I have decided to start another blog. This will be my third now - I am definitely addicted to blogging. Being socially inept as I sometimes am, I have trouble expressing my emotions and thoughts aloud to other people. I love that blogging lets me express what I have to say without the anxiety of having to get it out right on the first try. I think "edit" is my new favorite word!
However, I don't plan on leaving The Act of Discovery behind unless you, my readers, move on. As long as one of you is still following me, I'll keep posting. I still want to keep thinking and learning about ways to be healthier, and my new blog really isn't the place for that.
I went to the doctor this past Tuesday to have my knee checked out (finally!). My doc made it clear that I would one day need knee surgery, but that a combination of naproxen, icing/heating, and coritsone injections would be able to put off surgery for quite a few years. She also told me not to gain any weight, because each added pound would bring surgery from the distant future to the near future. She did say I was a bit overweight, but not "excessively", which was nice to hear. I even weighed in on their scale, fully clothed, at 200 pounds! And while I was happy to see that number, it didn't give me an emotional high. I think I've finally let go of the importance I used to assign to the scale. It's a lovely feeling of freedom.
I should also say that my ex and I decided to get back together a couple of weeks ago. I didn't want to say anything until I was sure it was real, haha, but it is! I'm overjoyed, and making sure that I don't let my love for him overshadow my love for myself. The long distance helps a bit with that, and I've also been trying to be more open with him about what I need/want. Things are already better for me, and I'm much more comfortable with where I am emotionally than I was before. I'm glad we had that little break, but now I'm really looking forward to our future together. Unless I move across or out of the country, I don't see us ever leaving each other again. : )
So, go check out my new blog if you like! It is being hosted by WordPress, because I'm a total theme whore and they have a way bigger selection than Blogger. <.< But I hope you'll subscribe anyway, if you like what you read.
Peace out, lovelies.
