Day 3 - Do it anyway... I got up this morning and immediately grabbed a bottle of water instead of a can of pop. I didn't really want to do that...but I did it anyway. Tonight, I was really sore and I really didn't want to exercise at all. ... Read more

Day 690: Snow Tries It
Friday, June 22, 2018      4 comments

So I have a new username! I originally chose "Snowy Jade" because that was what I was called as a young child and it felt comfy to me. I'm learning that comfy isn't necessarily a good thing all of the time, though. If I want to release some of t... Read more

Tuesday, January 02, 2018      11 comments

It's interesting how you can be in horrible pain for a fair amount of time, but the fear and tears don't really hit until someone starts throwing scary words around. Long story short, I have had iron-deficient anemia for about 3 years now. I've ... Read more
