it’s been a little quieter this past week on the blog, and i apologize. we’ve been working hard finalizing a project i mentioned in my last post and i can’t wait to tell you more about it once i am able! i am the worst at keeping secrets, so this has been the hardest! but once it’s all ready, you can bet i’ll be sharing it here first!
i have an MRI scheduled today for my knee and i am so terribly nervous. has anyone ever had one before? any tips for calming myself down and making it less nerve-racking? i know i’m jumping in this photo which might appear misleading with saying my knee hurts, but when has anything ever kept me down from a jumping pic? ;) the back of my right knee has been giving me a hard time for the last month or two when i straighten or tighten my leg or try to sit criss-crossed. i feel like i have a high tolerance for pain so it’s surprised me how foreign it feels to have such severe and constant pain in one place. they aren’t entirely sure what the source might be, which is why i’m going to have it looked at this way. having danced my entire life, i feel really lucky i’ve never had any injuries that have kept me down for long, so this is the first time i’ve experienced something that just doesn’t seem to be healing or correcting itself. i swear, after you turn 30 everything hurts and doesn’t stop hurting. lol. these past few years have been fascinating for me with navigating my body and all the changes that seem to be going on.
we have a busy weekend planned and this autumn weather is making me want some apple cider and a trip to the pumpkin patch. i completed my 30 day no sugar challenge on the 9th and i’ve held strong with not bringing diet coke back into my life which is a big deal for me. going to try to keep sugar in moderation but fully keep away from the diet coke. unless i’m in utah and near a swig. ;) which, full disclosure, is happening next weekend while we’re out west, so you know. maybe i’m looking forward to that more than christmas right now.
i can’t wait to share more photos soon from our new apartment with you guys. i’m going to hop onto insta stories this weekend and show you guys some videos of what our kitchen (or lack of kitchen, ha!) looks like right now, so if you’re interested in seeing it in its current state, stay tuned on my instagram video stories.
i hope everyone has an amazing weekend! i walked by kate mckinnon on the street yesterday here on the upper west side and i’m taking it as a sign that autumn in the city is gonna be a good one this year!
