and there's NOTHING! My surgeon walks in the room and says, "You're a pain in the a**". Seriously?! Good thing I love him :) So, he says there is definitely no hernia. And my gallbladder looks okay. He's stumped. He wants me to go b... Read more

Just crashed after 25 minutes b/c my stupid knee is hurting again. Think I'll wrap it and then try the elliptical later on. However, as I was walking and running around my house blaring my work out playlist... I discovered that I'm getting tir... Read more

Tuesday, February 25, 2014      6 comments

I think I've come to realize why I hate tracking food so much.... reading glasses. Yep, I can't read the nutritional labels on anything anymore & have to pull out those dang glasses so I can get my numbers! Ugh. How did I get to this po... Read more
Rough month
Saturday, February 22, 2014      13 comments

My weight seems to have stalled again. This month seems to be a wash in the weight loss book. Ugh. I know I had to slow down on my work outs a lot b/c of the hernia, but I've still been moving & doing what I can. Yes, there were some days of ... Read more

Gave blood yesterday - got my results today. Wow. Quick work :) Doc called and said my only "red line" was on the bad cholesterol which was 108. But he said 100 was where it should be and that he wasn't worried about it. Every other test he... Read more

Can I tell you all what a HUGE wimp I am? I've had this hernia for about 2 years now. And I've been trying to ignor it b/c I don't like going to the doctors. Since the fall out from it is getting worse & worse ~ and I finally got insuran... Read more

I am so happy to be home! I do love traveling, but I'm also a huge home-body so it's always nice to get back. And I did real well with my eating plan while away... even worked out 2 days while in Nashville (the hotel gym had great equipment!... Read more

Saturday, January 11, 2014      9 comments

So, I've really enjoyed getting in 2 or 3 workouts a day in the past couple of weeks. Crazy, I know, as I used to beg my kids to get me a drink or snack while I was on the sofa watching tv... too lazy to get my butt up myself (p.s. they rarely... Read more
