Laura, where do you get your Chia seeds? I really want to try them! Do you put them in a full glass of water and then drink the water? If you get a chance, please tell me how it works. Hope you are having a great Sunday!

Sorry Gail, I think I will have to ask DH where I found them because we were out shopping and I finally spotted them. I can't remember what store it was though..... maybe he will remember !

Finally off...... really tough week ;( . Haven't been this tired in a long time !!
Slept from 2-11 and then went back to bed from 1pm - 4pm !! Boy, hope I can sleep tonight !

Doing laundry and watching TV...... that's about all I'm gonna do till tomorrow. I never waste my 1st day off, but I am today !

Hope you all are doing well. ttyl !

Enjoy your days off! I really love catching up on stuff when I get time off... hard to get time for that, with all the trips we take though!

Forgot I haven't updated you guys on my back.
I saw my Dr one day and had my xray done. ER Doc looked at it for me and said it looks "rough" around L4-L5 where I had my surgery done and maybe the rough edges were pressing on a nerve.

Had my MRI last week :
L2
L3
L4
L5
S1

!st 4 have tears and bulging discs
last has bulging also and tear with a narrowed foramen on left --- ?? Not sure what that means, but I think my back is worse than when I had my surgery in 99 and 2000 !!

Man, I hope there is some outpatient procedure that can fix it !

Will let y'all know what I find out !

Oh man! That sounds bad Laura! Hope you can get relief.

Passwords... have been frustrating me a lot too... since I went on the trip, had to change many of them, as I couldn't remember... now all my other PC's have to be changed too... then it starts all over!

Bit the bullet and ordered myself the Kitchen Aide stand mixer and the Cuisinart food processor !!!

Outrageously expensive !! I will use them forever so I'm justifying it . As much as I cook , I think that it will be wonderful. ( I had a cheap food processor that was a piece of crap....only used it a few times and sold it in a garage sale )

Can't wait till they get here ! WooHoo !

How fun for you. I'm using my food processor a lot more now, especially for chopping up my almonds. The Kitchen aide is very good, I have one, but don't use it as much as you would ... does a good job on mixing up my cereal.

Yay! Glad you got your kitchenaide... & cruise reservations.
Yep, you're nuts - painting in that heat. Surprised there's any mosquitos left... they die off in the heat, don't they?

Have a blessed work week!

My back was really sore yesterday and now it is "out". Hurts to sit, walk , or move !! Had to call in to work ( i'm sure they are pissed )

Will be so glad when I find out if they can fix it ! Sitting with heating pad. Took muscle relaxer and motrin.

Prayers appreciated. I HAVE to go to work tomorrow ! This is my 3 day week ;/

Thanks Debby

Missed work again today. Was up till after 5am - couldn't lay down, couldn't sit up ....everything made my back hurt ;/

Finally broke down and went to the Chiropractor !! I was scared to death. I have NEVER let anyone "pop" my back ~~ too scared it would mess it up worse.

I took my xrays and MRI results. She said she can't believe how bad my back is aligned and also found trouble with my neck ( headaches ) and my mid back ! She was amazing.

I explained how afraid I was of having an alignment and she hooked me up to a computer that "taps" down each vertebrae and aligns it like that It felt sooooooo much better after that ! Then I had some traction with a pelvic belt and the "tens" unit ~~~ it is so much better.

I go back tomorrow for the traction and tens again and then see the Dr. on Monday ~ haven't decided if we'll do the alignment or the computer again.

So glad I went. Hope I sleep better tonight. Just drank some chia seeds with a large glass of water....been really bloated lately . ( not eating good of course )

Hope you all had a good day ! DS1 is here - working 3 day shifts. Babysat DS2's puppy and they just picked her up. This is the weekend I took off so now I still have 11 days off and hopefully my back won't mess them up

That's great that the chiro helped! Good thing you were brave enough to give it a try. So many people swear by them. It would sure be great if its the answer for your back & head-ache troubles.

Hope you have an awesome 11 days off. I get the next 3 days off. Happy about that. Not telling anyone about tomorrow... I am going to seclude myself & get the books done (or started).

That's great that you have a long weekend Debby ! Yay ! I wouldn't tell anyone either if I were you .
DS2 's GF came over today - you know they moved back here - and when she left she said I'll see ya tomorrow ! haha She is not working at the moment and her college classes don't start till end of August so she's bored. Good thing we like each other so much ! lol

Had my therapy today - kinda sore from it. But, soooooo much better than I was. Got groceries and my food processor is here !! woohoo !!
Can't wait to make LC carrot cake and LC zucchini bread with my 2 new toys ! : ) Am I weird or what ? lol

Made sausage/cabbage for supper and have beef short ribs in crockpot - started a new thread asking for LC sauces I can put on them > Do any of you have any ideas for one that is yummy and LC ?

Raining off and on here with a "cell" headed our way that they say has hail in it ~~ gotta go get my vehicle in the garage !

TTYL !

Cool. Glad the treatments are helping.
I worked for 6 hours on the books & filed
My favorite lately for everything... Lighthouse Ranch/Jalepeno with extra Franks red hot sauce added. I eat my cooked veggies cold with my meat chopped up in it, with it.
Hope your friend enjoys the activities you have planned for your day.

That sounds good Deb except for the cold cooked veggies ?? Don't know if I could do that !

Yeah, she is trying to learn how to cook, so she'll be good with watching me make the cake/bread and then we plan to watch the movie Safe Haven . Should be fun

Well, had a headache this morning .....maybe from the therapy yesterday ? I'm pretty sore, but not like my back is out. Just sore from the rollers going from my neck to my bu** over and over I think.

Ended up watching Safe Haven with Shane's GF - it was really good.
Then made a huge mess in the kitchen making hamb steaks, mashed potatoes ( for the guys, not me) and steamed broccoli and tea.

DS1 is going home tonight to see DIL and Shelby before he starts back to work on Tues. They have been in Austin for a week and came home today.

May make my carrot cake or zucchini bread tonight ...... I tried out my mixer on the mashed taters and I LOVE it !

Hope to get out of the house tomorrow with DS2's GF -- DH and DS2 are working so we could have a girls day out !! yipppeeee !!!

Hope you all have had a great day too !

Yeah, DH says I'm the only person that eats the way I do. I do love my cold veggie salads.
Great that you felt good enough to walk Allie yesterday.
Hope your headache calms down again. Sounds like you're enjoying your time off.

Went to bed at 4:30 am Just couldn't get sleepy

Got up about 10:45 and I'm sitting here drinking coffee and playing on LCF.

no rain today ! Bet it's gonna be really humid after all that rain .We sure needed it

Made that zucchini bread last night and doubled the recipe. Figured if I'm gonna make a mess and have all those dishes I would make extra. Ate one small piece and put one small piece in fridge.
Froze all the rest of the 2 loaves. I cut up about 15 slices - wrapped each individually in foil and put in a freezer zip lock. Done !! Snacks or breakfast when i need it

DH is now off with me for 8 days. I haven't left the house since Wed when I hurt my back except to go to chiro. !! I'm ready to get out of the house
I really get bored so easily ........

have a great day everyone !

Still working to get extra weight off
I ate carbs for a few weeks and really really need to stay LC for my weight AND my health. Don't know why I do this when I know I can make lots of yummy LC foods.......

Anyway, I have added psyllium husks to my daily routine last few days and (TMI ) it's not working......bloated and "full" FOS

The chia seeds work wonderfully, but when they "work" you better be near a restroom ! So I may need to drink some chia water later today.

Not going to change my avi weight unless I don't keep dropping. Down over 2 lbs this week so far........

Went to chiro after dentist and I let her "pop" my mid back and neck ! You should have heard my neck !! It sounded like she shuffled a deck of cards ~~ scared me to death :0 But, It didn't hurt ! Feels much better now......

DH went also and we need to run to our hosp and get his xrays done before she can do much ...... we may go tonight or tomorrow morning.

While we were in town, we went to the steak house and I had a big ole' Ribeye and grilled shrimp with green beans. Salad too...... It was yum.........
