Good evening. I had my Endocrinologist appointment this morning. It’s now been 14 months without a menstrual cycle. The next step is a blood draw on Thursday morning. They’ll be testing my Human Growth Hormone levels and my adrenal levels. From there I will be having an MRI done to see if I have any ‘growths’ on my pituitary gland. If the blood results are unfavorable the MRI will happen quickly. If the results are good then it won’t be as urgent. If there happen to be growths on my pituitary gland it would be recommended to surgically remove them. Yeah, that’s in my head, behind my eyes. I’m not keen on that being the case. So, blood draw Thursday and then I should know within a week what those results are. In my mind I don’t think it’s that serious since I don’t have a lot of the other symptoms that go along with the worst case scenario.
Good morning! Yesterday was rough. I got in to work at 8am and found out one of the coworkers needed to leave at 10am for a dentist appointment. He has an infected tooth and his dentist is in Madison. After he left my friend got a phone call that her son was in distress. He’s a diabetic and was having extremely high blood sugar and was really out of it. An ambulance was sent to Westfield to bring him to the hospital. Needless to say my friend was in a panic and met him at the hospital. Thankfully she called in Melissa early since I have no idea how to do the pagination. When Nick was done at the dentist he got Dusty’s text and came back to work. They are pulling the tooth on Wednesday afternoon.
It was very scary to hear about my friend’s son. He’s stable now, but I’m unsure if she’ll be at work today or not. I have a Dr. appointment at 9:20 so I’m not going in until after that. I hope all is well. I worked from 8am-6pm yesterday without a break. I did eat lunch at 1:30 at my desk and it was steady chaos all day long. I’m hoping today when I’m there I can get a bunch accomplished since it’s a busy week. I can’t stay late today since L has piano lessons and she already missed last week because her teacher was sick.
In better news my SIL had her baby on Sunday night. He’s super cute and I’m hoping we’ll get to go see them this weekend. We are hoping to go hiking near their house and then we can drop in. I think I’ll take along some food for them. That was always the hard part about having a newborn, finding time and energy to prepare food.
I’m working out, except today is my DOR, it’s been way too many days since I’ve rested. The home scale was 147.8# which is decent. Tomorrow morning I’m going in to work from 8am-10:45 and then heading over to WW. I’m not going back to the paper in the afternoon since I have some things I need to get done. Although, IF hubby gets rained out from work I’ll go back, I’m not sure.
Thursday I work from 8am-3pm and then I have to go to school to pickup the fundraiser items. Or if hubby is rained out he can do it and I can work a bit later. It’s all up in the air at this point.
Enoy the day!
Good morning. I’ve already worked for 3 hours this morning at the newspaper. It’s a busy time of year with Graduation and Memorial Day so I went in to work. The extra money will be good.
Yesterday I ended up push mowing the rest of the yard, 2 hours! I earned a ton of Activity Points yesterday, that and a few blisters! My workout this morning was just walking on the treadmill while I read my book. This afternoon (as long as the rain holds off) I’m going to get some veggie plants and seeds into the garden. I also have to prep lunches for the upcoming week and prep a few suppers.
L is having a friend over this afternoon and she’s already completed her list of chores for the day, so I’m happy with that.
C is doing much better. Saturday she was awake the entire day and managed to eat a bit more food. Today she is perky as ever with just a stuffed up nose. Considering there is only 11 1/2 days left of school, I’d like her to be healthy!
There isn’t much else happening around here. I’m just keeping busy and trying to get everything accomplished that I want to.
Good rainy Friday morning. I was home yesterday with a sick kiddo. C was ill again. She woke up with a stomachache and she said she felt hot. At that time she didn’t have a fever, but stayed home from school. She proceeded to sleep the entire day away. She was up now and then to drink some water, but that was it. Around 3:30pm she got up and requested a popsicle, her only ‘food’ of the day. At that time she had a 100.4 degree fever. So I gave her some medicine to bring that down. On to this morning….she is home still, no fever, but again sleeping on the couch. She’s a bit congested too. Poor kid. She missed 3 days last week and 2 days this week, at least today is only a half day.
Hubby called a bit ago and they got rained out at work so he’s on his way home. That means I can go work at the paper today! Yeah for someone making money today.
Exercise is still going well. The scale was at 149# on the nose after eating Mexican food last night for supper. My two co-workers from the Thursday night Weight Watchers meeting are celebrating birthdays today and tomorrow so we went out to celebrate. They indulged in margaritas and daquaris and I had a diet pepsi! LOL It wasn’t my birthday after all. I also tried something new, a shrimp quesadilla rellena. Delicious and light! I think seafood is the way to go.
No major plans for the weekend. L wants a playdate with a friend from school so I have to work that out yet. I’m hoping C starts to feel a bit better.
My FIL is home and doing so much better! The extra good news is they sold their home up north so they no longer have to worry about that home too. The downside is they have 2 weekends to get the place cleaned out. Of course they asked hubby to assist with that and since he wants the trailer that is up there he’s going to have to go up at some point to get it. Sadly it’s a 3+ hour drive and that makes for a long day.
Next week is going to be a bit busier for us..
- Monday – exercise at home, work at the paper
- Tuesday – exercise at home, Endocrinologist appointment, C has a field trip, work at the paper, piano lessons for L
- Wednesday – exercise at home, work Weight Watchers, p/u kids from school to take L to a meeting for band, p/u friend’s kid from practice
- Thursday – exercise at home?, work at the paper, p/u kids to get fundraiser items from school, deliver a few items, back to the HS at 6:45pm for L’s choir concert
- Friday – exercise at home, work at the paper
That’s it from me, enjoy the day!
Good morning! Wow, who could remember that working is such hard ‘work’! LOL I mean, I don’t have my free time to clean the house, do laundry, dishes, weed the garden, etc. So, since I don’t work at the paper today, I’m trying to cram that all in.
Let’s see…..I worked at the paper Monday & Tuesday. Yesterday I stayed late and let the girls come home to an empty house, along with a list of chores to do! I did call them to make sure things were going well and they made it about 45 minutes as latch-key kids before I came home.
The last two nights we’ve gone on a family walk for 1 mile around the neighborhood. There is a local 5k coming up and I’d love for them to be a bit more enthusiastic this year, so we are ‘training’ a bit. Next week we are going to do the 2 mile walk if the weather cooperates with us.
I’m still working out. Yesterday morning I did two of Jillian’s DVDs, workout 1 & 2. At the time it didn’t seem to rough, but my quads, hamstrings and glutes are a tad sore today. This morning I just ran/jogged for 45 minutes. I’m also sneaking in 10-15 minute walks on my lunch break at work. The home scale said 148.4# this morning.
On tap for today…
- Dishes (dishwasher running now)
- Online training for Weight Watchers
- Bake bread
- Make granola for L’s Art Club party
- Shop at Kmart & Walmart
- Work Weight Watchers
- Plant potatoes & onions
- Pull weeds in the garden
- Pickup friend’s daughter
- Maybe walk with the kiddos
- Prep salads for lunches
That should keep me plenty busy. All of that, along with enjoying this gorgeous weather we are having in Wisconsin! Finally!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I’m going to recap yesterday. The girls were at a sleepover Friday night and I picked them up around 11am or so. After lunch I went to the library and came home to this….
They were out COLD! Hubby and the cat were also sleeping. I was only gone for 40 minutes, tops. Oh well, it was a quiet household for a while anyway.
Last night we played a couple of board games and watched Bones on TV.
My workout this morning was a 10 minute warmup on the elliptical and then Level 4 of Ripped in 30 with Jillian. I need to get back to the other Jillian DVDs this week too. I also finished up my new Assessment for my ActiveLink. It had me earning an average of 6 APs last week, that’s without Zumba classes, so that’s pretty decent. I do hope I can get in some evening walks after supper this week to increase my activity. Sitting at a computer from 8am-3pm at the paper doesn’t do any good as far as movement goes.
The thing I shouldn’t have done this morning was step on the scale. I do not deserve the number I saw. Yesterday I was 147.6#, wonderful and I felt great! I had a good day yesterday, exercised at home, ate well, maybe had too much sodium and saw 150# this morning! Blerg, not a happy mother’s day weight for me. It made me mad for a bit, but I’m just going with sodium as a culpret. Water today will help.
My Mother’s Day plans were to go hiking. However, it’s about 40 degrees outside, sunny BUT windy! Not my idea of hiking weather, so I came up with a backup plan. BOWLING! I like bowling and since it’s my day it’s what I choose to do. The alley doesn’t open until 11am, so we are going to have lunch here and then drive over to Baraboo to bowl. I also need to stop at Pierce’s and get some Shiritaki noodles for supper tonight. I’m making spaghetti & meatballs and garlic/cheese buns! I prepped the meatballs last night and just need to bake them up.
We were going to see my FIL this afternoon since he WAS coming home. Change of plans, due to swelling in his legs he’s staying down in Madison. Ugg…we wanted to see him. Oh well, hopefully sometime soon he’ll be home.
So after bowling & shopping we’ll head home to chill out. I’m thinking a few more board games are on order and a bit of ‘quiet’ time too.
My upcoming week looks like this…
- Monday – exercise, work at the paper, haircuts after school
- Tuesday – exercise, work at the paper, piano lessons
- Wednesday – exercise, work at Weight Watchers
- Thursday – DOR?, work at the paper, work Weight Watchers
- Friday – exercise, work at the paper, Early Release for the kids.
- Saturday – exercise, hiking?
- Sunday – ?, C has a birthday party in the afternoon
Enjoy your day!
Good morning! Quick post. I’m going back to work at the newspaper today. C is better, thank goodness! She slept a total of 15 1/2 hours (including her 3 hour nap). She woke up happy, feeling better and ready to go back to school. I’m happy she’s better.
My workout this morning was 45 minutes on the treadmill. Mostly running or jogging, very little fast walking. I was sweaty afterwards, always the sign of a good workout! The scale said 148.2# this morning, down a lot from yesterday.
After school today the girls head out for a sleepover. Hubby and I have no plans.
My FIL should get out of the hospital today. He actually called hubby last night and was totally coherant. We are going to be buying their Pontiac Vibe so that hubby has a vehicle that gets better gas mileage for his commute. I’m hoping that will happen Sunday if all goes well.
Not much else to say. Enjoy your day!
