  1. So doctors still have no clue what wrong. So now I'm going to turn to Eastern Medicine. Reiki maybe? Started the 30 Days of Yoga Challenge from Yoga with Adrianne. Kicked my butt - which is sad. But we must all start somewhere. Cutting out dairy and wheat glutton t see if that improves digestion. Flying back east 7/3-7/18. Happy to see everyone but anxious about being with my parents for so long. Already found a yoga studio in town that does a 2 week trial for $25. It's the little things that are going to help me make it through.
  2. Got an email today: no Ph.D. I mean, I'm not 100% surprised but damn I'm disappointed. I will need to find something to channel my frustration into. *sigh*
  3. Wednesday update: I did not work out last night. On my walk home, fatigue hit me so hard it flt like i had lead weights attached to my arms and legs. So no working out. 5am wake up for a 5:50am skype interview. I think it went okay. I'm on the short list and they're doing ALL the interviews today. So I could know by Friday! I'm a ball of nerves and I only got about 4 hours of sleep. I'm hoping, hoping, hoping.
  4. Tuesday morning update: so I don't have Cyliac disease. I'm now thinking maybe I should go see a holistic/Eastern medicine practitioner. Because this is nonsense. Anyway, I did a long walk with a few minutes of jogging Sunday. Just shy of 3 miles. Man I miss running. I'm going to workout tonight, and then try to get to bed early as I ahve my Coventry interview tomorrow and need to be awake at 5am. AHHH.
  5. Okay, lots going on. First - I had a cold last week - who gets a cold in June? - so I put working out on hiatus until I wasn't snuffly. But I got back to it today! Second - CT scan came back completely normal. So no cancer/tumors/etc. But n answer about my illness. Blood tests galore, and a weird diet to see if that helps. Meh. Third - I INTERVIEW WITH COVENTRY ON WEDNESDAY AHHHH! At 5:30am. Because England is 8 hours ahead of me. Yikes! Yay! Ah! Fourth - new workout routine: Saturday Workout: 10 bodyweight lunges 8 bodyweig
  6. I know! But my research site would be in London, so I either need to live in Coventry & commute to London or live in London and commute to Coventry. And everyone I've talked to has said that Coventry isn't quite happening for a single 30-something. :/
  7. Coventry University - but I would probably live in London and commute up. I'm really hopeful!
  8. Got another workout in. Feel good but will definitely need to switch it up - they're less difficult than last week for sure! Wednesday Workout: 3x10 back step lunges 3x10 dumbbell press ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell curl ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell rows (10 lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell hammer curls (10lbs each arm) 3x10 goblet squats (10lbs dumbbell) Have a CT scan and GI doc appointment for next week. Here's to hoping that they find something and can help me defeat this thing once and for all. In other news: I should know within the next
  9. It's Monday and I don't have to work! So I got up and pushed through a good workout. I was going to go for a run, but it was going to be 80 by 10am, so that wasn't happening. Monday Workout: 3x10 back step lunges 3x10 dumbbell press ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell curl ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell rows (10 lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell hammer curls (10lbs each arm) 3x10 goblet squats (10lbs dumbbell) I still find this workout challenging. I think another week or two, then I'll have to switch it up, but I feel good. Not weightless or an
  10. I survived the weeeeeeeek!!!! Friday Workout: 3x10 back step lunges 3x10 dumbbell press ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell curl ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell rows (10 lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell hammer curs (10lbs each arm) 3x10 goblet squats (10lbs dumbbell) I feel pretty good.

  11. My Niece was born last night!!!! The newest love of my life has arrive and I am beyond over the moon. Welcome to the world, little bit. It's a wild and crazy place, but you'll be loved a whole bunch in the middle of it. <3
  12. Okay, okay. Work has EXPLODED and I'm mediating my way through lawyers and madness (not directed at me - I'm there in an advisory capacity). So... Yeah. Craziness. Doctory-things: well, I don't have a bleeding ulcer and the doc doesn't think I have an ulcer at all. BUT there's no indicator of what's actually wrong with me and when she touched the area above my bellybutton I screamed. So, that's awesome. I'm on some weird med that's actually an Anti-depressent (?!?) which is also prescribed for heart and intestinal trouble. I'm kind of worried they think it's just psychosomatic and
  13. I have managed to snack my way through today. Yikes! Will HAVE to do much better tomorrow :/
  14. Wednesday Workout: 3x10 back step lunges 3x10 dumbbell press ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell curl ups (10lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell rows (10 lbs each arm) 3x10 dumbbell hammer curs (10lbs each arm) 3x10 goblet squats (10lbs dumbbell) A little sleepy still this morning, but glad I got a workout in before heading into work. I might try to go for a run on Saturday. Baby steps...
