(health/personal) Back from vacation!

Yep, I was on vacation for the past week, which is why  I didn’t post.  I was actually planning on posting, but after Harper’s Retreat, I got sick.  I think it was a combination of stress (running an event, even a successful one, is stressful) and the fact that allergies are killing me, and poor …

(health) Thoughts on stress

I’m under a lot of stress at the moment.  I’ll be honest – it’s mostly self-inflicted.  I’m autocratting (running, for those not familiar with SCA terms) a fairly large event Labor Day weekend called Harper’s Retreat, and the week before the event is always nerve-racking to me.  There’s SO much that needs to be done, …

(health/personal) Dragging today.

Abused my system a little bit over the weekend (lots of gluten), and am feeling the effects today.  Not really up for a post, but I’ll try later.  Just letting you know I was alive.

(health/eating) Revelations

Not the book from the Bible, but my own personal revelations as I continue to work on my eating and exercise habits.  I’m discovering that left to my own devices, I’ll eat pretty healthy, but there are some major roadblocks I still fall into: 1. Preplanning I suck at this.  Actually, the part I suck …

(health/personal) Yep, it’s Monday again.

I don’t know what it is this year, but lord, have my allergies been doing a number on me!  I’m hoping that the healthy turn I’m taking with my life will keep them in line, but I don’t know.  I even resorted to Benadryl last night, just so my nose would unclog enough to sleep. …

(health/personal) New week, new things to do

I lost a lot of last week, due to work stuff, and so my healthy lifestyle took a bit of a hit.  However, this is a marathon, not a sprint, so I’m back up on the horse.  We will NOT discuss this weekend, when I had Domino’s pizza (and not the gluten-free type either) two …

(health/personal) Healthy Mondays!

Yep, restarting the blog.  I’m sorry I’ve let it slide, but I’ve found that there are some things that have to give, and this time, it was the blog.  (And the housework, this past week.  Seriously.  I don’t even want to THINK about people coming over, because it’s that bad.  I’m in CLEAN ALL THE …

(personal/writing/health) Today is the day.

Today is the day I go back to work full-time.  So naturally, today is the day I wake up with a screaming headache.  Of course.  I have taken tylenol and I have both water and tea next to me.  I’m hoping that takes care of it.  I’m also dealing with a stuffed nose, so this …

(health/personal/writing) One week in!

Today is Day 7 of  going completely gluten-free and mostly sugar-free.  It’s been an interesting journey.  Weighed in this morning at 277.8 lbs, so up a little, but that’s okay.   It’s been hard, I won’t lie.  Drank Coke on Saturday, had sushi with non-GF soy sauce on Tuesday, and an ice cream cone on …

(personal/health) Taking the day off – success!

Yesterday, I was not on the computer much.  Hubby and I went with friends to my parents’ lake and spent the day eating good food, enjoying good company, and soaking in perfect lake water.   It was AWESOME.  Exactly what I needed.  And what hubby needed too.   Before that, my friends Carolyn and Beard …
