CJ~Thanks for your update! Been missing your around here!SS about your Back! Hope it gets better like mine did! Hear ya on coughing or sneezing when your back hurts. Also, Hope your Mom heals well! Another job?! Living High on the HOG...Huh? Yeah...that Roach was a Flyer! Haven't seen one of those Here! I've seen them in Texas though! They are called Palmetto Roaches!

Misty~Great news on your back!Back to the gym! That's some warm weather over there! Must look into that PC Baker.

Lisa~Yeah...I can look up my test results too. It's nice to have that feature from our Hospitals. Yeah...I hear ya about looking up Dr. Google! Hope your appt. goes well tomorrow. Yeah...La Cucaracha indeed! I did get the Raid out Stat!! He went Belly up really fast! Going to Google that PC Baker. Toe is still sore & swollen...but, doesn't hurt as much.

Karen~Come up for Air yet?

It'sTime!

Grilled up Fajitas yesterday. So, going to have that again today. Along w/some Deli items I bought at Whole Foods. Geez...WF is Expensive!! Any of you shop there? I went in for cilantro & eggs....120.00 later I got out of there! It was a Splurge...w/Easter wknd & all?!

Got to read to catch up with everyone!! I survived another tax season, and we got along really well, considering.

But my scale went up a little bit, so I really need to come here every day to get my scale back down.....

Will be catching up. And a road trip starting tomorrow...so that won't probably help the scale. Manhattan Ks for an estate auction.

Sun is shining, but the guys aren't in the fields yet.....too wet. Calving. Almost nice enough to start riding again. Need excercise, too.

So I am off all alcohol for 2 weeks, and of course no tylenol either which I always avoid but was being dumb this time.

They will re-check my blood in two weeks. Hopefully I didn't do any permanent damage and my liver will bounce back. I will be drinking lots of water and juices that are good for detox. So that was my Friday....lol

I am going to post this before I delete it again... anybody got some healthy liver tips. (other than don't drink daily while popping tylenol)
Wow. Sounds like you are having a tough time. good luck and take care!!

Hi Gang!

Lisa~Yes, mental pause sucks! Yup, you might have a polyp hiding. I had one that showed up on my hysteroscopy & GYN recommended uterine ablation & D&C. Yup, it will be a breeze compared to Natural Childbirth! I have been eating No no foods too! Haha on the la cucaracha muerta!

V~How was mammo? I had my liver enzymes elevated a while back from taking to many naproxen for my back along with some drinking. I quit both and got retested & they were lowered. I had my colonoscopy in March. The worst part is the bowel prep before it! I had to use the toilet 18 times!!! I didn't need sedation this time, so recovery was better.

Deb~What did you order at the J-BBQ place? Good plans for your trip! How long are you staying this time? Those martini picks sound cute. I have quiet a few sets of Tini picks. They are also useful for Hors d' oeuvres instead of using toothpicks. Do you like olives or cocktail onions in your Tinis? I like onions & a lemon twist. Oh, On the lotion...I like Keri Lotion the best. I also like lotion by Vasoline & a CVS extra moisturizing lotion.

CJ~How's Mom doing? Stitches all come out ok? How's Gizzie doiing? My neighbors dog used to hate storms too. He would go hide in her bathtub & cover his head with his paws!! Oh, my toe is still sore from when I fx'd it in Feb.. Haven't SUP'd much this trip. We have only gone twice. The wind conditions/direction haven't been good for SUP'n where we like to launch/paddle.

Karen~Yay! You survived another T-season! scale is up here too! Have a fun road trip & hope you come back with something fantastic from the auction!

Misty~Check in!

Yesterday was a hot/humid day! Yoga class was so Hot! Didn't think I was going to make it through class!! My sweat towel was drenched & my hair was damp! Whew! That was a tough Vinyasa class!! It rained most of the night here & now it's still gray out & Humid. Might be another AC afternoon today. I made a large pot of chicken veggie Asian soup
with shiritaki noodles yesterday. Definitely used the AC cooking that up!! Will be eating on that for a few days. Maybe I'll drop a few lbs? Have to quit snacking on Crackers topped with Guava jam & eating dried mangoes!

Deb~You have definitely been eating high on da Hog sista! Checked out that Holy Grill video...Holy Guacamole! Did you end up having the Pacific or So. Beach Benny? Haven't had scallops in ages. Yum...on the crock roasting. How long are you going to be away?

I'm still eating on that soup I made. I did add potstickers to my bowl yesterday. Will add shrimp today. Scale still up here. Had multi grain crackers w/Hummus & sour pickles yesterday for Lunch w/a Beer. Scale isn't going to budge doing that & adding potstickers to my soup! DH is washing windows/screens right now. I don't do windows! I'm off to do some Hazels.

I was up late too!!! Should have checked inand we could have kept each other company

Had my sonohyterogram yesterday morning... I was nervous but thankfully I didn't feel any pain just uncomfortable. Good news no polyps or masses but my lining is seriously thickened. I believe the term is endometrial hyperplasia. So next step is a biopsy to rule out cancer and then I guess we decide how to proceed from there.

My husband has been battling c diff infection that has been recurring for YEARS. Even after the fecal transplant. It is very painful and debilitating and his doc in infectious disease wants him to try this procedure once more. We r praying this will FINALLY give him relief. They don't say "cured".

Anyway, now that I've over shared.. I wanted to claim a small victory. Today when anxiety and stress and depression wanting me to just hide under covers and eat junk...I said NO! Laced up my sneakers and worked out!

Now I will enjoy a coffee shake and some Netflix

Lisa~Good news that you have no uterine masses or polyps! Hope your cancer Bx comes out Negative! You will prolly need a uterine ablation for the endometrial hyperplasia. SS your DH has a bad infection. What? A fecal transplant?!!! Umm... Good for you saying NO to all the negative thoughts & getting some exercise in!

CJ~ To your Mom. Hope her UTI clears up soon! Bet she's glad she has such a loving/caring DD there for her! Did I miss something about LD? Is he ok? How's Gizzie?

Deb~I could virtually see you sipping coffee @ that marina. Did it just take one V-Soda to get you there?

Karen~How was your trip?

Misty~Whazup? Hope you & DH are ok?

Had a nice long walk on a nearby beach today. I like to walk along the edge of the ocean with my feet in the water. Ahhh...it just feels sooo wonderful! I went Monday too. Monday was the first day that I was able to walk on the beach since my toe fracture! My toe didn't hurt! But, it's a bit swollen still. Oh, well... Going to start walking that beach regularly. Like Lisa, I Just said NO to all my self-sabotage/negative thinking & avoided the Junk today! Hoping to repeat tomorrow...One day at a time! Rt?
