This week in food and fitness

I’ve cooked too much food over the course of the last two or three months. I blame my Instant Pot. Yes, it’s as wonderful as everyone says it is, but all of the recipes I tried were designed to feed the family. I am but one woman with a husband who refuses to eat the […]

Not quite right and doodling

I came down with a cold, or something that resembled a cold, a few weeks ago. I took a Monday off and then worked the rest of the week. I did the same the next week because I thought I was better. I should have taken a few consecutive days off because it seems that […]

The not so common cold

I’m uncomfortable crossing the road to get to my car. Today I’m at home on the couch continuing the post. I’ve been thinking […]

Walking the walk

I can’t remember exactly when it was that I realized I forgot how to walk correctly. I don’t know that there is necessarily a “correct” way to walk, but a time came for me when walking didn’t feel natural. Now I know this was a symptom of my undiagnosed MS. I looked for gait training […]

Getting Social

The problem with social media Let’s face it. Social media can be the worst. It has become a platform where people feel comfortable being awful to other human beings. I had to get that mini-rant out of the way before talking about how useful social media can be. It’s not all bad There are a […]
