Will try and be back everyday to check in. Going to just relax today it's been so hot and humid. Now I'm going to try and catch up on what's been going on. I missed everyone.
Glad you are back!! Hope you have time to keep checking in!!

I used to work nights and loved it. So after tonight I'm off for 8 . Can't wait !

WOE: My way mixing it low carb
Misty and Laura are back

Had a nice weekend at the lake. It was cool enough to sit out in the evening and after dark there was a firework show across the lake. It was too windy today to get out on the water tho.

I started my carb cycling today with high carb day. I'm not sure I made my goal of enough cabs but its more than I would usually have. Tomorrow and Tuesday will be meat and veg days. Low carb. Wed and Thurs. will be moderate and Sat high. I am going to try some real light weight training. Wish me luck.

Laura they almost flipped you off the table?

Misty. you are such a good friend. Keep us posted on how she is doing

Deb I'm not a humus fan. At least the couple I tried. The ingredients in this one sound good tho. Wish I could remember which ones I tried. Did you have a good day? Yucky all day?

Pat thank you? What are you up to?

Avy. Bucky how we're your weekends

Karen are you hanging in there? Did you get some some relaxation and ride something?

Jo where are you? And Lisa?

My weekend was good, lots of farmer markets and fresh veggies and meat. Have the test results back from my blood work, a few things are concerning. My fasting glucose is borderline, 7.0... could be something, could be nothing, but my mother and grandfather were both diabetic, and died from complications, so that's worrisome. One reason I started low carbing a year ago!

Also, My red blood count is high, and white blood count is high in my urine. And Urine Microscopic WBC is high. All those things combined could mean something, or mean, nothing too interesting lol. Who knows, making an appointment tomorrow to see what my doc has to say and follow up tests I'm sure.

Good news is low carb isn't going to give me a heart attack. Cholesterol is excellent, and everything else seems to be perfect too, although I think the ones that are out of whack above could be potentially scary enough!

Just a drive through I am crazy busy and going away tomorrow for a couple of days so I have a bunch of work to get through. Sounds like you mostly are doing well, I am never far Cheryl just spent the weekend outdoor in the sunshine and have been running around trying to get things done. Nice to see Misty and Laura back! Sorry about the scales Deb , Avy 7 is high for fasting but it might not be anything to worry about but I am sure they will keep an eye on it. I better get back at it waves to everyone!

No work at all today, just cleaning my own house, which really needs it. Men just don't know how to clean. DH has been on a search team for 2 days until dark looking for a young man that drown. So just me and Rocco. I so need the rest. Went for a long walk this morning and then back to the gym tomorrow.

Karen DH just bought another Harley, can't wait to ride it. I can't drive this one because my feet don't hit the ground, but I get his old one.

Laura I don't know how you survive working those long shifts, I just about dropped working 2 jobs, wtg.

Cheryl can't wait to hear how the carb cycling works. I think that is kinda what I've been doing. It seems like when I eat on the higher carb days I feel really full and enjoy the lower carb day.

Got to see my doctor today to follow up on those tests, I love living in BC. She was shocked with my blood sugars, and wants me to do the tests again this weekend, after 5 days of taking no supplements. Apparently Glucosamine can elevate your blood sugars? It's for help with arthritis pain...those tests came back negative, btw! \
So, I'll stop taking the vits for the week and redo the tests on Saturday morning. She's pretty sure there's nothing to worry about. the other numbers that came back flagged, she doesn't seem to think are anything, so we'll see. Still tired all the time, haven't been to the gym in over a week Will have to get back in there this week, atleast for a couple weight sessions and a couple yoga classes.

The RA test being negative reinforces my belief that my joint pain and inflammation (which btw is really bad today!) is food related. Glad I will be seeing an allergist too soon. I may go crazy and do a strict elimination diet, but bleh! Who wants to do that!?

Avy~Hmm...wonder what's up w/your Lab results?! Hope it isn't much of anything to worry about.

CJ~Hope the cycle carbing works out for you!

GJo~How was the train trip? Where are you off to now?

Not much happening around here. Waiting to drop @ least a lb. this week. Cool weather & on/off rain since yesterday. Still having sleep problems. Did take an Ambien the other nite & doubled up on the melatonin last night. Hoping to get some good sleep tonight.

Thanks! I hope so too. I've had RA since pregnancy when I was 22, developed during, terrible joint swelling and pain in certain fingers, then migrated around to toes, knees, elbows. It's just weird! I stopped taking prescription meds years ago because I was always in pain anyway, and living on the west coast actually seems to help.

The pain seems to go into remission in some joints, and pop up in others. My left jaw joint is really bad the last 6 months, sometimes my teeth don't touch on that side. And lately my left hip hurts but not every day, usually at night in bed, and from sitting too long at work.

Even the protein test for general inflammation in your body came back 4.2... has to be over 5 to be positive. Blargh.

Got out of work early, I'm so glad it's in the 90's and humid. I even finally made it back to the gym for great workout. Going for a nice long walk tonight. DH is on his 3rd with the rescue team, feel so bad for him in all this heat. Hope they find him today,so it's over.

Stress, Stress, Stress.
Looking at buying a building. DH isn't in favor of it at the price, so decisions, decisions, decisions.

The building does have location.......and size. Too big for what I need, but room to expand......

Deep breaths Karen. In and out slow and deep.

Do tell about your building. Sounds like it could be exciting.

Hot here. 90's heat index to 109 today. But a cool down is on the way. And it really hasn't felt too bad the last several days because we have had good breezes.

Worked yesterday then we ran to Lowes and SAMS after dinner.

Misty glad you had a day off. That's a long time to search for DH team.

Bucky you're not far off the Christmas promo being up soon

Pat I love me time.

Avy on dealing with RA. Hope you get answered to what's going on

Deb what's on for today?

Laura I would love to travel too. DH not so much
