They Are Watching Me

Is it Monday already? Where DOES the time go? Oh yeah, it went to a slumber party on Friday and half of the day on Saturday, to church Saturday night, normal day on Sunday, to my parents for dinner Sunday night, and here we are. THAT’s where it goes. I’m happy to report that I exercised and there was no…

Becoming

I’m in the middle of my third week of the Couch to 5K program! Yee-haw! I’ve talked my hubs into doing it with me and even though he’ll smoke me, he’s going to run it with me. Ah, won’t that be nice. I told you last week that I was going to hook up with Sarah Markley concerning some of…

Normal People Would Be Nice To Watch

Outside of Richard Simmons, I have yet to see an exercise video with “normal” bodies doing the exercising. I have the Windsor Pilates DVD set and those people on there doing those exercises are, well, it ain’t natural!

A Good Doc and a Good Movie

That’s saying something seeing as how between the 4 people in this house who can eat solid foods we downed an entire bag of Golden Oreos in…

Thyroid Test Day

UPDATE!! It’s 5:00 pm and the iodine is gone. We’re doing better folks, we’re doing better…to be continued. Ok, people, it’s been two weeks since I posted about my thyroid drama. I almost typed trauma, but then I realized it isn’t trauma, it’s just drama. Since it’s been two weeks, today is the day I put the iodine that you…

Just Slap it on Your Skin

I have an in-home thyroid test. Yep, I sure do. Why do I, you ask? Well, in 1998 I was sitting across the table from my mom while playing Scrabble. Something made me laugh (not hard to do) and I threw my head back in typical guffaw fashion. When my head came back down, mom said, “Um, sweetie, lean your…
