Weight: 305.0

Yesterday I enjoyed life - today not so much.

DH and I got up and at the spur of the moment decided to go and vote early! The line wasn't too long and it moved fast, so I felt like I did my patriotic duty. When we were finished though the line was wrapped around the building so we got there at the right time. Then we went to the Home Store and looked at Christmas decorations. Why, oh why did I do this? I get so overwhelmed with all the ideas that run through my brain. I get an idea in my head and I fixate on this one idea and I want to make it work! Anyway, that trip kick started a panic attack I think.

DH left for work at 11:45 and I decide to take the doggos out for a walk. We went someplace new and maybe that contributed to my panic attack. We went to Avon Lake and there were so many trails that crisscrossed and ran into/onto each other it was hard to keep track of where I was. And of all the places I've been walking, this is the most ugly place.

I could not find my usual peace here...and once I made it back to the car, I had to sit there for awhile. I then took the doggos to a dog park, but this dog park is covered in all little pebbles, that I think hurt their feet, so we didn't stay long.

I did make a quick trip tothe store for mushrooms for my beef stroganoff dish I had planned with the left over steak we had.

Once I got home I fell asleep for about an hour and when i woke up I cooked and was bombarded with texts from the girl about whether or not she is going to the rescheduled woman's appointment. This is NOT my call. The mother doesn't want you to go, Your dad does, so I'm really not the one to ask.

She just can't or won't talk to her mother. And then her mother is telling her things about me that just isn't true and this breaks my heart and hurts my feelings that she would stoop this low just to put ideals in her head.

I am at the office today and was supposed to have my performance evaluation, however, I think it is postponed untl Thursday.

Dinenr last night...salad and beef stroganoff with those horrid egg noddles that probably elevated my blood sugar this morning to 140.

B: toast; vanilla iced latte

L: left over stroganoff

D: rotisserie pork, salad, cottage cheese

I may or maynot walk the doggos when I get home, depends on how I feel. Right now...defeat sums it up pretty good.

I will handle this too...have a great day! IP

Donkey on 10/13/2020:
I can only hope that your day gets better. I'm so sorry :-( I can relate to the anxiety that shopping can bring - well, it brings me a lot of anxiety when I am faced with a lot of options and decisions.

That's too bad about the walking trail. Something that was supposed to calm you down and bring you peace didn't work - that's disappointing.

It sounds to me like you had a lot of smaller events that, all together, became overwhelming.


grannyannie on 10/13/2020:
Looks like a nice walk.

Sorry about all the drama with girl's mother. I can understand that. My son's ex wife has always been a selfish drama queen and is now in charge of whether I see my granddaughters or not. She was also trying to get the eldest one (who I am close to) to turn against me.


Jacky82020 on 10/13/2020:
Great photos and love the dog!!


bearcountrygg on 10/13/2020:
I don't blame you for stepping back and letting her dad take care of things....must be awfully frustrating dealing with them.


Horn_of_plenty on 10/13/2020:
haha...i don't find it particularly ugly! i do like the bridge!

you are eating strogonoff and Bear is eating goulash...i'm tempted to make one of these!!! :)

you have been doing good walks...i am not sure i could keep up with you!...i was spent after a 40 min walk thru the rain today! ha!...thank you for reminding me to do MORE cardio...i don't do much (but do try to do a minimum (half hour at least, most days) as well as my weights routines).

innerpeace on 10/14/2020:
Stroganoff = good but raised my blood sugar with noodles and carbs - will not probably eat this agian.

Yesterday DH and I did go for a walk - or primitive hike I should say. It was fun, however, I am sore in places I didn't even know about today. This was a primitive trail - marked as unimproved and moderate - usually used for horseback riding...this is a 2.2 loop that crosses over the Vermillion river several times. Oh let's try it I say. We crossed over the Vermillion river a few times on little skimpy makeshift bridges and each time DH says...At least I didn't get my feet wet. One time we had to hold onto a tree and step across stones and tree branches lying across the river...again...I didn't get my feet wet.  We walk on and meet a man wearing galloshes and he said it wasn't too bad...so we went on.

There were bugs lots and lots of bugs and this made me irritable and I just wanted to get finished - this was the longest 2.2 mile loop in my life.

 

 

We walked and walked and came across the picture above....we had to get our feet wet. And then walk about 1/2 mile to the end....we will invest in hiking boots if we go back on this particular trail.

It was fun, I did poke myself in the shin with a tree branch and sporting a knot and bruise, but this will heal fine.

B. spinach bacon fittata

L: balanced breaks and string cheese

D: steak, brocolli saland and baked beans

Blood sugar this a.m. 120 (day 5 on the cinnamon/chromium) supplement.

Today - no work -no plans

Will walk with the doggos before DH goes to work.

Have a great day! IP

Progress as of today: 31.7 lbs lost so far, only 96.2 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 10/12/2020:
Looks like a nice walk. Nice meals as well!


bearcountrygg on 10/12/2020:
Beautiful place there...I'm going to look into that cinnamon/chromium supplement for D.....I'm wondering if he can take it along with metformin.


Horn_of_plenty on 10/12/2020:
primitive it is...with that same nasty brown water ;) haha

good for you on doing this walk...i'm sure i'd have had a tough time as well!

i wish i had a walking partner again...my last one i got rid of...lol...too many arguments.


Donkey on 10/12/2020:
I also wish I had a walking partner.

After yardwork I decided to watch the OU vs Texas game but only made it to the 3rd quarter...too intense for me...OU did win after 4 OT periods...I heard afterwards.

DH and I took the dogs to Huron, Ohio to a great dog park they have there. We let the dogs run and play for about and hour. There is also a Children's nature trail right by the dog park so we decide to walk through the nature trail. It was nice and informative there were different sections - South Woods we went through - I took these pictues - one is blurry but it was cool the way the leaves on the trucks were all red or turning red and this make shift teepee/lean to.

There were areas for butterflies and bees and pollinators but because this is autumn, there was really nothing to see...I thought maybe because they put the exhibits up for the winter. However, I kept seeing a sign that read Fungi so I was really excited to see a Mushroom/Fungi exhibit because of all the mushrooms I've been seeing around lately. Or maybe they are always there, I just never noticed.

So after walking around we finally see the sign pointing the direction to the Fungi...we walked, the further we walked the more excited I got...and this, this is what it was....

 

A freaking little playground with mushrooms...OH well, it was a children's nature trail. After our good laugh we headed back home. We also ran across another trail we want to go on, this one we are thinking goes by Lake Erie, so maybe later today we will go. - Nope DH nixed this already!

I was hungry and we were trying to figure out what to eat and DH suggests steak so we stop at Sam's and get steaks...but we didn't cook them.

We had rotisserie chicken, baked beans and brocolli salad - it was later almost 7:00 so we will probably eat the steaks this evening.

WIll get laundry started...maybe read something and go for a walk later.

Blood sugar this a.m. was 126

B: spinach, bacon frittata and vanilla iced coffee

L/D: steak, brocolli salad and baked beans

No work tomorrow...will hang out and look for my Halloween costume.

Found my Airpods...YAY

Have a great Sunday...GO BROWNS!! IP

LOL.....well...there were mushrooms there...


Jacky82020 on 10/11/2020:
Lovely pics! again. I’ll have to photograph my hen fungi or whatever they call it.


Donkey on 10/11/2020:
I meant to mention on your entry yesterday, that I too find instant peace when I step out into nature for a walk. Even my lunchtime walks in suburbia, I focus on the trees and flowers and such.

I saw part of the Red River game on TV when I was at the gym. I was much more interested in the Tennessee v. Georgia game, which was oh so close! I do not think I could sit through 4 OT's.

Could your husband make a doctor's appointment for the girl, as her father? This is a disaster just waiting to happen...


Maria7 on 10/11/2020:
Chicken, baked beans, and broccoli salad sound delicious! Love your outside nature photos.


Horn_of_plenty on 10/11/2020:
too much lol with the Fungi exhibit...i'd be pretty "perturbed" about it too! hahaha!

glad you are getting out, going to see new places. doing this makes me happiest...seeing new things.

Up this morning, DH and I went for a walk, very nice weird weather for this time of year. I have a thing about the paths/trails...every time i look and see it, it just brings me peace, that is why I have so many trail/bridge/path pictures. I also seen this new breed of mushroom I haven't seen before. Had to pull the doggos away.

 

 

Got home, stripped the beds and started the laundry and mowed the front yard. I feel so accoplished already today.

Blood sugar was 110 this a.m. super excited about this (Day 3 of the cinnamon/chromium supplement)

Dinner last night - I made zuchini boats - hollowed out with onion, zuchini, bread crumbs, chicken and a small amount of cheese and then baked it all together...very light and satisfying. Also had a tomato, cucumber, avacado salad.

Today after the walk we stopped at Wendy's again - DH is a sucker for the vanilla frostichino that have so I got the maple bacon, chicken croissant again. Tomorrow I won't do this going the opposite direction of Wendy's.

WIll watch the Red River Rivalry today and hopping my team will win - I don't think I remember ever seeing them lose 3 games in a row...I mean EVER in my life!

Drama with the girl's mom - but I am so through with this. The girl's well woman check was supposed to be yesterday at 3:00 - so about 2:30 I texted and said - so I guess this appointment is canceled? And her reply - Yes we've talked about it and decided that if she goes to this appointment it will just give her the green light to have sex. And she said she wouldn't have sex until she turns 18 and we trust her. That was it...I blocked her from my phone. I will not deal with her nor her husband in any way. DH can and will have to...I'm just out of it.

Yes...well I trusted her too and that's the whole reason for the appointment. And the girl wants to see her Tony Bolonga - well not on my watch - so we'll see how bad she wants to see him. This is all.

I misplaced my airpods - my phone says they are around the house, but I cannot find them....still searching.

Have a great weekend! IP

 Worked in the office - brought my office/desk chair home. We got new ones for the new office.

Took the dogs out for a walk. We off-trailed it and got stuck in some stickers and bugs, we ended up in a tree nursery or tree farm. This is the old golf course they have made into a preservation. We finally made it back to the trail and came home. For some reason it was a hard walk. The doggos always act like idiots here, can't say why, but we won't be going back unless DH or the girl is with me, they are just too hard to handle at this place. Maybe because there are so many other dogs. Can't say for sure.

DH put that beef roast on the rotisserie, yeah, I don't recommend this. It turned out to be tougher than an old boot.

Dinner I ate left over grilled chicken, salad and cottage cheese.

Blood sugar at 136 this a.m. (day 2 of the cinammon/chromium supplement - maybe not working yet)

Teleworking today with a webinar later.

L: TBD - maybe soup

D: zucchini boats with the rest of the left over chicken

Yard work tomorrow, no other real plans.

Have a great weekend! IP

That's so disappointing about the roast. I guess that was better suited for the crockpot.

Oh I hate getting those burrs and stickers. I usually fall victim once a year with my sweater getting stuck, when I take the very short path to the UPS Dropbox. Let's see if I can avoid doing that this year.


Maria7 on 10/09/2020:
That's real nice that they gave you your office desk and chair. SMILE!


bearcountrygg on 10/09/2020:
That will make working at home a little more comfortable.....good deal.


Jacky82020 on 10/09/2020:
Can you use the roast for a stew or soup? I’d toss it into a crockpot with carrots and potatoes.


Horn_of_plenty on 10/09/2020:
that's nice...now you have a decent office chair at your home! very good ;)

maybe there was a strange scent in that park where you were with the dogs? maybe some other dog marked it's territory!?

anyways, good plan to only head back with your "backup" team

Emotional Day for me yesterday...about the girl.

I have three nephews, my best friend's nephew and DH's son - all 5 boys did not graduate highschool. Of the five - two are in jail, two have kids they can't support and the last is living on a pipe dream about racing a car he can't afford to fix and/or drive. They contribute nothing to socieity; all they do is figure out how to take, take and take some more from socieity and other family members. They are a special kind of disgust to me. I remember when I was in highschool working a part-time job and saved enough money to fly to Colorado to see a concert - Dolly Parton, Kenny Rodgers and Sawyer Brown - I loved them all and we (my best friend and I) even got to meet Dolly Parton she was staying in our hotel...I digress. Anyway,  my friend and I wanted to miss two days of school. My mother wanted me to get a note from my teachers (all five of them) that I had turned in all my work and/or had no tests due those two days before she would even consider me going. Not that we were only 16 at the time, but things were different back then and not nearly so dangerous or so it seemed at the time.

Anyway, I got notices all day yesterday from PowerSchool that the girl had unexcused absences. She later texted me that she was in the cabin in the woods somewhere south of Nashville with no phone service nor WiFI access to even log into school. What on earth is going through this parent's mind? How can you just pick up in the middle of the day and take your child out of school for no reason? These last three years of highschool are very important. The girl is a great student and if she keeps her grades up she has scholarship opportunities, why can they not see this? It saddens me that they won't let her excel and do her best. It saddens me that they are OK with this. I don't feel this was in the best interest of the girl and they are failing as parents. I hope she is that good of a student to catch up when she gets back...so much for the well woman appointment I made for the girl tomorrow that her mom said she would take her to...dumb b1tch! Luckily for her she doesn't now I rescheduled it for next Friday when the girl is with DH and I...because the girl said she didn't want her mother to take her.

Took the doggos out for a walk (Indian Hollow - no new pictures)- stopped at the store for sugar free peach jello.

D: grilled chicken, cottage cheese, southwest salad mix

I made a diabetic pie - It is yogurt, sugar free jello and fat free cool whip all mixed together in a pie crust - very light, fluffy and sweely satisfying.

Kinda watched the debate....

Slept OK

Blood sugar this morning was 124 (with my cinnamon/chromium supplement that I took - Day 1)

B: just crack an egg - protein (no potatoes)

L: grilled chicken, cottage cheese

S: balanced breaks

D: rotisserie beef roast, salad, maybe roasted Brussel Sprouts or Broccoli

In the office today - my conference call was rescheduled until next week. 

I told DH I would mow - so I may just walk the doggos around the neighborhood.

Have a great day! IP

Left a 4:00 to go walking. We went to a different trail in Columbia Station. It was nice, I like others better. We walked about 45 minutes. We ran into this mucky looking water, this small pond and these cute purple wild flowers and the path photo...

Ate rotisserie pork roast and cottage cheese for lunch and dinner.

Felt sleepy about 10:00 but ending up staying up until 10:45. Kinda overslept this morning not getting up until 6:30 - glad I didn't have to go to the office.

Blood sugar this a.m. 136 - 

I have read about cinnamon and chromium lowering blood sugar and will research this.

B: vanilla yogurt, granola, blueberries

L: grilled chicken, cottage cheese

D: probably the same

WIll go to the store later and get some more tomatoes and cucumbers, maybe avocado and lettuce.

I will go into the office tomorrow to do some things and I have a conference call.

For some reason the song from Santa Claus is Coming to Town is on repeat in my mind...Put one foot in front of the other....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4fc74snmK8

You are doing so well with the walking and the sugar levels....you ROCK IP.

I know cinnamon is good for something but can't recall what. LOL. I put it in my porridge every day.


Horn_of_plenty on 10/07/2020:
they water may look that color due to the types of things growing in it...right? it's interesting the way some waters are so clear and some not.

Those wildflowers are so beautiful! at the farm i help out on, there's some really pretty flowers too - which they sell! :) i just look or take home any extras ;)

speaking of your eating cottage cheese, i'm thinking to have a simple yogurt and veggies tonight. I must start eating healthier - too many cookies and candies have me feeling gross the past few days.

your rotisserie pork sounds very good!

Yesterday I received a text from the girl's step-dad telling me she won't be coming over this week because they are going to Tennessee. Of course my concern is IT IS A SCHOOL WEEK! I replied You are aware she has school and I'm not a fan of putting education on the back burner like you let the older two kids do. Couln't she stay with her grandmother again?

His reply was of course snarky - She can do her work there got her hotspot - and what I did with my kids is none of your business I'm trying to be nice but don't push it.

I replied - I'm actually at work, so I would suggest let the mother talk to the father - good day! and I blocked his stupid @ss! 

I hate this person with every inch of my being. DH called the mom and her reply was we take her out of state all the time. He was yes...during summer on vacation when we have it planned out! We don't just pick up and leave...and then the - I'm the custodial parent and I'll do what I please! Me, I, I - never once was the best interest of the girl taken into consideration. I despise these people so, so much. November 23rd cannot come fast enough and I just hope and pray for a good outcome on our behalf.

Got home and walked the dogs  - we walked around the neighborhood because I didn't want to get caught in the dark...saw this cool Halloween decoration pumpkins up a flagpole and they light up at night (I neither approve  nor condone the political sign - so don't look at that)

DH was home when we got back and he was still pretty mad about the girl being taken off.

We have been texting her and she said she is trying to do school work...we'll see

Dinner was the rotisserie pork roast, cucumber tomato salad and cottage cheese

Went to bed at 10:00 slept good.

B: vanilla yogurt, blueberries, granola

L: left over pork roast, cottage cheese

D: TBD

Teleworking today - trying to get stuff done but my mind is elsewhere.

Horn_of_plenty on 10/06/2020:
i'm glad to hear how you value education. i do, too.

it's tough when dealing with family that doesn't agree with your life goals / decisions / opinions.

at least the girl is getting a lot of good ideas when she is with you. just know in your heart that you are a great guardian, IP!


Horn_of_plenty on 10/06/2020:
i guess the family is taking advantage of cheap vacationing? or travel? or moving?


Donkey on 10/06/2020:
You should save a snapshot of the texts between you and step-dad to demonstrate that they do not hold education in high regard.

Love the pumpkin decorations! We have a few families that have cut up those plastic pumpkin buckets (for candy) and put them on top of their porch and garage lights, so that they have jack o' lanterns for porch lights. But the tower is way cool!

Serious attitude today! Days like today are why people quit trying....

Scale is steady - was hoping to have lost a couple of pounds but I can deal with this. My blood sugar was 141 today? WTF? Like I keep saying this is for no mortal man/woman to figure out.

DH takes a bag full of meds for hypertension, cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes and eats whatever the F*** he wants and is crowing about how his blood sugar is 88. Seriously dude? I don't think that is anything to be happy about.

Anyway, right now I am like I refuse to take that sh1t! Someone asks do I feel better? Heck, I don't feel any different than I did when the blood sugar was 238. I have no symptoms (frequent urination, feeling thirsty, blurry vision, cuts/bruises that don't heal and certainly no unexplained weight loss or fatigue....ok I did fall asleep yesterday about 2:00, but it was freaking raining and cold and who doesn't fall asleep then? I feel all that medication is a crutch to keep eating the way you want and not improve and do better for yourself. These are my feelings right now...tomorrow, they may change. Am I defiant? Maybe, stupid? Probably.

I guess I will continue doing what I'm doing. I didn't get up this morning (i could have but chose not to) because it was cold.

B: bacon, spinach frittata, vanilla iced latte

L: left over bacon, spinach frittata

D: rotisserie pork, cottage cheese

DH called and said he was going to work early and should be home by 6:00 pm. Great then he can go walk with us. I hate the days getting shorter.

Hopefully will get over my attitude and have a good Monday.

In the office today...so to be a good day, will have to avoid people too!

More later....have a great day! IP

I'm not quite where you are at right now, but give me 30 minutes at work, and I'm sure I'll be right there with you. And I hate the days getting shorter, too. I think that's the one drawback about the colder months.


grannyannie on 10/05/2020:
Meals sound yummy.


bearcountrygg on 10/05/2020:
If his Blood sugar is 88 on pills....then they are working...D is on 2 B.S. pills and we celebrate when it's 117...but usually between 120 and 140.....They do work for his cholesterol and B.P...better. One thing I will say is that D has a family history that is strong for Diabetes...( both parents...2 of his 4 sibs..and one of which is an amputee, going blind, and pacemaker who is now 69)....The meds will most likely be in the future but controlling it with diet I agree makes sense right now.....

Last night I sat around...and watched my football team lose their second straight! This just doesn't happen with OU football. I guess with everything else, things change. So disgusted with the game, went out to DH's bonfire for a while.

 

Stayed out there for awhile...until I got cold. I also snacked on some pumpkin spice yogurt covered pretzels, after 7:00 pm, so expected my blood sugar to be high...

Up this morning by 7:00 and then DH and I went on our hike. This is French Creek trails and we have never been on these before so we didn't quite know where we were going and then it started raining, so it was cold and we were irritable. 

We went on these stairs on the way back...steeper and bigger than they look. Work out getting up to the top.

Other pictures I took...of French Creek Nature Trails

 And last one, this was from the top of a ridge looking down at the creek. The water looked so clean and clear...I wondered if people lived here back in the day....

 

We decided to eat at Wendy's this morning on the way home...we are so weak...

Checked the blood sugar before eating it was 117 this morning - lowest it has been...so crazy.

I had the maple bacon croissant again...and vanilla iced coffee.

Dinner will be the grilled chicken, tomato, cucumber salad with a little rotini pasta. We like this, it is easy and I have avacado to use before it goes bad.

Doing laundry and looking forward to the Browns playing...hoping for win #3....

 

Have a great day! IP

So happy for you that your bs has come down. I love these photos. The bonfire is beautiful! And I ALWAYS love wooden walking bridges. Are they far from where you live?

Love the photos. Looks like a very nice trail.

Great the blood sugar is down.

Great blood sugar...all that walking helps greatly...love the pics.

Well done on the blood sugar levels!

I love a bonfire, but then all my clothes end up smelling like smoke. And it's in my hair too. So shower and laundry afterwards. But they are quite enjoyable and relaxing.

Those steps look like butt busters for sure! Oh ouch!

your dinner sounds AMAZING! (the one you made)

next, your photos are also beautiful. i love the steps and bridge.

also, why was there a bonfire?

innerpeace on 10/05/2020:
Because DH chopped down a tree and wanted to burn the twigs and branches. It is cool also.
