I saw this on The Today Show this morning.  How healthy are your nails?  Mine are healthy and the tips are very white.   I want to thank those of you who mentioned you loved my hair color 🙂  Do you know how long it took me to actually like it?  I used to hate having red hair.

Not as much as I hated being in this thing.

Talk about not being able to scratch your itch!  Yes, i’m in pain everyday but to me it’s tolerable.  I don’t need Vicodin or any other sorts of meds that some pansies are on.  I’m a tough redhead!  Now when it comes to my digestion issues i’m a wimp LOL!


This morning I woke up at 730a..HATE THAT!  Darn nortriptyline.  I ate my breakfast and then took Boomer for a 35 min walk.  Since I had energy I thought I better take advantage of it and came home and did #4 on my move it page. 

I’ve eaten eggs for breakfast and lunch today.  I really have taken a liking to the egg white pancakes.  I don’t even miss oatmeal..WHAT!!??  I’ve been using 6 egg whites and 4 shakes cream of tartar.  For lunch I used 4 egg whites and 1/4 cup of Kashi Go Lean for some crunch and carbs to fuel my leg workout.  I killed my legs + 20 more mins of HIIT.


I found another way to cook my radishes…FRIED!  I made Mike fried potatoes so I thought what the heck?

How do you sleep?  I usually start out on my right side then switch to my left side.  I wind up on my back which makes me snore and then Mike pushes me 😉  Since i’ve moved here I wake up and my pillow is on the floor?  I don’t know what that’s all about?

How can this be comfortable?


  1. LMAO! Boomer is too funny! I cant stop laughing!!! LOL!!!

    Oh and that sad cast face again! poor little one 😦

    I cannot sleep on my back either…then the snores should know that 😉

  2. Boomer is TOO funny!!

    What a sad cast face 😦
    ❤ jess

  3. Girl I have a pic from the 8th grade dance that could match yours above! Oh how I hated my redhair once upon a time too! But now, it’s my signature and I totally embrace it. Glad you do too!

  4. Hehe I love watching pups sleep b.c sometimes their positioning just perplexes me. I couldn’t sleep at all last night and rolled onto my right side which I never do since I sleep on my left side so I was all out of sorts.

    Thanks for the nail tips-interesting information there!

  5. I saw that thing on nails.. I recorded it.. very telling! I am ok though! 🙂

    I am a restless sleeper… turn every which way.. a lot has to do with hormones & change of life too.. UGH!

    I want to be able to sleep like boomer… rest no matter what!

    Literally laughing out loud at Boomer’s position! NOT comfortable at all but funny none the less. I usually fall asleep on my back and as soon as I wake myself at the first snore, I turn to the right. 🙂 I can never understand how to check my nails for health. They look healthy to me. Now – skin on the other hand, can also tell you the story about your health. I saw it in Heal Yourself book. It’s very awesome! 😀 Hope you get to feeling yourself again. Give your body time to get used to the pill.


    • Thanks chic, I need to just get use to the meds. I have to remind myself of that.

  7. I love your hair! I guess it’s always ‘The Grass is Greener’ until we learn to love and appreciate what we have! I just grab my radishes prewashed/cut in bulk. I go to the Whole Sale place, grab a case of 16 460g bags and call it a day! I find it so convenient to snack on when I’m mindlessly chewing my way through my fridge! lol. Have you made a puree from them yet? Like turnips. I also made amazing Radish Chips in the microwave!
    Have a lovely day!

  8. ps= as for pictures, think CRIMPED LONG hair, fluorescent spandex purple shorts, a
    PINK (barbie pink of course) sweater with weird designs sticking out of the front (because I needed the apparent texture and coolness factor) and socks pulled up to mid calf, suede walking shoes, and half my hair up in the most hideous scrunchy that defies description. Yes, it was grade 5 and dammit, I was STYLIN’! lol

    • Gotta love the crimped hair in a side ponytail! Mmm…I would love to have the recipe for microwave radish chips!!

  9. I can’t tell how my nails are with this red nail polish on……just kidding 🙂 My nails look healthy!

    I start on my left side but like a cat I switch constantly through out the night.

    • LOL! Red polish 😉
