Good morning!
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...

Hope everyone has a fab day!!!! :)

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!

Gotta run, have a great day folks!

Kati... hope all goes well with the tests today. My nephew didn't speak until he was 4 but he's almost 6 now and won't shut up!! LOL

I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you!!

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.

Mornin' Ladies! :doh:

Trying to keep it simple today. Just the usuall... laundry, some cleaning and ... going to bake. Hoping the kiddies take a nap :crossed: 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. :tantrum:

Christina --- No, I haven't taken the kiddies yet... mine are the same age.

Kati--- :bravo: 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. :hug:


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. :hug:

Well off to the gym I go.... talk to you all later...

Hey poppy, hope you feel better soon! I've never had an ulcer, but I did have an infected gallbladder and I know how much pain I was in then. I'll keep you in my thoughts!

hi everyone!
I have been busy here, had to take the little dude to the vet he was very itchy so took him in, he is allergic to flea bites, so he is on antibiotic and anti flea meds. as well as the other dudes!

Yesterday I spent a lot of the day baking, I bake this "mexican" cookies and we all love them, I found on facebook people I went to school with from elementary till graduation, and I offered a couple of them to send them a box of these cookies, so I have to finish them today.
For those of you that are on facebook go on my firends photos and you can see a class picture, I sent it to a friend and then she posted it on facebook and tagged it, with all our names I can't believe that can be done, that is so cool! but you can see me on that picture! back when! I am the second girl from left to right on the top.
I got to go finish the cookies!
see you all later!

Sass, you look great! Congrats!

happy, try Comfortis, it seems to be a miracle worker for fleas, and for dogs that have sensitive skin, it is a pill.

Anyone know what's the recommended amount of steps you should take in a day?

I think it is 10,000 steps.

Sass - great pics and great progress.

Still at work bored, bored, bored. I am not going to make it to the gym - these allergies are bad.

Part of me doesn't want to go home, eat and then work out, but I know I HAVE to. The only thing that's really going to motivate me tonight is the BL is on! :)

Maybe the chance to win money when you work out might motivate you too?

I just found this site... http://www.milliondollarbody.com/index.htm

They have a new winner ever day!! Sign up for Team Beachbody (it's free) and log you're live workouts and you can win money just for working out!!

I did one workout so far since I joined and it was easy. Just make sure to read the FAQ's on the contests.

RangerChic

poppy, the site doesn't look free... talks about charges. Is that just an additional thing or what? Do you know?

poppyseeds
10-07-2008, 06:53 PM
There is the main site that you can win money on (the link I gave you) and there is another optional site called Team Beachbody Club that is like $2.99 a month or something like that. So anytime you see the word 'club' that's the pay site.

I only joined the free one. Also, notice that only real time workouts (you hit 'start your workout' and then work out) are eligible to win. Manually entered workouts aren't.

I had fun with it. :)

I am home now making chicken noodle soup - kinda silly cause I think it is 90 degrees here. But I need some comfort food. I made a Dr's appt for tomorrow - think I am getting a sinus infection. :(

Hi, Ladies!
I have been working like crazy. I am an on-call substitute at the school board, and I have done 2 double shifts this week. 8-12 at one school and 1-6 at another. Plus helping the Hubs in the garage putting up the walls and insulating. Now laundry, dishes...?? Oh, yeah, jogging tomorrow, definitely! I can hardly wait! What do I say if husband says, but I need you to help me, or there's so much to do? Why are you going jogging AGAIN? (I only go a couple of times a week, and winter's coming!)
He is actually going to a wake this evening, so I am home with DD and trying to get some cleaning done. Talk to you all tomorrow!

Hi poppyseeds,

I was just reading your post that you think you may have an ulcer - I had a gallbladder attack a few years back and the pain was just as you described. To me it felt like a hot knife stabbing in my upper stomach. The pain would last a couple of hours and then magically go away sometimes for weeks other times months. I dealt with it for about a year until my gallbladder exploded and needed emergency surgery - not fun. Anyway thought i might throw that idea out to you - it may not be as severe as an ulcer. Hope this is helpful and not a bother.
PS - when this happened I had just lost 20 lbs and was in the best shape of my young life - the doctor said that the common person to have gall stone issues was middle aged - overweight and female. Good luck and feel better

Wow, I was in good shape too when my gallbladder got me sick! I was 150 pounds and eating well, except for one Saturday when I decided to do a "girls day in" with my best bud and eat pizza, junk food and watch movies. The next day, I started having pain and bloating. My day of fun triggered the problem I guess. Two months later, I got rid of the gallbladder, but haven't been in that good a shape since. Working on that now though. :)

Hi guys,

Busy like crazy today! And for the rest of the week too. Boy, I didn't get a chance to rest from the surgery. Luckily I only had a little crampyness from the procedure that was gone before I left the recovery room. My neck, on the other hand, hurts like heck. :)

Hope you are all having a great week so far!

Sass--- Looking good! Looking good. Keep up the good work. :cheer3:

Karen ---- I must of missed a post or two, (add to it my being MIA and absent minded lately), so don't know all that is going on. BUT did want to offer you a HUG :hug: Hope the rest of the week is gentler on you. :hug:

Kofarq--- Enjoy your jog tomorrow. How far do you usually jog? Have you ever measured it?

Well the kiddies didn't nap today, but my phone call still occured. Good thing I got them sitting down with lunch and a movie. All went well. :D
Made some cookies and brownies too---- and didn't over indulge in them either. One small brownie and cookie. :dust:

Well off to finish up a few more things before I turn in for the night.
Tata ladies. :chockiss:

callmemom... WOW! Thanks for the informaion. I had no idea that it could be my gallbladder or gallstones. I'm still having some discomfort here and there and it really acts up when I am stressed.

I'm sorry I didn't see your post earlier (didn't mean to be rude by not responding)... my notification of new posts never got to my email and I've been sick the past two days with a severe sore throat.

Weird though... I just lost 19 pounds and was feeling amazing... is this a conspiracy?? LOL

Thanks again...

Yeah, she is right, I sort of thought of it (since I had the same problem in 2001), but didn't think to say anything. Good luck with getting whatever is giving you problems fixed soon poppy! Feel better.
