Unimagineable cruelty, plus my blood test results

I am sitting here ready to cry, and hoping that typing out this blog will distract me from actually bursting into tears. I have been following this story on the news: last week some f_ing idiot doused a poor dog in gasoline and set it on fire. T... Read more

Hi everyone! Well, I had my 3-hour glucose test yesterday morning. Ugh...NOT fun! First, I forgot my paperwork from the doctor at home and didn't realize it till after I got to the lab, signed in and sat down. Of course, they had nothing o... Read more

Love the sun and warm weather! It makes me so happy!!!! I had the worst dinner last night at this Mexican restaurant near my house. I don't like the food there and have no idea why I continue to go there. The draw is the outdoor patio - I ... Read more

I went to the doctor this morning. Turns out, I failed the one-hour glucose test they give you to test for gestational diabetes. She said that my number was 135, and that I was right at the cutoff! Boo!! So now I have to take a three-hour gluco... Read more

Don't have a whole lot to say but I felt like posting a blog. It's week 26, and I'm really starting to feel and look big this week. Food-wise, I have good days and bad days. I do eat veggies and fruits every day but I could definitely do be... Read more

Great!! I'm super proud of myself. I stuck to my plan and it felt terrific! The only hiccup was Thursday night. I had planned to go to Zumba at 7 p.m. but when hubby came home he was hungry and so was I and we both wanted BBQ for dinner (YIKES).... Read more

Zumba retry

Friday, April 24, 2009      4 comments

I enjoyed zumba a lot more last night. The moves seemed a little easier, even though I was still a bit clueless at times. The instructor was better too. She seemed to have more energy. Maybe last time I just wasn't in my zone. I remember I was f... Read more

Lately all I've been hearing about is Twitter. Everyone seems to be talking about it. I looked into it because I was curious, but honestly...between this site and Facebook, I think I'm spending enough time online with social networking sites. I ... Read more
