Wow, I have really been neglecting this blog. Either that, or my life has been just too boring to write about. I did learn something really interesting this week. Let m back up a bit. Since my heart attack EXACTLY 7 years ago today, I have been gaining weight at an astounding rate. I have ben askin my Dr. for years if my meds have anything to do with it. She aalways tells me no and that I just have to eat better & exercise more. All this while piling on more meds. So the other day, Danny was talking to a Dr. friend and he askd how I was doing. Danny told him that I was doing good and mentioned the meds that I was taking. The Dr. told him that all those mds at such high doses would lower my metabolism. Vindication! Why was I not told this before it got so out of hand! Maybe the plan was to get m miserable enough to put me on anti-depressants! Anyhoo, he suggested taking CoQ10 to see if that helps. So on we go.

I have been avoiding my beloved Target. A need to save money and all. They must really be worried about me over there though, I might have to pay them a visit soon. Just to show them that I'm all right ya know.

I have basically been hibernating in an attempt to save money & avoid food temptations as well. So I have been organizing and purging. I have way too much crap. We planned on having a yard sale but never did. I'm hoping to have one soon though. We have never had a yard sale before so any tips will be appreciated.

I tried to finish purging my magazines today. I already went through about 20 last week. There is no end in sight though.

I used to actually sit down a look through my magazines as they arrived. But lately, I put it off and end up with stacks of unread issues. I go through them, cut out what interests me, like recipes, tips, etc. Then organize them in a binder. So far, I just have another stack of clippings because I have yet to organize them. Here is one recipe that I won't be cutting out:

Can you read it? If not, I'll help you out. It's Spicy Chocolate Wings. Chicken Wings! Covered in chocolate! I love me some chocolate, but can I just say Yuck!

Go Red

It's that time of year again. So here is my public sevice announcement.

This is actually my life. Daily. Not just in February. I know what I'm supposed to be doing. I actually do try my best to eat right and exercise the way that I'm supposed to. I take my meds and see my doctor regularly. I absolutely, positively do NOT eat this:
