Ahhh those sweet 99 days of summer,, well in Maine anyways as far as HOPING the temps are out of the low 60s, but NOT higher we HOPE than 89 ! WHen it hits above 90,, we simply melt like a snowflake in the spring!
Living in Maine affords us MANY things to do and eat. Maine definitely is a wonderful play to find out door activities and a SLEW of places to eat !! Our state motto: Vacation Land.
I'm FINALLY OUT of the cast ! YEAH ! YEAH ! YEAH !!! I can walk for approx 10 mins. I am being very compliant so i do the BEST by the foot. I did see the wound clinic this week,,,it however does like the wound is going to break back open. If this happens, all that can be done, has been done and it'll mean moving onto the next step of removing the big toe on the left foot. This will lead to more and more of the foot/leg being removed over time from new wounds opening up and not healing well. You get handed in life whatever comes ur way. I am a strong believer in the Bible (if you are not, I more than understand that, and most of all respect it !) in 1 Corinthians 10:13 it tells that God (From the research I did online ,, have come to believe he has a name of Jehovah (Psalms 83:18 in most bibles, or if read on the preface it often says why no name is given to God, often having to do with we don't know the actual pronunciation of) will not give us more to handle than we can. Some of us go through a LOT more than others,,, or is that really true? From anyone I've talked to, i'd NOT want to change lives with them. I KNOW Whatever happens ,, will happen and i will be able to handle it. In the past I had been severely depressed, and NEVAH EVAH want to go back to that !! I need to think positively !
To LOSE my 5% which will be approximately 11ish pounds. I DID lose the 12.? in the Wintah challenge and in the spring challenge I DID lose the 11.9 lbs !! YEAH YEAH YEAH !! I BARELY made the Spring one,,,, it was HARD ! So I NEED to Stay FOCUSED !! That's the HARDESt part for me,, so yes its a GOAL !
I know I need to stick to the 1200 cals diet I have worked on with my dietitian. I NEED to keep up and even IMPROVE on my veggie eating,,, I AM FINALLY eating some though,, just want over the summer to IMPROVE on this ! Will work on my snack as being such as well as dinner and breakfast (or it can be fruit for breakfast). My personal goal is to have 3 a day,, WAY UP From NONE !
If I go through surgery (Highly likely) than my dietitian and I have talked about bringing my cals down to 1,000, but i HAVE to have them as HEALTHY FOODS !! Right now I DO allow small bits of candy,, a VAST improvement from the days of opening a bag of butterfingers, and eating the entire bag in a sitting,, a
To exercise 60 to 90 mins 7 days a week with walking or using my knee walker if Dr's wont allow regular walking. I NEED to start with ST !!! I have PLENTY of exercise equipment I KNOW Is FUN to do ! it's just remembering to do it !
To eat 3 to 4 servings of veggies a day. KNOCK OUT the candy down to 2 pieces a day (hard candy,, small little pieces). Keep protein between 60 to 70 gms. If going through surgery,, than the 70gms. I LIKE the AES (I think that right !) protein drinks. It's already made (I ougtha look to see if it comes in powder,, for it's getting expensive especially if I need 2 a day. That'll add up to 80 to 90 $$$ a month,, it's doable, but if I don't have to,, yeah.
I am a very stubborn person so when it comes to making a goal,, I PLAN ON SEEING IT THROUGH !! I am a very kind person so please don't allow that word "STUBBORN" bother you its only against myself.
I am OWNED by Izzy Ma Gizzy as MaryAnnGi) calls her,, she's a brown tiger kitty cat who had belonged to some SPARKS Pet groups, but yeah she's DROPPED most of the weight and I WANT both my tablet (of which she is TRAINED to know when she hears the BEEP of it turning on to COME so she can play the Mousey game. The mice run across the screen she goes BERZERK to catch them !!
I do have some grandkids, but they are now grown so they aren't around as they were when they were teens and had more feedom. My house was the gathering place,, I LOVED It of course, but yeah the little snicker dooo doo's DO grow up !! It's FUN thoough to text them. I NEED to text the older 2 to come and fix 2 chairs I own.
I am very fortunate to be the ML (Motivational Leader) for the Spirited Under Dog team (A part of the 5% Community Team) ,, AkA "Dawggies" of when the new ones are coming on are referred to as PUPPIES !! Aww so fresh and new,, so FULL of enthusiasm that I GET SOO EXCITED I MAY leave little spots where they DO NOT belong ! if you have read this far on my page,, please mention that,,, and I;ll send you a goODIE !
Did you happen to notice,, I wrote A LOT about the cat,,, and only a little bit about the Grandkids? LOL they know this !! LOL !! They are used to it. Though they know I LOVOUS them with ALL I have !

Hello Diane with the nice hair. Thank you for visiting my page and leaving your lovely comments. I had to chuckle when you mentioned that you use a dye, that it is a beautiful red, . . . it reminded me of another story you might (or might not) find amusing. I used to color my hair. Almost always because someone else wanted me to or did it for me (the first time). One day I switched brands, hoping for something a little more vibrant. I still stuck to red but this was a bit more burgundy than my usual red. As I was exiting the elevator on my floor one of my neighbors from down the hall was waiting to get on. She stopped mid-step, looked at me and asked, "What the hell did you do??" Oops, I thought, too much vibrancy! That was the last time I ever colored my hair. Definitely not a NSV. But I really don't miss it.
