Sometimes I feel like I tell you stories or bring up issues, and then I never remember to update you on how things turned out. Today, I'm going to update you on a couple things that have been going on in my life! I updated you on some other things last week, hence this post being "Part 2".
I love my short hair. Ever since I cut my hair, I have been loving it. The only problem is, my hair is growing faster than I want it to! I really liked it for about two weeks. Then I had to buy a hair straightener because it was getting long and there were parts that would flip up, curl, and look weird. I wish when you cut hair you could make it not grow until you want it to! I went 5 weeks between my first cut/color and I think I will try to stick to that.
Nutrition. At the beginning of January, I talked about how I needed to do better with the timing of my meals. I was getting into some bad habits of not eating after a workout and things like that. I am happy to say that while I'm not perfect, I am doing a lot better than I was at the end of 2016. For the most part I try to not let myself get too hungry as well as eat at least a little something after a workout whether I am hungry or not.
Knee Numbness/Pinched Nerve. Thanks to PT, the numbness is just about gone! I can still feel it, but it's a lot better than it was. It's also starting to feel a bit itchy, which my PT said is a good sign. I still feel that "stretchy" feeling in my skin when I bend my leg certain ways, but luckily it's not an angle that I *have* to bend my leg, so it doesn't affect my daily life or my running. It does prevent me from doing certain stretches, so of course I want to get this completely taken care of!
My "Panic" Attack. I'm not sure if what I actually had on Thursday was a panic attack because I didn't need to go to the hospital or anything. And I don't want to compare what I was feeling to what other people experience which can be WAY worse. But after that horrible experience on Thursday, I decided I needed some strategies so it wouldn't happen again. So this is my game plan for the rest of the year at work:
1. Stay calm.
2. Don't try to be Super Woman.
3. Do. Not. Yell. If I'm yelling something is wrong.
Update me on something going on in your life!
