Hypothyroidism Update 85452146

Sheesh. This illness is never ending. Like for real.

I saw my wonderful endocrinologist last week...who is always running behind on his appointments because he likes to talk and get to know you. My meds had to be adjusted. Again. So now I'm back to my 3 month rotations of seeing him. I mean I like the guy, but I don't want to see him that much! I thought I was doing well until I wasn't. I think me actually putting forth effort to lose weight is what kicked this whole thing off. So my daily dilemma is whether or not I should just accept this pudginess. Nobody in their right mind wants to be pudgy. It sucks that my body attacks itself.

Sigh. My weight fluctuates so drastically  that I have 2 sizes of clothes in my closet. This week I'm in the bigger size. Grant it, I have been eating like a maniac. Apparently also a side effect of Synthroid not being at the proper dosage. When is it ever going to get there and stay there?! This process is super frustrating. But at least I'm not hiding under my desk to sleep at 10am. That's an improvement LOL!

Despite all that, I'm happy that the season is changing (on the calendar because it's still hot). I'm looking forward to the fall. Cooler air, boots and baggy shirts LOL. Cocoa and blankets...I'm looking forward to it!

I hope you all are doing well!

XOXO

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
