Busy Day


Saturday, July 10, 2010

Thankfully the gout is so much better today. Hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow. Gout comes on suddenly and can lasts for days or longer. I have found that heat helps. I take 2 meds for it but still get it from time to time. I seem to always get it in unusual places. I am just glad the pain has eased up.
Brianna is suppose to come spend some time with me and she told her Mom that if Grandma was feeling bad she wanted to wait.She said I get grumpy.Who. Me emoticon
Dealing with excess fluid but that happens at least once or twice a week.
I go next thursday night for a sleep study to see if I need more than just O2. Oops.I think I already told you that. Senior moment
Today was errand day but kept it to a minimun.Had our weekly lunch.We have been getting a 1 1/2 slices of pizza and a cup of soup.Only got 1 slice and soup. Then we picked up some DVD's for the weekend.
Then the grocery store. I found some new melons to try. One tastes like a cantaloupe but other was tasteless..I have pictures to share but have to wait til after Monday. I got big bag of green beans and some chinese green beans. I will probably steam them tomorrow.I have found I like fresh cooked green beans at any time.Then I spent 15 minutes looking for a new salad dressing to try. I made another batch of my own but I wanted to see what I could find.I found a low cal ceasar and a low fat greek. looks like the greek is one I will use. I threw mine away as it just wasn't good. I taste tested each one with some cauliflower when I got home.
Buying the groceries is the easiest part.It takes me a long time to get stuff ready for fridge. I got the cauliflower,broccoli,celery.me
lon and grapes all cleaned and bagged for easy use.Takes time now but so much easier the rest of the week. I still have the meat to redo.I will make some chip snack bags later. The chips get locked up and I have to have Bill get them.So no pigging out on them after he goes to bed.
My weight is up but it is mostly fluid.I forgot to weigh this morning before I got dressed so I will use my weight tomorrow.Maybe the fluid will be down.Took extra meds today.
Bil has found someone to mow the yard who will bag grass.It looks great. The non bagged mowed grass seemed to be messing up the new grass. So Bill is happy.
Well I still have posts from yesterday to get to.I am way behind. But that's nothing new.
I did good with calories yesterday and am in good shape as of right now.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

    Very pretty flowers! I have so many garden projects on my husbands to do list. I wish I could do more to help him but at least I'm starting to be able too now. He is suppose to put in a butterfly garden on left side between the two fruit trees in our back yard this Summer but he has had way to much to do . We do have some very nice flowers in our front yard that garden has taken shape nicely. My eating has been bit out of control today. Stress I have to relax.

    Good to hear you are trying new foods out! emoticon . I like that you bag everything into dervings. I will try that but not till next week as we have company for a week. My 5 cousins are here.....Long week ahead when 3 are toddlers.

    boy can I relate to your gout......I only get it in my right foot and only since I started taking the lasix.......not sure if it is really related or not but my legs were swelling bad so the heart doctor told me that I needed it.....who am I to second guess him...my legs still swell though.....but are much better...I probably don't elevate my legs as much as I should...

you are in my thoughts and prayers...stay strong and stay focused....we can make our way through all our obstacles and lose weight anyways..We can do it!!
*hugs*

    Good to hear your gout is better. Now Brianna can visit. I get grumpy too.

We have been running errands all weekend. Right after work last night we went grocery shopping then baby shopping. I got a break until this afternoon when we hit the stores again. We just got home about 45 minutes ago. It's been a hectic weekend.

I wish my grocery store sold better produce. I checked another local store and wasn't happy with their produce either. I'll have to check out other stores but they're out of the way. It'll be worth it though if I can find some good stuff.

I can get stuck in the salad dressing aisle too. There's so many to choose from it's insane. One of my new favorite's is Kenís raspberry vinaigrette. I also like the spritzing sprays.

Cleaning and bagging up produce is the best way to go but it is time consuming. I find if I don't do that, I don't eat it as often. It's so much easier to grab a bag and be done, no cleaning up. It's a big help when in a hurry. I have to cut up some celery. I've been craving it.

What movies did you get?

    Adrienne didn't want any pictures, so it wasn't a big loss.

I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling with health problems, but glad your gout is better. There's nothing like having a serious pain to ruin your disposition. I sometimes recall walking along with absolutely nothing hurting, and feeling good all over. Dr. Karp once told me that "nothing will make you 30 years old again," but I think he is a little grouchy. He told me that he's in his 60's.

    We are busy this weekend getting ready to head to the beach house from home here. I am packing and cleaning at the same time, so much fun to keep two houses clean and stocked with food for us and the animals, sometimes I can't remember which house has what until I get there.
Have a wonderful Sunday and rest so you won't be grumpy :)

emoticon Sandy
