HCB's Journal, 16 February 2021

Hello, Hello, Hello!

Yes, I am still around! I am happy to be "home." The last 90 days have been a whirlwind of worry, excitement, pain and pleasure! Sounds like a soap opera, right?

The biggest thing is planning, sorting, and packing. We are trying to get the house ready for sale as we will move to the Myrtle Beach area within four to five months. This involves moving my business and trying to get office space ahead of time so I have a business address for licenses, etc. This is the excitement coupled with the worry!

Although my left total hip replacement went well, Orange Theory has been open, then closed, then open, then closed. Minnesota's governor has been trying hard to prevent virus spread. This is the pain!

My eating was up and down as well, and my mood really dived. Fortunately, I could work using Telehealth and had two separate occasions when I did 18 days of work in row...insanity! Overworking and neglecting self-care is a pattern for me. This is also pain.

I have been back at Orange Theory for about a month and going slowly with any lower body work and the rowing machine. I was cleared to go back about two months ago but the gym was still closed here. I am SO happy to get regular again and my cardio is pretty good right now. I am working to increase the muscle on the left hip area. It is going well but slow.

Today I am starting 1200 calories a day with good counting using Seattle Sutton's plan. This is the pleasure!

I hear you and I see you. Moving and relocating jobs are definitely not an easy thing for anyone. I have relocated several times in this past year alone. Again , not easy. You need a break. Your health is very important and do the best you can. I would like to wish you the best of luck on your new journey 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️❤️

@ All my FS friends! Yay, it is SO good to never give up and always come back here. I have periods of time when I get too busy and life changes but I always come back to healthy!

Myrtle Beach will certainly be a HUGE change after Minnesota! We’ve been in a -23 degree couple of weeks, with snow 10 out of 14 days, in Missouri. We have broken MANY records! I’m over ready for spring! 😁
