We have actually been enjoying some nice weather over the past two days. High teens, so it has been the perfect temperature for me, as I am not a heat person. Hubby and I went to Costco's this afternoon to get fruit. It was getting pretty sad around here, especially when I resort to eating apple sauce in order to get my fruits in. Of course, I bought lots of berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries). I just wish they didn't go bad so quickly.
4 oz yogurt (35)
8 oz grapefruit sections w/juice (100)
1 raw pepper (25)
1 Smart Choice Three Cheese Ziti Marinara (290)
1 pkg Quaker Chrispy Mini's (90)
1/2 cup applesauce (50)
1 raw pepper (25)
1/2 english cucumber (25)
1 tablespoon low cal Ranch Dressing (15)
1/3 Dr. Oetker Ultimate Bacon Pizza (285)
1/2 cup diet jello (10)
1 cup fresh blackberries (60)
1 low fat ice cream bar (90)
Total step 6844
I missed my afternoon snack as my TOPS group has a concious idea this week of not having any chocolate and all I had at the office was my Life bars and they are chocolate. I now understand why they say you should never grocery shop when you are hungry. I went down the bakery isle at Costco and it all looked so good but I resisted temptation. We did have oven baked pizza for dinner but I managed to have one portion size so I feel really good about how I did.
Having a little trouble with my blood pressure as it wants to keep dropping, then I get dizzy and feel funny. Will have to keep an eye on it, I'm sure it is just because I am trying so hard to stay on program.
Good news about my Dad, they have discovered that it was his high blood pressure medication that was giving him the spells. His blood pressure is normal so when he took the pill it would drop it down and make his body think he was having a heart attack. I can't believe that they didn't check it sooner, he's been on them for 3 years and no one ever did a review with him. In fact, it was me that told him to tell the doctor that the pills were the problem. Only makes sense that if you are taking a pill to lower your blood pressure and your blood pressure is normal that it is going to do something wierd.
Hubby had a phone interview with a lady from the disability company today and she is going to look into a whole lot of things to see why no one has bothered to do anything for him over the past several years. I think God has finally answered our prayers, we just keep praying that she has some clout in the health care world and can pull some of this off.
