I must admit that I haven't been feeling all that great for the last few days or so... probably about a week. I almost get used to waking up exhausted with pain I can't ease (if you're just now tuning in: I have fibromyalgia.) It's exasperated when I don't get enough rest and sleep... I guess I shouldn't have said that since I'm still awake and it's after 1 a.m.
Given my schedule with the younger kids and taking the teenagers to work, I don't get much -- if anything -- completed during the day so I try to get as much as I can done at night. Unfortunately, it's not the ideal schedule for someone like me.
I'm hoping to get my medical insurance situation (I don't have any!) resolved soon so I can get to the doctor. I want to try that new medicine that's specific for fibro. Lyrica. (Has anyone tried it or know of someone who has?)
Concerning my weight loss... Since I've been feeling bloaty and out of sorts in the stomach area I'm assuming (read: hoping) that I've lost a little weight but can't tell. As soon as my tummy gets itself together then maybe my weight loss ticker at the top of the screen will move. LOL.
I need to add some type of exercise routine to my new schedule (with all the younger kids here full time), but until I do I guess I will stick to counting calories and eating healthy. Maybe by mid-July I should come up with something since my goal date is looming only about three months away!
Until next time... here's to good health!

Developed by Bon Mangé Inc., SorbayPC Lozenge is touted as being a convenient way to freshen the palate and as the only product to effectively eliminate residual food flavors that are responsible for yucky mouth.
How does it work?
It takes three active ingredients -- citric acid, tannic acid and sodium lauryl sulfate -- that help to produce cleansing properties when placed in the mouth at the same time. According to Bon Mangé, the lozenge works by a "patented breakthrough palate cleansing technology in the form of a pleasant neutral tasting sugar-free hard candy."
Although my mouth felt a little cleaner, I'm not sure about the taste. I always expect a lozenge or breath freshener to have a minty-like taste. It could be that I'm just a creature of habit and the SorbayPC Lozenge will just have to grow on me.
Despite my picky taste buds, I think you should give the SorbayPC Lozenge a taste test. It can be purchased through Bon Mange.com. Once you give it a try, come back and let me know what you think.
Here's to fresh breath!
I recently had the pleasure of sampling Kashi's Vive, which is their Probiotic Digestive Wellness Cereal. Although I like a lot of Kashi products there are some I'm not too crazy about so the sample sat on my desk for quite some time.
Today, as my stomach started to announce the need for an afternoon snack, I spied the Vive. Hmm, I thought, I guess I should give it a try especially since my stomach has seemed a little out of sorts lately.
Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The Vive, which I had in the Toasted Graham & Vanilla flavor, was a burst of sweet and grainy tastes. I gobbled down the 100 calorie snack (yup, I like dry cereal) and wished I'd had more.
Besides its claim that it may help balance, purify and strengthen my digestion it takes good too. And, I don't know about you, but that's important to me. The next time I'm at the grocery store I'm going to grab a box of Kashi's Vive and I suggest you do too.
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
I haven't started reading it yet, but it's next in line. It's Wraith: A Zoe Martinique Investigation by Phaedra Weldon.
"I'm not sure that whiskey's going to stay down -- so if I disappear again -- it's because I need to hurl. I was thinking about what you'd said yesterday -- about Reverend Rollins."
I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound good to me. I hope this book is good because I read the first page and got all into it. My BFF and I are going to read it together and we're thinking about starting an Over the Miles Book Club.
An-t-way... I don't really feel like specifically tagging anyone so if you're one of the first five people to read this then: tag you're it! (Yes, you have to be honest! LOL.)

Doesn't it look yummy?
I guess they thought it was tasty because they cleaned their plates and asked for more! They really loved sitting at the big table with us... Andre and Amareah normally sit at their own table for meals.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and giving her little trinkets and cards throughout the day. Her best friend stopped by and after lunch, which we had at Subway (one of her favorite spots), we had cake and ice cream.
