Chiropractor tomorrow

I've booked myself an appointment with my chiropractor for tomorrow. My leg has been tingling too much, my hips feel... off, and I'm getting pain up my back. I'm pretty sure that I've shifted my sacrum so it's stimulating some nerves and I'm really looking forward to some relief.

I haven't been to see him in about two years, since my first set of visits during which he first put the bone back in place, and some weekly visits to do some alignments.

On a brighter note, my husband surprised me with roses this week! He wanted to cheer me up while going through all these midterms.

This and That

My back has been so sore all weekend. I injured it about 2 years ago, and poor posture during studying is taking its toll. I am in love with this posture perfect chair in the library I'm in right now. Yes, I should be studying for tomorrow's midterm. I'm so sick of midterms.
I over did it on peanut butter and pb cookies this weekend. I feel like I've definitely gained.
Some things to share:
- I binge on fatty foods in the afternoon, but my breakfast is essentially fat-free. I'm going to try incorporating fat into breakfast and see how I feel. (Oddly, pb makes me feel sick in the morning)
- Avocado in my morning smoothie was awesome. It kept me full for 2.5 hours until my second breakfast of oatmeal just now.
- Roni's Weigh is an inspirational weight loss blog I've started reading. This woman is awesome. A mother who joined Weight Watchers and kept up with her diet, then got into exercising and fell in love with it.
- Joy Victoria is a personal trainer who has a unique way of sharing information, in my opinion. She is very informed and shares her knowledge in a way that works for me. She is making me really think about things.
Enjoy your Monday!

I'm back, baby!

Hi! I've been busy....

My camera died, friends visited from out of province, I moved, parents visited from out of province, school started again, and midterms are just beginning.
I've decided to journal again, because I feel the pounds creeping on. I've been super tired (1-3pm naps were a necessity) and fighting a cold, so I've binged. But no more! I'm taking Tylenol cold and flu to clear my head, and have claimed this little baby for my own:

I have set myself a goal, which is the same as last time, and started recording yesterday. No wonder im feeling heavier! The energy-boostong binge wasn't huge, but just enough to start adding on pounds on the regular.

 Note that in the above image that the circled numbers are cumulative. Today's entry is looking better already, now that I'm writing it all down. It really does help to get a handle on things. I knew that my snacks weren't the best idea yesterday, but once I wrote it out I couldn't help but say out loud "Well, no wonder..."

Stay tuned as I pick things up again around here. I'll likely be posting mostly from my phone, so they'll all be short. I'd appreciate any support and love you can throw my way! Enjoy the rest of your day!
