This is one of those posts that I just need to write, publish, and get out of my system, so I can move on. I’m actively working on reminding myself of the positives and focusing on the good things, but that’s been hard. Here’s why:

What a fun week it’s been. My mom has been in town since Tuesday, and she’s leaving today.

Yesterday was a big day – my first day back at the gym after a forced week-long hiatus thanks to my hip!
Man, I couldn’t wait to start exercising again. But I’ve been careful – you can never be too careful when it comes to injuries – and played it safe.
My hip was a major problem for most of last week. While it rendered me in immobile and in constant pain for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, things really started improving Read the rest of this entry »
