Today, I woke up feeling not quite right. Something was wrong with my stomach and I was just feeling nasty. I tried to remedy it with healthy food, plenty of water, caffeine, rest. The feeling still remains and additional symptoms have presen... Read more
So I was pretty excited to attend Deep Water Exercise this evening - been craving a great workout. This particular class is at the gym on campus and is specifically geared towards faculty and staff. It's free and you can jump in anytime you wa... Read more
So, I made it through Day 3. No weight loss today, but no gain either. And, remember, I'm still at a net total loss of 2 lbs...for 3 days, that's not too bad.
Today, I decided I'd be a LOT more prepared than I was yesterday. Because I kn... Read more

So, I didn't go to bed until midnight last night because of the Olympics Opening Ceremonies. Got up at 4:30am to head up to Indianapolis for the Color Run. I've really been looking forward to this race for months and, even though I knew I'd ju... Read more
Did some research last night on the possible injury (requiring MRI next week) and it had me kind of in a tizzy because the symptoms so exactly match what I am experiencing. I had not realized how serious this type of injury is and now I underst... Read more
So, I can't get into the ortho until tomorrow (Wednesday at 2pm EDT). I've kind of been in denial about the situation, but this morning when I had to stop in the middle of the hall because the pain shooting up my ankle was so severe (as I've ha... Read more
