My new favorite salad dressing, Kens French with Applewood smoked bacon.
It is not low cal, its 140 calories for 2 tbsps. But soooo worth it, it is sweet and I love it.
But only occasionally at that calorie range.
Anyway, I decided not to go to the doctor today. I figured that there wasnt a whole lot she could do for me. Prescribe me something for my throat. So, I went to the grocery store and stopped off at the liquor store and picked up some jack daniels and honey for hot toddies.
It was good enough for grandma!!!
haha.....Am planning to take a good hot shower later, maybe fire up the vaporizer and drink a hot toddie before bed, maybe I will finally sleep.
I think since Tuesday I have slept all of about 6 hours.
I dont know what is up with that....last night it was just so hot, I woke up at 230 after about 2 hours of sleep, I got up.
Maybe too much on my mind. It has been 2 weeks today since I got all my medical info turned in to my doctors to submit to the insurance company concerning my approval for surgery.
And, still no answer back. I am worried the cardiologist is going to hold me up.
I have got to get my air conditioner fixed in my car.
Another hot day like today....I cant take too many hot days in that car.
Hope each of you had a nice day, hope the weather is nice where you are and all is well.

I woke up yesterday morning with a scratchy throat, but I put it off as allergies, since the evening before we had mowed the grass and cut weeds, as did my neighbor. So, I assumed it was just that.
But as the evening went on I began to hurt even more. So, going to the Tim McGraw concert last night, of course, yelling and woohooing and shouting and hooping didnt do my throat much good.
And, being out in the cold night air and sprinkling rain, walking to the car after, I am sure only added to it.
So, by the time I got home last night, I knew I was sick. I was aching all over and woke up with a stuffy nose, body aches and sore throat.
I just got over this!
I went and looked at my receipt for when I purchased some cold medicine and it was only March 24th. I thought I was better.
Is my immune system weakened?
How did I get sick again so soon? A good friend of mine who is an RN, told me it sounded like the flu.
So, tomorrow, off I go to the doctor, which I had thought I would be done with until at least June, to get tested for flu and see what I can do to get over this.
But I did have a good time at the concert. If you ever get a chance to see Luke Bryan live, I say go for it.
Tim McGraw was the main attraction of course and he did a great job, but this Luke Bryan guy was fantastic, his band came out playing AC/DC and during the night they played their country songs, blended in with Metallica and even some Lionel Ritchie.
It was a great night.
I only got in a short workout yesterday, and didnt do any today as I felt so bad, althought I have cleaned house and did laundry all day....so does that count for anything?
But we were in the upper section in row M, which meant from the floor we had to walk up 13 very steep steps to our seats and I must have made that climb 4 or 5 times going to the bathroom and for refreshments.
So I am counting that as a "workout" haha.
But, it was a good night.
Although, outside, and we didnt know this until we came out, there was an awful thunder and wind storm hitting the area.
The power did knock at least 2 times inside the arena, but they had back up power and the power never fully went off inside, so we werent even fully aware of what had happened.
The only thing we saw was that the big screens and some of the lighting was messed up for awhile.
But the sound was great, it was booming thundering music and the crowds screams and singing along.
When we got closer to home, we began to see some of the damage, trees and mudslides along the roadway and a roof blown off a drug store in town.
My friend who lives about 3 miles from me still was without power at 5 pm today.
But we were luckier, we didnt lose power and no damage, so that was a blessing.
I am sure hoping I dont have the flu and that maybe it will pass quickly and I can get back to normal, whatever that is.
Hope you all have had a good day. Will add pics my son took a few. Pics are of me and my best friend Pam, my son Jason in the blue shirt, me and my honey Bill in the orange shirts and of course the concert.

So, today I got in a pretty good work out, focusing more on strength training, the upper back and arms.
Did a little (but not enough) cardio.
Hoping soon the rain and wind that has been here for so long, will go away and I can finally walk.
It seems when I think its going to be a good day for it, as soon as I step out, the wind gets so bad, I end up running for cover.
But overall, it was a pretty good day, went with honey to his docs appt after he came from work and then went to eat.
Had a chicken club and ok ok, I did have a COKE....
But I cant help it, its my fall from grace.
That monkey on my back...I once blogged about my drug of choice and how my dealer was on every street...waiting for my money, luring me, seducing me the ice cold red can!!!!!!
Hope all of you had a good day and stay out of meanness!!!!

A nice day here today. Got some cleaning done. Emptied out some drawers and storage boxes.
Not much else to report today. My back is hurting and I am going to take a hot shower and use my shiatsu massaging back pad for awhile.
I hope each of you had a nice day and stuck it out.

The following blog is an exchange of emails I had first thing this morning....I log onto SP, and have mail, its from someone I dont recognize, but being that its SP, I think ok, it will be ok....so I respond.
Now, As soon I get the first reply I am leary, but I go on...and right away I feel uncomfortable, thinking something isnt right.
I think I was right. So, after this exchange, I report this to SP...This is word for word the emails, however, I did delete part of his name, just to keep from being accused of anything myself, but if anyone wants to know, in case they themselves want to be on the watch for this person, just private mail me and I will give you the name.
So ladies can be on the lookout, So here it is you decide how you would have reacted.

I would like someone that I can email when i have issues, or maybe daily with my weight or something. Would also like to share my "weight loss" pics i take in the mirror most mornings.
I am not sure what your comfort level is or what you are willing to do, just let me know. I can do all the same for you. The biggest thing is to overcome your fear of what your body looks like to others. So sharing pics with people you will not see personaly is a great step.

Subject: RE: support
Message: Ok, well I dont belong to that group, am I being punked? or are you for real? But good luck to you, I would never put naked pictures of myself on here or anyplace else online.
But whatever floats your boat.
this is my message to them-(SP)---(> (i received a message from this I GUY, and thought at first he was > just wanting a friend to help out with his weight and health issues...but, > i am not so sure...may be innocent but thought it warranted sending to be > checked out, thanks)-----------------------------------
Here is their reply back to me----
(He's on a SparkTeam called "Look Better Naked". I think that's what he was referring to. I think this message is okay, but if you see anything further from him that seems inappropriate, please report it and we'll check it out.)
So, I guess my question is, did I do the right thing? Were my feelings about this on the mark? After I responded that I wouldnt put pics of myself on here, he never responded back.
I do think this was someone being inappropriate. I wonder how far he would have gone had I kept it going? And, I wonder when SP would have felt it warranted looking into?????
People have to beware of online predators, not just young kids.
But everyone. A friend of mine recently came home to find someone had tried to break into her back door. She really believes it was because she and her daughter had both posted on Facebook that they were off on a shopping trip and that her hubby was working.
Someone not on my friends list recently posted a comment on my page, and while it was probably a friend of a friend, it wasnt anything bad, but I felt like my business was too out there, so I went in and reset my settings to private to friends only and also made most of my pics private.
But, back to the matter of this person. His page was private, if I clicked on it, it was private, yet he was able to contact me, I would like to see SP change settings so that if one doesnt make their page available, at least to those they email, then at least have the emails go thru a moderator of some sort.
I know that is asking alot. But I am not on here looking for a hook up nor am I on here wanting to look at some naked strangers.
I dont really know if SP looked into this guy, I rather hope they did, to see if he was sending these emails to others.
But, do you all think I did the right thing or over-reacted....and am I currently over-reacting???
I mean if the guys page was available to view, I would at least have some info to go on, so he can see me and my page....and yet right now I still dont have a clue who he is or where he saw me.
I feel kinda creeped out.
Like I said, if anyone especially ladies want to know his name, just message me and I will put it up so you can be aware.
Other than that, I had an ok day. The weather was good here finally, no rain and even a little sun.
I had a nice Subway dinner.
And watched some of the wedding.
Too bad the news outlets focused SOOOOOO much attention on it....it might not have been that bad, had it not been for the tornados that devasted a good part of the South....I think the death toll is estimated at around 315 or so.
I think the "news" could have covered that more and given the wedding a sideline.
But thats just me.
Have a nice, CREEP free night.
