I went to the doctor a few months ago because I found a dark line around the back of my neck. It's a symptom of PCOS, which I have, but it's also a symptom of diabetes. While at the doctor's office, she told me that PCOS tends to push women in... Read more

I'd been dealing with off and on headaches for a week or so, until Saturday at 1:00 am. Since then it's been a constant, very painful headache that just wont go away. I left work early Monday to see a doctor, who told me she feels it may be a ... Read more

Due to scheduling conflicts, I get to go to the gym with the trainer two days in a row! Woo Hoo! I totally hate him while he's training me (even though he cracks me up) but I really like him around 4:00 the next day when my muscles start to fe... Read more

So I met with a personal trainer this past Sunday. He really got me excited about going to the gym. So much so, that I spent all day yesterday wanting to go back. It actually took a lot of effort to not go. The gym I joined has crazy n... Read more

And now, Green Coffee Extract. Green Coffee Extract contains a natural acid (of course I forget what it’s called) that reduces the amount of glucose released into the blood stream and boosts metabolic activity. Because of this, Green Coffe... Read more

Back in April, my son did something stupid that landed him a 5 day school suspension. While I stayed home with him I made sure we both stopped what we were doing to watch Dr. Oz every day. I feel that I always walk away from his show having le... Read more

Building off of yesterdays blog post... I have to say, it doesn't bother me to be compared to Monica Lewinsky as much as it used to. It's just a shame she gained her celebrity the way she did. However, as someone remarked yesterday, she i... Read more

I pass a field of red poppies on my way to the office every day. I nearly wreck my car looking at it, because it makes me happy. I'd love to pull over and take pictures of my children in this field, sadly it's on an exit ramp and I'm sure we'd... Read more

I'm feeling a bit down today. Maybe it's because I was home with my sick daughter all day yesterday with no real movement except for our trek to the doctor's office and the pharmacy. I spent the day laying around with her, napping with her and... Read more

I've owned a lot of sneakers in my life time and Asics have always been in the rotation, but I've never purchased the higher end of the that particular line of sneakers. I could never understand why one shoe could cost so much more than another... Read more
