Spoiler alert - I owe the podiatrist a Coke. Apparently I *did* need Achilles tendon rupture surgery, according to the ortho who performed the operation on Tuesday. How was I so wrong? I feel like I should sue myself for malpractice; it's almost like my WebMD degree isn't a real accredidation. Anyway, I'm deeply disappointed that I can't find a nurse costume to fit Hambone as she's been my constant companion and caretaker.
(Yes, they gave me morphine, why do you ask?) #ham
The update on the stupid foot sitch – I’m seeing my primary care physician tomorrow to hear what he thinks/find out which orthopedic surgeon or sports med doc he wants me to see. I’m not entirely convinced the podiatrist was right and that this is a rupture – most of you below say that if it were ruptured, I’d have known immediately.

(BTW, in the time it’s taken me to gain, lose, gain, and gain twenty pounds, she’s become a doctor. I feel this is worth noting.) I started the Lose to Win program at my gym this morning, at 8:00 AM. In the snow. While wearing a jump boot to protect my badly bruised Achilles tendon. As someone who would routinely bail on training ses
I’ve been laughing at all the social media outrage over the Lilly Pulitzer/Target collaboration.
Given the scope of other breaking news this week, this is what’s making your boil?
Number one, a Lilly/Target collaboration is not tantamount to the terrorists winning. Again, I refer you to this week’s headlines.
Number two, how is this collaboration any different than what Target’s done successfully in the past with other designers? Target’s team-up doesn
I’ve always hated New Year’s resolutions because I believe these public declarations set us up to fail.
On January 1st, so many of us proclaim, “This is our year of cooking light!” and we’re diligent and disciplined and feeling excellent about our virtuousness. But then we’re three weeks into January and it’s fifteen degrees below zero and the ideaof eating another freaking kale salad makes us want to go all Dick Cheney. So we whip up the beef stew we’ve been dreaming abo
