well i finally made it to the beauty salon and got my hair cut and my highlights, i feel so much better, it was sooo hot again today, it felt good to get rid of the extra hair...i have done so so the last 2 days, have gone over calories just a smidge...
but, i am drinking my water and i went and looked at recumbant bikes at kmart today, so, that is my birthday wish gift from hubby this year...since they are on sale, im trying to convince him to just go ahead and get it a month early....
i sure hope we get a break from the heat soon it just seems this has been the hottest summer in forever...i so dread to see my electric bill next month.
i sure hope all of you have a great weekend and stay on track and try to stay cool....
i hope my pic is viewable, will add some more soon....

So today I had physical therapy, and I was told, I can start back on the walking track. Slowly, he said, about 5 minutes to start about 2 times a week, hardly seemed worth it, but, its a start, and since Sat, I walked all around the super Walmart for the first time since before my June 4th injury, he seemed to think I can do little bits at a time.
I am still using the recumbant bike and leg press and still cannot straighten my leg fully, alot of pain today. The weather? Started out hot hot hot, CALIENTE!!!!....and is still hot, but, we did get some good heavy rain, which parts of the area do not need because they are still cleaning up from the flood damage.
But I enjoyed the showers, it cooled things down some. I have stayed on track today and saved up some calories for my late snacking problem, but, tonight if I get a craving, I am set, I have WW chocolate desserts, for my sweet tooth, and baked chips for my crunch craving or carrot sticks and I have yogurt and mangos.....
I get my hair done on Friday, thank you to the Gods of Hair....because I need it badly....
I am forcing myself to use the cpap mask, today I took an hour nap and used it, although, I only actually napped about 30 minutes, the rest of the time I was fighting to keep air from leaking out.
I take the machine in on Friday to have the setting changed and I am taking my mask to see if the technician can recommend a new one or show me some trick to work better with the one I have.
Now, the only downside news I have, my car, its still leaking and had to put it under cover again....I spoke to a good friend who works on cars and he said have all that drainage vents or hoses removed and checked for clogs and replaced....
So, hopefully by next week that will be taken care of...and, hopefully, I will be down 3lbs by next Wednesday, that is my goal....I cant burn alot of calories walking, I am weight lifting and I am going to start adding more as I can....Hopefully this heat breaks by Sept, I will be back on the walking track everyday.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL AND HAVE A NICE DAY....

so today i went back to the doctor who is monitoring my sleep apnea, this was my first visit back to him since i had had my sleep study...due to my knee injury and the surgery that followed, i had to postpone this appt twice
...but i got somewhat happy news, the lab had set my pressure at a maximum of 14, but, he is ordering it cut back to 10, he said, my problem wasnt as bad as some he has seen, very little snoring and only a few minor leg jerks during the night. and of course the breathing, he said i had stopped 11 times during the sleep lab....i am doing some research to see if this is a high number or not...i dont think it is.
..and my bp was down, 130/84...which was great, this doc is really down to earth and doesnt come in the room acting like hes going to snap your head off....
now for the almost happy news, i had purchased 2 bras, one in a size smaller than the one i currently wear,
and when i tried it on originally, it being a front closing bra, i couldnt even get the first hook latched, and so i put it in the drawer and forgot about it,
but on sat, on a whim, i got it out and tried it on, and lo and behold, the first latched hooked and the second latch hooked and that was all, but, hey that is a success in my book!!!!
i figure another 10 maybe 15 lbs and i will be buying an even smaller size, woo hoo this is a big big step forward for me........
as my boobs have been a big (parden the pun) , hassel for me for quite some time and to even get into a size smaller bra, is such a huge accomplishment
now like i said, im not in it all the way yet, but soon SOON SOON SOON.....

i guess most of you have been dealing with your own fair share of weather woes, most of the country has been having excessive heat lately...what a crazy week its been here, the last 2 days it was extreme heat and we were under an advisory, and today was hot, not terribly hot, i went to physical therapy in my non air conditioned car and i didnt sweat too bad, i didnt smell too rank....but, not long after i got home, it started down pouring rain, we have neighbors who have trees down all around them, the road was blocked not too far from me by a tree, and now i just hear thunder, thunder all around me, but no rain, no wind, no lightening....
i have to go to doc tomorrow, watch it be 99 again, blah
so, i had a solo cup of pepsi today, first soda i have had in a week or longer, but, i just wanted something other than water, i am just so sick of plain water, and that pepsi tasted pretty darn good.....
but i want to keep that 2 lbs off that i have lost and i vow no more the rest of this week....
wonder if my doctors scale and my scale have consulted and will agree....

so i finally got in touch with my hairsylist today, and since i had forgotten that school goes back here on wednesday, next week, she is all booked up until tuesday, i had half a mind to call someone else, but i have been going to her for awhile and she does a good job, i am reluctant to change....
so, this got me to thinking about all the other things i am reluctant to change, perhaps myself is the major thing.
my residence as well, we have been wanting to move for awhile and let one place slip right out of our hands, but, we had excuses, we didnt like the neighbors or the location, now a new place is up for sale, land only, which means we would have to do alot of work, but, ahhhhhh, i cant decide
i am down a pound and my scale is not going to be touched for a week, if i have the willpower, and i go back to the doctor on friday, so i will see if her scale says "your scale is lying to you" or, if i believe my scale and hers is the liar....
i am one step away from putting a dew rag on like bret micheals and just saying the heck with it..........
