Now that has "passed", time to move on

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Okay, now that the stone is gone, it is time to move forward.

Last Wednesday, while waiting to be seen by the chiropractor, I was sitting on a wobble seat doing my "stretches". Yes, the chiropractor has us sitting on these doing 3 basic exercises for about a minute each. They actually feel wonderful and actually do wonders on the back. So, I decided to go ahead and purchase one from Amazon when I got home.

While shopping on Amazon, I remembered that I had saved one of the articles on kettlebell workouts, and I have done a few in the past and loved them. So, I went ahead an purchased a set of 3 off of Prime, as well as a chin-up bar that my roommate and I had discussed purchasing. The chin-up bar is the only thing that hasn't arrived just yet. Apparently it is coming from Canada, and despite only being 6 hours away, it is taking 10 days to get here. Go figure.

The reason I bring this up is that I had already put into motion the desire to get healthy before this whole "kidney stone" thing blindsided me. But now that I have the tools, I have no excuses. Everything is here, I just have to do it. The other part of it is the food. Since the yellow jacket attack, I started eating out more than I should have, too. I had not felt like cooking, and neither had my roommate, as she was sick, too. I was surprised to see that I had actually lost weight, rather than gain it. Which is good. But still, that is not the point,

My desire is not to have these things come back again, so I'm sitting down now and taking note of the cause and effect for these things, and starting some menu planning for upcoming weeks. No more of this. No more. I'm not super busy, and I work from home, so I can take time out of my day. There are just no excuses. I have to do it.

So, it is time to put my words and thoughts and plans into action. No more spinning my tires and just talking about it. It's time to just "do it".
