CRPS and all


Am feeling much happier about splitting the blog up into two parts now, remember if you want to be added to the private blog, email me at hippygalnz@xtra.co.nz :). It will be nice to dedicate this whole blog to CRPS now rather than CRPS and personal stuff. 

I am getting back into the business properly this/next week, I need to. I have to admit the pain has been much worse since the nails have started, but I enjoy it I am not going to give it up, when theres a will theres a way. I make sure I wear the splint each night now which is helping, I have the tens machine there to use if some days are worse, coming into winter the CRPS is always worse. I find for me having wind blowing or a fan blowing directly on my wrists etc tend to trigger of the pain as well. 

I am also on a mission to lose weight I have gained so much since the CRPS, but especially since I had the pushbike accident. I know losing weight wont get rid of the CRPS but I do know it will really help with many other things :)

Anyway will prob only update here every week or two, depending on how life is treating me, take care all and try and stay as pain free as possible :)

A little change a happening...


But first of where the hell did the last 4 weeks go, maybe I have been asleep for the last 4 weeks and have just woken up, cause I am sure as hell I wasn't awake for these weeks. But seriously and I know we hear it again and again from everyone, how can this year be going so fast..... 

Our holiday in June will be here before I know it, and then it will be over before I know it lol.

Ok onto the change, I am setting up another blog, for now it will be private so if you want to be part of it email me please at hippygalnz@xtra.co.nz - why I hear you ask when I can not even keep up to date on this one well thats because this one is mainly suppose to be about CRPS, as I have many people that find it through the CRPS website page or Facebook page, I would like to keep this one for CRPS alone. I have limited posting in here about other stuff and hey not necessarily bad, just personal stuff that I would like to talk about but does not really fit in a CRPS blog if you get what I mean. 

So give me a few days to set this blog up, and I will get back to you for invites, ok maybe a week, I should be ready a book today for Uni that I have to do an essay on. I will be changing this one around as well :)

So thats my huge ok little exciting news for now :)

A bit of a let down....


I was hoping by some miracle that out there in the world, there would be a permanent purple hair colour, yes I know there are ones with purples in it, but not the purple I wanted - this then meant I was not going to have the purple/red hair colour in the picture below, well not now anyway....

So instead we went rather conservative. we just added a couple of black streaks in it, and gave it a good chop. But low and behold, I am not one to get down over this, so in a few days when it arrives I am going to add a pastel turquoise colour through it. It won't be dark like the pink I went once before but will just be nice and light and pretty. 

So here it is, this has not been styled or anything just washed and a quick blow-dry. 


So though I felt a little sad, I know it will look really nice with a soft colour through it :)

Anyway onto other things, after my haircut, I had lunch with my dad that was nice, Steph also came with us, so that was extra nice, cause as the kids get older they tend to see less and less of the grandparents for a few years. 

A bit of a bitch session coming up - why do people bullshit, well we know why but hey if you are going to then maybe cover all your bases so you don't get caught out. It wasn't even a huge thing, but come on if you are a true friend, then why not tell the whole truth, ok bitch session done. Well thats was short, I am no longer going to allow things like this annoy for any length of time, I vow and declare from this day onwards, negativity is not going to stay with me for long periods of time, yes I will swear and curse for a bit, but then I will move on and forward :)

But seriously the last few days has been a little up and down, first of Chris and his girlfriend have split up after a year and a half, and its hard as mother that I can not really do anything to help him with the pain, as I said to him it is part of growing up and there will be sad times but also many happy times. and all I can say is that each day it will get a smidgin easier for him. But for some reason today for the first time in I don't know how long, I have actually woken up happy about where I am in my life right now and where it is heading. Yes the nail business is struggling with issues with the wrist and pain and though I felt like giving up, I am now enjoying the challenge I am getting from it and the passion is so high that there is no way I am going to allow this to beat me down.

Today I really feel like life is only going to get better now, and that I can cope with the challenges, and with people like above  who lie etc..., I will put them in the background for now and focus on the strong friendships I have with the true friends  You know what I do believe, is that 2015 is going to be the year that things change for the better. I am also keeping in touch with some cousins in Holland now and it is so nice to be involved with the family, though we are many miles apart, i feel like I am part of the family if you get what I mean. 

So yip for now life is pretty good, and you know what there are going to be many more days when I wake up and think yip I am in a happy place and I love the life I have right now :)

Weigh Innnnn.....


On Wednesday I am getting my haircut, after narrowing it done to these four.... I and Facebook buddies decided to go with


the first cut with the colour of the third one... so no more blonde for maybe forever, not sure if I ever want to go through the process of bleach again. So roll on Wednesday, then I will get my passport photos done, as my passport is due to expire at the end of the month.

Ok onto other things - weigh in gained 300 grams, not pissed off, not annoyed in fact happy with that. Many factors but main one ate a few to many carbs, not a lot just enough to have a gain. I was thinking of joining a gym but have decided not to, I won't keep motivated to keep going, I have legs that work so I will continue with walking, and maybe try the Exercycle again, and have a swiss ball so the money could be better spent on the business or spending money for Aussie, speaking of Aussie only 127 days to go :).

Last weekend was a long weekend here, on Friday had a look around Fairy Springs, was ok, did a youtube of it if you want to have a nosey.... (The weigh in result mentioned is for the week before, I was just late putting it up)


The weather was just about perfect for me with CRPS.... not to hot or muggy just right :)



On Saturday we went to Taupo, I had purchased an efile for work so wanted to pick that up, will make doing acrylics so much easier on my wrists. Speaking of work not sure if I mentioned I took a couple of weeks off nails as my wrists were sore and was having a few issues, hence why the purchase of the efile. But hope to be back into it next week.
We had not been to Taupo for about a year, no reason I love it there and didn't realise how much I missed the place.... and they have the best Vanilla Coconut Thick-shakes at 'Dixie Browns' - well there you have it, thats 300 grams just there lol.



Whats not to love about Taupo.... a fantastic lake, plenty to do, mountains only 1 1/2 hour drive away if into snow.... 

 
So there you have it, another few days in the life of me...., will do a photo of the hair after it is done on Wednesday, scary such a big change, though I have had it dark before it was such a mission to go blonde, I am lucky that I can go any colour with my hair with my colour skin. 

Take care all and stay safe :)

Weigh Day


Weighed in today and lost 2.3 kilos this week, can't complain about that :)

Wheat free eating is going pretty good, walking was a bit of well a lot of a fail last week...no real excuses.

Nail business, taking a break for a week or so, wrist swelled up and really sore, so in a splint for a bit, swelling is going down, so I need to wear a splint when not doing nails. If I can keep the swelling down, the pain decreases.

New week, pain is decreasing, walks will be had, got new nails today, I wanted these:


But after trying to do it with gel polish (most of the tutorials are done with nail polish) we gave up until next time, we also need to find a tutorial on how to do it with gel polish, it is called sugar spun nail art, we opted for this, we being my educator/nail tech and me. I do not do my own nails anymore just to hard lol


So am happy with these, maybe we will have another try with the other picture next time, oh and also I am wanting to change the shape and going for coffin shape nails which look like this, love this shape :)


So there we have it, February is here already, where January went, I am not sure, maybe I slept through it all, it went so bloody fast. This month is birthday month for our family, my sister, my dad, myself, and Jaimee (my niece) all have birthdays. No presses though, we don't buy presents anymore now we are all grown up.

Have a great few days/week all - see you soon and stay safe :)
