School Started!

Now normally I'm always a little excited for school to start, but this is my last semester so I'm ready to be done!  I was only a few credits short for my degree so I decided to take a few fun classes to fill up my schedule.  Fun is a very loose term here since they're still school classes... :)  Along with them being "fun," these classes were picked to help me in my fitness journey!  I am taking a nutrition class and a health and wellness class!!  I'm excited to learn information that I can take with me for the rest of my life.  I will be sharing what I learn as well as challenge those that read my blog to take this journey with me (just without the homework and exams!).

Hoping this will be the most beneficial choice I've made in "filler courses" since I started college!

It's been almost 2 weeks since I rushed to the ER with blood gushing from my finger and I haven't picked any exercise back up.  There are still possible complications with my finger.  (waiting on x-rays to see if it's fractured, and possible nerve damage...)

I keep seeing posts from the Shrinking Jeans ladies that talk about excuses, and time to go, and stuff like that and it's making me impatient.  I want to get back into it.  I want to get back on track, but I'm afraid of the pain that might come with the heart pumping and the blood flowing.  The throbbing and the pain if I do something just a bit off and I might hurt my finger.

I'm ready to be all better.  I want my finger back so I can type with 10 fingers... And I want my finger back so I can take normal showers (without the plastic bag around my hand) after a great workout!

I wish everyone that's reading luck to keep on truckin' with their journeys and remember that it's important and once you get into the swing of things, you miss it when it's not available to you. :)
