It's Official's official that I am in a horrible mood today. I am not sure why. My head is killing me because I am trying to give up Diet Dr. Pepper. I heard a story on the radio that if you drink sodas everyday, you are holding onto 10 extra pounds. I am going to give them up and see how it goes. I'll let you know how it goes......if my head doesn't explode first!!!!

I Feel Great!

My appointment with the chiropractor was awesome. He put some electrodes on my back and hips. It was so relaxing...I even fell asleep. Then, he came in and did some adjustments. My left leg feels so much better. I think I could run 100 miles tonight. Actually, I probably couldn't. He did tell me it was okay to continue running, but to lay off the hills. That will not be a problem at all. Honestly, the only odd part of the whole appointment was that the chiropractor was my age. All of my previous doctors have always been older than me. Pretty soon I will be saying, "That doctor doesn't even look old enough to vote." My parents and grandparents always say that when they see a younger doctor.

I go back Thursday for some more adjustments, and then he said I should be all better! I was so excited to hear that. I am kind of upset with myself that I didn't go 9 months ago when I began hurting :) Oh well, live and learn.

Nervous...for no good reason at all!

Okay, I have to admit that I am really nervous about an appointment I have tomorrow. I am finally going to see a chiropractor. My left leg and hip has hurt every day for the past 8 months. Every since I started running a lot, something was not right with my leg. I have been way too hardheaded to go see anyone. I didn't want to go to the doctor, because I knew he would tell me to quit running. I am fully addicted to running and I enjoy eating! If I were to quit, I would have to buy new clothes, and that wouldn't be good. After talking with a few people in Alpine (that I trust), I decided that I will go see the chiropractor tomorrow afternoon. I am hoping that he will just pop my hip back into place. My hairstylist is a runner and she loves the man. She said you can go in for a quick adjustment and you will be good as new. I don't know why I am nervous. I think it's because I have never been to a chiropractor and I don't know what to expect. Hopefully this time tomorrow I will be feeling much better. I'll let you know.

Lost & Found

I received a bracelet from my previous boss for Christmas last year. It is called a Pandora bracelet and you can put charms on it. I have gotten charms from different people throughout the year and I love it. It means so much to me. A few weeks ago, I noticed that it was missing. I was going crazy...I tore my house apart multiple times looking for it. I prayed about it all the time and just wanted to find it. I am usually not a sentimental person, but this bracelet meant so much to me. Then, last Wednesday I was cleaning my closet...I found a purse with some stuff in it and decided to look for it one more time. I dumped everything out and didn't find it. I became sad and just wanted to cry. I then noticed a tiny whole in the lining of the purse. It was so small that my index finger wouldn't even fit in it. I felt around the lining and thought, is that my bracelet I feel? I ripped out the lining faster than you can say, "I'm glad this is a fake purse from Chinatown in NYC." I was so excited to see my bracelet! I cried tears of joy and then proceeded to call my whole family and tell them the good news. Thank God I found it. I have worn it every day since then!!!

Blackberry-My New Favorite Fruit

I decided to buy myself a birthday present. I got a Blackberry on Ebay and I absolutely love it. I have had it for only a few days and I am now wondering how I have lived 27 years without one. I can reply to emails instantly, chat on gmail, and talk on the phone! I love it so much. My sister is telling me that if I get hooked on this, she is going to have an intervention. We love that TV show and watch it all the time. It makes us feel so normal! My brother-in-law told me he would be worried if I started to put my blackberry in a ziploc and put it in the shower with me!!! I really don't think that will ever happen. Also, I used to make fun of Justin and his "crackberry"...guess I can't do that anymore!

I hope everyone is doing well. I haven't blogged in awhile, but I am going to be better. I promise!!!
