Friday, August 26, 2016      8 comments

I had an optometrist check my eyes Tuesday, and the left eye has changed quite a bit on one measure. Why it was fine until the lens popped out is a mystery that may never be solved. I paid for the exam and then went to get prices (around $400). ... Read more

Still not 100% with the things keeping me from fully using Sparkpeople again (glasses issues and the headaches and eye pain that go with it, mainly). I have an appointment next week with an optometrist, so hopefully we can get things figured out... Read more

Glasses are still making me sick--some days more than others (??). Jaw still hurting, esp. when I eat chewier things. Guts, head, energy, etc. all still causing loads of problems. Plus, it's HOT!! I still want extra coffee and sugar (self-medica... Read more

For the last few months my nutrition has been negatively affected by a jaw injury. The oral surgeon believes the cushioning disk in the joint was moved out of place and the surrounding capsule of ligaments stretched. He thinks the cushion keeps ... Read more

Got my hair cut off today! It's very wild in humid summer, but this is the first time I've been brave enough to really cut it off! My son photo bombed the first one and then took the second one for me. Still don't know how hubby will react, but ... Read more

Thursday, March 31, 2016      12 comments

For the last few days, I've been thinking about my food choices and some reasons behind why I choose one thing over another. More specifically, why I choose something not as healthy over something healthier, because I do want to be healthier. I ... Read more

Water is awesome! We need plenty of water because we get dehydrated and our bodies don't function as well then. Drinking water is good. Eating fruits and veggies (which are mostly water) is good. Herbal teas, and milk, and a little bit of... Read more

Friday, February 05, 2016      8 comments

I just remembered my main goal was to eat better and be healthier, not necessarily get to a certain number on a scale or label. I was going to do this forever, even if I stopped losing. Now, don't think I'm giving up, because I'm not! I just wan... Read more
