Bunco Night with the girls was a blast. I learned that I need to make sure I eat or I will snacks galore. I had a protein bar and Milk which obviously didn’t satisfied me at all. So I am learning a lot I won most Buncos – my goodie bag was Carmel Kiss Coffee bag, 3 dove chocolates, two kitchen towels -red & white-said love, kitchen shears tugged in a cute little reusable tote bag. Simple things all that I could use, haven’t opened up the coffee yet but hoping to do so next week!

This was a very quiet day for me I got up and did coffee with the girls and they were awesome. I really needed their encouragement considering that my water retention was awful I had already gained about 6# and it was driving me nuts. I know I am more than the number on the scale but know this isn’t normal and you can tell if you look at both my legs something is wrong. What really got to me is how my doctor when he called me back was very dismissive about it needless to say I fired his butt that day. I haven’t been happy the past 18 mos. With him yes had no problem starting getting names from my friends. I adjusted to just eating a lot more greens and leaner meats for the rest of the weekend and found ways to cook without any added sodium!! Crockpot tomorrow dinner – pot roast and added no sodium just used fresh herbs and tons of natural aromatic veggies like celery carrots bell peppers , onions, turnips, mushrooms potatoes sweet and reds I put it on at 9pm and oh getting up to the smells were awesome oh and used about a cup of red wine and Dijon garlic mustard. Very nice!

Well topped in with a total of 8# up in water weight my legs hurt to be touched and couldn’t even get my ring on. This is not good but just kept doing. I made tuna wraps with lettuce for lunch and all was good!

Rough day – boss getting ready to go on vacation so was extremely busy no time for anything in that 9.5 hour day. Went to therapy during lunch and that went really well. I finished the day with exercise and very light salad and soup for dinner while I watched biggest loser with hubby. I did make an appointment to see my new doctor on 3/7/2013 and try to figure out what the heck is wrong with my body, just choosing health now.

Well all my hard work an perseverance prevailed I lost most of the water weight this week all but 1.2 to get back to where I was at 2 weeks ago so hoping I can shake the rest off and it will show next week. I am really busting my tail working out!!! Heck I went out a lunch time and gave it my all it was actually fun, just hate the sweaty feel afterwards at work… but that is what deody and powder can do for you to keep you feeling fresh after a lunch time workout lol.

Found out my insurance is not going to pay for my 14 week workshop for therapy, will be making phone calls to see if there is a workaround or why not. If not I will use my Flex spending account card I will make the best of it this way. I have to remind myself that this is an investment towards me!! Also, figuring which friends are takers and removing them from my life. I don't think it is fair when things get one sided. Funny I am realizing how much more my self worth is to not deal with this.

So far my day is on track and exercise will happen as I have a date with my husband to work out tonight-keeping a healthy heart we called it. emoticon
Had an awesome workout in the pool river channel walk i jogged against the current feels like good crosstraining for the half in September. I'm so excited registration has now opened as well.

PS i spoke with my insurance looks like if it's coded and described right it will go through. Now waiting to speak with provider.

    Glad you had the courage to "fire" your doctor. Hope your new one will be good for you.

Insurance stuff can be so tricky -- amazing that everything depends on what code is put down.

Love seeing all the emoticon

    Love, love, love the last photo on the post! We are more than that number, but gosh darn, it sure does feel good to control that number doesn't it! emoticon

Glad you're getting the medical stuff figured out. My doc of 15 years moved to Seattle (she IS fabulous so if you're in Seattle and need someone I'd HIGHLY recommend her!) and I saw the new one this week. She was 'okay', so my shopping around will continue I think - good luck on your search for someone new.

Hang in there Em - not only are you more important than that number, you're also WORTH more than that number!
