Saturday, I wanted to eat a house and feel like I did, and Sunday I ate fried chicken. And a yeast roll. And rice with gravy. Should I continue? Probably not, just suffice it to say I strayed. Backtracking and back tracking today but this is going to be a bad week. Wednesday and Thursday I will be at the hospital with Mom getting her pacemaker, finally-TG! - and Friday I will be on an audit. Anyway, I'm doing the best I can and I got in an afternoon of yardwork Saturday with lots of help from Bitsee and Peanut.

Tomorrow is weigh day and my feet swelled up like footballs yesterday and have not come down despite my Lasix dosage. I hate that, knowing I have to weigh tomorrow and it will no doubt be up which is such a huge bummer! I had a smalled serving of mixed nuts yesterday afternoon and some pistachios today which don't help the situation. Hopefully if I drink some extra water the salt will move on out or hey it may just be a poor function day or two. I think I have to see the nephrologist some time this month for my yearly tests.
It's raining a little this morning but nothing we can't use. I took Nyquil last night for my stopped up nose and slept like a log but with this weather, I want to crawl back under the covers and instead am stuck at work.
Happy humpday everyone!

TGEIO or thank goodness Easter is over! but I actually did pretty good. The ham Mom bought was icky with lots of fat. Yes Mom, I really am the best ham-picker in our house. There were enough nice slices for Easter dinner's company but the rest will need to be fried or something, the "or something" probably being frozen until past edible, then tossed. I tripped over the lemon pound cake and the jalapeno cornbread-three slices of one, four of the other but that is as bad as it got and that was over two days so I done good.
My tracking suffered more than anything else because I was out of town a couple of days, busy Easter, and Mom had to go to the hospital yesterday for an arteriogram which took most of the day. With great care, I likely won't lose anything this week but I shouldn't gain either.
Hope all of you had a great holiday weekend and attended at least one Easter service. Jesus is the reason for this season too!

Much warmer this am, only 36 degrees up in the country, 43 on my patio. Out here where the prison is there are no highways, loops, streets to store all the radiant heat so I guess that is why it is so much colder. Some days, I go out and get in the truck thinking I want need a coat and when I get 15 miles up the road I'm glad I have one in the back seat. I don't mind the cold but I'm tired of it being 77 one day and 34 the next night. As if I get a choice! LOL
Dessert is strawberry shortcake. I'm trying to be proactive here. There is no way I could resist pie but I'm not that crazy about shortcake. I'll have ham, green beans, a weensy little new potato, and some strawberries and try to stay out of my little grand-nephews jelly beans and chocolate eggs - and keep Bitsee and Peanut out of them. The little boys have never had an egg hunt at my house so they will have to be instructed on keeping the gates closed and not feeding the girls chocolate.
If everyone shows up, there will be 6, possibly as many as 10, besides Mom and I. Hopefully I get a head count tonight. This is the family of my brother who lost his wife in January to complications from diabetes and MRSA. As it is their first holiday without her, and especially as she always made much of the holidays for the little boys, Nathaniel  and Ethan [almost 3], I thought this might serve as a distraction for them.
It's been several years since Mom and I entertained them so I'm really nervous about it. My nephew's wife is a bit on the spoiled side, think Michael Kors and valet parking.
Hey, I've made it 10 days and am down 3 pounds!
