School started yesterday, so far so good. I really enjoy the school I am at this year and plan to remain at this school as long as I am in this position. I feel very welcome there already. I am stilling having issues with my neck and headaches so it has made some of the day unbearable. I usually feel good for about a week after I go to the chiropractor. But since insurance doesn’t cover it, I have only been going once a month, but I think that I am going to have to try to go next week, it’s starting to become pretty painful again. Patrick and I are going out of town for Labor Day weekend with my parents and my little brother, although we are all arriving at different times, Patrick and I will be the last to arrive on Saturday afternoon and we will all head home sometime on Monday. I am looking forward to getting away for a few days and being out in the country, we will be down in Oxford, Ohio again where my sister lives. I hope getting away for a few days helps, I feel like my stress just keeps mounting. I had the house clean last Friday and already it looks like crap. Also our bedroom closet keeps coming off track and we can’t get it back on, I really don’t want to call the maintenance guy to fix it, I hate having people in my apartment. Dad, that means I need you to come over and try to fix it first. Last time, we ended up calling the maintenance man but we didn’t even bothering asking my dad, so dad…get over here next week please!
I think that I am going to start a food journal again, I have done one in the past and it seems to help but I never seem to keep it going more than a few weeks, I get easily sidetracked from it and then never go back to it. Last time I food logged, I used myfitnesspal.com, so I think I will try used that again. For those of you who food log, what do you do? If I just write it on paper I won’t keep up with it, I have a better chance of keeping up with it if I do it on the computer. So tomorrow will be day one of the food tracking until my final week-in for insurance on September 25. I want nothing more than to report back that I was successful in hitting the mark needed to submit to surgery and then I want to be able to report back and says that my surgery is on such and such a day. I want to keep this ball rolling. Other than the final weight in and my endoscopy on the 18th. I am all ready to submit. I completely all the other pre-requirements. My dad and I are going to make a few trips to the gym next week and maybe even play racquetball there and by play I mean, my dad plays and I look like an idiot since I suck at it, but my dad is a beast at it and I know he won’t be crazy rough or anything with me but still I suck massively compared to him. We have played in the past and I can never return the ball, I am lucky if I hit it!
I hope to be able to post a blog tomorrow but it might be a little hard. After work I am going to visit an old friend, you may recall that I posted an article about her back in July, she is the jeweler heading to New York fashion week. I haven’t seen her in quite a few years so it will be nice to get together. Then my favorite part of going on a trip, packing, also has to happen tomorrow night as well as feeding my brother’s two cats, one of which is this tiny kitten who is so cute. I can’t wait to play with her. I try to play with his male cat but he never will play with me. Cats are insane, I have been make two baskets to donate to the upcoming Walk From Obesity in a few weeks, I came home from work today and one of the baskets was all over the floor. I honestly don’t know how Rowan, my cat, managed to knock it on the floor. But it had ribbon in it and ribbon equals fun to him so he must have decided that it was okay to play with it. I wish I could spend my life playing with ribbons and such, life would be so much simpler. But I am not a cat and life is not that simple. But I just have got to keep going and maybe one day it will be.
