It was a weird day weather-wise. Started out cold and windy, but warmed up to shirt sleeves kind of warm for most of the day, but now the sun is down it is cooling off again, and the wind is huffing and puffing once again. Hard to believe it i... Read more
A little too much food?

I am starting to gain a little weight... not a huge surprise with the stress that has been accumulating since April. I was doing really well with LCHF manner of eating. Plenty of energy, good sleep patterns, etc... but it does not help with th... Read more

It's been a while since I wrote a blog... Things are kind of up in the air right now. Family, their health, my health... I am finding it very hard to do the intense exercising that took me to that zen place and calmed my mind, due to my health ... Read more
Season's changing

It seems the season has definitely changed finally. It was downright chilly on our morning walk today. I had to go for multiple layers and gloves. And Cooper only wanted to do one mile, instead of our normal 3 miles. Chilly pup! No snow in ... Read more

I have not been sleeping well. I fall asleep okay usually (and I have started falling asleep earlier and earlier), but my slumber is disturbed and restless, and normally I am woken up by my downstairs neighbors around 4:30 in the morning (or I ... Read more

With all this medical folderol ongoing in my life there are times I forget that it was a mere 6 and a half years ago that I was a lot closer to dying than I am now... I am uncomfortable, and I have pain, but as far as I know, nothing I am going ... Read more

It is the end of October here in Upstate NY and it reached 77F today... that is warmer than most of our Summer was! (or at least it seemed like it...) I took advantage and walked the dog three long walks, and three short walks... as well as thr... Read more

I haven't written a blog in so long, because I still feel sick, despite the medication my doctor put me on, and other things have cropped up... and all I feel I have to say would devolve into whining... and I get tired of that in myself... I don... Read more
A bit better

I took a moment this morning to watch the sunrise as I was walking the dog... and acknowledged all the new possibilities and opportunities I have with each new day. So yesterday was kind of awful as far as the pain and nausea go... I got a new ... Read more

Feeling really sick this evening... can't get comfortable. Can't get to sleep. Can't focus enough to read. Meh. Just cranky and out of sorts. I don't like resorting to taking one of my "as needed" pills, but I am so tired. I need to get to ... Read more

For now this is my theory for staying mobile and halfway happy. I will just keep doing and going as well as I can. Tonight I am dealing with muscle spasms in my back to go with all my other pains... oy! I know why though, and it is my own fau... Read more

Friday, October 06, 2017      24 comments

I have a good friend who just had bariatric surgery... and her results are phenomenal (and fast!), and I went the route of making a lifestyle change based in healthy eating and exercise. I can see the upsides to both, as well as the downsides..... Read more

It has been a while since I wrote a blog... about a week (or more), which is unusual for me. I have just been working to get through each day. I was in the hospital last week, and have seen three doctors since then, and we are still playing gu... Read more

So, its not a pancreatitis, or hepatitis, or mono, or an abdominal thrombosis, or , or, or... it is an infection of some kind though. Monday (when I went to the doctor) I had a fever of 100F, so she ordered some tests she wanted done that after... Read more
