I'm Saying No to Tight Undergarments

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

My toes are completely healed up now. I gave blood yesterday. My hemoglobin was 13.0. I was a little worried that it wasn't going to be high enough. My blood pressure was high enough, as well, 94/62. I always feel extra grateful for my health after I give blood.

I have been slacking on the flossing. I have to work on this again. I have a dentist cleaning coming up in December.

At work I am doing much better at saying no to the candy, the Greek pastries, the bagels, cream cheese, Danish pastries, donuts, etc. I've been looking at it and thinking. Do I want to have to wear that? Do I want to carry that extra weight on my feet and knees? Do I want to have to squish that extra weight into tight undergarments? NO WAY! Some days I just don't care about how I look in clothes, but I always hate the feeling of tight undergarments.

I took my husband to the doctor. His one foot is infected again. But, it has been years since he had problems with it. He got on the scale at the doctor. He lost 34 pounds in six months! Yay! He got his foot cultured and an antibiotic shot. Plus, got his yearly blood work done. He is smoking less, drinking less alcohol, and eating less food. He is a little grouchy.

I got bad news this week that a friend of mine has lung cancer. It has metastasized to the brain. The doctor says that she has 3-6 months left. She is a very bubbly, funny person. Just a joy to be around. Very sad.

    It's easy to say no to those so-called "treats" when you re-frame what they really *are* to you. To me bagels, donuts and other pastries = another fight with candida from the sugar and the white flour, and if you've read Wheat Belly, you wouldn't want to eat the wheat either!

    Speaking of candida, have you ever looked into it re: your husband? Infections are a sign that one's immune system may be compromised and of course the use of antibiotics increase the risk that one will have a yeast overgrowth.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your friend. I hope that you can be a really special friend to her in the time she has left, maybe it will extend her time as well...

    Oh, so very sad about your friend! We can all feel so helpless when we hear about these situations.

    I'm glad that you got a good report with your health issues and that you're husband is basically doing better. I've been on a high protein diet lately to help me lose weight, and I find that I'm a little grouchier, too, when I don't get to eat what I want.

    I hear you about those pastries! My sister and I traveled together this past week-end, and we stopped in a little town that is famous for its Czech kolaches. I cratered and ate an apricot/cream cheese kolache on Friday. But when we stopped back by there on Monday so that my sister could take some home to her husband, I walked out of the bakery without anything. Yay me! So I know how hard it is to pass up goodies like that.

    One the page that we can list Other Goals, I listed Floss Teeth as one of my goals. Now I've got a good streak going, as this helps to remind me.

    Cute photos of your critter and your tree!

    Best wishes for continued success!
