Bad News Made Good!
I had my bloodwork done last month, and followed up with my family doctor. He tells me my thyroid levels are down, meaning my meds need increased. I had just told my husband the same thing a couple weeks before that I thought my thyroid was mess... Read more
Oh No, NOT Again!
I feel like all I do is complain when I post a blog! I've been working out pretty consistently, 2-3 times a week at the gym with my trainer, and 2-3 times a week at home on the treadmill. This isn't just putting in time, it's me pushing myself t... Read more
Just another question for anyone who knows. I've started back at the gym, working my butt off, lose a pound, gain 2, gain 1. Admittedly, my eating is not in line with where I want to be, but still trying to make working out a habit, instead of a... Read more
Starting Over...........Again :)
August 23rd seems like a long time ago, but it's only been a little over two months. That is the day I had the surgery that gave me back my life. If you go back and read my previous blogs, you'll see why. I really don't want to get into the deta... Read more
Well, I ended up having surgery on August 23rd. It was pretty painless, nothing near what I expected. I took percocet for two days then couldn't stand how it was making me feel, so I quit. The pain is tolerable so no more pills. The surgeon said... Read more
Hitting the Fan and Trying to Get Through It All...................
Just a disclaimer: this contains what some people would say is "too much information" sorry if any of it is offensive, but I was hoping to hear from someone who has this same embarrassing problem :(
Ha! My last blog was before the sh** hit ... Read more
Spring & New Beginnings.............
Early April and spring is finally making an appearance here on the "east coast" of Ohio. The daffodils and crocuses have been up for a couple weeks and now my maple trees are budding. The lilies and peonies are poking up and there's a robin in m... Read more
I definitely am not a cold weather person! Give me sunshine, heat, humidity and all the other things that come with summer. Just last week, I wore shorts to work 3 out of 4 days! It felt like spring was here. Yesterday I was wearing a flannel sh... Read more

ER X 2, Shadows & Vacation
I woke up early on Thursday morning (4:30am!) with a stiff neck and pain in my right shoulder. I figured I either slept wrong or because Buster was laying on my head, as usual. I went out on the couch, being the sweet wife I am (didn't want to k... Read more
A 3-Hour Tour.........
Yesterday we took our boat out for the first time this summer (I know, it IS July!) I take my camera everywhere, so I took a few pics while we were out.
We hadn't been out long when we came across this guy. The boat, the Lauren Elizabeth, i... Read more
I have an e-mail account at work (yeah, ANOTHER one!) and this came today at the bottom of some boring work e-mail that I was deleting. I saw this quote and thought "this is just the way I should be thinking about my weight loss!" I've read and/... Read more
How do you fire your trainer??
Aarrgghh! I love my trainer, but he is getting married in July and moving away from the area. My old trainer, who I really, really love, is starting to train again and has asked me if I would like to come back. My dilemma is this: do I tell my c... Read more
As you know, I'm not much of a blogger. I never have much of anything to say :) Today though, I am home from work, waiting to go see my doctor. I think maybe I've been bitten by a spider, or some other creepy crawly bug. The worst part is, that ... Read more
I just made a few changes to my spark page and was looking over my list of friends. Seems like 9 of them just up and left! I went in to "remove" them and felt really bad about doing it. I remembered these people, interacted with them here and no... Read more
