Well this is 4th of July week. I was a little concerned with having so many days of work in a row. It was also a pretty stressful week as my older daughter Sydney broke her arm on Tuesday. My first thought was; what will I do for my workout and such on Wednesday because she needed to go in in the afternoon to see a specialist. So I called right away Wednesday as I had my workout, adjustment, and my nutritionist appointment all on that day, and with the holiday coming up I was limited. But I LOVE Woodbury Spine! They were so helpful—they got me set up with Christy over the phone (nutritionist), they also informed me that if I wanted I could work out and do my adjustment on Friday at 6:30am. My first thought was “Ouch…but I gotta do, what I gotta do”. So I said that if I couldn’t get there in time for my appointments on Wednesday I would see them bright and early Friday morning. Amazingly Children’s Hospital was really good about getting us in and out, so I was able to make it on Wednesday. I never thought I would be so happy to make my work out! Then on Friday I ended up going to Urgent Care because something was wrong with my IUD (Birth Control). What I found out was that when you lose a lot of weight or become active for extended periods it can shift. Because of this it then needs to be monitored while the changes are occurring to ensure that it is still placed well and effective. This was yet another stressor. But because of my 8 Weeks to Wellness I was able to handle it with only a little bit of crying and such. And through everything my husband and my family at Woodbury Spine has coached, mentored, guided, cheered, and supported me through it all!! I really wouldn’t have kept going on this program if it wasn’t for the support that I get from them. At the end of the week I was down 11 pounds and 5 ½ inches!
