Please excuse me all

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I'm so sorry I haven't been on here as much as I like to be.
I do work outside the home & well my daughter is having problems & she need my help being her mom I'm there for her.
She lost her job they denied her unemployment & well I have to help her.
So my time is very limited.
Once we do move to our own land things will be so much better I wont have to deal with non-family people(who live on this property).
So all please I WILL be back in full swing I hope soon, just this year has been a ruff one on a lot of people loosing there jobs & there homes too.
Thank God I own the home my daughter is in at least she wont be loosing that.
Thanks all & have a Great day!

No need to apologize. You're way above this game when it comes to encouraging others.

You take care of you and your business! People that can't understand are not worth understanding!

You know that everything will work out in the end just the way it should.

Hugs & strength to you,

My hurting hands.:-(

Thursday, June 03, 2010


It has been well over 1 month since my hands were badly hurt from redwood chips I used for my garden.
YES I wore gloves & all but as you will see in the video that I am still suffering & in very much pain.
It hurts to use my hands & to stop the burning feeling I carry around a frozen jell pack at night I take pain meds & yes during the day if I really need them.
Oh doing my workout when I sweat my hands burn even more..
Well I also in the video say what is going on too.
See for yourself..
Thanks

    You poor lady. That's horrible to go through during the hot weather. I want to cry for you. Time to go to the ocean and stick them in salt water. It may dry it out and heal it. I pray for a quick recovery for you. Take care, Hugs, Keke

    Hi all just found out that wild parsnips were in the redwood chips & I'm still effected as of today.
It takes a long time to heal BUT what activates it is heat & sun light so being a cook I'm around heat & I love to mow my lawn which lately has been torcher..
WELL at least I now know what is what caused the endless pain I'm in..

    My husband worked for a sign shop where they used treated wood for the sign posts; I showed him your video and he knew immediately that you had to have been handling treated wood.

I sure hope they are better now...?

    So sorry this happened to you, that looks so awful :(( I sure don't understand what happened though. How can redwood chips hurt you? An allergy that somehow got past the gloves you wore? If they affect you this badly, why are you using them at all?
Your hands remind me of an organic chemistry teacher -she is very allergic to latex, but for her job, rubber gloves are a necessity but she can't always use the non latex ones and her hands look like burnt sausages.
Hope you heal soon.

"Diet Pills'

Saturday, May 29, 2010

I heard on the news this morning that the FDA approved Ali, can & has caused liver damage in some users of this supplement.
I heard that people who do use this pill if they eat fats they cant control "pooping' there pants .
It's bad enough that we trust products to help us get healthy & only create other problems for our life's.
SO all YES I lived on 'Diet pills' for years & spent too much money & not lost 1oz except the money I paid out on them.
SO in a short & sweet way to say this is I learned you cant count on other's to lose the weight & getting healthy~IT is YOU who control's what YOU DO TO YOU!!
So it is a hard lesson I did learn & I have TON's on hindsight that you have to eat healthy & MOVE that body to get what you want & reach your goals.
BUT it isnt a 'DIET" it is a way of life you learn to live FOREVER!!
So yes I live a very healthy life style & YES I love & look very forward to my daily workouts.
Hey I feel younger!! So can YOU!!

    I also did my time with pills...and I agree with Sunmoonstar - if a pill didn't make me fat, it's not going to make me thin!

Thanks for sharing!

    You're so right! Its a lifestyle. Its not a "diet". The word diet in our society means temporary...go on a diet, off a diet once you reach your goal. Then, the weight comes back plus more! I feel younger and look forward to exercise also! We are blessed.

    Its not just the pills, but the idea people need surgery to prevent themselves from overeating!! Even these gastric bypass victims gain weight back because they just don't get it. It takes hard work and dedication to lose weight and keep it off. You can't just sit on your butt and watch it melt away and hope it stays away! Here is to living a healthy lifestyle!

Greek yogurt

Saturday, May 22, 2010

WOW is all I can say..
I never ever ate anything like this before.
To begin with I bought the Yopait kind with 2x the protein & yes I got the plain kind cause of the sugar content of the other ones..
BUT I can feel & taste the difference.
Really the protein BOOST.
One serving is 100 calories & has 14g of protein in it,10 carbs BUT I added a little milled flaxseed & blue berries.a packet of splenda.Taste really great!!
Oh yes the calcium is 35%, cant forget that!!
Got to try it if you havent!!
Hey Dr,OZ eats it every morning to start his day out right!

    Greek Yogurt is AWESOME, with breakfast I often eat half a container of Greek Yogurt(honey or mango apricot) or if I am running late a whole container with a peice of fruit.
I have also found it KILLS icecream cravings :)

  If you can find it, try Fage Greek yogurt 0% fat. It has 20 grams of protein in one cup and 9 grams of carbs. I put berries or other fruit on top and then add slivered almonds and/or walnuts. My favorite lunch!
