POOL CRITTERS - PICS!

Friday, June 21, 2013

First, let me tell you that I've found the Fountain of Youth! The thing is, you don't drink from it; you SWIM in it!

I've been swimming in deep water, so I can't cheat, for one hour twice a week. Doesn't matter what I do as long as I keep moving. If I get really tired, I float on my back for about a minute, then back to treading water, dog paddle, side swimming, etc. etc. Every muscle in my body below my nose is moving.

I'm tired when I'm done, but also completely REFRESHED. And I really feel like I'm 15 years younger. (I'll be 65 in October.)

Doesn't matter if you have bad knees or hips or whatever. You can be graceful and light in water. People come to the pool in wheel chairs, on walker and canes and delight in free movement they can't get on land anymore. One man is lowered in from his chair to the pool by an attendant. He's paraplegic and swims for an hour using only his upper body.

Yesterday, from my lane in the deep water pool, I looked over to the lawn chairs on the side lines. There was something under one of them. It was a pretty far distance, so I couldn't be sure but I thought it was a turtle! Huge lover of creatures that I am, I was immediately worried about it.

I swam to the other end of the pool and asked Cassidy, the life saver on duty, if she saw a turtle over there. She said it looked like a pile of rocks or something to her. I asked her to walk over there and take a closer look. Shortly I heard her yell, "It's a turtle!".

She and the other guard on duty got all excited and were talking about what to do, so I offered, "Pick it up gently and take it to the park pond." Only a short distance from the pool. So they did, but first she was kind enough to take some shots with her iphone.


This is what I saw from the pool, only much farther away.


Here's a closeup "glamor" shot of His Majesty The Poolside Tortise! But he's really a turtle and belongs in the water. (My large photo is so clear you can see the red markings on his face, but SP auto-edits photos to a smaller size. Sorry.)

This is a city pool, surrounded by concrete and fenced in. You don't expect to see much in the way of wildlife there. But it's amazing that there are few other "regulars", Scissor Tails and Cowbirds, who hang out along the edges.

One pretty small, scrawny scissor tail bird stands there for the entire hour and screams and shrieks at me, fusses at me, like he wants me out of HIS water, lol. He even dive bombed me, flying straight at me, just barely above the water, only swerving away when he got really close!

I guess he hasn't figured out yet that I am a pool critter, too! LOL.

Karen

PS: By the way, swimming is GREAT for lowering blood pressure! After my water workout yesterday and my 30 min. walk today, my BP was 118/75. A miracle for me!

Also, My chiropractor insists that I do some water walking! He tells me to walk in water waist to knee deep, and to be sure I also walk Backwards. He says this exercises a different set of muscles in my lower back. If you exercise in water in any way, it's all good!

The house I am having built is right next door so I will be using the pool without the hassle of taking care of it. The pool is screened but they had a little snake enjoying a swim. Who knows how he got it, but he definitely was not welcome!

    Water made all the difference in my recovery two years ago! At first, my husband had to roll my wheelchair down the ramp into the pool. Then I started walking forward and back for just a few minutes, gradually increasing the time. While visiting my granddaughters this week I have managed to take them to the pool four times. I walk forward and back, do lots of stretches and then tread water or swim the side stroke without touching the bottom. I know exactly what you are talking about! Water is wonderful for all sorts of things! I look forward to getting back to my water aerobics classes next week...I feel rejuvenated when I am through!

    I've never been a good swimmer - I can stay afloat and not drown but don't do much but a kind of side paddle. My friend and I used to walk in the water and I think even that is good exercise for some of us. Some gentle stretching thrown in at the end. I agree that water feels healing - even if you just walk around in it!

Cravings !

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I woke up this morning craving sweets! Cookies, muffins, pies, whatever. If I bake those I'll eat them ALL eventually.

Normally I avoid sweets like the plague. An easily-given-into addiction that will always be with me, so I am best staying away altogether.

This morning it just wouldn't go away. So I tried to think of what would satisfy that craving and not be a total disaster. Oatmeal is what I came up with. With raisins and vanilla soy milk. And I threw some walnuts in there for crunch.

So that is what I had and it worked. It is not what I consider a healthy breakfast, but it's not a disaster.

So disaster avoided and mission accomplished. One more time. And not the last time, I'm sure, lol.

Karen

In response to the question "Why is that not a healthy breakfast for me?"

82 g. carbs, 8 g. protein, 45 gm. sugar!!

For blood sugar balance, it's best to keep your carbs and proteins more balanced - protein at least half of your carbs, or more. The oatmeal was instant with 13 gms of sugar. Add 1/4 cup of raisins (might have been less, didn't measure) and 8 gms of sugar in the 1/2 cup soy milk - the sugar content was BAD.

The only reason this wasn't "disaster" is I only ate one serving. The other sweets mentioned would have been multiple servings and much worse.

If you really want to know what is "healthy" for you, start testing your blood sugar an hour after you eat. A real eye opener.

    I can eat the oatmeal in the morning - but only without sugar. I usually douse it with lots of cinnamon and then i add walnuts. That leaves the percentages of carbs more in my favor.

    It's really great that you found a way to short circuit this. Personally, I can't do oatmeal. It triggers me. Must be too many carbs for me to handle at one time. I used to fix steel cut oats and tried to force myself to eat them for years thinking it was so healthy and was relieved when I found out it wasn't. I really don't like them and found out, strangely enough, that I often don't like things that trigger me. Most of the things I hate are highly processed foods. I also wonder if I did myself a favor by doing the doctor's desensitization to dairy. Maybe my body knew it was not good for me and I should have continued to not eat them.

    That was a emoticon way to handle your craving attack. Not perfect, but so much better than it could have been. And don't we all face those attacks too. I understand why the meal was not healthy. I didn't know about the protein being half of your carbs, guess thats part of the MY PLATE pyramid. But it is something to remember. emoticon

As for an oatmeal breakfast, I enjoy old fashioned steel cut oats, skim milk and blueberries...45 carbs and 12 grams of protein. I had not heard the suggestion about your protein amounting to half the number of your carbs... interesting.

    Maybe a 2 hour after you eat blood sugar test? I have a friend who is diabetic and she said her dr. said testing two hours after a meal was sometimes better because some things are more of a slow acting carb and won't always show up in the first hour.

I'm not diabetic, but my dr. told me to check one hour AND two hours after a meal to see what happens... I've noticed at times it's higher on the two hour time lapse than the one hour....

Just my own observation!

Stress and Eating!

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

My recent bout of "The Troubles" (written about in several previous blogs), which I've re-named "Mother Madness" has earned me 3 extra pounds! I no longer come home and eat a pint of ice cream after dealing with my 90 year old, very independent and uncooperative mother. I'm thankful for that! However, I do still seem to compensate by overeating certain "comfort" foods. sigh

I'm stuck. Too old to be emancipated, lol. Can't divorce her. Have no siblings. If I ignore her, she's on the phone with a barrage of nastiness to both my sons, who are always wonderful to her and help me a lot. (She did tell someone at the grocery store the other day, where I take her at least once a week, that "I have no children" - I should have recorded that and made it official, hmm?)

I was only about 2 lbs from goal and now I'm 5 lbs from goal. While talking with my primary care physician this week, about my recent struggle to keep my blood pressure in line, we made a discovery that confirms what I already knew.

He took my BP first. It was a little high. Not unusual for a doctor's office visit. Then we talked about my mother a while and he took my BP again and it had gone UP 40 pts!

When stressed, my mind empties of all the good, healthy lifestyle proven ways of staying in a healthy zone, and I curl up and eat, don't exercise, etc. etc.

So, I'm promising myself to get a grip here! I'll go back in 6 months for the full blood test ritual and blood pressure, of course. I know what to do. I've developed my own plan over a period of a year's worth of trial and error. Now to JUST DO IT!

While in this process, I'm lowering my goal by 5 lbs too. I was at the top of my accepted range with the first goal. I know I'll be safer and healthier if I reach a slightly lower goal.

So here I go. Back to swimming, walking, cutting out starch and sugar as much as possible and consuming all the veggies I can! AND measuring blood pressure, blood sugar, logging food - every single day.

I've been down this path before. The tracks should be easy to follow, lol.

Karen

My stress from last year caused me to gain 10 pounds. I should say I let it be my excuse because actually I could have kept on exercising and eating correctly, but I instead used that as my excuse. Why or why do we do this to ourselves. We are old enough to know better and still we do it anyway.

God Bless you and one day you will have some peace of mind. Though it took me about 2 years to relax after she was gone...I, to this day, hate the phone ringing!

I've been too easy on myself over the years. So accommodating that I've kept giving myself a new "ceiling", i.e., top weight beyond which I won't go. I'm now working at knocking back one of those ceilings and once goal is reached, never to return to that easy goal. I'll soon have that 10 pound ceiling behind me (no joking!).

They tell me to just let her be the a** she has become, it's not her fault, there is nothing I can do about it. If I knew the answer I'd patent it and be a gazillionaire. At least I saw her MRI which showed all those hundreds of tiny strokes. Maybe your mother is the same?

Thank You for the Prayers!

Monday, March 04, 2013

My DIL sent me an email late last night which I found this morning as I sat here having coffee at my computer, a morning ritual for me.

She said little Sydney has some new hair growth in one of her bald spots! Finally! We have all been worrying and praying and I know that many of you joined us with your own prayers and wishes and positive thoughts.

So THANK YOU for all the Goodness you send Sydney's way. We're hoping this signals the beginning of the END of her problem!

A very happy Grandma.

My DIL requesting prayers for my granddaughter.

Friday, February 15, 2013

My DIL posted this on Facebook today:

"I would like to ask all my FB friends & family if you could pray for my daughter Sydney - for the last 4 months, she has been suffering from a case of alopecia & she's now almost completely bald in the back of her head. They think its from her tonsillectomy being so hard on her skinny little body. She is getting treated with high dose steroids one weekend a month to try & stop her immune system from attacking her hair but so far no luck. It hurts my heart to brush & fix her hair each morning trying to cover the bald areas because Sydney always had this very thick, beautiful hair. I know the power of prayer can get her hair growing again."

I thought I'd extend this prayer request to the kind members of SP. And thank you in advance for your prayers.

Sydney will be 10 next month. This is who you're praying for - - -

    My prayers are with Sydney and the whole family. I hope the problem is temporary. About 15 years ago I had some surgery on my face, and a month or so after about 1/3 of my hair fell out. I was horrified. Then months after that it all started growing out again. It drove my hairdresser crazy to have this halo of hair growing out within my other hair. My doc said that some people have this reaction to anesthesia. I've had other surgeries since and it hasn't happened again, but it was terrifying when it happened.
