Decorating, Resting, Weight, and Shopping in One Post
Quite honestly, I am not sure where to go with today's blog post. I am probably like most of you, trying to keep my head above water, and not get a flare-up. Speaking of flare-ups, last week I got a cortisone shot in my right knee and it feels so much better, but I am seriously thinking of asking for one in my left knee. Arthritis in both knees is not fun. Actually, arthritis anywhere is not good, but such is life; moreover, I put some serious wear and tear on my knees when I was younger. I am thankful for the good years they gave me.
Some of you may be wondering how the green coffee extract is working for me. So far, I do not feel any caffeine effects, which goes along with the research I did on what other people had said about GCE. I am still keeping my food journal, also I include the time I take medicine and supplements, as well as what they are. Now, for the good part -- I have lost four pounds! Woohoo! That takes me back to where I was before Thanksgiving, and I have been able to go to dinners and parties -- two of them. However, I know of times this has been my undoing, so I am a happy lady. By the way, moderate low-carb is keeping my blood sugar at an even keel. That's a good thing too.
So goes the 2012 Christmas Season for me so far. Most of the presents are ready to be wrapped, and I plan to start that soon -- one or two a day. God bless you all at this wonderful time of year. I pray for you to enjoy the blessings and good memories of past Christmases as well.
Also, check out what I have to say on my right sidebar about one of my favorite online shopping places who I happen to be an affiliate with. I will give you a hint -- think of strong, tall woman, who is a warrior. And aren't we warriors too, guys and gals? We are fighting fibromyalgia and other chronic diseases, as well as finding ways to live our lives happily and more fully. Merry Christmas!
