Announcing...the babies' genders!
Wednesday, June 26, 2013      11 comments

If you're curious, I can now EXCLUSIVELY reveal (aren't you intrigued?) that from now on, I can refer to my upcoming twins with the appropriate pronouns. *drum roll* We are having two little boys! I am a little sad that I won't s... Read more
France!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      4 comments

I'll have to add some photos later; I'm currently at work (shhhh, don't tell my boss!) Anyways, we had a great time in France. My parents, husband, sister, and brother-in-law (who is French) all went together and spent most of the time in P... Read more
20 week ultrasound - so far, so good, we think!
Thursday, June 06, 2013      3 comments

I had my 20 week ultrasound yesterday, and everything went pretty well, for the most part. Baby A is in a position (vertex) that made it easier for the sonographer to see it, so she got lots of measurements and the only thing that concerned her ... Read more

Well, now I know how to cure constipation...another TMI blog of total honesty and oversharing!
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      11 comments

As I'm a big fan of TMI when it comes to health and bodily functions (my philosophy is: hey, we all deal with this stuff, why make it into something embarrassing and taboo?) I should warn you: this blog is going to be kind of grody for those who... Read more
I semi-successfully jogged tonight, kind of!

Get it, girl.

LOL I love people sometimes. Well, almost always, to be honest. But anyways... I like going for walks before/after work and during lunch. Gets me some more exercise to break up periods of sitting around at work/on my lengthy commute, plus ... Read more
Sleep vs. exercise
Saturday, June 01, 2013      2 comments

I've been getting about 5 to 5 1/2 hours of sleep a night lately, and I know it's not sustainable. I had to call my husband this morning while I was midway through my hourlong commute to work because I just could not stay awake on the road. I'd ... Read more
Excavations
Friday, May 31, 2013      2 comments

I am an excavator. You know, the annoying person that digs all the cookie dough chunks out and leaves the vanilla ice cream, or scoops all the soft chewy bread from the middle of the loaf and leaves the outer crust. So I always used to exca... Read more
Manage leg cramps at night
Wednesday, May 29, 2013      4 comments

I used to have a problem with my lower legs and feet cramping up when I was in bed, to the point where the pain would wake me up and I'd have to get out of bed to stand up because that's the only thing that makes those kinds of cramps go away fo... Read more
Getting my old walking pace back!
Tuesday, May 28, 2013      1 comments

My hip still bothers me, but I've just about gotten my old walking pace back! :) I don't think I can run on it yet or do Zumba, but walking has gotten SO much better. I barely limp at all when walking normally, and I don't think I do it at all ... Read more

Snot Rockets and Eating When Exhausted
Saturday, May 25, 2013      3 comments

My day started off great - got in an hour on my stationary bike, got a 20 minute walk in before work, another 20 minute walk at lunch, and 14 minutes after work. I was supposed to lift weights this evening, but I'm so exhausted after literally s... Read more
Are they repeating Daily Spark blogs?
Friday, May 24, 2013      2 comments

Is it just me, or have a lot of the Daily Spark blogs - no, excuse me, the official SparkPeople blogs or whatever they changed the name to - been repeats of old ones? I swear I've read a bunch of them before, and I KNOW I've read this tabata ent... Read more
