Yep, I'm 30. Wow. I didn't make my goal of being under 200 by the time I turned 30. I'm actually pretty disappointed. I have no one to blame but myself though. I feel like I've been in a funk for the past couple weeks. I had a plateau, fin... Read more

Well, I haven't felt up to running yet, but I have been doing great with my eating. Tonight for dinner, I had a huge salad (of course) and made a dish of white beans, salt free stewed tomatoes and spinach. Simple, but oh so good. I seasoned it w... Read more

So, we drove down to Disneyland, spent three days in the park, and drove back. Those long rides are killer. The first day in the park, I felt amazing! Didn't use my wheelchair at all, and thought I wouldn't need it the whole trip. The next day, ... Read more

We went to a anniversary dinner last night, and my husband and I decided to use our weekly cheat meal on that occasion. There was salad, pasta, and chicken. I've decided that I won't be using my cheats on chicken ever again. It was just so blec... Read more

I feel like my blog entries are getting repetitive: Feeling good. Lost weight. Went for a run...My life pretty much is that boring. But I actually like it that way. I'm not one that thrives on drama. I love my little family, taking care of my ho... Read more

This was a nice weekend. We've been having major plumbing issues for a couple months now and the landlord FINALLY got started fixing them. I was able to take a hot bath in my own home for the first time in almost 3 weeks. Yeah. Still a bit ragey... Read more

I've been MIA, but then I got an email from SHELL-. She was checking on me. That reminded me of why I'm a part of this group. It means so much to have someone looking out for you. I've been doing pretty good with maintaining what I like to call ... Read more
