December 2013

What can I say I have been so busy I haven’t even had time to write on my blog in a while. Where to start.

Well it is Christmas time at the White Household again. Bring on the craziness that I love oh so much.  That brings on the fun and little extra time.  So you might ask how that relates to my hip.

Well lets see I have been teaching and working at Wegmans and know that there is just more of that to come.  I teach at least 3 days a week if not more and then working Sundays at Wegmans. It has been amazing that my hip has been tolerating this and so much more. There are weeks where I get to go to the gym twice a week and most times that is after teaching.

I started back in October working with a personnel trainer, who by the way is amazing. It is my old physical therapist. This guy is great. We have been doing so many neat things. The strength is building in my right leg and I am very happy about that. Even better I am losing weight again. I hope this helps this hip last longer if I get to a better weight. He is pushing my limits and I am truly enjoying it.

This is just one of the new things I am able to do. Leg and arm are holding there own.

Now that Christmas time is here there is a little time for a break. I am helping where I can. I pretty much did the Christmas shopping, which I totally loved by the way. Running from store to store and no pain to speak of.  Well just muscle pain. Those words are still amazing to type. Just knowing where I was a year ago to where I am today is amazing. Yes last year I was able to help but nothing like this year. I thought Christmas last year was the best this one might just top that one but maybe not. We are making cookies, wrapping gifts, decorating and doing whatever else needs to be done. It is so much fun. I am going until I pass out at about 10pm and then I start it all over again the next day. The pain when it is present is all muscle and tends to hang out for a day and leave. Usually from over doing it  but I keep pushing the limits so my hip at some point might learn that I am the boss.

Well as Christmas gets closer I get more excited to be part of it. I enjoy being with my family and watching them enjoy Christmas. Knowing this year that I have been able to do so much more to help is great. That the only pain that I have is from over doing it is even better.

As I sit here and write this I know in just under a month I will be turning 30 in the best shape that I have ever been. My body is working and hopefully working right. I will be making the most of this birthday and will wrote more when that day comes.

Thanks to everyone that has been reading this blog. I hope that you have found it very helpful. I wish and yours a very Merry Christmas and an amazing 2014.

Jake and I wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
