going on! emoticon
