I started out the week unable to hear anything out of my right ear. The docs on call doctor said it was as if I had been flying or as if I had just driven through the mountains. I said, “I know – now what can you do about it?” I had no cold, maybe a slight ear infection, no congestion.” It was weird. I was on an antibiotic, but if I walked right past you this week and you said, hi – chances are I never heard you.
On Monday morning we met with Suzanne for our semi-private NLP session at Golds. Leave it to Suzanne to come up with new exercises to us. After this workout, I went and met with Ryan and went over my schedule for the week and my eating from the past week. Monday evening I went and did 45 minutes of Kickboxing.
On Tuesday morning we met with Suzanne again for our semi-private NLP. Then I came back to Golds at 5:00 p.m. with Nancy and Tori for a workout with Semaj. We did the rower, the sled, wall balls and the ropes for 30 minutes. This was us after 30 minutes. They absolutely love when I take their picture – especially with the sweat dripping off of our faces.

We then moved on to Jacob’s Ladder, planking and TRX rows for the last 30 minutes. I grabbed a shake, ran home, changed shirts and picked up my neigbor Kate and we headed to Core Wellness in the Park. This has turned out to be a really fun time with a new group of friends and we are all enjoying it. My friend made this photo collage from the night. The instructor Robyn was standing on my feet while I did sit ups and she kept trying to get a picture and it would never take at the right time. So I sat up and held until she got a good picture. It makes me smile every time I see it.

Wednesday all I needed to do was 30 minutes of Cardio on my own and then I did 100 pullups (because we haven’t done them since Ryan left Golds). I headed home after that to spend the day with my husband as we celebrated 25 years of marriage.
Thursday – MARS (Martial Arts Research Systems) said we could bring a friend for free to Kickboxing. I asked how many friends can I bring? As many as I’d like. So on Thursday, I worked out with Semaj again at Golds from 5-6 and then hightailed it down to MARS to Kickboxing with my friends. They appeased me and posed for a picture afterwards. It was dress up night for Halloween and that is why Ryan is in costume. (Sorry I forgot to tell you all about the cardio in between rounds and the ab workout at the end. oops.)

I had gone back to the doctor on Thursday and seen my doctor. She told me to take a prescription nose spray, a Claritin, a Pepcid (antacid – but it has antihistamine in it) and Motrin. She said take them all at once. That worked. I am 95% better now. So I should be able to hear you at the gym now.
I truly am thankful for all of my friends!
