I have to use Medicare approved cpap supply company. Co rep phoned me twice and must have received correct rx. Their rep instructed me to wait until June 6th to order when all my supplies are due. I have having trouble with headgear. Velcro won't stay in place and comes off during night, but can wait until June.

I picked up compounding thyroid medication yesterday. Took it today and what a difference. No nasal allergy, swollen ankles, leg pain, and plenty of energy. I am also down 3 lbs. Probably water weight, but who cares. I haven't lost an oz on brand rx.

I spoke to Postmaster yesterday about mail problem. He has lots of excuses why my mail isn't being delivered. None were good. He said my box was probably full. Told him I empty box daily. Then, he said he needs to know the day my mail is sent back. Told him I don't know until someone or company informs me mail was returned. He said he would look into it. No mail for 4 days. So, I assume it was delivered elsewhere or returned to sender. How come PO never returns bills and junk mail?

Overcast and cool here. Good day to make zucchini bread. Chores today. Movie with friends tomorrow. Swim on Monday.

How will you spent weekend?

Myself I'm waiting on Diabetic supplies. If not here by the 5th of June, I;ll not be with them the rest of the year.. However, do believe it's time some agency regulates the Pharmaceutical Companies. and the FDA. It's time to start shopping on line and go Insurance Companies.
Besides there are sites that are way less expensive than Pharmacies be they local or Mail.

How's your weather for this Holiday Weekend?

You made cauliflower Alfredo sauce? Sam's club had Paleo slow cooker book with chicken frittata and cake recipes. I didn't buy book since my slow cooker is 7-8 quarts. Makes too much for one person. New small cookers had bad reviews. Customers said they boiled food on low setting. I am not going to stay home from work to watch slow cooker.

I am having with compounding pharmacy filling my rx and almost out of meds. Cpap supply company disliked doc's rx and wouldn't send supplies. My sister phoned to let me know my mail is being returned marked 'not forwardable'. Where the heck is my mail being delivered? I have lived in same place for 15 years. No wonder I am grouchy.

It not only may have looked delicious, it is delicious. So is their Chicken Frittata. Plus a slow cooker coffeecake.

Here, Saturday hit 90, Sunday was 80 and today is in the middle 70s. We had rain since Friday and and through until next Monday.

Are you have problems with medical supplies as well?

Great to no rain, paleo and weight lifting. Spark member posted picture of cauliflower Alfredo sauce that looked delicious.

It was 90 on Saturday. 70s on Sunday. Cold and windy tonight.

Still no meds and cpap supplies.

So far so good! No emoticon emoticon but, not holding my breath. Really getting into this Paleo Lifestyle. Hoping by next month I show enough Improvement in Cardio and Diabetes that some medication will have dosages lowered. I'm not saying I could go for a marathon but I am starting to lift slight more than 25#.

Anything interesting happen with anyone else.

Been in the 80s back this way, naturally it brought back the emoticon emoticon .

Unless we have a snow day School emoticon will be out on the 1st day of June. Talent shows, field trip, Equestrian Group in the parade this weekend and a trip to Kings Island all before that last day. Plus the invitations for High School Graduation are beginning to arrive. I'm between gift or gift card.

Enjoy the warmth and Sun if you are fortunate enough! emoticon

My Az teacher daughter said bad stomach flu is going thru schools there. She subbed for a class that usually has 30 students. Only 15 students were present that day. Better weather doesn't lead to less illness since it is in the 80 in Az. School ends on May 20 th in Az. My sil still hasn't found a job. Daughter's teaching contract ends May 30th. Family is getting in all their doctor visits before ins ends this month.

I hope your weather improves so you can enjoy equestrian and meals in the field.

Granddaughter mentioned that a few classmates were out with colds. Fortunately, she had a long weekend, so perhaps that along with warmer weather and way less rain Mother Nature had a change to clear health problems up or slow progress down. The past 2 weeks the schools have been State testing for the Year. School here will be out around the 2nd of June.

Once school is out the fun begins here. It's Equestrian Time for the 4-H Clubs this Summer.
So I'll see how my stamma is once again along with nutritional meals out in the fields.

Have a Safe and Healthy week! emoticon

OMGoodness! A lot of work to keep crops from spoiling.

It was very cold and windy in Ca yesterday. Weatherman predicted rain today. It was sunny when I woke with clouds far away. Cloudy when I reached gym. Sunny while I swam. Pouring hard when I was leaving. Used a plastic trash bag for raincoat to reach car. Rained hard on drive home. Streets flooded. Sunny now with clouds in the distance. Weatherman predicts rain thru Wed. Then, hot from Thurs thru weekend.

We needed the rain since there is illness going around from the hot weather and polluted air that landed people in hospital.

My coworker with cancer quit working. I took over her job. Not liking working full time but my daughter and sil lost their job and need financial help. Limiting computer due to new work hours.

I have had spine and hip pain, which I assumed was due to sitting from working more. Came down with headache, and fever last night. Immunologist on news last week said virus going around that is leads to bronchitis and pneumonia. Three friends ended up in hospital Easter week. My 30 yr old coworker has been coughing since end of March and has pneumonia. It is always something.

Sun has gone. Rain and colder temps next week.

Cinnamon pancakes are right up my alley. I looked up Paleo recipes on Spark. Most of the recipes contained eggs. I had turkey taco for dinner on low carb tortilla last night. I makes sandwich wraps with these tortilla too. I love them and buy from Sam's Club.

I could sleep last night after hearing there could be a nuclear war if Trump interferes with testing. I fell asleep praying this doesn't become reality.

Happy Easter. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

From what I am reading with those apps. The connection is with Spark. Recipes say Spark and the logo is also present. Last night we had 100 Cal. Cinnamon Pancakes with Bacon. which was one of the recipes. Recipes are submitted by Spark Members as well as a few of the Coaches.

I'm sure you've heard of Diabetic Awareness. Well since sugars are more consistent within normal range, I'm learning new numbers to cope with.

Have a Blessed Easter! emoticon

I assume the two phone apps aren't Spark. I am thinking of trying Paleo again if it gets rid of cravings. I would have killed for a cig last week.

The thyroid book I am reading recommends Paleo. Author listed a breakfast that consists of squash and meat or chicken pieces cooked in crockpot. I thought it was worth trying since I have squash in house. Now I am not sure.

I think I have an egg allergy. Each time I eat them, my nose and throat starts in. I had to eat yogurt and use allergy medication to get it to stop today. So, I am trying to find something else to eat for breakfast.

My taxes were done end of March. I have slip, but haven't scheduled mammo. It is time for me to get colonoscopy, which I am dreading. Too many procedures and so little time. My GP's office phones to schedule annual in the fall.

Yes those pancakes are with banana and eggs. Spark has some great recipes for Low Carb as well as 2 cell phone apps. Those apps I used daily. Plus the site of a doctor who specialize in Paleo. I get monthly meal plans and recipes from that group. I also use a cell phone app for tracking my blood sugars and carbs. Those logs I use with each visit for blood sugars. That way I'm not carrying papers to and from the office. I did find a recipe for a biscuit cheese that can be used similar to an English Muffin. Problem there, can't find that recipe on my phone.
I have also noticed that cig cravings are no more.

Shopping was a blast with D and GD. Found another pair of my favorite walking shoes. I'll keep the old pair and assign them to gardening. Clothing, I really did not find what I wanted. However. after Labs this coming Saturday morning. It's shopping once again.

A great plan. I am happy this eating plan works. My A1C and fasting glucose was high when I shipped meals due to thyroid medication causing lack of appetite. These are normal since I began eating regularly.

Are Paleo pancakes a mix of banana and eggs? My friends tried that recipe, but I haven't.

The book I am reading recommends putting squash and protein, liquid and spices in a crockpot before bed and eating this for breakfast. I am going to try when I get my act together since I am tired of eating eggs.

How did summer clothes shopping and planting seeds go?

I went to Khol's to purchase shirt with $5 off coupon. The shirt I bought was on sale, but rang up at regular price. I was too tired to check receipt before leaving store and had to go back for credit today. I took my 30% off coupon with me and bought two more shirts. Three shirts for $18. My shirts are so old they have holes in them.

Right now I try to keep my entire day at 80/20 percent. I stick as close as possible between 60/100 carbs. 4-5 small meals per day has helped with my pre and post meal sugars. Which eating more frequently has helped with consistency. An estimated A1C at bedtime last night went from 6.5 to 6.4. ( as of the 1st of Feb. it was 7.9. Prior to my caring for DH 24/7
( 3 years ago ) my A1C was nicely staying in the lower 5 percent. That shows what stress can do for great pre caring diabetus planning.

Made some Paleo pancakes last night for Dinner along with fruit and even now I'm still not hungry. However, Breakfast is shortly.

Plans for today; shopping for Summer clothes and starting seeds for May planting!

Have a Blessed Sunday! emoticon

We age when we stop learning. Caramel apple chips are right up my alley. I wanted a dehydrator but after reading how long it took to dehydrate stuff, I chickened out.

Restaurants here put flowers in dishes. I have allergies and need to be careful what type of flowered tea I drink since some flare my allergies. I hope the violet tea tastes good.

What is your diabetic meal plan? The last time I helped friends with diabetic meals, the plan included a fair amount of carbs. I learned from a young diabetic that the juice, etc hospitals and nursing homes served them was a no, no.

I am glad Paleo has lead to good fasting glucose and hope you can discontinue some, if not all your meds. I am happy to read your energy and mood improved on this plan and you snack less.

I follow Suzie Cohan. She is pharmacist turned patient advocate. She wrote a book about reversing diabetes, which her mom and I followed. Being a pharmacist, she knows about medication. She wrote that diabetes medication stops the organ from processing sugar and the sugar ends up in the blood stream, which resulted in my reading being higher on medication. Anyway, I followed her plan and got off the medication.

I tried Paleo and couldn't function. Someone suggested reading Paleo My Way, which stated that athletes, etc., like me, need some carbs to function. I have thyroid disease and those books recommend some carbs too. I switched the carbs I eat. I eat sweet potato instead of white or red. Sprouted bread instead of wheat or whole grain. I have low carb tortilla wrap sandwich with fruit on exercise days. Dreamfield pasta instead of white, whole wheat or whole grain. These products are processed slowly by the body and do not spike glucose. I increased protein, added good fat and have a pc of fruit with each meal. I always ate a lot of veggies. That hasn't changed. I feel and sleep a lot better since adding some carbs. The only thing that backfired was switching from Splenda to Stevia. My fasting glucose rose on stevia. My doctor said there were plenty of studies about how Splenda affects glucose and none on stevia.

I gave up making recipes when I began living alone. I got tired of eating the same thing and lack room to freeze them. Eating protein with veggies and fruit works for me.

Hunger was never a problem for me. Undereating is. I use to skip lunch since I was stuffed from breakfast, which lead to health problems. Took a trainer and nutritionist a month to get me to eat three meals daily.

It is sunny and windy here. I have a list of things to do and better get move on.

Enjoy violet tea and weekend.

D and SIL are basically Survivalists. They say you are never to old to learn. Here on the Farm with them, I'm doing just that. Learning something new each day. So far I've mastered making Caramel Apple Chips with the dehydrator. These morning D and I were reading up on wild violets. Did not know they were edible as are dandelions. The wild violets are medicinal as well as being pretty. So this afternoon, will be working on making some Violet Tea.

For over 2 months now I have been gradually adding the Paleo Diet into my Diabetic Meal Plan. Right now I'm up to 2 meals a day and gradually adding in the evening meal. So lately I have noticed and increase in energy level, less depressive moods and less snacking. This morning my fasting blood sugar for the 4th day in a row has remained under 110. Yesterday's blood sugars thru the day were under 110 as well. My next follow-up on Diabetes is in June. Hoping by then, I will have a decrease once again in oral and Insulin dosages.

Spark is loaded with Paleo recipes. Hunger is not a problem.

Have a great weekend.!

No pharmaceutical discounts work for Medicare patients. My doctor's office instructed me to print out card to get cream doctor prescribed for $20. When I went to sign up on site, it said Medicare patients don't qualify. Cream cost $330. I refused to buy it. I wish the gov't would pass bill that allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices like VA.

I was diabetic a while back. The medication caused my kidneys to shut down. I went on high protein diet and got rid of it. My diabetic friends decreased their daily medication following high protein diet. Some were able to discontinue medication.

I am happy Paleo is working for you. I look forward to day you can discontinue medication.

I had to lower stress due to adrenal problems. I started by limiting time I spend on electronic devices. I even gave up reading magazines on kindle in bed. Then, I switched to eat dinner earlier and nothing afterwards and adding going to bed earlier. Sunlight upon waking and exercising before lunch also helped.

My doctor recommended taking magnesium. She said I could take 600 mg daily, but I only take 250 mgs after dinner. Magnesium glycinate is the best. Mag Oxide is the cheapest and worst. Mag relaxes body and good for heart and lowering bp.

Wishing you a relaxing weekend.

Farming sounds better every day. What I have learned is that those discount Drug Cards are not accepted at some Drug Stores if you already have a Medicare Supplement. So this year co-pay one type of Insulin is $ 97. but in the coverage gap, the cost is $ 200.00 plus. So this year I've looked into the Paleo lifestyle. I've been on it for the past 2 months. My blood sugars are more steady and staying well within range. To me Insulin doses are lower, thus my Insulin syringe last twice as long. Kind of encouraging to know the CEO of that Pharmaceutical company is not going to get that much of a rise in salary from me. That's motivation for me. Now those companies are not regulated for cost. For me, Insulin this year has tripled in cost from last year.

So my Goal for this year is to totally get off Insulin and work on stress and blood pressure.
Basically, get out there and move it!

Have a great weekend!!

Gas prices rose due to Syria bombing. We get double whammy. Our governor raised gas tax to fix roads. The citizens approved hike in sales tax last month. We had the highest sales tax of any state and will pay more now. Most of the citizens in my state receive government assistance and voted for tax increase. Sheesh!

The one RX I take cost $40 for 30 tablets the first three months of 2017. This month it was $20. I don't understand pricing, but I will take reduced price.

I noticed that food packages have gotten smaller too. Sara Lee bread I buy use to be 20 ozs. Now it is 16 ozs. And $4 a loaf. No wonder people are going low carb.

Cigs have gone up around here since 2 years or more ago. Right now a carton goes for $ 65 plus I understand that gas and that tax will be going up as well. Seems as if the basics for life is getting unaffordable quicker. It's no wonder crime in some areas is on its way off the scale.

Let's not forget the pharmaceuticals, that cost has risen over 100% with the drugs that are used the most. I can easily understand people going back to the days of Victory Gardens.

Some things never change....!

There is cold and snow in the mountains here. I stay far away from them. Homes lack insulation and storm windows here since this is suppose to be a warm state. Poor heating too. Either a gas heater on the living room wall or inefficient, expensive electric ceiling heat. My friends and neighbors use oven or space heaters to warm their place. I had to tape cardboard on my windows when it is 40 degrees to stay warm.

Ca taxed cigs $2 a pack on April 1st. Electronic cigs and supplies go up 30% in June. The state hasn't decided how much they will tax cigars and chewing tobacco, but the price will rise this summer.

My chain smoking neighbors and co workers have cut down to 2 cigs daily. A carton of cigs costs between $80-90 plus 10% state tax now. I noticed people picking cig up off the street today. Quit smoking sites advertised free medication. Advertising for pot growers has begun. State hasn't taxed pot and more people are purchasing certificates to get it.
Ca has gone to pot.

Good Morning,

I have been down for a week with sciatic, knee, and leg pain. I am pretty sure the pain from taking to high a dose of medication since it left when I lowered dose. I am just glad it is over and I can walk and enjoy this warm, sunny day.

I have appointment with tax preparer and need to get my documents together.

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

Enjoy the day.

We aren't having the 70-80 degree temperatures weathermen predicted either. It was 40 degrees last night and sunny, windy and chilly today.

I am happy to hear no tornado there. Sorry about the rain and fall temperatures.

My illness left and insomnia returned. It's always something.

Today we are having Spring showers and Fall like temps. This week we were supposed to be in the upper 50s and 60s. So fall that has not happened. The back yard is starting to look very boggy. We have had the gusty winds however, the tornado watches and warnings have been all around the area. The only thing of have seen has been rain.

Have a good week and feel better.

Coffee on patio is nice way to start the day.

It was 80 degrees here on Friday. Cold and very windy today. I haven't felt well all week and stayed home today instead of going to gym. It is suppose to be in the 50s the beginning of week and 70s by mid week. A lot of people are sick here from the constantly changing weather.

I can't wait for spring and 70 degree days.

Wish the storms were over around here. Either Wednesday or Thursday we are supposed to have freezing rain. There is still a few weeks left before the 1st day of Spring. So this week we have temps in the low to mid 40s during the day and low 30s through the evening and night.

Can't wait to start having coffee in the morning on the Patio emoticon !

Well the sun is out today however, not warming up. We have a cold wind but, not gusty as yesterday. Everyone here has the sneezing and coughing. Now I understand why January and February seem peak season for the Flu, Winter coats and sweats back out once again.

Oh my goodness. Other Spark members reported same conditions in their area.

It was short sleeve and jean weather here during the day and long sleeve, jacket weather tonight. Rain suppose to start tonight and last until Monday. Rose bushes that were cut back before the rain are already sprouting leaves. Bushes have grown two feet in the rain and bulbs that weren't seen last year are sprouting now.

My windows were frosted this morning. Sunny and 60 at noon. 50 and foggy tonight. Rain Sat and Sunday. I hope this is the end of rain and warmth returns so I can get a haircut. Too cold to cut hair during this weather.

I don't live near dam. Snuz lives near it. Dam water level is low enough right now. Praying it stays that way.

I had a disappointing doctor's appointment and went to Costco afterwards to walk and relieve stress. Ended up on stand up exercise machine that shakes body. It felt good, and reminded me of old exercise machine where you put strap around your butt and it shook you.

Off to do laundry while dry.

We're partly emoticon y today, calling for temps in the upper 60s however, that breeze by no means is warm. Got a feeling storms are headed this way. Are you in the area with Dams, and worried about overflow?

Have a gorgeous weekend!

Glad to hear your on the up-swing.

We are only to get in the low 60s for today and mid 50s this evening and overnight. However, Mr,. emoticon is out and warming the chill from this morning. Hopefully that 15% of rain will stay at 15% for the next few days at least.

Have a Warm and Happy Day!

emoticon today. Yeah! Windy and cold tonight. I'll take it as long as it is sunny during the day. Two more days of sun. I am going to soak it up.

A veggie garden is heavenly. I miss not having one. The herbs we planted in garden last year didn't survive the rain.

I feel better. Thanks for asking.

emoticon We have 2 days of rain, with 2 more days in the forecast.Then those spring like temps begin to head back to the 40s, D and I had spent the weekend discussing what's going in the garden this year. Never realized just how nice it is to walk out the back door and make a filling salad. It's also easier on the wallet at the same time.

Are you feeling any better?

Nine straight days of rain. Today is suppose to be last rain day. Than, two dry days followed by more rain. The gardens look good.

Thanks for screening reminder. Illness kept me from having them last year. So, I have a lot of catching up to do.

emoticon Hopefully in 1 month Spring will be upon us. Judging from the Weather forecast we're not out of Winter as of yet. Do hope National Weather Forecasters are wrong.

Just a reminder, it is time to start scheduling those yearly screenings.

Have Fun this week and make someone Happy!

The weekend was a complete bust for warmer temps. today however it is to hit 60 but, we'll see. Gald school off today, Fog was heavy and did not lift to 11 this morning.

Sinus was bad over the weekend, eyes watered, and started sneezing. Temp will tell whether cold or sinus infection.

Hoave a better week than the last. emoticon

We had terrible rain and wind storm on Friday. Sun and cool on Sat. Dark clouds in sky today. Taking plain Mucinex cleared my sinuses yesterday, but darn cpap machine clogged them up. Pulmonary said this is due to air pressure from machine. He recommended using allergy nasal spray before bed, which I do not feel helps much.

I better pack my bag and head to pool while dry out.

This area has warnings out for the weekend and next weekend due to warmer temps. Forecast is for early sinus problems. Hope those warmer temps last till next Fall however, I'm not going to expect them.

This has been one of the worst Sinus Winter I've had in many a year.

Get better, Spring is just around some corner!

I am sick again. Three days of sinus headache, chills, upset stomach, etc. Allergy nasal spray worked last night, but not today. Guess my body isn't use to sunshine and warmer weather. Biggest storm due Friday when I have a doctor's appointment. Not looking forward to driving in that weather. Prefer staying in bed and catching up on sleep I lost while ill.

My Az daughter is ill. My sister in Florida has bronchitis. Bugs everywhere!

I made the three ingredient cookies. They were awful. So, I tossed.

We had sun for two days and bracing for three storms that will hit the next five days. My windshield wipers need changing. I have new pair in storage, but couldn't find them yesterday. So, down to storage with ladder to find and install today before emoticon and emoticon arrives tonight.

I'll go with coffee at times till after Lunch. Then switch to tea for the rest of the day. Can truly say that coffee never really kept me awake at night. Working the night shift at the hospital, coffee was strong yet, once home hit my pillow and was gone for at least 5 to 6 hours.

Tee, have you made any Mug muffins or cakes?

You are right about trial and error. I can't have coffee after breakfast or it keeps me up all night.

I never was a juice person since it does a job on my stomach.

I learned to love plain water when I joined WW. Don't care for flavors, but enjoy a glass of decaf ice tea with lunch and cup of sleepytime tea before bed.

Speaking of water. It stopped raining yesterday morning and sun and warmth returned. The dry before next storm on Wed.

You heard one of the other ways to flush the nicotine out. However, someone with Diabetes or pre-diabetes does not needed OJ that much.

Personally I went the flavored water then and even now. Coffee I cut off at 3pm and switch to tea. That was not listed however, it helps me get the amount of sleep I get. Actually, it's everyone for themselves. Different things work for different people.

Trial and Error !

I drink a lot of water but never knew this. I was told drinking OJ causes nicotine to leave body slowly and slow cravings.

I'd wish to say a big emoticon With your Quits that you both have in progress.

One important reminder --- Remember the importance in drinking water during the day. You need to stay hydrated and flush that nicotine out of the Kidneys. Nicotine along with a few other toxic factors need flushed out of the kidneys. Flushing of the kidneys will slow down cravings for that nicotine and will not leave residual nicotine available to later develop kidney problems. emoticon is your friend, not your enemy!

Make 2017 your year of your Goal ..... A Forever QUIT!

Great gamegirl. Have you had any problems with ecig? There are a lot of reports about them catching fire. Television reported not carrying ecig near anything that contains metal, like keys. I also heard that lawmakers want to have recalls on ecig due to fires.

The first two ecig I bought broke within a week and I hardly used them. The latest required replacement parts, but lasted. I found out when I replaced the parts that other parts need replacing on regular basis. I wouldn't have discovered this if a part hadn't broken and needed replacing. Ecig manufactures or stores that sell the device should tell the buyer the whole story instead of waiting until something happens to inform customer.

Give yourself a hearty pat on the back, 25 days is nothing to laugh about. It's something to celebrate for the next 25 days. I remember my first 25 days, as that was an accomplishment I never thought I would see.

Keep up the good work!

Oh my goodness. You are brave. I freeze when it is raining and 40+.

It rained all night. Sunny with dark rain clouds headed my way. I need to put new wipers on my car that are in storage cabinet. I put it off since they are a pain to install, but with it raining weekly, it is time just do it.

I better head out and look for a bathing suit since mine is gone and I swim tomorrow.

Well, Frosty visited thru the night and has not left as yet. Ole` Man Winter has put his reservation in for tonight with an above temp of 7 F. and probability of less. Since not going out, that's fine with me. Therefore the dress code for today is layered!

Everyone still staying with resolutions?

Never quit a quit........ emoticon

A New Year, with New Challenges to face.
Here's hopping to keep up the pace.
Spend this Year with plenty of me time.
Put or keep those cigs out of sight and out of mind.

Have a great 2017! emoticon emoticon

Oh, my goodness. You have your hands full. Sorry you are dealing with snow.

It was so cold in my part of Ca the last few days, my bedroom window froze and melted in the morning. I couldn't take the cold last night and taped cardboard on window to warm up my bedroom. In the 60s today. Mid 70s tomorrow. Crazy weather.

Handy tip:

To clean snow off a car quickly. Hand held snow blower or leaf blower! Keep car doors from freezing, vaseline on casket.
