    9/11/2014 10:16:38 AM, by CZESTES

    Staying away from the crackers worked! Even not being able to get in my preferred workout, I did get some in. I lost over a pound yesterday! Thank goodness, typically I gain a pound. The headache today isn't causing the nausea, so I have been up gardening and working on the pool. Too much to d... Read more

  • Too much rain

    9/10/2014 10:02:02 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Looks like it might be next week before I can even mow the yard. Part of the back yard has standing water in it. We're suppose to get more tonight and then more on Friday. The yard looks like I hadn't mowed it over a week. Let's hope that next week it doesn't rain and I can mow it so it looks nice. ... Read more

    9/10/2014 7:40:01 PM, by CZESTES

    Daily migraines I can tolerate and have learned to push through, but the occasional heavy migraine just puts me down. With storms coming and weather changing, I knew a "bad boy" was coming, I just didn't realize how bad. Those who don't have them don't understand it affects the whole body. I woke... Read more

    I'm in week 2 of a Couch to 5K program. I get up at 5:30am to jog, because it's the only time I can find to work out. I'm using the Android app ($2.99) from Active.com. The app is great, as it works with my playlist and you can choose the "coach" who tells you when it's time to jog or to walk. E... Read more
