I was deep fried!

Monday, August 04, 2014

Had a great weekend kayaking and camping. But i waited to long to re-apply sunscreen and look like a lobster. Stripped down, the front of me looks like i have a white bikini top and shorts on. The rest is red....well turning purple now. Blisters started last night and today. I've been using Silvidene, Burn Jel Plus and Aloe. Any suggestions? I've heard vinegar and tea. How do i do those?

    I pick a team each day and find someone that is not on my friend list and read there page and blog, and today it is you. And as soon as I got to your page I recognized your icon, you have been on my page before.

Sorry about the sunburn, they are so painful and then the blisters, ouch. I feel for you. The vinegar you just dab on, but you have such a large area, maybe put it in a spray bottle and just spray yourself. Hope you get relief soon. Linda

    They make this stuff call sunscreen that is awesome. emoticon

Aloe vera is a tried and true remedy ,

Take care of your skin while you're young - I think the science is saying that damage during that stage may lead to the bad stuff later.

Hope you otherwise had a great time - it sounded like it was going to be a blast.

Have a great week!

Kayaking/Camping trip

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Going kayaking Saturday morning, camping on the sand bar and leaving Sunday morning. We love to kayak, but haven't went in a few years. Our two friends invited us and i guess there will be 8 or 9 other people too. We have never camped while kayaking, so i'm trying to make a list of what we need, and figure out how to fit it all in the 2 kayaks. We bought a small two person tent, and a one burner small propane stove. We can share a sleeping bag and pillow. For food were thinking maybe sandwiches for lunch, and not sure on dinner yet. Bringing a small pan with us for ham and egg whites for breakfast. I'm a little nervous to meet new people. And i tried on my two piece bathing suite from last year and it was bad. I have gained about 15lbs since and it definitely shows. I will probably cover it with shorts and a sleeveless shirt. At least my arms will get a good workout. And its going to be sunny and 80 during the day and 60 for a low.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Just make sure everything stays dry - even if it goes in the water.

Sounds awesome. Have fun. Be safe.

Work golf outing

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Every year my work has a golf outing for one afternoon. We close down the office at 12pm, go eat lunch then golf until about 4pm. This will be my exercise for today.

But we also get free drink tickets.... a lot of drink tickets. I usually have quite a few drinks but this time I'm going to try to take it slow. Since it's going to be 82 and sunny, I'm going to try to stick with water.....But i might have a drink or two in between waters. We'll see.

Hope everyone has a great wednesday!

Change is hard

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Day #33 of no smoking, but i'm still using my vaper e-cig thingy. I want to change flavors and lower the nicotine level. I have noticed that I've been using it less and less. emoticon

I have been eating healthier and watching my portions. Yesterday my work brought in Jethros BBQ (which i love!) So i had a small bowl of the Macaroni and Cheese (my fav) and stuck with the healthy lunch that i brought. On the weekends we tend to eat out a lot, but I choose a healthy salad or chicken rather than fries and burgers. emoticon

Last night i decided not to drink. Then i decided i would only have 3 beers. But then it turned into 6 beers. So, I'm starting over....again....going to try to be AF tonight emoticon

Hope everyone is having a great start to a new month, make good choices!

    Way to go! Even though you stumbled you get up, dust yourself off and try again. Best of luck on your journey.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
