hairs cut day

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Today was the day to get my hairs cut. I also got some coloring applied. IF my hair did not look like dirty salt and pepper, I would let it go natural, but even for me, I cannot abide that dirty grey look. On anybody. WHen mine turns snow white like all the chickies in my family, I will be thrilled to let it grow out.. Luckily for me, the local Beauty Academy is extremely inexpensive .

I got a cut, color, highlights(15 foils!), style,, for $40!!! This kind of beauty doesn't just "happen"!! emoticon
I had lots of fun with my friends there too... it is 71 degrees outdoors and I hope the snow stays away for at least a week!

Feeling a lot better, back to work,,

I really love Puritans Pride to get my supplements. I ordered them March 6, they were shipped out on March 9, I received them yesterday via UPS. I am now taking white kidney bean extract for carb matabolism .. chlorella for mercury purging in my system. I have the 7 keto on back order,, apparently Dr. Oz influenced so many people to take it that even the health food stores are taking names for back orders!! That is a major dietary metabolism booster,.

My doctor appt. is 3/19/2012,, I will be bring them along to show him..
UPS truck just came: I now have the 7-keto.. took one,, Dr. Oz instructed us to take one a day, then gradually build to two, then three, then top at four a day. We will see if this helps me metabolize food better,,, I have been tested many, many, many times for thyroid dysfunction, but it always comes back very normal..

    Please be sure you tell your Doctor or all of your supplements and vitamins. Some do not interact well with each other or with other medications.

Remember just because something is natural it does not necessarily mean it is good for you!

I started to take a multivitamin with iron and next time I had blood tests I got a call from the DR as soon as they saw the results - turns out I had gone into iron overload they asked what I was eating etc - I told them I was taking the vitamins and was told to stop taking it immediately. Also my potassium levels were way too high. Everyone is differnt and vitamins and natural supplements and certain mixes of them are not always the best thing for your health.

That said - if they work for you and the Dr says it is okay - I wish you great success with them.

    LINDA, It sounds like Dr Oz is on every body's lips except mine. I never knew what he looked like till I walked in to a pharmacy and there was a huge poster of him advertising something or other.
I am way too sensitive to take supplements these days. Are you able to check where they come from.

We finally got in to the 50's yesterday but we are going back down to much colder weather for a few days. My bulbs are almost all through now so once it dries out I will have some yard work to do. Take care of yourself HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am not familiar with forskolin, but the 7 keto did say the thing about high BP, but so does OTC stuff,, I, too had the big "H" in the early 90's..
I will discuss it with doc next monday,,

    sounds like you're alls tocked up for the next few years. Plus the free botles you receive.
I hope they do their job on you.

I do know the one supplement i got from Puritans pride sure does it's job. I bot Papaya enzyme if i get some food stuck oin down i take 2 or 3 of them and it clears through toe bite of food that is stuck almost immediately.

    I told my sister about 7-Keto and Forskolin the other day and she purchased them. I'm not sure which one did what but she said one of them says not to take it if you have high blood pressure (she has it) and the other one made her feel nauseated. I may have to buy them from her when I can find an extra $65.

I have also had my thyroid checked only to learn it's normal. I've decided to attribute my weight problems to menopause. I have no idea if it's really true because I had a hysterectomy way back in the 90s.

I feel like a lazy, sun-heated lioness, yawning, wriggling around in my flannel sheets, flannel nightie, two blankets and a quilt.. not wanting to let that lost hour of sleep get to me, so I feel like I should lie in bed an extra hour,, Bless Jesus, I do not work weekends anymore!! Meow!!

    That sounds like a delicious morning. My husband didn't make enough noise to awaken me this morning until 9:15am. I felt absolutely sinful.

Saturday, in the dark,,,

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Best time of day,, an hour before sunrise so I can make my cuppa,,,
watch the sun rise(if there is no snow or there are no clouds.)
It is 19 degrees and overcast, so no sunrise today.. oh well, lots to do indoors..
counting off the days until vacation: 159 days!!

I am hoping to strengthen my legs and arms more between now and then for hiking and swimming in Lake Superior. It is not the same as in my pool or our inland lakes.. if it can swallow the Edmund Fitzgerald and thousands of other freighters, no matter how big I am, it can take me down!!
