Week 9: For real this time

With the hope of dealing with my headaches on the horizon, I was able to focus again on the other aspects of my health. Which I did, rather successfully, if I do say so myself. I had a good blend of meal plan recipes and other non-diet food, but I still did pretty well overall […]

Week 9: Or not

I basically took this whole week off. From the food and the exercising. And life without headaches. Seriously, I’ve had one pretty much every day for the past 10 days. And I think technically it’s only been 2 or 3 different headaches. I started seeing a new doctor this week and presented her with a […]

Week 6: Back in the saddle again

I feel like you should all prepare for this trend. Week A: So great, yay! Week B: Not great, boo! Week C: Great again, yay! And so on and so forth. So here we are for a yay! week.

Week 2: Hold on, I have to go pee

I think the 2 pounds I lost this week might have all been water weight. I kept going strong with week two and completed all five days of exercises. This week, Tuesday wasn’t a recovery day. It was challenge day. There is circuit that you do 24 reps of six different exercises and you time […]

Time to be the boss of my body again

OK, so I wrote before that I was going to start Weight Watchers again and everything was going to get back to working for my body! The weight loss would magically start to happen and I’d be in pre-babies shape again in no time! Guess what. That was bullshit. It didn’t work because I just […]

What tires your child out more than anything else?

Throwing endless tantrums about nothing in particular. Nothing wears out a kid more than laying flat out on the ground, screaming, kicking and wailing. For. No. Reason. Oh, wait. I think this wears me out more than them.

My parenting Kryptonite

When the boys were babies, I’m talking bottle-phase, they had reflux. All. The. Time. But it was never really “vomit” in the traditional sense. That was the aspect of parenting young children that I knew would be one of my biggest challenges. You see, I’ve always been a person that has an easy gag reflex. […]

So here’s the thing

Life has changed so drastically since the boys were born. Duh, right? Well, there’s a certain amount of change you expect. You can never really prepare for it if you’ve never had children. But you know your world is going to be turned upside down. And maybe spun all the way around a few times. […]

And so it begins…

Yesterday was Daniel’s last day at work. We are now in a period of limbo while we wait for several things to shake out: his short-term disability to get approved (even though he’s been forced out onto disability, it could still be denied), vocational rehab to get started, the boys to get on WIC to […]
