FitBit & GI Frustrations..

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Two hours after I went to sleep, I had to run to the bathroom, NEVER had to do that before! It wasn't diarrhea though. I also went again when I finally got out of bed so it would appear things are still moving quickly through me so to speak. Hope I am getting all my nutrients from it at least.
Imagine my surprise when logging into Fitbit for the first time and finding NO CANADA in the list of countries!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Canada is bigger than most of the countries listed!! While I love you folks in the emoticon Canada is not a clone of you!
emoticon uses the metric system of measurements!!!!
Even though it did not show on the dashboard, it looks like it did record my sleep! I slept for 5 hours and 31 minutes with 15 wakeups!! An eye opener to be sure as I didn't think I woke up that much!!
Scrambling to get laundry done (the room was in use as usual so I had to use the big machine which is lousy as socks get thrown and trapped in the slot in the window :-() I also have a pile of smelly workout clothes to hand wash and dishes as well then trying to pack and not forget anything like I usually do! Need an assistant!!! A secretary to type my blogs and responses to others would be especially nice!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday all!

    No bueno about no Canada and no metric! Can you upgrade software or exchange or something?

You know you weren't sleeping well, but that is real confirmation of how badly. That sleep deprivation is not good for you, your immune system, endocrine system, brain, and all. It's because you are in so much pain, right? My only suggestion until you get your arm fixed better to address the cause of the pain is that the "Relaxation Response" from several minutes of meditation is the same brain wave pattern as deep sleep and can be very restorative. Like a nap without grogginess.

To meditate: You can look at one thing, think of one word, phrase, place, your breathing, the moment you are in, just not trains of thought about the past or future. And relax. Helps to lessen pain too.

Best wishes. You are a warrior woman.

    Bummer that the fitbit doesn't have Canada. That would be frustrating! Glad it registered your "sleeping," but that's a lot of times to get up. I hope your system "clears up."

I hope the rest of your week goes well.

FitBit Flex and Aria Scale arrived today!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Woohoo! My new tech toys have arrived! Had no problem setting them up at all! Then was stymied by the manual problem. I struggled for an hour on each hand trying to get the band on. Couldn't do it! emoticon
But other good news was my leisure card authorization arrived!! So I could go to my low impact & Sculpt and Zumba classes! So I went and asked the instructor of my first class if she could get it on, but no luck, so I held on to it for my class, and then when I went down to sign up for my Zumba class, the front desk lady got it on for me! But I noticed it was on backwards according to the instructions! emoticon
During my class, I felt it vibrate and wondered what went on. Had no idea.
When I set up my scale, it requested me to name it!! Tired and hungry, I just typed in the last class I attended, Zumba lol. It said I weighed 135 and some decimal and that my body fat % was 24 something (I refuse to pay attention to fractions) This will be far from accurate due to my illness yesterday as I must have lost 6 lbs of waste through my GI tract. Pretty sure it was mild food poisoning from the festival. Stomach kind of cranky today too, but more tolerable. I know you are supposed to be well hydrated before you take a body fat % and I confess I had very little water during my two fitness classes and never had any after either. So when I weighed in, I was likely very dehydrated. emoticon But I wanted to try sleep tonight instead of getting up to pee every hour :-P The only bad thing about late night classes :-(
So I will be off to Mom's tomorrow (internet abyss) Last four days to get ready for the garden bus tours coming to Mom's on Sunday, she will be frantic getting everything just so, and all the last minute weeding, deadheading and clean up of such a large yard will be incredible!
Have a great rest of the week and weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

  Have Fun with your New FitBit Flex and Aria Scale Toys. Hope the Garden Tour is very Beautiful to see and enjoy.
I fell Monday and fractured my tailbone. The doctor at the hospital in ER said I was very de hydrated due to low salt and magnesium within in the body. I told him I was drinking lots of water and coffee. The high intake of fluids was flushing all of the salt out of my system. Said to eat vegetables, Fruits and Foods that contain Magnesium and to drink Fluids that contain salt and other Electrolytes. Said to drink Sport Drinks. Told him I had Gatoraide at home and that would be good too. I been feeling weak for awhile. Didn't know why. Was walking to the kitchen and was trying to turn the light on. Had no control of my arm and could not make connections with switch. Everything get very fuzzy and started going black. Passed out and was landing on my bottom on the floor. Stay there for a little bit and then crawl to walker which was about 3-4 feet away. Laid on the walker for awhile before trying to get up. every time I get up my heart would race. Was very dazed. Took me about an hour to call my doctor office. They put the doctor on the phone and he stayed with me til the ParaMedics get up into my apartment with me. Things are still a bit fuzzy at times now. I'm in a lot of pain and not feeling good at all. They are seeing lot of people that this is happening to. The reason Im telling and sharing this with everyone is it can happened to anyone. And with all the heat and how hot it gets be careful. You don't want to go through what I did. So please take precautions and not let it happened to you or anyone else. Please Pass this on to everyone you know. Thank You. I hope this helps people like what Linda just went though too. Hope that You are doing better too. God Blessings Always. Nave a Great Day. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take Care.

Worst. Day. Ever.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

It started soon after my exercise was done this morning. Bathroom runs. Managed to shower and make it to the club. Another bathroom run. Phone call that my number one helper (the woman who helps out the most at the club) was not coming to bridge today :-( Got lucky there were two qualified people who could hand out the boards for me without messing it up. Then the director calls started. A steady stream. I am usually able to pick the best time to use the facilities, when the round is changing then there are usually no calls. But this woman actually went looking for me in the bathroom!! They had gotten the boards mixed up while playing them. Its not something I could really help with. I can't say what they played on each hand!!! So without my marvelous Mary, I had to set up extra tables when needed while selling entries and then put everything away when the game was over and tidy up the tables (put cups and pencils away, etc.), a tedious chore with one arm. So I was home much later then normal. Got home in time for another bathroom run. Took medicine, went to bed. The same woman who followed me into the washroom phoned me about those boards again (did I mention bridge players are fanatics??) Didn't really sleep that well and just gave it up.
Started catching up on Sparks, and decided to see if supper would agree with me. I had missed my pain meds and was feeling it. Supper did not feel good or bad, but astonishingly, had another run to the biffy :(( Store is closed so can't get any more anti diarrhea meds :-(( I live near a mall that closes early and there is nothing, not even a confectionery, that is within easy walking distance (the nearest is 40 minutes fast walk out, not possible when you could need a washroom at any minute). I am hydrating very well (never a problem with me) but still feel a little dizzy and light headed.
No weigh in today for me. Losing everything out of your GI tract means an automatic 6 lb unearned weight loss, so did not even bother stepping on the scale.
Disappointed I couldn't help Mom with the painting of her sidewalk although I am not sure what I could do other than printing as a 'lefty' I am artistic and could easily draw designs, but that is with my right. Having the commit to bridge means I can't get over there soon enough to try as the rains are supposed to start Wednesday, when I am free :-(
Still trying to catch up on blogs, I am sure there are still some I have missed, do let me know. I lost a day on chores so not sure I will get them done before getting to Mom's.
Hope you all have had a better day!

Attempted Break-in! I'm Onyx! Ordered Fitbit Flex!

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I am furious with my Mom :-( She was hiding an attempted break-in from me :-( A few days ago, when they left on one of their frequent shopping trips for the garden, someone tried to jimmy the back garage door, then noticed the back window was open and took the screen off. Darling dog Daisy must have discouraged them and they took off, throwing the screen in the neighbour's yard. Mom thinks they were watching from the bush on the hill and waiting for them to leave. They must have been just passing through otherwise they would have known there was a dog there as Mom keeps Daisy outside with her when she is working on the yard. They usually never leave that window open when they leave, but they were just going on a short trip. Lesson learned, I hope. It was the hottest day of the year at 84, and I guess they wanted to keep the air moving. But you can't let your guard down in the city for an instant.
My surgeon was pleased with how my arm looked and I prompted him on how long I have been waiting for the final reconstructive surgery (since April) and he thought that was too long according to the new policy of the Health Region not to have to wait longer than two or three months. He is a young specialist so might not have any pull with the booking office, so I will see if he can get any action on it.
I fast walked from the hospital to the festival and stayed for three hours enjoying the music. My friend's band couldn't make it, but she sung a few songs with the replacement band whom she had used to sing with. I began the long, hot walk home. It was our hottest day at 84, but fortunately had cooled quite a bit as soon as the sun started setting. After four miles of swatting mosquitoes away from my head, I noticed my Nike Tom Tom GPS watch froze at that distance. Then after a long while started again. When I finally got home and loaded it, I discovered it never registered the hospital walk and a large gap was missing from the long walk. It also didn't show a map like it normally does. I did notice it took a very long time for getting a reading from the satellite. I have a feeling the dense forest fire smoke has been preventing it from getting a lock. When the sun set, it was blood red. I noticed the back of my ankle was biting, and I thought I got a grass burr or something, but pulled up my sock and couldn't find anything. When I took my socks off, there was blood there but I couldn't make out what was bugging it. I am pleased my feet didn't bother me from all that pavement walking (I had also did 4 miles in the morning which the watch had no trouble tracking, but it was clearer then too).
I checked my snail mail and was astonished to find I moved up into the new, top tier of Air Miles reward miles, Onyx! I was given a new, spiffy black card with a silver logo! Apparently, you need to collect 6000 emoticon air miles for this status! They must have made a mistake, or Mom's been buying out Rona for all her garden supplies :-P Being off my RA medicines means I am not accumulating those huge air miles anymore :-(
After my troubles with the GPS watch, I decided to put those air miles to good use and ordered the Fitbit Flex and Fitbit WiFi Scale that was in the Air Miles catalogue. I thought it would be nice not having to always push a bunch of buttons and wait for it to activate. I am all for anything you don't have to work at :-P
The only thing hurting me was my back, really painful, so I am not going to do much today. I do have a lot of hand washing my sweat soaked work out gear (eww) so I better get at it. Don't want the apartment smelling any worse then it is already with my neighbour's smoke and the forest fire smoke as well :-(
I hope you all have a wonderful, cooler day today!
Thanks for stopping by!

HUGS!

    I'm glad nothing too bad happened at your mother's house and that they waited until she was gone. Is your background picture of your mother's yard? I hope the doctor you saw does have some pull. I walked over a mile today at work and that I was doing pretty good until I read about all your miles!!! You are an inspiration.

    Wowee! That's a lot of walking... good for you! I love your independent spirit, Linda!

Smart to make quick use of those Air Miles... just in case!

Sorry to hear about your Mom's house... summer is always bad for crimes of opportunity. I'm glad they were gone when it happened.

    Linda ,

Your blogs are always so motivating! Thank goodness Daisy was home and deterred the wannabe thieves!

Awesome AirMiles purchase! I've got a pile of them so I'm interested in how you find the scale.

P.S. What are the orange and pink flowers in your background?
