Signed onto Blogger this morning and saw the nice round 1-0-0 where it says followers. Couldn't have come at a better time. I took an extra day off (tomorrow) to make my long weekend extra long. The timing will give me this long weekend to get together those promised giveaways just in time for next week.
The latest news from the battlefront is that I went, food logs (with "cheat days"!) in hand, to see a nutritionist. Just can't figure out why-oh-why my freaking weight keeps bouncing back up to 180 ( or higher!) when I feel like I'm doing things the right way.
Verbatim this is what she said:
"You are doing everything pretty much perfect. I think you need to get your family doctor to refer you to a good Endocrinologist because some people, even when their thyroid is 'regulated' need more - they need extra help. I'm not going to be able to help you food wise any better than what you are already doing for yourself."
Well, not that I'm thrilled with the idea of adding yet another doctor to my repetoire, but it does make me feel better to know that
So, I am seeing my doc on June 7th and will ask for the referral then. Stay tuned.
Do you know what Memorial Day is all about? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.
Plus, I found out that "Traditional Observances" include visiting cemetaries. The reason I found that so interesting is because I had already planned to take my 3 mile recovery run through our local cemetary. Our local VFW goes there and puts American Flags on every soldier's grave. In this cemetary, there are many soliders dating back to the Civil War! It's actually quite inspiring to see. This is something I have done every year and didn't even know I was following a tradition. It's actually a lovely run, with no traffic and the paved roads are in excellent condition. It's quiet and peaceful and I get a chance to run by the resting places of several of Mr. Helen's family members. I usually stop and say hi at each place.
This may be it from me this week peeps. You know how I am about unplugging on the weekends. I have lots planned to fill this long weekend so I don't expect to write any more, though I may pop in to read :-) Plus we are supposed to have some spectacular weather and I am looking forward to having my first beach day - or days! - of the summer.
