Back in Action


I'm happy to report that I've got my ass back in gear!  

With the new year, I decided that I'd join a new gym.  I loved Gold's but both my favorite instructors left, so I had no motivation to go back there without them.  So, I joined another place in town.  It's a bit more pricey, but I'm excited about some of the cool bonuses.  1) they offer Barre class - I've been dying to take this, so now I could take it everyday if I wanted.  2) the package I chose comes with a 1-hour personal training session each week!  and 3) the 42 day challenge, which I'll be participating in.  Basically, its extra training (3 1-hour sessions a week) plus meal plans and motivation to get back in shape.  I need it...my assessment said I'm 33% Fat - eek!  

So, I started back on my schedule on Monday!  Already I feel more energized and ready to take on the day.  I'm actually tired now at night, so I go to bed a better time (no more late movies).  However, I still haven't broken my sleeping in desire I developed over Christmas break.  Thankfully, I can get up at 8 and still make classes! Woohoo!  But, I'll get back to my 7:20 wake up soon.  Baby steps.

I have motivation to eat healthier since I'm working out...I want to give my body good fuel so I can kick ass!  

I have energy to do things around the house...I'm not being a couch potato as much.  

I feel happier too!  I hated being lazy and feeling blah.

I love the feeling of having done something.  I've gone Monday through today and I know it.  You discover those muscle you forgot about when you go to sit down or get up! Feel the burn! LOVE IT!

Tomorrow is my first day of personal training and then the 42 day challenge starts on Monday!  I'm so excited.  Let's hope I can still walk - haha!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
