I have a newfound appreciation for people who cope with limited mobility every day of their lives. Last Friday, my doctor diagnosed me with hip bursitis. It's too complicated to explain the condition here but it basically causes pain in th... Read more

Yes, I was sick again w/ some kind of flu bug. This cold & flu season has been a rough one for me, acutally for my whole family. Looking over the titles of my past blogs since last fall I found at least 3 other titles about being sick. And each ... Read more

I've been having trouble getting to sleep the last three nights. It's not that I'm overly stressed about anything bc thankfully I'm not right now. It's just that I've come to accept my occasional bouts of insomnia as a part of my life. In the pa... Read more

It's after 10 p.m. on Christmas. Although my holiday week did not start out smoothly since I came down w/ some kind of bug that left me very tired, achy and feeling somewhat feverish at times since last Tuesday. I'm so thankful for my DH and Mad... Read more
had a busy week
Saturday, December 19, 2009      0 comments

It has been a busy week and time has just flown by. I worked out only two out of the three days that I planned, but it's better than nothing so I'm not beating myself up over it. Both workouts were only about 30 mins. instead of my usual minimum... Read more
think positive, think positive
Thursday, December 10, 2009      2 comments

That should be my new mantra especially since I've been thinking negatively recently. Been feeling overwhelmed by everyday life, nothing major, just mundane chores like laundry, cleaning the house, writing out Christmas cards. There doesn't seem... Read more
feeling Grinch-y

Is it just me or do the holidays make you feel more stressed out rather than giving you warm and cozy feelings while spending precious time w/ family and friends? I try to think positive and look at everything in a positive light especially sinc... Read more

sick AGAIN :(
Thursday, November 19, 2009      0 comments

That pesky cold I was coming down w/ at the beginning of this week reared its full blown ugly head on Tuesday morning. Coughing uncontrollably and productively I may add (TMI?), snotty nose, headache, night sweats. Today is Thursday and I'm feel... Read more

Had a busy, exhausting but good day spent w/ DD, family and friends. We held Madi's 8th b-day party at a local bowling alley. It was fun to watch the kids bumper bowl. Some of the younger ones had never bowled before. It was my nephew Ari's firs... Read more

I had a good and busy day today. I took Group Centergy at the gym this morning for the 2nd time in two weeks. The class combines yoga and Pilates. It's faster paced than I'm used to w/ just regular yoga or w/ the limited few Pilates classes I've... Read more
