So, my thyroid is fine. I'm not anemic and no infections. So, she's prescribing something to help me sleep and we'll go from there. I want to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers. That helps just as much as anything else.... Read more
Well, the doctor's appointment went okay. She drew blood to test my thyroid. I might know the results by tonight, but if not it will be Thursday before I find out (they aren't in the office on Wednesday). If everything is normal, then she sai... Read more
Just checking in...
I've had a rough week this week. I haven't had any motivation to do anything. I've still done my morning workouts, but my effort was probably not what it could have been. My eating has been okay, but I've made a few choices that could have be... Read more
Haven't blogged for a few days...
It is so hot today. It's only May 10, and they are calling for record-breaking temps in the mid-90s. That's Iowa weather for you! It is windy, so at least the air is moving. We did turn the central air on last night (I do not do good in hot ... Read more
Wow! What a week! T-ball games, concerts, early outs, lock-ins. Why is it that my boys aren't too busy until the month of May? They are only in 2nd grade and preschool! Jacob's concert went great last night. The preschoolers only did 3 song... Read more
Wednesday, May 4
Ugh! I really don't like early out days. The boys are being very noisy and I have a migraine threatening to attack.
Anyway, this week has been going pretty good so far. I'm having no problem reaching my step goal of 7,000 steps. Between ... Read more

So, we are at my parents' house for the weekend. I decided to get up and go for a walk on the trail this morning. It started out a bit chilly (it was cloudy and breezy), but as I was walking the sun came out and it warmed up. I caught the tra... Read more
Is it really the sun?
It is such a beautiful day today and tomorrow is supposed to be even better! Sunshine! Woo Hoo!!!!! How I have missed you...
Anyway, my day is going better than yesterday. Still had the migraine this morning and took some more Excedrin ... Read more
Okay, so why do I have to deal with TOM and a migraine at the same time? It makes for a very miserable day. That and the sun can't decide if it wants to stay out or go behind the clouds. I have absolutely no motivation to do anything and I ha... Read more
Much better day...
Okay, so I figured how to not be annoyed by Leslie Sanson on her DVDs - use the music only workout!! I added some of her DVDs to my queue on Netflix and the first one was Walk Slim: 4 Fast Miles Walk at Home disc 1. I tried watching a little b... Read more
Up and down morning
Okay, so I started off with the best of intentions to not yell at the boys. I had walked on the treadmill for my workout, which felt great. I was pleasant when I went in to get Matthew up (Jacob was already up and was getting dressed). Breakf... Read more
Happy Easter Sunday!
Wow, what a church service this morning! Full of awesome music (even that "Hallelujah Chorus"!) It went really great! All the new songs went well. One of the new ones that we did was "We Are the Reason" (that was also the theme for the day).... Read more

So, this morning I stepped on the scale to "check in". I was very pleased to see 159 on that scale. That's 1.2 pounds lost in the past two weeks. It doesn't seem like a lot, but the fact that some of my eating hasn't been the best (can we say... Read more
