Physical Therapy

So I have started on the PT train and let’s just say, those ladies my be nice at the beginning but with each session they like to start turning the screws tighter. And all because I was being competitive at hula hooping for field day at work. . .

Before heading to PT

Well, technically, this is a picture of me at my old office but still. I am smiling, life is decent and well, I wasn’t too worried about PT. My first day of it was a breeze. Meaning, it was all evaluation with some e-stims and heat. Nice. . .

Second Day of PT

Again, an older picture BUT this is how I felt after my second day of PT. They made me do some bridge exercises to build my core up. Which is great since that is what I need plus, my muscles that have been turning into fat recently are getting a workout.

So how do I feel after my third day of PT???? Well…

Not happy, not at all.

Yeah, they made me do a plank. Yoga terms people. And let me just say, there is a reason why I tried yoga one time and never went back. I am a weakling!

But the good news in all of this is that I am building my core back up and if I can keep it up, I will have less chances of hurting my lower back. And I am slowly making my way from stuffing my face full of food to watching what I eat and will be working towards getting all of this weight (depression weight is what I call it, what can I say, the last year hasn’t been the greatest) off of me.

My desire is not to get back to that super skinny being I was just a few short years ago. At this point, I just want to get the back fat off, the thighs under control and my clothes to look like they aren’t about to bust off of me.

It is a long road ahead but I will do this. I have to. The DNA given to me by my family isn’t the greatest and I need to beat the battle of the bulge before anything gets a hold of me. Plus, I can still hear Granny telling me I need to lose weight. I know Granny and I am going to try my hardest.

And the best part is, I am doing it for me. Which means that I might actually accomplish something.

Now I am off to beat my computer senseless because the web cam does not work and I wanted to take silly pictures of me!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
