  • Judg -- you sound a bit bue.............. its okay to vent a bit here. Its your journal - no need to apologize.

    Heat drags me down to! If the temps get over 85 I'm a big limp noodle, and I don't sleep well in the heat either. I don't use the A/C until it gets up near 90 cuz I'm just too cheap! Today I'm using it cuz I needed to get this house cleaned up, and I just couldn't do it with the high temps.

    I stopped taking my fish oil since I eat so much fish it hardly seems necessary - and I've never seen an improvement in my cholesterol while taking it. Sometimes I think all these supplements are just another thing we've been brain washed into believing we NEED or we'll surely die of malnourishment! There are a few that I know I need - the multi-vitamin, iron, calcium, B complex, D and the adrenal support that doc just gave me. Its a big expense for sure!

    I hope you're feeling better, and I hope this heat wave ends for all of us! I can't imagine what fruit and veggies prices are going to do after all this dought and heat. It surely won't be good.

    Have a good weekend - fun, but not to tiring!

      You could always get a sledgehammer, relieve some stress and get a workout by swinging it around the yard.

      I feel your pain on this one. We don't have A/C at my place either and were dealing with 100+ days. This week has been much milder, but we're back up to 95+ next week. One thing that was really nice was having frozen fruit (berries, cherries, apricots, bananas, etc), then blending really thick smoothies out of it. Consistency is almost like sorbet. It's very refreshing, but I can easily go overboard on the fruit carbs/fructose consumption. Will sometimes toss in a raw egg or two or coconut milk to help balance out the macronutrients a bit. My favorite lately though has been Cherries, lime juice, and couple pieces of dark chocolate. Fortunately we ran out of cherries after I made this three times, before it became a daily thing indulgence.

      Saw an article about corn prices possibly skyrocketing, which I didn't care much about. But honestly hadn't considered that it could really will impact things across the bored. Hopefully won't be too bad.

          • Hi Judg, just catching up with your journal .
            We're still sleeping with our duvets, temperatures are nowhere near summer temps here . They said on the news it's been raining more these last 2 weeks than normally in a whole summer! Yesterday we didn't even reach 15C .

            • Hi Judg, haven't seen you around lately! Busy with the grandkids?

              One problem with the grain/corn prices going up is that will mean great hardship for our brethren who live in the undeveloped world - the people who walk miles to market once a week, buy wheat, carry it back for miles, grind it themselves, cook it and subsist on it. Now I'm not made of money, and a modest rise in food prices might cause me to complain, but it won't lead to deprivation. It's easy to shrug and say, "I don't eat wheat and corn," but it's not that simple. There will be less food for the poorer people, not the middle-class ones.

              Okay, I will get off my soapbox now.

                        • This is when a journal thread gets sad or scary. You start worrying about the person, thinking about the reasons why they might be gone. You end up hoping they have just gone on a food bender, and feel too abashed to report in, because it is so much better than the alternatives.

                          • I'm sure its nothing - maybe she just needed to take a break or maybe her computer took a dive. Maybe they took an unexpected vacation? I hope its nothing bad...........

                            • Mea culpa. So sorry people. No big reasons for being AWOL, just a combination of little ones. I've been feeling stretched and worn. I think it's partly the summer whirl around here, with hubby being around all the time (although working from an upstairs bedroom a lot) and wanting to get out and see people, with Translator Son and wife popping out babies and buying a house and all, and visitors coming (a couple coming soon to our place). And I've been draggy because of those supplements, although I think I'm finally starting to come around in that department. Frequent sleeping problems haven't helped much. And I think I was just a little burnt out. I was also getting tired of thinking about food quite that much. So I didn't check in for a couple of days, and once I'm behind on something, I get psyched out.

                              When in doubt, send a private message. That will turn up in my email inbox.

                              Anyway, I am so sorry to have worried you all, and I thank you so much for all the good wishes. It will probably take me a few days to get through everybody's journals again, so please bear with me. I hope all is well with all of you.

                              So, I am still holding the course. I haven't been losing weight though, probably from lack of real movement plus the occasional summer indulgence. Fortunately I found out that hubby's favourite gelato place has pure fruit, sugar-free choices. They don't taste like they're artificially sweetened, but I'll try to get in some time when the chef is around to ask. They make their own from scratch. On the other hand, I'm not gaining, so I'll take that as a victory.
