Thanks for the blog comment. It can be discouraging, but if I dont watch closely, I start to gain instead of lose then get so discouraged I quit. Its a fine balance, isnt it?

I think I added a friend or two on Fitbit a while ago, so I'll dig around and see if I figure it out again. I want to say I needed an email address? I believe I still have yours, so be on the lookout!

There are a bunch of places that offer massages locally. So, they're all trying to attract business. I've been thinking of getting a deep tissue massage. Even though I get up and walk around when I can, sitting for 8-9 hours a day isn't helping my joints.

the nice thing about 5ks is that there is no pressure to complete in a certain time. they're all about having fun.

I don't think I've ever had pollock before. What kind of fish is it? I finally got some groceries, too, and it feels nice to have a well stocked pantry and refrigerator. Now to get that kitchen cleaned up...

I used to take Zyrtec and it really worked well for me, but over time, it stopped working altogether. I tried Allegra and another one (I can't remember the name of it!) and they were too weak to work. I can't take Claritin- it makes me feel worse than just suffering from allergy symptoms! So, I'm currently on Singulair and it's supposed to work for both my allergies and asthma. Plus, I take two inhaled steroids for my asthma. I also have allergy drops the immunologist gave me. And now the weekly shots. I'm serious when I say this, it is completely because I live here. This area is literally detrimental to my health.
