Taking a Social Media Break

I had my first physical therapy session for my broken shoulder today. I was eager to get started stretching and strengthening the muscles in my arm which haven't been used much in the last month. I was excited to get my range of motion back and get on with life. While I knew recovery would take some time, I figured once PT started recovery would

Hillary Clinton is Not a Badass

Since it was divulged that Hillary Clinton has pneumonia, social media has lit up with memes about Hillary Clinton's super human stamina. Hillary Clinton is not a badass, Hillary Clinton is just like every other woman on this planet who ignores her own health. And it's a stupid thing to do. This isn't a political post, I don't care for Hillary Clinton's policies or much

Cheesy Smoked Sausage Hotdish Instant Pot Recipe

I've been cooking with my Instant Pot just about every day since I got it a few weeks ago. I used the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W, but you can use any pressure cooker. I put together this cheesy smoked sausage hotdish Instant Pot recipe so I could use up some kielbasa I had in the freezer. Not only was it super easy

Diet Coke Withdrawal

Diet Coke withdrawal is real. If someone tries to tell you that kicking the Diet Coke habit is all about caffeine withdrawal please kick them in the balls. I'm on day 8,394 without a Diet Coke, at least it feels that way. In reality I haven't had a Diet Coke in about a week and it sucks. It really sucks. I replaced the caffeine when

What To Expect When You Have A Stress Test – Part 2

Wow, describing a cardiac stress test takes far more words than I expected. This is part 2 of my description of a cardiac stress test. You can see the first part, basically the prep for the stress test, here. At this point in the story I'm on the treadmill. I have had no caffeine so I'm not sure how I'm going to find the energy

Whole30 Success Story!

I'm going to be a Whole30 Success Story -- in about 30 days. If you haven't heard of Whole30 don't feel bad, I just found out about recently and learned it's been a thing since 2009. Basically Whole30 is cutting out all processed foods for 30 days. You can eat meats, fruits and vegetables and that's about it. Which wouldn't be that bad if you

Why I Love imgur

I discovered imgur a few months ago. I don't exactly remember how, I probably stumbled on it one day while surfing (good old fashioned web surfing where you just follow the links to see where they take you {it's probably a little harder to do that without anxiety if you are using a Windows PC rather than a Mac}) the internet for holiday recipes. Anyway,

Like half the population (I have no statistics to support that claim) I started a lifestyle change on January 1st of this year. It was either radically change my diet or look into a career in Sumo Wrestling or gain a few more pounds and get lap band surgery (People actually do this! Women mostly, have been gaining weight so they can have weight loss

What Is Ringworm?

What is ringworm*? I'll tell you what ringworm is. It's the reason my kid has been home for the last four days and the reason your kid came home with a note only slightly less better than the lice note. Thankfully we are not the lice family but ringworm is a very close second. What is ringworm? Until a week and a half ago I
