Someone to watch over me

Sloppy jeans, sinuses and Miley Cyrus sledgehammers

Marsha nose
Marsha, Marsha, Marsha ... I feel your pain. No, I didn't get hit in the face by a football, but my nose has been getting in the way of my workouts the past week or so.

I don't know if it's the change in humidity or a sinus infection or what, but I've been having nosebleeds a few times a week now and IT'S GETTING OLD. (Yes, I'm getting it looked at tomorrow, right after my mammogram. Multitasking!)

Miley, get away from me with that thing!

I haven't been aggravating the situation so my workouts have basically been walking and more walking, when I don't feel like someone's hitting me in the face with a sledgehammer. I was reading up on what not to do and two of the suggestions were:

  • "Don't lift anything heavy."
  • "Don't bend over."

Kinda rules out strength training, huh?

To get around this, I think I'm going to switch to resistance bands until I can get my nose cauterized or something. (I feel like a hockey player.)

In other weight-loss news, my favorite two pairs of jeans are looking mighty baggy in the midsection and I may have to retire them. There is some serious tightening up going on in my core and those jeans are not doing me any favors. They're also extremely comfortable (probably because they are basically floating around me now.)

That problem I can deal with.
