Back on Track and it feels SO GOOD

Man. What a weekend.

Scratch that. What a WEEK!

I’m going to go ahead and warn you that this blog post is going to be ALL OVER the place! I tried to think about ways to seamlessly thread this all together….but it’s not really possible. So let’s just jump in shall we?!

First off, WORK IS CRAZY.

We all knew it was coming. Nearly every other conversation at work started with “blah blah blah during holiday season”. It always seemed so far away.

But the past week has made it apparent:

holiday is here!

And while it is super busy, I have to keep reminding myself: It’s only two months! In two short months it will be over and we’ll be wishing for the busy times again. Yes, I may be eating my breakfasts with one hand and unpacking new items with another…

but it won’t be like this forever. So I’m trying to soak it all up – take it all in, and enjoy the fun CRAZINESS while it lasts.

And yes, it doesn’t hurt that the weather has been positively gorgeous:

Beautiful, Fair Trade Jacket weather Smile

And it also doesn’t hurt that I have been VERTIGO FREE since my appointment on Thursday with an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist!

The Audiologist did a repositioning technique with my head which was BRUTAL but so far it seems to have worked! I still have a bit of fogginess…and I still have to sleep sitting up, 

sitting up

but I can see the light at the end of the vertigo tunnel.

I’m sure you can imagine – I was practically giddy over the weekend. Even though I was working, I was over the moon. It’s a firm reminder not to take my health for granted. If my body is healthy and able, I need to be active!

I’m sure you can also imagine that the lack of spinning lead to a lack of nausea. Which lead to an appetite for a DELICIOUS Sunday lunch:

SO DARN GOOD! And right on track with not taking my health for granted right? Smile

But seriously, an occasional burger isn’t going to kill me. And with quality local ingredients, who needs a stinkin’ bun?

Not me! I enjoyed the above beauty at Mattie B’s Public House, a new restaurant in South Durham (Southie D). If you haven’t had pimento cheese on your burger, try it! Right away! Cool, Creamy, and oh so good.


I also LOVE that I get to go to ZUMBA TONIGHT and work off a little bit of that bacon!

I did attend two Zumba classes while I had vertigo but I couldn’t give it my all. I’m excited to really exercise tonight. Plus it’s a Halloween Zumba party! Can’t wait to share photos of my costume with you all tomorrow!

Happy Monday!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who sent me sweet comments, emails, and messages while I had vertigo! I LOVE you all!
