I know I fell off the wagon and have been absent for a while. But I haven't liked the way I have been feeling lately so I think I better make a concerted effort to drop some of this weight. Problem is I know I have to start at baby steps again... Read more

I finally figured out how to put the 15 minute stability ball workout on my fitness tracker. I don't know why it wouldn't work before. I should have done two sets but I only did one. I will work up to it.... Read more

I went back to work today but my incision began draining so much, I decided maybe it was too soon and went home. I will continue to take it easy and go back on Monday. Hopefully by then it will have stopped draining. I looked at it in the m... Read more

I went for my post-surgery check-up today. The news was not as great as I would like. The doctor said that I needed to keep the stitches in for a couple more weeks, and if the incision was not looking better than he would cut it open and re-do... Read more
