Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some ...
Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some days. Slow and steady wins the race, though.

My other big health challenge is, obviously, my weight. As of this morning {6/13/14}, I weigh 268.2 by my home scale. That's down 23 lbs from my all time highest weight of 291. I've been stuck in pretty much the same weight range for a couple years, but I'm ready and motivated to get the scale going the right way.

I think that covers the basics about me. If anyone has any questions, just ask!

Oh yeah that Monks' tea is really good. Even younger daughter who does not like tea loves it. We still don't know where she came from. We used to go to this burger place in Delaware where they charbroil everything and hubby, me, son and oldest daughter would all order burgers and milkshakes (sadly not for me anymore) and younger daughter would get a grilled cheese and a coke because she did not (and still does not) eat red meat or drink milk. I had a heck of a time getting her to eat anything when she was little. Pizza and pasta was about all she liked. No PB&J because she did not (and still does not) like peanut butter. What kid does not like PB&J? Now she is a vegetarian (and she did not eat ANY veggies as a kid) but eats them now and tofu and all kinds of stuff. She will drink almond milk.

I am going to get my haircut today after the gym. I just got back from taking my son to see my brother in law who is our dentist....well my hubby's and mine but not the kids. They had a local dentist who recently retired so my son went to see the new dentist two weeks ago and all of a sudden he needs three caps and the new dentist kept talking about what great dental insurance we had. So I was a bit suspicious. I asked my oldest daughter who is also a dentist but she lives 2 hours from us and she said she would have to see son's X-rays so we went to get the second opinion from my BIL who said yes son does need at least two caps. emoticon

So now I am heading off to the gym and then to get my hair cut by son's girlfriend.

Have a wonderful workout today!!!! I will let you know about the tea. I just have to order it but it had 5 star rating on the website and good reviews. emoticon

I got used to drinking my coffee black years ago when I worked in the hospital. No time to look for sugar or milk back then. It did not even have to be hot, just a caffeine boost. I used to make my tea really sweet and now can't and never liked flavored teas but got used to it and now really like different kinds, although not partial to fruit flavored teas. Younger daughter's ex boyfriend brought us back some tea from France that was so good. Monk's tea. Black tea flavored with vanilla and grenadine. I finally found the maker of those tea bags online but no longer making that flavor. emoticon BUT I did find a company online in Pittsburgh who has that flavor tea only not teabags, loose tea. I think I will order some.

Rainy day here today and zero motivation to do any work but have to push myself otherwise it will pile up. Should push myself right there now!!

Hope you are having a great Hump Day!!!
