Reflections of 2015

2015 is about to end and I realise I’ve been extremely bad when it comes to writing in my blog. I’m exceptionally good at posting Instagram pictures though! 🙂 Yesterday I used a feature where I could find my 9 most liked posts of 2015, as well as get a little history of total likes for the year and how many images I’ve posted. I guess there is no surprise that all 9 images are of food and that 7 of 9 contains eggs. 😉

2015 has been a great year… we’ve travelled to Amsterdam, Prague and Nerja (Spain), I’ve turned 40 and enjoyed fantastic celebrations from family and friends and most importantly I’ve worked quite hard in the gym to strengthen my joints throughout the Fall together with a trainer. I promised myself before 2015 that I would focus on healthy food and exercise during 2015 and that has gone well without to many obstacles. I’m really proud of myself for going to the gym after a long day at work despite fatigue and joint pain.

As far as my work life goes I’m still working in the “train factory” and liking it a lot. I’ve taken on more responsibilities during the past year and have grown and feel more comfortable in my new role. I’ve worked almost 8 years as a configuration manager now but have really never thought of myself as “senior”. I’m quite eager to fill in these new shoes and see what will happen during 2016 and how much more I can grown. For several years now I’ve kept a mindmap of what I want to learn and what goals I have and I’m happy that I’ve been able to cross many of them off during the year. I’ve also added a few new exciting challenges to the list.

The not so fun part of 2015 is how it ends (and unfortunately how 2016 will start). Okay maybe I’m too dramatic now but I’m not feeling good in my hip and for the past month I’ve had to take it easy with my exercises and for the past 2 weeks I’ve not been able to go to the gym at all. I have to admit that I do miss going to the gym! 😉 After my cortisone shot in the hip in the beginning of December I was really hopeful in getting back on track again, but the cortisone shot has not helped and I’m in pain more or less all the time and the painkillers rarely work. I have a hard time sitting, standing and laying down. I sleep quite bad and wake up around 4-5 am and it’s impossible to go back to sleep due to the pain. Obviously I’m so tired later in the day that I usually crash on the sofa and sleep for a bit. I’m not good when it comes to setting still and not do anything as that is when all the exciting things I can do pops up in my head. 😦 Oh well, soon I will be able to get a new cortisone shot and I’m also scheduled for a talk with my doctor in two weeks and I hope he gives me a go for a new IV session. I definitely think it is time again…

I wish everyone a Happy New 2016 and I hope I will be better when it comes to writing in my blog. 🙂
