Well, I'm sure my weight has gone up while I've been here on vacation! Screwed up eating habits, irregular meal times, just all sorts of problems. Top that with the fact I hurt my back before leaving home and that's really put a huge dent in my activity! My beach walks haven't been too long. Mostly looking at low tide for shells. I have taken a few walks but we've had a lot of rain so I haven't strayed too far! I don't want to get soaked like I did last year although tonight I was out on the beach and it started raining. Got pretty wet so I just came in and took my shower early because we're still having rain.
My brother, Scott and friend Shawn have been fishing off the beach. Today my brother caught a 4 1/2 foot shark. Shawn caught a stingray. Plus they caught a variety of fish.
we leave on Saturday. I'll be going back to my brother's house for a week. Hopefully this gas shortage won't affect our trip home!
Hope everyone is having a good week. Take care! Hugs,
Ramona

We arrived in New Smyrna Beach, Florida about 3pm yesterday afternoon. A little while ago we had helicopters circling over our area. The cops were out in the street, stopping any cars and searching them. So who knows? It's over with now.
I hurt my back I guess a week ago Thursday. It's feeling a little better. The furniture here at the condo is definitely not back friendly for me. I can't do steps very well but I've managed to go down the steps over the dunes down to the beach and take a couple short walks. My feet are happy to be barefoot in the sand and The Atlantic Ocean.
I hope everyone is doing okay. We have internet access at the condo, so I'm able to keep up with everything. Take care. Have a fantastic weekend!

Summer camp ended.. And it seems summer weather has too. Windy, cool much cooler and rain has come. This didn't stop me from having a great three days off. Will try to post later some pictures... Now I'm back in the kitchen preparing food for "fat camp" I mean family camp.

It's dry here. Are you going to get rain from the hurricane?
My asthma and allergies are getting the best of me. Had a sinus infection and was on antibiotics two weeks ago. Yes I got a shot of corticosteroids. Today it's all breaking loose. My yard was moved today, so that all in the air. Farmers are getting ready to harvest the corn so the coming days, air quality will be horrible. I've coughed and blowed my nose so much. Green tea with honey usually soothes my throat but not tonight. Don't have access to fresh pineapple juice. I tried canned but the necessary enzymes are not in processed pineapple. So I sent my son for cough medicine.
Tomorrow is taking my aunt to the store, getting my meds at the drugstore and laundry and packing. I need to feel better now.
Hope everyone has a great weekend

We've had a dry spell. Had a little rain. These high temps with even higher heat indexes are getting to me! Supposed to be a cold front I think around Wednesday/Thursday coming in bringing some fall like temps. Looking forward to that

Marty, I think someone was very happy, lol.
Rain rain and more rain. So tired of rain. I think one day we picked up around 5 inches. That was on top of all the other, plus we've had several more days of rain since. More in the forecast. Praying for those impacted by floods in Louisiana.
Have a great weekend

I'm just so stressed out from these doctor appointments I can't see straight. I'm mad. I'm tired of being in pain 24/7. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. It's just so frustrating!

hello everyone! It's good to see you all here! Just finished a blog about my neurology visit today and my migraines. Tomorrow I'm thinking of tackling deep cleaning (all but inside the cabinets - that's a job I'll need help for) the kitchen and dining room. I tackled the two bathrooms yesterday. I usually just do a quick it's clean enough type job so I figured before I leave I'd best get busy and be much more thorough. I have one spot in the living room I need to deep clean - it's where my dog and I sit , so I worked around it. Plus there's the entertainment center where the tv and all the electronics are that I'm hoping my son will dust thoroughly for me - I don't like messing around over there because I'm afraid I'll mess something up so I leave it up to him. He's not felt like it because he's got a bad tooth that broke and the nerve is exposed and he can't get in to a dentist until the 24th. So he's miserable right now. It's all he can do to go to work! Top it off one of his friends, who's like a son to me had his tonsils and adenoids taken out this morning. Next Wednesday his wife (who's like a daughter) is having a 8mm kidney stone cut out. Then the 24th my son and his tooth are going to part ways.So keeping the kids all lined out too is a priority. My son's friends have a 3 month old daughter, a 3 yr old son and a 6 yr old son, so those are my "grandkids, so to speak".
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Sous like everyone is okay. Glad you can shower after working out. Always makes you feel better.
Good luck with the new diabetic meds. My brother was put on some type of insulin last October and it was causing chest pains. Doctor just kept upping his meds ignoring the fact he had had a quadruple bypass in 2009. Turns out as a result he had three more blockages. One of the side effects was heart problems. He had two stents put in and a balloon opening of the third blockage. My bff mom was taking another diabetic med and it caused pancreas problems. They were afraid that it was cancer. Thankfully it wasn't. I took that Januvia once, I was in the bathroom constantly. I couldn't eat because food made me sick. If it stayed down I had horrible diarrhea. I couldn't do anything. I quit taking it and called my doctor. They filled out a report to send in on it. Beware if any changes.

thats ok ... just try eating low carb and getting in some exercise everyday ..
exercise was my down fall so I joined the 5% challenge and I have not lost weight but lost inches and bloodsugars are down ... happy and will keep it up , hopefully the weight will move LOL

just realized after a month that I can shower at the gym.... the water bills around here are so high I was only showering 1 x a week - even though I don't go out and do much - still like to wash - so did it today and it felt so good after a really sweaty workout .. just have to bring a new set of clothes next time - did not think of that - had to put on sweaty clothes - still happy about my discovery :0)

I finally had to graduate to insulin but eat lower carb so I don't have to take as much insulin.

what works for 1 might not work for others ... you do what works for you --- I was scared to try the new 1x a week one , but Dr said its similar so it might work , and no side effects that I can tell - but it seems to not always work - bs was 142 3 hours after lunch - which was not a big sugar booster - 1/2 slice of onion bread ( which I like so kept it - took a ton of white bread to the trash - no one wanted it ) it was the only starch , and I had protein and low carb veggies... ?? I also trashed the onion bread - too tempting .. did eat the potato without a problem

Thx for the info on the diabetes med, Fluffy. Byetta made my stomach ache so bad when I was on it that I had to discontinue it. Glad it works for you. Perhaps I will try the newer drug, too. :)

Glad you got a window AC Ramona, while you are waiting on the other AC. I am sure August will be better for you. emoticon

My BG went up drastically-dealing with a infection in my thumb again.

I went to work out --20 minutes aerobics-- and it brought it down again. It is still too high. I will be upping my land workouts to 3 times per week. I love that the fitness/PT place is so close to me.

Happy Friday, and enjoy your weekend!

Glad the new diabetic med is helping you. My blood sugars decided in June to return to really good levels. I mean seriously it was 178 one day and the next 118 and it's been in the 95 to 128 range since. I changed nothing. In fact, I'm walking less because of the heat. Go figure! My body is totally messed up. Glad you were able to get to the Farmers Market and get some veggies and garlic! Yum!
I can't swim a lick. I sink like a concrete block, lol. I do get in the pool in September when I'm in Florida and do a few exercises. One year we played with frisbees in the pool and that helped me out. Looking forward to September big time!
My air conditioner went out Saturday night. Nothing was coming through the vents. Since I live in a small town out in the boonies, I had to wait until today for anyone to come out. They were out this morning. The fan is burned out. So they went back to see if they had one in stock since they didn't have one with them. If not, they will order and let me know when they'll be back. After the fan's on, then they will test everything else since they need the fan to see if it's all working.
My cousin and her husband brought me a small window air conditioner to use late yesterday afternoon. The house has finally cooled down and I can breathe a lot easier.
I'm praying that August and the rest of 2016 treats me better than July did! I hope everyone has a fantastic day and week. Catch y'all later.

Wow, Fluffy! May I ask what the new med is?

We've had a lot of storms in Florida these days, but I am no longer afraid of storms.

That's really something considering one of my first nights here, I was in the hallway with the dog hoping that the tornado (which was on the ground near me) wasn't going to hit the house!

I jump in the pool between storms. Today, I did 30 minutes of laps in the pool. That is a first for me. My endurance is improving. I was a bit stressed due to some issue, and doing laps really gets all the stress out of me. Happy!

Hope everyone is doing well.

nice this morning .. 90 but humidity was lower and had a breeze- went to farmers market and its just up the street from the marina park - so walked around that for 2 miles - have figured out how much by the fitbit .. they also got rockers back to sit and rock and look at the blackwater river... so nice and relaxing ... they even use locks on the chairs but people steel them .. sad .. someone always has to ruin things for others
got tomatoes , cabbage and garlic - just using a 5.00 voucher , there was only 1 man that took them and last year got a tomato that had a store sticker on it .. not happy - but now there was several stands that took them - so happy with the garlic cloves :0)

. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hot, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

Marty, I'm glad to hear that you got some "me" time in. We all need it every now and again to recharge our "batteries". Hope things are going okay.

Hope y'all are staying cool and hydrated! This heat wave is just cranking itself up more and more everyday.

I went on a short hike, to Alice Lake Provincial Park earlier this month, I left Noni in the kitchen to serve our guess after I had prepared the meal. This me time was so needed.
I brought our little MSR camp stove to make tea and heat up some chili down by the river.
All in all I spent three hours just relaxing soaking up some sun and unwinding mentally.







The baby was left home too

Have fun on your excursion! I hope you don't get too hot and tired in this insane heat.

Marty, good to hear from you again. Noni did a wonderful job on Mom's birthday cake. Sounds like you've been really really busy. I hope you get a few days off in a row soon so you can get out and enjoy yourself.

Take care everyone. If you're in this insane heat, stay cool, stay hydrated!

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

family

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

At 10:30am we had 91 degrees and a heat index of 115. It's awful out and I'm afraid to look at the current heat index/temps.
Just trying to relax and recuperate from the heat exhaustion - I think I was getting seriously close to heat stroke last Wednesday. I've had that happen a couple times so I should be more vigilant but I wasn't paying attention to my body.
They've been saying afternoon or evening thunderstorms every day. Unfortunately the other day all it did was rain long enough to drive the humidity up even more. I seriously need to water my outdoor plants.
I think the hottest heat index I've been in was a 123. I was in Arizona on a day it was actually 123 and it was nothing like our heat at all because they had a dry heat.
Hope everyone stays cool. Take care. Have a good week. emoticon

I had that happen in my old car! It fell off while driving down the highway. No fun there!
Our upcoming forecast is looking even worse because we'll be in triple digits by the end of the week. I know when I last looked it was 94 with a heat index of 108 this afternoon so I quit looking. It was terrible when I went out to the mailbox. The air was so close I could hardly breathe.
Still trying to fully recouperate from last Wednesday's heat exhaustion and last Friday's severe migraine. My body still feels drained!

There should be some way that people who can't afford the fresh foods could get them cheaper or free. Everyone around here is all about how much money they can make off something. When it's higher than the grocery store you have to wonder. Plus they say they grow it but sometimes it looks or tastes like it's shipped in.

Well, the weather guy here said no let up in the heat wave. The actual air temps are going up and the indexes could be over 105 every single day. Hopefully we'll get a break. I miss being able to get outside and do stuff but I can't tolerate our heat.

Hope everyone has a great week!

I've never tried patty pan squash because I didn't know what to do with it. Our farmers markets suck. Same stuff: tomatoes, cukes, peppers. Nothing exciting or new ever and expensive.

Oh yeah when I'm gone in September and January I will have internet while I'm in Florida, just not at my brother's so I plan on taking my laptop so I can connect with everyone at night or just whenever I have time.

Just realized that I hadn't checked in since I got home. Geez, I'm so far behind. Been a rough week. Got overheated on Wednesday after taking my 89 year old Aunt to the grocery store. Appointment with my therapist Thursday who said it sounded like I had heat exhaustion. I've no doubt about that. I was still feeling feeling the effects on Friday when I had a major migraine hit. Still have it but I am feeling a little better.
My calories and exercise have been a bust this week.

I've never had patty pan squash. What is it?

Congrats on getting your monthly grocery shopping done.

Try harder--in everything that you do!
If the mind mends, the body will follow.
Gluten free is working for me!

By the inch, it's a cinch, by the mile, it's a trial!
I am baby stepping to health and wellness.

Survived the fourth fine. Actually more peeps set off fireworks on the 3rd here for some strange reason.
