Thursday, February 09, 2017      6 comments

My mom weighs 225 and wears a size 24 and a 3X. I weigh 253 and wear a size 22 and a 2X. She's 5'5" and I'm 5'7". When I am 225, I wear between a size 18 and a size 16 (1X). I'd hate to see what she would be wearing at my size. But I digress. Wh... Read more

Tuesday, February 07, 2017      7 comments

Well, I made it through my first full day of keeping track of my spending. The new comer's packet they gave me had a small notebook in it for us to keep track of every last cent we spend. Luckily, I've only had to put two somewhat small amounts ... Read more

Monday, February 06, 2017      7 comments

Well, I did it. I went to Debtors Anonymous. The first step in the recovery process is always admitting you have an addiction. The second is taking action, and that is what I did today. I don't know what each day will transpire, but I can choose... Read more

In my last blog, I admitted to being a shopaholic. Since then, I've been reading, researching, searching, reviewing, and recalculating everything. I've utilized a free offer from Kindle to be able to read a bunch of the books on the subject for ... Read more

I struggle with bipolar disorder, and I've come to the realization that I'm in a manic phase right now. And not the fun kind, but the kind that can have grave repercussions. This morning, I have been researching debtors anonymous and shopaholics... Read more

These past few weeks have been strange, especially going on medical leave on Thursday last week due to a muscle strain. Or at least right now, that is the only answer I have, or have been given. Yesterday, they were able to loosen it up enough t... Read more
Random Thoughts at 2am
Thursday, February 02, 2017      10 comments

I've been getting up at 2am for awhile now, and usually falling back to sleep at 4am. I've decided to use the time as a chance to reflect without much of the distraction. Even my pups know that it isn't really time to get up yet, but they are ly... Read more

Since injuring my shoulder blade/back, I've been very hesitant to do any type of exercise; however, since I started wearing pain patches, I've also been able to move around more and get more done. Now don't get me wrong, I still hurt like crazy.... Read more
Now for Home Chef

Well, my Home Chef order came in a day early, which turned out really well. You see, I ran out of time to make the 3rd meal from Blue Apron and all of the ingredients had gone bad. That was one thing the recipe cards didn't tell you, but Home Ch... Read more
The Good/Bad Day
Thursday, January 26, 2017      9 comments

So, have you ever had a "good" and "bad" day all in one? That's the only way I can explain today. It was good in that I was able to get through the MRI without freaking out in the machine. It was good that I got to spend time with a newer good f... Read more

Ok, I'm getting ready to leave doctor's office. I'm to have an MRI, but she's thinking this is due to a nerve impingement causing nerve pain. I also get to have physical therapy, which doesn't surprise me. I'm also to call my GI doctor to make s... Read more
