emoticon Good Morning. Yes, I am still alive-lol.

Yesterday was a FULL day of sticking with the eating programme in quite awhile. No gluten and actually a wee bit under my calorie range. Now on to Day 2 emoticon

As always I love the quotes Rhonda. And I always admire your consistency.

It can be a challenge to be generous, some days we can feel like there is not enough. What is surprising is that when you give, this opens up your heart and you may then receive. So, give today. Share kind thoughts, words, actions and feelings. See what happens!" E.G

emoticon the no/low fat diet is certainly an issue and I admire you-I would have been blabbing all over the place about Dr. Perlmutter and the Cereal Killers.
Apparently the piragi were good, I did not try them due to the bread. I need to work on them though. The bacon was good, Al said, but I could tell just by smelling that it was not as good as the one my s-i-l used.
Good about the emoticon but at 97 I really would have thought seriously about the pool.

Good Morning emoticon I did my stability ball workout yesterday. I had a fleeting thought hitting the pool but it was 97 outside and I decided I would pass. emoticon Yesterday, the office staff was talking about how healthy their lunches were, low fat or no fat processed food. I'm thinking no not really. I was good and kept my mouth shut. emoticon

Yes, I had a good trip. I stayed with my s-i-l who is a great person and also got to visit with my niece Katrina. Rita showed us how to make the Latvian piragi that her (and Al's) grandmother used to make. Al has talked about those for a very long time and his aunt made them for him in Latvia. Rita got the recipe from her aunt and translated it to English. A description can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C4%ABr%C4%81
dz
i%C5%86i
The day before we made them we headed to the Farmer's market to find double-smoked bacon as that is what the grandmother used for the filling. I brought Rita some of the sauerkraut she had showed me how to make on a previous visit and I passed. emoticon lol-this is Sparkpeople and all this is about food emoticon It is a long drive by myself, about 7 hours each way, but I put my tunes on and when I sing along at the top of my voice there is no one to be bothered.
And guess what I am doing today?
I can understand you no wanting to swim if being attacked by vampires. But you have kept up your consistency and been exercising. emoticon

"Life, in all of its fullness, is happening right now. While our thoughts are sometimes elsewhere, beautiful opportunities and moments are being passed over and lost to the flow of time. And though we cannot possibly fully experience each leaf that falls to the ground, sometimes we get so attached to reaching our goals that we don’t pay attention to the wonder all around us. When we do that, we live in a world that exists only in our heads, while we miss life itself. There is so much to be enjoyed and appreciated that we need to remember to pay attention to the present moment, because it is the only space in which we can experience being alive." M. Taylor

emoticon emoticon Good Morning

My friend is healing, you could barely see the bruises on Saturday. I always have a grand time with her. Last night we had dinner at the home of another couple. They face their seventieth birthday this year-this is the couple I told you about who have been told they are pre-diabetic and yet eat extremely healthy. Thus, you can imagine what a healthy meal we had in the company of good friends.

I had come home on Saturday with several fans of daylilies my friend split for me as there was supposed to be emoticon yesterday through Wednesday. I was too tired Saturday night but when I heard thunder Sunday morning you should have seen me gallop out to the garden. emoticon I wonder if there is a record for how fast one can plant daylilies? I had all nine of them in the ground as the first raindrops fell. It should qualify for aerobic exercise for sure. The nice thing is the temperature has dropped along with the humidity but they say the rain returns this evening.

I agree with Rhonda Desi- emoticon and emoticon .

Good Afternoon

You must be feel better now that you are getting a better sleep Kim. How nice to have family for the holiday.

Rhonda, still storms? But at least you are getting your w/outs in.

Yesterday I got through without snacking by constantly reminding myself of the quote I saw on SP. It was basically that I don't have to be perfect. I just have to be better than yesterday. What a help that was yesterday and thus far today. Mind you, it was also helped by having friends over, one of whom is now on a Dr. monitored weight loss program. She is a prescription liquid diet for another 9 weeks so no way was I putting out any food. Also, she is a Type ii diabetic who was facing increasingly bad numbers. Last night, she looked wonderful by the way, she was ecstatic as her blood glucose numbers were all in the normal range last blood tests. She is already having medications reduced and this is only 3 weeks in!

Happy Hump Day.

Cheers Elizabeth

Crazy humidity and thunderstorms daily here too. I'll be glad when it cools off a bit.
Switched to 2nd shift. Starting to sleep better already except for the heat.
Had a wonderful holiday weekend. I had 5 days off. 2 BBQ's with the whole family. Glad Tim and Becky made it from South Carolina and PA. IT was nice to have everyone together. Had bonfires both days and amazing food.

emoticon Rain here today with the possibility of thunderstorms but probably not as bad as what you might get. I had not thought too much rain would affect the pools but once you say it; perfect sense. It must be a big change from the drought you have had?

Nothing much planned here today.

Good Morning emoticon another hot and humid day with a chance of dangerous emoticon and thunder storms today emoticon .I think the almost daily rain is having a big impact on the pool, they just can;t seem to get the ph levels balanced.. My fingers are crossed that it will be ready to go tomorrow. It's always closed on Mondays.

Elizabeth I;m surprised your friend can even move after a horse falling on her and like you said she is lucky to be alive. I'm glad you have some friends that are gluten free it makes it much easier for you when eating at their place.

emoticon emoticon emoticon Good Morning Friends. The weather appears to have no idea what it will do today, leaving me unsure if I should spray the roses or not.

Rhonda-I don't swim now but all the years I did I never recall the public pool looking as you have recently described! Are they going to get it usable soon as I know how much you enjoy your pool time.

After SEEING my friend yesterday and hearing the story it is nothing short of a miracle that she was not killed much less suffered more injuries. She did finally go to the ER and they X-Rayed almost every joint and her skull. She looks very much like a battered wife where a blunt object was used on the body. In fact, as she was telling me how puzzled she was by the X-Ray tech's initial reaction I told her I was sure that is what he thought. She brightened up then and said that explained why his response changed when she told him what had happened. So, other than bruises and perhaps some torn muscles and a mild concussion she will be OK. By the way, she and her husband have now gone gluten-free and I had a lovely pasta salad for lunch with her.

Everyone enjoy your Sunday. It is laundry and jam-making day here.

Cheers Elizabeth

Good Morning emoticon the pool water looks way to murky for me to get in it today, so I just finished one of my boxing workouts. emoticon

Elizabeth you friend is very lucky she didn't get hurt worse than she did! Enjoy your visit. I think it's nice that you told your friend with the heart issue about the film and he got something out of it.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! emoticon

Have a wonderful Saturday.

emoticon emoticon emoticon Wishing all of you a very Happy and Safe Fourth of July.

I had my friend, the one with the cardiac arrest out of nowhere watch the video and he too saw the similarity to his situation: fit, healthy and boom. We were both very interested in the DNA test that was conducted as neither of us had heard of that. We are aware of family history of course but the DNA test would be a much better predictor. In my case, for instance, my father had chronic angina and two bypass surgeries and one mild heart attack. But was it DNA? He was morbidly obese most of his life and he smoked up until he was about 50.... So much to think about. And yes, one thing at a time-lol, but felt better about eating the pork ribs last night emoticon

Elizabeth glad you liked it, yes it is a lot to think about and harder than giving up gluten. Right now I would continue focusing on the gluten and how much better your joints are feeling. We all have to find a balance and what we can live with..

Thank you so much for the suggestion Rhonda. I just finished watching the film. Wow, so much to think about.

In my case, last Fall when I was put on the statins my doctor had tested for inflammation prior to the prescription. So, anything that reduces inflammation I am all for but this will be even more difficult that just looking at the gluten.

Very glad you had a better sleep.

emoticon Elizabeth I glanced at the article and it is very interesting. I very much agree with what they are saying, of course everyone is different and what works for one body isn't true for others. If you are interested in a short film on the subject, it's called Cereal Killers and you can watch it for free on Dr. Mercola's site. hope I spelled his name right, I think you can see it for free through tomorrow, it's a little less than an hour.

I slept much better last night! emoticon I'm back from my pool workout, the water looked good and I got in before the emoticon emoticon starts later today.

Sorry to hear you are not sleeping well Rhonda, let's hope tonight is better for you.

Just read an interesting article in Time, from June 23 I think. It is called 'Eat Butter' of all things. Anyway, it is saying very much what Grain Brain said in the discussion about fat; that cutting fat and substituting carbohydrates has been a bad idea. time.com/2863227/ending-the-war-on-f

It certainly makes an interestig read.

Good Afternoon Friends

Rhonda, Congrats on getting 2 weeks off. What a shame about the pool! We too were over a hundred with the humidex yesterday and I just hid inside all day.

Only way I slept was with one of my more powerful sleeping pills. And two nights of those and I am back to having trouble sleeping again. :-(

Elizabeth good job on your eating and drinking, I'm impressed since it was a sad and stressful occasion. I know you are both glad to be home. How did you sleep with no ac? emoticon Happy Canada Day! emoticon emoticon Do you have any plans for today?

Kim congrats on the extra day off and going back to the 2nd shift. It sounds like you and Bruce had a great time at the Ren Fair. emoticon

I'm off for the next 2 weeks! emoticon I will be getting together with friends and chilling out. Because our humidity is so high right now the heat index is already above 100! Yuck! and the pool is green because of all the rain. emoticon I just finished my stability ball workout. emoticon

We have had lots of rain in the past week but it was a gorgeous weekend. Thank goodness, the rain held off until I was at work last night.
Sorry to hear about Gavin's arm Desi. Hope it heals quick.
Elizabeth, Sorry to hear about Al's sister's interment. So sad. Sounds like your exercise and eating were fairly good though.
Butch and I bought Brendon and his baby sister Serenity a sandbox for Christmas/birthday presents. Both loved it. Serenity was fascinated by the shovels and other sand toys and didn't try to eat any sand. That's ahead I am sure. I held her though so she didn't actually get right down in the sand since she is only 5 months old.
Saturday Butch and I went to a local renaissance fair. It was a fairy theme but there were also goblins, trolls, knights, unicorns, queens, elves, gnomes, mermaids, dragons and every magical creature in between. Mostly faeries though and what a delightful fest it was. There was an amazing Celtic band there that played bagpipes and drums. I bought one of their CD's. I love to listen to Celtic music. It was sunny and hot all weekend, high 80's . I'ts supposed to get into the 90's a couple days this week including today. Very humid here too.
Sunday we went to Butch's nephew's high school graduation. A nice picnic by a beautiful lake.
Good news, I am finally going back to 2nd shift at my job. And the best news is that I will go following the 4th of July weekend which for most is a 4 day weekend shut-down but because I am going from 3rd to 2nd, I get an extra day off. Not having to go back to work until Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. instead of Sunday night at 11 p.m.
Not sure yet what we are planning to do other than a picnic and campfire at one of my sister's houses. I would like to go away for an over-nighter to the finger lakes but we shall see. kim

emoticon Back from 2 nights in Rawdon. We went up in part as it was supposed to be the internment of Al's sister, which is sort of was. However Al and I are harbouring some disappointment about how it went. That said, my eating and drinking both were fairly good (for a huge change in Rawdon!) I got a minimum of exercise however I did make myself walk to the lake a couple of times.

Like you Rhonda we sweated! It has been a very long time since I slept without a/c.

Only waterproof cast I know of Desi are the air ones and they generally are only emergency splints really. Hope the healing goes well.

Poor Ruairi, I hope he feels better soon. Elizabeth so many people think the same way Al does, good for you, doing what you can to take care of yourself. You know your body and what makes it feel good or bad! I think it's cool that the health center is in Naples.

emoticon Grey skies after a very heavy rain yesterday. At one point the rain was coming down so hard on the hall skylight I went looking for a fan I had left on as it was that sort of sound down the echo chamber of the hall.

Ruairi has had a tough two days with diarrhea. I took him to the vet last evening and they did a couple of blood tests which thankfully were negative. So the diagnosis is some kind of colitis and he is back on probiotics and antibiotics and a bland diet. I spend the day worrying and watching.

Just finished Grain Brain. Very very interesting. I think when we are back living in the States over the winter I may buy the Cyrex Array three test that Dr. Perlmutter recommends as the best tests for gluten sensitivity. I would have to pay here for anything so might as well do it there, after all, his health center is based right in Naples. As to following all his recommendations-Yikes but virtually impossible with Al around. For one, he is not convinced the sensitivity even exists, other than celiac, and secondly he does not believe I have it so there is a constant issue over foods. But, even what I can do is helping.

How is everyone today?

Yes, no impulse for the donuts or muffins but was 'starving' by the time I got home.

Conferences/seminars I remember those days of sometimes uplifting and sometimes struggling to keep awake. I wish you the former Rhonda

emoticon and thank heavens it is not 110 here! How can you stand it Desi? No wonder you were staying close to home and the A/C.

Kim, a strike is never a good thing so I hope a compromise. A 60-hour work week is awful. I worked 12-hour shifts most of my policing career. We would work 4 on and 4 off and every so often it was 5 off so there was no overtime paid. Since we alternated between 2 day shifts and 2 night shifts that first day off was generally a lost one but our members loved it. However, this sounds like you would work 5 days straight and have 2 off and return to work. Is there a law in NY about how many hours before OT is paid? Anyway, as I said, I hope it gets resolved without a strike as no one wins in those cases.

Today I am meeting two friends for coffee at a donut shop. The 'Canadian' Tim Horton's. Fortunately I do love their coffee and, despite all the stereotypes of donuts and cops, have not been a donut fan for probably 35 years so won't feel like indulging....mind you their muffins are good. emoticon
