My stomach is feeling A LOT better today. I still lack some sleep, because of the blistering area from the Bio-Freeze, but it is healing. Today it has to be "business as usual, because today is weigh-in day. Nephew and I just came back from the doctor's office. He has lost 2 lbs. I am so proud of him. :-)
I was not going to weigh, because I really haven't been able to exercise in about 2 weeks. With all of the things with my back, etc... it just wasn't happening. BUT, I had to set an example.
A couple of weeks ago the nephew didn't want to weigh because he had not been exercising, and had eaten a few things not on our plan. He was afraid he had gained weight, and he did gain 2 oz. I told him then that we can't just weigh when we've been "good." Weighing is not a punishment, it is just a guide to tell us where we need to do better. The number on the scale is not who we are, it is just telling us if we need to work harder.
SO, today I had to eat my words and be a good example. I started off by telling him, I am sure I have gained weight, because I have not been able exercise, so let's just see what the numbers show. I was all prepared to do the whole "I am not upset, because I know I have not been physically able to exercise, blah, blah, blah.... However, I will not let this discourage me."
So, I get on the scale and.......................................................................................................................................................................................................
Are you ready?????????..................................................
I lost 6.2 lbs. :-) That brings my total weight lost to 39.2 lbs., so far. :-) I hope this is the beginning of a really good day.

Last night was another night from you know where. Pretty much that describes most of the day. Earlier in the day my brother went to the Health Food store to get some medicine for me, but I STILL could not go to the bathroom, and the gas pains were so bad I could feel them in my chest. My stomach was swollen. I tried lying in every position, again, but NOTHING would help. (I know, this is just a real classy post this time. Sorry)
Around 11:00 I finally woke my brother and asked him to go to Wal Mart to get some Gas X. He went to my sisters room for the keys and check book, at which point she "remembered" that she has "gas relief" medicine in her room. (Praise the Lord, but why didn't she "remember" this sooner?!)
I took the medicine and my brother stayed awake with me to see if it would work. After about an hour I was ready to fall from exhaustion, because I hadn't rested in over a week, but the pain wasn't gone. He wanted to take me to the ER, but I was not going to go to the ER for gas.
SO, he called the "nurse hot line" to find out what we should do. While we waited for the next 1 hr. and 45 minutes for her to call us back, it did subside some. I began to burp (HALLELUJAH), but nothing else.
The nurse finally called back and after talking to her for 30 minutes she said, sit in a hot bath and then use a suppository. If it doesn't help go to the ER. (EXCUSE ME?! I CAN'T GET ANYTHING TO COME OUT, NOT EVEN AIR, AND YOU WANT ME TO PUT SOMETHING IN?!)
It's now between 1:30 am and 2:00 am. Brother heads to Wal Mart for suppositories and I head to the bath tub. Everything gets taken care of and by 3:00 am we are all back in our rooms. I did get some rest, because the gas relief, finally kicked in. I just couldn't do the suppository until this morning. I just didn't have the strength to do it last night. It did work, however, and today has been much better.
After getting up at 6:00 am and going into work dear brother came home at 8:00 am, because he knew I would not feel up to doing laundry, cleaning house and teaching the nephew. (Thankfully, he has an understanding boss.)
I still have an occasional pain in my lower back on the left side, and in the lower abdomen on the left side. I did get gas after lunch today, but I took some gas relief and it is okay.
I was thinking about the irony of it all. Years ago we would order pizza AND have cheese dip in the same meal. And, I am ashamed to say I would eat more than my "fair share". But, I really didn't have stomach problems, other than it "growing." Now, I have been eating healthy, even during all of this the most I "cheated" was cranberry juice, and I am having all of the stomach problems 9 weeks into the plan. :-) Talk about irony.

Monday night was torcher. I hurt so much. No position was comfortable. I finally figured out I had gas pains. I couldn't go to the bathroom even though I KNEW I needed to. I was literally in tears.
I got up at 5:30 am yesterday and made a serving of oatmeal with strawberries in it. I also ate yogurt and a plum. My loving brother ran to the store to get me some prunes. I ate half of the container. It did the trick, and yesterday was a much better day.
Today, I got up and tried to have "business as usual." Didn't work. I have the pains, again, and not even the prunes have kicked in yet. GAS PAINS HURT!! My back hurts, and I am so uncomfortable!! My side and back are broken out from the Bio Freeze, still. Seriously, I think there may be scarring. It hurts. :-( I am just having a bad day and needed to vent. :-(
I will, hopefully, write a much happier post later. Please, be patient with me.

Well, my lower back/hips feel a lot better. Unfortunately the pain on my side/abdomen got worse. So, I went to the ER last night. Turns out I have a bladder infection. They gave me Vicadin (LOVE the Vicadin) and Cipro for an antibiotic. It has helped, and makes me sleepy. I still feel pain around my kidneys, but they have assured me I do not have a kidney stone.
NOW, when they do the initial consultation they weigh you. When they weighed me their scale showed that I have lost 17 lbs. since Wednesday. IF ONLY THAT WERE TRUE! Is that even possible? I don't know. Would be nice. :-)
Did you know that eating too much spinach or strawberries can cause a kidney stone? I didn't either, until I looked up "causes of kidney stones". (Isn't googling wonderful?) I eat at least 2 cups of sliced strawberries a day. They are fairly inexpensive, in season, and high in fiber. Also, they are my favorite fruit. SO, now I am cutting back on the strawberries. :-(
I'll write more when I feel a little better, so please be patient. :-)

OK, it is a couple of days late, but I did weigh-in this morning. :-) Since I last weighed I have lost 8.2 lbs. That brings my total loss so far to 33 lbs. :-) I would be doing the happy dance, except my back hurts WAY TOO MUCH.
I really didn't think I had lost that much, because I didn't exercise at all last week. My sister was in the hospital for 4 days, and unfortunately I didn't make time for exercise with all of the other stuff I needed to do. It sure made me appreciate my Mom a lot more. She and I share the housework, cooking, etc. and I do all of the teaching. SO, I made some bad choices in trying to balance my time. I did stick to the food plan though, so that helped. :-) Before the diet it would have been SO MUCH EASIER to just order a pizza or something. :-)
I think I did too much on Monday morning trying to make up for the week of no exercise. So far I have tried Tylenol and Aleve. The Aleve worked better. I also tried DOANZ. That didn't really work. I bought some"white willow bark", and I know that works. It just hasn't "kicked in" yet. I also bought some Bio Freeze this morning. Hopefully the combination of the two will help. :-) Anyone have any other ideas I can try? I'll try almost anything if it helps my back stop hurting so I can SLEEP.

I recently "rediscovered" this song by Russ Taff. I used to LOVE this song, and why I "forgot about it" I'll never know. I stumbled across it a few weeks ago, and it immediately went on my MP3 player. I have played it so many times since then it is unreal. When looking for it on YouTube I found several videos for it, but I like this one a lot. I hope you do too. He is joined in this video by Avalon. :-)

Don't you just love the color?! It is lavender with black polk-a-dots. And the bottom is a black "skirt". :-)
Today we went back to Catherine's, and my sister was very kind to buy me THIS:
The picture doesn't really do the color justice. It is a beautiful shade of teal, ya'll. To see it up close, it is just amazing.
She also bought me THIS:
It is also lavender, with pretty flowers on them. ;-) Now, you may be asking yourself, "Why is she wasting a post showing us 'lame' clothes?" BECAUSE...... They are 2 sizes smaller than what I wore about 8 weeks ago!! :-) That's right ya'll. 2 SIZES SMALLER. ;-) WOO HOO!! :-)
We also took the nephew shopping yesterday, and he is ALMOST 3 sizes smaller than what he was in. ;-)

I figured out a way to eat chips and salsa ya'll. :-) It was totally by "accident", literally, but it works for me. :-)
The nephew and I went to the grocery store the other night, and I intended to pick up a package of MISSION Whole Wheat Tortillas. Well, I grabbed multi-grain instead. I didn't realize it until I got home. We tried them anyway. I liked the taste, but the texture was too dry, it tore apart in my hands.
The next day I thought, "What if I bake them in the oven and get them hard? Maybe I could make tortilla chips." So, I laid one on a cookie sheet, cut it into 8 triangles with a pizza cutter and baked it for 10 minutes on 375.
I added NOTHING to them before I baked them, so the nutrition value was the same.
They tasted great!! :-) I had them with a little salsa, and a little tomatillo sauce. AND, because I only ate the 8 pieces that was 1 tortilla, so it counted as one piece of bread. :-) Pretty cool!! :-)
If you try them let me know what you think. :-)

1. Tell us a little about yourself. Well, there is a lot to say here. I am an outdoorsman, a camper, fisherman. I love to be in the mountains hiking. My family is awesome and my friends are great.
2. When did you begin singing? I always wanted to try and learn how to sing but never could get past my fears. It wasn't until Sep 11th 2001 on a cruise ship in Mexico that i finally decided it was time to try Karaoke. The rest is history.
3. Have you always wanted to have a singing career? When did you realize that this was your dream? No I never thought it was possible. I was a science nerd and a police officer want to be. This was never in the picture until a few years ago.
4. Who have been your biggest musical influences? Chris Ledoux, Garth Brooks, Josh Groban, etc...
5. What do you like to do most when you are not singing? What is your "hobby"? Camping and being in the mountains
6. If you could meet just ONE professional singer (living or dead), and spend an entire day with them; who would it be, and what would you talk about? Probably Chris Ledoux, and I would talk to him about his show. How he learned so many cool tricks on stage. I would just get to know him better.
7. On your website we can hear samples of you singing both Country and Broadway. What is your favorite genre of music to sing? What genres do you listen to "just for fun?" What's on your iPod right now? (guess that's 3 questions, huh?) :-) OK so I took the broadway down for the time being. I want to record those songs again. I prefer both styles. Just last week I had to sing for a music camp of aspiring broadway artists. My Ipod has a little bit of everything on it. You will hear mostly country though. That is what i most listen to.
8. Coke or Pepsi? Coke
9. Have you ever thought of trying out for American Idol, or Nashville Star? Yes, I didn't want to to Idol because of all the contracts and stuff but Nashville Star is still a possibility.

14. How did you get the titles for your CDs, "Since I Let You Go" and "Why Not Today"? Where did the ideas for these songs come from? Since I Let you go was from a break up that was all my fault. I had let the girl of my dreams slip through the cracks. Much of my music is influenced by my past relationships. Why Not Today is about me facing my fears. Start living the life of your dreams, Today..
15. Most of the people who know about you already know that you have been involved with FlyLady for the last year. Can you tell us more about that? She is so awesome. She has helped me get to the next level in my music career. She is so close she is family. As well as so many of her employees. I am so lucky to have them all.
16 Out of all of the people you have opened for, so far, who has been your favorite? Collin Raye, he was so nice to us. I really liked him as a person.
17. What musical instruments do you play? A little bit of Trumpet, very little guitar (That's Andy's job) and a tiny bit of piano. Maybe I can play the Cowbell.
18. What is your favorite home cooked meal? I love all food. This would be hard to pick.
19. Since I'm from the South we are ALWAYS sharing recipes. Do you have a favorite you would like to share? :-) Here is my favorite salsa recipe
Eric's Fresh Pico/Salsa

1 Large green Bell pepper
½ cup apple cider vinegar
1 onion ( can be left out if you don't like onions)
1 tbs of salt

A very dear friend, "S", gave me the book "Breaking Free" by Beth Moore. Ya'll this book totally rocks. :-) I have been getting up early each morning to read it, as part of my daily Bible study.
The book talks about how we, even Christians, can become "captive" of certain things that keep us from having a relationship with God, and keep us from receiving blessings. There are 5 obstacles that can keep us in "captivity". These are: unbelief (including fear), pride, idolatry, prayerlessness and legalism.
Yesterday it was revealed to me that I am PRIDEFUL. And you will never guess where this was revealed to me. AT THE CITY POOL! Yep, that's right. The pool.
Today is the last day that the city pool will be open. Last night we had our last class for water aerobics at said pool. So, I told the nephew that if he finished his school work and chores without complaining, etc. we would go to the pool early so we can just swim before class. He was very excited, and did everything he was asked to do. So, we went to the pool 2 hours before class started just to have fun.
NOW, I have not been in "public", in shorts, in a long time. If you will recall it took a lot for me to do it for water aerobics. Well, I had to go prepared for class. I was scared ya'll. I could just picture everyone looking at me, and saying mean things. (Can we say emotional scarring from childhood?) Anyway, I thought "I'm not getting in the pool." Then, it hit me. "You idiot, you're going to sit OUTSIDE in the HOT SUN because you are afraid people will see you in shorts. If you get IN the pool half your body is IN the water." OK, this made sense. SO, I got in. And..... are you ready for this? I HAD FUN!! No one even looked at me, to my knowledge. The nephew had fun, and I was able to get him to float on his back, go underwater, and he even climbed to the top of the slide twice. He was too afraid to slide down into the pool, but he almost did it. I think if we had about another hour he would have done it.
He let me show him how to float on his stomach, while I held his arms and "walked him" through the "deep end". (5ft is deep to him, even though he is 5'2).
Anyway, about an hour or so later I was talking to some of the other people in the pool, David had made some friends and was playing ball, and we were just having a good time. I thought to myself, "Why haven't we done this sooner?" The answer hit me immediately and like a ton of bricks. "Because you were prideful, and fearful. You robbed yourself of this blessing all along. If you had only humbled yourself you could have been out here having fun, and EXERCISING, but you had too much pride to be seen in shorts in public."
WOW!! I wasted an entire summer when I could have been exercising, not to mention the nephew, and I am KICKING myself. It did allow me to try one more time to get the nephew down the slide. I now had an "object lesson" if you will. I told him that his fear of going down the slide was robbing him of fun, just like my fear and pride robbed US of a summer of fun. It almost worked. He did think about it. Seriously.
SO, I am considering giving him the afternoon off so we can enjoy the last day at the pool. I don't know yet. We'll have to see how the day goes. I think the little girl we babysit would enjoy it too. We'll have to see what the morning brings. BUT, I do know that next summer we will be out there at least 2-3 times a week. Oh yes ma'am, we will. :-)
Thursday, August 09, 2007
We just came back from weighing-in. The nephew gained 2 oz. He is disappointed, but has vowed to do better about exercising.
I lost 4 lbs., so I guess my concern last night was for nothing. :-) That brings my total loss so far to 24.8 lbs. That is 1/2 a lb. away from my 13 week goal, and today is only day 40. :-) Hopefully, next week I will surpass my first goal, and have to set a new one. :-)
Tonight is supposed to be the last night for water aerobics, unless the instructor can find another pool to accomodate us. I pray she can. ;-) I may take the nephew up early, so we can just swim before aerobics. We'll see. He doesn't swim, but he does go under the water, which is progress. :-)
Wednesday, August 08, 2007
Ok, so yesterday morning we are eating breakfast. The nephew "faux fried" himself some eggs. (faux fried: No grease involved) He put a little grated cheese on it, and chowed down. I happened to glance over at him in time to see him "pick up his "rolled egg" and begin to bite. He looks at me and, referring to the egg, says "egg roll." Then proceeds to eat. He did this with a straight face ya'll. I was rolling!! :-)
It reminded of the time when he was about 4 or 5 and he laid on the blanket we had spread on the living room floor. He grabbed one end of the blanket in his hand and began rolling himself into it. He then announced, "look everyone one, I'm a pig in a blanket." Again, we were on the floor laughing. :-)
He has really been showing a new "side" of himself with his sense of humor lately. He is truly his "Uncle's nephew". Also, just with his attitude. He is 11 going on 50. One minute you want to pinch his head off because he is being so obnoxious, and then the next he does something so sweet you just want to hug him and never let him go.
It also amazes me about the things he "loves to eat" now. BTD (before the diet) he wouldn't touch anything "whole wheat". Now, he LOVES whole wheat bread and whole wheat tortillas. Tonight, I really wanted Mexican Food. So, I went to the store and bought EXTRA LEAN stew meat, a package of fajita seasoning, some low fat cheese, and a variety of bell peppers. I came home and asked him to help prepare dinner. I should have known the first question from him would be "what's for dinner?" He didn't disappoint. I then declared "We are having fajitas." His question, "On whole wheat tortillas?" And upon hearing the "yes" he screams "YAY, I love those." Amazing. I looked at him and thought, "Who are you and what have you done with my nephew?" He still wouldn't have anything to do with the peppers, but he did think they looked pretty in the pan. That's progress I guess.
He also will now eat gingersnaps. I guess when you are desperate for something sweet to eat you will try anything. So, I am now forced to share my gingersnaps. :-) But, it's okay. I don't mind. :-)
Also, he is actually doing his school work, on his own, with no supervision. I am still in shock. Yesterday he actually read the assignment, and did the work. He came to me and said, "I made an 80, please rework it for me". (The rule here is if you make less than an 88 you have to do it over. Thankfully we us Switched on Schoolhouse, and all I have to do is hit a few keys to rework the ones he missed.) Used to, he would take all day to sit staring at the monitor, then he would try to answer the questions WITHOUT reading the material, and make like a 30. Then he would want me to rework it. Maybe he is growing up?! :-) Let's hope so. :-)
On another note, tonight my brother "saved" our vacation by announcing that we can go to Houston for 2 nights in October. The nephew wants to go to Johnson Space Center, again. So we have that scheduled. We have the whole thing planned. One day at San Jacinto Monument/Battleship Texas and then "sightseeing". The next day at JSCH, and then the last day we will go to the Houston Zoo before heading home. It is a FULL schedule, but we are excited. :-) It's not the cabin in Wimberly we originally wanted, but I am just happy to get away for a few days. :-)
Tomorrow we have our 4th weigh in. :-) I am not sure how it is going to come out. I haven't cheated, and I have been exercising, but I feel "bloated". Is that normal? I don't think I've gained weight, but I don't know what the scales will show. My clothes are still fitting a little more lose.... well, we'll see. I'll update you tomorrow.
I hadn't planned on buying the nephew any clothes this time around, but on Sunday he let us know in no uncertain terms that his jeans are too big. We went to the fall back answer of put on a belt. Not only was he already wearing his belt, but he already had it on the last hole. He then felt the need to emphasise his point by pulling his belt as tight as it would go. SO, needless to say we will be taking advantage of "tax free weekend". :-)
OH, and totally unrelated to anything above, but I tried something new yesterday. I sliced a tomato, layed it on a glass dish and seasoned it with pepper and Italian seasoning. Then I put it in the oven on broil for about 10 minutes. I pulled it out and put a little grated cheese on it, and then put it back in the oven. It was SO GOOD. It reminded of me of pizza, but without... you know... the crust, sauce, pepperoni, veggies, extra cheese.... ok, so maybe it isn't like pizza, but it was still GOOD. And it looked healthy... :-)

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? We stayed at school. I was either in the library, or under the tree between the two buildings.
Thursday, August 02, 2007
I just finished watching the final episode of season 1, and all I can say is OMG!!! I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEW SEASON!!!!!! I cried so much, my heart is still beating a mile a minute!! I, of course, will still be watching Friday evenings, and I already have the DVR set to record. Now I actually have to go and TRY TO SLEEP! Oh my word, what a great show.
And if I didn't say it enough already, THANK YOU to anyone who had anything to do with keeping this show on the air.
Wednesday, August 01, 2007
I have to admit it; I didn't watch "Jericho" last season. To be honest, I didn't watch a whole lot of TV last season. Pretty much if it didn't involve dancing celebrities, a blonde woman seeing dead people, or have Gary Sinise, I didn't put it on my "must see" list. But, after hearing all of stories surrounding it I decided to give it a shot.
I read about it from DeeDee at "It Could Have Been Worse" . It sounded interesting, and she said you could watch the past episodes ONLINE. Well, I needed to put that on my to do list. About 3 weeks ago I was home on a Friday night. I happened to catch a re-run. I was HOOKED. I spent the next two Fridays WAITING for it to come on, and then I had a free weekend, and I remembered about the "watching online thing". So, what does one do when they have a free weekend? They spend it watching 18 episodes of "Jericho", that's what they do. ;-)
I have about 5 episodes left to watch, and then I will be ready for the new season to start.
SO, tonight I sit down in front of my computer, ready to watch just ONE episode before going to bed. But, of course we all know I will watch more than one. :-) BUT, the site is not working. I CANNOT for the life of me get the episodes to play. :-( I AM HAVING "JERICHO" WITHDRAWALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am serious ya'll. I have a problem. I LOVE this show. And, let me just say that if ANY of you reading this post had ANYTHING to do with CBS NOT cancelling "Jericho" "THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK for whatever you did." I will be recording next season, and watching EVERY episode.
SO, in short, "this show ROCKS!!!!!"
