Busy Halloween


Thursday, October 31, 2013

What a day, I was out of eye doc and had had my visual field test done too, and was at Walmart by 10:15, grabbed a carload of wood pellets,.. now have 39 bags on hand, so over a month's worth.. have gone several times to find them out of stock, better to find that before winter comes...and we run out...

Doc said my eye pressure is normal now and she's happy about me staying off the drops and come back in 6 mths for a checkup and if I am still fine, then I will only need a once a year diabetic check. She confirmed it's not often she gets to give good news like that...... so if I could find a way to tweak my diet so that I could drop a couple more pills and reduce my carbs, while maintaining my weight, things could be just about perfect... even no longer diabetic.... after 16 years....

I heard a radio program yesterday that said that women who are Sz. 12 are the happiest... even Sz.1-2 aren't happy with their weight, can you imagine? I put on my Sz. 14 cords from last year today and they are perfect and I did think about how nice that is to take out the change of season clothes and have them fit, rather than the old, oh no, no clothes for the season again... and my Sz. 13 jeans fit, and the Sz. 13 dress pants I bought the other day for 25cents, also surprised me and fit perfectly! What a nice feeling!

I have also stopped at sales racks lately, only to find that everything is TOO BIG!!! So, once I get over this flu thingy and can think straight, maybe I do have to re-evaluate... if only the weight would stay the same, that is the real problem, if I am not working at it all the time, another 5 or 10 or 15 will creep back on.... I have made most of the changes they recommend, you know, getting away from all white stuff and using olive oil and I eat way less meat that I used to..... I was going to say, does this ever get second nature, but I guess if so, it would have happened by now, eh? Have to be ever diligent....

Went to a lunch Shrimpfest with a real chef cooking and teaching and giving us the recipes..Menu... a shrimp cocktail, All Things GReen Shrimp Pie and Traditional British Bread Pudding... (which he didn't soak, and I didn't like much). He put leeks in the pie and instead of a pie, he actually just put a prepkg. frozen pastry over the top of it, not bad, but nothing really special. It was free, don't think I would have been so pleased if I had paid the usual $10 for it. Did make some more connections - they do a 6 or 8 week healthy eating class (with cooking ideas) and a diabetic course too. Although the full 20 places had been pre-registered for, only 7 of us showed up. Peopel don't know what they are missing!

So, busy day...... was going to say I didn't get much done, but in writing it out, I really did get a lot done.... then made a nice Chicken Greek Salad for supper and cooked up a squash soup, washed dishes and handed out the treats, only about 30 kids, despite neighbor saying that she gets 300. Because we are on the corner, people don't bother coming around the corner....

Hope everyone had a happy, healthy Halloween.... we bought nachos, not a big deal for me to have a feeding frenzy on....

    Whoo! You did have a busy day, but what GREAT news from eye doc!!! That is so awesome and I just know you are going to keep improving in all areas that you wish to improve in. You got the know/how (well, hey, you're taking classes - and you're also here at sp!) and you got the determination!

Loved the seasonal wardrobe still fitting. That is a good thing!
Keep shopping .........till we see ya dropping. emoticon
