Saturday...the day before Sunday

The workouts have been hard as I get up before work to go running, but I'm already feeling better.  Funny how just a little bit of movement can change your perspective and your "feel good" feelings...

My life is pretty mellow tonight.  I worked in Seal Beach today (I still do massage on Saturdays for extra $$) and now I'm just relaxing on the couch after a long nap this afternoon.  Money is still tight and will be until after Christmas.  I'm so thankful for the massage job to help keep me afloat as I get my bills in order and pay off some of the debts I accrued while working (and not getting paid) at the Aesthetics company.  I hope that doesn't sound bitter- I'm grateful for that experience and even more grateful it's over now.

I had to go have a physical this week for a requirement for my job.  I was super nervous to meet with the doctor because I don't even know the last time I had a physical and I didn't know what it would entail.  It was mainly them just checking my vitals- but I haven't weighed myself in a few weeks (trying to avoid the scale and go off clothing tightness, etc) and I almost asked the nurse to weigh me backwards so I wouldn't see.  Of course, my curiosity got the better of me and I changed my mind last second.  138!! Yes- in the middle of the day too.  I'd also like to report that my blood pressure was 119/79.  That's a big deal for me because my whole family suffers from high blood pressure and when I gain even a little weight, it shoots up hardcore.  So yay for me for being healthy and working out this week!!!

Okay my loves- I'm out.  Time to get ready for the weekend.  Tomorrow is my first day off in weeks!!! I LOVE IT!!!




  1. Dizzy, It sound like you are adjusting to the changes in your life. I'm glad to hear you sounding so positive. I'm glad your physical went well and you were happy with your weigh in. Hang in there, dear.

  2. OMG - amazing BP...mine is always high. And 138 in the middle of the day with clothes on - AMAZING! Glad your life is mellow - that's so much better than not mellow and yucky right? Love you!

  3. 138? Hell yes lady!! So glad your outlook is good and you are happy again.

  4. Hooray for 138!!! And good news on the BP too. You're doing great, you have a plan, and you're well on your way in life. Woo-hoo!!

  5. Awesome job on all fronts, Diz! You sound happy, and that makes me happy to hear. SO true about the feel good feelings! last monday I got up extra early to go sprint/walk at the park before doing anything else, and the bad vibes I wanted to unleash that morning just disappeared! I hope you continue to feel better and do what gets you there. Enjoy your day off, sweet!
