On the cusp of Christmas
Monday, December 23, 2019      2 comments

Well, it's the eve of Christmas Eve and I am feeling relaxed. All of the shopping, baking, decorating and wrapping are done, so I have a day or two to straighten the house up for visitors. I didn't used to be this organized, I worked at th... Read more

It's been awhile since I blogged, so I felt like I needed to do one. Spring is FINALLY here in eastern Ohio! Our resident groundhog has come out from under our barn after a long winter's sleep. He looks pretty plump too, so he must've eate... Read more

I've been seeing an endocrinologist since I was diagnosed with diabetes. She's pretty easy to get along with since we both want the same results. The only thing I have a problem with is that she tries to push a new drug on me every visit. I fina... Read more
Ugh! (again)

Sorry, if you don't like reading complaining on blogs, because this is going to be one full of them! So here I go again, gaining instead of losing and I don't know WHY!! It drives me completely crazy to get on that scale and see it going up, w... Read more

My VERY favorite time of the year! I love the hot weather, I love being outdoors, even when it's working at cutting the grass (ours, the neighbor's and my father-in-law's) and working up a sweat, sitting on the porch yakking with the neighbors, ... Read more

Winter is never an easy time for me. I hate being cooped up in the house, yet absolutely hate to go out in the cold and snow. What a dilemma :) So, it's almost midway through the shortest month of the year and the snow decided to sneak in last n... Read more
Happy to be Running?
Saturday, September 16, 2017      6 comments

Yes, I am! I actually had a pretty good laugh at myself this morning. I've ran twice this week with my trainer and was SO afraid to do it since all the drama with my foot. We only did a mile each time, but that is just a warm up to lifting. We w... Read more
Same Old Story.....
Wednesday, August 09, 2017      2 comments

So here I am again, complaining about everything, hence the title, Same Old Story. I've been sidelined from walking and running for a couple months now and the elliptical just isn't the thing for me. I've been doing it 3 times a week before... Read more
Just a Rant
Tuesday, March 28, 2017      4 comments

I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. I cannot budge on losing weight, despite working out and watching my diet. I either have to kill myself in the gym or starve to see any little bit of progress. I hate to sound like this, but sometimes I just... Read more

At least that's what my trainer call it! LOL I never know what to expect from Luke, just when you get used to a certain way of working out, he completely changes things up on us. He trains me and my friend Paul at the same time, so we get a... Read more
The Day After The First Day

So yesterday was my first day back to the gym, working out with my old trainer Luke and another old friend, Paul. Wow, just being in the gym again gave me the confidence I need to do this. The last time I was with Luke, I lost over 40 pounds and... Read more

Just a little short blog today. I'm wondering why I can lose weight when not exercising, more so than when I do? My diet is pretty much the same either way and it's pretty confusing to me to say the least. I've been stuck at this weight for a ... Read more

Well, not really, I haven't 'left" I've just been tracking on my phone app. But, my husband got me a Fitbit for Christmas (after me telling him to get it!). So, I just found out that if I track online that my food with be synced to the Fitbit ap... Read more

Well, it's been 6 months since my husband was diagnosed with lupus. It's been an up and down 6 months for sure! Since he got his meds regulated, it hasn't been too bad. He lost about 50 pounds in the couple of months before they figured out what... Read more
Life with Lupus - The Beginning

Dizziness can be such a crippling thing. My husband found that out last February when he started feeling a little under the weather. He went to see our family doctor, who gave him meds for his stomach and was told that if he wasn't feeling bette... Read more
