My butt feels much better.

Vickie told me how she treated her piriformis. I tried it and what a huge difference it has made. It's not 100% but it is sooooo much better than it was. I saw my doc today. She told me what I was doing was good but still gave me a referral to PT. When I stopped there to schedule my first appt. I found they are booked for 5 weeks. So I'm not holding out a lot of hope for that. I will continue to do what I'm doing and hope for the best.

Okay, so I'm facing a couple of new, exciting things in the coming year. There will be decisions to be made on a number of fronts. It's all very exciting. The thing is I'm scared. I love new adventures and experiences but there's a lot coming up.

One of the things is Honu. It's getting to the point where I will have to make a solid decision on Honu. I will need to start training next month so it's time to put up or shut up. I really want to try a 70.3 but it's scary. I've done an olympic distance and did fine but 70.3 is a lot further. It's scary, very, very scary. So that decision has to be made.

On another front is the house. I have never had any desire to own a house. Don't ask me why, I don't know, I just have never had the desire to own my own house. Well, we've reached a point in our lives where we really have to. We are on a lease in this house until April but if we are going to buy the decision will have to be made soon to start the process. It's scary. It's not something I really want to do but something I feel I SHOULD do. It's very, very scary.

On top of that the holidays are coming. While these aren't scary, they are a little depressing. Since my Mom's gone they are just not the same anymore. So that's just one more thing to add into the mix.

Finally, things will be changing at work. I'm not sure exactly what form the change will take but it's going to be a big change. While this is scary, I'm really looking forward to it because deep down I do love change. This change will probably be the easiest to handle since it's not completely new. The other things are completely new, untested water. Work, ehh, been there done that.

So I'm scared. There are big decisions to be made in the next few months and since some of them are in the unknown, it's scary.

Okay, enough of that. I think about it all the time, nuff already.

The eating is going well. I've been really good at logging my food in FitDay and things are starting to click. I've dropped 4 lbs so I'm off to a good start. I'm really feeling good too.

Well, that's all I have to say!!! Nothing more to see here, move along :)

Change has always turned out for the best when it came my way no matter how much I wanted and tried to put the brakes on.
The feeling is normal, but like a wave in the ocean, it will pass over and through you and be gone!
Owning a house is just like renting. You can't take it with you when you die but you don't have to answer to anyone else other than the morgage company :) LOL

Those are some big changes. Who wouldn't be a little scared?

Go for Honu!

Keep up with the tennis ball and ice. Eventually it will pay off, depending on how bad yours is. Really, once you get some of that inflammation down and the soreness eases, you should be able to safely start doing some stretching. See what they say at PT too, but hopefully after 5 weeks you will be almost okay.

On the 70.3, I'm there with you. That is going to be one of my goals for next year, and like you, I am scared silly. I'll be watching your progress.

And I have a lot of family issues that make the holidays difficult, to say the least, so it is not always a time I look forward to either.

But we have to do what we have to do to survive I guess!

I hear you! I'm hoping to do a both a half and a full next year. It is scary but I think you have to trust that you'll be just fine. Be well.

And now it's Sunday

 We have one more week and then spring break. The break will be nice.  Yesterday we went to the Oddities & Curiosities Expo. It looked i...
