Wow April, you are the early bird! or late one! I'm so glad to hear that you have been OP for 5 days! congrats!
It is beautiful here again today! 50 degrees right now. I'm drinking my 2 cups of coffee all by myself. Fixing to go out on the porch after typing this. Then I'm gonna throw on a jogging suit and go vote and then walk around my 2 mile block.
I got to chat with LindaT for about an hour last night (9 til 10 my time) but we never saw anyone else. Maybe tonight???
Hope everybody has a blessed day!

Good morning! I was so exhausted yesterday after getting the stress test, I could hardly stay awake! I had to drive in myself since R was already in that city doing some testing. He met me at the institute and helped me get my electric cart out of the truck. He also came over afterwards to put it back in the truck.
Since I'm currently one shoed, it's difficult for me to maneuver. I had to walk to the truck in pouring rain with one foot in a sock, so I wrapped it in a plastic bag! Well, I can't differenciate cold with wetness and half way to the turck I discovered that I had lost my plastic! Fortunately, my sock is heavy wool so it wicked well and didn't feel wet at all. I blotted it with a rag and got the test done.
BTW, the specialist can't figure out why my heart goes into atrial fibrillation when it does! I don't wake quickly...usually I take a bit to wake. I'm not startled! Yet, for some reason it will go nuts between 4:00 and 6:00AM!

Tippy, what a mess trying to get to your tests yesterday! girl no wonder you were exhausted! I wish I could have been there to help you! I really do!
How are you feeling today?
I went and voted, came back and walked for 30 minutes, swept the garage and porches for 15 minutes, did handweights for 15 minutes and then 40 situps.
Now I have all my windows open (you don't get to do that much in Louisiana), have all my good smelling candles lit and smelling so good, have some wonderful contemporary praise & worship music playing (I dont like the boring stuff lol) and I am just having the best ole time all by myself!

What is your total loss now?
Sounds like we are all home today! I drove today.Went to the gas station and Walmart. Came home.took a pain pill and napped! Ha! Exciting...huh?
The pain is much less each day...still a bit awkward. I am planning on working 6 meetings before getting the stitches out Thurs.
I wrote pretty well.made a flip chart this morning. I think I will manage.
I shopped for a new cordless answering machine caller i.d. phone.....looked for about 1/2 hr..decided on one then changed my mind and didnt buy one.Want to shop around more.
Tippy....sorry you are having continued health problems........you are tough though! I hope they can figure out what is causing the problem.
I went to chat at 9 my time last ight and ask if Cathy had been there....they said no...............I will check tonight.

Today the weather has been totally stupid.One minute its raining the next its sunny.I took a nap today and I usually sleep with a fan on but its been so cold I had to turn it off.
I bought a new snack this morning.Orville Redenbachers Peanut Chocolate popcorn snack.I can have 6 of them for 1 point and I feel like I am eating a snickers bar when I eat them; thats how good they are. :s:
WTG leenie :cb: :cp:
Talk to yall later; have a great weekend and I will catch ya later.

Thanks kids :encore:
I really would honestly like to offer encouragement but today I don't have it in me. I haven't been doing well. I'm on the rag which means any thought of trying to exercise or eat sensibly has gone completely out the window... today I had some friends over and we decided that pasta with alfredo sauce and garlic cheese toast was a wonderful idea. Of course I didn't watch my portion sizes or anything... and it's been like that all week. Plus I've got the hormonal thing going on where I think everything is a *much* bigger deal than it is. (Today's lesson: do NOT wax your eyebrows when hormonal *and* upset!!)
I feel sad... I've felt sad for a week... and I'm ready for this to be over so I can move on and not feel sad and tired all the time. I'm sorry I'm a little black raincloud today. I just wanted to post *something* on 3FC somewhere so I could convince myself that I haven't completely abandoned hope and that someday I can do it. I just need to figure out how.

Just a quick hello....dd11 and I are heading out to the "Run for the Cure"...worked nights Friday so slept Saturday away...in the eve we went to the temple for a celebration on my husbands side.
I am determined to get in shape again.....will feel good to get out and walk 5 k....
Congrats on the weight loss Leens!
Cathy sounds like you are having a great weekend!
Cin glad to hear you are on the mend!
April good to see you!
Navi hang in there....we have all had more days like that then we would like to admit
Lynnie good job trying to stay on track...those bars sound good!
Tippy sounds like you had quite a struggle in the rain....hope the doc gets to the bottom of things....interesting how your heart is most affected at night........I will ask one of the ER docs about that....I know a lot of MI's happen early in the morning....something to do with our body rhythms....hope you are feeling 100% real soon!
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!

Good Morning Ladies. Hope everyone is having a great weekend or at least trying too.
Its pretty nice out this morning and last night I was watching the weather channel we are supposed to see the 70s again this week.YAY!!!!:D I am hoping to be able to put my tearose outside again for some fresh air.Its starting to lose its leaves:?:
10-05-2003, 01:47 PM
Navi, some times it feels good just to write things down, have you considered journaling here at 3fc's ? I know a few people that it helps ALOT! One good thing about feeling crapy today is that tomorrow is another day and it could leave yo as quickly as it came. I get out of wack during that TOM too. Hugs !!
Lizzzzzy and DD good luck on the walk, have fun :D
I'm gonna go check out Atkins and be back later........
10-05-2003, 02:29 PM
Leenie? what's going on over at atkins? what am I missing? lol
I'm just getting back from church. My guys are back and unpacked and I have about 6 loads of clothes to do *sigh* oh well, the break was nice and dad gummit - even worth it! :-)
My oldest ds is writing a paper that is due tomorrow in English, youngest ds is out in our woods looking for squirrels, and my dh is over at his parents house cleaning the squirrels they killed this morning and getting all the camping gear put up. I would imagine they will all be taking naps later this afternoon. I'd rather do just about anything other than take a nap - just not my thing. Oops the dryer is buzzing.

My weekend has been relatively good. :)
I lost 5 lbs and am very happy about that! :D
I ate out two times this weekend. Usually that's very very bad for me but I managed to order things that were not terrible. I had pecan crusted chicken salad at TGIF's and I got a broccoli, egg& cheese wrap at a diner this morning.
The downside was that I went to my step grandson's birthday party without having anything to eat for lunch.
I had 2 pieces of cake. :eek:
One problem with the weekend is that I don't know exactly how many calories/points I ate. I'm guessing but it's on the high side to be safe ...
It was a great party!
Tippy, hope the dr can figure out whatís going on with your heart going into a-fib. One dr once told me that a lot of people experience a-fib, many without even knowing it.
Leens, WTG! Another 2 lbs gone!
Navi, Iím hoping youíre feeling better.
10-05-2003, 10:22 PM
Cassie I saw that you posted that in journaling .I think its great you lost 5 lbs.Keep up the good work.:cb:
