Another Quickie Update

by Tammy on May 6, 2017

Goodness, has it really been almost a month since I last posted? I am getting really bad at this blogging thing. Doctoral classes, work, healthy lifestyle, and life are just all too much for me right now. I was thinking last week about how time-intensive health and fitness are. Between shopping, cooking, eating, cleaning, and exercising, I’m spending, on average, 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day on this, sometimes more and sometimes less. Today was another shopping day with trips once again to HyVee, Sam’s Club, and Walmart, and almost three hours later, I was home with a trunk full of fruits and veggies and other essentials to the WFPB way of life. I was in Kansas City last week for my doctoral colloquium seminar and when I got home, there wasn’t much to eat. Dan sustained himself on peanut butter sandwiches and protein powder (and coffee, I think…) I packed a bunch of stuff to take with me to eat because it’s difficult to eat out when you eat this way. We did have a required dinner the first night at a BBQ place and I ordered a spinach salad (brought my own dressing) and a baked potato. Neither were all that great, but it was sustenance.

I did enjoy meeting my classmates in KC and the sessions were interesting, but now I have to get busy. I have to research and write a 20-25 page paper that is due on May 26th. Sometimes doctoral studies are kind of scary. I found out that in one of my classes I will be writing a 40-60 page paper. I have decided to leave that for one of my last seminars before the dissertation phase.

Well, I know this is short, but I need to get upstairs and do some reading before bed. I have a lot to do in a very short 2 1/2 weeks, so I need to start using my time wisely. I pray that you all are doing well. I will visit just as soon as I can!

Just a Quick Check-In

April 8, 2017

Where does the time go? Seriously, I feel like I’ve never had so much going on in my life. This whole past week is a big blur and today I was up and going nearly all day. I woke up about 6:30 and caught up on the WFPB (whole foods plant based) summit interviews for […]

Thankful to be Pain Free

March 24, 2017

It has been a really rough week here. In the middle of last week, after I felt like I finally beat my cold, I started feeling sinus pressure on the right side of my face. By Friday the pain was pretty bad, so I went to the doctor and she gave me an antibiotic. When […]

Keeping Busy

March 16, 2017

I didn’t realize it had been so long since I last wrote here. Nothing super exciting is happening these days so I don’t think to come here. We are stuck in between the battle between winter and spring, which is the absolute worst! We get teased with some nice days and then it snows. We […]

I Finally Found Something That Works

February 23, 2017

Hello friends. I am sorry I have been MIA again. I have been fighting this cold for two weeks now and I am so tired of coughing! I take Nyquil just about every night just so I don’t wake myself up coughing, but it makes me so groggy the next day. I do feel better […]
