This health news article is terrifying, BUT...
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who commented on the previous blog. Your support and understanding and lack of judgment means the world to me.
So today I'm going to try to be more positive! In a way. I mean, this article ... Read more
When good news is the worst news
I've been sitting on this for a few days, because I'm still sorting out my feelings and because I know I'm going to come across as a horrible, terrible person for discussing this.
The problem is, I have been wanting to get pregnant for SUCH... Read more
Feeling a bit better, plus I own a house now!!
Well, my husband and I own a house. Along with the bank.
But the paperwork is signed and it is OURS! It's a cute little Cape Cod with a really lovely open floorplan downstairs and a nicely designed layout upstairs. The backyard is kind of ... Read more
It's all about GAS
No one told me until after the surgery that there would be such uncomfortable gas/bowel issues!
Yeah, this is going to be kind of a gross post. But in the interest of being totally honest...
I gained 13 pounds of bloat courtesy of my ... Read more
Home from the hospital!
Well, what was supposed to be a laparoscopic procedure to remove a cyst on my right ovary turned into an appendectomy!
Apparently, the cyst was NOT on my ovary, despite what three different scans indicated (1 CT and two ultrasounds)...it wa... Read more
I'm both a little nervous, and also kind of in denial at the same time. I just can't quite wrap my head around the fact that tomorrow, I'm getting knocked unconscious and having a surgeon cut into me to remove a cyst and possibly/probably my ova... Read more
Final run before surgery, and it was BEASTLY
Took my last run today before my surgery on Tuesday, which means it's my last run for the next TWO WEEKS. That sounds like forever to me! Especially because when I *am* allowed to run again, I'm only allowed "light jogging" at first and I don't... Read more
Took a scary step to eat more calories!
I know I'm supposed to be eating more calories, and I have been, but one thing I've been procrastinating about is buying higher-calorie bread. I've been getting Nature's Own whole wheat, which is 50 calories per slice...but I decided I ought ... Read more
Sigh. This employee break room board...
It's just going downhill these days, despite the continued presence of my SP flyer and business cards I posted. :)
I mean...the other day I find some weight loss scammery posted to the board ("MAGIC DIET! LOSE UP TO 30 POUNDS IN 30 DAYS!" ... Read more
What should I do re: sketchy weight loss ads at work?
I noticed in the break room this morning that posted on the bulletin board (not a foot away from my SP flyer and business cards that I posted, plus an article I added about healthy foods not being more expensive than junk)...somebody put up some... Read more
Fastest pace yet!
I went running this morning, and kept myself to just about an hour (it ended up being 63 minutes), but after a couple miles, I really felt like I was struggling. I didn't know why, unless maybe it was because I missed breakfast yesterday and spe... Read more
I'm coming for you, Goodwill!
Well, I'm coming TO you. With clothes. LOTS of them!
Months ago, I sorted through my closet and pulled out all the old stuff that's too big for me. I took pictures of myself in the clothes for fun, and then piled them in the extra bedroom. ... Read more
WE MAKE FIRE. COOK FOOD. WE AWESOME!
On this, our zillionth camping trip together, my husband and I FINALLY managed to make a fire and keep it going without just burning up bits of paper towel and failing to light the actual firewood, or squirting copious amounts of flammable liqui... Read more
And we're off for one last camping trip this year! Hopefully, we won't get too much of the leftover rain from Isaac that is possibly predicted, and we can enjoy some good hiking with some DELICIOUS s'mores tonight! (Healthier food includes veggi... Read more
Um. Literally peed my pants. LOL....whoops!!
First of all, please don't judge me! :) And don't read this if you're easily grossed out.
Like, this is not something an adult should have happen to them. Get ready to enjoy some really good schadenfreude.
Spoiler alert: this involves ... Read more
