Party over

Monday, October 28, 2013

What a great time we all had, there were 31-34 people there, and the food was great, though I didn't eat a lot of it, but from the comments everyone made, they loved it.

I dressed up like a ghost, had white material underneath a grey lacy material, 3 shot wounds in my head, white face, hands, and a wig that drove me nuts anytime I tried to use the br, or just walked from the fire to the house because it caught up anything that was on the ground.

It was an ankle length black wig and I'm telling you, I will NEVER grow my hair long like that, ever! One thing you learn, if you have long hair, you never wear it down. *LOL*

Anyway, stayed overnight and cleaned up on Sunday and then back home late. It was a very successful Halloween Party/Open house at our daughters and her bf's. What great fun.

UPDATE: I actually was able to do my "walking" video, and did 20 minutes worth, YAY!! much better than I was able to do last week, so I'm back in the saddle again!

Have a wonderful day, everyone, I know I will. emoticon

Just wondering

Friday, October 25, 2013

I'm wondering if I'm coming down with something, because my body has just been feeling really weak lately, and I'm not sure why. It's not like me to not be able to even do my exercises. But then again I've not been sick at all this year to not be able to do my exercises, so I'm really not sure what's going on. I feel fine except for feeling tired. My right elbow hurts a lot this morning, and I'm not sure why, I don't recall hitting it on anything, but then again, I do a lot of things and don't recall doing it, do that's possible.

I've been working hard to help our daughter prepare for the Halloween party and I feel like I'm getting more behind. I had planned on having the pumpkin done yesterday, but I'm still working to get it done, I don't know what's going on, but I wish I felt better. I just can't figure it out. I was at the Doctor on Wednesday for my 6 month (he had me make an appointment for 4 months, which is different than my usual, new doctor, my other one retired, which I don't really like having to go every 4 months at all. Beginning to believe this doctor just wants the money, don't know, he seems nice enough. Don't like the fact he didn't check my feet either, for a Diabetic that's very important, guess I'll mention it next appointment).

Anyway, I need to get back to carving pumpkins, I'm hoping tomorrow I feel better. Have a great day, everyone, and don't forget that smile. emoticon

    Hey, girlfriend! Yep...it is difficult to get gong with a new doctor. Many times in our clinic our new patients are brought back early to make sure that labs and info is established ...doctors don't like taking medical information from records only and if their really conscientious they'll develop a new care plan (even if it's based on old information). We only do foot checks yearly unless the patient tells us that they have a problem..but we usually ask at the check in. DM is a bear to deal with...I had too many carbs today and just collapsed for a long nap this evening...Your tiredness could be weather, glucose level fluctuations, or just all the activities you've been doing. Pace yourself, keep track of your levels and give the doctor a chance. If the weird feelings keep on...let him know. Sorry if I've nosed in too much...I care. Keep Sparkin'!!!

    Yeah, it's getting to be that time of year. I have been feeling a little out of it this week, too. My walks have felt very strenuous. Take care of yourself this weekend!

Sleep problems...with 8 hours of sleep.....now what?

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I've been working on our daughter's Halloween party which is Saturday, it snowed yesterday, so it's kind of hard to get going on it, normally it's here at the house, so I'm not really in the mood to do it, but I know I need to get going on it. I've been feeling tired, I think it's because normally I go to bed at 2 am and I've been going to bed around 1130-midnight. I don't know why I should be tired going to bed earlier, but man, I really am. I'm getting 8 or 8.5 hours of sleep and I really need to get back to getting less, this is raising havoc on me, for some reason. I'm feeling so drug out it's not funny.

I seem to feel so much better with lots less sleep. I know they get after you for getting 7 hours and less sleep, but wow, I do feel so much better getting 7 hours of sleep, than 8 and more. Is that weird or what? I can't help it, I just can't handle this 8 hours and more of sleep, it's really doing me in. so what do you do when this happens. I'm telling you, I just don't know if I can do this anymore. I've been doing 8 hours of sleep for nearly a week now, and I'm really feeling like I'm sick, that's how bad it is....I don't know if I can do this anymore.

So that's the delimna.....how do I "fix" it...go back to less sleep, or stick with it...I'm lost....any suggestions? emoticon

    I have been having trouble getting 7-8 also. I want to, but my body won't comply! So, I at least "rest". I read an article about resting/sleeping and it said even if you can't sleep a solid seven to eight hours, at least rest. So, sometimes, I just lay there as if I was sleeping and my body rests. Works for me!

    your body has to adapt. I've been there. I'm used to getting 4-5 hours sleep a night and have been striving to increase that to 8. I'm up to 6-6.5 average and there are days that I just feel bad after sleeping so 'long'. but eventually it will be oday. I'm adding about 15-30 minutes every 2-3 weeks so it's slow going and I wake up a lot..but I know that it will be worth it in the end. Keep Sparkin'!

Finally!!

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I had such a great day today, our son had asked me last week to go to the Halloween stores with him...he didn't want to buy anything, he just wanted to go somewhere with me, and I'm so happy, you can't even imagine. He has never asked to go with me anywhere, but he has gone if I asked him to. He is such a wonderful son, we're so blessed.

I wish and pray that he find a girlfriend, he's so lonely, but then again, he's very shy. All of his friends, the female ones, have a boyfriend, and I so wish he could find one. He'd make the best Dad ever, because all the kids seem to flock to him so he'll play with them. He teases and jokes with them, which they love, and he is just the kindest person. That's what my prayers focus on so much now, is his happiness.

I had such a great time with him today I wish we could do it all the time.

I got a wig to go with my costume, and things to make treats for the party Saturday. I hope it doesn't rain, it wasn't supposed to, but now it says it is.

Oh, I LOVE the exercise DVD, it was very wearing, but well worth it. I went to my Endocrinologist today and he said everything was perfect (Diabetes-wise; after having it since 1975, that's great news), PLUS I'd gone from 163 to 157.12. YES finally I've lost weight! I've waited since March to hear I've lost more weight, and finally it's happened!

Well that's my day for today, I'm going to be very busy tomorrow, cooking, and Friday. I hope you're day is wonderful, too!

New video

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I had won a video on the spin, something I'd never expected and I'm going to try it today instead of my usual walking video...I just hope I don't drop over. :D Actually I hope there's nothing involving getting down on the floor or on my knees, I can't do either of those. I get on the floor and I have a hard time getting up, because I can't get on my knees (without a ton of pain because I'd fallen last year 2 times within a 2 week period, both times flat on my knees, once on our living room floor, the other time on concrete. Both times I'd tripped over something; a tablecloth and concrete that was bulged up).

Anyway, I'm looking forward to being able to try this, I hope I can do it, because I'm so excited about it.

So off I go to try it out, after finishing up here. Have a great day everyone, and don't forget those smiles! emoticon

    Knee injuries are the pits! I got one from falling and one from sitting (now that's a story!). I don't understand about winning the video.
