    Happy Tuesday! It's been a mostly good day if you remove the massive migraine that I've been dealing with. Ibuprofen, caffeine and my oils have not touched it at all and it's too the point that it is making me nauseous. Ugh. Anyway, Mike was up at 4:30, but I did reset the alarm for 5:00 a... Read more

    1/21/2020 6:52:52 PM, by BEAGLEGIRL79

    I had an appointment with a plastic surgeon on Dec. 31 to talk about my excess skin and the possible removal of it. My doctor was pretty optimistic that insurance would approve me for a panniculectomy (removal of the apron of skin around the abdomen) and sent me for a CT scan to make sure I did not... Read more

    So after my run on Saturday (5 miles) I tried a challenge that a friend posted online. I didn't even make it all the way though it, and I did 60 squats and I'm paying for it still today!
