Little bits of my week, oh and a funny naked selfie story.

So I almost wasn't going to write a post for today. I am getting tired of sounding like a broken record because of the back pain I am in. Luckily I have my next Dr. Appt on Thursday and I can't tell you how excited I am about that. So to reduce the risk of sounding like a broken record, that's all I am going to say to that.

I did try to push past some of the back pain earlier last week and tried to get light workouts in.  I have found if I am moving at a certain level the back seems to allow me to do it.
I even got 10,000 steps in on Tuesday, and I haven't pushed through to do that in a while, it felt good.

I gave a few mini workouts a go earlier in the week, but by the end of the week the inflammation was too bad so I didn't get anything in on Thursday- Saturday.
But hey, it's a start and a little is better than none!

I am trying to look to the positive about having to lay around a little way too much. The positive is, I've been reading some GREAT books lately. Catching up on some recommendations that others have given me. I realized this morning, I've already read 5 novels this year and it's only the 11th. I am telling myself to enjoy it while I can!

I do have a funny story to share.
I was working at a library the other day, and I was checking a book a gal had dropped through a book drop. (We can't see on the other side of the wall.) I noticed an envelope in it, so I pulled it out. It was a Walmart photo envelope.
But it felt thin, so I thought I'd open it just to see if it was just papers and I could toss it.
Imagine my surprise when I saw some girls naked selfie pics.
I literally yelled YIKES and threw them down, LOL

Yes everyone, WORST IDEA EVER FOR A BOOK MARK!! Do not use your NAKED SELFIE PICS as a bookmark. Because everyone forgets to remove their bookmarks!
I tried calling the girl, to let her know she left her pictures. I thought that would be a fun awkward conversation for her, LOL (Yeah, doesn't bother me to put people in an awkward position, apparently, LOL)
But she didn't answer.
I am curious if she will actually come to get them. My guess is yes, because anyone who would take them and then get them developed, likely wanted them, LOL
I taped the envelope shut to avoid additional prying eyes, LOL.

She's just lucky I am not a FB bully. Because I guarantee if those got into the wrong hands. Or if I didn't find them, and some teen found them in the book when they checked it out next. They would show up on someones FB page as a laugh.  So that girl is definitely lucky it was me who found them. Of course, I don't consider myself lucky, I really wished I hadn't opened the envelope to be honest. But either way, it was funny!

SUCCESS
Last, I have been working on some diet changes. Major diet changes, which I will tell you about another time. But to point to this past weeks successes they are:
* I haven't drank a Pepsi or any soda in 7 days.
* I have been eating SO much healthier for 7 days now.
* I lost 5 pounds last week.
YAY, me, I have a long way to go, but it's a start!!!

I wish I had more to share, but that about does it. I know, I am leading a desperately dull life right now. But I have faith that after Thursday things will change on that front!
Because all this beautiful snow outside, has me wanting to go play in it!

I also just noticed this is my 600th blog post! Wow, that's a lot of writing!


I am linking up with HoHo Runs and Mississippididdlin today for their Weekly Wrap!





What was the funniest thing that happened to you last week?

    The things people do & have no shame in.
    I cant believe you've read 5 books already - I'm so impressed.
    Hoping you get some relief & answers soon for your back!

  9. Oh that's hilarious! I haven't used a bookmark in so long. If I read a physical book now, it's hardcover, so I use the cover flap to mark my page.

  10. OMG that girl is SO lucky you are taking care of her "selfies"....lol. Hopefully that will teach her a lesson.
    Yay for you on giving up the Pepsi!

    ReplyDelete
  11. That is hilarious!! Even though I'd be mortified, I'd go pick them up. Sure don't want those ending up in the wrong hands! Hopefully she learned her lesson. 5 lbs?! Woohoo!! So exciting!

  12. Yikes, that's a funny story about the selfie bookmark! I hope that she's grateful when she comes in and has learned a lesson.

    Honestly naked selfies as a bookmark?!?! I hope you get some answers about your back soon!

  14. Soda is no joke! Not surprising you lost that much weight after cutting it out! Way to go!! Is it the carbonation that you like or just the taste? I have a friend who uses a SodaStream now and it has worked wonders for her. Hilarious about the naked selfies, people never cease to amaze me!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Lol yes that is exactly why people shouldn't take those!!!!
    Thank you though! I am sorry you've had back issues to, they are definitely no fun!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lol glad you enjoyed the laugh:)
    Thanks Lauren!!!

  17. Lol yes definitely reason #5372 as why not to take naked pics!!!!!! People never cease to amaze me...
    Thanks! I am definitely hoping to share some good news on that too!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks MB!
    I know seriously, people never cease to amaze me at the stuff they do, and sometimes like this not in a good way lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. I know huh!
    I haven't tried swimming but I am so tight from the inflammation and I can't put my arms up so i doubt it will work right now. I did run Monday and it didn't hurt it worse so that is good. But hopefully tomorrow they can get the swelling and inflammation down so I can get active again!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lol if I hadn't been laying around trying not to inflame my back more I'd likely not even be 1 book Lol.
    Lol yup apparently people do still develop pictures who knew lol.

  21. It was gross but totally funny at the same time. People really do have no shame! I know a gal who used to do wedding photography but found taking classy partial nudes o husband and wives for portraits is apparently a big seller. I am shocked sometimes with the film shoots she does. I only tell you because I know you do photography too. I have half tempted to tell her it sounds like porn, but I don't want to offend her. She has been a good friend.

  22. Lol she really is Lucky I found them instead of someone else. She was reading a popular teen book so I can only imagine what some high school kid could have done with them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lol I know huh. I need to go check the drawer today and see if she picked them up. I am curious :)
    Thanks I am pretty sure its from the lack of Pepsi but I will take it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know we got a good laugh from it. I will have to check and see if she ever picks them up lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know, does that right!
    Thanks, I hope so too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh ya that Pepsi has led to more extra pounds than I care to admit. But now 11 days in without its getting easier. Sadly I love the taste and carbonation but I love ice cold water and with winter its helping with that since all water is ice cold right now:)
    but yes the selfie thing gross but hilarious I have no idea what goes through some peoples minds though.

  27. Congrats on your 600th blog post! I totes giggled when I read the story about the naked selfie bookmark. That poor girl. Lol!

    I love your positive attitude throughout the pain and injury. You're absolutely right that a little is better than none! Glad the break has helped you catch up on your reading :)

    What??? Naked selfies! That story is way too funny, I can only imagine you calling her to tell her too! I sure needed that laugh. Yes the lesson here is do not use your naked pictures as a bookmark! Bahahaha!


    Awesome job on the weightloss and 600 blog post! Oh wow!!! It does not surprise me though you have the experience and it's no wonder with that many posts under your belt!


    I'm super excited for you doing another Grow your blog hop too! :)

  29. Five pounds in one week is incredible KW! You should be proud. And you not drinking a Pepsi is like me not drinking coffee -- no can do, by the way. So you are stronger than me! I'm trying to imagine what type of person develops her naked pics and then uses them as a bookmark. I'm not coming up with much here. I obviously live in another dimension. I hope your doctor's appointment went well and your back pain is getting better. I think it is very encouraging you were able to move around more this past week. I appreciate you linking with us Kristy!

  30. Thanks!
    Oh ya, I was laughing pretty hard that day when I saw what came out of the book:)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Glad to provide you with a good laugh:) I laughed pretty good myself that day, not the wisest choice for a bookmark that is for sure:)
    Thanks Tricia!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks, I really think it was mostly the lack of sugar, but I'll take it, less pounds is always a good thing to me!
    LOL, yeah I laughed pretty hard, that was a first for me and I've seen some interesting bookmarks before:)
