Welcome to 2018!

Is it really 2018 already? Gosh! The whole year just completely flew by. It feels like it was just yesterday that Bryan, and I were standing outside the Flamingo in Las Vegas when he popped the question. Now we've been married for 4 months! It seems even crazier to think that we've been together for almost 3 years. It's amazing how fast time flies when you're having fun! 

I have never really been a huge fan of new years resolutions. Not because I don't think you should have goals and follow them. I just feel like it shouldn't take a new year for you to decide to follow your goals/dreams. If a new year is your only driving motivator than how can that goal be sustainable? Now don't get me wrong, I know I have friends that set goals and keep them after the new year and if that works for them than by all means please set a resolution or two or maybe even three... Whatever your heart desires! But I'm going to bow out on this one. 

I did, however, decide that I want to live a healthier lifestyle back in October. That goal is still a goal I very much want to stick to. I know I haven't been blogging or posting on social as much, but I have managed to sustain the weight loss over the holidays. I haven't lost any for a few week but that's okay all good things come with time. I also believe losing weight should be a slow process to make keeping it off easier to do.

With that I'm signing off! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Good luck to all of you who set goals for yourself this year. Cheers to 2018!

Long Covid, POTS, and Restricted Lung Disease - Rehab Update

 Hey everyone!  It's taken a little longer to post than I would have liked. We had a couple colds and the stomach flu plague our house last month and I'm just not starting to feel more human. So a lot has happened since my last post. My primary doctor figured out that I had covid at some point. I've always felt like this is why all my symptoms and everything got worse but I didn't have proof. If I had to pinpoint when I got covid it was in March of 2020. That's pretty much when things went downhill. If you've had covid or think you might have had covid and are having crazy symptoms I implore you to look into dysautonomia. It might be a huge piece of the puzzle you are missing. I was diagnosed with POTS which is a form of dysautonomia and by bringing my HR down to a more reasonable level the brain fog lifted and I've felt much better. I still fight hypertension 10-14 days a month but I was fighting issues 100% of the time. I was just glad to get somewhat of a

Living with Chronic Illness(POTS/Dysautonomia & Restricted Lung Disease) & General Life Updates!

It's been a while huh? I just went through the worst couple of years of my life. Gosh, I really think I could write a novel but that's not really my thing. Haven't even done a great job of keeping up on this blog. So I'm not going to make some promise that I'll be posting more but what I can promise is that when inspiration sparks me I'll be here to let you all know. I can also say I finally officially bought my own domains so if you ever want to get right back to this blog just type in or . I actually found out the hard way Facebook doesn't allow for .xyz domains which is just silly but that's a rant for another day. So first let me tell you where you can find me at: Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube - I don't use this one as often. I haven't really gotten much into video blogs but who knows maybe? I guess stay tuned.  Okay, now that we've got that out of the way. If I had to guess why you've clicked on t

It's been a year?!?!?

I totally can't believe it's been an entire year since I made my last blog post. I did create my FB Totally Jen page and have been posting short updates on that! Please go out and like my page for the most current updates and inspirations . So let's see to get this blog updated real quick... I found out I was pregnant in July of 2018, and we are expecting our little boy Ethan James about mid-March. The original due date is March 31st, however, due to complications with the pregnancy and prior issues the doctor wants to go at least 2 weeks early. Wish me luck as I head into the home stretch! We've almost lived in our house for a whole year, and we love it! The holidays were so nice having all the extra space for friends and family. We have added two new additions to our household. The first one is Sadie our standard poodle. She is very pretty and full of energy. She's been giving me a run for my money that's for sure.
