Have fun with movie night, sweetie. It's late here so I'm only checking in briefly. Hugs to you and your DH. Have a lovely evening of snuggling together.

Susan ! thanks for stopping in ! Glad you are back

Yes, Debby , I felt good about my choice

Weight this am : got 3 readings ! Stupid scale

Got 141.0 - 142.0 - and 142.2 !

So I will go with 142.2 and see what tomorrow looks like

Going to chiro this morning. Have a sharp pain in my back in the rib area. Had DH pop my back last night Oh my ! Woke me up all night. Just a really sharp pain like a rib is out of place or something. Weird.

Kinda hate to go, cause they hound you on the phone wanting you to come in every few days and it is expensive !! I have spent a ton of money there this year !
But, in all fairness, they really really helped me

Going to thaw out shrimp and make Ruth Chris' BBQ shrimp recipe. It looks so good ! and jalapeno poppers

If my back is better, tonight I will drive an hour to my brother's to go to football game - my nephew is in the band. The one with MD - want to support him.

Really smart to sit in bleachers huh ? We'll see if I feel like it after I go to appt.

ttyl !

Back from chiro. She was a little testy that I don't come more often.

DH is asleep on couch, I'm really tired of him doing that ;/ I don't want to sleep my days off away...... how boring !

Back is better, but not sure how it will feel if I go sit in bleachers for 2 hrs tonight. ???? Might have to do that some other time. Waiting for shrimp to finish thawing so I can cook . I'm hungry !

Hope you are all having a great day ! It's 88 here and sunny ! Where's fall ?

Do you feel relief after DH pops your back? If not, maybe it's more muscular than structural. Strange that it is in such a specific area. Have you had an x-ray? You might have a small stress fracture in the rib way back there or something. In that case, you don't want anyone popping your back. If you go to a Chiro, I guess you already know what the problem is so why am I writing all this unwanted advice?

Yeah; bleachers sound deadly. You're going to really have to focus on your posture the whole time. Does it help to take hot, soaking baths? I took one the other night and I used Epsom Salt and some decadently smelly foaming stuff and it really made me feel good. The aches and discomforts I deal with daily were relieved for a little while. I highly recommend them.

(Shut up, Cheryl). Sorry. From one nurse to another, you know how hard it is to not try and fix someone. Have a great day.

lol ! It's ok ! I appreciate the concern. Nope no stress fx's - DH was just doing it cause it was in the evening and I was miserable

She did my adjustment and it's lots better, but I prob won't go to football game. I really did want to go though..... boo

Hot soaking baths are wonderful. I use epsom salts too ....... but I get so bored lol ! I guess I need music or something. It does feel great though !

made my jalapeno poppers and had leftover veggies ( sp. squash and green beans ) . Shrimp is thawed. Will prob make it later ..

ttyl !

OMG. I amaze myself. I was just on my journal, replying to what you wrote over there and I asked you what's happening in your world. I completely forgot the thing with your back and chiro, etc. Sometimes I wonder if I'm all there.

I used to love to have my back popped. My late husband taught me how to do it to him and then he'd in turn pop mine. (I hope that came out right.) I don't know anyone who can do that for me and I know that's all I need. I might be entitled to a chiro visit every now and then through medicare but I don't want to go through all that just to have my back popped. I need a little kid that is familiar with anatomy and physiology to just walk around on my back. Know where I can find me one of those?

I think I ate one a few years back ! lol ! That's how i explained it when I gained all that weight. I said "if someone's missing a 3 - 4 yr old, I ate him " haha !

I used to walk on my Dad's Best Friend's back when I was a kid. He loved it !

ONe of my girlfriend's has a slipped disk in her back, and she always comes to the friday night football games. She just sits on the very top row. Then, you have the fence, or better yet, back of the bleachers to support you. It's also extra exercise to climb to the top

yes, Greengeeny, that is what I usually do too, but I used to have a stadium seat with a back on it when I couldn't sit up high.
my problem today was when I stepped up with my right leg, I got a piercing pain in my rib area.!! Not sure I could have climbed the bleachers and then after driving all the way there, if I couldn't sit at the top I would have been stuck ;/

I will go in 2 weeks when I'm off again. No worries

Morning Laura! Sorry about your back . DH has frequent issues with his too -pinched nerve. He can roll over the wrong way and he's down for the count for several days! He does some floor exercises that help. I got him "The Bad Back Book" on-line that has helped him alot.

Thanks Susan. Still sore, but much better ! Might need to get that book.......

Going to see an old friend/co-worker that's in the nursing home. She had diabetes really bad for years. Went blind and lost both of her legs....... she's only like 10-15 yrs older than me. So sad.

Was using her prosthetics and going to Dr in assisted living van and fell and broke her hip. Hoping to cheer her up !

ttyl !

Laura, I hope you start feeling better. There is nothing worse than a painful back. Hopefully you will be okay at the football game. That Ruth Chris shrimp recipe sounds terrific --- I would love to make it. And Jalapeno poppers - yum! Do you make them low carb or just have them as a treat?

Good for you on your continued weight loss. You must look fantastic!

Laura, God bless you for putting a friend ahead of yourself today, even though you are in pain and going through your own trouble. I feel for your friend. My late husband was a diabetic and suffered blindness, kidney failure, and lost parts of both his legs before he passed. It's a terrible disease and it takes a person's life and liberty one piece at a time. Thank you for the kindness you are showing her today.

Laura, you are such a good person. Your friend is lucky to have you probably a better idea to go next time. There are still a few weeks left in the football season. Atleast until you feel more up to par. Hope you feel better soon.

Hi ladies !

Visit was good.... she only has a week or so and she will get to return to assisted living . She can't wait. I surprised her and picked up our old ER manager and brought her with me . Was good to see her too, she's a good friend of mine !

Connie was in good spirits. Took her a sonic drink. That's all she wanted.

I have made those poppers before for a super bowl party and EVERYBODY...even non lcers asked for the recipe. I love those little snacks Glad to see that your back is feeling better. I went to my son's game friday, and they got their booties kicked. It was a long game. My son pulled a muscle in his lower left calf and didn't play the second half of the game. He is okay, just sore today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Nice hair! I see on fb that it turned out real nice. You look good!

Glad you're able to get back on track. You probably didn't do much damage yesterday.

Glad to hear your back is better & your visit with your friend went well.

Debby - Thanks ! I put that pic out before I got my hair done It's from last year !! lol ! She did a pretty good job, it's not exactly like that - even though I showed her the pic and said that's what I want - but it's close enough !

Yeah, i don't feel bloated or miserable, will weigh in a few days.

Good plan, not weighing right away, as long as you can keep your resolve. I 'need' to weigh daily, otherwise it slips my mind, or it used to... Didn't have a problem with it while traveling, so maybe I've 'grow-up' But I take a tape-measure with me & use that + my jeans in the mirror... those lower waist-ed jeans are very precise when your wt. goes up! So, I guess I do 'kinda' weigh on trips too.

Did you get out for your walk today? It helps! Hope you enjoy your day.

No. Still hot and lots of mosquitos. Hoping tomorrow when it cools off some, the mosquitos will head out too.

I usually weigh every day too. Habit ! But, i will wait till tomorrow or next day and check weight then. Should be ok .

Hey, I didn't realize you had a diet center in the past ! Cool ! No wonder you know so much
