Sunday Confessions

The end of a month seems like as good as time as any to do a "what in the world has Meg been doing?!" post!

Seeking Sunshine & Roses // I wish I had a bunch of super fun updates to share, but sadly that is the farthest thing from the truth. There are days I can hold it together pretty well, but there are others when it feels like my world is crashing down around me.

Talk It Out // I finally made the call and had my first therapy appointment a couple of weeks ago. There is something about sitting in a room, with someone completely disconnected to your life or your situation and simply have them listen to you talk.

Crossfit // I made the extremely difficult decision this week to put Crossfit on hold for a bit. I've had a love/hate relationship with it for quite a while now and just simply have not been having fun. Normally, a good, hard workout will help pull me out of my funk but recently it has been adding to it. Plus, the hour drive to the box and the hour drive home were also taking their tolls, so I'm putting it all on hold for now.

New Normal // Instead of going to Crossfit, I have now had to find a new home for my workouts. Thankfully, there is a fitness center associated with the hospital I work at so I'll be heading there 3 or 4 times a week to get in some work. The biggest downside to the whole thing is not being able to lift heavy, but I have a couple of options to eventually get back to the part of Crossfit I really love.

Fall // Weeee!! Fall has officially arrived in northern Michigan and I am SUPER excited about it. Crips weather. Hot coffee drinks. Leaves changing colors. An excuse to wear skinny jeans with boots. I love this time of year!

All The Yarn // The cooler temperatures also mean that the urge to crochet has hit again. Last weekend I made 4 hats alone! Not all of them were for me, because honestly, who needs that many hats, but they are still super fun to make.

Recovery // This past week I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss my MRI results to to talk options. Sadly, he is the second doctor to tell me I should give up on Crossfit, which is simply not going to happen. Instead, after talking additional options, we agreed that physical therapy is the best option at this point. Thankfully, my boss specializes in sports medicine and is already planning my treatment.

Sunday Confessions: Life Lately

Well, hello there October! Wasn't expecting to see you quite so soon!

Boring // Life has been pretty dull as of late. I feel like all my days are the same.....work, crossfit, eat, sleep, repeat.

Crossfit // I'll eventually do a full post dedicated to this, but I've been working with my crossfit coach, Trevor, since May on getting my diet/nutrition whipped into shape. Needless to say, it hasn't been going well at all. We meet again this week and I think it's time to rethink so of my goals because right now, constantly not hitting my macros and weigh-in expectations is killing my self esteem.

Ortho // Tomorrow afternoon I am off to meet with the orthopedic surgeon to discuss my ankle problems. The MRI I had last month showed that I do indeed have Achilles tendonitis but also a split in one of other tendons in my ankle. Fingers crossed I don't end up casted or in a boot for the next 4 weeks.

Music Monday: Modern Mal

It's been awhile since I did a Music Monday post, but I simply adore this song from Modern Mal! I'm definitely picking up a copy of their album as soon as it is released!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!

Happy September // So, I'm not entirely sure what happened to the month of August but I'm kind of glad fall is right around the corner. This summer has been exceptionally stressful and trying. So much more so than I was prepared to deal with. But, all storms come to an end and I'm hoping fall will provide that much needed break.

Injury // I finally caved last week and went to see my doctor about an ankle issue I have been having. Sadly, it's much worth than I thought it was and I'm off for an MRI on Tuesday! In the meantime, it means no running, no sled pulls and no double-unders at the Box until we sort out what is going on.
