Hi, every one sorry i have been missing lately, my computer is acting up, i also have Bronchitis, i am on antibiotic's, and lots of warm liquids. Also my knee injury is from CKD and Osteo Arthritis, i am wearing a knee brace and it does help. I hope i dont have to wear this long though, it gets in my way but it does lesson the pain. Boy i sure found out i have abused my knees and i really didn't notice it until this happened. so every one not only take care of your Kidneys but take care of your Knees also.
I hope your weekend was good, my son cooked for us yesterday, he is a very good cook. He makes a very good spaghetti sauce.
When i get sick with this , i always want spicy foods, my children are the same way, i wonder if this is hereditary LOL.
It is raining here a nice gentle rain good for the gardens and one where you can set on the porch and rock in the rocking chairs. I am having me a cup of hot Tea, please take care every one. emoticonemoticon

Jen, why is it that the person who does the most in and for the family always is questioned. I know i was care taker for my Mother for 10 years my younger brother never did a thing, but was always there for the goodies. I dont guess it matters as long as we know what we do. I know you do a lot so its good you are taking time out for a while.
I also hope every one has a nice week end and a extra day which a lot of us get for the holiday and please remember why we celebrate . God Bless Americaemoticon

LOL... I do say NO - a lot! I do have boundaries.. I promise.. some in my family tell me I have too much time on my hands... I tell them REALLY?! Come and spend a day with me. I do not tend to sit down until dinner time and then it is go go go for another bit and I sit down for the night when Don leaves at 8:40.

At any rate - the goodies for this month have been very late - I am sorry team! I compiled all the weeks together and gave out a higher point goodie for all of your hard work! and dedication to sparking!

I am taking a LEAVE starting tomorrow and will be back Tuesday or Wednesday!
Happy Memorial Day! Love your kidneys.

Jean, it sounds like you continue to struggle getting those 2 letters out of your mouth: NO!

I'm back from vacation and the complete disintegration of diet and exercise concepts. With all my best intentions before I got there, I only exercised one day. So, once again, back on the program. With my daughter's wedding coming up on 7/7, I'd really like to lose as much weight as possible following an appropriate program. I'm thinking of trying one of the challenges again - I've not successfully gotten through one. I just haven't felt motivated enough, I guess. Now I am.

Goodness team where does the time go?!

I have been busy dress shopping for my son's wedding in July, taking care of mom and dad (dad had minor surgery last week - cataracts), my bro has been out - I have been taking care of him on and off this month, Don has not been well and I have been doing both of OUR chores here on the farm. Sometimes with all that I do I remind everyone in my life that I do have a bad ankle and that I am handicapped!!! I need to take a DAY or so... I am having like 30 people this weekend for the holiday. When what I really want is a QUIET weekend at home with my kids (family) and grandbabes, and Don.

I hope everyone is LOVING their kidneys.

Wow this is not my month, today i spilled a cup of boiling hot soup on my hand, leg, all over the floor. All i did was cry and do cold water on hand and leg. Cleaned up the floor and cried some more. Scott was at work so no one to pity me. I am ok, that was a joke, about pity me. The day was good up until my accident, did laundry, cleaned porch again, it always needs cleaning, i guess where we use it so much,

So sorry to hear about your difficult decision - I hope we can, in some small measure, provide you some emotional support as you build a new life. And exercise is a great way to bleed off some of the stress of the situation. Best wishes to you on your new journey.

Looks like you all have been busy.
dh and I separated on the 1st, so I spent the last two weeks
spring cleaning, rearranging, steamcleaning carpets,
and adjusting my life to being single. I am happy but it
takes a little getting used to only having the animals to talk to.

Finally back on my program as well, today is my first day back.


Joel 2:12-13 ... return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God.

2 Chronicles 7:14
... if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Hi every one, Have a great time Claire. I have been under the weather so to speak. I have to go back to the Dr. for my knee, it it is still swollen and is very painful. i did give in after 4 days of such pain i had to take some thing and i took a Aleve. I called Dr. and he said that was ok but to get my self in to see him.
Mothers day was good to me, my children called, except Scott and he is here. He fixed dinner and we spent the day just relaxing. Sorry to say Husband did not say any thing about this special day. My children are what matters at this time any way.
My daughter still lives in Ohio and my other son lives in Florida. I might be going to Floriday for a while it depends on what the Dr. says. I hope your week end was a nice one, every one take care.emoticons

I was going to go to my Daughter's a few weeks before her wedding, but now we've decided I'm going up closer to the event and then staying at her place after to take care of the animals while they are gone on a short trip somewhere. So, I'll be feeding goats and collecting eggs again. They've cleaned the barn down to the bare floor, so the flood of mice is gone. That used to give me the willies - I was afraid one would run up my pant legs - they were plenty enough and bold enough to run across our feet. I don't mind mucking the stall, but keep the rodents out of my way!

Today is packing day! Tomorrow I'll be falling asleep on the Big Island of Hawaii! Wasn't excited until I woke up this morning, now my stomach is churning. I'll be keeping up while I'm there, but probably not writing much, so I'll talk to you on the other side!

It has rained here too...we need the rain though....

You're most welcome about the question...if there is anything else I can help you with,
let me know.

I went out for my birthday yesterday and had a great time with my husband. He would
give me anything I want, but I told him a special card would be fine, so he must have
really outdone himself.

Darlene, it has been raining a lot here in Michigan too. Thanks for answering my question as to what you eat. You are sure right about everything ready made is full of Sodium!

I am having a good day today and hope all our team members are having a good day to. Never give up ...keep moving forward.

Davids mother fell twice last week, same day, and pulled tendons and ligaments loose in
her right ankle, so her foot is sore and swollen, she can't drive and that is driving her batty...
lol......so we have been running down there to drive her to the doctor, and took most of today
and he evidently promised her tomorrow he would take her to the beauty shop, so I may let
him do that so I can go do some shopping for my big day.....
Otherwise, we have loaded our bikes, took them and got them cleaned up, was hoping to go
for a ride tomorrow, but is raining here now....and supposed to rain tomorrow also....
Not much else going on except we are going to Red Lobster for dinner tomorrow night...
Hope everyone has a great Mothers Day....

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

Hi team, I am always running here or there or working here on the farm... spring time brings lots of work... (a note: we do not have animals on our farm, other than Fred (cat) and Brute (dog). Trees have to be trimmed and there are lots of branches from the winter. It has just been too cold to get out and work - so when it is nice - I am outside working.

My brother returned to work today - as I have been helping him recuperate.
Don and I went shopping for the wedding suit - he is decked out - except for the shoes.
I am still waiting for the brides mother to get her dress so I can get my dress.... the wedding is in 7 weeks... I am a little worried.

I am hoping to catch up on spark today, but we will see.

Love your kidneys and have a great week! Week 2 video for strength training is posted.

A warm weekend here in East Tn, but beautiful. I am going to have to take Lexy back to the Vet, for her allergy's, this week. Also get my self to family Dr. to check my knee. I have tried to stay off of it as much as i can but it swells in the day. Painful. I have not taken any thing for the pain so far, i try to stay away even from the Tylenol as much as i can.
My son is in NC , for the French Broad River Festival i hope having a good time, lots of music and food and old friends for him to see. He has friends who are musicians in the bands that play.
I hope every one had a great week end.

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

I eat veggies, fruit, whole wheat bread, grill my own chicken....any thing you get that
is already done in the stores is high sodium.
I try to keep a even balance in my diet....limit dairy products, I use almond milk .....
cut out all soda and tea, only allow one cup of coffee a day and drink 12 cups of water...
It is manageable but boring sometimes, but when I eat out on some special occasion I
try to have salmon instead of beef ............

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

Darlene: You mentioned you can't do the high protein low carb diet so what is your diet?

Caroline: Maybe a knee brace would help when you do things that you know will irrate your knee. I use one off and on . You can get one at Kmart for under 20 dollars. I am so glad I have one . When my knee acts up I can't get threw the grocery store without it.

Hi every one, i have been under the weather the last few days. Nothing serious, just trying to get my self some motivation. As i said last week i worked my self silly for a couple days because i felt good , them BAM i went down hill for a few days. I hurt my knee, some how while doing all this work, and its swollen and hurts. Its the same knee a surgeon told me 20 years ago i needed surgery on it immediately. I said ok left and never went back . I hope it will be ok,-- at the moment i am taking it easy.

I called our insurance co to come out and look at our roof, the storm we had did some damage and the tree limb that fell on the house fell on the mid to the end and pulled the gutters down. I did have some one come and look at it and they do business with our insurance co. so i hope we can get it paid for --hail and wind damage. i did take pictures of the tree limb on the house, so this might help. Always some thing . i was just thanking God today for our air cond. Which we had to put both heat and air in a few months ago. It got to almost 90 here today very hot for this time of the year. Enough about this today. Take care of your KIdneys.

David had an Endoscopy last week and the dr. told he better lose some weight pronto...
she is his surgeon and he has some Gastritis in his stomach lining, and so he is doing quite
well....unfortunately for me, I cannot do the high protein/low carb thing...that is how they
found my kidney problems....

We run from one extreme to the other on busy....Friday was the anniversary of the alabama
tornadoes, and so Sunday, we had a potluck and rising from the ashes type of thing at the
horse farm that was hit so badly. So we know busy.

I was supposed to go shopping for my birthday/mothersday Elliptical today, but we had other
things come up so guess we will go on the hunt again tomorrow. David likes a couple at Sears and I like one at Academy sports..............since he won't be using it, I think what I want
is going to be the priority on this one.,....lol

Miss you too Jean.....write anytime
Blessings,
Darlene
