Time to get serious

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Two months ago I went and walked with my Spark friends. We were a small group but it was wonderful to be able to meet the people we talk to on line. I have missed the event the last two months.. Once because I had other plans but last month because I have been tired.
I found an article in the newspaper today about the cholesterol lowering drug I am taking.
It turns out the side effects are possible joint discomfort and tiredness.
Golly if I can have the help with my cholesterol, and the only result is a little tiredness, it is a good tradeoff. I just have to start going to bed one half hour earlier, to start.
I have been off meat and poultry since Ash Wednesday. I am really thinking about going vegetarian. I am less hungry and have less stomach upsets. I diet one day at a time so ...I will just not worry about tomorrow and just do my food plan and exercise today....
Boy I am the queen of the run on sentence. Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Have you tried not eating meat and poultry?

    emoticonI don't eat much beef but do like fish and chicken --I like veggies but don't care to become just a veggie eater

Moderation would be the key for me--sounds simple --I am working on it. emoticon

    I was vegetarian for 10 years starting in college, then gave in one day in the face of the best Carne Asada burrito I've ever had. Since then I've tried to incorporate meatless days into the week, we're up to 3 or 4 days a week, and the kids don't even mind!

    Sometimes I wonder if prescription drugs do help. Good Luck!

    I have been on Lipitor for high cholesterol for about 3-4 years now. My last blood test the doctor said my numbers looked really good and if I can keep up the exercise every week for at least 3 months, he will take me off the pills! So diet and exercise, and a good night's sleep really makes a difference!
I missed the last meet up also. I hope we can both make the next one:)

    I rarely eat beef, but I do enjoy turkey and chicken and fish. From time to time I will enjoy some very lean pork..
Cholesterol numbers.... yah I know what you mean. I am waiting this morning for the results of my blood work yesterday. I hope they are good. I do not take statins but sometimes I am still TIRED. I guess mainly it is boredom from being in the house so darn much during all this rainy weather we have had. I'll feel better NOW that it is SPRING.

Thanks, yes - it IS TIME TO GET SERIOUS. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Things keep happening

Sunday, April 03, 2011

What a difference ten years can make. I cannot believe my aunt and my mother looks so much healthier. Oh well. I do not want to go back and visit because it just hurts too much and I cannot believe that my sister and brother deal with the changes every day.
Living far away means all I can do is pray that mom will be comfortable on this last part of her journey. Sorry for the sad post but....

    It is unbelievable what a difference 10, or even just a few, years can make.
Sorry it's so painful right now for you.

    Thank you so much for sharing this part of your life. They do look healthier than the 'before' picture. And I guess you are right about not wanting to go back for a visit. Better to enjoy the pictures and say the prayers.

Am I being unreasonable

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I went to the doctor today and instead of hubby asking how I was, he ranted about my goofing up his tevo of Judge Judy which I only did because he was taping something else on the other TV.
I feel like he did not care.. And he left me the dishes he used to clean up.
And he put his shoes on the counter. His filthy shoes!
So I won't talk to him.
By the way I got over it .... but I still hate shoes on my kitchen counters.

    No your not unreasonable, some men are just pathetic and careless and only care for themselves. Believe me I speak from experience as I am married to one!

    I wouldn't talk to him either.
OH MY GAWD.......shoes on the counter? even on the table would make me come unglued.......

How did you do at the doctors? You can call me if you want. You have my number.

Sounds like he has finally hit the 'GRUMPY OLD MAN' part in his life..............

Wanna go out for BEER AND CORNED BEEF???
(P.S. he's NOT invited. hahahahahahahaha) emoticon

I am sure there is a pub somewhere that serves it.

If all I want is...

Sunday, March 13, 2011

If all I want is cooked onions, why do I have to sift through 100 items to find it?
I just think easy things should just show up.
and the amount of duplication is simply ridiculous.
And the amount of fast food is ridiculous!
So do I have to go to another web site to get a more reasonable food diary?
