well the snow they've been threatening us with all week has hit. We probably have 4-6 inches here and lots of drifting but it's not so bad that we can't get out. I am glad that I cancelled my grandma's eye appointment for today though. She's ... Read more

I had to take a couple of days off. I had a minor flare up of my crohn's. So for the last 2 days it's been "regroup mode." Today i was able to get back on the wii fit and I had a goal to hit 300 calories. I did a combo of super hulahoop, fre... Read more

Very sore in the pecs and delts from all the pushups but not terrible. I did 30 minutes of rhythmic boxing and island cycling on the Wii and then 34 minutes of yoga. That helped some. I have hope of being able to handle doing The Pit again to... Read more

Have only been taking the Alli sporadically. Can't really say if it works or not because of that. I decided that since I have a history of crohn's that I'd do every other dose for a several days before I went for it completely. Tomorrow I sha... Read more

Well, I decided to give Alli a try. Not a big fan of diet pills but I need something to give me a little extra help while I'm stuck on the couch. It won't take the place of all that cardio I would be doing if I could but if it sucks up a few c... Read more

I bought shoes today. Two pairs of the same ones only one pair of 8 1/2 and one pair of 9 1/2 to be able to get the left one on. LOL I figure that it will be ok because in 2 months I'll need the right in the bigger size and hopefully the smal... Read more

I'm sitting here on the couch and looking at a bare, if gnarly looking foot. I have to wear my boot and an ace bandage still, but i'm able to get in the pool, shower and hot tub. Also, Sat. i get to start slowly working in a shoe. Ahhh, progr... Read more
