My son, Matthew and I are on a weight loss journey. This is our blog. We are making it to help keep us accountable.

I know, I know. I'm a little late on this. Sorry, there was Christmas, then I had surgery to have my wisdom teeth out, I have a family, etc. I don't think that I mentioned it, but back in September I suddenly developed a head tremor. I went to see my doctor, and he sent me for several tests, CT scan, blood work, then had me follow up with a neurologist. She then did MORE tests, and sent me for an MRI. Finally, in December, I got my official diagnosis. Benign Essential Tremor There is a link, if you want to read about it. But it basically boils down to, I shake. I will most likely always shake, and if it gets too bad, I can take medication. It's lifelong, but more or less harmless.
Christmas went well. We had fun, food, and gifts. Santa brought my husband and I a Ninja blender. It is fantastic. Now I can make delicious smoothies. Which is great timing, since yesterday I had my wisdom teeth removed. So, for now, chewing, or really opening my moth much, is out of the question. We have also gotten my youngest, Lucas, addicted to smoothies. They are healthy though, so I can't complain!
Before our Christmas celebration, however, we had Christmas Zumba!! I love everything about Christmas. The lights, the decorations, the music, all of it. So, of course, Christmas Zumba is my favorite! Matthew and I were the only ones to show up, but that's okay. We had tons of fun. Jess gave us all Christmas gifts, and of course, we gave her one too. Then we danced our booties off :)
