Feeling Better

5 Comments 856 views

It’s amazing what a little distraction does for me. I had my first day at a client site for a new project I have. It’s a long term deal and (you’re going to think I’m crazy) but I’m looking forward to the 2-3 days in an office. I never really realized how much “work” suits me. Not teaching but project work. I like solving problems and being creative and that’s what I’m allowed to do on web projects (and boy this one is a doozy!)

So the toddler had a day at camp and I had a day in the office. I started my morning with a filling breakfast (Grapenuts and berries), brought a few snacks (pineapple and Kashi bar) and hit a salad bar for lunch (added some protein with tuna and chick peas). Dinner, well, I was just NOT in the mood. Me, not in the mood to cook. SEE it happens! ;~) So we got Chinese and I enjoyed my steamed chicken with veggies, and split a spring roll order with the toddler. For dessert some fruit and a little bit of ice cream, again, split with the toddler. Then I took my own advice and the family went out for a post dinner walk. I couldn’t go too far, I’m still quite sore and VERY swollen but it felt good to get moving.

After the toddler went to bed, I recorded a (not very) quick video answering some questions. It’s long, it’s sappy and it’s shaky but I’ll post it anyway. You can decide not to watch it. ;~P

All in all, though, a great day! I just cannot wait to get real active again! Never in my life, NEVER, would Imagine in my wildest dream that I would MISS the gym as much as I do. I mean really, I’m craving a workout.

OH! and I drank 128oz of water! It didn’t help much with the swelling though. :~(

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Glad to know you’re getting close to being your old self again.

    That’s what running will do for you. It’s totally addictive.

    Can’t wait to see “after” pics!

    I share laura’s sentiments.
    so much of life is finding out what makes us HAPPY & makes our days fly by in a good day.

    if being in an office a few days a week is that for you then GREAT!

    glad youre inching toward being healed as well!
