Year in Review....

So I failed to keep my "at least once a month" posting promise. I have a somewhat good excuse? Starting in April they started doing a bunch of testing because I was becoming very lethargic, and I had extremely high blood pressure with a slew of other ailments. Long story short...
I have PA. What? Whats that? Its just your adrenal gland producing too much aldostrone.
Thats all?
No biggie right?
Big biggie! My blood pressure was 199/119 daily.
I now control it with a very sodium limited diet and medication. I still have trouble with my electrolytes so running/jogging really hasn't been an option for me since this past March when I bowed out of what would have been my 3rd half-marathon.  
 I've gained nearly 20 pounds this year :( yes, and after loosing 40-45 lbs. since 2009 and running two half- marathons, a 10k and a couple of 5k's. I am bitter about this guys....VERY BITTER!
I will be leading a very different lifestyle for now on, and I've been doing a decent job so far. Only a few BP scares here and there.

If you keep up with me on Facebook you've been lucky enough to hear me whine all year long! Lucky you ;)

I wanted to go ahead and post some of my favorite pictures from this past year.

also: now that my lifestyle has changed I am making most of our foods from scratch. I've had a lot of fun making crazy stuff up! So along with the crafty things I post here, be prepared for some kick butt low sodium recipes. Tested by my poor family!
