Week #3 and a new layout

Recap of my previous 2 goals: Goal 1 This week, I forgot my vitamins at home. Not once, but twice. So I’m still working on this. Goal 2 Water was pretty much non-existent. I’m struggling with finding ways to drink water or remembering to drink…

New year, new goals

Wow! I haven’t written for a while. I logged into WordPress and the whole interface is different now. But enough of that. It’s 2016! My co-workers in the office have this thing of yelling “2016” very excitedly. So do they have knowledge of…

This week: Gym meet Linn. Linn, meet gym.

New doctor = new plan

E and I went for our follow up appointment this week to discuss our test results. My PCOS screening showed that my insulin was really high and then he said that I need to exercise and lose weight. It was actually great for E to hear that though because now…
