I find myself wondering that, at the end of every WOD, as I lay on the floor, dying. ‘That was awful!’ *pause* ‘But it was so awesomeeee’ And I’m back the next day. That’s how Crossfit has been going for the past few weeks. Excellent workouts, ridiculous WOD’s and I feel pretty good. I had … [Read more…]
It’s been some time. Quickie updates are in order! First off, no relapse. Lesions are even improving some (guess the Tysabri works). At first you would think, yay! But when thinking deeper, the thought pops up, but why do I still feel this way…? Am I going to be stuck like this..forever? The answer I … [Read more…]
Several updates are in order I believe. First off, let me share my Sunday Funday Torture workout! Sunday was a glorious day. Just about 7 hours of football on TV. The first game, didn’t care as much about, but as a sports fan, I watched most of it. What a game! Anyway, the second game … [Read more…]

For me it’s just another day, but more numbers on the calendar change than normal. So in turn, I’ve never been one for ‘resolutions’ either. I’m not … [Read more…]
The stomach flu sucks. And it sucks even more when your immune system sucks. Now I guess this is what ‘Tysabri depletes your immune system’ means. Numerous other family members I visited this holiday are/were sick with the same illness, including Le Boyfriend. However, he was sick for 5 hours, I’ve been sick for 6 days! … [Read more…]
Merry Christmas to everyone, or whatever it is you celebrate, whether it is Hanukah, Kwanza or Festivus. Let it be as stress free, symptom free, relapse free as possible!
I have now tried to slice plantains several different ways, and none of them are ‘easy’, unless the plantains are the color of midnight. I mean black, blacker than the middle of the night sky in the Caribbean black. Then, it was a bit easier, but only then. I tried my hand at fried plantains … [Read more…]
