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!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …
