Russell - hope things go well for you. The heat can be stressful, too.

Keep us updated on your health.

Russell, You take care of yourself!!!!

I guess today is the end of a long weekend for a lot of you. I remember when I worked how I loved these extra days off, but since I retired, it doesn't matter, all the days are about the same anymore.

(((((Big hugs))))) Russell. Hope to hear from you tomorrow.

Don't tell me what you believe; show me what you do and I will tell you what you actually believe.

Just so everyone knows, if I am gone a few days, I probably am in the hospital. I have had some back pain when I workout, and when volunteering, but I just put it down to old age, since I am losing weight, and most of the time felt good.

My shoulders felt like I was burning lactic acid, and there was pain in the center of my back. I had some shortness of breath, and neck pain, as well as chest tightness. I slept a lot today, and I feel pretty good right now, except for the fact that my AC conked out. I will make a decision tomorrow morning about going to the E.R. I hope to sleep well, and feel better tomorrow, which is what they will do in the hospital. They always cut out food/water for 24 hours, and then mess up my diet, then release me with small changes in my meds. The only good thing about a hospital stay, would be that the AC would be working when I got back home.

I am hoping to avoid that, and I have cut out my salty canned beans, and resumed taking the night Lasix they were trying to wean me off ( at my insistence ). I keep trying to cut down on pills, and just think I pushed it too far. I was rinsing canned beans, instead of cooking fresh, while reducing my diuretics. It may just be that, and 3-4 days from now, I will be back at 50%..lol

I plan to eat some chicken and green beans, watch an hour of TV, and head to bed, still feeling OK, and wake up feeling even better.Hope to talk to everyone tomorrow.

This is the last day of four glorious days off for me, so I've spent the day getting groceries, planning meals, prepping food, and doing laundry. I walked the boys this morning and then decided to skip my workout because that would make four days in a row - I think my body needs a break! I don't have much planned for after work this coming week (unless my favorite client calls in a panic), so I will fit in a couple workouts when I get home from work. I read a book today and played a Facebook game and really relaxed. I could get addicted to this relaxation stuff... too bad that Job Thing keeps interfering!

I've been pretty productive today, which makes me calm. I had four days off and put a lot of pressure on myself to DO SOMETHING ALREADY! but I think I mostly needed down time, and THAT I got a lot of. So. I start a new week well-rested and on top of my responsibilities (and with only one teenager to drive me up a wall this week!).

Glad someone started a Sunday thread.

I have been busy this afternoon doing laundry and helping hubby with a work-related PowerPoint presentation. All that eye work gave me a headache. And I was going to read a book. Maybe tomorrow.

Have a great evening everyone! emoticon

We had a little cookout w/ just my mom, stepdad, and a couple that are very good family friends. I had a cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce. It was good too! There were lots of carbs present, as always in my house. There was pasta salad, chips, cantaloupe, baked beans and then a red velvet cake. None of that stuff tempted me. I just ate my lettuce wrapped cheeseburger and was satisfied. I was the one who put up all the leftovers and not once was I even tempted. It's amazing how much I've changed only since May. Now I'm just washing clothes, Sparking and about to watch a movie.

Hope everyone has had a great holiday weekend and has a great upcoming week also!
