Happy Tuesday -- bad night sleep, but not letting it knock me down today ...

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday morning was confusing .. I was just pretty much walking in circles .. I didn't want to start on the next series of cards, but didn't know what I wanted to do with myself .. I cleaned up the kitchen, put away to the dishes from the dishwasher, and did a couple loads of laundry ..

Hubby was going to be spending the afternoon with mommy .. and so he wasn't getting involved in anything .. so he went out and pulled weeds .. and from what I watched .. some of the chinese are getting strong .. because he was having one heck of a time getting those weeds out .. lol lol .. but I stayed inside, with the temperatures in the 90's and the humidity high .. (hubby's love) .. I preferred to stay inside .. :)

I found a chair that has seldom been used in the last 20 plus years, and sat down .. and enjoyed the reclining, and my feet up .. It was getting close to lunch; and I didn't want to really get into anything .. We were planning on baked taters for lunch .. and it was getting close to that time .. I did go upstairs and play a bit on my puzzle .. watching .. er .. listening to TV ..

So -- you can see .. I was pretty much flailing and walking in circles ..

We had lunch, and he got himself ready .. at the same time I thought to myself .. "Self .. you are NOT going to peter your day away ... " .. so I went upstairs and got myself changed; and headed out to the mall for a mall walk .. I had had a couple "lazy walking" days .. and that was enough .. I couldn't continue with this pattern. It's way to easy to 'just put off' .. So -- I figured since I was really not accomplishing anything .. I may as well take Beauty out, and let her stretch her tires .. (my truck) .. and we went to the mall ..

On the way I was close enough that I decided to check out the directions to mom's friend's home .. I'm picking them up as well on Thursday .. and mom was trying to describe to me how to get there .. She did good, but that whole area had changed .. I found the street that we need .. I couldn't remember the actual address .. but it's a one block street .. so there should be no problem ..

Then I headed to my mall .. (it's close by .. so it wasn't out of the way .. however, I was out and doing something .. that was an accomplishment .. lol)

I did 2 1/2 laps in the mall .. and for some reason had to take a glucose tablet .. I don't know why .. I had stable food ... ohhhh wait .. I had cereal for breakfast .. but by the time I left after 2 1/2 laps .. ( I do 2 full laps including the offshoot sections .. and then do 1 lap just in the main body .. no offshoots) .. I was sweating pretty darn good, and well -- I was happy to get out to the truck, and take a biiiiiig drink of my water .. I felt better after that ..*note to self .. not only glucose, but a big drink of water as well* ....

Anyway -- I had a good and quiet drive home .. I decided to take a detour, and drive "the rest of the way" to make sure that I will have the time set right .. and there should be no problem (barring any unforeseen situations) .. :) so they get there by 1:00 as planned .. :)

I got home and had myself 3 pieces of fudge, (1 little packet), and a small bowl of frozen grapes ... That was it for my sugar (except for honey nut cheerios in the morning) ..

For dinner we had cheddar sausages .. 2 each on a bun .. I was truly hungry and I was hungry FOR sausages on a bun .. so that's what we had ..

I have no idea why, but last night was the most horrible night sleep that I've had since this all started back on July 1 .. ?? and I can't pinpoint why .. I got exercise, within my goal of my steps, I didn't eat much sugar .. I don't know why I did sleep well .. with the exception of "I am sore" .. but as of this morning we're working on that again ..

I stop taking my supplements whenever I take prescriptions, I don't want to take the chance of the supplements interfering what the prescription is supposed to do .. The doctors never say I can't take the supplements, and they have full record of what I take .. but I don't like to take the chance .. .. and so I've been 10 days without my Curcumin .. it's a natural pain reducer that is based with cumin which is a natural pain reduction .. well -- I hadn't taken it for 10 - 11 days .. and well -- it was reflecting and was shining it's ugly head yesterday .. Since my antibiotics are done (yes .. I took the WHOLE thing !!! lol) I started taking my normal supplements this morning again .. and in hopes that all the creaks and groans will give up .. and I can be back to my normal bouncy self soon .. lol .. but that's the ONLY reason that I may not have slept last night ..

The weather is gorgeous out today .. so I'm thinking my walking will be outside today !!! WOOHOO !!!! I'm not going to let my bad night sleep take over my day !!! I will be up and active ..

Tomorrow -- I'll be going on my day trip on my own .. looking so forward to it !!! and the weather is supposed to be great !!! Sunny and upper 70's with no humidity !!! WOOHOO !!!!

So -- as I close for today .. I want to leave you with the announcement made last night .. Mom came out with her TWO little ones ..

Told you she was going to pop a multiple again !!! :) and she didn't let me down !!! lol

With that close of peace .. I wish you a wonderful beautiful day !!!!!
