Got my water bottles here at work, ready to go today... also, got my packed lunch of a turkey sandwich! It's going to be a long day, I can tell. My area boss will be here, so I probably will be scarce until late this afternoon.
Hope you all have a good day! Let's all stay positive and feel good about ourselves today!
Karen... those sounded like some good drugs... I have to go to work... got any extra? ROFL!! I'm glad to hear that you're OK. You'll be feeling back to normal in no time. Take care of yourself and drink lots of water.
Asparagus... how was the first night with puppy?
Joan... I didn't think it was an ulcer until yesterday. Two weeks ago while having an argument with DH, I was doubled over in pain and just thought I was upset. Then I noticed that it happened again and I thought I had heartburn. Then I thought one day that I was having horrible hunger pains but I had just eaten an hour before. So I looked it up and here's what it said the symptoms of a stomach ulcer could feel like:
Stomach Ulcer symptoms
The major symptom of an ulcer is a burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach area that lasts between 30 minutes and 3 hours. This pain is often interpreted as heartburn, indigestion or hunger. The pain usually occurs in the upper abdomen, but sometimes it may occur below the breastbone. In some individuals the pain occurs immediately after eating. In other individuals, the pain may not occur until hours after eating. The pain frequently awakens the person at night. Weeks of pain may be followed by weeks of not having pain. Pain can be relieved by drinking milk, eating, resting, or taking antacids.
That was taken from a health website mamashealth.com. I'm not waking up at night but the pain is exactly where they say, high in the abdomen like heartburn.
Right now I feel OK... it seems to happen when I'm stressing...
Been busy here let me tell ya! Got Luke all packed and sent of to predeployment training, he should be home on the weekends, can't wait! My youngest had her first round of tests today, she is three and still cannot speak. They want even more tests, so for now I am to teach her sign language so she can communicate. Got the final stuff for the older one done, so she can start school, I have been homeschooling her. Got tons of stuff around the house done too!
I have been so busy I haven't had time to snack or make huge unhealty meals. I peaked at the scale this morning, and I have dropped another pound, but I won't mark it until Saturday, in case.
I picked up a walking mag and it has a 12 week walking schedule, but since I can't get any real walking in with the girls and all, I am going to follow it on my bike, and see if that does anything for my weight loss.
We had a great supper last night. We had smoked cuban tofu and it was sooo good!
Morning all. Got to work late today - just did not want to get out of bed. I am suffering from allergies something fierce. I am going to try to hit the gym today but not sure how well I will do.
Kati - Good luck with the tests. My cousin did the same, I think it is a common thing when there are older kids. But good to get her tested anyway.
Poppy - Ugh - a stomach ulcer does not sound good. What will you do if they keep coming back? Bob is doing really good at night but we will see how she does alone for 8 hours. I am a little worried... I may go check on her at lunch but that means I would have to stay here even longer.
Trying to keep it simple today. Just the usuall... laundry, some cleaning and ... going to bake. Hoping the kiddies take a nap as I have an important call to make and we all know what happens when it is important... Kiddies follow mommy around talking to her, making noises etc.
Christina --- No, I haven't taken the kiddies yet... mine are the same age.
Kati--- on the lost pound!!!
Gatorgal --- I was the same was last week about getting my bum in gear. I finally got it back in gear. Hoping you can too- soon.
poppy --- Ulcer!! Ack, never had one, but my dh did and they are painful hoping you figure things out and are feeling better again- real soon.
Well off to the gym I go.... talk to you all later...
