Blessing in Disguise?

So, looks like I'm dealing with Gastroparesis as well as acid reflux. UGH! I'm limiting my fat to 40 grams daily and fiber to 10-15 grams daily. Hopefully, this will get my nausea and vomiting under control. I'm also eating several mini meals th... Read more

This is the Year!

Well today I started using the Nutrition tracker again. Sometimes I forget that it is the best tool out there for monitoring & controlling eating habits. My weight gain over the Holidays was minimal so I'm happy about that! I'm determined to rea... Read more

Mediterranean Struggles

Saturday, October 03, 2015      12 comments

So, I'm supposed to limit my red meat to one serving a month. Since I'm not a meat fan, I thought this would be relatively easy... not so! The "natural" lunch meat I bought for my hubby the other day was surprisingly delicious. UGH! I think some... Read more

Mediterranean Musings

Life Lessons

This has been a really hard, depressing week. Our old cat, Butters, has been to the Vet several times this week (twice just for hydration). He is on antibiotics, anti vomiting/nausea med, steroid, appetite stimulant, and a pain patch. He is drin... Read more

Plans Change

It's often said that "change is the only constant in life". We had planned a getaway for this weekend but our old cat, Butters, was obviously not feeling well. We took him to the Cat Doc yesterday and it appears that his pancreatitis has flared ... Read more

A Chill is in the Air

Saturday, September 05, 2015      6 comments

It is afternoon here in Boise and the temp remains in the 50's. I really do love the cooler weather but sometimes it is hard to adjust from the high 80's to the high 40's in just a few days. Welcome to Idaho! On the other hand, I really like the... Read more

Fall is in the Air (and smoke!)

Friday, August 28, 2015      9 comments

We have been under a hazardous air quality warning for almost 2 weeks now due to the smoke from multiple statewide (Idaho) fires. UGH! Luckily, I do not have to go outside too often. The air is improving, though, and my hubby and I have resumed ... Read more
