Current Status (Health, Goals, Thoughts, Products, More!)

With all the craziness going on in my life, I wanted to give those of you (who may or may not care, but it’s my blog and I do what I want) some updates on what is currently going on in the Suzlyfe.

First up, enter the GIVEAWAY for the JLab Epic 2 Wireless Headphones! You know you want them…

Linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud

Current Status of Heath:

Again, I can’t thank you all enough for your comments and good energy coming my way following my posts on Monday and Tuesday (and on Facebook). We did blood work on Monday (when I went in for Remicade), and so far all of that has come back pretty ok, with the exception that my B12 is a little low, and I am back to the same level of anemia that I was at before my transfusions last year. 

South Park And it's gone meme

I am feeling better overall, and my urge to go is less frequent, I am less exhausted after, and I had far fewer episodes on Tuesday, but Wednesday I had to go stop 3 times during my run. I was able to recover quickly after, however, so that is positive. So I’m just going to take each step as I always do: as it comes and thankful for it. But I would say I feel basically about a B to a B+? I’m still feeling a bit worn out.

Current Status of Getting Pregnant:

On hold for now. We want me to get stabilized and make sure that my body isn’t dropping weight again.

at least you tried meme

Current Status of Fitness Goals:

I’ve fallen quite a bit back on my goals that I made at the beginning of July, and I am ok with that. I will still accomplish each of them in some way! With everything that is going on, I am not too concerned with time goals for my half marathon next month (Mag Mile Half–the only race I’ve ever repeated and my third year running it!). My goal is to finish and to finish in one piece and happy. And without crapping my pants, honestly. #crohns

I didn’t feel well, didn’t feel motivated, didn’t feel comfortable lifting heavy with my Crohn’s Disease flare up and my hip issues, so my lifting heavy and doing a pull up goal have fallen back. Right now, I just want to get back into a lifting routine of some sort for the rest of August.


But I HAVE accomplished my most important goals: running with Alex and helping him through his first race. Done (once) and done (twice!). We now run together on Saturdays, and he has run two races, so I’m counting those points as double.

Current Status of Corgi Adoption:

So we applied for our Corgi, and I got a response that they will keep our application on file for 6 months, but that they don’t often get dogs in that meet our preferences (regarding age, plays well with cats, etc). So we might be going to the shelter to at least look around next week.


I'm seriously obsessed with this meme.

Current Status of My Technology:

My phone is being a pratt (I just got you and just because I’m lagging does NOT mean that you can, phone!) and my computer won’t charge unless I basically give it foreplay by twirling the plug in the charging port for several minutes. Artificial intelligence is still in the nascent stages, right??


Current Status of my Car:

All in one piece! Door fixed, side view mirror fixed, all hubcaps on (had to go on a wild goose chase for that one). Bets on how long before someone maims it again? 

Current Status of My Obsession with The Nut Butter Filled Clif Bars?

If you follow me on Instagram and Instagram stories, you know the answer to that.

Refueling with Clif Bar and more at the BTN B10K in Grant Park Chicago. Check out the race review and recap at!

Current Status of Book Project:

I’m still trying to work on it an hour a day, but after a meeting that went way longer (in a good way!) than I expected on Tuesday, my doctor’s appointments on Monday (and the internet was being a biatch), not feeling well, and our friend visiting this weekend, I am feeling rather behind, and I’m trying to figure out what to do next. I have a dinner date with some people tonight who might be able to help, so we shall see. 

Current Status of My Life:

Feeling like I’m always playing catch up, and never getting caught up. Speaking of, I’m late and must go!

What is the current status of something in your life?

Who else is convinced that technology knows what is actually going on?
