Sleeppy Saturday

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Good monring sparkers! dull and cool in my area of our world. But hey we didn't get the winter storm they forcast at all so no problem with dull. Hoping that if it rains as they now say, it stays warmer so it doesn't freeze as we have an hr drive and then back later this eve.
Going to help sil who is moving as her hubby is screwing around. hubby, other sister and myself going to help her get started figuring and packing.
Well slept well till hubby came to bed at 2:15 I almost always wake up and then dont sleep as well after. 5am had pain in my back and R butt again, but enough to make abeing comfy okay but not the normal pain number. Allie woke at 5;30 again, sigh but at 6 I said okay downstairs dont want to start taking her out at that time, but she only wanted to lay on the couch so I left her.She came back up at 6;45 to go out. early but thats okay it is what I want her to learn, to know to come get me.
Pretty sure I am detoxing the past few days, a few sx that are diff. TMI here lol let's just say I can be stinky! lol
Feeling good though, Know my numbers will help my CAT team, lol like biggest loser lol I pulled a big number ! Trying to figure what to have cos sil is taking sil out for lunch and of course we are going too. I will have to say please no chinese as haven't a clue as to gf, SUGAR free , and dairy in chinese nothing I think. lol I hope she thinks of somewhere I can order soup or salad. I am bringing some greek yog, berries and nuts with me, cos know hubby and sil will stp for something at TIMS nothing there but green tea for me. lol Thats' okay I usually get a green tea.
Well have to go get hubby up as we are leaving in a bit. I have eaten so I could take my supplements, and am now burping garlic ewww. lol
I hpe you all have a good day, ours will be mixed I am sure, tears for sil, but we hope some laughs or at least smiles. Hard to get started on this. her hubby is 65 and had decided that she isnt' fun enough.... dd 19 is having a real problem she is thin to start, and now is way down to barely 100 lbs. wont bein the same room, won't talk to him on phone. nothing she is very religious and besides hurting them she is so angry at the marriage vows being broken as he is with another woman.
So tomorrow i have to help dad find his bank book. totally diff. scenario! LOL

    We have a wonderful chinese buffet here. I can find gluten free, sugar free, and dairy free:

Hot and sour soup or egg drop soup
4 steamed and cooled shrimp
greenbeans with garlic
steamed broccoli
fresh fruit: I can usually find cantaloupe and red grapes
salad greens

The combination dishes of veggies, meat, and sauce might be okay as long as the meat wasn't breaded and fried. But ask about the sauce, if it was thickened with flour, (gluten) or corn starch (no gluten)

Your wonton soup might be okay of they were made with rice flour wontons instead of wheat flour wontons. Same for the pot stickers or egg rolls. But I think I'd be suspicious about the wrappers having gluten.

An authentic chinese restaurant might coat meat before frying with rice flour, but I think the chains are purchasing already breaded and frozen meats so you can pretty much expect that any breaded food has gluten.

The only thing I have to worry about with this meal is the huge amount of sodium in the greenbeans and garlic, and the soup. I drink lots of tea while I'm there. I drink lots of water before I go and after I go to wash out the sodium and possible MSG.

    I totally agree with you on chinese. My sis and I used to love it, but we went gluten free. Also sugar and salt could be anywhere. Who knows what else. Better to make it at home. Take care of your back!

Fantastic Friday

Friday, March 01, 2013

I am the happiest I have been in so long. For any one that has chronic pain or has had bad back pain anytime you will understand. The dog woke me at 5;30 making that vomiting noise. I got out of bed, to see where she was and such and she was okay tiny bit of bile for those worried about Alile LOL but I got back in bed and realized OMG OMG I just plain ole got up. Usually in the night or first time in am, I have to sit up, few deep breaths, stand, wait, hold the door frame and hobble bent over for the first 2 feet or so. I just got up!

Yesterday wasn't a good day for pain in my knee, I nearlly buckled a few times the pain in the back would sort of kink and I felt as if it was going to give. My back wasn't good either. I got frustrated cos hubby was being sympathetic but not helping. Not much good when you say boy oyou aren't walking well but don't offer to walk the dog. Oh well got quiet, he knew something was up, probably knew why. He helped a bit with supper and did take her out. Later I took her to dd to play with her sister and tire her out. So was a good eve and all is fine.

BUT I am really going to make sure I walk, sit, walk not just sit, I am going to remember to do my posture stuff and see how long I can be on a lower than 7 pain scale!!!
Now is it the weather change as I am a barometer, the naturopath regime, the SierraSil or losing 8 lbs. I don't know sure it is a combo but hey!!! For now, in this moment I am so pleased.

Now off to walk around the house lol. I also got my yarn for my spring scarf so may do a bit of that cos I can sit, stand and then stop.

HUGS and I am jumping for joy...Not! lol but definately moving easier!

My daughter has taught herself to crochet, she has started making hats and scarves that are very diff. She made her hubby a bacon and egg scarf, a friend a carrot one, and another friend a cupcake one. She just finished the monster hat and I like the monkey hat so we modeled them for her. LOL here we are!

If it is sideways sorry, she sent it that way and I haven't a clue how to fix that!

So had a good day, pain probably 8 or more, then chiro and the table was great this time, I almost fell asleep. Thinking masssge and the strange happening was too much with chiro so soon after. So sore now but not as bad as before chiro and I so hope I sleep more this eve. We have been letting allie upstairs with us, but not sure if she misses her kennel as she doens't settle we and is waking me at 6:30. was 5:30 today but took her out to pee and back in. She didnt really rest after. So not sure if will put her back in her kennel but we want to get rid of it soon.

Okay off to drink my spinach and froz fruit, yog and almond milk. Hadn't gotten my 2 cups of greens or had my fruit or 1 dairy so figured that would cover it all. Had lots of veggies for supper.

Night all, hope I sleep and you guys do too.

    Very cute hats! Try opening the pic where ever you stored it. In Windows viewer there is a toolbar at the bottom. There should be an icon that looks like triangles for rotating either clockwise or counterclockwise. emoticon

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

This blog is a thank you to a few spark friends. I am pretty sure they will know who they are and if I don't mention anyone then I don't risk missing any!
I have been told by a few friends and a few drop by my page, that I have inspired some people and that they enjoy coming to my page. WOW you don't know how amazed and proud that makes me. For the better part of my life I have been more neg. than positive, having great role models that brought me up, sigh. But that is long ago and

now it is my choice and up to me. So for the past while I have been trying to think more positive and do more positive. It is working, slowly but surely. I also have forgotten how many times I had done well, going through old comments, and now blogs of mine have helped me to see that there have been times on this journey that I have done well and been consistent.

So my goal now is to think positive, do healthy things with purpose and not let myself get mired down. I have always smiled at people in stores etc. but now I will smile at myself more often.

Thanks so much for the sweet, kind words, that have made me realize Hey I am not as "lost" as I percieve myself to be.

HUGS you spark friends without you guys I probably would have been gone long ago.

Fantastic Monday

Monday, February 25, 2013

Sunny so of course cold. Always cold when it is sunny in the winter here. But I am feeling good, my back is really sore when I first stand up no matter if sitting for few sec or longer or laying down. Laying down I can barely roll over at all and on my back to lay is impossible I either get bad back pain or charley horses. BUT I do feel good I feel more energetic and am pacing what I do, I will do a few dishes, then stop and dry some or do something else rather than stand at the sink too long.
Food wise, I am doing okay, So far not had any hicups and no cravings. Ironically, hubby still has chips ( never my big favor)and biscotii around and there are bananas on the counter and I am fine. The only thing I have even thought of has been this dessert that we make with pineapple, rice and pineapple juice then you add whipping cream or cool whip. That I would like. lol
Not a lot of side effects, my arm was so itchy again last eve, only thing that helps is ice. I haven't really noticed anything else negative. I have lost wt, feel more energetic ( she upped my vit d to 4,000 IU) and better. I am liking myself despite the pain.
Well going to go down and see if dad will have a shower if I stay down there, His excuse I a always tired, well you lay down after you get home so have a shower then lay down anyway. Will see.
Off I go wish me luck, sad to admit but he hasn't showered since he moved in, yet made such a fuss about having it all.
Cya I am having a marvelous day and for Caz-- I am Jaimie more often than before! LOL
HUGS all.

Back to say he said yes!! hair wash and all. He will feel so much better even if he is tired. YES!!!! aclean manlol
