My best chili ever (stovetop recipes)

It’s another cold winter day as I write this recipe out for you, but you’ll read it tomorrow as I’ve already posted twice today. I’m taking a couple of days off from writing in my novel to catch up on some housework. And boy, today was a productive day! I got all my dishes done,…

January month end progress report

It’s Monday morning and it’s hard to believe that it’s January 31st already. Although not really. This month seemed to really take a long time to end. January was up down for many reasons. Mostly the weather. The snow has melted multiple times and the weather has been up to plus six degrees this week….

Meal planning for healthy eating 2022: #1

It’s Monday afternoon and I just finished a protein filled breakfast. Surprisingly, eating healthy and cooking interesting meals has become a bit of a habit. I’m still using MyFitness Pal daily to track my calories and even to use it for meal planning. And other than ordering in pizza once this month, I’ve been pretty…

My new meds are causing some crazy anxiety dreams

It’s Tuesday morning and I’ve been awake since 7:30. The sky is dark this morning even after 9:00 am. I just finally got out of bed, got dressed and have my breakfast and a cup of coffee. Breakfast this morning is a piece of toast with half a banana, some oatmeal granola that I made…

Fitness update and progress report (Jan 2022)

It’s late Monday morning and I just gulped down an early lunch. My hours are all messed up because I slept most of the weekend due what I think was a stomach bug. I’m not actually not even sure anymore. It could have been a bug. Could have been the new medication. Or it could…

I’ve got a case of the midweek blues

Just a short daily diary post today. I’m tired and my shoulder is still dislocated. I’m not sure if it’s actually popped out of joint fully, but it’s hanging limp and hurts a lot. I think it probably just shifted out of place slightly. It takes a few days for it to pop back into…

Hello Monday, we meet again

Here we are at Monday morning again. The weekends just seem to fly by. I can’t believe it’s already the second full week of July. It doesn’t seem like that long ago, that I had just moved into this condo. And now it’s been almost four months. That’s insane. The summer is flying by too…

Saturday morning bagel and some rain

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve just sat down with my first cup of coffee – a real cup of coffee – and my breakfast. We finally had a break from the heat wave and got a wicked rain storm last night. I sat outside for the whole thing and it was wild to witness from…

Daily Tracker – Monday Mood

It’s Monday night as I type this out but most of you will read it tomorrow morning. I’m trying to get back into scheduling posts but am having difficulties this week. I’ve lost count of how many hours I’ve slept. I’m using the blog to help track the symptoms and other things I experience while…

Wednesday Miracles

It’s Wednesday already. I think it is. The days all look the same now. It’s a bit of a gloomy day outside but it’s snowing which oddly enough makes everything seem brighter. And pretty. It’s like the snowflakes are taking their time falling to the ground. We haven’t had much snow this winter and the…
