It’s been busy in my world.
1. I have graduated from physical therapy. I’m unsure about my gait and I still can’t quite figure my body out. My pelvis and SI joint slips in and out too easily, I feel like. Apparently this happens to women a lot. Dang my woman body. I had gone as far as I could with my PT and I will continue to try and figure out the rest of my issues on my own. I still have a lot of strengthening and work to do on my glutes and muscles surrounding the hip. I’m consistent with my strength training and I know it’s working, but I spent many years with different compensations for my labral tear. Research research research. The story of my life.
2. I have been pre-approved for a house, so I am now looking! It’s so exciting! It’s a big step and commitment, but I know in my heart that it’s the right decision for me. I am so ready to be settled and back in OKC where my job and friends are. Not that I won’t miss my family & friends down here, but Dexter and I are ready to have our own space.
3. Paleo/Primal. You’ll be hearing me talk more about this in coming blogs. I notice that after I eat certain foods, my body responds to it in a negative way. The other day I ate a chicken sandwich at work, and it was on wheat bread. About 30 minutes after I was done, I got heart palpitations & I felt instantly drained. Sometimes that happens after I eat wheat, but only certain brands. This cannot be a good thing. Also, after eating other types of food including wheat, I notice my muscles ache more and my joints are in more pain. I do not know if this is all psychosomatic, but I have been reading about gluten intolerances and inflammatory foods, and I believe I may have either a sensitivity or something to the effect. I hate to jump on the gluten free train, but I don’t want to substitute with other crap carbs. I would prefer go whole/real foods in substitution. Like I said, I will post about it later as it is next to impossible for me to start this lifestyle while living 3 days here and 2 days there and then 2 days over there. No way, not going to happen until I am settled down.
I look forward to 2014. 2013 kind of sucked, to be honest.
I’m happy once again and apparently it shows on my face.
I’m looking forward and I pray that this year I can begin running again, all the while listening to my body.
Happy New Year!
