The Pediatric Neurologist

Friday, November 16, 2012      1 comments

We're done with the neurologist appointment. We left at 9:15 and got home around 1:30ish. The appointment was ok. She wanted to talk about headaches the whole time and told me "I don't know the answer to that" on every single question I had r... Read more

Going it Alone

Thursday, November 15, 2012      2 comments

Oh, I'm not really. But my husband is gone for a couple of days and I feel like I was left to the wolves (oops. . . I meant children). I'm an independent woman - I don't call him at work unless it is a true emergency. Because he's working two... Read more

Giving this day a 1-2-3 Punch

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      2 comments

My goal is to win today by a knock-out. It isn't going to be easy. Today is a bear of a day with too much packed into it, some of it out in the cold and rain. But I've got my gloves on and plan to fight to the end. Read more

I Feel Mahvelous, Dahling

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

I am getting so much done. Don't worry, there is so much to be done that I won't be done with it all for a long, long time. But it feels so good to have some energy and not be in pain. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop: for a f... Read more

Mini Personal Challenges

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      2 comments

I guess you could call them mini goals or even mini science experiments. I've been trying some small changes to my life to see how my body reacts. The first one which I've been doing for almost 3 weeks, is a no refined sugar challenge. ... Read more

No More Talking to People About Diet

Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

Why do I set myself up like this? People will ask me how I am doing - in a wanting details sort of way, not just as a a greeting. I will open my big mouth and say something about my frustration with not losing weight. And the lectures begin. ... Read more

Class Monitor (LOL)

Saturday, November 10, 2012      3 comments

I've been formally made "class monitor" at Zumba. Why do I feel like I'm back in grade school? My formal job duties are to take attendance (just a count of how many are there), to take care of any disruptions and to get the defibrillator if an... Read more

A New Zumba Convert

Friday, November 09, 2012      3 comments

I was talking to a newish lady in Zumba tonight. We had a lot in common. Both of us hated exercise before we found Zumba. Both of us found it snoring boring. But both of us like the fun and variety of Zumba. Nothing boring there! She's bee... Read more

Hoo Boy, Am I Sore!

Friday, November 09, 2012      1 comments

We did lots of squats in Zumba tonight. Boy, are my thighs sore! Remember to stick that tush out behind you when you do them so that your knees don't go too far forward, injuring your knee.... Read more

Good Lab Report

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      2 comments

I got the test results from last week's blood test today. Many values are the same. The ones that went up slightly are my electrolytes - potassium and calcium. (They didn't test magnesium.) This is good. This means that the prescription pot... Read more

Why I didn't Go to Kickboxing Tonight

Monday, November 05, 2012      1 comments

We had a sub - the same very inexperienced sub we had before. I don't feel safe with her and am afraid of getting hurt. Since my muscles are in such bad shape, this isn't a paranoid fantasy. I felt a bit guilty leaving my friends in the hall ... Read more

Sunday Lunches

Sunday, November 04, 2012      1 comments

Being a pastor's wife can come with some challenges in the "getting food on the table" category. We often don't leave church until 1 pm by the time my husband finishes talking to everyone and locking up. We live 30 min. away. We were eating o... Read more

I wonder how many calories I am really burning?

Saturday, November 03, 2012      2 comments

I'm thinking about renting a bodybugg to see how many calories I am really burning. But I'm not sure how accurate it is. I put in my weight, age and gender into a number of calculators, along with what exercise I'm doing and for how long and I... Read more
