Flower Power


I am currently obsessed with floral prints. Perhaps it's the spring weather, but it seems everything I've purchased or looked at purchasing recently has a flower print. In fact, I just realized I have a dress scheduled to arrive tomorrow that is all flowers. Not sure if it's a phase or not, but I like the ultra-femininity of floral prints. I pulled out this dress from my last Gwynnie Bee box and thought it was perfect for spring: ASOS Curve Continue Reading

Working it Out

Emmie in the gym

I haven't done a gym video in forever! It was a light class (as far as # of people) on Thursday, so it was a good time to get some film. I wrote last week about crying in physical therapy out of frustration and while some of it is still furstrating, in 5 short visits with my new PT, I have made more progress than I have in the past 8 months combined, including 3 months with another physical therapist. There were a couple times this week where I Continue Reading

I scoured the internet and pulled over 20 of my favorite plus size swimsuit Continue Reading

No Crying in Physical Therapy


From one of my favorite movies: Friday I went to my third session with my new physical therapist and cried not once, but twice! I was trying to snap out of it and this part of "A League of Their Own" kept popping into my head. "There's no crying in PT!" I told myself. This isn't my first rodeo at PT. I went pre-surgery for several months during year 2 of the ankle saga. I then went post-surgery for 3 months. I continued to do most Continue Reading
