Trying to get enough fiber . . . Ugh!!!

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Maybe overdoing on the fiber. Seem to be bloated some for a few days. Hope this stops!

Woke up with a sore throat again. Ears seemed to have some congestion. Taking some stuff. Think it is from all of this dampness and having the window open all night. I did enjoy the flax flat bread from Aldi's. Loaded with fiber. I am eating avocados more often now. Good fats and some fiber. Hoping to do better this week. When I get over this slight illness, it will be a little easier to get some exercise in. The bone spur is getting smaller--Thank God!

Our 'walk-in' shower is finished. We had a new vanity put in, too. Changing the flooring -- not done yet. Have some painting to do to freshen it up. Years ago I did it in pink and white. Changing it to green, with some white. Someone is coming tomorrow to demonstrate windows. We need a new one in the bathroom, but can't do any more than that. DH hates it when people come and try to high pressure us into purchasing something we can't afford.
I told them we only need one window and they said they have a coupon for $500 toward a purchase. If we can't get one small window for that amount, it would be highway robbery.
We'll see . . .

Have a great week ALL! emoticon

    Sounds like the update to your bathroom will be lovely - something I'm interested in doing myself! (Just have to convince DH that our 30-yr-old fixtures NEED to be updated....)

    Have you been adding fiber slowly? If you try to do too much too soon you'll find yourself bloated. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water to keep everything flowing.

    I'd be wary of the $500 coupon. Can't really see them letting you apply that to one window. Just keep a look out for the "catch". Good luck with finishing your bathroom remodeling. That's something I have to start thinking about.
