Back to back pain
Well, after having to carry Jacob home on our last two hikes, I have officially exacerbated my back injury. It hurts to do everything. It also hurts to do nothing. I did my Yoga for Back Pain DVD, and it actually made it worse
Obviously, m... Read more

My toddler gave me a black eye!
Today I've got a shiner, thanks to my 18 month old dinosaur. He head butted me in the face this morning while I was tickling him. I have to say that for about 15 minutes I was certain that I had facial fractures, the pain was so bad! Ice and mak... Read more
Richard Simmons meets Lady Gaga and other workouts

A reason to celebrate

Reflections on Vacay
Honey, I'm home!
We arrived back at home a few hours ago. I'm going to keep this brief because I have to go to work in the morning, but I just wanted to write while my thoughts were still fresh.

My new address is 123 Lumbar Strain Street
So after 6 months of working out and eating healthy, I started to slide last month with the food. I got off track with tracking, thinking that I had it all figured out and I didn't need to do that anymore. Big mistake.
In my first month of... Read more

You've come a long way, baby...
I find myself looking in the mirror and thinking that. Yep, I'm totally tooting my own horn.
In January of this year, I recommitted myself to achieving my weight loss goals. The pain of being fat finall... Read more

I know I haven't been a very good neighbor or friend to you for the past several years. I've had my own challenges, and rather than facing them, I took them ou... Read more
