Hi All~

I feel like the beginning of October is a fresh start! I usually get this fresh start in September but I was too into summer this year...lol.

I will start October with a 2 day juice fast

then, I will:
1. exercise 3 x week for 30 minutes
2. lose 7 lbs for October
3. Keep sodium below 1500 mg/daily

Happy end of September all!

Donna~

Try using Mrs. Dash, no salt spice's I use lemon juice on a lot of things. Also Bragg's has no salt spices and herbs. You can go to there web site and look them over. Some stores carry Braggs. I use there vinegar and no salt spices.
I tend to have swelling in my ankles so i have to stay off the salt.
Wishing you the best.

Thank you...I have been struggling with the sodium issue. The struggle needs to stop. I need to stop beating my kidneys up with the excess sodium. Praying that I will.

Jen, sorry about septic problems, i can imagine. We should have ours cleaned I'm sure. Seems like with new roof and spouting, its always something. Last winter it was a new heat and air unit. Recently new Microwave. Now its redo the bath off the hall. New faucets, commode, wall paper? and paint and etc. And we are going to have the house pressure washed and painted. And i am thinking about making the spare room i call my computer room into a semi bedroom, and still have my computer in here. Or get me a laptop, i have decided yet. Plus money has to be considered,
Did a little cooking this weekend, not much, i am back to the Dr. Tuesday for my foot. . I just need to stay down and quit limping around, it puts pressure on my back and knee and i get muscle spasms. Oh well it could be worse. Every one LOVE, LOVE your KIDNEYS

Hi All!

The last few days I have really slipped on the low sodium....I don't even want to say how much I've had, but my weight is up 2 lbs for no other reason.

However, I got goodies today from you and it gave me encouragment to get right back on track. I plan to have a great low sodium week and a great week at the gym...plan to be there 3 times this week.

Thanks!

Donna~

Thank you - I hope so too - she is NOT one to listen to the dr!

She was on her feet yesterday cooking for over an hour and then did laundry last night - so when I called this morning - she was in AGONY!

Of course I changed my plans for the day to go help her and dad.. not complaining just communicating... UGH! I made them dinner - (soup) - but then my brother called - he is bringing dinner - so I took care of the soup for another day - and we had a nice lunch!

I am chilling for an hour - then busy some more!

Lord can I please have a break - meaning a day at home - just one day is all I am asking for - this week. I really need it. Thank you.

Love your kidneys!

Caroline - no - back in July we had a septic pipe burst/back-up - we have spent almost 1000 on that darn thing this summer - I have been cleaning the basement weekly, but the smell is still there... so I started cleaning the tubs and items that are stored near the pipes that leaked... or spat septic tank gunk... what a terrible job! My house smells better though! So I hope with this clean-up I got everything - I hope... crossing my fingers and my toes but not my eyes....

Darlene - I hope that everything goes well with your fair.

I spent last night at the hospital with mom - they thought she had a blood clot... she is OK... just an infection.
I had to go to the exact same place today for a test... the dye they gave me could have potential for shutting down the kidneys complete.. they tested my creatinine... .88 woohoo!
Then I went and got new tires on my car... shopping for a few things for mom and dad... went to mom and dad's as mom is on bed rest for a few days... dad cannot do much... came home fixed dinner spent a few minutes with Don and now I am doing spark for a few minutes... good nite ya all.

Received my order of dog food in the mail Fed X and it was wrong kind. I called them and they were sorry and will send out the right order. They told me i could have the one they sent if i could use it. I told them i would give it to the rescue center. they were happy and i was happy.
The weather has been beautiful, you can fill Fall in the air. Sat the 22nd is the first day of Fall.
Jen did you have a flood in your basement? We have had this happen and it is no fun cleaning up. I have all my Christmas things in our basement/ garage.
I hope every one is doing good this day.

I am shocked by the loss of a special spark member - Unstoppable aka Teresa, who was 49 yrs old.

I have been busy with mom and dad... we took two walks yesterday around the block.

I have finished cleaning my office - cleaning out boxes and tubs.... I now have three empty ones..woohoo and I am working on finishing my basement from the sewage mess - I have been cleaning the walls and floors weekly..but decided to wash everything in the basement - stuff that cannot be wiped down is getting tossed. Most items are in tubs...thank goodness.

Keep loving your kidneys!

Salmon---Just egg, bread soaked in egg and a little milk, onion, celery, what ever spices i feel like, onion and celery chopped very fine. Pull the bread into pieces and soak in egg and milk mixture and then mix it until gooey, You will not be able to know there is bread in the Salmon, some times i use cracker crumbs or bread crumbs.
Nice weekend here temps nice and not humid. Scott mowed the Lawn and trimmed. We made Tacos, and Beef mixture for Veggie Soup this will go in freezer for later use. He also grilled hamburgers on the grill. I did grind coffee beans this morning, and it smelled so good. Love those fresh beans for the coffee.
I am craving a piece of Pumpkin Pie, sounds so yummy.
Can you believe this month is half over already. I go to see my PC Dr. tomorrow for the foot and knee problem. I hope they can do something for this, it throws my whole body out of wack. It has even caused muscle spasms in my back.

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.

Me, pretty good day, still limping around. Had Salmon Pattys for dinner, salad, sliced tomatoes and green beans. Scott helped cook . He is a great cook thank goodness.
He gave Lexy (dog) a bath, then she goes out to potty and comes in with mud all over her right side. Sounds like a child doesnt it.
I am going to a new Nephrologist Oct. 10. So i will be doing some more tests. She is in Knoxville so i will have to travel a little farther. Thats ok , about 30 minutes away with traffic.
Hope every one is doing ok and Loving There Kidneys.

Had to have septic work done too.
I do cook in my microwave - not all things but a few select things.

I am being a little annoyed today. I just dont understand why people seem to nick pick as the saying goes. Life and our health are to important for this is my way of thinking. On to other things.
We had a new roof put on our house 2 weeks ago, now for the Gutters and drains, to go up. Also we will be getting the house pressure washed and then painted Every thing happens at once seems like. My microwave OD and had to get a new one, my old one was 19 years old and at the time i bought it ,--it was one of the best, now they dont make it any more, So i want to see how long the new one lasts, i bet it wont last 19 years. I didnt realize how much i used it for reheating things until not having it. I dont cook in one.
I hope every one is doing good on there Kidney Diets and vitamin's, meds and there water intake.
Does any one cook in there microwave oven?
