This hasn’t been the easiest summer for me, physically, which strikes me as odd since everyone always feels better in the summertime. I guess the best thing I can say is that I haven’t had a cold in a long time, but my body and arthritis has felt like crap for the last couple of weeks.



I hate to point fingers, but I think that the reason I’m feeling so crummy is because of my friends margarita and sangria. Thanks to them I’ve packed on a few pounds, had my share of party cocktails, and now am feeling the results…in a bad way.


I’m excited for the end-of-summer family vacation next week, where I can focus for one straight week on good health: exercise, eating right, and not drinking anything with an umbrella in it. I sure hope everything goes as planned!
