Today is the 700th day that I did 30 minutes, or more, of exercise. As a teacher, it isn't difficult since I am up and down hallways and at recess everyday.
Don't get me wrong I like my streak and intend to keep it going. However, I need to sta... Read more

Blog challenge: Who/What do I miss.
ONEKIDSMOM presented a blog challenge and it made me think. Of course, the first I thought of missing were the "whos." My grandparents would have loved my kids, but they both were gone before I was even married. My dad is one I miss immensely. H... Read more
Another year on this earth.
Today is the 49th year that I've been on this earth. I am getting to an age when I can look back and reflect on this journey called life.
The past really doesn't matter. Rather we come from rich or poor, tall or short, college educated or... Read more
My first race post hypothyroidism.
This morning I ran the 10 mile Peak to Peak run. I ran with a friend that almost bailed on me. She said she wasn't prepared and I really didn't feel prepared, either, so I told her we could be unprepared together.
It was a slower pace than I am... Read more
Numbers and iodine.
The numbers on the scale have finally started getting smaller. I still have a ways to go, but I find this very motivating. Today is 9/9 and at 9:09, new changes are supposed to happen. I hope so and I'm ready for it! Maybe I'll lose 9.09 lbs!! ... Read more
I have to prove it to myself.
At the beginning of this school year, I caved in and bought some bigger pants. I hated to do it, but it was really necessary. I also bought one pair of bigger running shorts. I bought a size medium so that I will be more comfortable running on S... Read more
Last night a fellow teacher and hypothyroid and I went to a seminar about our "condition." It had a lot of good information, a few pieces that I didn't know being so new to this. However, at the end out came the forms to sign-up for a consultati... Read more
A good day.
It was a typical Sunday, except that I went on a run. I ended up at the bike trails and found out that I love trail running. I've done it before, but they were "races" and it was with friends.
Today it was just me. I could hear the birds s... Read more
A 1:00 A.M. run by a crazy mom.
Things are going ok. I'm still not losing the weight that my lovely thyroid issue has put on, but, I'm still trying.
I've had several "child challenges" of late. My oldest two kids are both adult women. My younger two are boys, ages 18 and... Read more
I got the results of my most recent blood work and it was in the "normal" range. So I guess I have the med that works for me. I've felt pretty good, but the weight hasn't budged.
However, I am regrouping. Now that I know my med is working, ... Read more
Looking for answers.
I mentioned that my daughter suggested going vegan and like many of you, I've read that soy is not a good thing for those of us with thyroid issues. There are many other forms of protein, legumes, beans, avocado, the combo of black beans and ric... Read more
Struggling and thigh rubbing.
*Disclaimer: NOT a pity party blog.
I am still struggling with my hypothyroidism. I go back for a blood draw in a week and will ask to get the "real med" instead of the generic. I've heard that can help. My oldest also mentioned trying to g... Read more
More steps on this journey...
Yesterday was BUSY! It started by having a pet sitting client dropped off and watching to see how he gets along with the new pup. Then, I helped some friends load their moving truck. They are moving to Mississippi and only had two hired guys to ... Read more
