The Long Long Winter

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

We have had a long winter full of sickness. Last week, James was quite ill for several days and then he shared it with mom. UGGGGH…….in February, I was completely down for 2 weeks with some terrible thing. It’s been one thing after another for us since Thanksgiving actually and I am so tired of […]

Tellin’ The Truth……Thursday!

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

  Wrong day but we can make it work……   I’ve been working on losing weight since the little guy was born. I had significant health issues and while I was being disciplined and following a plan that is “all the rage” and apparently the only correct way to lose weight these days (insert eye […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

    It’s been awhile since I posted one of these! I’ve been working on my health since little guy was born. In many ways, it was working on my pain level. I had so many things going on after his birth-from C-section healing gone wrong, to horrible hip pain, and flare ups of my […]

Winter Medicine Cabinet

Friday, September 9th, 2016

It’s about time to be sure the wellness supplies are on hand. I was thinking through this today. We always have Calendula ointment–for scrapes and skin issues Dr. Christophers Bone and Tissue –a type of ointment I learned about before my surgery last fall Arnica ointment–for bruises–not open skin Homeopathy tablets for various issues (not […]

Therapy

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

I’ve mentioned my pain in the neck before. It’s from a decades old injury and it just never gets better. I’ve been able to control it so that I can at least function with chiropractic care and infrequent massages. A year ago, I started acupuncture and that also helps. I’ve been getting adjusted at the […]

The Weight ~Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday Revived

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

  I’ve been thinking of this post…..ugggh! I lost a LOT of weight a few years ago. It was hard work and I was really motivated and happy. I wasn’t at my goal and there was much flab on that body but I was happy that I finally made some progress. Then, I got pregnant. That […]

Natural Allergy Treatment~Update

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Earlier this spring, I posted my plan for relieving my nasty Spring allergy symptoms naturally. I’m happy to report that I made it through allergy season without popping any over the counter allergy tablets. While I know there are some considered safe for nursing, I wanted to see if I could survive without them. Typically, […]

Fighting Allergies Naturally

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Since I’m nursing this year, I am attempting to help my allergies naturally. I never had allergies until about 7 years ago and they can be horrible. Mine seem to be bad around the spring flowering season. So far what I’m doing is working well but once it warms up and the flowering trees bloom, […]

Back To The Eating Plan

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

When I was pregnant, I gained a lot of weight. We’re talking a lot! I wasn’t trying to gain weight but it happened. The midwife told me that often moms who’ve recently lost weight tend to gain quickly while pregnant. After baby was born, I was retaining a LOT of fluid for many weeks. Actually, […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

  I’ve managed to get a little more exercise in over the past week. I’m thankful for that but it’s still hard to get motivated to do it! I’m not going crazy or anything–mostly my walking DVD’s or the treadmill. I’m eating healthy  about 90% of the time. The unfortunate thing is that the 10% […]
