You think your life sucks. I have spent the better part of the day trying to pass a kidney stone. Not much eating, no exercise, just a trip to the medical lab and lying on my back at home in pain. I bet you feel better about your life already. Sorry for the rant but I just wanted to keep in touch. Better days are ahead for us all.
I heard that's very painful.....that pretty much qualifies as a medical emergency I'd say, pass for you on this day.
This weeks goals:
1. Cals between 1200 and 1400 (rolling average) 1311, 1292
2. One green tea per day. M-Y. T-N (eek forgot)
3. Increase Omega 3. M-Y, T-Y
Busy day, worked all day, went for an MRI after work, then to my niece's dance show, then groceries, finally got home at 10:15. I WILL have 2 green tea tomorrow. Off to do yoga and then bed.

Reason: add a line
Thanks and gigantic (((hugs))) to you all. Thanks for the support and encouragement. I really appreciate it. I think I've shaken off the grumps and am back on track now.
Well, intellectually and emotionally back on track. Nutritionally, not so much, hehe. The family wanted Chinese for dinner and, hey, who am I to deny them? So, now I've got a belly full of potstickers, lo mein, fried rice and spring rolls and I enjoyed every bite. Sodium, pow! Through the roof. Calories? Right up there with the sodium. Fiber, pffft, what's that? I know the scale will yell at me tomorrow (and I know it's water weight, but I still hate bad numbers), but at least these bad numbers will have a reason behind them. I can live with that (like I have a choice, eh?).
I'll catch up on posts tomorrow. Soooo much work to be done!

I wrote "...So, now I've got a belly full of potstickers..."
To which Mike responded "WTH? O.o"
Potstickers are delightful little doughy dumplings filled with some sort of meat/vegetable combo (the filling can vary). I first had them with a friend in San Francisco and fell in love with 'em! According to Wikipedia:
Jiǎozi (simplified Chinese: 饺子; traditional Chinese: 餃子; Japanese: 餃子(gyōza); Vietnamese: bánh chẻo; Nepali: म:म: or ममचा) or pot sticker is a Chinese dumpling widely spread to Nepal, Japan, Eastern and Western Asia.
Jiaozi typically consists of a ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped into a thinly rolled piece of dough, which is then sealed by pressing the edges together or by crimping. Jiaozi should not be confused with wonton; jiaozi has a thicker skin and a relatively flatter, more oblate, double-saucer like shape (similar in shape to ravioli), and is usually eaten with a soy-vinegar dipping sauce (and/or hot chili sauce); while wontons have thinner skin, have square skins, and are usually served in broth. The dough for the jiaozi and wonton wrapper also consist of different ingredients.
There's much more to the Wikipedia article, but this intro pretty much sums it up. Bottom line: potstickers = deliciousness!
Thank you for your well wishes. The pain has subsided but I still feel weak. No exercise and I am trying to figure out what to eat. Plenty of water with lemon to drink. Waiting for a call from the doctor. Hangin in there.
