Unbelievable. How did I go this long without posting? It's been nearly a year. My husband got a bit of a health scare a few weeks ago, watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead again and ordered a juicer (without telling me). He finally fessed u... Read more

I'm doing this so I will look at it at least once a day. I refuse to let thyroid and adrenal issues stop me from enjoying my life. 1. I need to move more. I have to have some cardio for at lease 20 minutes every day. Increase as I build sta... Read more

Hey everyone. I've been tracking but not blogging for a while now. Home life and work limits my time online. But I have noticed I don't do as well or stay as motivated unless I'm checking myself by blogging. Had a setback with weight gain a... Read more

It was a rough week for me with the flare up of pain I had in my back and legs. I feel like I've gone backwards this week physically. The pain I was in made any kind of exercise impossible for me. What's worse is I got off of my exercise t... Read more

I'm having a difficult time today. Today was weigh in day. Now logically I know I probably wasn't going to see a loss this week. Even though this is my first full week of regular exercise. Why?? Because I wasn't going to see a water weight loss ... Read more

I had an acupuncture appointment yesterday and felt great, energized until I was about 10 minutes away from my house and then I got very sleepy. I tried to fight it but by the time I opened my front door I could barely keep my eyes open. S... Read more

It's been a busy week at work. I cover for my manager when he's out of the office, and he's been out of town since Tuesday. I don't mind the responsibility but when I do cover for him I'm always left wondering how he ever gets anything done. The... Read more

Back in 2009, friend at work had told me about SparkPeople when we were lamenting about our thyroid issues. I had been on Jenny Craig but wanted to track my calories and not just what I was eating. She told me about SparkPeople and the only thin... Read more

Okay....to be honest it's only my second day of real exercise since I got back on track here at SparkPeople. However, it's nice to have a routine again. I've been eating the right foods, we don't purchase refined foods, eat fresh/organic, I cut ... Read more
