I am glad to have it as without it I had a headache. Not enough sleep did not help either. I need to take better care of myself! <em>102</em> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 00:57:18 EST Two days of fasting in row! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6472925 I have not done this in years but having messed up my Wednesday fast I needed two more! Fasting for more than two days will give me a headache! I hope everyone has a great weekend this week! Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:19:51 EST Keeping the kitchen clean! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6471083 I cleaned the kitchen the other day and have been keeping it clean since! My sister loves to cook and bake, but she is blind in one eye so is very messy in her work! Cleaning it as it gets dirty works well. I need to remember this as it was very bad when I cleaned it first. Sun, 11 Mar 2018 00:52:29 EST My first side affect from a RX. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6470401 My new med is having an adverse affect on my alimentary system. As this is the very first problem I have had I am not very troubled by it. I hope to avoid any more problems by taking more magnesium. Thu, 8 Mar 2018 21:12:24 EST Sinus headache today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6466681 I wanted to get to Mass but my body had other ideas! I wish I could find a cure for my sinus problems. God bless everyone! Sun, 25 Feb 2018 22:39:56 EST Alpha at church tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6464525 Interesting program for all Christians not just Catholics! It was made in England and it was fun to see some of London. We had dinner before the program and I had too much salad, my tummy is not happy with me! It might be salad combined with pizza, but I have done that be for with no trouble! Tums before bed tonight! Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:55:56 EST New med is coming soon! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6463883 My doctor said that the new one is supposed to add energy to my life! I do hope it works as he thinks it will. I will get it tomorrow if I can get to sleep before dawn! I slept most of today having gone to bed at dawn! Sat, 17 Feb 2018 00:27:38 EST I need to make a list for shopping! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6462893 I went to stores two times and forgot most of what I needed. I keep getting hick ups in the evenings, I hate having hick ups. I hope my lent will help with my weight. It has in the past, but I am older now and not as active as I used to be. Wed, 14 Feb 2018 00:14:53 EST I need to do things! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6461168 I get on spark and stay for hours instead of doing the things I need to do! If I did not care about the leader boards it would be easier! I do care and like to be on the first page! Some people can do this faster than I can, but we are each our own person! Thu, 8 Feb 2018 22:49:05 EST I think it was hick-ups yesterdays! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6457810 My muscles felt very sore last night and today. It seemed to be inside me but maybe not! Hick-ups came on last night and made me hurt in the same place, so that is why I think they where the cause of my pian! Wed, 31 Jan 2018 00:31:27 EST My tummy is not happy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6457469 I have been fasting today and it feels like acid is in my lower esophagus! Very nasty and even Pepto Bismol works for only a few minutes. I have never had this kind of feeling before and I hope I never have it again!! Tue, 30 Jan 2018 00:36:11 EST Mailed boxes today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6452830 I forgot to send some Christmas goodies with my sister, so I packed them up and sent one to the sister that I forgot to give them to. The other box went to my Mother and the sister she is staying with. I also got more ibuprofen at the dollar store. My dentist wants me to take it for my TMJ. God bless and keep everyone! Wed, 17 Jan 2018 22:31:28 EST Yesterday was better than today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6452439 I went to the drug store and the grocery store with the wind making me numb in my face. To day was warmer but I did not go outside. Some days are better than others. Getting out can be more than I can do. Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:43:52 EST Better Saturday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6451188 After yesterday today was much better. I got to Mass early and we had good musicians! There was a baby baptized as part of Mass. I want to Walgreens after Mass and got my replacement mouth guard. Sat, 13 Jan 2018 22:19:44 EST 1/12/18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6450863 Friday has been pretty wasted for me. I did fast with less than 500 calories for dinner. Fri, 12 Jan 2018 23:58:02 EST 1/11/18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6450437 Snowny day today and I stayed in doors today. I hope tomorrow is not as cold as predicted! <BR> <em>576</em> <em>444</em> <em>310</em> Thu, 11 Jan 2018 22:22:59 EST Happy Tuesday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6449617 This has been a good day for me. Not great but good! I need to eat some dinner soon! Have a good night! <BR> <em>102</em> Tue, 9 Jan 2018 21:54:20 EST Twelve Days of Christmas! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6447824 Tomorrow is Epifany and the Three Kings will be coming tonight! When I was a kid all my friends where envious of a second Christmas! Little Christmas is one of the names we gave this day! God bless! Fri, 5 Jan 2018 20:57:36 EST Feeling in the dumps today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6446403 I did get some calls made today so two things are off my to do list. I am so out of it that I can't even think! Tue, 2 Jan 2018 22:09:17 EST My cold is gone but my jaw is still needing healing! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6445189 My mouth guard is helping and should do the job with enough time. Christmas is still happening at my house as we keep all twelve days of Christmas! I am not doing much about my diet and watching calories for Christmas. I do try to track all that I eat but sometimes I forget a food or two! Sun, 31 Dec 2017 19:15:40 EST TMJ has been troubling me for sometime! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6444211 I saw my dentist and he sold me a mouth guard to ware at night and it is working well! My jaw is still a little sore but much better than it was. This is a common problem I understand but is no fun for anyone who has it! <BR> I use Advil and heat to help the inflammation! <BR> <em>527</em> <em>46</em> Thu, 28 Dec 2017 23:53:43 EST Today was not good! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6442794 My mind is very scattered so anything I do gets messed up! Even my food is getting messed up today! Sat, 23 Dec 2017 21:46:38 EST A cold plus depression make for a bad week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6442563 My energy is so low that getting anything done is almost impossible. I hope to get better soon but it will take as long as it takes. Christmas makes this harder as I want to do some cooking of cookies and candy! Sat, 23 Dec 2017 00:40:53 EST Saint Nicholas Day tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6437813 I should have made cookies today for the celebration we like to have on St Nicholas Day! If I go to bed soon I can make them in the morning tomorrow. God bless everyone! Wed, 6 Dec 2017 00:19:54 EST Headache coming on. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6436198 I keep forgetting to buy the antihistamine I need for my headaches. I might have some in my purse, but probably not. At least they don't last long. Thu, 30 Nov 2017 18:05:41 EST Lack of sleep makes me wosy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6434923 I did not go to sleep last night and then after Mass I decided to eat a little something! Then Spark got me! I find it hard to go away before I have gotten all the points I can get. I think I will go to bed early this evening! God bless and keep everyone! Sun, 26 Nov 2017 17:29:51 EST Some days are very hard! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6434707 I did want do some things today but I did nothing. I wish I had more energy and I know that exercise will help with that, it is getting going with the exercise that defeats me! I will be seeing my medical Doctor and my mental health Doctor this coming week, Monday and Tuesday! Sat, 25 Nov 2017 22:15:49 EST Found a way to take pills with no trouble! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6432689 I found if I take one at a time they do not get stuck! It was taking two at once that caused the problem. It takes a little more time but not as much as if they got stuck. Anyway I just thought that I would put this up as you where so kind in offering help. I am very happy to have found a way to do this without trouble! <BR> <em>91</em> Sat, 18 Nov 2017 23:25:27 EST Funny how things are not as you think! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6432409 I got some Garlic and Herb cheese wedges at HyVee thinking they where the same as Laughing Cow cheese wedges, but HyVee's are lower in calories than Laughing Cow's. I need to look more carefully at the packages when I am shopping. At least it is lower rather than higher, that would have been much more of a surprise. Fri, 17 Nov 2017 23:36:58 EST Getting a capsule stuck in my throat! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6431761 This has been happening often lately. It makes me have to throw up sometimes. I just hate this and need to find a cure for it. I will be seeing my Doctor after Thanksgiving and I hope she will help. God bless and keep you! Wed, 15 Nov 2017 21:25:13 EST Life is hard some days! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6431141 I just wish I had more energy! I need to find an herb that helps with this. God bless and keep everyone! <BR> <em>459</em> <em>529</em> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 22:04:39 EST A bad fasting day for me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6428916 I find it hard to not eat when my sister bakes Apple turnovers and Praline Charlottes! I find it hard not to eat the Praline Charlottes even when they are a day or three old. I did stay under 1000 calories, but I like to stay below 500. I am finding it hard to do what I need to do, I do what I do not want to do. As my Mother said Saint Peter even had this trouble! Mon, 6 Nov 2017 22:38:06 EST Having a hard time getting used to cold weather! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6426633 I find that dressing warmly enough can be very hard! Some days start cold and get warm later, that is the worst! I hope everyone else is doing better than I am! Depreson is still part of my life but I hope my meds will help soon! Mon, 30 Oct 2017 22:22:42 EST Fall is here! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6419807 Most of the trees are still green but it is cool and getting colder! We will have to turn on the heat soon. I am glad I have good thermal under ware and lots of turtleneck tops! Praise the Lord! God bless everyone! Mon, 9 Oct 2017 17:33:58 EST Depression still here! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6418818 My counselor see me as much, better but I feel less than well. I am on the maximum dose of both my meds so when I see my Doctor next week he might try something thing else! I would like to feel well again! <em>574</em> <em>587</em> <em>334</em> Fri, 6 Oct 2017 19:19:02 EST Rainy Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6417462 Cloudy day make it extra hard for me to get up out of bed! And with the rain coming down at any moment it is very hard to want to go outside! I hope other people have had a nice Monday. <BR> <em>27</em> <em>257</em> <em>102</em> Mon, 2 Oct 2017 22:05:05 EST Took a note to my county worker today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6416471 She needed a note for my Mother about the money she is sending me. Without this conformation on the money I get no food stamps! This past month has been very hard money wise. Hopefully the food stamps will be back soon, I do like having food stamps! Fri, 29 Sep 2017 23:59:44 EST Failed Friday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6414023 I was so hot today and slept so late that I have done nothing much at all! The Library in this town closes at five most days, so it can be very hard for me to get to. Maybe tomorrow will be better, not as hot as today anyway. My sister is baking fudge cupcakes and they smell delicious! One tomorrow for breakfast maybe, with cereal for fiber. Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:38:08 EST Thursday's thinking! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6413712 I got a nice walk done today, in the cooler late afternoon. I would like to walk to the library tomorrow, if I get up early enough! My meds seem to be helping me feel a little better. Each day is different and special. God bless and care for everyone! Thu, 21 Sep 2017 23:25:23 EST Tuesday's thoughts! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6412940 I spend more time reading books than any other activities. Getting any other thing done is very hard for me. Even a walk that I want to take is not getting me moving! I just hope I find the motivation to do more later this week! Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:46:27 EST My counselor was happy with my progress! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6412658 She said I was laughing more and looking happier than before. I hope to get my bedroom sorted out this week. If the meds are really working for me I should be able to do some! I also want to go to the library this week, maybe tomorrow as the weather should be nice! Mon, 18 Sep 2017 23:38:54 EST Ruben Sandwich for dinner! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6411919 My sister and I are going to share it, as we both think it too big for either of us. Coleslaw with homemade dressing is good even if a bit old. I need to change my food tracker as I had not considered a Ruben for dinner tonight. Sat, 16 Sep 2017 21:06:01 EST Red Cross was good! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6410982 I got there just a few minutes late but it was not crowed and everything went smoothly. I had raisins afterward and two cookies that I should have left alone! My frozen spot has gotten scratched and was hurting a lot today. It is better now as I put some pain killer cream on it! Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:19:25 EST It looked like a wart but was not one! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6410631 My Doctor froze it off for me anyway. I get odd things on my skin. Moles have been the nastiest ones to remove. Giving blood tomorrow at the Red Cross and that is the third appointment this week! Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:10:20 EST Up to 450 mg. of Wellbutren! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6409832 I have to take two pills for this as they do not make a 450 mg of Wellbutren, only a 150 and a 300 mg sizes. I have been at the highest dose of the other med for some time. Lucky for me I have no side affects from these meds. Sun, 10 Sep 2017 21:49:43 EST Lector at Mass this evening! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6409501 I was one of two lectores at the 5:15 Mass and he was very sweet to take care of the things I forgot. My mind is not working very well these days and I am not sure of why that is. My doctor uped the Wellbutren that I was already taking. I just hope and pray that it will work. I see him again in about one month! Sat, 9 Sep 2017 23:14:46 EST I have three appointments next week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6409163 I just hope I can get to all of them, unlike this week when I got to two but canceled the third. Hope everyone in the Hurricanes way can evecuate well. Fri, 8 Sep 2017 21:52:44 EST I am feeling old today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6405488 At age 60 I should just be middle aged. Depression seems to make every day longer and me feel older. I would so like my meds to work on me, but they haven't yet! <BR> Tue, 29 Aug 2017 20:42:10 EST Over ate today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6404773 Sunday's are the one day a week I do not try to keep my calories in check. Today I just went farther than usual. Strawberry Shortcake with whipped cream for dessert helped to make it higher than most, but peanut butter oatmeal cookies helped too. Bed soon for me! God bless. Mon, 28 Aug 2017 00:08:49 EST I need to get more sleep! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6404166 I just don't go to bed at a reasonable time. I have been awake since yesterday morning and I need some breakfast before I try sleeping! I can be very stupid about my health as sleep is a really big part of health. Sat, 26 Aug 2017 11:05:03 EST
