Fat does NOT always mean unfit!!!

Thursday, November 13, 2014

I had to go for my CDL physical today and the anorexic looking provider in the knee high spiked heel boots decided I have sleep apnea and is taking away my truck license unless I have a sleep study done.

I have issues with being told by someone who DOES NOT KNOW ME or my history being allowed to screw with my life like this.

I have a really bad cold right now, so she decided I always have this much trouble breathing.

I have to have a sleeping partner fill out paperwork, which mrans Hubs has to take unpaid time off and deadhead home just to watch me sleep and fill out a form for an appointment for them to make a referral I don't want for a test my REGULAR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER agrees I DON'T NEED!!??!!!

AND one I have no chance of passing because I am claustrophobic and will have a panic attack when they put that machine on me.

I hadn't had a migraine in months. I had a massive one today and spent all afternoon throwing up when I wasn't napping or moaning in pain.

This sucks. And on top of that? She tried telling me I had to go to a doctor I wouldn't take my son's chihuahua to!
Yeah. I am not happy.

So my choices are spend thousands of dollars for this crap and still lose my license, give up voluntarily, or try to find a way around this..."person"s opinion.

I've scheduled an appointmentire with my regular care provider for Monday. I'm seriously considering scheduling one with a lawyer for tuesday. I consider this crap she's pulling harassment and discrimination.

Did I mention this woman also read the measuring device as me being 5 ft 6 inches tall? I've been 5 ft 3.5 inches for over 30 years!!! How can I be back up to 324 and have gained 2.5 inches in height since last year???

Sigh. I'm done ranting. The smartphone 8 nor helping the migraine. I'm going to bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Hope your day was better than mine!

    Well the government changed law, so obese or big neck size is a red flag for a sleep test. Our doc said you can do a home one but no clue what it was. dh went to chiropractor and got two more years... guess one and a half now. So go to ANOTHER provider till you find one that is not all gung ho if you can. Not all heavy people have sleep apnea. But the rules think otherwise. If they get rid of all overweight drivers they will change the rule as this will not work. Gotta have drivers. AND ones that can pass the random drug tests as well. Middle aged people are more sensible but who ever makes the new rules does not drive truck nor live with anyone that is over weight. I am sure of THAT. So feel your pain !

Almost friday

Friday, November 07, 2014

And I made it through the week. Today was dicey, I took the boys to green bay to Christmas shop. What was I thinking? !??!!

I got several things at St vincents. Mout importantly-some old college textbooks with workbooks to learn the accounting I need for my business. Got an electric indoor grill too. Not one of those foreman things. I had one of those and hated it. This one actually makes things grilled not glorified ironed.

Got some craft things I need for my business and used coupons. Saved over 1/2 from what I expected to spend. That was nice.

Took boys out for lunch and got pizza to our bring home for dinner. Didn't do too bad with my choices.

Now I'm going to bed and sleeping in late tomorrow.

Have a good one.

    Thrift shops are the best!!!!

I have found a lot of things I had wanted at them, for a tiny fraction of the price of new.
And hubby gets all his 3X size shirts for $3.89 each. Sweet!

Eh, I will get there...

Eventually. I'm working on the grocery list. Nothing healthy sounds good right now. We are all battling colds(hoping none of us end up with flu).

So things like soda, ice cream, Popsicles, etc are sounding good. Juice too, but the calories are horrendous for the quantities we are drinking. Between water and tea, I had 14 cups today!

I will probably pick up some sugar free Gatorade or Powerade. More tea mix. Bananas, mixed raw veggies, a few small apples. Cheese and soups, too.

Not sure what else, but I'm going to resist the temptation to buy chocolate and junk food.

Have a great day tomorrow.

    I buy some lower calorie juices when I feel ill.
Good plan not to have junk food in the house at all.
Hope you all get to feeling better quickly.

Maybe later...

My alarm went off at 0430 and I actually woke up and rolled out of bed...and immediately regretted it. My head feels like it has a very tiny, very angry person with a very large hammer, having a tantrum in it.

I got up, went to the bathroom, went to the kitchen and drank my grapefruit juice, then came back in my room and will be going back to bed for a while. Hot one minute, chills the next, wheezing and aching is not a good mix for going to the gym. We'll see how I feel after some more sleep. If I still feel horrible, I will just get for another walk and skip the gym until I feel better. No sense in passing germs around if I really am sick.

Why is it when you aren't feeling well and you are really thirsty that it feels good to drink a whole glass of whatever nonstop without stopping to breathe, but then you about pass out trying the catch your breath when you're done?? Yeah. Rhetorical question.

Now the chills are back. I'm going to go curl back up in fuzzy blanket for a couple of hours until the boys get up.

HVe a great day.

    I don't know why gulping liquid and gasping is so 'us' at times.

Oh no about feeling ill. Bummer!

So Hubs is helping

Sunday, November 02, 2014

Me get motivated. He is out for who knows how long on freight, but agreed to work out with me.

So today we went for a walk. I only made it up 2 blocks and back, but it's a start. He made 4 laps around the parking lot down at Landstar. Now, if we can get each other to do it every day...

I had to grab my inhaler when I got back. There is a no burn policy in our town, but it's pretty much ignored. Great for my allergy asthma...NOT!

tomorrow I will go to the pool first thing in the morning...if I can drag myself out on bed and stuff my bigger than it should be body in my swimsuit.

I'm thinking set the coffee pot up tonight and put my grapefruit juice in a cup on the counter.

Another friend pitched in a bit for the flying pig fund (thank you, you know who you are) and my spinning (with the drop spindle) is going pretty well. As soon as the wool I've already spun and skeined is dry, I will wash another batch and get it hung to dry while I spin more.

Don't even ask about the spinning wheel. All I have to say about it is that I will never buy another Loute product. End of comment. Particle board and plastic? Seriously???

Amazing MIL ordered a set of plans to see about building one. If Hubs and I had the time and funds to go visit, the two of them could probably build one in about 2 days. Sigh.

Hubs is going to see what he can come up with to fix this one when he gets a month or so. Maybe for thanksgiving.

He won't make it for the wedding reception. I probably won't go alone. I'm not good in crowds when I am by myself. I will get them a nice gift though.

Now that I've caught my breath, I think I will get some more spinning done.

Have a great day!

    That is pretty romantic in a way, you both walking even though apart.

Wow, someone gets away with burning during a ban? In my town they can't burn and people would turn them in. I am in the country and can burn. But NEVER will I bother burning leaves!

Keep walking and the distance will come.

    I've got a brass flying pig ornament (as in the saying "pigs might fly before that happens")

Great that you got your workout in, but not so great that you had pollution that set your asthma off.
