Tuesday, June 13, 2017      13 comments

It's been awhile since I've been on. I've finally put my foot down and am refocusing on my health. My house went through a major overhaul in the past few months. I tossed everything I know to learned to the wind, and paid the price. I'm not... Read more

I won't take a walk today, except to the bathroom. I filled my pills, ate a healthy breakfast (in bed) and logged into SparkPeople. I'll call that a step forward. One day at a time. Now for a nap.... Read more

Which usually means I needed to get those things out, but it shouldn't be posted publicly, so here is the readers digest version. I've been eating a ton of sugar. I've gained 8 lbs in 2 weeks. My cousin is dying. He was born with Conge... Read more
