Diet Update

Date: 2013-06-21 15:23:00


No significant weight loss to report yet. Just a few pounds of water weight. I'll most likely report the first official weigh-in as of the Monday.

Trying to keep around <2000 kcal/day with no more than 20 carbs. It's going well, as usual. I just have to try REAL hard not to let myself get too bored with the food choices. It's a damn good thing I like all of them!

PSA coming up on July 8th. Starting to get nervous again. I wish I could get used to this and just accept it but it seems there's little chance of that. Well, at least if and when it DOES start to rise, at least the suspense will be over.

Other than that, IT'S WEEKEND EVE!!!   :)

Cheers!

A Little More Rambling

Date: 2013-06-16 19:31:52


I had a real nice Father's Day. Certainly was different from last year, lol!
We Skyped with the kids in SC for a while and &quot;cyber-cuddled&quot; with my grand-daughter. She's getting so big so fast! :0

We both just wanted a quiet day to do things that we wanted to do and it turned out to be the perfect day for it.

Went to a friend's house last night for dinner. Being back on my diet made anything I could eat hard to find but at least you couldn't accuse me of overeating! ;)

Ever have the feeling of ants crawling all over your body and you look and there's nothing there? Well, I REALLY have them!
We are INFESTED with the little bastards! We're on our 2nd week of ant baits and still they keep coming! And yes...they bite!

Gonna go have dinner now and chill for the rest of the evening.

Cheers!

Father's Day

Date: 2013-06-15 22:11:18


Tomorrow will be the 1st anniversary of my getting sick. Seems like the year flew by in a couple of weeks! At least I'm alive and, with any luck, disease free and I'm very grateful for that.

The back issue is getting better every day and I will stop the Oxycodone soon. This means I will be able to get a little real exercise which I haven't had for weeks.

Looks like I'll also be able to get my jury duty permanently excused. Dr. Y wrote an excellent letter explaining the situation so hopefully the court, in their infinite wisdom will accept that.

Diet is going well. I will post updated weight next weekend.

Cheers!

I Dropped The Ball...Again!

Date: 2013-06-11 19:51:04


Sorry for no posts lately.

About two weeks ago I managed to throw out my back and it wound up getting so bad I could hardly get up out of bed!
I just got a short course of 'Oxy' which at least allows me to move around. I've been so distracted by the pain that blogging has been the last thing on my little mind.

Got a bad start on the diet too but I'm now starting to settle in to it properly.

Gotta go see the doc on Thursday for my usual BP check. I'm going to ask her if she'll ok an MRI of the lumbar spine to see if I really do have damage there. Gotta do it while I still have insurance.

Nothing really new or interesting. Just really hot here but then I should be used to that by now. Lol!

The hummingbirds are coming to the new feeders every day now! That's SO nice to see.

Well, gonna go now and fix dinner as it's getting a little late.

Everybody stay well! Cheers!
