Starting over
Saturday, April 22, 2017      5 comments

Well, I've now had another round of three epidural steroid injections in my lower back (L5-S1), and it's just been in the last week and a half I've been able to walk without limping. I did have a cervical MRI done--I've had some tingling in both... Read more
Time for change

Starting over from a different place. I re-injured my back in November, and have had another round of oral steroids. Also more muscle relaxers, all to tide me over until I can see my neurosurgeon...in March. (Not happy about that, let me just sa... Read more

Ten years

(I keep hearing Jeremy Piven in my head, when he's driving John Cusack around in Grosse Pointe Blank: "Ten years. Ten years! TEN. YEARS. Teeeeeeeeennnnnn yeeeeeeeaaaaarrrrrsss!") So, this month marks my ten-year "sparkiversary"…I've been a ... Read more

Been nearly a year since I last made a post. Since then, my health has pretty much completely gone off the rails. Re-injured my back last May, but in July I really wrecked it. My husband and I moved house (local move) and I herniated my disk at ... Read more

Amazing changes in the last couple of weeks.

Today, we completed another 10-mile walk, our last before the half marathon on April 19. We improved on our time by over five minutes! I'm pretty pleased with that. Also pleased that I kept up a consistent pace the entire 10 miles, as opposed to... Read more
One step forward, one step back.

I sometimes feel like I'm in some sort of loop I can't get out of. We got back from Disney, and bam! I'm sick again. I struggled with an upper respiratory something-or-other for a week, then went to the doctor last Monday. It's a sinus infection... Read more
This year so far has been a blur.
Sunday, March 08, 2015      2 comments

Started the new year off with a bang--came down with the flu. Yes, I'd had the flu shot--was around a newborn at Christmas, and wanted to help with his immunity. I also had gotten the adult pertussis vaccine for the same reason. However, both my... Read more
To Paris and back
Saturday, November 29, 2014      2 comments

So right before Halloween, my husband and I went to Paris. Not for anything exciting: he was there for two work conferences; I went along for the ride. I did get the opportunity to get a lot of walking in, though! Climbed to the top of the Arc d... Read more
Stepped into stupid
Thursday, October 16, 2014      1 comments

I am pretty sure that I'm currently in the middle of a fatty liver flare-up. (I was diagnosed with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in 2012.) Since we moved out to the beach in June, I've been eating all the wrong things. I also discovered some... Read more
Lots of changes
Monday, August 18, 2014      1 comments

I realized I haven't posted in several months. I'll be honest, I fell off the SP wagon. I got married, I moved 200 miles to a tourist destination, and have been trying to find a new job while setting up a new household. And my new husband has be... Read more
Times, they are a-changing
Thursday, March 13, 2014      3 comments

Big changes are on the horizon. I'm getting married next month…looking forward to getting out of town for our destination wedding. And in a twist of fate, our plans to move later on this year got moved up by three months--the landlord gave us a ... Read more
Big changes on the horizon

It's now 2014, and the time of year to make resolutions. I don't like resolutions since a lot of times they fall by the wayside. All I can do is do my best. --I really want this year to be the one where I lose some serious weight. My goal ... Read more
Weekend binge
Tuesday, November 05, 2013      1 comments

So, Halloween happened. And then I went to visit friends in Cleveland for the weekend, where they had a belated Halloween party. I fell off the mainly plant-based wagon. Especially in the dairy department. I gorged on cheesy pizza, ice cream, ca... Read more
