packing on the pounds

I said it wouldn't happen... but I think it is happening.
everybody told me that I would gain weight after the wedding.
I told everybody that I already had my fat phase and I was done with it.
it may be a small increase [3-4 lbs] I have experienced my weight going up.

I have also had a long time injury experiencing a flare up.
for as long as I can remember I have had an issue with my wrist.
it always comes and goes and has never been as painful as this time around.
this was not a Crossfit injury, but the workouts certainly didn't help.
today marks two weeks out of the gym and I am feeling the effects.
I'm tired, I'm lazy, I'm bloated, I have headaches.

I have been wearing this crazy brace and on pain killers for the last two weeks.
but yesterday was the first day I didn't wear the brace, and it seems okay.
I need to make an appointment with an Orthopedic Specialist,
but until then I am heading back into the gym.
I am returning to modified Crossfit workouts on Saturday.
I couldn't be more excited about it.

if you have read yesterday's post you will also notice a new diet in my life.
I am trying out a Paleo-ish diet, with a main focus on just treating my body better.
the majority of my meals will be Paleo, but every now and then a girl needs a potato!

I will keep you posted with my failures and successes, and of course recipes!
