Quieting back and looking forward to Carrie

Stupid back. I’ve been super focused on getting into shape and losing some weight so that I can get back into my favorite summer clothes.

Up until now, it’s been great, I feel better, I breath better, hiking is nicer. But last week I overdid things when I upgraded to heavier weights for my strength training, and not lowered the number of sets. I know better than that, I do. So sometime this week, I managed to pull a muscle in my back which has entirely derailed all my plans for the week and brought the exercise to screeching halt. ARRRGH. I can tell that more than not going to downtown to see the ships for Fleet week, or having to skip the hike we had planned for this weekend, just losing the level of activity I had grown accustomed to (pilates nearly every day, walking hills nearly every day, lifting weights, yoga, hiking) is driving me nuts. I want to be out exploring, I want to be walking.

With a good amount of Advil, I can sit upright now, but getting up HURTS and rolling over from my back to my side, ow.

So I’m quiet again because really, sitting here on the computer isn’t generating awesome adventures to write on here. However, I’ve been working on migrating this over to a newer, fancier, hopefully prettier webpage which I will let you all know about soon. Carrie, you are going to have to resubscribe to the RSS feed when that happens, sorry :)

Speaking of Carrie, she’s here for a visit in about one week, I am getting super excited. I miss her massive amounts – she was my go-to person for randomly calling up and saying “hey, you want to go —” and she’d nearly always be up for it. No matter how random or late it was. I foresee many long days and late nights next week – she’s not usually willing to call it quits for the night just because it’s late, and I’m not working for The Man yet so we won’t have a reason to stop early.
