To Paris and back
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
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
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
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 ... 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
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
Light at the end of the tunnel?
Well, last month I was still dealing with the intercostal rib strain--turned out I had also strained my rectus abdominus muscles (they run vertically from under the rib cage to the pubic bone) when my back had gone out back in August, and I was ... Read more
I know there's a lot to be said for non-scale victories. However, I want to crow a bit about my scale victory today. I finally have made it 25% of the way to my weight-loss goal! I have a lot of weight to lose...a smidge over 100 pounds. However... Read more
Back from vacation
I just got back from the most amazing trip. I spent two weeks on the West Coast, exploring Seattle, then taking a cruise to Alaska and Canada. I saw things I'd never seen before, like the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass, beer brewed with spruce tips... Read more
Not even an hour after I made my last post, I went to clean up some cat vomit under my desk. (I know, not a pretty thing.) I threw my back out as a result. I spent all day Sunday in an inordinate amount of pain. I have degenerative disk disease,... Read more
So it's eleven days since my last post. Updating my health issues here so I can keep tabs.
Stomach: The ulcer med is working. I got the script filled. However, with this I've gained a couple of pounds back. Not worrying about it though, esp... Read more
One week later
So, it's been a week since I've seen the doctor. I'm happy to report that the ulcer med seems to be helping. I'm starting to feel better there...still have a ways to go, but don't feel as rotten.
I also feel much better with the rib strain.... Read more
Went to the doctor this morning.
I decided to go to the doctor about all of the stomach issues I've been having. The official diagnosis is still gastritis, but the doctor suspects I may have a small tear in my stomach lining, so she'll treat it as if it's an ulcer in the hope t... Read more
Food poisoning aftermath
Just so you know, getting food poisoning is not the best way to jumpstart weight loss, but I will take it. Since my episode two weeks ago, I've lost four pounds...mostly from not eating as much. My appetite has curbed quite a bit, and I still ha... Read more
The last three weeks...
have been a big cosmic joke on me. In terms of health, anyway.
First off, I strained my right hamstring. Then went to visit family in Florida over the Independence Day holiday and got food poisoning. (Ciguatera poisoning, from grouper, if i... Read more
