Baking with avocado

Friday, October 05, 2012      5 comments

I started eating avocado recently as a no-sodium, healthy fat-containing, high calorie way to boost my calorie intake without making my stomach explode by eating tons of lower calorie food....and it occurred to me that it's got this nice, creamy... Read more

Ankles are so much better!

Thursday, October 04, 2012      1 comments

The last few days, my inflamed ankle tendons have just made a complete turnaround. I love it! Today, I was actually able to walk with a mostly-normal gait, rather than the flat-footed trudging I've been doing the last few days. Lord knows I had ... Read more

The dangers of indoor tanning

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      1 comments

I have always thought tanning beds were stupid. Then again, when I was a teenager I definitely laid out in the backyard occasionally to try to boost my tan. Peer pressure to be tanned and all that, though I never bothered to try tanning very oft... Read more

Police officers must maintain under 40" waist or be fired

ore-fat-cops.cnn Interesting video. Part of me feels bad for the policemen because their job security is at stake and they don't make much to begi... Read more

Take THAT, employee appreciation lunch!

Monday, October 01, 2012      7 comments

I couldn't NOT go because part of the lunch was a basically-mandatory "meeting" where we celebrated various employee-of-the-months of the past year, and the directors all paid lip service to how fabulous all their workers are (when you KNOW they... Read more

Taking it easy

Sunday, September 30, 2012      6 comments

I had planned on going to the gym this morning and using the elliptical machine, but then I was just kind of tired when I got up so I was already kind of debating going. Then I remembered that I had dreamed about being pregnant and how much I en... Read more

Another successful run, and the successful wearing of pants!

Saturday, September 29, 2012      2 comments

Two days ago, I started wearing pants to work again. I've been wearing big skirts and dresses (actually, most of them are from my high school/college closet...and they're too big for me!) to keep pressure off the incision, but I finally started ... Read more

Surprise! I get to have a colonoscopy!

Friday, September 28, 2012      8 comments

I just loooove these unexpected medical surprises. I had a follow-up with a surgeon (not MY surgeon, just *a* surgeon from the hospital) to check out my incision and my general health...and to explain to me what the next step was. I di... Read more

Thank you, ibuprofen!

Thursday, September 27, 2012      3 comments

My ankles feel soooooo much better, and I give most of the credit to ibuprofen! I kept forgetting to take some until this morning, and I think the anti-inflammatory plus reduced walking today did my ankles a WORLD of good. I still had to obsess... Read more

Are SparkDeals legit and safe?

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      2 comments

I don't know if anyone has tried to redeem any of these spark deals, but I'm kind of interested in a couple of them for the first time (the vacation, the waterproof smartphone case). I just wish I could find out a little more information about ... Read more

Floppy loose skin can actually cause problems! Weeeiird.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      8 comments

So my incision has sometimes gotten a bit sore...and I kind of wondered if it was because I've been wearing my old, much-too-big-why-haven't-I-thr
own-them-out-yet underwear. I think I'm right. That sounds so weird. Let me explain: When... Read more

My doctor said that I could probably do some "light jogging" two weeks after my surgery. Two weeks doesn't officially strike until tomorrow....but I was walking yesterday and just got SO BORED and I was going downhill which was aggravating my k... Read more

Tempted to eat just to fill a bit of loneliness

Saturday, September 22, 2012      7 comments

We moved all the furniture but a computer desk and chair and a twin bed out of the apartment today, and my husband went with everything. He starts his new job 6 hours away in a week, and I wanted to stay at my current job a little while longer ... Read more

My husband is moving out this weekend!

Friday, September 21, 2012      4 comments

Trick subject line! He's just moving to our new house 6 hours away. :) I will follow in November, when I've had a chance to get some more experience in my current job, since I only started it in June. I gotta say, I'm looking forward ... Read more

Aaaand 3, 2, 1 - setback!

Thursday, September 20, 2012      5 comments

I feel like 9 kinds of crap today. Yesterday afternoon on my way home from getting my staples removed (yay!) from my incision site, I started getting a smidge gassy/crampy. It just got worse during the evening, which sucked because I really... Read more
