Want info Blendtec or vitamix....

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I did see the video that is around of ninja, blendtec, and vitamix. and right now I am onto a blendtec. I have a ninja and still get tiny bits of spinach and also pomegranate seends don't blend in it. My daughter has a blendtec and loves it. but what else do you use it for.

I would love lots of input on eithr, and what you do besides smoothies. it is very very $$$ but I have the money for something for me, I changed my mind on tablet and thinking a blender so I can put more greens in my smoothies. I don't put a lot in now cos it doesn't get them totally mixed. More greens vs fruit is a good thing.

    We are trying to choose a blender too. We need one that will grind hard food like chinchilla pellets.

  I love vitaminx. I had one for over 8 years. I traded it and got a new one which I have for over 10 years. It works just fine so I have no excuse to get the newest one. I highly recommend vitaminx.

Wednesday evening

What an awesome late summer we are having. Such great weather, it may rain tomorrow, but hasn't in while, may rain overnight, 2 diff forecasts. Oh well I will deal with whatever it is, doesn't really matter, Allie has to go out anyway lol Just I ache and walk slower.

Doing well with my food, and exercise. I am actually enjoying my strength training days and even just my leg stretches and knee strengthening ones. I just wish I would lose wt, I am not feeling my clothes any loser either. I am eating all natural, only what I am supposed to be and very healthy proper portions. I am amazed at how well I am doing, so the wt or inches will come off, hopefully I can be patient enough!

Dr appointment on Friday, they called to day for confirmation. Said yes mine at 9 hubby at 4. she said Oh yea thanks now I don't have to call him lol

sad news, my phsyio had told me about a great program at the pool behind our house, in the warm pool. arthritis maintenance exercises by a physio. Well she moved, and they can't find anyone else to do it. So no classes, and man I was so looking forward to that, it was only 1 hr Monday eve, and only 2$. sigh... I am going to mention to my physio when I go in Sept that they can't have it cos no phsyio came fwd to help. Maybe she will lol x fingers.

Dads new mattress comes tomorrow between 8 and 1. so not too bad, we are usually home around then anyway. Then hubby is going to get his sisters break pads and re do her breaks for her. We have her car here while she is away at her daughters wedding. So a few things. Tomorrow is dd and hubbys 4th anniversary. He is working till 6 so not too bad. she was glad as he was working days and then doing a 2nd job that eve but they didn't schedule him. She said good, now I don't have to get my parents to take pity on my being alone on our anniversary! LOL

Well off to bed, going to read and hope I sleep well. Warmer tonight than last but still not too bad.
Have a great night all. Hope you did your best today!

    I'm so proud of you for staying on plan so well! You will reap benefits for this. That's a shame about the pool. I would have liked that too. Maybe they will find someone else to do it.

Happy anniversary to your daughter!!

    Sounds good, SPFriend! Sorry about the therapist and pool thing not happening. It is not fun when looking forward to something and it not materializing. Don't get discouraged about the wtloss thing; I know 'bout that too. Takes time and persistence.

Monday 25th going to make it a great day

Monday, August 25, 2014

So yea I live with pain, okay well you do learn to live with and around it for the most part.
Today and the next few days are supposed to be great weather wise, so I am going to hopefully take advantage of regular pain days.
Had a great evening Sat. did well on the eating, but drank a bit more than planned. Oh well I never get to drink, as I am always the designated driver. And lol we don't drink very often. Before Dd started making wine I may go through 2 bottles a year. Now I pay her for a few and they last me. Hubby may have a beer or 2 but Sat eve we all had a blast. The kids brought over a game, and we played till 1 in the morning. They all walked home and we did a bit of a tidy then went to bed.
Sunday I chose as well as I could at the restaurant and gave hubby some of my food. So all in all a great weekend, nothing to beat myself up about. This Sat is an engagement party for my nephew and that is more of an issue for me. I tend to gravitate to the sweets, and also stress cos never feel totally at ease when that one sil is around. Oh well going with the attitude that I am as good as any of them, I have what I want and will be taking care of my body and mind! I am hoping both my kids go for while, as they don't see family that often.

So today, Eating my breakfast which I will then chart and figure with my Health First plan. Think I will go buy the book. Not that costly and it is true it is mostly portion control rather than being totally restrictive. I can do this plan, even if I do find I want just 1 more portion of starches. that would make it much easier just 4 a day lol But 3 is doable, especially where I am not a potato lover, have my meat and a salad at supper.

Okay off to get my walk done. I only did 1 walk yesterday, the one with hubby. I was very tired from no sleep Friday eve and then sat staying up and drinking. I felt fine just very tired. So today off for my morning walk with out miss allie, we have already done that walk. Hubby still walking with me which I treasure and am so happy about.

Have a great day, do the best you can for your health, mental and physical! HUGS

    Sounds like we have similar lives. Love the game nights with the kids... and glass or two of wine. I GET the pain and agreed... just have to keep going. I hit a wall though when after doing DDR with my daughter and a bit of gardening I went to do the step into my house and my knee would not let me do it. I went to my family doctor when it did not get better with ice and rest and he did Xrays and said he thought it was a fracture of the tibial plateau. I had cancelled my knee replacment the year before because with my other knee replacement and all my walking, losing weight, and water exercises it was manageable pain. I wanted to squeeze out a little bit more time so the second replacement would last longer. A break... kind of scary.... But at the hospital they did not see what my famly doctor did (ne Xrays)...and said I either tore the meniscus or ACL or have a small fracture of the tibia. It is damaged - for sure... The Xrays were inconclusive so usually they would do an MRI... except they said that it was not worth doing an MRI or repair... because I need a knee replacment NOW. All the "repairs" would simply be cut out. That took a whlie to sink in but I got my mind around it and closed my business. "Now" is obviously a relative term that my surgeon and I disagree on because the injury was June 1 and I he and I have not even had our meet and greet moment let alone set the date for the surgery. He has received the Xrays from the hospital but I don't think he has even looked at them. I am on the waiting list for a cancelation to go to his clinic. Meanwhile I go between being able to walk straight legged or stand for short periods, using my cane when it is too sore, the walker if I need to go a distance or the crutches when it gives out on me. I can't do stairs at all and I can't manage on uneven surfaces or wear any kind of footwear with a heel. My Dad is a ortho surgeon (retired) and he is going nuts every time he sees me. Says this is insane. But... his interference before has caused some bad feelings with the surgeon and I feel like I didn't get as good care... so I am trying to be patient. Actually I think I will call the office again and see if there is any progress. Thanks for your advice. I CAN walk in the pool so I do that every day. I HAD been planning a canoe trip and another 5K. Oh well. Have to deal with the food dragon in the mean time who is trying to convince me I can feel sorry for myself with food. Nope. Gotta keep on fighting!

    I'm trying to get back to normal again too. It's not easy as something is always knocking me off my feet. I need new shoes but they never have my size here in town. So irritating.

    I live with chronic pain too. I mean everyday, it hurts!


But I decided that I will not let the pain hold me back. I find that exercising actually helps me feel less pain because it "juices the joints" as Leslie Sansone (Walk Away The Pounds) is fond of saying.

Omega 3 supplements help me with pain too, like Flax Seed Oil.

Just passing this on and hoping it may benefit you somehow to know this.


God Bless You Today!

May God richly bless you and your family. May he bless you in a personal way according to your greatest needs. May you know that it came from Him and give Him thanks and praise as you count your blessings.

sort of a laugh

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Cos I don't really care anymore, and actually she realized after she said it what it sounded like.

Hubby and his mum on phone, she is commenting about someone from years ago, hubby says 'Oh Cindy and her sister oh yea I remember both of them. When I was about 12 I was going to marry that Cindy. HA and here I ended up marrying a Cindy"
His mum replies quick as can be.... " oh yea... huhn yea you married the wrong one. " He quickly said NO I married the right one. My Cindy is the right one for me."
SHe says oh well yea, but the wrong one from when you were a kid, the one you planned to marry. "

Dear god he was 12. So for those of you that know the story of MIL not liking me, and after us being married for 20 years ( geesh 17 years ago WOW) she told us that she couldn't live like this but I had ruined her and her families life and was the worst thing that could have ver happened. blamed me for stuff, said I got preg. on purpose, that her sweet son only went in military cos of me. All of it was lies and even when hubby said uh NO NO NO. she wouldn't listen.
Well she "likes" me now, we can converse etc. but I am not alone with her as she still starts.

I started laughing when I heard them, I called out to hubby Hey Mur good save! LOL he laughed. lol

anyway had a good day 3. Had the challenge of eating out did well, and also was hungry this eve but didn't eat. Had eaten all I needed and was fine, so got more water, and walked the dog.
hoping my foot isn't from adding that 2 short walks on. Anyway, will ice it in the morning and see whats up . I have been wearing my orthotics and such but my shoes do slide a bit.
Oh well time for bed, very humid so have the fan on hoping I sleep better.

    I'm fortunate in that both of my MIL's were really nice women and they both liked me and I liked them. They tended to go a little overboard protecting their children's interest or what they mistakenly think is in their best interests like your MIL but maybe that is how most of us are. I know I'm too protective of my son and in some ways I might be wrong. I have liked all of this friends and GFs but one male friend though and he turned out to be a mess.
