Truth is, I've been actually the opposite of boring: coffee dates, running by the boardwalk, cottaging, going out with friends, celebrating summer, participating in a new and exciting launch (more deets to follow soon!), and overall being awesome.
Oh, and letting my son smash cars into my hardwood floor while I write.
Not so awesome: my blogging skills. I got some great feedback from my Facebook fans that let me know that some (4) of you actually read this, which got me motivated to write again.
Just kidding, I'll keep writing, just for the 4 of you. In July, I was at the cottage, getting up every morning with my husband and son and going trail running in preparation for my upcoming duathlon (run-bike-run). My back was a little tight from the hills, therefore I thought it would be a great idea to help my back feel better by swinging my 3-year-old nephew between my legs so he could kick a soccer ball.
I was out for a month. I went to my chiropractor (who I love.. she is a little pompous but she gets shit done) and got a few massages, but it took time, ice, TLC, and lots of telling my husband to do things for me for it to heal. I was actually really good nutrition-wise during my injury, as I literally could not do any working out. Because I was so amazing, I further told my husband what to do as a reward to myself.

I was about two weeks out from my duathlon and still couldn't put pressure on my right side. I decided to cancel the race and get an entire $20 back from my $100 entry fee.
Magically, the very next day, my back felt better. I thought it was Mother Nature trying to F with me, so I gave it a few more days. I was healed! Apparently when you finally give in to your back being F'ed up, it magically heals.
I re-signed up for my duathlon and actually did it a week later... and it was the coolest thing in life.
Okay, I promise I will write more, but my floors are now scratched to shit. It was totally worth it.
