Healing Up

It's really tough sitting on the sidelines.

Since my ambulance ride to the hospital, days on IV narcotics & muscle relaxers to get my spasms & pain under control, and 2 weeks off from work, I am slowly feeling like myself again. I'm back at work light duty (no lifting any patients), and have been getting more into my physical therapy exercises. I've been dying to get on my running shoes…

I asked my PT yesterday if she thought I was ready to go for a run. Now, being a PT myself, I think I have a pretty good gauge of what I can handle, but I also don't want to overlook things because of the crazy runner who is buried inside me. She looked at me a little crazy, and said maybe a fast walk or slow jog for a mile. Not much, but i'll take it! It's on my list for tomorrow. I've been able to get on my bike trainer a few times for some easy pedaling, and have been working on my core stabilization and back exercises.

Life since marriage has been good. I need to post some pictures for those of you still reading to see! Kevin has been a trooper through it all, and been amazing through this whole injury process. I really put him through the test only 5 months in!

We celebrated Valentine's Day with a nice dinner out, and dessert at home. 

Hope you all had a wonderful V-day and are getting some good runs in for me!

It's Been a Long time...

I have a lot of catching up to do.

I'm coming back to this blog, in the same place as when I started it.  Laid up, unable to exercise, getting frustrated at the lack of health and fitness in my life. I originally started this blog while recovering from foot surgery almost 4 years ago.
You can read my first post HERE

Right now, I am stuck pretty immobile with a bad back. I've had issues in the past, but we'll keep this first post short and sweet by saying that it was simply the worst pain I'd ever experienced, and unable to move I was taken by ambulance on a stretcher to the hospital.

I'm doing a little better now, I'll even explain more later, but for now, I'm happy to say I'm back to blogging again.

Did you miss me?

Bachelorette & Weddings

My apologies!!

Life has been crazy, and I have NOT been blogging. I have exciting things going on, but first I should catch you up!

I went to Atlantic City for my Bachelorette Party!

We spent a few days enjoying the beach, outlet shopping, booze cruising, and having fun at the casinos!

I went to a friend from High Schools wedding...
(Horrible pic I know!)

I completed the Athleta Iron Girl in Webster, MA

I've been working hard at the Bia bootcamp challenge and putting the finishing touches on my wedding which is only weeks away, along with some other great projects in the works.

I Promise to fill you all in next time!

Bridal Shower!

I'm preparing myself to get on track.
You see, I keep having events that lead me astray!

I had the week from hell at work.
then before I had a chance to de-stress,

It was my bridal shower...

My bridesmaids & Maids of Honor with me on the day
I ate well for the most part, except a few Bellinis and a small piece of cake. It was great to spend time with family and friends, and think about all the uses for my new household goods!

I also snuck in my first dress fitting for my wedding gown, which I am even more in love with than before!

I had some excellent runs last week, but fell victim to some stress eating after work, which hit a high note on friday night. After a nice dinner out with Kevin at the Northampton Brewery, which consisted of nachos, wings, pizza and beer, we hit La Fiorentina for dessert. 
I wish I had taken a picture.
Since there was a $10 charge card minimum, we got a little cake, slice of snickers cheesecake and a chocolate covered cannoli. When we got home, we then managed to devour it between the two of us, until I felt as though I may be sick.

Ever since then, I've had the worst belly bloat. I think I gained 5 pounds from all of that dessert. I've been aiming to focus on some clean eating, and exercise. So far, today went well! It really goes to show how awful all that junk is for you, it made me feel like crap!

Tomorrow I have 5am bootcamp, I'm getting ready for the big Bia Fitness challenge that starts July 1st!
 cannot wait!

What desserts or food make you have food regret?
How many days until I get rid of the bloat?
