    Good morning, ITS MONDAY

    Lynn wow you are posting early. Start your small habits first.

    I may have to start posting later in the day as I have to start working at work starting tomorrow. My company is "flying by the seat of their pants" as well when it comes to accommodating us for for COVID. At the moment I am the only one there so not a problem but wow we have a lot of policies but not a lot of reality.

    Scale is up. Late night salty snacking will do that.

    I woke up middle of the night and my patio decorations were still on (one has a blower) so I fixed the timer again.

    So much fun and so little time (sarcasm).

    Wave to all who follow. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning Lynn and Sara~~

    BBee, I have to tell you that one of the first things I thought of this morning was "discipline"!
    Just the thought of it has some power. 😁

    Waving to everyone who stops by later on - lots to do today before the scary dental appointment at 3PM.

    got call yesterday that HPCON level raised at work. we are back to teleworking. of course, i was teleworking this week anyway because of my medical procedure. had a Covid test done yesterday and am still feeling it. i swear the guy drilled that swab into my brain. had a bit of a bloody nose and lots of stinging. my daughter said hers was nothing like that. wonder if i just got the mean/clumsy/doesn't know his own strength guy.
    i was not able to go to 2 fall parties with different Jeep clubs this weekend. i guess one went well, the other not so well. there were at least 12 families that didn't make it due to Covid &/or quarantining. there was a LOT of food for those who did make it though. there were not enough voting members there for a quorum so they scheduled a special meeting on Sunday to vote for new officers. i am still stuck as secretary until next year.
    this weekend, i have not been staying on track for eating. was way over calorie budget. and the scale has been quick to remind me too! :s

    oh, for those that don't know, I better explain HPCON - that is a military acronym for Health Protection Conditions.
    I am used to throwing around acronyms like that and sometimes forget not everyone knows what they are. just remind me to explain if i do that again....
  • Tilliesmommy1Tilliesmommy1 Member Posts: 4,305 Member Member Posts: 4,305 Member
    Kathryn you throw those acronyms around all you want - we need to learn new things. Some medical techs dont like their jobs and take it out on the patients. Sorry you got mr. cranky pants. Curl up in soft blanket or a nice robe. It has finally gotten cold enough to wear light/med jackets. Hot chocolate is also a kindness.....
  • LanaCabana537LanaCabana537 Member Posts: 2,536 Member Member Posts: 2,536 Member

    Oy, Kathryn - Sara is right: you got mr. cranky pants!

    And definitely throw around as many acronyms as you want. I like to learn new stuff 😁

    Good evening,

    Monster spent most of her day in her cave with the door shut. I had ear phones and listened to music as much as possible. Big huge cleansing breath.......

    Came home and passed out I have 6k today on my step counter. Tomorrow is half day as I have an apt early afternoon.

    Also like the photo BordeauxBee.

    Hope your checkup went well Lana.

    Wave to all who stop by. Wishing all a great evening.

    Good morning BordeauxBee - Thanks for getting us going today~

    I got my blood test results from seeing cardiologist. The bad news is the triglycerides and A1C are up. The good news is that the two tests for liver are down significantly, now in the middle of normal. Whew.

    Going forward my plan is to look at carb percentages first. Won't be as concerned about fat or number of calories to start.....

    Today is travel day for me; going back down to NC this afternoon.

    Waving to everyone who stops by today.

    Good morning Lana

    Happy to hear about your progress with your a1c and triglycerides. It can all feel like such a slippery slope when trying to keep these levels within healthy measure.

    Wishing you safe travels.

    Enjoy your day SS’s

    Good morning!
    Lana - can I ask? Did you do anything for your liver numbers? My DH's were high 6 months ago - so they took him off of his cholesterol meds. Now they are even higher! NOT a drinker. At all. I am :wink: Doing ultrasound next week. A bit worried, but hopefully we can do something about diet to help.
    Morning Bbee!
    Morning Sara!

    Afternoon Brennerjlb 🌹🌻

    Well wishes on your ultrasound appointment. You know we can’t forget medications can also cause fluctuation in our weight, and bloodwork. We can only do our best.

    With that being said. My hormones are throwing a tantrum. I totally just binged on chips 6ozs, two of those cupcakes with the white swirl icing down the middle and a can of Pepsi. I did walk to pick up the contraband. Yup, I am hoping that counts for something 🙃🙃. Full of guilt. My cravings aren’t completely filled. So, it wasn’t worth it. Ugh...

    -BordeauxBee

    Bbee- darn hormones! Wipe away the guilt - learn from the "mistake" own it and move on. One day at at time! You got this!

    Good afternoon, Just.

    Have an apt this afternoon, so phooey on Monster I took after lunch off for the rest of the day.

    Debating about a nap before or after apt.

    Found a mobile home listed at $14.500 and will see about getting an apt to look at it. We shall see what we shall see.

    Hang in there and dont be hard on yourself. This weight thing is a process.... sadly.

    Lana did your dr give you any kind of dietary info on your test result #s??

    BBL.
