4 shipping days left...

Wow I can't believe it's Fri... This week has flown by.

I had my 3 month follow up appt from the joint on Mon. I blew a 37 so one point less than when I was discharged. So not bad but as you all know not my on going five year goal now of 42. So I came home and started the "42 will come true" Challenge. So I jumped on the treadmill for 30 min and its been about 2 months since I have been on it well I think I over did it. I popped a blood vessel again. So I have been dealing with that nasty taste of metal and streaking this week. The twins have still been bleeding a lil so I got on a high dose of Vitamin K to try and stop it and today it finally did... (knock on wood) So I am taking it easy til Mon and then balls to the walls right Ronnie? ;)

On top of all that I live in Smog Lake City! Holy cow the air in Utah is horrendous gotta love that Valley living. It is so bad right now. I am currently on house arrest which makes Christmas errands impossible, oh well I only have a lil more to do. The twins are a lil sore from all this particulant matter floating around.

The babies also had a vet appt to get some spots looked at. Lilly had a mass cell tumor 2 years ago and had to have a chunk of her removed so I try to stay on top of that. Osc had a tumor removed and Lills had a biopsy done on one of her spots and they are both cancer free! YAY!!!

I am so excited I have some good news to announce next week so stay tuned. Christmas is coming early for me :)

I have had some fun Christmas parties this week and getting together with friends I haven't seen in a while. Last night all my college roommates got together for dinner. It was so fun Thanks Nat again for all your planning!

I hope you all are enjoying your family and friends because really that is what this season is all about!

Let's De Stress!

So every once in a while I get these random news letters their goal is to share knowledge for better health...

So the last one I got gave 6 Healthy tips how to have a Happier Holiday... I thought I would share.

1. Accept that you can only do so much... I could be better at this
They say setting your hopes to high can cause a let dow. So set realistic goals, keeping in mind that you can't do it ALL

2. Maintain Healthy Habits... I definitely do this
Too much food and drink, too lil sleep and lack of exercise can lead to holiday illness. I would definitely add washing hands is a MUST!!! Purell is your friend people!

3.Go with the flow... Ok I can do this
Holiday traditions change over time. While you may be let down if you can't do everything you used to do, find pleasure in making and sharing new customs

4.Make room for sadness... I may draw the line here "There's no crying in baseball"
The holidays are a time where you may reflect on losing a loved one or sad memories. It's ok to be sad but I think you should take this time to reflect on all the Happy memories and good times.

5. Stick to your Budget... I am trying
It's hard but you don't have to buy store bought gifts... You can make gifts from the heart they mean the most anyways.

6. Seek Help If you need it... I think we can all be better at this
If everyone pitches in when needed, it will help lessen stress.

I hope these help... Do you have any Holiday Tips? Feel free to share! Only 11 more shipping days! Deep breaths!!!! ;) Xo

Wow it's Dec..

I can't believe it is already Dec...

Am I the only one that is not prepared.... So much to do.

The Air here is crappy and seems like every where I go all I hear is coughing and sneezing. Avoiding sick people and staying healthy is hard work... I need to buy stock in Lysol, Purell, Salt (still gargling when I get home), and of course the Netti pot, Apple Cider Vinegar oh really the list is long!

I ordered some NAC yesterday it's a supplement that I take but I ordered it in a fizzy form. drop, drop, fizz, fizz!! I am excited to try it out I will keep you guys posted. NAC is also a mucolytic so the fizzy form should be awesome!

I hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday hustle and bustle and staying healthy!

Don't forget to wash those hands ;)
