A little whine... some anxiety...
Monday, April 16, 2018      14 comments

So, yes, a second blog today... just feeling stressed and wanting to whine... I had a serious hypoglycemic event last night. Woke up around 1:30 (not too unusual), feeling nauseous, shaky, clammy... just “off” (unusual)... but I recognized the ... Read more
Storms? And good customer service...
Monday, April 16, 2018      13 comments

The ice storm was pretty much a non-event where I live... it warmed up fast, and everything melted and was just soggy by about 7am, which is when I got home from walking the Cooper-dog. We did have some power issues during the night ( I know be... Read more
More pictures around town... before the impending icestorm
Saturday, April 14, 2018      15 comments

I thought I would take advantage of the Spring-like weather and take you on another walk with the Cooper-dog and myself... I just have a few pictures, hopefully they all load. ... Read more
Middle of the night...
Saturday, April 07, 2018      15 comments

I am sleeping... just not on a “normal “ schedule. (Who decides what’s normal anyway?). I am sleeping in the early evening until the middle of the night... and then I am up. I could probably do with a couple more hours each night, but that’s n... Read more
Cooper time
Friday, April 06, 2018      15 comments

Cooper is done with winter I think... he and I were short on miles (compared to our usual 8-10 miles per day) in January, February, and March... and I think he was starting to get a little stir crazy. He doesn’t play with toys or even rough hou... Read more
Relief... and frustration
Wednesday, April 04, 2018      16 comments

So, I had my follow up appointment with the doctor after my ultrasound and she said that there are 3 cysts that could be causing me the pain, but there is no indication of cancer at this time. I am scheduled for my mammogram in July, so they wi... Read more
Sunny day to walk the dog...
Saturday, March 31, 2018      20 comments

...and walk, and walk, and walk him again! Silly Cooper-dog wanted to go outside every time I turned around. I didn’t mind today as I needed the distraction. I have the medical test results looming over me, and tomorrow is the one year annive... Read more
Practicing denial...
Wednesday, March 28, 2018      21 comments

With this latest medical issue and the first of April coming up quickly, I am practicing the fine art of denial. My ultrasound isn’t scheduled until 4pm on Friday afternoon, so I probably won’t get back the results until Monday at the earliest,... Read more
One more thing...
Tuesday, March 27, 2018      16 comments

So, I have to go for an ultrasound later this week. I did call my doctor’s office yesterday morning about the pain I was experiencing (like she told me too)... and they got me in for an appointment yesterday afternoon. At this point she is unc... Read more
Grief
Monday, March 26, 2018      20 comments

I have been thinking a lot about the nature and process of grief and loss over the past couple of days (well, really, for the past year), as my family approaches the first anniversary of my mother’ sudden and unexpected passing. I asked my dad ... Read more
Positive, unexpected side effect... a bit of background...
Sunday, March 25, 2018      14 comments

I wrote a blog a number of years ago that addressed this topic, and I am hesitant to write another... not because of any negative response to the previous blog (quite the opposite), but rather just because it is so intensely personal and private... Read more
Puppy day...
Saturday, March 24, 2018      20 comments

The Cooper-dog had a good day today. He walked close to 8 miles with me. He also got treats, an hour of belly rubs, and was able to take a nap in the ... Read more
Wha???
Friday, March 23, 2018      24 comments

I read an article today that some "brilliant" folks have come out with Peeps beer. Why? That is my question. Why would they do something like that? The flavored milk almost makes sense. Beer? Not so much. Oh well. Not something I will bu... Read more
What I am... and what I am not
Thursday, March 22, 2018      22 comments

I started this journey in the Spring of 2011 weighing over 300 pounds. It took almost exactly 2 years consistent, dedicated effort but I made I made it to my goal weight of 160 (approximately -50% of my starting weight)... so in that respect I ... Read more
It’s been a while...
Thursday, March 08, 2018      22 comments

Not sure why I haven’t been blogging lately... well, that’s not entirely true... I have been procrastinating about writing it until later in the evening, and then I simply fall asleep before I write anything. I have NEVER in my life been a morn... Read more
