Another Doctor, More Tests
So, I saw an internist today. He was a very nice doctor. He thinks that nothing serious is wrong with me, and that I have a simple case of IBS. However, he is sending me for a blood test to look for celiac or inflammation, as well as an occult b... Read more

Drink Calories O.O
So, over the past couple months at Starbucks, I've gotten into the habit of drinking a lot of sugary drinks, as well as the leftovers of frappuccinos. I wasn't tracking the calories, but I'm sure it was a lot. Today, I drank what I felt like was... Read more

I was supposed to work 8-4:30 today, but I had to leave at one because I had a migraine so bad I couldn't function. It was one of the worst ones I've had. I came home, took a hot bath, ran a hot shower for the steam (that always seems to help fo... Read more

Goals for 2013
So, let's see...last time I blogged I weighed in at 160 and the lowest I had been down to was 158. I think my weight may be up around 160 right now, but mostly just because I've eaten poorly the last couple day, have eaten a lot of sodium, not ... Read more
My First 5K and Other Things

A Marathon? Me?
