And just like that …

… the holidays are almost over!

I am really looking forward to having an enjoyable New Year’s Eve after the last several crap ones. I have an awesome boyfriend to kiss at midnight, a beautiful dress (that I got for sale $30 oh yeah!), and a party to go to.

Speaking of boyfriend, he spent Christmas with me and my family and I couldn’t be happier. We spent six days/nights together in a row (three at my place, then three at his). He spoiled me over Christmas with so many nice gifts, including a key to his apartment ❤ 🙂 Also a beautiful necklace. I am the luckiest, happiest girl in the world. We haven’t had a real “fight” yet (well, it’s only been three months so we should still be on our “honeymoon”), but spending so much time together has caused us to bicker a bit and irritate each other at times. We are currently spending two days apart so we can have some time alone and do the things we need to do … he is working today, actually. I also had a pile of laundry to do (he has no washer/dryer).

Pants are tight, especially with all of the holiday eating and drinking … however, I have started walking again with my dog (my mother the angel was taking care of him and walking him due to my broken collarbone). I am really enjoying the holidays (and time off work) and although I am dreading going back to work (because I have so much to do when I go back), I am kind of looking forward to starting my detox and getting some of this combination holiday/accident weight off.

Still recovering … tomorrow will be three weeks since my accident. I am still in a lot of pain, and there are many other headaches associated with this … it was a real kick in the pants getting my ambulance bill in the mail yesterday. I get hit by a drunk driver and now I am having to pay bills upon bills, filling out paperwork for insurance, taking time out of my day for appointments, etc. … all of this on top of the actual pain. But yes, I know that I am lucky to be alive and relatively well, and it could have been a lot worse. I’m so happy that myself and my sweet guy are ok. We celebrated his birthday this week and soon we will have our first Christmas together. 🙂

Physically, there have been some improvements … we are able to have (gentle) sex again, YEAH! And I can’t go to yoga, lift weights, etc. but I have started walking again. I also try to get more steps in each day (the Fitbit helps with that). I also started driving again, even though it makes me nervous.

I have decided that I will try my detox diet again starting on January 5th … the craziness of the holidays will be over then and I should be recovered enough to do some gentle exercise (hopefully).

Wishing everyone healthy and happy holidays XO

Go hug the one you love! And love your pets. And be happy. 🙂
