August 5, 2018

I’m a few days late with my August weigh-in post, because my LASIK surgery has been top of mind this week.

A Middle-Of-The-Night Junk Food Binge

August 13, 2017

It’s been two weeks since my exposure to poison oak (it happened during this hike), and I’m still as itchy as ever. I have rashes on both legs, a huge rash on my ribcage and stomach, and rashes up and down both arms.
