Greetings my dear Buddies:

Happy Wednesday - well, my Red Sox have lost two games in a row! Argh...but we are going to the final game in the series today and the sun is shining!

ADDENDUM: I did great food wise at all three games. No treats or extra carbs except Monday I had bread with the steak sandwich - but it all was included in the carb count for the day! No beer, no ice cream, no hot dogs! I eat the lettuce wrap sandwiches from Jimmy John's - tasty and low carb.

My body has been rebelling - between the prednisone and the antibiotic nasal spray - my stomach has been a mess! I also know prednisone can cause weight gain - so I am not likely to see a loss this week - fortunately I am back to the gym and feeling much better in the allergy department.

Words of the Week:
"You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face."

I am dedicated, determined and diligent.

Greetings Buddies!

Again, thank you to all who have served, serve or will serve in the Armed Forces protecting our countr

I am feeling better each day with the medication. In fact, I went to the gym yesterday and took a short walk in the rain today just to get my FitBit Steps in for the day! Although I have my settings low, the FitBit does make me move more especially on the days off from the gym.

The next three days my Boston Red Sox will be in town playing the Twins - so we will be at all three games! Praying the rain lets up for Memorial Day game in the afternoon.

I can bring food into the ballyard - so I will plan ahead and bring my own stuff to avoid eating off plan too much. I might have one treat only one time over the three games!

Words of the week:
"Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself."

I am dedicated, determined and diligent.

Happy Holiday weekend, Buddies:

First - blessings to all who served, serve, or will serve our country in the armed forces that protect our democracy.

Second (RANT COMING) - I was like a babbling baby yesterday at the ENT doctor while I tried to describe my two week horror show of inflamed sinuses, completely blocked nasal passages, and post nasal drip! He said it was "most severe" and no wonder I could not breathe!

I got two nasal sprays prescribed - but when we went to the pharmacy, they could only provide one of them and the other takes three days to arrive!

Whaattt??? My husband came with me and we were both irritated! So, I went back to the urgent care clinic and saw a different doctor and essentially begged for prednisone for 10 days! Historically, it is the only thing that has worked when I have allergic responses this bad.

So we got to the pharmacy and THEY say the prescription makes no sense to them. The doctor prescribed the prednisone in a slow tapering dose over a ten day period! Whaaattt??? My dear husband rushed back to the clinic to get the doctor to re-write the prescription so the pharmacist could fill it.

This took from 2:00pm until 8:00pm last night! I am praying for some relief in the next couple days!

Words of the week:
"Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself."

I am dedicated, determined and diligent.
